Lecture Notes on Nonlinear Dynamics Daniel Arovas

Dynamics
is the study of motion through phase space. The phase space of a given
dynamical system is described as an N-dimensional manifold, M. The topics
covered in this pdf are: Reference Materials, Dynamical Systems,
Bifurcations, Two-Dimensional Phase Flows, Nonlinear Oscillators,
Hamiltonian Mechanics, Maps, Strange Attractors, and Chaos, Ergodicity and
the Approach to Equilibrium, Front Propagation, Pattern Formation, Solitons,
Shock Waves.
