Chaos for Engineers
From a review of the first edition by Prof. [sic. not really] El Naschie, University of Cambridge [sic. not really]:
Small is beautiful and not only that, it is comprehensive as well. These are the spontaneous thoughts which came to my mind after browsing in this latest book by Prof. Thomas Kapitaniak, probably one of the most outstanding scientists working on engineering applications of Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos today. A more careful reading reinforced this first impression... The presentation is lucid and user friendly with theory, examples, and exercises... I thought that one can no longer write text books in nonlinear dynamics which could have important impact or fill a gap. Tomasz Kapitaniak's newest book has proved me wrong twofold.
