Product description


"Astronomers, mathematicians, and physicists have barely got to grips with chaos, except as a 'problem' to be overcome. This book gives an excellent introduction to some of the issues and should be of interest to readers of all backgrounds." The Observatory "Here is a book for all who thought that there was nothing new in Newtonian mechanics." New Scientist
