CAIRO BOOKS's Description
It has been discovered over the past few decades that even motions in simple
systems can have complex and surprising properties. This volume provides a
clear introduction to these chaotic phenomena, based on geometrical
interpretations and simple arguments, without the need for prior in-depth
scientific and mathematical knowledge. Richly illustrated throughout, its
examples are taken from classical mechanics whose elementary laws are familiar
to the reader. In order to emphasize the general features of chaos, the most
important relations are also given in simple mathematical forms, independent of
any mechanical interpretation.
