  • Chaos: A Very Short Introductionby Leonard Smith

    OUP Oxford 2007; US$ 7.99

    Chaos exists in systems all around us. Even the simplest system can be subject to chaos, denying us accurate predictions of its behaviour, and sometimes giving rise to astonishing structures of large-scale order. This Very Short Introduction draws in philosophy, literature, and accessible maths to explain and illuminate Chaos Theory, showing the... more...
