World of Motion

  • Richard H. Enns
Part of the Springer Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics and Technology book series (SUMAT)


In the following two chapters, we will sample some of the nonlinear dynamical phenomena in the world of motion, a world where it is possible to verify and apply the nonlinear mathematical concepts that have been introduced. This chapter deals with more traditional nonlinear topics from the realm of physics and engineering, while examples from the world of sports are the theme of the following chapter.
