Description  245 illus., 142 illus. in color. eReference : online resource 
Abstract Note  This volume of the Encyclopedia of Complexity and Systems Science, Second Edition, focuses on current challenges in the field from materials and mechanics to applications of statistical and nonlinear physics in the life sciences. Challenges today are mostly in the realm of nonequilibrium systems, although certain equilibrium systems also present serious hurdles. Where possible, pairwise articles focus on a single topic, one from a theoretical perspective and the other from an experimental one, providing valuable insights. In other cases, theorists and experimentalists have collaborated on a single article. Coverage includes both quantum and classical systems, and emphasizes 1) mature fields that are not covered in the current specialist literature, (2) topics that fall through the cracks in disciplinary journals/books, or (3) developing areas where the knowledge base is large and robust and upon which future developments will depend. The result is an invaluable resource for condensed matter physicists, material scientists, engineers and life scientists

Title  Solitons 
Author(s)  Helal, Mohamed Atef 
Publication  New York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer US, 2022. 
Description  151 illus., 112 illus. in color. eReference : online resource 
Abstract Note  This newly updated volume of the Encyclopedia of Complexity and Systems Science (ECSS) presents several mathematical models that describe this physical phenomenon, including the famous nonlinear equation KortewegdeVries (KdV) that represents the canonical form of solitons. Also, there exists a class of nonlinear partial differential equations that led to solitons, e.g., KadomtsevPetviashvili (KP), KleinGordon (KG), SineGordon (SG), NonLinear Schr??dinger (NLS), KortewegdeVries Burger???s (KdVB), etc. Different linear mathematical methods can be used to solve these models analytically, such as the Inverse Scattering Transformation (IST), Adomian Decomposition Method, Variational Iteration Method (VIM), Homotopy Analysis Method (HAM) and Homotopy Perturbation Method (HPM). Other nonanalytic methods use the computational techniques available in such popular mathematical packages as Mathematica, Maple, and MATLAB. The main purpose of this volume is to provide physicists, engineers, and their students with the proper methods and tools to solve the soliton equations, and to discover the new possibilities of using solitons in multidisciplinary areas ranging from telecommunications to biology, cosmology, and oceanographic studies

Title  Complex Media and Percolation Theory 
Author(s)  Sahimi, Muhammad;Hunt, Allen G 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer US, 2021. 
Description  152 illus., 75 illus. in color. eReference : online resource 
Abstract Note  Percolation theory describes the effects of the connectivity of microscopic or smallscale elements of a complex medium to its macroscopic or largescale properties. It also describes the conditions under which there may be a continuously connected path of local elements across the medium. The point at which the path is formed is called the percolation threshold. Percolation theory also predicts that many macroscopic properties of complex media follow universal power laws near the percolation threshold that are independent of many microscopic features of such media. There are many applications of percolation theory across the natural sciences, from porous materials, to composite solids, complex networks, and biological systems. This book presents the essential elements of percolation theory, covers the problem of calculating the exponents that characterize the power laws that the percolation quantities follow near the percolation threshold, provides a clear description of the geometry of percolation clusters of the connected paths, and addresses several variations of percolation theory. In particular, bootstrap percolation, explosive percolation, and invasion percolation are featured, which expand the range of natural systems to which percolation may be applicable. In addition, coverage includes several important applications of percolation theory to a range of phenomena, ranging from electrical conductivity, thermopower, the Hall effect, and photoconductivity of disordered semiconductors, to flow, transport and reaction in porous media, geochemistry, biology, and ecology

Title  Synergetics 
Author(s)  Hutt, Axel;Haken, Hermann 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer US, 2020. 
Description  223 illus., 95 illus. in color. eReference : online resource 
Abstract Note  This volume of the ???Encyclopedia of Complexity and Systems Science, Second Edition??? (ECSS), introduces the fundamental physical and mathematical concepts underlying the theory of complex physical, chemical, and biological systems. Numerous applications illustrate how these concepts explain observed phenomena in our daily lives, which range from spatiotemporal patterns in fluids from atmospheric turbulence in hurricanes and tornadoes to feedback dynamics of laser intensity to structures in cities and rhythms in the brain. The spontaneous formation of wellorganized structures out of microscopic system components and their interactions is one of the most fascinating and challenging phenomena for scientists to understand. Biological systems may also exhibit organized structures emanating from interactions of cells and their networks. For instance, underlying structures in the brain emerge as certain mental states, the ability to coordinate movement, or pathologies such as tremor or epileptic seizures. When we try to explain or understand these extremely complex biological phenomena, it is natural to ask whether analogous processes of selforganization may be found in much simpler systems of the inanimate world. In recent decades, it has become increasingly evident that there exist numerous examples in physical and chemical systems in which wellorganized spatiotemporal structures arise out of disordered states. As in living organisms, the functioning of these systems can be maintained only by a flux of energy (and matter) through them. Synergetics combines elements from physics and mathematics to explain how a diversity of systems obey the same basic principles. All chapters in this volume have been thoroughly revised and updated from the first edition of ECSS. The second edition also includes new or expanded coverage of such topics as chaotic dynamics in laser systems and neurons, novel insights into the relation of classical chaos and quantum dynamics, and how noise in the brain tunes observed neural activity and controls animal and human behavior.

Title  Transport Processes Primer 
Author(s)  Pozrikidis, Constantine 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer US, 2019. 
Description  XXV, 279 p. 23 illus., 19 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  In this concise yet comprehensive book, the author discusses the principles of mass, momentum, and energy transport, and derives balance equations for singlecomponent fluids and multicomponent mixtures based on the direct application of natural laws and principles of thermodynamics. Transport equations over control volumes are formulated with reference to the Reynolds transport equation, thereby circumventing the need for adhoc balances for open systems that are best justified in hindsight. Notable features with regard to mass transport include the interpretation of diffusion in mixtures in terms of species parcel motion and separation, the introduction of Fick???s and fractional diffusion laws with reference to random molecular excursions, a detailed account of species and mixture kinematics and dynamics, and the discussion of partial stresses, energies, and entropies of individual mixture components. Key features of this book include: ??? The governing equations are derived from first principles based on the application of natural laws and principles of thermodynamics ??? Balances over control volumes are derived from rigorous equations governing material parcel property evolution ??? Fick???s law, a fractional diffusion law, and other diffusion laws are discussed with reference to random walks ??? A detailed account of species and mixture kinematics and dynamics is presented for binary and multicomponent solutions ??? A tabulated summary of transport equations is presented in differential and integral forms, and an overview of classical thermodynamics is given in an appendix for a selfcontained discourse C. Pozrikidis has taught at the University of California and the University of Massachusetts. He is the author of several books on theoretical and computational topics in science and engineering, applied mathematics, scientific computing, and computer science

Title  Cellular Automata : A Volume in the Encyclopedia of Complexity and Systems Science, Second Edition 
Author(s)  Adamatzky, Andrew 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer US, 2018. 
Description  425 illus., 190 illus. in color. eReference : online resource 
Abstract Note  This volume of the Encyclopedia of Complexity and Systems Science, Second Edition, provides an authoritative introduction and overview of the latest research in cellular automata (CA) models of physical systems, emergent phenomena, computational universality, chaos, growth phenomena, phase transitions, selforganised criticality, reactiondiffusion systems, selfreplications, parallel computation, and more. Fundamental topics of algorithmic complexity, algebraic groups, language theory, evolving CA, ergodic theory, synchronisation, tiling problems and undecidability and topological dynamics of CA are addressed. Cellular automata are regular uniform networks of locallyconnected finitestate machines, and represent discrete systems with nontrivial behavior, including waves, patterns and travelling localisations. CA are ubiquitous: they are mathematical models of computation and computer models of natural systems. Classes of CA presented in this book include additive CA, automata in hyperbolic spaces and noncompact spaces, CA in triangular, pentagonal and hexagonal tessellations, automata with memory, quantum and reversible automata, structurallydynamic CA, and asynchronous automata. Topics added to the second edition include: asynchronous cellular automata, stochastic cellular automata as models of reactiondiffusion processes, cellular automata hardware implementation, cellular automata basins of attraction, orbits of Bernoulli measures in cellular automata, and graphs related to reversibility and complexity in cellular. This stateoftheart reference is unique in bringing together unequalled expertise of interdisciplinary studies at the edge of mathematics, computer science, and physics
