Title  An Introduction to Complex Systems : Society, Ecology, and Nonlinear Dynamics 
Author(s)  Fieguth, Paul 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XII, 346 p. 243 illus., 178 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This undergraduate text explores a variety of largescale phenomena  global warming, ice ages, water, poverty  and uses these case studies as a motivation to explore nonlinear dynamics, powerlaw statistics, and complex systems. Although the 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 students 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 undergraduate students in a technical domain such as engineering, computer science, physics, mathematics, and environmental studies

Title  Statistical Physics and Computational Methods for Evolutionary Game Theory 
Author(s)  Javarone, Marco Alberto 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  IX, 74 p. 27 illus., 25 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents an introduction to Evolutionary Game Theory (EGT) which is an emerging field in the area of complex systems attracting the attention of researchers from disparate scientific communities. EGT allows one to represent and study several complex phenomena, such as the emergence of cooperation in social systems, the role of conformity in shaping the equilibrium of a population, and the dynamics in biological and ecological systems. Since EGT models belong to the area of complex systems, statistical physics constitutes a fundamental ingredient for investigating their behavior. At the same time, the complexity of some EGT models, such as those realized by means of agentbased methods, often require the implementation of numerical simulations. Therefore, beyond providing an introduction to EGT, this book gives a brief overview of the main statistical physics tools (such as phase transitions and the Ising model) and computational strategies for simulating evolutionary games (such as Monte Carlo algorithms on lattices). ??This book will appeal to students and researchers in this burgeoning field of complex systems

Title  The Statistical Physics of Fixation and Equilibration in IndividualBased Models 
Author(s)  Ashcroft, Peter 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XV, 164 p. 63 illus., 13 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis explores several interdisciplinary topics at the border of theoretical physics and biology, presenting results that demonstrate the power of methods from statistical physics when applied to neighbouring disciplines. From birthdeath processes in switching environments to discussions on the meaning of quasipotential landscapes in highdimensional spaces, this thesis is a shining example of the efficacy of interdisciplinary research. The fields advanced in this work include game theory, the dynamics of cancer, and invasion of mutants in resident populations, as well as general contributions to the theory of stochastic processes. The background material provides an intuitive introduction to the theory and applications of stochastic population dynamics, and the use of techniques from statistical physics in their analysis. The thesis then builds on these foundations to address problems motivated by biological phenomena

Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  X, 272 p. 105 illus., 67 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents results on the latest perspectives and challenges within the interrelated fields of econophysics and sociophysics, which have emerged from the application of statistical physics to economics and sociology. Economic and financial markets appear to be in a permanent state of flux. Billions of agents interact with each other, giving rise to complex dynamics of economic quantities at the micro and macro levels. With the availability of huge data sets, researchers can address questions at a much more granular level than was previously possible. Fundamental questions regarding the aggregation of actions and information and the coordination, complexity, and evolution of economic and financial networks are currently receiving much attention in the econophysics research agenda. In parallel, the sociophysics literature has focused on largescale social data and their interrelations. In this book, leading researchers from different communities economists, sociologists, financial analysts, mathematicians, physicists, statisticians, and others report on their recent work and their analyses of economic and social behavior.

Title  The Statistical Mechanics of Financial Markets 
Author(s)  Voit, Johannes 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2001. 
Description  XII, 220 p. 22 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  From the reviews  "Provides an excellent introduction for physicists interested in the statistical properties of financial markets. Appropriately early in the book the basic financial terms such as shorts, limit orders, puts, calls, and other terms are clearly defined. Examples, often with graphs, augment the reader???s understanding of what may be a plethora of new terms and ideas??? [This is] an excellent starting point for the physicist interested in the subject. Some of the book???s strongest features are its careful definitions, it detailed examples, and the connection it establishes to physical systems." PHYSICS TODAY, August 2002 "This book is excellent at illustrating the similarities of financial markets with other nonequilibrium physical systems. [...] In summary, a very good book that offers more than just qualitative comparisons of physics and finance." (www.quantnotes.com) This textbook describes parallels between statistical physics and finance  both those established in the 100yearlong interaction between these disciplines, as well as new research results on capital markets. The random walk, well known in physics, is also the basic model in finance, upon which are built, for example, the BlackScholes theory of option pricing and hedging, or methods of risk control using diversification. Here the underlying assumptions are discussed using empirical financial data and analogies to physical models such as fluid flows, turbulence, or superdiffusion. On this basis, new theories of derivative pricing and risk control can be formulated. Computer simulations of interacting agent models of financial markets provide insights into the origins of asset price fluctuations. Stock exchange crashes can be modelled in ways analogous to phase transitions and earthquakes. These models allow for predictions. This study edition has been updated with a presentation of several new and significant developments, e.g. the dynamics of volatility smiles and implied volatility surfaces, path integral approaches to option pricing, a new and accurate simulation scheme for options, multifractals, the application of nonextensive statistical mechanics to financial markets, and the minority game
