**Discrete Dynamical Systems**

by Arild Wikan

**Publisher**: Bookboon 2013**ISBN-13**: 9788740303278**Number of pages**: 254

**Description**:

This book covers important topics like stability, hyperbolicity, bifurcation theory and chaos, topics which are essential in order to understand the fascinating behavior of nonlinear discrete dynamical systems. The theory is illuminated by several examples and exercises, many of them taken from population dynamical studies. Solution methods of linear systems as well as solution methods of discrete optimization (control) problems are also included.
