An Introduction to Dynamical Systems and Chaos
by Marc Spiegelman
Publisher: LDEO 1997
Number of pages: 67
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.

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.

This article will take up the question of what underlies the quantum formalism, whether it can be derived from simpler mathematical structures, and if so, what physical properties a system must possess in order for the formalism to hold.
