Newton's Clock Summary


Newton's Clock: Chaos in the Solar System by Ivars Peterson

This book gives an excellent introduction to some of the issues and should be of interest to readers of all backgrounds." The Observatory "Here is a book for all who thought that there was nothing new in Newtonian mechanics." New Scientist
