The Topology of Chaos is a highly valued resource for those who wish to move from an introductory knowledge of chaotic behavior to a more sophisticated and precise understanding of chaotic systems and measurements made on them. The authors provide deep insight into the structure of strange attractors, how they are classified, and how the information required to characterize a strange attractor can be extracted from experimental data. What makes this book special is the abundance of practical examples where time series from real physical systems (e.g. lasers) are analyzed using topological techniques. Hence it has become the experimenter’s guidebook to reliable studies of experimental data for comparison with candidate theoretical models, invaluable to physicists, mathematicians, and engineers studying low-dimensional chaotic systems.
This second edition incorporates recent advances in the field, such as the concept of bounding tori.
