Summary 
"This new edition strives to provide teachers with a working knowledge of chaos theory and dynamical systems through parallel introductory explanations in the book and interaction with carefullyselected programs supplied on the accompanying CDROM. The programs enable readers, especially advancedundergraduate students in physics, engineering, and math, to tackle relevant physical systems quickly on their PCs, without distraction from algorithmic details." "For the third edition of Chaos: A Program Collection for the PCs, each of the previous twelve programs is polished and rewritten in C++ (both Windows and Linux versions are included). A new program treats kicked systems, an important class of two dimensional problems, which is introduced in Chapter 13. Each chapter follows the structure: theoretical background; numerical techniques; interaction with the program; computer experiments; real experiments and empirical evidence; reference."Jacket
