If we try to describe real world in mathematical terms, we will see that real life is very often a high-dimensional chaos. Sometimes, by 'pushing hard', we manage to make order out of it; yet sometimes, we need simply to accept our life as it is. To be able to still live successfully, we need tounderstand, predict, and ultimately control this high-dimensional chaotic dynamics of life. This is the main theme of the present book. In our previous book, Geometrical - namics of Complex Systems, Vol. 31 in Springer book series Microprocessor- Based and Intelligent Systems Engineering, we developed the most powerful mathematical machinery to deal with high-dimensional nonlinear dynamics. In the present text, we consider the extreme cases of nonlinear dynamics, the high-dimensional chaotic and other attractor systems. Although they might look as examples of complete disorder - they still represent control systems, with their inputs, outputs, states, feedbacks, and stability. Today, we can see a number of nice books devoted to nonlinear dyn- ics and chaos theory (see our reference list). However, all these books are only undergraduate, introductory texts, that are concerned exclusively with oversimpli?ed low-dimensional chaos, thus providing only an inspiration for the readers to actually throw themselves into the real-life chaotic dynamics.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This is an ambitious book that . is devoted to the understanding, prediction and control of high-dimensional chaotic and attractor systems in real life. . Finally, and most usefully, the book has a substantial list of references (over 30 pages of them), meaning that the book can be used as a guide to literature in a diverse range of topics related to high- (and indeed low-) dimensional chaotic and nonlinear systems."
