Complex and Adaptive Dynamical Systems: A Primer
by Claudius Gros
Publisher: arXiv 2008
Number of pages: 276
This textbook covers a wide range of concepts, notions and phenomena of a truly interdisciplinary subject of rapidly growing importance. Complex system theory deals with dynamical systems containing a very large number of variables, showing a plethora of emergent features, arising in a broad range of contexts.

The aim of this book is to show some applications of fractal analysis in the sciences. The first chapter introduces the readers to the book, while the second chapter shows the methods and challenges of fractal analysis of time-series data sets...

A certain category of infinite strings of letters on a finite alphabet is presented here, chosen among the 'simplest' possible one may build, both because they are very deterministic and because they are built by simple rules.

This tutorial will develop the basics ingredients necessary for modeling simple non-linear dynamical systems. The goal is to demonstrate you that you can develop significant insight into the behavior of non-linear systems with just a little math.

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.
