**Dynamical Systems and Chaos**

by Evans M. Harrell II

2000

**Description**:

These class notes are suitable for an introductory course on dynamical systems and chaos, taken by mathematicians, engineers, and physicists. This text concentrates on models rather than proofs in order to bring out the concepts of dynamics and chaos. Theorems are carefully stated, though only occasionally proved.
