Science and the mathematics of black boxes.- The mathematics of change.- Equilibria and steady states.- Stability.- Fixed-points: Creation and destruction.- Transient dynamics.- Frequency domain I: Bode plots and transfer functions.- Frequency domain II: Fourier analysis and power spectra.- Feedback and control systems.- Oscillations.- Beyond limit cycles.- Random perturbations.- Noisy dynamical systems.- Random walkers.- Thermodynamic perspectives.
This introductory textbook is based on the premise that the foundation of good science is good data. The educational challenge addressed by this introductory textbook is how to present a sampling of the wide range of mathematical tools available for laboratory research to well-motivated students with a mathematical background limited to an introductory course in calculus.
Uses real data
Uses mathematical methods that are used in the laboratory
Real laboratory exercises provided as supplementary material
