Title  Dynamic Systems Models : New Methods of Parameter and State Estimation 
Author(s)  Boguslavskiy, Josif A;Borodovsky, Mark 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XX, 201 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This monograph is an exposition of a novel method for solving inverse problems, a method of parameter estimation for time series data collected from simulations of real experiments. These time series might be generated by measuring the dynamics of aircraft in flight, by the function of a hidden Markov model used in bioinformatics or speech recognition or when analyzing the dynamics of asset pricing provided by the nonlinear models of financial mathematics. Dynamic Systems Models demonstrates the use of algorithms based on polynomial approximation which have weaker requirements than alreadypopular iterative methods. Specifically, they do not require a first approximation of a root vector and they allow nondifferentiable elements in the vector functions being approximated. The text covers all the points necessary for the understanding and use of polynomial approximation from the mathematical fundamentals, through algorithm development to the application of the method in, for instance, aeroplane flight dynamics or biological sequence analysis. The technical material is illustrated by the use of worked examples and methods for training the algorithms are included. Dynamic Systems Models provides researchers in aerospatial engineering, bioinformatics and financial mathematics (as well as computer scientists interested in any of these fields) with a reliable and effective numerical method for nonlinear estimation and solving boundary problems when carrying out control design. It will also be of interest to academic researchers studying inverse problems and their solution

Title  Boundaries of a Complex World 
Author(s)  Ludu, Andrei 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. 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  Ultrafast Strong Field Dynamics in Dielectrics 
Author(s)  Sommer, Annkatrin Madlen 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XVI, 127 p. 79 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis presents a systematic discussion of experimental approaches to investigating the nonlinear interaction of ultrashort visible strong fields with dielectrics directly in the time domain. The key finding is the distinctly different peakintensity dependence of the lightmatter energy transfer dynamics on the one hand, and the observed transient optical and electronic modifications on the other. As the induced electron dynamics evolve on subfemtosecond timescales, realtime spectroscopy requires attosecond temporal resolution. This allows a range of parameters to be identified where the optical properties of the samples exposed to ultrashort light fields suffer dramatic changes allowing signal metrology while real absorption leading to dissipation is essentially absent. These findings indicate the feasibility of efficient optical switching at frequencies several orders of magnitude faster than current stateoftheart electronics and thus have farreaching technological consequences

Title  Predictability of Chaotic Dynamics : A Finitetime Lyapunov Exponents Approach 
Author(s)  Vallejo, Juan C;Sanjuan, Miguel A. F 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XV, 136 p. 47 illus., 22 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is primarily concerned with the computational aspects of predictability of dynamical systems ??? in particular those where observation, modeling and computation are strongly interdependent. Unlike with physical systems under control in laboratories, for instance in celestial mechanics, one is confronted with the observation and modeling of systems without the possibility of altering the key parameters of the objects studied. Therefore, the numerical simulations offer an essential tool for analyzing these systems. With the widespread use of computer simulations to solve complex dynamical systems, the reliability of the numerical calculations is of everincreasing interest and importance. This reliability is directly related to the regularity and instability properties of the modeled flow. In this interdisciplinary scenario, the underlying physics provide the simulated models, nonlinear dynamics provides their chaoticity and instability properties, and the computer sciences provide the actual numerical implementation. This book introduces and explores precisely this link between the models and their predictability characterization based on concepts derived from the field of nonlinear dynamics, with a focus on the finitetime Lyapunov exponents approach. The method is illustrated using a number of wellknown continuous dynamical systems, including the Contopoulos, H??nonHeiles and R??ssler systems. To help students and newcomers quickly learn to apply these techniques, the appendix provides descriptions of the algorithms used throughout the text and details how to implement them in order to solve a given continuous dynamical system

Title  Orbital Dynamics in the Gravitational Field of Small Bodies 
Author(s)  Yu, Yang 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2016. 
Description  XVIII, 123 p. 49 illus., 17 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This prizewinning PhD thesis presents a general discussion of the orbital motion close to solar system small bodies (SSSBs), which induce noncentral asymmetric gravitational fields in their neighborhoods. It introduces the methods of qualitative theory in nonlinear dynamics to the study of local/global behaviors around SSSBs. Detailed mechanical models are employed throughout this dissertation, and specific numeric techniques are developed to compensate for the difficulties of directly analyzing. Applying this method, several target systems, like asteroid 216 Kleopatra, are explored in great detail, and the results prove to be both revealing and pervasive for a large group of SSSBs.

Title  Chaos Detection and Predictability 
Author(s)  Skokos, Charalampos (Haris);Gottwald, Georg A;Laskar, Jacques 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. 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  Rogue and Shock Waves in Nonlinear Dispersive Media 
Author(s)  Onorato, Miguel;Resitori, Stefania;Baronio, Fabio 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIII, 370 p. 152 illus., 132 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This selfcontained set of lectures addresses a gap in the literature by providing a systematic link between the theoretical foundations of the subject matter and cuttingedge applications in both geophysical fluid dynamics and nonlinear optics. Rogue and shock waves are phenomena that may occur in the propagation of waves in any nonlinear dispersive medium. Accordingly, they have been observed in disparate settings ??? as ocean waves, in nonlinear optics, in BoseEinstein condensates, and in plasmas. Rogue and dispersive shock waves are both characterized by the development of extremes: for the former, the wave amplitude becomes unusually large, while for the latter, gradients reach extreme values. Both aspects strongly influence the statistical properties of the wave propagation and are thus considered together here in terms of their underlying theoretical treatment. This book offers a selfcontained graduatelevel text intended as both an introduction and reference guide for a new generation of scientists working on rogue and shock wave phenomena across a broad range of fields in applied physics and geophysics

Title  Interfacial Wave Theory of Pattern Formation in Solidification : Dendrites, Fingers, Cells and Free Boundaries 
Author(s)  Xu, JianJun 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XX, 591 p. 168 illus., 69 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This comprehensive work explores interfacial instability and pattern formation in dynamic systems away from the equilibrium state in solidification and crystal growth. Further, this significantly expanded 2nd edition introduces and reviews the progress made during the last two decades. In particular, it describes the most prominent pattern formation phenomena commonly observed in material processing and crystal growth in the framework of the previously established interfacial wave theory, including free dendritic growth from undercooled melt, cellular growth and eutectic growth in directional solidification, as well as viscous fingering in HeleShaw flow. It elucidates the key problems, systematically derives their mathematical solutions by pursuing a unified, asymptotic approach, and finally carefully examines these results by comparing them with the available experimental results. The asymptotic approach described here will be useful for the investigation of pattern formation phenomena occurring in a much broader class of inhomogeneous dynamical systems. In addition, the results on global stability and selection mechanisms of pattern formation will be of particular interest to researchers working on material processing and crystal growth. The stability mechanisms of a curved front and the pattern formation have been fundamental subjects in the areas of condensedmatter physics, materials science, crystal growth, and fluid mechanics for some time now. This book offers a stimulating and insightful introduction for all physicists, engineers and applied mathematicians working in the fields of soft condensedmatter physics, materials science, mechanical and chemical engineering, fluid dynamics, and nonlinear sciences

Title  Qualitative Theory of Dynamical Systems, Tools and Applications for Economic Modelling : Lectures Given at the COST Training School on New Economic Complex Geography at Urbino, Italy, 1719 September 2015 
Author(s)  Bischi, Gian Italo;Panchuk, Anastasiia;Radi, Davide 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XVI, 327 p. 171 illus., 41 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The book presents the lectures delivered during a short course held at Urbino University in summer 2015 on qualitative theory of dynamical systems, included in the activities of the COST Action IS1104 ???The EU in the new economic complex geography: models, tools and policy evaluation???. It provides a basic introduction to dynamical systems and optimal control both in continuous and discrete time, as well as some numerical methods and applications in economic modelling. Economic and social systems are intrinsically dynamic, characterized by interdependence, nonlinearity and complexity, and these features can only be approached using a qualitative analysis based on the study of invariant sets (equilibrium points, limit cycles and more complex attractors, together with the boundaries of their basins of attraction), which requires a tradeoff between analytical, geometrical and numerical methods. Even though the early steps of the qualitative theory of dynamical systems have been in continuous time models, in economic and social modelling discrete time is often used to describe eventdriven (often decisiondriven) evolving systems. The book is written for Ph.D. and master???s students, postdoctoral fellows, and researchers in economics or sociology, and it only assumes a basic knowledge of calculus. However it also suggests some more advanced topics
