  • Models as Make-Believeby Adam Toon

    Palgrave Macmillan 2012; US$ 90.00

    Scientists often try to understand the world by building simplified and idealised models of it. Adam Toon develops a new approach to scientific models by comparing them to the dolls and toy trucks of children's imaginative games, and offers a unified framework to solve difficult metaphysical problems and help to make sense of scientific practice. more...

  • Thinking Through Systems Thinkingby Ion Georgiou

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 67.95

    Guided by an original analysis of the fundamental idea of emergent property, Thinking Through Systems Thinking uncovers the distinct significance, but also incompleteness, of the systems approach as a theory of human epistemological engagement. more...

  • Emergence and Embodimentby Bruce Clarke; Mark B. N. Hansen; Barbara Herrnstein Smith; E. Roy Weintraub

    Duke University Press 2009; US$ 84.95

    Explores the cultural legacy of cybernetics and neocybernetics (the cybernetics of cybernetics) that offers new insight on the role of the human in an era of the posthuman. more...

  • Complexity and Sustainabilityby Jennifer Wells

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 130.00

    Complex dynamic system studies have been studied explicitly in the natural sciences, and most only implicitly throughout other fields. Yet much great social theory and philosophy is in fact based in complexity, and important concepts like postmodernism, risk, and collapse all stem from complexity. Six key terms are explored: nonlinearity, feedbacks,... more...

  • Dynamic Modeling and Predictive Control in Solid Oxide Fuel Cellsby Biao Huang; Yutong Qi; A. K. M. Monjur Murshed

    Wiley 2013; US$ 149.95

    The high temperature solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) is identified as one of the leading fuel cell technology contenders to capture the energy market in years to come. However, in order to operate as an efficient energy generating system, the SOFC requires an appropriate control system which in turn requires a detailed modelling of process dynamics.... more...

  • Autonomous Learning Systemsby Plamen Angelov

    Wiley 2012; US$ 149.95

    Autonomous Learning Systems is the result of over a decade of focused research and studies in this emerging area which spans a number of well-known and well-established disciplines that include machine learning, system identification, data mining, fuzzy logic, neural networks, neuro-fuzzy systems, control theory and pattern recognition. The evolution... more...

  • In the Wake of Chaosby Stephen H. Kellert

    University of Chicago Press 1994; US$ 22.50

    Chaos theory has captured scientific and popular attention. What began as the discovery of randomness in simple physical systems has become a widespread fascination with "chaotic" models of everything from business cycles to brainwaves to heart attacks. But what exactly does this explosion of new research into chaotic phenomena mean for our understanding... more...

  • The Engine of Complexityby John Mayfield

    Columbia University Press 2013; US$ 33.99

    The concepts of evolution and complexity theory have become part of the intellectual ether permeating the life sciences, the social and behavioral sciences, and more recently, management science and economics. In this new title, John Mayfield elegantly synthesizes core concepts from across disciplines to offer a new approach to understanding how evolution... more...

  • Motion Control Systemsby Asif Sabanovic; Kouhei Ohnishi

    Wiley 2011; US$ 149.95

    Motion Control Systems is concerned with design methods that support the never-ending requirements for faster and more accurate control of mechanical motion. The book presents material that is fundamental, yet at the same time discusses the solution of complex problems in motion control systems. Methods presented in the book are based on the authors'... more...
