Please contact centerboghandelen at Fredrik Bajersvej 7 for purchase.
There is a web page for the book with a list of misprints, which you may contribute to, if you find any.

Supplementary reading:

A comprehensive list of books, lecture notes (many of them online), software and computer applications can be found on this web site from Helsinki University. For an elementary introduction with many reminders on undergraduate mathematical terms, have a look at Ed Scheinerman's book Invitation to Dynamical Systems, the final one on the list of online textbooks on this web page; it can be downloaded for free for private use.

Lecture Plans:

Below you may find the course material; for the second week, we have so far displayed the material from the 2008 run of the course. It will be updated very soon.
