Chaotic Behavior in Systems

  • Introduction to Nonlinear Dynamics for Physicistsby H.D.I. Abarbanel; M. I. Rabinovich; M.M. Sushchik

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1993; US$ 29.00

    This series of lectures aims to address three main questions that anyone interested in the study of nonlinear dynamics should ask and ponder over. What is nonlinear dynamics and how does it differ from linear dynamics which permeates all familiar textbooks? Why should the physicist study nonlinear systems and leave the comfortable territory of linearity?... more...

  • Symmetry and Perturbation Theoryby Simonetta Abenda; Giuseppe Gaeta; Sebastian Walcher

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 154.00

    This is the fourth conference on “Supersymmetry and Perturbation Theory” (SPT 2002). The proceedings present original results and state-of-the-art reviews on topics related to symmetry, integrability and perturbation theory, etc. Contents: An Outline of the Geometrical Theory of the Separation of Variables in the Hamilton-Jacobi and Schrödinger... more...

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

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 242.00

    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...

  • The Chaos Avant-Gardeby Ralph Abraham; Yoshisuke Ueda

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 84.00

    This book is an authoritative and unique reference for the history of chaos theory, told by the pioneers themselves. It also provides an excellent historical introduction to the concepts. There are eleven contributions, and six of them are published here for the first time — two by Steve Smale, three by Yoshisuke Ueda, and one each by Ralph... more...

  • Atlas of Physarum Computingby Andrew Adamatzky

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2015; US$ 72.00

    The slime mould Physarum polycephalum is a large cell visible by the unaided eye. It behaves as an intelligent nonlinear spatially extended active medium encapsulated in an elastic membrane. The cell optimises its growth patterns in configurations of attractants and repellents. This behaviour is interpreted as computation. Numerous prototypes of slime... more...

  • Dynamics Of Crowd-mindsby Andrew Adamatzky

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 100.00

    A crowd-mind emerges when formation of a crowd causes fusion of individual minds into one collective mind. Members of the crowd lose their individuality. The deindividuation leads to derationalization: emotional, impulsive and irrational behavior, self-catalytic activities, memory impairment, perceptual distortion, hyper-responsiveness, and distortion... more...

  • Advances in Physarum Machinesby Andrew Adamatzky

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 186.86

    This book is devoted to Slime mould Physarumpolycephalum, which is a large single cell capable for distributed sensing,concurrent information processing, parallel computation and decentralizedactuation. The ease of culturing and experimenting with Physarum makes thisslime mould an ideal substrate for real-world implementations of unconventionalsensing... more...

  • Chaos, CNN, Memristors and Beyondby Andrew Adamatzky; Guanrong Chen

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 118.00

    This invaluable book is a unique collection of tributes to outstanding discoveries pioneered by Leon Chua in nonlinear circuits, cellular neural networks, and chaos. It is comprised of three parts. The first — cellular nonlinear networks, nonlinear circuits and cellular automata — deals with Chua's Lagrangian circuits, cellular wave computers,... more...

  • Designing Beauty: The Art of Cellular Automataby Andrew Adamatzky; Genaro J. Martínez

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 47.26

    This fascinating, colourful  book offers in-depth insights and first-hand working experiences in the production of art works, using simple computational models with rich morphological behaviour, at the edge of mathematics, computer science, physics and biology. It organically combines ground breaking scientific discoveries in the theory of computation... more...
