By Christophe Letellier,Robert Gilmore

The booklet surveys how chaotic behaviors might be defined with topological instruments and the way this strategy happened in chaos thought. a few sleek purposes are included.

The contents are in most cases dedicated to topology, the most box of Robert Gilmore's works in dynamical structures. They contain a evaluate at the topological research of chaotic dynamics, works performed some time past in addition to the very most modern concerns. lots of the members who released through the 90's, together with the very recognized scientists Otto Rössler, René Lozi and Joan Birman, have made an important effect on chaos thought, discrete chaos, and knot idea, respectively.

Very few books hide the topological method for investigating nonlinear dynamical platforms. the current ebook will supply not just a few old — no longer inevitably well known — contributions (about the different sorts of chaos brought through Rössler and never simply the “Rössler attractor”; Gumowski and Mira's contributions in electronics; Poincaré's historical past in nonlinear dynamics) but additionally a few contemporary functions in laser dynamics, biology, etc.

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

The second one legislations, a cornerstone of thermodynamics, governs the common path of dissipative, non-equilibrium approaches. however it says not anything approximately their real charges or the chance of fluctuations concerning the normal. This interdisciplinary e-book, written and peer-reviewed via overseas specialists, offers contemporary advances within the look for new non-equilibrium rules past the second one legislations, and their functions to a variety of platforms throughout physics, chemistry and biology.

Atlas of Physarum Computing

The slime mildew Physarum polycephalum is a big mobilephone seen 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.
