Chaotic Behavior in Systems

  • Chaotic Dynamics of Nonlinear Systemsby S. Neil Rasband

    Dover Publications 2015; US$ 19.95

    Written when the young science of chaos was gaining a foothold in the scientific community, this book introduces the field's concepts, applications, theory, and technique. Suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, researchers, and teachers of mathematics, physics, and engineering, the text's major prerequisite is familiarity with... more...

  • Limit Theorems for Nonlinear Cointegrating Regressionby Qiying Wang

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2015; US$ 127.00

    This book provides the limit theorems that can be used in the development of nonlinear cointegrating regression. The topics include weak convergence to a local time process, weak convergence to a mixture of normal distributions and weak convergence to stochastic integrals. This book also investigates estimation and inference theory in nonlinear cointegrating... more...

  • Dynamics of Vehicle-Road Coupled Systemby Shaopu Yang; Liqun Chen; Shaohua Li

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2015; US$ 129.00

    Vehicle dynamics and road dynamics are usually considered to be two largely independent subjects. In vehicle dynamics, road surface roughness is generally regarded as random excitation of the vehicle, while in road dynamics, the vehicle is generally regarded as a moving load acting on the pavement. This book suggests a new research concept to integrate... more...

  • Order, Disorder and Criticalityby Yurij Holovatch

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2015; US$ 114.00

    This book is the fourth in the series of review papers on advanced problems of phase transitions and critical phenomena, the first three volumes appeared in 2004, 2007, and 2012. It presents reviews in those aspects of criticality and related subjects that have currently attracted much attention due to new and essential contributions. The contents... more...

  • Atlas of Physarum Computingby Andrew Adamatzky

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2015; US$ 98.00

    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...

  • Advances in Cognitive Neurodynamics (IV)by Hans Liljenström

    Springer Netherlands 2015; US$ 239.00

    This volume is the proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Cognitive Neurodynamics (ICCN2013) held in Sweden in 2013. The included papers reflect the large span of research presented and are grouped in ten parts that are organized essentially in a top-down structure. The first parts deal with social/interactive (I) and mental (II) aspects... more...

  • The (1+1)-Nonlinear Universe of the Parabolic Map and Combinatoricsby James D. Louck; Myron L Stein*

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 114.00

    This monograph develops chaos theory from properties of the graphs inverse to the parabolic map of the interval [0, 2], where the height at the midpoint x = 1 may be viewed as a time-like parameter, which together with the x -coordinate, provide the two parameters that uniquely characterize the parabola, and which are used throughout the monograph.... more...

  • Rotation and Momentum Transport in Magnetized Plasmasby Patrick H. Diamond; Xavier Garbet; Philippe Ghendrih; Yanick Sarazin

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 150.00

    This book compiles the contributions from various international experts on magnetized plasma physics, both in controlled fusion and in astrophysics, and on atmospheric science. Most recent results are presented along with new ideas. The various facets of rotation and momentum transport in complex systems are discussed, including atmospheric-ocean turbulence,... more...

  • Chaos, Information Processing and Paradoxical Gamesby Gregoire Nicolis; Vasileios Basios

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 192.00

    This volume provides a self-contained survey of the mechanisms presiding information processing and communication. The main thesis is that chaos and complexity are the basic ingredients allowing systems composed of interesting subunits to generate and process information and communicate in a meaningful way. Emphasis is placed on communication in the... more...

  • Complex Structure and Dynamics of the Heartby Philip Bittihn

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00

    This award-winning thesis investigates the mechanisms underlying cardiac arrhythmia development and termination from an entirely new perspective. By viewing the heart as a complex system, the author uses theoretical tools from nonlinear dynamics combined with numerical simulations and experiments to achieve insights into the relationship between its... more...
