"Offers an introduction to nonlinear chemical dynamics written especially for chemists, covering oscillating reactions, chaos, and chemical pattern formation. Begins with a brief history of nonlinear chemical dynamics and a review of necessary mathematics and chemistry, then provides an overview of nonlinear dynamics, starting with the flow reactor and moving on to a detailed discussion of chemical oscillators. Later chapters cover advanced topics such as biological systems, polymers, and interactions between fields and waves. Includes a series of classroom-tested demonstrations and experiments appropriate for an undergraduate laboratory. Assumes an undergraduate knowledge of chemistry. Epstein is a professor of chemistry at Brandeis University. Pojman is a professor of chemistry and biochemistry at the University of Southern Mississippi."--SciTech Book News"Nonlinear chemical dynamics is a young, rapidly developing field . . . Irving Epstein and John Pojman's [book] is intended to provide an introduction to the field at the advanced undergraduate or introductory graduate level . . . The book, written in a pleasant, informal style, covers a wide range of topics, for which it provides both representative and illustrative examples and a good coverage of the literature. . . . [T]he book covers, for the first time, certain important topics that had been missing in the literature at this level, such as external fields, delays, polymer systems, and stirring effects. It also provides useful information on the operational aspects of chemical reactors. All in all, the book constitutes a source of information to which both students and teachers interested in nonlinear science in general and in nonlinear chemical dynamics in particular may advantageously turn to complete a more technically oriented training."--Physics Today"Intense study of oscillating chemical reactions and nonlinear dynamics in chemistry is only about 30 years old, but there has been enormoRezension:
'A beginner in any discipline could use it for research inspiration and as a starting point....The last chapter is a delightful treatment of the fascinating realm of mixing processes. Chemical recipes are given in the appendixes...It is for any chemist,physicist,biologist, or mathmatician, from the undergradute to the professor, who wishes to be introduced to this beautiful area' Chemical Intelligencer
