Synopsis

The study of chaotic systems has become a major scientific pursuit in recent years, shedding light on the apparently random behaviour observed in fields as diverse as climatology and mechanics. In this work, one of the founding fathers of chaos, and the originator of its seminal concept of "the butterfly effect", presents his own landscape of our current understanding of the field. Lorenz presents everyday examples of chaotic behaviour (the toss of a coin, the pinball's path, the fall of a leaf) and explains, in elementary mathematical terms, how their essentially chaotic nature can be understood. His principal example involves the construction of a model of a board sliding down a ski slope. Through this model, Lorenz illustrates chaotic phenomena and the related concepts of bifurcation and strange attractors. He also provides the context in which chaos can be related to the similarly emergent fields of nonlinearity, complexity and fractals. As an early pioneer of the chaos theory, Lorenz also provides his own story of the human endeavour in developing this field.

He describes his own initial encounters with chaos through his study of climate, and introduces many of the personalities who contributed early breakthroughs. His seminal paper, "Does the flap of a butterfly's wing in Brazil set off a tornado in Texas?" is published. This study aims to provide an introductory understanding of chaos for non-specialists; and offers an historical and personal perspective to scientists already familiar with the basic concepts. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Buchrückseite

'For the personal glimpses of chaos theory development alone, this book is worth-while; for a clear, sharp development of the subject, the book is excellent; and for tying humanistic and scientific considerations together so well, there is a major debt owed to Lorenz.'--Geophysics

Edward Lorenz takes a complicated topic and makes it accessible for all people, regardless of prior knowledge of chaos theory. He provides interesting and easy to follow examples of chaos, fractals and complexity. The illustrations are helpful and he includes a glossary of terms to aid the beginning chaos enthusiasts to quickly become familiar with the terminology. Mr. Lorenz gives a brief history of chaos and explains how it is used in the study of mathematics, meteorology, economics, music, and other fields. The book is very interesting and is highly recommended for those who would like to acquaint themselves with the exciting world of chaos.

Lorenz has done it again. This is a terrific inside look at chaos by the man who made Gleick's book possible. And it had a few interesting new ideas too--who would have thought there was a different way to present fourth-order Runge-Kutta? Who would have thought Runge-Kutta could convert a phase-space circle to a nice-looking fractal attractor? A good book for the air plane.

HASH(0x9329027c) von 5 Sternen Excellent Chaos Primer 8. August 2000
Von Whitfield - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
My first intro to chaos was Gleick's book *Chaos: Making a New Science* which focused on the history of the discovery of chaos. Although this was fascinating - and a good read for those just learning about dynamical systems, strange attractors, and the like - Lorenz's *Essence of Chaos* was much more satisfying. Lorenz analyzes specific chaotic functions, gives you the math (equations are in the appendix) and generally accomplishes what the title suggests - that is, exploring the essence of chaos. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in this deeply fascinating subject.

HASH(0x930c6768) von 5 Sternen Essence of chaos book by E.Lorenz 14. Oktober 2007

Lorenz did a great job when he wrote this book!
The very first time when I heard of chaos theory was year ago while watching some old documentary about Nostadamus. In film was mentioned chaos theory and said that acceptance of it by many people could change whole look to life and so on. Movie left to me questions - what is that theory, what it's standing for.
Finaly my interest lead me to this book and it clearly showed me what kind of staff is that chaos theory! That was and is really intriguing!
Book is well written. There was of course some places that wasn't easy to understand. I myself have studied high math,encountered differential equations but anyway had some difficulties. That's why not 5 stars to book - it's really not for absolutely everyone although almost close to it. I couldn't stop it reading, I was done in two days.
This book encouraged me for further reading.

HASH(0x930d1630) von 5 Sternen This is the book if you're looking for a chaos primer 2. Februar 2009
Von Sturmey Archer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
If your interest in Chaos was piqued by Gleick's book on the subject, you may have found it unsatisfying. While it conveyed a enthusiasm for chaos, it only superficially answered questions about what characterizes a chaotic system. "The Essence of Chaos" is a much better book for gaining an understanding of chaos, mainly because it includes a discussion of the mathematics. Both authors strive to avoid mathematics as much as possible, but in the end, I believe Lorenz achieves a better balance. He only touches lightly on the math, but without that, it's impossible to understand what makes a system chaotic. He doesn't quite go so far as to show a practical application of chaos theory, but a clear and concise example of that probably doesn't exist yet. But, he does achieve the goal of demonstrating and examining the fascinating characteristics of a chaotic system.

HASH(0x930d15ac) von 5 Sternen Not for the Lay Person 19. September 2008
Von L. Leeder - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Having read several books about Chaos Theory, and having been promised a user-friendly and yet academic book on the subject, this book fell a little short. Certainly academic, not so easy for someone who does not have a solid background in the sciences and mathematics fields. The various sections cover much of the recent research, and if you can get past the equations, you get a more complete sense of the progression in the subject.
