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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Non-metrisable Manifoldsby David Gauld

    Springer Singapore 2014; US$ 109.00

    Manifolds fall naturally into two classes depending on whether they can be fitted with a distance measuring function or not. The former, metrisable manifolds, and especially compact manifolds, have been intensively studied by topologists for over a century, whereas the latter, non-metrisable manifolds, are much more abundant but have a more modest... more...

  • Hermann Haken: From the Laser to Synergeticsby Bernd Kröger

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00

    Hermann Haken (born 1927) is one of the ?fathers? of the quantum-mechanical laser theory, formulated between 1962 and 1966, in strong competition with American researchers. Later on, he created Synergetics, the science of cooperation in multicomponent systems. The book concentrates on the development of his scientific work during the first thirty-five... more...

  • Arts, Sciences, and Economicsby Tönu Puu

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2014; US$ 129.00

    This book deals with the economic aspects of changing attitudes in arts and sciences. The effects of the public good character of culture, along with the very long production period and lifetime for its products, are emphasized, since both contribute to the failure of normal market solutions. Embodiment of ideas and the consequences of modern reproduction... more...

  • Modal Analysis of Nonlinear Mechanical Systemsby Gaetan Kerschen

    Springer Vienna 2014; US$ 209.00

    The book first introduces the concept of nonlinear normal modes (NNMs) and their two main definitions. The fundamental differences between classical linear normal modes (LNMs) and NNMs are explained and illustrated using simple examples. Different methods for computing NNMs from a mathematical model are presented. Both advanced analytical and numerical... more...

  • Information Adaptation: The Interplay Between Shannon Information and Semantic Information in Cognitionby Hermann Haken; Juval Portugali

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 54.99

    This monograph demonstrates the interplay between Shannon information and semantic information in cognition. It shows that Shannon?s information acts as driving force for the formation of semantic information; and vice versa, namely, that semantic information participates in the formation of Shannonian information. The authors show that in cognition,... more...

  • Neuronsby Masayoshi Hata

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 124.00

    This unique volume presents a fruitful and beautiful mathematical world hidden in Caianiello's neuronic equations, which describe the instantaneous behavior of a model of a brain or thinking machine. The detailed analysis from a viewpoint of “dynamical systems”, even in a single neuron case, enables us to obtain amazingly good... more...

  • Aha... That is Interesting!by Jan W. Vasbinder

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 60.00

    John Holland is one of the few scientists, who all by themselves and by their pursuits, helped change the course of science and the wealth of human knowledge. There is hardly a field of science or problems, that is not affected by John's work on complexity and in particular, complex adaptive systems. On the occasion of his 85th birthday, many... more...
