Nonlinearity, Chaos, and Complexity

The Dynamics of Natural and Social Systems

Cristoforo Sergio Bertuglia and Franco Vaio

Covering a broad range of topics, this text provides a comprehensive survey of the modeling of chaotic dynamics and complexity in the natural and social sciences. Its attention to models in both the physical and social sciences and the detailed philosophical approach make this a unique text in the midst of many current books on chaos and complexity. Including an extensive index and bibliography along with numerous examples and simplified models, this is an ideal course text.
