  • Perspectives and Challenges in Statistical Physics and Complex Systems for the Next Decadeby Gandhimohan M. Viswanathan; Ernesto P. Raposo

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 153.00

    Statistical Physics (SP) has followed an unusual evolutionary path in science. Originally aiming to provide a fundamental basis for another important branch of Physics, namely Thermodynamics, SP gradually became an independent field of research in its own right. But despite more than a century of steady progress, there are still plenty of challenges... more...

  • Borrowed Knowledgeby Stephen H. Kellert

    University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 32.00

    What happens to scientific knowledge when researchers outside the natural sciences bring elements of the latest trend across disciplinary boundaries for their own purposes? Researchers in fields from anthropology to family therapy and traffic planning employ the concepts, methods, and results of chaos theory to harness the disciplinary prestige of... more...

  • Ubiquityby Mark Buchanan

    Crown Publishing Group 2002; US$ 16.00

    Why do catastrophes happen? What sets off earthquakes, for example? What about mass extinctions of species? The outbreak of major wars? Massive traffic jams that seem to appear out of nowhere? Why does the stock market periodically suffer dramatic crashes? Why do some forest fires become superheated infernos that rage totally out of control? Experts... more...

  • The Dynamical Systems Approach To Cognitionby Wolfgang Tschacher; Jean-Pierre Dauwalder

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 194.00

    The shared platform of the articles collected in this volume is used to advocate a dynamical systems approach to cognition. It is argued that recent developments in cognitive science towards an account of embodiment, together with the general approach of complexity theory and dynamics, have a major impact on behavioral and cognitive science. more...

  • Dynamics And Bifurcation Of Patterns In Dissipative Systemsby Gerhard Dangelmayr; Iuliana Oprea

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 175.00

    Understanding the spontaneous formation and dynamics of spatiotemporal patterns in dissipative nonequilibrium systems is one of the major challenges in nonlinear science. This collection of expository papers and advanced research articles, written by leading experts, provides an overview of the state of the art. The topics include new approaches to... more...

  • Worldviews, Science And Usby Carlos Gershenson; Diederik Aerts; Bruce Edmonds

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 234.00

    Scientific, technological, and cultural changes have always had an impact upon philosophy. They can force a change in the way we perceive the world, reveal new kinds of phenomena to be understood, and provide new ways of understanding phenomena. Complexity science, immersed in a culture of information, is having a diverse but particularly significant... more...

  • The Drunkard's Walkby Leonard Mlodinow

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2008; US$ 15.95

    With the born storyteller's command of narrative and imaginative approach, Leonard Mlodinow vividly demonstrates how our lives are profoundly informed by chance and randomness and how everything from wine ratings and corporate success to school grades and political polls are less reliable than we believe. By showing us the true nature of chance... more...

  • Control of Chaos in Nonlinear Circuits and Systemsby Bingo Wing-Kuen Ling

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 163.00

    In this book, leading researchers present their current work in the challenging area of chaos control in nonlinear circuits and systems, with emphasis on practical methodologies, system design techniques and applications. A combination of overview, tutorial and technical articles, the book describes state-of-the-art research on significant problems... more...

  • The Topology of Chaosby Robert Gilmore; Marc Lefranc

    Wiley 2008; US$ 185.00

    A new approach to understanding nonlinear dynamics and strange attractors The behavior of a physical system may appear irregular or chaotic even when it is completely deterministic and predictable for short periods of time into the future. How does one model the dynamics of a system operating in a chaotic regime? Older tools such as estimates of the... more...

  • Quantum Chaosby Giulio Casati; Boris Chirikov

    Cambridge University Press 1995; US$ 110.00

    This book provides a comprehensive overview of our understanding of chaotic behaviour in quantum systems. more...
