Chaotic Behavior in Systems

  • Stochastic Processes, Multiscale Modeling, and Numerical Methods for Computational Cellular Biologyby David Holcman

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 106.30

    This book focuses on the modeling and mathematical analysis of stochastic dynamical systems along with their simulations. The collected chapters will review fundamental and current topics and approaches to dynamical systems in cellular biology. This text aims to develop improved mathematical and computational methods with which to study biological... more...

  • Non-Dissipative Effects in Nonequilibrium Systemsby Christian Maes

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 50.78

    This book introduces and discusses both the fundamental aspects and the measurability of applications of time-symmetric kinetic quantities, outlining the features that constitute the non-dissipative branch of non-equilibrium physics. These specific features of non-equilibrium dynamics have largely been ignored in standard statistical mechanics... more...

  • Nonlinear Photonics in Mid-infrared Quantum Cascade Lasersby Louise Jumpertz

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 102.75

    This thesis presents the first comprehensive analysis of quantum cascade laser nonlinear dynamics and includes the first observation of a temporal chaotic behavior in quantum cascade lasers. It also provides the first analysis of optical instabilities in the mid-infrared range. Mid-infrared quantum cascade lasers are unipolar semiconductor lasers,... more...

  • Trajectory Analysis in Health Careby David W. Hollar

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 141.73

    This innovative volume introduces Trajectory Analysis, a new systems-based approach to measuring nonlinear dynamics in continuous change, to public health and epidemiology. It synthesizes influential strands of statistical and probability science (including chaos theory and catastrophe theory) to complement existing methods and models used in the... more...

  • The Seneca Effectby Ugo Bardi

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 59.05

    The essence of this book can be found in a line written by the ancient Roman Stoic Philosopher Lucius Annaeus Seneca: "Fortune is of sluggish growth, but ruin is rapid". This sentence summarizes the features of the phenomenon that we call "collapse," which is typically sudden and often unexpected, like the proverbial "house of cards." But why are such... more...

  • There Is No Theory of Everythingby Lars Q. English

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 59.05

    The main purpose of this book is to introduce a broader audience to emergence by illustrating how discoveries in the physical sciences have informed the ways we think about it. In a nutshell, emergence asserts that non-reductive behavior arises at higher levels of organization and complexity. As physicist Philip Anderson put it, “more is different.”... more...

  • Sound Topology, Duality, Coherence and Wave-Mixingby Pierre Deymier; Keith Runge

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 153.54

    This book offers an essential introduction to the notions of sound wave topology, duality, coherence and wave-mixing, which constitute the emerging new science of sound. It includes general principles and specific examples that illuminate new non-conventional forms of sound (sound topology), unconventional quantum-like behavior of phonons (duality),... more...

  • Chemical Complexityby Alexander S. Mikhailov; Gerhard Ertl

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 118.11

    This book provides an outline of theoretical concepts and their experimental verification in studies of self-organization phenomena in chemical systems, as they emerged in the mid-20th century and have evolved since. Presenting essays on selected topics, it was prepared by authors who have made profound contributions to the field. Traditionally, physical... more...

  • Complexity and Nonlinearity in Cardiovascular Signalsby Riccardo Barbieri; Enzo Pasquale Scilingo; Gaetano Valenza

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 200.79

    This book reports on the latest advances in complex and nonlinear cardiovascular physiology aimed at  obtaining reliable, effective markers for the assessment of heartbeat, respiratory, and blood pressure dynamics. The chapters describe in detail methods that have been previously defined in theoretical physics such as entropy, multifractal... more...

  • Recent Advances in Nonlinear Dynamics and Synchronizationby Kyandoghere Kyamakya; Wolfgang Mathis; Ruedi Stoop; Jean Chamberlain Chedjou; Zhong Li

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 153.54

    This book focuses on modelling and simulation, control and optimization, signal processing, and forecasting in selected nonlinear dynamical systems, presenting both literature reviews and novel concepts.   It develops analytical or numerical approaches, which are simple to use, robust, stable, flexible and universally applicable to the analysis... more...
