Chaotic Behavior in Systems

  • There Is No Theory of Everythingby Lars Q. English

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 58.78

    The main purpose of this book is to introduce a broader audience to emergence by illustrating how discoveries in the physical sciences have informed the ways we think about it. In a nutshell, emergence asserts that non-reductive behavior arises at higher levels of organization and complexity. As physicist Philip Anderson put it, “more is different.”... more...

  • Sound Topology, Duality, Coherence and Wave-Mixingby Pierre Deymier; Keith Runge

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 152.84

    This book offers an essential introduction to the notions of sound wave topology, duality, coherence and wave-mixing, which constitute the emerging new science of sound. It includes general principles and specific examples that illuminate new non-conventional forms of sound (sound topology), unconventional quantum-like behavior of phonons (duality),... more...

  • Chemical Complexityby Alexander S. Mikhailov; Gerhard Ertl

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 117.57

    This book provides an outline of theoretical concepts and their experimental verification in studies of self-organization phenomena in chemical systems, as they emerged in the mid-20th century and have evolved since. Presenting essays on selected topics, it was prepared by authors who have made profound contributions to the field. Traditionally, physical... more...

  • Complexity and Nonlinearity in Cardiovascular Signalsby Riccardo Barbieri; Enzo Pasquale Scilingo; Gaetano Valenza

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 199.87

    This book reports on the latest advances in complex and nonlinear cardiovascular physiology aimed at  obtaining reliable, effective markers for the assessment of heartbeat, respiratory, and blood pressure dynamics. The chapters describe in detail methods that have been previously defined in theoretical physics such as entropy, multifractal... more...

  • Recent Advances in Nonlinear Dynamics and Synchronizationby Kyandoghere Kyamakya; Wolfgang Mathis; Ruedi Stoop; Jean Chamberlain Chedjou; Zhong Li

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 152.84

    This book focuses on modelling and simulation, control and optimization, signal processing, and forecasting in selected nonlinear dynamical systems, presenting both literature reviews and novel concepts.   It develops analytical or numerical approaches, which are simple to use, robust, stable, flexible and universally applicable to the analysis... more...

  • Understanding Systemsby Jamshid Ghaboussi; Michael F Insana

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2017; US$ 78.00 US$ 70.98

    Our book presents a unique and original viewpoint on natural and engineered systems. The authors' goal is to propose and explain core principles that govern the formation and function of simple and complex systems. Examples are drawn from a broad range of topics from common materials and manufactured structures to the behavior of cells, organisms... more...

  • Qualitative and Quantitative Analysis of Nonlinear Systemsby Michael Z. Zgurovsky; Pavlo O. Kasyanov

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 117.57

    Here, the authors present modern methods of analysis for nonlinear systems which may occur in fields such as physics, chemistry, biology, or economics. They concentrate on the following topics, specific for such systems: (a) constructive existence results and regularity theorems for all weak solutions;  (b) convergence results for solutions... more...

  • Safety-II in Practiceby Erik Hollnagel

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 44.95

    Safety-I is defined as the freedom from unacceptable harm. The purpose of traditional safety management is therefore to find ways to ensure this ‘freedom’. But as socio-technical systems steadily have become larger and less tractable, this has become harder to do. Resilience engineering pointed out from the very beginning that resilient performance... more...

  • Application of New Cybernetics in Physicsby Oleg Kupervasser

    Elsevier Science 2017; US$ 150.00

    Application of New Cybernetics in Physics describes the application of new cybernetics to physical problems and the resolution of basic physical paradoxes by considering external observer influence. This aids the reader in solving problems that were solved incorrectly or have not been solved. Three groups of problems of the new cybernetics are... more...

  • Progress in Turbulence VIIby Ramis Örlü; Alessandro Talamelli; Martin Oberlack; Joachim Peinke

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 176.35

    This volume collects the edited and reviewed contribution presented in the 7th iTi Conference in Bertinoro, covering fundamental and applied aspects in turbulence. In the spirit of the iTi conference, the volume is produced after the conference so that the authors had the opportunity to incorporate comments and discussions raised during the meeting.... more...
