not yet rated|write a review
This valuable account of chemical chaos, now available in paperback, reviews both theory and experiment, emphasizing the simple features that combine to produce `order within disorder'. The author begins by revealing the links between chemical kinetics and the interdisciplinary subject ofdynamical systems. Various bifurcation sequences are then introduced through representative model schemes, with the emphasis on generality and simplicity. Chaos arises in both conventional chemical reactions and forced or couples systems, and both are considered here. Various experimental anddiagnostic techniques to test for chaos are then described, and the remaining chapters review experimental studies in a wide range of chemical and biochemical systems.
