Description:
With this unique book, Scheinerman invites readers from a wide range of backgrounds with limited technical prerequisites to explore the beauty and excitement of dynamical systems in particular, and of mathematics in general. The book is designed for readers who want to continue exploring mathematics beyond linear algebra, but are not ready for highly abstract material. Rather than taking a standard mathematical theorem-proof-corollary-remark approach to dynamical systems, it stresses the intuition, ideology, and appreciation that is open to everyone.

This monograph presents a systematic analysis of the singularities in the transition processes for dynamical systems. We study general dynamical systems, with dependence on a parameter, and construct relaxation times that depend on three variables.
