Elementary Symbolic Dynamics and Chaos in Dissipative Systems
by Bai-Lin Hao
Publisher: World Scientific 1989
Number of pages: 475
This book is a monograph on chaos in dissipative systems written for those working in the physical sciences. Emphasis is on symbolic description of the dynamics and various characteristics of the attractors, and written from the view-point of practical applications without going into formal mathematical rigour. The author used elementary mathematics and calculus, and relied on physical intuition whenever possible.

There has been a considerable progress made during the recent past on mathematical techniques for studying dynamical systems. This progress is due to our increasing ability to mathematically model physical processes and to analyze and solve them.

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.

These notes describe several situations in dynamics where the notion of valuations on rings provides a simple language in which to describe and exploit hyperbolicity. This approach goes a little beyond simply providing a convenient language.

This set of lectures gives a synthetic exposition for the study of one-parameter bifurcation problems. By this, we mean the analysis of the structure of their set of solutions through the same type of general arguments in various situations.
