Assuming no more than an undergraduate knowledge of chemistry, the authors take the reader through the necessary mathematical and theoretical background of oscillating reactions, chaos and chemical waves to advanced topics of current research interest in chemical systems, including applications biology and polymers.
"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
