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

Title  Generalized Gaussian Error Calculus 
Author(s)  Grabe, Michael 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2010. 
Description  XIII, 301 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  For the first time in 200 years Generalized Gaussian Error Calculus addresses??a rigorous, complete and selfconsistent revision of the Gaussian error calculus. Since experimentalists realized that measurements in general are burdened by unknown systematic errors, the classical, widespread used evaluation procedures scrutinizing the consequences of random errors alone turned out to be obsolete. As a matter of course, the error calculus tobe, treating random and unknown systematic errors side by side, should ensure the consistency and traceability of physical units, physical constants and physical quantities at large. The generalized Gaussian error calculus considers unknown systematic errors to spawn biased estimators. Beyond, random errors are asked to conform to the idea of what the author calls welldefined measuring conditions. The approach features the properties of a building kit: any overall uncertainty turns out to be the sum of a contribution due to random errors, to be taken from a confidence interval as put down by Student, and a contribution due to unknown systematic errors, as expressed by an appropriate worst case estimation

Title  Adaptive Networks : Theory, Models and Applications 
Author(s)  Gross, Thilo;Sayama, Hiroki 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2009. 
Description  XIX, 332 p. 13 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  With adaptive, complex networks, the evolution of the network topology and the dynamical processes on the network are equally important and often fundamentally entangled. Recent research has shown that such networks can exhibit a plethora of new phenomena which are ultimately required to describe many realworld networks. Some of those phenomena include robust selforganization towards dynamical criticality, formation of complex global topologies based on simple, local rules, and the spontaneous division of "labor" in which an initially homogenous population of network nodes selforganizes into functionally distinct classes. These are just a few. This book is a stateoftheart survey of those unique networks. In it, leading researchers set out to define the future scope and direction of some of the most advanced developments in the vast field of complex network science and its applications

Title  Complex TimeDelay Systems : Theory and Applications 
Author(s)  Atay, Fatihcan M 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2010. 
Description  XII, 328 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Time delays in dynamical systems arise as an inevitable consequence of finite speeds of information transmission. Realistic models increasingly demand the inclusion of delays in order to properly understand, analyze, design, and control reallife systems. The goal of this book is to present the stateoftheart in research on timedelay dynamics in the framework of complex systems and networks. While the mathematical theory of delay equations is quite mature, its application to the particular problems of complex systems and complexity is a newly emerging field, and the present volume aims to play a pioneering role in this perspective. The chapters in this volume are authored by renowned experts and cover both theory and applications in a wide range of fields, with examples extending from neuroscience and biology to laser physics and vehicle traffic. Furthermore, all chapters include sufficient introductory material and extensive bibliographies, making the book a selfcontained reference for both students and active researchers alike

Title  Information and SelfOrganization : A Macroscopic Approach to Complex Systems 
Author(s)  Haken, Hermann 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2006. 
Description  XIV, 258 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents the concepts needed to deal with selforganizing complex systems from a unifying point of view that uses macroscopic data. The various meanings of the concept "information" are discussed and a general formulation of the maximum information (entropy) principle is used. With the aid of results from synergetics, adequate objective constraints for a large class of selforganizing systems are formulated and examples are given from physics, life and computer science. The relationship to chaos theory is examined and it is further shown that, based on possibly scarce and noisy data, unbiased guesses about processes of complex systems can be made and the underlying deterministic and random forces determined. This allows for probabilistic predictions of processes, with applications to numerous fields in science, technology, medicine and economics. The extensions of the third edition are essentially devoted to an introduction to the meaning of information in the quantum context. Indeed, quantum information science and technology is presently one of the most active fields of research at the interface of physics, technology and information sciences and has already established itself as one of the major future technologies for processing and communicating information on any scale. This book addresses graduate students and nonspecialist researchers wishing to get acquainted with the concept of information from a scientific perspective in more depth. It is suitable as a textbook for advanced courses or for selfstudy
