This book provides a self-contained comprehensive exposition of the theory of dynamical systems. The book begins with a discussion of several elementary but crucial examples. These are used to formulate a program for the general study of asymptotic properties and to introduce the principal theoretical concepts and methods. The main theme of the second part of the book is the interplay between local analysis near individual orbits and the global complexity of the orbit structure. The third and fourth parts develop the theories of low-dimensional dynamical systems and hyperbolic dynamical systems in depth. The book is aimed at students and researchers in mathematics at all levels from advanced undergraduate and up.

Editorial Reviews

"The notes section at the end of the book is complete and quite helpful. There are hints and answers provided for a good percentage of the problems in the book. The problems range from fairly straightforward ones to results that I remember reading in research papers over the last 10-20 years....I recommend the text as an exceptional reference..."
