Dynamical Systems: Maps (MAGIC060)
There are no announcements
This course is part of the MAGIC core.
The course provides an introduction to the topological dynamics of iterated maps: circle maps, unimodal maps, Smale's horseshoe, Hyperbolic toral automorphisms, and polynomials C → C. There is an emphasis on symbolic techniques (kneading theory, Markov partitions, etc.) The aim is to provide an introduction to a broad range of topics, rather than to discuss any of the topics in great depth.

Undergraduate-level courses in metric spaces and complex analysis.
Clicking on the link for a book will take you to the relevant Google Book Search page. You may be able to preview the book there. On the right hand side you will see links to places where you can buy the book. There is also link marked 'Find this book in a library'. This sometimes works well, but not always. (You will need to enter your location, but it will be saved after you do that for the first time.)
