Overview: Chaos

Science writer Gleick makes an adventurous attempt at describing the revolutionary chaos theory in a clear and engaging style. The book Chaos: Making a New Science is not a purely technical book. It is also a trip through the minds of extraordinary or eccentric people who studied chaos. You go through Edward Lorenz's discovery of the Butterfly Effect, Mitchell Feigenbaum's calculation of a universal constant and Benoit Mandelbrot's concept of fractals, which created a new geometry of nature.

The brilliance of the book lies in not trying to explain Julia sets, Lorenz attractors, and the Mandelbrot Set with confusing and complicated equations. Rather, the author relies on sketches, photographs, and his own descriptive prose. Once you read this book, you will never see the world in a new light.

James Gleick was a science writer at the New York Times. He has authored numerous books including Genius: Richard Feynman & Modern, Isaac Newton and Chaos. You can buy online all of his works. This paperback book is listed with the ISBN 10 number of 0143113453and ISBN 13 number of 9780143113454.
