9780199566440: Chaos and Fractals: An Elementary Introduction

This book provides the reader with an elementary introduction to chaos and fractals, suitable for students with a background in elementary algebra, without assuming prior coursework in calculus or physics. It introduces the key phenomena of chaos - aperiodicity, sensitive dependence on initial conditions, bifurcations - via simple iterated functions. Fractals are introduced as self-similar geometric objects and analyzed with the self-similarity and box-counting dimensions. After a brief discussion of power laws, subsequent chapters explore Julia Sets and the Mandelbrot Set. The last part of the book examines two-dimensional dynamical systems, strange attractors, cellular automata, and chaotic differential equations.

The book is richly illustrated and includes over 200 end-of-chapter exercises. A flexible format and a clear and succinct writing style make it a good choice for introductory courses in chaos and fractals.

Book Description:

For the right audience and instructor, this is a wonderful book. With considerable effort on both sides it can take a wide audience with modest mathematics to a reasonable understanding of what is behind much of the complex phenomena seen in modern mathematical models of the physical universe. ( Thomas B. Ward, Zentralblatt MATH)

This is an excellent book, and is highly recommended. ( Mark Hunacek, Mathematical Association of America)

The only textbook on chaos and fractals for non-science and mathematics majors. Covers central phenomena and ideas of chaos and fractals in a careful, intellectually honest, but accessible way. ( L'Enseignement Mathematique (2) 59)

Chaos and fractals are two intertwined concepts that have revolutionized many areas of science and renewed popular interest in mathematics over the past few decades. Feldman's book is a rich resource for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of these subjects without the need for advanced mathematics. ( Julien Clinton Sprott, University of Wisconsin-Madison)

The style of writing is easy on the reader. The explanations are clear and illustrated with many diagrams and side notes....[Feldman] has produced an excellent book. ( John Sykes, Mathematics in School)

David P. Feldman provides a delightful and thoughtful introduction to chaos and fractals requiring only a good background in algebra. The formal treatment of nonlinear dynamics, chaotic behavior, Lyapunov exponents, and fractal dimensions is leavened with creative analogies and many helpful and visually attractive figures and diagrams. Even more mathematically sophisticated readers will find this book a good starting point in exploring the complex and beguiling realms of chaos and fractals. ( Robert C. Hilborn, Associate Executive Officer, American Association of Physics Teachers)

For the right audience and instructor, this is a wonderful book. With considerable effort on both sides it can take a wide audience with modest mathematics to a reasonable understanding of what is behind much of the complex phenomena seen in modern mathematical models of the physical universe. ( Thomas B. Ward, Durham University)

The book is very well produced, with excellent diagrams and very informative notes provided beside the main text. It also provides an extensive list of references for further reading. ( Scottish Mathematical Council Journal)

About the Author:

David Feldman joined the faculty at College of the Atlantic in 1998, having completed a PhD in Physics at the University of California. He served as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs from 2003 - 2007. At C.O.A. Feldman has taught over twenty different courses in physics, mathematics, and computer science. Feldman's research interests lie in the fields of statistical mechanics and nonlinear dynamics. In his research, he uses both analytic and computational techniques. Feldman has authored research papers in journals including Physical Review E, Chaos, and Advances in Complex Systems. He has recently begun a research project looking at trends in extreme precipitation events in Maine.
