**Introduction to Dynamical Systems: A Hands-on Approach with Maxima**

by Jaime E. Villate

2006**ISBN/ASIN**: 9729939608**Number of pages**: 43

**Description**:

In this book we explore some topics on dynamical systems, using an active teaching approach, supported by computing tools and trying to avoid too may abstract details. The subject of this book on dynamical systems is at the borderline of physics, mathematics and computing.
