One of the bestselling books on Chaos/Fractals examines chaos theory in a much more practical way than other books. Chaos is not just a way of generating computer graphics, or a mathematical curiosity. It has relevance to the real world and the easiest way to explore and visualize chaos is on the computer screen.

Computerized combat models are known occasionally to exhibit non-monotonic behavior in the sense that adding capabilities to one of the combatants degrades rather than improves the battle outcome for that side. Using a simple combat model, this report shows that for an important class of (nonlinear) combat phenomena--reinforcement decisions based on the state of the battle--such non-monotonicities can be widespread and are related to mathematically chaotic behavior caused by the nonlinearities. Unlike other common sources of non-monotonicity, the latter makes ameliorating the non-monotonicities difficult. This report also demonstrates that larger, more complex models are not immune to these effects. The emerging understanding of these effects has serious implications for the verification of models that are to be used for comparative purposes.

Katya Walter, Ph.D. examines the new nonlinear science of Chaos theory and finds there a broad new highway to God. At the deepest level of mathematical structure, there is a union of new physics (Chaos theory), new biology (the genetic code map), and the ancient wisdom of I Ching.Like I Ching, Chaos and the genetic code are both yin and yang -- interplay of opposites.

Most genetics textbooks deal adequately with plant and animal genetics, but tend to neglect fungi except for two areas. Firstly, the ascus segregations which, in the 1960s, contributed so much to developing an understanding of the mechanism of recombination and secondly, the contribution that work on yeast (as a model eukaryote) is currently making to understanding cell cycle control and its genetic regulation. Consequently, most introductory genetics texts will leave the reader/student with the impression that fungi are of use when peculiarities of their structure or life style suit them to particular experimental approaches, but are not worth mentioning otherwise. The authors have produced a book that will compensate for this imbalance. This book discusses the genetics of fungi, or mycology, in a way that is attractive and challenging, succinct yet comprehensive, sensitive to commercial and applied aspects, yet also theoretical, dealing with their genetics from molecules to individuals to population. This short text will be an ideal supplement to the established basic textbooks in genetics or can be used as the sole text for an advanced course devoted to fungal genetics.

Attractors, Bifurcations, & Chaos - now in its second edition - begins with an introduction to mathematical methods in modern nonlinear dynamics and deals with differential equations. Phenomena such as bifurcations and deterministic chaos are given considerable emphasis, both in the methodological part, and in the second part, containing various applications in economics and in regional science. Coexistence of attractors and the multiplicity of development paths in nonlinear systems are central topics. The applications focus on issues such as business cycles, oligopoly, interregional trade dynamics, and economic development theory.

God's shadow, or the dark Self, is connected to death, destruction and madness. Paradoxically, it is also indispensable to life. At a time when our highest values are turning against us, the psychological message of this book is a beacon of hope.
