  • Complex Adaptive Systems: An Introduction to Computational Models of Social Lifeby John H. Miller; Scott E. Page

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 39.95

    This book provides the first clear, comprehensive, and accessible account of complex adaptive social systems, by two of the field's leading authorities. Such systems--whether political parties, stock markets, or ant colonies--present some of the most intriguing theoretical and practical challenges confronting the social sciences. Engagingly written,... more...

  • Stochastic Control of Partially Observable Systemsby Alain Bensoussan

    Cambridge University Press 1992; US$ 72.00

    These systems play an important role in many applications. 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...

  • Stability Analysis and Robust Control of Time-Delay Systemsby Min Wu; Yong He; Jin-Hua She

    Springer 2010; US$ 149.00

    "Stability Analysis and Robust Control of Time-Delay Systems" focuses on essential aspects of this field, including the stability analysis, stabilization, control design, and filtering of various time-delay systems. Primarily based on the most recent research, this monograph presents all the above areas using a free-weighting matrix approach... 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...

  • Motion Control Systemsby Asif Sabanovic; Kouhei Ohnishi

    Wiley 2011; US$ 154.95

    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...

  • Self-Organization in Complex Ecosystems. (MPB-42)by Solé; Ricard V.; 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$ 95.00

    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...
