Chaotic Behavior in Systems

  • Nonlinear Dynamics of Interacting Populationsby A.D. Bazykin

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1998; US$ 172.00

    This book contains a systematic study of ecological communities of two or three interacting populations. Starting from the Lotka–Volterra system, various regulating factors are considered, such as rates of birth and death, predation and competition. The different factors can have a stabilizing or a destabilizing effect on the community, and... more...

  • Impact & Friction of Solids, Structures & Machinesby Ardeshir Guran

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2000; US$ 190.00

    This book deals with the dynamics of mechanical systems in presence of impact and friction. The contributors are an international group of engineers and scientists from industrial and academic institutions of more than 23 countries around the world concerned with the modeling, analysis, measurement and control of nonsmooth mechanical structures. Contact... more...

  • Nonlinear Physicsby Mark J. Ablowitz; M. Boiti; F. Pempinelli; B. Prinari

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 394.00

    The theory of solitons involves a broad variety of mathematical methods and appears in many areas of physics, technology, biology, and pure and applied mathematics. In this book, emphasis is placed on both theory (considering mathematical approaches for classical and quantum nonlinear systems — both continuous and discrete) and experiment (with... more...

  • Applied Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos of Mechanical Systems with Discontinuitiesby Marian Wiercigroch; Bram De Kraker

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2000; US$ 229.00

    Rapid developments in nonlinear dynamics and chaos theory have led to publication of many valuable monographs and books. However, most of these texts are devoted to the classical nonlinear dynamics systems, for example the Duffing or van der Pol oscillators, and either neglect or refer only briefly to systems with motion-dependent discontinuities.... more...

  • Applied Symbolic Dynamics and Chaosby Bai-Lin Hao; Wei-Mou Zheng

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1998; US$ 178.00

    Symbolic dynamics is a coarse-grained description of dynamics. It provides a rigorous way to understand the global systematics of periodic and chaotic motion in a system. In the last decade it has been applied to nonlinear systems described by one- and two-dimensional maps as well as by ordinary differential equations. This book will help practitioners... more...

  • Localization and Solitary Waves in Solid Mechanicsby A.R. Champneys; G.T. Hunt

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1999; US$ 127.00

    This book is a collection of recent reprints and new material on fundamentally nonlinear problems in structural systems which demonstrate localized responses to continuous inputs. It has two intended audiences. For mathematicians and physicists it should provide useful new insights into a classical yet rapidly developing area of application of the... more...

  • Dynamical Modeling of the Onset of Warby Alvin M. Saperstein

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1999; US$ 87.00

    Physical science and technology (engineering) are fundamentally linked by the possibility of predictions: science tests itself and grows by making and checking predictions; technology relies on predictions and thus furthers the growth of the associated science. The political science of international relations is similarly associated with the “technology”... more...

  • The Thermomechanics of Nonlinear Irreversible Behavioursby Gerard A. Maugin

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1999; US$ 141.00

    In this invaluable book, macroscopic irreversible thermodynamics is presented in its realm and its splendor by appealing to the notion of internal variables of state. This applies to both fluids and solids with or without microstructures of mechanical or electromagnetic origin. This unmatched richness of essentially nonlinear behaviors is the result... more...

  • Nonlinear Periodic Waves and Their Modulationsby A.M. Kamchatnov

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2000; US$ 160.00

    Although the mathematical theory of nonlinear waves and solitons has made great progress, its applications to concrete physical problems are rather poor, especially when compared with the classical theory of linear dispersive waves and nonlinear fluid motion. The Whitham method, which describes the combining action of the dispersive and nonlinear effects... more...

  • Dynamical Systemsby Jean-Marc Gambaudo; P. Hubert; P. Tisseur; S. Vaienti

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2000; US$ 193.00

    This book focuses on the interactions between discrete and geometric dynamical systems, and between dynamical systems and theoretical physics and computer science. Accordingly, the contributions revolve around two main topics: (1) interaction between geometric and symbolic systems, with emphasis on tiling problems for quasicrystals, substitutions and... more...
