  • Chaos: Making a New Science

    Making a New Science

    by James Gleick

    The blockbuster modern science classic that introduced the butterfly effect to the world—even more relevant two decades after it became an international sensationFor centuries, scientific thought was focused on bringing order to the natural world. But even as relativity and quantum mechanics undermined that rigid certainty in the first half of the twentieth century, the scientific community clung ... Read more

  • The Physics of Wall Street

    a brief history of predicting the unpredictable

    by James Owen Weatherall

    After the economic meltdown of 2008, Warren Buffett famously warned, ‘Beware of geeks bearing formulas.’ But as James Weatherall demonstrates, not all geeks are created equal. Taking us from fin-de-siècle Paris to Rat Pack–era Las Vegas, from wartime government labs to Yippie communes on the Pacific coast, Weatherall shows how a special breed of physicists successfully brought their science to ...

  • Chaos: A Very Short Introduction

    by Leonard Smith

    series Very Short Introductions
    Chaos exists in systems all around us. Even the simplest system of cause and effect can be subject to chaos, denying us accurate predictions of its behaviour, and sometimes giving rise to astonishing structures of large-scale order. Our growing understanding of Chaos Theory is having fascinating applications in the real world - from technology to global warming, politics, human behaviour, and even ... Read more

  • In Defense of Chaos

    The Chaology of Politics, Economics and Human Action

    by L.K. Samuels

    Chaos gets a bad rap. Few people realize that without the dynamics of chaos, order would not exist. In fact, nothing would exist. Without chaos there would be no creation, no structure and no existence. After all, order is merely the repetition of patterns; chaos is the process that establishes those patterns. LK Samuels, goes beyond the normal boundaries studied by chaologists. It views science ... Read more
