**An Introduction to Dynamical Systems and Chaos**

by Marc Spiegelman

**Publisher**: LDEO 1997**Number of pages**: 67

**Description**:

This tutorial will develop the basic ingredients necessary for modeling and understanding simple (and not so simple) non-linear dynamical systems. The goal of these exercises are to demonstrate you that you can develop significant insight into the behavior of complicated non-linear systems with just a little math, a little art and a little modeling software.
