Many chaotic circuit models have been developed and studied up to date.
Autonomous and nonautonomous Chua’s circuits hold a special
importance in the studies of chaotic system modeling and chaos-based
science and engineering applications. Since a considerable number of
hardware and software-based design and implementation approaches can
be applied to Chua’s circuits, these circuits also constitute excellent
educative models that have pedagogical value in the study of nonlinear
dynamics and chaos.

Today people use computers to make phone calls, watch TV, send instant messages to
their friends, play games with other people, and buy most anything you can think of—from
songs to automobiles. The ability of programs to communicate over the Internet makes all
this possible. It’s hard to say how many individual computers are now reachable over the
Internet, but we can safely say that it is growing rapidly; it won’t be long before the number is
in the billions. Moreover, new applications are being developed every day.
You’ll start with the essentials of Backbone’s models, views, collections, and routers, and then dive into methods for building RESTful applications with modern technology stacks....
It is interesting to look at the major sources of waste from within the chemical
industry. Bulk chemical production is normally thought of as a ‘dirty’ industry and
historically this has been the case. As the industry became more competitive, more
economic processes needed to be developed and it became unacceptable (and non-
viable) to produce the same amount of waste as 30 years ago. Today it is the
speciality and pharmaceutical industries which produce most waste (at least...
