Chaos, fractals and dynamics computer experiments in mathematics
by Robert L Devaney
(
Visual
)
4 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide "Robert Devaney communicates his deep understanding as well as his enthusiasm for chaos, fractals, and dynamical systems. Starting at a level suitable for wellprepared high school students, he tells the mathematical story behind these fascinating topics. Equations and graphs are clearly shown with computergenerated characters, and Devaney's explanations are lucid and instructive. Illustrating the mathematics are forays into the colorful, unpredictable world of fractals and Julia sets. Devaney explains how the computer is used to generate the pictures and shows how the various colors are chosen for graphical representations ... Though the mathematical background required is elementary, those at the collegiate level and beyond will appreciate ... the clarity of exposition and the sheer beauty of the graphics."Container

Introducing Mathematica
by Stephen Wolfram
(
Visual
)
3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Mathematica creator, Dr. Stephen Wolfram, demonstrates and explains how to use this awardwinning software on a Macintosh IIx microcomputer. The presentation is in two parts: 1. introduction to Mathematica, and, 2. how to use Mathematica to solve mathematical problems. Dr. Wolfram concludes the presentation with a discussion of the programming capabilities of the language of Mathematica
The beauty and complexity of the Mandelbrot set
by John H Hubbard
(
Visual
)
4 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Hubbard explains iteration and how it is used to create pictures of Julia and Mandelbrot sets, as well as the electric fields which would surround electrically charged objects shaped like them. The program concludes with remarks about these sets and the field of genetics and their relations

)
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Presenting a paper on lattice vibrations as an educational demonstration model, the authors of the paper plus a panel of experts demonstrate how computer and video technology can be used to speed up and enhance the transfer of information between themselves and other experts
Transition to chaos the orbit diagram and the Mandelbrot Set
by Robert L Devaney
(
Visual
)
2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide In this lecture Prof. Robert L. Devaney explores and explains two of the more fascinating images that arise in the study of Dynamical Systems, namely the orbit (or bifurcation) diagram and the Mandelbrot Set. Both of these images arise when a quadratic function is iterated, so the level of mathematical sophistication necessary to understand the lecture is minimal. The main goal of the lecture is to describe the relationship between these two images, how they are generated as well as what they mean mathematically

by Percy Deift
(

)
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide A videotext (i.e., a paper + a video) presentation of the recent work of Percy Deift, Thomas Kriecherbauer, and Stephanos Venakides on forced lattice vibrations. "The basic idea is that technical information is transmitted most efficiently in mathematics when one mathematician explains his/her work to another mathematician onetoone at a blackboard. In an attempt to simulate this experience for a larger audience, the authors chose a panel of eight mathematicians, and presented their work to them. The presentation/discussion was recorded on videocamera at the UC Berkeley Media Center during the workshop Dynamical Systems Methods Designed for PDEs, March 1418 1994"Insert in supplement
