This text is designed for those who wish to study mathematics beyond linear algebra but are unready for abstract material. Rather than a theorem-proof-corollary exposition, it stresses geometry, intuition, and dynamical systems. 1996 edition.
A pioneer in the field of dynamical systems discusses one-dimensional dynamics, differential equations, random walks, iterated function systems, symbolic dynamics, and Markov chains. Supplementary materials include PowerPoint slides and MATLAB exercises. 2010 edition.

No algorithm, no "consensus statement," and no "standard of care" will help you now! You need intuitive type thinking, not analytical thinking. This book explores how to get it. Surgical Intuition offers a guided tour to becoming an expert, intuitive thinker. It is intended not only for general surgeons, but for family practitioners, primary care internists, and doctors of all specialties, as well as psychologists and cognitive scientists, because it shows that the possibilities and complexities of expert intuition are relevant to all fields of endeavor. The book sketches a full cognitive psychology theory of the thinking involved in expert surgery, and thus provides a description and an explanation of surgical intuition.
