  • Self-Organization in Complex Ecosystems. (MPB-42)by Ricard V. Solé; Jordi Bascompte

    Princeton University Press 2012; US$ 67.50

    Can physics be an appropriate framework for the understanding of ecological science? Most ecologists would probably agree that there is little relation between the complexity of natural ecosystems and the simplicity of any example derived from Newtonian physics. Though ecologists have long been interested in concepts originally developed by statistical... more...

  • Complexity and Sustainabilityby Jennifer Wells

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 55.95

    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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Thinking Through Systems Thinkingby Ion Georgiou

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 67.95

    Systemicity is receiving wider attention thanks to its evident paradox. On the one hand, it occurs as a problem with complex symptoms. On the other, it is sought after as an approach for dealing with the non-linear reality of the world. At once problem and prize, systemicity continues to confound. This book details the mechanics of this paradox as... 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...

  • X-Eventsby John L. Casti

    HarperCollins 2012; Not Available

    ?I am an assiduous reader of John Casti?s books. He is a real scientific intellectual.?  ?Nassim Nicholas Taleb, New York Times bestselling author of Fooled by Randomness ?Casti is at his best in presenting difficult philosophical ideas enthusiastically and lucidly, and in presenting everyday examples to illustrate them.? ? New York Times Book... more...

  • Operator-Based Nonlinear Control Systems Design and Applicationsby Mingcong Deng

    Wiley 2014; US$ 119.95

    Enables readers to master and apply the operator-theoretic approach Control of nonlinear systems is a multidisciplinary field involving electrical engineering, computer science, and control engineering. Specifically, this book addresses uncertain nonlinearity. Beginning with how real plants are modeled as operator-based plants, the author develops... more...

  • Pattern Formation and Dynamics in Nonequilibrium Systemsby Michael Cross; Henry Greenside

    Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 67.00

    Account of how complex patterns form in sustained nonequilibrium systems; for graduate students in biology, chemistry, engineering, mathematics, and physics. more...

  • Foundations of Complex-system Theoriesby Sunny Y. Auyang

    Cambridge University Press 1998; US$ 52.00

    Analyzes approaches to the study of complexity in the physical, biological, and social sciences. more...
