Title  An Introduction to Complex Systems : Society, Ecology, and Nonlinear Dynamics 
Author(s)  Fieguth, Paul 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XIV, 463 p. 266 illus., 247 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Complex Systems lie at the heart of a variety of largescale phenomena of great significance  global warming, ice ages, water, poverty, pandemics  and this text uses these case studies as motivations and contexts to explore complex systems and related topics of nonlinear dynamics and powerlaw statistics. Although detailed mathematical descriptions of these topics can be challenging, the consequences of a system being nonlinear, powerlaw, or complex are in fact quite accessible. This book blends a tutorial approach to the mathematical aspects of complex systems together with a complementary narrative on the global/ecological/societal implications of such systems. Nearly all engineering undergraduate courses focus on mathematics and systems which are small scale, linear, and Gaussian. Unfortunately there is not a single largescale ecological or social phenomenon that is scalar, linear, and Gaussian. This book offers insights to better understand the largescale problems facing the world and to realize that these cannot be solved by a single, narrow academic field or perspective. Instead, the book seeks to emphasize understanding, concepts, and ideas, in a way that is mathematically rigorous, so that the concepts do not feel vague, but not so technical that the mathematics get in the way. The book is intended for students in technical domains such as engineering, computer science, physics, mathematics, and environmental studies. This second edition adds nine new examples, over 30 additional problems, 50 additional figures, and three new chapters offering a detailed study of system decoupling, extensive solutions to chapter problems, and a timely discussion on the complex systems challenges associated with COVID19 and pandemics in general

Title  Boundaries of a Complex World 
Author(s)  Ludu, Andrei 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2016. 
Description  XIII, 361 p. 158 illus., 112 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The central theme of this book is the extent to which the structure of the free dynamical boundaries of a system controls the evolution of the system as a whole. Applying three orthogonal types of thinking  mathematical, constructivist and morphological, it illustrates these concepts using applications to selected problems from the social and life sciences, as well as economics. ??In a broader context, it introduces and reviews some modern mathematical approaches to the science of complex systems. Standard modeling approaches (based on nonlinear differential equations, dynamic systems, graph theory, cellular automata, stochastic processes, or information theory) are suitable for studying local problems. However they cannot simultaneously take into account all the different facets and phenomena of a complex system, and new approaches are required to solve the challenging problem of correlations between phenomena at different levels and hierarchies, their selforganization and memoryevolutive aspects, the growth of additional structures and are ultimately required to explain why and how such complex systems can display both robustness and flexibility. ????This graduatelevel text also addresses a broader interdisciplinary audience, keeping the mathematical level essentially uniform throughout the book, and involving only basic elements from calculus, algebra, geometry and systems theory. ??

Title  Chaos Detection and Predictability 
Author(s)  Skokos, Charalampos (Haris);Gottwald, Georg A;Laskar, Jacques 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2016. 
Description  XI, 269 p. 122 illus., 44 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Distinguishing chaoticity from regularity in deterministic dynamical systems and specifying the subspace of the phase space in which instabilities are expected to occur is of utmost importance in as disparate areas as astronomy, particle physics and climate dynamics. To address these issues there exists a plethora of methods for chaos detection and predictability. The most commonly employed technique for investigating chaotic dynamics, i.e. the computation of Lyapunov exponents, however, may suffer a number of problems and drawbacks, for example when applied to noisy experimental data. In the last two decades, several novel methods have been developed for the fast and reliable determination of the regular or chaotic nature of orbits, aimed at overcoming the shortcomings of more traditional techniques. This set of lecture notes and tutorial reviews serves as an introduction to and overview of modern chaos detection and predictability techniques for graduate students and nonspecialists. The book covers theoretical and computational aspects of traditional methods to calculate Lyapunov exponents, as well as of modern techniques like the Fast (FLI), the Orthogonal (OFLI) and the Relative (RLI) Lyapunov Indicators, the Mean Exponential Growth factor of Nearby Orbits (MEGNO), the Smaller (SALI) and the Generalized (GALI) Alignment Index and the ???01??? test for chaos

Title  Shallow Clouds, Water Vapor, Circulation, and Climate Sensitivity 
Author(s)  Pincus, Robert;Winker, David;Bony, Sandrine;Stevens, Bjorn 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  VIII, 396 p. 144 illus., 134 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This volume presents a series of overview articles arising from a workshop exploring the links among shallow clouds, water vapor, circulation, and climate sensitivity. It provides a stateofthe art synthesis of understanding about the coupling of clouds and water vapor to the largescale circulation. The emphasis is on two phenomena, namely the selfaggregation of deep convection and interactions between low clouds and the largescale environment, with direct links to the sensitivity of climate to radiative perturbations. Each subject is approached using simulations, observations, and synthesizing theory; particular attention is paid to opportunities offered by new remotesensing technologies, some still prospective. The collection provides a thorough grounding in topics representing one of the World Climate Research Program???s Grand Challenges. Previously published in Surveys in Geophysics, Volume 38, Issue 6, 2017 The articles ???Observing Convective Aggregation???, ???An Observational View of Relationships Between Moisture Aggregation, Cloud, and Radiative Heating Profiles???, ???Implications of Warm Rain in Shallow Cumulus and Congestus Clouds for LargeScale Circulations???, ???A Survey of PrecipitationInduced Atmospheric Cold Pools over Oceans and Their Interactions with the LargerScale Environment???, ???LowCloud Feedbacks from CloudControlling Factors: A Review???, ???Mechanisms and Model Diversity of TradeWind Shallow Cumulus Cloud Feedbacks: A Review???, ???Structure and Dynamical Influence of Water Vapor in the Lower Tropical Troposphere???, ???Emerging Technologies and Synergies for Airborne and SpaceBased Measurements of Water Vapor Profiles???, ???Observational Constraints on Cloud Feedbacks: The Role of Active Satellite Sensors???, and ???EUREC4A: A Field Campaign to Elucidate the Couplings Between Clouds, Convection and Circulation??? are available as open access articles under a CC BY 4.0 license at link.springer.com

Title  Modern Singular SpectralBased Denoising and Filtering Techniques for 2D and 3D Reflection Seismic Data 
Author(s)  Tiwari, R. K;Rekapalli, R 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  XVI, 157 p. 104 illus., 43 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book discusses the latest advances in singular spectrumbased algorithms for seismic data processing, providing an update on recent developments in this field. Over the past few decades, researchers have extensively studied the application of the singular spectrumbased time and frequency domain eigen image methods, singular spectrum analysis (SSA) and multichannel SSA for various geophysical data. This book addresses seismic reflection signals, which represent the amalgamated signals of several unwanted signals/noises, such as ground roll, diffractions etc. Decomposition of such nonstationary and erratic field data is one of the multifaceted tasks in seismic data processing. This volume also includes comprehensive methodological and parametric descriptions, testing on appropriately generated synthetic data, as well as comparisons between time and frequency domain algorithms and their applications to the field data on 1D, 2D, 3D and 4D data sets. Lastly, it features an exclusive chapter with MATLAB coding for SSA

Title  Climate Change Modeling Methodology : Selected Entries from the Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology 
Author(s)  Rasch, Philip J 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer New York, 2012. 
Description  VI, 338 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The Earth's average temperature has risen by 1.4??F over the past century, and computer models project that it will rise much more over the next hundred years, with significant impacts on weather, climate, and human society. Many climate scientists attribute these increases to the buildup of greenhouse gases produced by the burning of fossil fuels and to the anthropogenic production of shortlived climate pollutants. Climate Change Modeling Methodologies: Selected Entries from the Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology provides readers with an introduction to the tools and analysis techniques used by climate change scientists to interpret the role of these forcing agents on climate.?? Readers will also gain a deeper understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of these models and how to test and assess them.?? The contributions include a glossary of key terms and a concise definition of the subject for each topic, as well as recommendations for sources of more detailed information. Features authoritative, peerreviewed contributions on the development and use of??contemporary methods in climate change science Provides insight into the construction, assessment, and testing of climate models Covers individual component models for the atmosphere, ocean, land, and ice, and discusses their contribution to an example of climate change in monsoon systems Discusses how climate change models can shed light on the changing climate of the past and on possible shifts in the future

Title  The Earth's Hydrological Cycle 
Author(s)  Bengtsson, L;Bonnet, R.M;Calisto, M;Destouni, G;Gurney, R;Johannessen, J;Kerr, Y;Lahoz, W.A;Rast, M 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2014. 
Description  VIII, 409 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book gives a comprehensive presentation of our present understanding of the Earth's Hydrological cycle and the problems, consequences and impacts that go with this topic. Water is a central component in the Earth's system. It is indispensable for life on Earth in its present form and influences virtually every aspect of our planet's life support system. On relatively short time scales, atmospheric water vapor interacts with the atmospheric circulation and is crucial in forming the Earth's climate zones. Water vapor is the most powerful of the greenhouse gases and serves to enhance the tropospheric temperature. The dominant part of available water on Earth resides in the oceans. Parts are locked up in the land ice on Greenland and Antarctica and a smaller part is estimated to exist as groundwater. If all the ice over the land and all the glaciers were to melt, the sea level would rise by some 80 m. In comparison, the total amount of water vapor in the atmosphere is small; it amounts to ~ 25 kg/m2, or the equivalent of 25 mm water for each column of air. Yet atmospheric water vapor is crucial for the Earth???s energy balance. The book gives an up to date presentation of the present knowledge.
