By Cristoforo Sergio Bertuglia,Franco Vaio

overlaying a wide diversity of subject matters, this article offers a finished survey of the modeling of chaotic dynamics and complexity within the normal and social sciences. Its consciousness to versions in either the actual and social sciences and the specific philosophical strategy make this a different textual content in the middle of many present books on chaos and complexity. together with an in depth index and bibliography besides quite a few examples and simplified versions, this is often an incredible direction text

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 techniques. however it says not anything approximately their genuine charges or the chance of fluctuations in regards to the normal. This interdisciplinary ebook, written and peer-reviewed by means of foreign specialists, offers contemporary advances within the look for new non-equilibrium ideas past the second one legislation, and their functions to a variety of structures throughout physics, chemistry and biology.

Atlas of Physarum Computing

The slime mold Physarum polycephalum is a big mobile obvious via the unaided eye. It behaves as an clever nonlinear spatially prolonged lively medium encapsulated in an elastic membrane. The mobile optimises its development 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 e-book comprises assessment articles on mathematical body structure that care for heavily similar themes yet have been written and will be learn independently. the 1st article reports the elemental concept of calcium oscillations (common to just about all cellphone types), together with spatio-temporal behaviors reminiscent of waves.

Strong Nonlinear Oscillators: Analytical Solutions (Mathematical Engineering)

This textbook offers the movement of natural nonlinear oscillatory structures and numerous answer techniques which offer the approximate ideas of the powerful nonlinear oscillator equations. It offers the author’s original method for the analytical resolution strategy of the natural nonlinear oscillator process.
