Chaos in dynamical systems. 2nd ed. (English) Zbl 1006.37001

Cambridge: Cambridge University Press (ISBN 0-521-81196-1/pbk; 0-521-01084-5/hbk). xii, 478 p. (2002).
This second edition updates and expands the first edition (see Zbl 0792.58014). A new chapter on control and synchronization of chaos is included (Chapter 10). This chapter covers such topics as control by a feedback, controlling a steadily running chaotic process, targeting, stability of chaotic set on an invariant manifold, identical, phase, and generalized synchronization of chaotic systems. Further additions concern riddled basins of attraction, phase locking of globally coupled oscillators, fractal aspects of fluid advection by Lagrangian chaotic flows, magnetic dynamos and strange nonchaotic attractors. Also, new homework problems for students have been added.
This very comprehensive book on chaotic dynamics is intended to use in a graduate course for scientists and engineers. It can also be used as a reference for researchers in the field of nonlinear dynamics.
