Contents Overview and Basic Concepts -- Nonlinear Dynamics and Deterministic Chaos -- Billiard Systems -- Gravitational Billiards: The Wedge -- The Double Pendulum -- Chaotic Scattering -- Fermi Acceleration -- The Duffing Oscillator -- Feigenbaum Scenario -- Nonlinear Electronic Circuits -- Mandelbrot and Julia Sets -- Ordinary Differential Equations -- Kicked Systems
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 carefully-selected programs supplied on the accompanying CD-ROM. The programs enable readers, especially advanced-undergraduate 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
