  • Models, Simulations, and Representationsby Paul Humphreys; Cyrille Imbert

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    Although scientific models and simulations differ in numerous ways, they are similar in so far as they are posing essentially philosophical problems about the nature of representation. This collection is designed to bring together some of the best work on the nature of representation being done by both established senior philosophers of science and... more...

  • Symmetry and the Beautiful Universeby Leon M. Lederman; Christopher T. Hill

    Prometheus Books 2011; US$ 11.99

    When scientists peer through a telescope at the distant stars in outer space or use a particle-accelerator to analyze the smallest components of matter, they discover that the same laws of physics govern the whole universe at all times and all places. Physicists call the eternal, ubiquitous constancy of the laws of physics symmetry. Symmetry is the... more...

  • Dynamical Chaosby Michael V. Berry; Ian C. Percival; Nigel Oscar Weiss

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 37.95 US$ 34.53

    The leading scientists who gave these papers under the sponsorship of the Royal Society in early 1987 provide reviews of facets of the subject of chaos ranging from the practical aspects of mirror machines for fusion power to the pure mathematics of geodesics on surfaces of negative curvature. The papers deal with systems in which chaotic conditions... more...

  • Anticipatory Systemsby Robert Rosen; G. Klir

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    The first detailed study of this most important class of systems which contain internal predictive models of themselves and/or of their environments and whose predictions are utilized for purposes of present control. This book develops the basic concept of a predictive model, and shows how it can be embedded into a system of feedforward control. Includes... more...

  • Dynamics and Thermodynamics in Hierarchically Organized Systemsby P. Auger; George J. Klir

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    One of the most fundamental and efficient ways of conceptualizing complex systems is to organize them hierarchically. A hierarchically organized system is represented by a network of interconnected subsystems, each of which has its own network of subsystems, and so on, until some elementary subsystems are reached that are not further decomposed. This... more...

  • Systems Research in Health Care, Biocybernetics and Ecologyby G.E. Lasker

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    Applied Systems and Cybernetics, Volume IV: Systems Research in Health Care, Biocybernetics and Ecology documents the proceedings of the International Congress on Applied Systems Research and Cybernetics. This volume compiles papers that present several concepts of health care and reflect thinking in this field. This book introduces various health... more...

  • Computer Science and Operations Research: New Developments in their Interfacesby Osman Balci

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95

    The interface of Operation Research and Computer Science - although elusive to a precise definition - has been a fertile area of both methodological and applied research. The papers in this book, written by experts in their respective fields, convey the current state-of-the-art in this interface across a broad spectrum of research domains which include... more...

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95

    Modeling of Complex Systems: An Introduction describes the framework of complex systems. This book discusses the language of system theory, taxonomy of system concepts, steps in model building, and establishing relations using physical laws. The statistical attributes of data, generation of random numbers fundamental problems of recognition, and input-output... more...

  • Attractive Ellipsoids in Robust Controlby Alexander Poznyak; Andrey Polyakov; Vadim Azhmyakov

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 89.86

    This monograph introduces a newly developed robust-control design technique for a wide class of continuous-time dynamical systems called the ?attractive ellipsoid method.? Along with a coherent introduction to the proposed control design and related topics, the monograph studies nonlinear affine control systems in the presence of uncertainty and presents... more...
