Please suggest some good chaos theory as general read, which can be enjoyed while on beach has patterns. I am a electrical Eng Post Graduate in communication theory and signal processing so can understand complex math.

Gleick's Chaos: Making a New Science is a beautiful book that can be read without pencil and paper.

Divulgative:

Does God Play Dice? The New Mathematics of Chaos by Ian Stewart.

A bit more advanced:

Explaining Chaos by Peter Smith.

College level:

Nonlinear Differential Equations and Dynamical Systems by Ferdinand Verhulst.

Here are my suggestions:

  • Stephen Strogatz Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos
  • Online SOOC chaosbook.org
  • Edward Ott Chaos in Dynamical Systems

If you know nothing about nonlinear dynamics, then Strogatz is the best place to start. If you want to jump straight into chaos, then go with Edward Ott's book. I recently discovered the online SOOC--just started, but it seems very promising!

My recommendations are:

Ivar Ekeland: The broken dice, and other mathematical tales of chance

Vladimir Arnold: Catastrophe Theory.
