Around the Boundary of Complex Dynamics
by Roland K. W. Roeder
Publisher: arXiv 2015
Number of pages: 56
We introduce the exciting field of complex dynamics at an undergraduate level while reviewing, reinforcing, and extending the ideas learned in an typical first course on complex analysis. Julia sets and the famous Mandelbrot set will be introduced and interesting properties of their boundaries will be described.

Class notes for an introductory course on dynamical systems and chaos for mathematicians, physicists, and engineers. The text concentrates on models rather than proofs in order to bring out the concepts of dynamics and chaos.

This book addresses the following topics: Iterations and fixed points; bifurcations; conjugacy; space and time averages; the contraction fixed point theorem; Hutchinson's theorem and fractal images; hyperbolicity; and symbolic dynamics.

This set of lectures gives a synthetic exposition for the study of one-parameter bifurcation problems. By this, we mean the analysis of the structure of their set of solutions through the same type of general arguments in various situations.
