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.

Author invites readers from a wide range of backgrounds to explore the beauty and excitement of dynamical systems. Written for readers who want to continue exploring mathematics beyond linear algebra, but are not ready for highly abstract material.
by Jaime E. Villate
In this book we explore some topics on dynamical systems, using an active teaching approach, supported by computing tools. The subject of this book on dynamical systems is at the borderline of physics, mathematics and computing.
