Bifurcation and Chaos in Coupled Oscillators

This book develops a general methodological approach to investigate complex physical systems presented by the author in a previous book. The nonlinear dynamics of coupled oscillators is investigated numerically and analytically. Three different mechanical, and one biomechanical, examples are used to demonstrate a general systematical approach to the study of dissipative dynamical systems. Many original examples of special chaotic behavior are discussed and illustrated.
