By J. R. Dorfman

This ebook is an creation to the functions in nonequilibrium statistical mechanics of chaotic dynamics, and in addition to using ideas in statistical mechanics very important for an knowing of the chaotic behaviour of fluid structures. the elemental techniques of dynamical structures idea are reviewed and straightforward examples are given. complex issues together with SRB and Gibbs measures, risky periodic orbit expansions, and functions to billiard-ball structures, are then defined. The textual content emphasises the connections among shipping coefficients, had to describe macroscopic homes of fluid flows, and amounts, resembling Lyapunov exponents and Kolmogorov-Sinai entropies, which describe the microscopic, chaotic behaviour of the fluid. Later chapters think of the jobs of the increasing and contracting manifolds of hyperbolic dynamical structures and the big variety of debris in macroscopic structures. workouts, special references and proposals for additional interpreting are integrated.
