    Poincaré and the Three Body Problem (Softcover)


    "The idea of chaos figures prominently in mathematics today. It arose in the work of one of the greatest mathematicians of the late 19th century, Henri Poincaré, on a problem in celestial mechanics: the three body problem. This ancient problem—to describe the paths of three bodies in mutual gravitational interaction—is one which is simple to pose buy impossible to solve precisely." — From the back cover
