By Paul Glendinning

by means of supplying an creation to nonlinear differential equations, Dr Glendinning goals to equip the scholar with the mathematical information had to delight in balance concept and bifurcations. His technique is readable and covers fabric either outdated and new to undergraduate classes. incorporated are remedies of the Poincaré-Bendixson theorem, the Hopf bifurcation and chaotic structures. the original remedy that's present in this publication will end up to be a vital consultant to balance and chaos.

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

The second one legislation, a cornerstone of thermodynamics, governs the typical path of dissipative, non-equilibrium strategies. however it says not anything approximately their real premiums or the likelihood of fluctuations concerning the typical. This interdisciplinary e-book, written and peer-reviewed via foreign specialists, offers fresh advances within the look for new non-equilibrium rules past the second one legislation, and their functions 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 by means of 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.
