**The Chaos Hypertextbook**

by Glenn Elert

2007

**Description**:

This book is written for anyone with an interest in chaos, fractals, non-linear dynamics, or mathematics in general. It's a moderately heavy piece of work, requiring a bit of mathematical knowledge, but it is definitely not aimed at mathematicians.
