  • Symmetry And Complexityby Klaus Mainzer

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 131.04

    Cosmic evolution leads from symmetry to complexity by symmetry breaking and phase transitions. The emergence of new order and structure in nature and society is explained by physical, chemical, biological, social and economic self-organization, according to the laws of nonlinear dynamics. more...

  • Thinking in Complexityby Klaus Mainzer

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 52.58

    The theory of nonlinear, complex systems has become by now a proven problem-solving approach in the natural sciences. And it is now also recognized that many if not most of our social, ecological, economical and political problems are essentially of a global, complex and nonlinear nature. And it is now further accepted than any holistic perspective... more...

  • Thinking in Complexityby Klaus Mainzer

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 85.60

    The first edition of this book, published in 1994, began with the statement that the new science of complexity would characterize the scientific develop­ ment of the 21st century. In the first decade of this century, this prediction has been confirmed by overwhelming new empirical results and theoretical insights the of physical and biological sciences,... more...

  • Komplexe Systeme und Nichtlineare Dynamik in Natur und Gesellschaftby Klaus Mainzer

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 56.52

    Komplexe dynamische Systeme werden in verschiedenen Wissenschaftsdisziplinen untersucht - von Physik, Chemie, Biologie und Medizin über Kognitionswissenschaften und Psychologie bis zu Soziologie und Ökonomie. Dieser Band zieht Bilanz und zeigt künftige Forschungsperspektiven auf. Gemeinsames methodisches Thema ist die Modellierung komplexer Systeme,... more...

  • Gehirn, Computer, Komplexitätby Klaus Mainzer

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 38.01

    Seit den Anfängen in der 50er Jahren haben die Forschungen zum Thema Computer und Gehirn einen beispiellosen Aufschwung erlebt. In der letzten Dekade unseres Jahrhunderts scheint das Gehirn zum Paradigma neuartiger lernfähiger und selbstorganisierender Systeme zu werden, die mit den programmierbaren Rechenmaschinen von einst nur noch bedingte Ähnlichkeit... more...

  • Künstliche Intelligenz – Wann übernehmen die Maschinen?by Klaus Mainzer

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2016; US$ 10.27

    Jeder kennt sie. Smartphones, die mit uns sprechen, Armbanduhren, die unsere Gesundheitsdaten aufzeichnen, Arbeitsabläufe, die sich automatisch organisieren, Autos, Flugzeuge und Drohnen, die sich selber steuern, Verkehrs- und Energiesysteme mit autonomer Logistik oder Roboter, die ferne Planeten erkunden, sind technische Beispiele einer vernetzten... more...

  • The Digital and the Real Worldby Klaus Mainzer

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2017; US$ 0.00

    -->. In the 21st century, digitalization is a global challenge of mankind. Even for the public, it is obvious that our world is increasingly dominated by powerful algorithms and big data. But, how computable is our world? Some people believe that successful problem solving in science, technology, and economies only depends on fast algorithms and data... more...

  • The Universe as Automatonby Klaus Mainzer; Leon Chua

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 55.03

    This Brief is an essay at the interface of philosophy and complexity research, trying to inspire the reader with new ideas and new conceptual developments of cellular automata. Going beyond the numerical experiments of Steven Wolfram, it is argued that cellular automata must be considered complex dynamical systems in their own right, requiring appropriate... more...

  • The Little Book of Timeby J. Eisinger; Klaus Mainzer

    Springer New York 2013; US$ 18.33

    chapter 1 Time in the Classical and Medieval Worldviews From the Beginnings to the Pre-Socratic School Zeno's Time Arrow and Aristotle's Continuum 6 Time and Creation According to Saint Augustine 15 Time and Medieval Astronomy 18 20 Calendars and Clocks chapter 2 Time in the Worldview of Classical Physics 25 Absolute Time According to Newton 26 Relational... more...

  • Local Activity Principleby Klaus Mainzer; Leon O. Chua

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 107.38

    The principle of local activity explains the emergence of complex patterns in a homogeneous medium. At first defined in the theory of nonlinear electronic circuits in a mathematically rigorous way, it can be generalized and proven at least for the class of nonlinear reaction–diffusion systems in physics, chemistry, biology, and brain research.... more...
