Methods of qualitative theory in nonlinear dynamics. Part 2 / Leonid P. Shilnikov [and others].

Bifurcation and chaos has dominated research in nonlinear dynamics for over two decades, and numerous introductory and advanced books have been published on this subject. There remains, however, a dire need for a textbook which provides a pedagogically appealing yet rigorous mathematical bridge betw...
