Dynamical Systems and Chaos
by Evans M. Harrell II
These class notes are suitable for an introductory course on dynamical systems and chaos, taken by mathematicians, engineers, and physicists. This text concentrates on models rather than proofs in order to bring out the concepts of dynamics and chaos. Theorems are carefully stated, though only occasionally proved.

This textbook covers a wide range of concepts, notions and phenomena of a truly interdisciplinary subject. Complex system theory deals with dynamical systems containing a very large number of variables, showing a plethora of emergent features.

This book covers important topics like stability, hyperbolicity, bifurcation theory and chaos, topics which are essential to understand the behavior of nonlinear discrete dynamical systems. The theory is illuminated by examples and exercises.

There has been a considerable progress made during the recent past on mathematical techniques for studying dynamical systems. This progress is due to our increasing ability to mathematically model physical processes and to analyze and solve them.

This book provides an introduction to ordinary differential equations and dynamical systems. We start with some simple examples of explicitly solvable equations. Then we prove the fundamental results concerning the initial value problem.
