About the Author

Richard Kautz is an engineer and physicist who holds a doctorate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. During his career at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, he helped develop fundamental quantum standards for both voltage and capacitance. Kautz is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and a recipient of the Samuel Stratton Award for measurement science and the Edward Condon Award for scientific writing.


Kautz's [Chaos] functions at the level of Ruelle's [Chance and Chaos] but is more focused and compete. It brings a thorough and fresh approach to the task. The writing is lucid and very engaging ... and the illustrations are uniformly excellent. * James Blackburn, American Journal of Physics *
The book is a famous introduction into the wide field of chaos and provides a very good basis for further studies. It is very useful for many persons: students in engineering, natural sciences, and mathematics or people interested in a better understanding of the nature of chaos. It is highly recommended. * ZAMM - Journal of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics *
