Probabilistic Properties of Deterministic Systems by Michael C. Mackey Probabilistic Properties of Deterministic Systems, Paperback (November 2008)

This book shows how densities arise in simple deterministic systems.

Chaos, Fractals and Noise by Michael C. Mackey Chaos, Fractals and Noise, Hardback (April 1998)

This book offers a unified treatment of a variety of mathematical systems generating densities, from one-dimensional discrete time transformations through continuous time systems described by integro-partial-differential equations. Includes numerous examples.

From Clocks to Chaos by Michael C. Mackey From Clocks to Chaos, Paperback (July 1988)

Probes central theoretical questions about physiological rhythms. Topics discussed include: how are rhythms generated? How do they start and stop? What are the effects of perturbation of the rhythms? How are oscillations organized in space? This book is useful for biological scientists, physicians, physical scientists, and mathematicians.
