By Gerard Iooss, Daniel D. Joseph

This considerably revised moment version teaches the bifurcation of asymptotic options to evolution difficulties ruled via nonlinear differential equations. Written not only for mathematicians, it appeals to the widest viewers of newcomers, together with engineers, biologists, chemists, physicists and economists. therefore, it makes use of simply recognized tools of classical research at starting place point, whereas the functions and examples are especially selected to be as diversified as attainable.

**An Introduction to Chaos in Nonequilibrium Statistical Mechanics**

This ebook is an creation to the functions in nonequilibrium statistical mechanics of chaotic dynamics, and in addition to using recommendations in statistical mechanics vital for an knowing of the chaotic behaviour of fluid platforms. the elemental innovations of dynamical structures idea are reviewed and straightforward examples are given.

**Labyrinth of Thought: A History of Set Theory and Its Role in Modern Mathematics**

"José Ferreirós has written a magisterial account of the heritage of set conception that's panoramic, balanced, and interesting. not just does this booklet synthesize a lot prior paintings and supply clean insights and issues of view, however it additionally includes a significant innovation, a full-fledged remedy of the emergence of the set-theoretic method in arithmetic from the early 19th century.

**Computational Physics: Problem Solving with Python**

Using computation and simulation has turn into a necessary a part of the medical method. with the ability to rework a idea into an set of rules calls for major theoretical perception, targeted actual and mathematical realizing, and a operating point of competency in programming. This upper-division textual content presents an strangely vast survey of the themes of contemporary computational physics from a multidisciplinary, computational technological know-how viewpoint.
