From Order To Chaos Il
Essays: Critical, Chaotic And Otherwise
This expanded edition is divided into five sections. The first section contains review papers on hydrodynamics, condensed matter physics and field theory. Next is a selection of papers on scaling and universality, particularly as applied to phase changes. A change of pace is provided by a series of papers on the critical analysis of simulation models of urban economic and social development. The book concludes with a series of recent papers on complex patterns. Each major section has an introduction designed to tie the work together and to provide perspective on the subject matter.
Contents: Fundamental Issues in Hydrodynamics, Condensed Matter and Field Theory; Scaling and Phase Transitions; Simulations, Urban Studies, and Social Systems; Turbulence and Chaos; Complex Patterns.
Readership: Condensed matter physicists, applied mathematicians and computer scientists.
