Title  The Science of Disasters : Climate Disruptions, Heart Attacks, and Market Crashes 
Author(s)  Bunde, Armin;Kropp, J??rgen;Schellnhuber, HansJoachim 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2002. 
Description  XX, 453 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Are there universal laws governing the persistence of weather, and is it possible to predict climate transitions as generated by natural or manmade perturbations? How can one quantify the rollercoaster dynamics of stock markets and anticipate megacrashes? Can we diagnose the health condition of patients from heartbeat timeseries analysis which may even form the basis for infarct prevention? This book tackles these questions by applying advanced methods from statistical physics and related fields to all types of nonlinear dynamics prone to disaster. The transdisciplinary analysis is organized in some dozen review articles written by worldclass scientists

Title  Tackling the Inverse Problem for NonAutonomous Systems : Application to the Life Sciences 
Author(s)  Stankovski, Tomislav 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2014. 
Description  XV, 135 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This??thesis presents a new method for following evolving interactions between coupled oscillatory systems of the kind that abound in nature. Examples range from the subcellular level, to ecosystems, through climate dynamics, to the movements of planets and stars.?? Such systems mutually interact, adjusting their internal clocks, and may correspondingly move between synchronized and nonsynchronized states. The thesis describes a way of using Bayesian inference to exploit the presence of random fluctuations, thus analyzing these processes in unprecedented detail.?? It first develops the basic theory of interacting oscillators whose frequencies are nonconstant, and then applies it to the human heart and lungs as an example. Their coupling function can be used to follow with great precision the transitions into and out of synchronization. The method described has the potential to illuminate the ageing process as well as to improve diagnostics in cardiology, anesthesiology and neuroscience, and yields insights into a wide diversity of natural processes

Title  Extreme Events in Nature and Society 
Author(s)  Albeverio, Sergio;Jentsch, Volker;Kantz, Holger 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2006. 
Description  XVI, 352 p. 122 illus., 7 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Significant, and usually unwelcome, surprises, such as floods, financial crisis, epileptic seizures, or material rupture, are the topics of Extreme Events in Nature and Society. The book, authored by foremost experts in these fields, reveals unifying and distinguishing features of extreme events, including problems of understanding and modelling their origin, spatial and temporal extension, and potential impact. The chapters converge towards the difficult problem of anticipation: forecasting the event and proposing measures to moderate or prevent it. Extreme Events in Nature and Society will interest not only specialists, but also the general reader eager to learn how the multifaceted field of extreme events can be viewed as a coherent whole
