Elementary Symbolic Dynamics and Chaos in Dissipative Systems
by Bai-Lin Hao
Publisher: World Scientific 1989
Number of pages: 475
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.

This book provides a systematic treatment of the mathematical underpinnings of work in data assimilation. Authors develop a framework in which a Bayesian formulation of the problem provides the bedrock for the derivation and analysis of algorithms.

Nonlinear dynamics (''chaos theory'') and quantum mechanics are two of the scientific triumphs of the 20th century. The author gives a brief review of the origin and fundamentals of both quantum mechanics and nonlinear dynamics.
