**Publisher**: World Scientific 1989**ISBN/ASIN**: 9971506823**ISBN-13**: 9789971506827**Number of pages**: 475

**Description**:

This book is a monograph on chaos in dissipative systems written for those working in the physical sciences. Emphasis is on symbolic description of the dynamics and various characteristics of the attractors, and written from the view-point of practical applications without going into formal mathematical rigour. The author used elementary mathematics and calculus, and relied on physical intuition whenever possible.
