Chaotic Behavior in Systems

  • Rogue and Shock Waves in Nonlinear Dispersive Mediaby Miguel Onorato; Stefania Resitori; Fabio Baronio

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 67.38

    This self-contained set of lectures addresses a gap in the literature by providing a systematic link between the theoretical foundations of the subject matter and cutting-edge applications in both geophysical fluid dynamics and nonlinear optics. Rogue and shock waves are phenomena that may occur in the propagation of waves in any nonlinear dispersive... more...

  • Periodic Flows to Chaos in Time-delay Systemsby Albert C. J. Luo

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 112.31

    This book for the first time examines periodic motions to chaos in time-delay systems, which exist extensively in engineering. For a long time, the stability of time-delay systems at equilibrium has been of great interest from the Lyapunov theory-based methods, where one cannot achieve the ideal results. Thus, time-delay discretization in time-delay... more...

  • The Lidov-Kozai Effect - Applications in Exoplanet Research and Dynamical Astronomyby Ivan Shevchenko

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 101.08

    This book deals with an effect in celestial mechanics that has become quite important in exoplanet research. The Lidov-Kozai effect reveals itself in coherent periodic variations (which can be very large) of the inclination and eccentricity of an orbiting body in the presence of an inclined perturber. The effect is known to be important in the... more...

  • Complex Networks and Dynamicsby Pasquale Commendatore; Mariano Matilla-Garcia; Luis M. Varela; Jose S. Cánovas

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 78.61

    This volume sheds light on the current state of complex networks and nonlinear dynamics applied to the understanding of economic and social phenomena ranging from geographical economics to macroeconomics and finance, and its purpose is to give readers an overview of several interesting topics for research at an intermediate level. Three different... more...

  • Quantum-Enhanced Nonlinear Spectroscopyby Frank Schlawin

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 97.71

    This thesis focuses on nonlinear spectroscopy from a quantum optics perspective. First, it provides a detailed introduction to nonlinear optical signals; starting from Glauber?s photon counting formalism, it establishes the diagrammatic formulation, which forms the backbone of nonlinear molecular spectroscopy.   The main body of the thesis... more...

  • Lectures in Feedback Design for Multivariable Systemsby Alberto Isidori

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 84.23

    This book focuses on methods that relate, in one form or another, to the ?small-gain theorem?. It is aimed at readers who are interested in learning methods for the design of feedback laws for linear and nonlinear multivariable systems in the presence of model uncertainties. With worked examples throughout, it includes both introductory material and... more...

  • Extracellular Potentials in the Hippocampusby Antonio Fernández Ruiz

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 97.71

    In this thesis, the author investigates the biophysical basis of the local field potential (LFP) as a way of gaining a better understanding of its underlying physiological mechanisms. The results represent major advances in our understanding and interpretation of LFPs and brain oscillations. They highlight the importance of using suitable experimental... more...

  • Neoclassical Theory of Electromagnetic Interactionsby Anatoli Babin; Alexander Figotin

    Springer London 2016; US$ 157.24

    In this monograph, the authors present their recently developed theory of electromagnetic interactions. This neoclassical approach extends the classical electromagnetic theory down to atomic scales and allows the explanation of various non-classical phenomena in the same framework. While the classical Maxwell?Lorentz electromagnetism theory succeeds... more...

  • Science Dynamics and Research Productionby Nikolay K. Vitanov

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 95.46

    This book deals with methods to evaluate scientific productivity. In the book statistical methods, deterministic and stochastic models and numerous indexes are discussed that will help the reader to understand the nonlinear science dynamics and to be able to develop or construct systems for appropriate evaluation of research productivity and management... more...

  • A Guide to Temporal Networksby Naoki Masuda; Renaud Lambiotte

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2016; US$ 78.00 US$ 63.96

    Network science offers a powerful language to represent and study complex systems composed of interacting elements — from the Internet to social and biological systems. In its standard formulation, this framework relies on the assumption that the underlying topology is static, or changing very slowly as compared to dynamical processes taking... more...
