Chaos : Making a New Science, Paperback

Chaos : Making a New Science Paperback



Chaos brings together work in the field of chaos theory, an extension of classical mechanics, in which simple and complex causes are seen to interact.

Mathematics may only be able to solve simple linear equations which experiment has pushed nature into obeying in a limited way, but now that computers can map the whole plane of solutions of non-linear equations a new vision of nature is revealed.

The implications are staggeringly universal in all areas of scientific work and philosophical thought.
