Excerpt from The American Mathematical Monthly, Vol. 21 Note BY the editors. - This article illustrates the reference in the editorial of this issue concerning papers of a somewhat more technical character in which, however, we have tried to have the technical terms explained for the benefit of the general reader. Professor Bussey has met this request most admirably. The study of tactical configurations known as triple systems had its origin in two related problems proposed independently by T. P. Kirkman1 and J. Steiner.2 Kirkman's problem is to arrange fifteen school girls in parties of three for seven consecutive days' walk so that every two of the girls walk together once and only once during the seven days. There is a good account of the history of the problem with several methods of solution in Ball's Mathematical Recreations and Essays, 5th edition, Chapter 9. An arrangement of a number of elements in sets of three so that every set of two is contained in one and only one set of three is called a triple system. The sets of three are called triples or triads. The problem of the fifteen school girls involves a triple system of 15 elements and 35 triads. The simplest triple system is the following well-known one of 7 elements and 7 triads. The digits 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 are the elements and the columns are the triads.

A dynamical system is a collection of possible states and a rule (or rules) that describes evolution of these states over time. The main purpose of this book is to introduce important concepts in dynamical systems - including fixed and periodic points, attractors and repellers, chaos and fractals - in a way that encourages readers to explore, discover , and learn independently. The book differs from other dynamical system textbooks in that topics have been carefully chosen both to give a coherent introduction to dynamical systems and to support inquiry-based learning.
