Part of the Institute for Nonlinear Science book series (INLS)


Several comments concerning chaos from the viewpoint of theory of stability are made. Special attention is paid to dependence of orbital instability (leading to chaos) upon frames of reference, metrics of configuration space, and class of functions selected for mathematical models of physical phenomena. New representation of chaos is discussed.
