Title  Chaos: Concepts, Control and Constructive Use 
Author(s)  Bolotin, Yurii;Tur, Anatoli;Yanovsky, Vladimir 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XI, 281 p. 119 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book offers a short and concise introduction to the many facets of chaos theory. While the study of chaotic behavior in nonlinear, dynamical systems is a wellestablished research field with ramifications in all areas of science, there is a lot to be learnt about how chaos can be controlled and, under appropriate conditions, can actually be constructive in the sense of becoming a control parameter for the system under investigation, stochastic resonance being a prime example. The present work stresses the latter aspects and, after recalling the paradigm changes introduced by the concept of chaos, leads the reader skillfully through the basics of chaos control by detailing the relevant algorithms for both Hamiltonian and dissipative systems, among others. The main part of the book is then devoted to the issue of synchronization in chaotic systems, an introduction to stochastic resonance, and a survey of ratchet models. In this second, revised and enlarged edition, two more chapters explore the many interfaces of quantum physics and dynamical systems, examining in turn statistical properties of energy spectra, quantum ratchets, and dynamical tunneling, among others. This text is particularly suitable for nonspecialist scientists, engineers, and applied mathematical scientists from related areas, wishing to enter the field quickly and efficiently. From the reviews of the first edition: This book is an excellent introduction to the key concepts and control of chaos in (random) dynamical systems [...] The authors find an outstanding balance between main physical ideas and mathematical terminology to reach their audience in an impressive and lucid manner. This book is ideal for anybody who would like to grasp quickly the main issues related to chaos in discrete and continuous time. Henri Schurz, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1178, 2010

Title  Controlling Synchronization Patterns in Complex Networks 
Author(s)  Lehnert, Judith 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XV, 203 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This research aims to achieve a fundamental understanding of synchronization and its interplay with the topology of complex networks. Synchronization is a ubiquitous phenomenon observed in different contexts in physics, chemistry, biology, medicine and engineering. Most prominently, synchronization takes place in the brain, where it is associated with several cognitive capacities but is  in abundance  a characteristic of neurological diseases. Besides zerolag synchrony, group and cluster states are considered, enabling a description and study of complex synchronization patterns within the presented theory. Adaptive control methods are developed, which allow the control of synchronization in scenarios where parameters drift or are unknown. These methods are, therefore, of particular interest for experimental setups or technological applications. The theoretical framework is demonstrated on generic models, coupled chemical oscillators and several detailed examples of neural networks

Title  Theory of Hybrid Systems: Deterministic and Stochastic 
Author(s)  Alwan, Mohamad S;Liu, Xinzhi 
Publication  Singapore, Springer Singapore, 2018. 
Description  XVI, 241 p. 38 illus., 37 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is the first to present the application of the hybrid system theory to systems with EPCA (equations with piecewise continuous arguments). The hybrid system paradigm is a valuable modeling tool for describing a wide range of realworld applications. Moreover, although new technology has produced, and continues to produce highly hierarchical sophisticated machinery that cannot be analyzed as a whole system, hybrid system representation can be used to reduce the structural complexity of these systems. That is to say, hybrid systems have become a modeling priority, which in turn has led to the creation of a promising research field with several application areas. As such, the book explores recent developments in the area of deterministic and stochastic hybrid systems using the Lyapunov and Razumikhin???Lyapunov methods to investigate the systems??? properties. It also describes properties such as stability, stabilization, reliable control, Hinfinity optimal control, inputtostate stability (ISS)/stabilization, state estimation, and largescale singularly perturbed systems

Title  Hydraulic and ElectricHydraulic Control Systems 
Author(s)  Walters, R.B 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2000. 
Description  XIII, 331 p. 26 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Force and motion control systems of varying degrees of sophistication have shaped the lives of all individuals living in industrialized countries all over the world, and together with communication technology are largely responsible for the high standard ofliving prevalent in many communities. The brains of the vast majority of current control systems are electronic, in the shape of computers, microprocessors or programmable logic controllers (PLC), the nerves are provided by sensors, mainly electromech?? anical transducers, and the muscle comprises the drive system, in most cases either electric, pneumatic or hydraulic. The factors governing the choice of the most suitable drive are the nature of the application, the performance specification, size, weight, environ?? mental and safety constraints, with higher power levels favouring hydraulic drives. Past experience, especially in the machine tool sector, has clearly shown that, in the face of competition from electric drives, it is difficult to make a convincing case for hydraulic drives at the bottom end of the power range, specifically at fractional horsepower level. A further, and frequently overriding factor in the choice of drive is the familiarity of the system designer with a particular discipline, which can inhibit the selection of the optimum and most costeffective solution for a given application. One of the objectives of this book is to help the electrical engineer overcome his natural reluctance to apply any other than electric drives

Title  Complex Systems 
Author(s)  Goles, E;Mart??nez, Servet 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2001. 
Description  VIII, 301 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This volume contains the courses given at the Sixth Summer School on Complex Systems held at Facultad de Ciencias Fisicas y Maternaticas, Universidad de Chile at Santiago, Chile, from 14th to 18th December 1998. This school was addressed to graduate students and researchers working on areas related with recent trends in Complex Systems, including dynamical systems, cellular automata, complexity and cutoff in Markov chains. Each contribution is devoted to one of these subjects. In some cases they are structured as surveys, presenting at the same time an original point of view and showing mostly new results. The paper of Pierre Arnoux investigates the relation between low complex systems and chaotic systems, showing that they can be put into relation by some re?? normalization operations. The case of quasicrystals is fully studied, in particular the Sturmian quasicrystals. The paper of Franco Bagnoli and Raul Rechtman establishes relations be?? tween Lyapunov exponents and synchronization processes in cellular automata. The principal goal is to associate tools, usually used in physical problems, to an important problem in cellularautomata and computer science, the synchronization problem. The paper of Jacques Demongeot and colleagues gives a presentation of at?? tractors of dynamical systems appearing in biological situations. For instance, the relation between positive or negative loops and regulation systems

Title  Dynamics of Nonlinear TimeDelay Systems 
Author(s)  Lakshmanan, Muthusamy;Senthilkumar, Dharmapuri Vijayan 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2011. 
Description  XVII, 313 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Synchronization of chaotic systems, a patently nonlinear phenomenon, has emerged as a highly active interdisciplinary research topic at the interface of physics, biology, applied mathematics and engineering sciences. In this connection, timedelay systems described by delay differential equations have developed as particularly suitable tools for modeling specific dynamical systems. Indeed, timedelay is ubiquitous in many physical systems, for example due to finite switching speeds of amplifiers in electronic circuits, finite lengths of vehicles in traffic flows, finite signal propagation times in biological networks and circuits, and quite generally whenever memory effects are relevant. This monograph presents the basics of chaotic timedelay systems and their synchronization with an emphasis on the effects of timedelay feedback which give rise to new collective dynamics. Special attention is devoted to scalar chaotic/hyperchaotic timedelay systems, and some higher order models, occurring in different branches of science and technology as well as to the synchronization of their coupled versions. Last but not least, the presentation as a whole strives for a balance between the necessary mathematical description of the basics and the detailed presentation of realworld applications

Title  Hyperbolic Chaos : A Physicist???s View 
Author(s)  Kuznetsov, Sergey P 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2012. 
Description  XVI, 320 p. 80 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  "Hyperbolic Chaos: A Physicist???s View??? presents recent progress on uniformly hyperbolic attractors in dynamical systems from a physical rather than mathematical perspective (e.g. the Plykin attractor, the Smale ??? Williams solenoid). The structurally stable attractors manifest strong stochastic properties, but are insensitive to variation of functions and parameters in the dynamical systems. Based on these characteristics of hyperbolic chaos, this monograph shows how to find hyperbolic chaotic attractors in physical systems and how to design a physical systems that possess hyperbolic chaos. ?? This book is designed as a reference work for university professors and researchers in the fields of physics, mechanics, and engineering. ?? Dr. Sergey P. Kuznetsov is a professor at the Department of Nonlinear Processes, Saratov State University, Russia. ??

Title  Cybernetical Physics : From Control of Chaos to Quantum Control 
Author(s)  Fradkov, A 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2007. 
Description  XII, 236 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The control of complex systems is one of the most important aspects in dealing with systems exhibiting nonlinear behaviour or similar features that defy traditional control techniques. This specific subject is gradually becoming known as cybernetical physics, borrowing methods from both theoretical physics and control engineering. This book is, perhaps, the first attempt to present a unified exposition of the subject and methodology of cybernetical physics as well as solutions to some of its problems. Emphasis of the book is on the examination of fundamental limits on energy transformation by means of control procedures in both conservative and dissipative systems. A survey of application in physics includes the control of chaos, synchronisation of coupled oscillators, pendulum chains, reactions in physical chemistry and of quantum systems such as the dissociation of diatomic molecules. This book has been written having researchers from various backgrounds in physics, mathematics and engineering in mind and is thus also suitable as introduction to graduate students working on the understanding of a broad range of complex systems in the natural sciences
