Overview

Celebrated mathematician Shlomo Sternberg, a pioneer in the field of dynamical systems, created this modern one-semester introduction to the subject for his classes at Harvard University. Its wide-ranging treatment covers one-dimensional dynamics, differential equations, random walks, iterated function systems, symbolic dynamics, and Markov chains. Supplementary materials offer a variety of online components, including PowerPoint lecture slides for professors and MATLAB exercises.
"Even though there are many dynamical systems books on the market, this book is bound to become a classic. The theory is explained with attractive stories illustrating the theory of dynamical systems, such as the Newton method, the Feigenbaum renormalization picture, fractal geometry, the Perron-Frobenius mechanism, and Google PageRank." — Oliver Knill, PhD, Preceptor of Mathematics, Harvard University.
