Summary

The first text to introduce modern topics in dynamical systems at the undergraduate level, the book integrates both theory and computer experiments into its coverage of contemporary ideas. A classic, it offers a gradual introduction to the basic mathematical ideas behind such topics as chaos, fractals, Newton's method, symbolic dynamics, the Julia set, and the Mandelbrot set. It includes biographies of some of the leading researchers in the field. The new edition offers a heavily revised chapter on chaos and an emphasis on encouraging student research and experiment. The book is accessible to readers with only a background in calculus. Many new examples and exercises and updated references.
