I did, however, read the edition. View all 8 comments. Loss of stability and emergence of chaos in dynamical systems. Gleick’s examination of the emergence of chaos theory is well written, and relatively easy to read relative when one compares it to the technical and academic articles on the subject upon which he draws.

The book succeeded for me cindia outlining how a new science has come into being–and has done so very recently. Overall, I did enjoy the book and will probably watch for more by this author.

Gleick showed to me how science could be created from frustration and disorder.

In ChaosJames Gleick, a former science writer for the New York Timesshows that he resides in this exclusive category. A lot of the science and math in this book was way over my head, but he does a pretty good job of explaining really complicated ideas in simplified terms.

No equations and lots of graphs, but that’s just to make sure the general public isn’t scared away. Experimenters have to use their hands, too. D Journal ot Agricultural Economics, Ames, v.

Long Range Planning, Oxford, v. Pero es inevitable por otra parte no maravillarse cuando se observa por primera al hombre de Mandelbrot.

After Lorenz, dozens of other scientists based their experiments off of his work and studied turbulence, dimensions, liquids, even life itself. It wasn’t an easy read, and many of the concepts in the book are still a puzzle to me, but I enjoyed it. Technical Communication, Arlington, v.

It’s difficult to summarize this book, but some remarkable and thought-provoking statements to take away: Forbes, New Vork, v.
