About the book
This book through the first chapter provides an introduction to the Theory of Dynamical Systems, which should facilitate understanding of the subsequent chapters. The true interdisciplinary nature of the text will acquaint the reader not only with the latest material in a particular area; it will also make him/her aware what is going on in other disciplines in the related area. Each chapter provides an elaborate list of references, which can be consulted, for the details. Courses at an advanced level in various disciplines can be offered using parts of this text as the basic material when suitably supplemented by the instructor's choice.
