9780198500773: From Calculus to Chaos: An Introduction to Dynamics
Review:


"Despite public interest, it has been difficult to find a suitable introductory book on chaos for mathematics students. In 'From Calculus to Chaos', David Acheson manages to bridge the gap, tie the topic into the undergraduate curriculum, throw in some history and practical techniques, and tell readers about an experimental basis of dynamical systems theory--all this without being stuffy."--New Scientist


"This is a thoroughly excellent little book and a most valuable addition to the literature on dynamics. Its approach is quite unique, bringing together a vast range of real physical phenomena and elucidating the essential dynamics by means of well chosen toy models in the form of differential equations. All the necessary analytical techniques are slipped in with the minimum of fuss, and numerical methods are employed throughout in such a way that the reader is encouraged to use the computer as an experimental tool. . . .the book deserves a place on the shelves of all serious students, teachers, and researchers." --UK Nonlinear News


"The book is quite suitable as a text in dynamics and can serve as a refresher for those wishing to see how applied math courses they struggle through can be made simple."--Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society


"This short introductory-level book illustrates several important ideas of contemporary research in nonlinear dynamics by the numerical solution of rigid solids and fluids examples. . . .[m]ost of the complex phenomena currently studied in nonlinear dynamics are modeled by equations whose properties can only be uncovered by numerical methods or by more oblique analytic attacks on their qualitative behavior. Students would likely be more successful if they have this library of physical examples with which to test ideas." --Applied Mechanics Reviews


"Acheson presents an introduction to the calculus-based development of dynamics (continuous dynamical systems). The text is a beautiful historical re

Review:

The author has been really successful in combining very intuitive mathematics with very intuitive physics in a highly readable book.....this is a most advisable book for first year courses on applied calculus, dynamics or introductory physics (or for a part of such courses). It will be also very useful to science teachers in schools and to general readers interested in science who wish to use their home computers to keep up with an important aspect of physical science. ( Institute of Physics)

Using carefully selected examples, from the time of Newton to the present day the author demonstrates in a highly readable form what we usually call the mathematization of physical problems. ( European Mathematical Society Newsletter, issue 27, March 1998)

The project as a whole succeeds well, and the book deserves to be on the shelves of people ranging from school science teachers to undergraduates in mathematics and physics....The last chapter deals with stability of inverted pendulums, and gives an excellent rounded account of how the theory, experiments, and simulations interact to explain this fascinating effect...The material presented here is a fascinating and unpretentious sweep through the subject, and it would make an ideal course text at undergraduate level, or an individual study book for well-motivated 'A' level readers...The aim of giving the reader insight into a wide array of dynamical problems using very elementary mathematics is achieved well, and the excellent selection of examples and historical asides adds depth to the topics covered.

I enjoyed reading this book and learned quite a lot from it. I recommend it to anyone who - like myself - knows calculus better than chaos, and would like to begin rectifying the situation as painlessly as possible

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1998. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. New.. 230 x 158 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. What is calculus really for? This book is a highly readable introduction to applications of calculus, from Newton s time to the present day. These often involve questions of dynamics, i.e. of how - and why - things change with time. Problems of this kind lie at the heart of much of applied mathematics, physics, and engineering. From Calculus to Chaos takes a fresh approach to the subject as a whole, by moving from first steps to the frontiers, and by highlighting only the most important and interesting ideas, which can get lost amid a snowstorm of detail in conventional texts. The book is aimed at a wide readership, and assumes only some knowledge of elementary calculus. There are exercises (with full solutions) and simple but powerful computer programs which are suitable even for readers with no previous computing experience. David Acheson s book will inspire new students by providing a foretaste of more advanced mathematics and showing just how interesting the subject can be. Nº de ref. de la librería AOP9780198500773
