Invitation to Dynamical Systems
by Edward R. Scheinerman
Publisher: Prentice Hall College Div 2000
Number of pages: 384
With this unique book, Scheinerman invites readers from a wide range of backgrounds with limited technical prerequisites to explore the beauty and excitement of dynamical systems in particular, and of mathematics in general. The book is designed for readers who want to continue exploring mathematics beyond linear algebra, but are not ready for highly abstract material. Rather than taking a standard mathematical theorem-proof-corollary-remark approach to dynamical systems, it stresses the intuition, ideology, and appreciation that is open to everyone.

Addressing researchers and graduate students in the active meeting ground of analysis, geometry, and dynamics, this book presents a study of renormalization of quadratic polynomials and a rapid introduction to techniques in complex dynamics.
by Glenn Elert
This book is written for anyone with an interest in chaos, fractals, non-linear dynamics, or mathematics in general. It's a moderately heavy piece of work, requiring a bit of mathematical knowledge, but it is definitely not aimed at mathematicians.

This is a graduate textbook on classical and quantum chaos, applicable to problems of physics, chemistry and other sciences. It represents an attempt to formulate the subject as one of the cornerstones of the graduate physics curriculum of future.
