Devaney, Robert L.
Chaos, fractals, & dynamics are important & exciting topics in contemporary mathematics. This set of two video cassettes & a book introduces these topics using a combination of hands-on computer experimentation & precalculus mathematics. Students are led through a series of experiments that produce fascinating computer graphics of Julia sets, the Mandelbrot set, & fractals. The basic ideas of dynamics - chaos, iteration, stability, orbits & orbit diagrams - are illustrated via computer projects. Numerous full color still pictures & animations convey the beauty of these mathematical ideas. This package is appropriate for high school students, college students & mathematics teachers, as well as others who wish to experience & experiment with contemporary mathematics. The tapes can each stand alone as suitable programs for seminars or clubs interested in these topics. They make use of sophisticated television production techniques & appeal to scientists in many fields as well as interested laymen. "This video, CHAOS, FRACTALS & DYNAMICS, is a "must" for anyone interested in mathematics."--Dr. Keith Devlin, THE GUARDIAN.Devaney, Robert L. is the author of 'Chaos, Fractals and Dynamics: Computer Experiments in Mathematics - Robert L. Devaney - Paperback - BK&2 VIDEO' with ISBN 9781878310095 and ISBN 1878310097.
