Product description

From Booklist

For physicists, chaos is not just a common synonym for disorder. Elaborating on the difference, veteran author Gribbin conducts a historical excursion through chaos theory; his destination is the insights into the emergence of life that chaos theory supplies. Gribbin starts with the subject's mathematical roots in Newtonian physics, which was bedeviled by the three-body problem, so called for the difficulty of calculating three or more objects in motion. Without solving it, scientists could not prove that the solar system, for example, was stable. Gribbin explains how the great mathematician Henri Poincare proved that stable orbits could arise from a chaotic system, and he parallels Poincare's achievement with Ludwig Boltzmann's work on entropy. By the 1950s, finding self-organizing principles concealed in the blur of chaotic behavior lured the attention of many scientists, among them, Alan Turing, Benoit Mandelbrot, and Stuart Kauffman. Gribbin informs readers of their basic discoveries and the underlying mathematics, culminating with the relevance of chaos theory to biology. Gribbin gives a characteristically clear presentation of a challenging science. Gilbert Taylor

“Gribbin takes us through the basics [of chaos theory] with his customary talent for accessibility and clarity. [His] arguments are driven not by impersonal equations but by a sense of wonder at the presence in the universe and in nature of simple, self-organizing harmonies underpinning all structures, whether they are stars or flowers.”
–Sunday Times (London)

“Gribbins breathes life into the core ideas of complexity science, and argues convincingly that the basic laws, even in biology, will ultimately turn out to be simple.”
–Nature magazine
