By Shanmuganathan Rajasekar,Miguel A. F. Sanjuan

This introductory textual content offers the fundamental facets and most crucial gains of assorted different types of resonances and anti-resonances in dynamical platforms. specifically, for every resonance, it covers the theoretical ideas, illustrates them with case experiences, and reports the on hand info on mechanisms, characterization, numerical simulations, experimental realizations, attainable quantum analogues, purposes and demanding advances remodeled the years.

Resonances are probably the most basic phenomena exhibited by means of nonlinear structures and check with particular realizations of utmost reaction of a method end result of the skill of that procedure to shop and move power bought from an exterior forcing resource. Resonances are of specific significance in actual, engineering and organic structures - they could end up to be constructive in lots of purposes, whereas resulting in instability or even failures in others.

The booklet is self-contained, supplying the main points of mathematical derivations and methods fascinated with numerical simulations. notwithstanding essentially meant for graduate scholars, it could even be thought of a reference ebook for any researcher attracted to the dynamics of resonant phenomena.

Beyond the Second Law: Entropy Production and Non-equilibrium Systems (Understanding Complex Systems)

The second one legislation, a cornerstone of thermodynamics, governs the common course of dissipative, non-equilibrium strategies. however it says not anything approximately their genuine charges or the chance of fluctuations concerning the commonplace. This interdisciplinary publication, written and peer-reviewed through foreign specialists, provides fresh advances within the look for new non-equilibrium rules past the second one legislations, and their purposes to quite a lot of platforms throughout physics, chemistry and biology.

Atlas of Physarum Computing

The slime mold Physarum polycephalum is a huge telephone seen through the unaided eye. It behaves as an clever nonlinear spatially prolonged energetic medium encapsulated in an elastic membrane. The mobile optimises its progress styles in configurations of attractants and repellents. This behaviour is interpreted as computation.

Mathematical Analysis of Complex Cellular Activity (Frontiers in Applied Dynamical Systems: Reviews and Tutorials)

This booklet comprises assessment articles on mathematical body structure that care for heavily comparable themes yet have been written and will be learn independently. the 1st article studies the fundamental thought of calcium oscillations (common to nearly all phone types), together with spatio-temporal behaviors resembling waves.

Strong Nonlinear Oscillators: Analytical Solutions (Mathematical Engineering)

This textbook provides the movement of natural nonlinear oscillatory platforms and diverse answer tactics which provide the approximate suggestions of the robust nonlinear oscillator equations. It offers the author’s original method for the analytical resolution strategy of the natural nonlinear oscillator approach.
