An Introduction to Dynamical Systems and Chaos
by Marc Spiegelman
Publisher: LDEO 1997
Number of pages: 67
This tutorial will develop the basic ingredients necessary for modeling and understanding simple (and not so simple) non-linear dynamical systems. The goal of these exercises are to demonstrate you that you can develop significant insight into the behavior of complicated non-linear systems with just a little math, a little art and a little modeling software.

We review some basic notions in ergodic theory and thermodynamic formalism, as well as introductory results in the context of max-plus algebra, in order to exhibit some properties of equilibrium measures when temperature goes to zero.

This book provides an introduction to ordinary differential equations and dynamical systems. We start with some simple examples of explicitly solvable equations. Then we prove the fundamental results concerning the initial value problem.

Informal lecture notes intended for graduate students about the standard local theory of holomorphic foliations and vector fields. Though the material presented here is well-known some of the proofs differ slightly from the classical arguments.
