9780511608339: Chaos and Complexity in Astrophysics

The discipline of nonlinear dynamics has developed explosively in all areas of physics over the last two decades. This comprehensive primer summarizes the main developments in the mathematical theory of dynamical systems, chaos, pattern formation and complexity. An introduction to mathematical concepts and techniques is given in the first part of the book, before being applied to stellar, interstellar, galactic and large scale complex phenomena in the Universe. Oded Regev demonstrates the possible application of ideas including strange attractors, Poincaré sections, fractals, bifurcations, and complex spatial patterns, to specific astrophysical problems.

Book Description:

The discipline of nonlinear dynamics, or chaos, has developed explosively in all areas of physics over the last two decades. This comprehensive primer for researchers and graduate students of astrophysics provides the necessary investigative tools to explore chaotic and complex phenomena. Mathematical concepts and techniques are introduced in the first part of the book, before being applied to a variety of astrophysical systems. The book demonstrates the application of ideas such as strange attractors, Poincaré sections, fractals, bifurcations and complex spatial patterns to specific astrophysical problems.
