Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos This book gives a great overview of dynamical modeling and phase space conceptualization. It is an entire book, but I can’t even decide on which chapters are best because it is so foundational. There is also an associated video series of class lectures by the author: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycJEoqmQvwg
