Customer Review

on 8 July 1999
This is an excellent overview of dynamics from the birth of calculus to the latest research in nonlinear dynamics - it bears all the marks of being well-honed under the test of teaching the material to students. As a physicist, Acheson doesn't get hung up on mathematical niceties at the expense of the meaning of things. A great feature is the inclusion of little computer programs written in QBASIC so that you can explore things for yourself. In the mid-1980s there were dozens of books that took this programming approach; all power to Acheson for reviving it in the face of "multimedia maths".
