H.G.Schuster – Deterministic Chaos
A new edition of this well-established monograph, this volume provides a comprehensive overview over the still fascinating field of chaos research. The authors include recent developments such as systems with restricted degrees of freedom but put also a strong emphasis on the mathematical foundations. Partly illustrated in color, this fourth edition features new sections from applied nonlinear science, like control of chaos, synchronisation of nonlinear systems, and turbulence, as well as recent theoretical concepts like strange nonchaotic attractors, on-off intermittency and spatio-temporal chaotic motion.
“This text sets a standard which other authors and publishers in physics should strive to meet.” (Physics Bulletin)
“This is the revised and updated 3rd edition of this highly regarded textbook. A new chapter on controlling chaos has been added. Translations into Japanese, Chinese, German, Russian and Polish demonstrate the international interest in this book.”
From reviews of former editions:
“In this book, Schuster gives a very useful summary of the main ideas of the subject as it now stands. Although a physist by training and style, he organizes his treatment by the logic of the mathematics, which is based on the concept of a dynamical system.”
“Students about to begin research into chaos, and practising scientists new to the subject, will find this book well worth reading.” (Nature)
FROM THE BACK COVER
The new edition of this well-established monograph provides a comprehensive overview over the still fascinating and challenging field of chaos research. The authors present recent developments such as synchronisation and systems with many degrees of freedom but put also a strong emphasis on the comprehensible presentation of mathematical foundations. Illustrated in color, this fourth edition features sections on chaos control, unstable periodic orbits, the synchronization of chaotic systems, and spatiotemporal chaos. Students about to begin research as well as practising scientists will find this book well worth reading.

Bond trading definition
Bond trading is one way of making profit from fluctuations in the value of corporate or government bonds.
Many view it as an essential part of a diversified trading portfolio, alongside stocks and cash.
A bond is a financial instrument that works by allowing individuals to loan cash to institutions such as governments or companies.
The institution will pay a defined interest rate on the investment for the duration of the bond, and then give the original sum back at the end of the loan’s term.
A stock trader or equity trader or share trader is a person or company involved in trading equity securities.
Stock traders may be an agent, hedger, arbitrageur, speculator, stockbroker.
Such equity trading in large publicly traded companies may be through a stock exchange.
Stock shares in smaller public companies may be bought and sold in over-the-counter (OTC) markets.
Stock traders can trade on their own account, called proprietary trading, or through an agent authorized to buy and sell on the owner’s behalf.
Trading through an agent is usually through a stockbroker. Agents are paid a commission for performing the trade.
Major stock exchanges have market makers who help limit price variation (volatility) by buying and selling a particular company’s shares on their own behalf and also on behalf of other clients.
