Chaos: Classical and Quantum
by Predrag Cvitanovic
Publisher: ChaosBook.org 2008
Number of pages: 813
The book is a self-contained graduate textbook on classical and quantum chaos. Your professor does not know this material, so you are on your own. We will teach you how to evaluate a determinant, take a logarithm–stuff like that.

This textbook covers a wide range of concepts, notions and phenomena of a truly interdisciplinary subject. Complex system theory deals with dynamical systems containing a very large number of variables, showing a plethora of emergent features.

We introduce the exciting field of complex dynamics at an undergraduate level while reviewing, reinforcing, and extending the ideas learned in an typical first course on complex analysis. Julia sets and the famous Mandelbrot set will be introduced...

This book covers important topics like stability, hyperbolicity, bifurcation theory and chaos, topics which are essential to understand the behavior of nonlinear discrete dynamical systems. The theory is illuminated by examples and exercises.

The notes describe the methodology called Variational Modelling, and focus on the application to the modelling of gradient-flow systems. I describe the methodology itself in great detail, and explain why this is a rational modelling route.
