Dynamica is a computer package, written in Mathematica, intended for use in the study of difference equations and discrete dynamical systems.

Difference equations arise in virtually all areas of science, mathematics and engineering. Difference equations are discrete analogs of differential equations.

Dynamica implements a series of tools and techniques of algebraic, numerical, and graphical nature used in the study of difference equations. These include:

Dynamica is easy to learn and use. In very little time the new user may be ready to study complex difference equations of which not much (maybe almost nothing!) is known.

The main reference and manual for Dynamica is the book Discrete Dynamical Systems and Difference Equations with Mathematica, by M.R.S. Kulenovic and O. Merino, Chapman&Hall/CRC Press, 2002,
