“The text is a strong and rigorous treatment of the introduction of dynamical systems … . The exercises presented at the end of each chapter are suitable for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students. As a reference source, the text is very well-organized with its division of the subject into continuous and discrete dynamical systems. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals and practitioners.” (M. D. Sanford, Choice, Vol. 54 (2), October, 2016)

This textbook provides a clear presentation of many standard topics in dynamical systems. Overall, the book is well written in a clear logical manner. The chapter titles precisely indicate the topics covered by the author. These are…..
