Item description for Handbook of Chaos Control by Eckehard Schöll...
This long-awaited revised second edition of the standard reference on the subject has been considerably expanded to include such recent developments as novel control schemes, control of chaotic space-time patterns, control of noisy nonlinear systems, and communication with chaos, as well as promising new directions in research. The contributions from leading international scientists active in the field provide a comprehensive overview of our current level of knowledge on chaos control and its applications in physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, and engineering. In addition, they show the overlap with the traditional field of control theory in the engineering community. An interdisciplinary approach of interest to scientists and engineers working in a number of areas.

Controlling a Chaotic System Jan 11, 2004
A few years ago, researchers studying chaos came to a realisation that it might be possible to apply some elements of control systems onto it, taking advantage of the intrinsic chaotic nature to minimise the amount of energy input needed.
In essence, researchers were trying to take the paradigm of a butterfly flapping its wings and affecting a cyclone an ocean away, and use it. The book seems to have a well chosen summary of such research intents, applied across various fields. Progress has been good; though currently no headline grabbers.
While it does provide a quick introduction to chaos theory at the start of the book, you might need prior acquaintance. It is not the aim of the book to teach you chaos theory but to apply it.
