By Thomas P. Weissert

An creation to definite elements of advancements within the glossy idea of dynamics and simulation for a large viewers of scientifically literate readers. not like basic texts on chaos idea and dynamical structures conception, this booklet follows the paintings on a particular challenge on the very starting of the fashionable period of dynamics, from its inception in 1954 throughout the early Seventies. It discusses such difficulties because the nonlinear oscillator simulation, the seminal discoveries at MIT within the early Fifties, the mathematical rediscovery of solitons within the overdue Fifties and the final difficulties of computability. In following those advancements, the preliminary improvement of a few of the now average ideas of nonlinear modelling and numerical simulation are noticeable. No different textual content focuses so tightly and covers so thoroughly one particular, pernicious challenge on the middle of dynamics.
