Abstract:

You don't have to be fluent in math and physics to be curious about the dynamics of order and chaos and the geometry of fractals. Nor do you need to have special expertise to understand what these ideas reveal about the natural world. Chaos Under control introduces you to the rich concepts driving the new science of complexity. You will discover the principles behind some of the most talked-about research and findings of our time. You will see some astonishing examples and applications of these concepts and with the book's accompanying software, you can turn a Macintosh computer into a window of discovery, through which you can watch fractal and chaotic phenomena come to life visually.
