Number of pages: 106
We review some basic notions in ergodic theory and thermodynamic formalism, as well as introductory results in the context of max-plus algebra, in order to exhibit some properties of equilibrium measures when temperature goes to zero.

We introduce the exciting field of complex dynamics at an undergraduate level while reviewing, reinforcing, and extending the ideas learned in an typical first course on complex analysis. Julia sets and the famous Mandelbrot set will be introduced...

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.
