Books on Chaos theory for an engineering graduate?

  1. Feb 24, 2012 #1
    I'll be self-studying about chaos theory. I am looking for a comprehensive book on chaos theory which also touches upon the mathematical aspects involved in it from scratch .I'm no math graduate.. I hold an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering.So, my knowledge in math is limited to engineering mathematics. I find certain mathematical concepts involved in chaos theory very alien.. recurrence plots :S poincare maps :S What would you suggest I do? If there is a mathematics book that I should look into before starting with chaos theory, do suggest.

    Thanks in advance. :)
