Reviews - What do customers think about Time Reversibility, Computer Simulation, and Chaos (Nonlinear Dynamics)?
The experts all agree on this one! Nov 15, 2000
On the advice of both Al Gore and George Bush I had a look at this book. Not only is it easy to carry and pleasant to read, it facilitates forgetting those tiresome Florida recounts. I recommend this as the Great Escape read of the 21st century.
Another great book from the Hoovers. Mar 8, 2000
Bill and Carol suggested I have a look, and it was worthwhile. Mostly true. Unfortunately the nice picture of me which appeared in Computational Statistical Mechanics (same author) was inadvertently omitted from the book
A good book about reversibility, computing, and chaos Feb 26, 2000
On my wife's advice I picked up and studied this book. I find that the clarity and organization are unparalleled, truly a find among the many available books on chaos and computing. Buy it!
A terrific read Feb 16, 2000
This book, written by my husband, Bill Hoover, is tops on style and content. I recommend it without reservation.
