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  Survival under Uncertainty : An Introduction to Probability Models of Social Structure and Evolution 
Author(s)  Volchenkov, Dimitri 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIV, 238 p. 55 illus., 44 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book introduces and studies a number of stochastic models of subsistence, communication, social evolution and political transition that will allow the reader to grasp the role of uncertainty as a fundamental property of our irreversible world. At the same time, it aims to bring about a more interdisciplinary and quantitative approach across very diverse fields of research in the humanities and social sciences. Through the examples treated in this work ??? including anthropology, demography, migration, geopolitics, management, and bioecology, among other things ??? evidence is gathered to show that volatile environments may change the rules of the evolutionary selection and dynamics of any social system, creating a situation of adaptive uncertainty, in particular, whenever the rate of change of the environment exceeds the rate of adaptation. Last but not least, it is hoped that this book will contribute to the understanding that inherent randomness can also be a great opportunity ??? for social systems and individuals alike ??? to help face the challenge of ???survival under uncertainty???

Title  An Introduction to Complex Systems : Society, Ecology, and Nonlinear Dynamics 
Author(s)  Fieguth, Paul 
Publication  Cham, 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  Interconnected Networks 
Author(s)  Garas, Antonios 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XVI, 229 p. 75 illus., 63 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This volume provides an introduction to and overview of the emerging field of interconnected networks which include multi layer or multiplex networks, as well as networks of networks. Such networks present structural and dynamical features quite different from those observed in isolated networks. The presence of links between different networks or layers of a network typically alters the way such interconnected networks behave ??? understanding the role of interconnecting links is therefore a crucial step towards a more accurate description of realworld systems. While examples of such dissimilar properties are becoming more abundant ??? for example regarding diffusion, robustness and competition ??? the root of such differences remains to be elucidated. Each chapter in this topical collection is selfcontained and can be read on its own, thus making it also suitable as reference for experienced researchers wishing to focus on a particular topic

Title  Nonlinear Resonances 
Author(s)  Rajasekar, Shanmuganathan;Sanjuan, Miguel A. F 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XVII, 409 p. 242 illus., 226 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This introductory text presents the basic aspects and most important features of various types of resonances and antiresonances in dynamical systems. In particular, for each resonance, it covers the theoretical concepts, illustrates them with case studies, and reviews the available information on mechanisms, characterization, numerical simulations, experimental realizations, possible quantum analogues, applications and significant advances made over the years. Resonances are one of the most fundamental phenomena exhibited by nonlinear systems and refer to specific realizations of maximum response of a system due to the ability of that system to store and transfer energy received from an external forcing source. Resonances are of particular importance in physical, engineering and biological systems  they can prove to be advantageous in many applications, while leading to instability and even disasters in others. The book is selfcontained, providing the details of mathematical derivations and techniques involved in numerical simulations. Though primarily intended for graduate students, it can also be considered a reference book for any researcher interested in the dynamics of resonant phenomena

Title  NetworkOriented Modeling : Addressing Complexity of Cognitive, Affective and Social Interactions 
Author(s)  Treur, Jan 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XVI, 499 p. 134 illus., 52 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents a new approach that can be applied to complex, integrated individual and social human processes. It provides an alternative means of addressing complexity, better suited for its purpose than and effectively complementing traditional strategies involving isolation and separation assumptions. Networkoriented modeling allows highlevel cognitive, affective and social models in the form of (cyclic) graphs to be constructed, which can be automatically transformed into executable simulation models. The modeling format used makes it easy to take into account theories and findings about complex cognitive and social processes, which often involve dynamics based on interrelating cycles. Accordingly, it makes it possible to address complex phenomena such as the integration of emotions within cognitive processes of all kinds, of internal simulations of the mental processes of others, and of social phenomena such as shared understandings and collective actions. A variety of sample models ??? including those for ownership of actions, fear and dreaming, the integration of emotions in joint decisionmaking based on empathic understanding, and evolving social networks ??? illustrate the potential of the approach. Dedicated software is available to support building models in a conceptual or graphical manner, transforming them into an executable format and performing simulation experiments. The majority of the material presented has been used and positively evaluated by undergraduate and graduate students and researchers in the cognitive, social and AI domains. Given its detailed coverage, the book is ideally suited as an introduction for graduate and undergraduate students in many different multidisciplinary fields involving cognitive, affective, social, biological, and neuroscience domains

Title  Recurrence Plots and Their Quantifications: Expanding Horizons : Proceedings of the 6th International Symposium on Recurrence Plots, Grenoble, France, 1719 June 2015 
Author(s)  Webber, Jr., Charles L;Ioana, Cornel;Marwan, Norbert 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XXII, 380 p. 207 illus., 158 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The chapters in this book originate from the research work and contributions presented at the Sixth International Symposium on Recurrence Plots held in Grenoble, France in June 2015. Scientists from numerous disciplines gathered to exchange knowledge on recent applications and developments in recurrence plots and recurrence quantification analysis. This meeting was remarkable because of the obvious expansion of recurrence strategies (theory) and applications (practice) into everbroadening fields of science. It discusses realworld systems from various fields, including mathematics, strange attractors, applied physics, physiology, medicine, environmental and earth sciences, as well as psychology and linguistics. Even readers not actively researching any of these particular systems will benefit from discovering how other scientists are finding practical nonlinear solutions to specific problems. The book is of interest to an interdisciplinary audience of recurrence plot users and researchers interested in time series analysis in particular, and in complex systems in general

Title  Chaos: Concepts, Control and Constructive Use 
Author(s)  Bolotin, Yurii;Tur, Anatoli;Yanovsky, Vladimir 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XI, 281 p. 119 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book offers a short and concise introduction to the many facets of chaos theory. While the study of chaotic behavior in nonlinear, dynamical systems is a wellestablished research field with ramifications in all areas of science, there is a lot to be learnt about how chaos can be controlled and, under appropriate conditions, can actually be constructive in the sense of becoming a control parameter for the system under investigation, stochastic resonance being a prime example. The present work stresses the latter aspects and, after recalling the paradigm changes introduced by the concept of chaos, leads the reader skillfully through the basics of chaos control by detailing the relevant algorithms for both Hamiltonian and dissipative systems, among others. The main part of the book is then devoted to the issue of synchronization in chaotic systems, an introduction to stochastic resonance, and a survey of ratchet models. In this second, revised and enlarged edition, two more chapters explore the many interfaces of quantum physics and dynamical systems, examining in turn statistical properties of energy spectra, quantum ratchets, and dynamical tunneling, among others. This text is particularly suitable for nonspecialist scientists, engineers, and applied mathematical scientists from related areas, wishing to enter the field quickly and efficiently. From the reviews of the first edition: This book is an excellent introduction to the key concepts and control of chaos in (random) dynamical systems [...] The authors find an outstanding balance between main physical ideas and mathematical terminology to reach their audience in an impressive and lucid manner. This book is ideal for anybody who would like to grasp quickly the main issues related to chaos in discrete and continuous time. Henri Schurz, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1178, 2010

Title  Complex Networks VIII : Proceedings of the 8th Conference on Complex Networks CompleNet 2017 
Author(s)  Gon??alves, Bruno;Menezes, Ronaldo;Sinatra, Roberta;Zlatic, Vinko 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XIV, 262 p. 88 illus., 75 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book collects the works presented at the 8th International Conference on Complex Networks (CompleNet) 2017 in Dubrovnik, Croatia, on March 2124, 2017. CompleNet aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners working in areas related to complex networks. The past two decades has witnessed an exponential increase in the number of publications within this field. From biological systems to computer science, from economic to social systems, complex networks are becoming pervasive in many fields of science. It is this interdisciplinary nature of complex networks that CompleNet aims at addressing. The last decades have seen the emergence of complex networks as the language with which a wide range of complex phenomena in fields as diverse as physics, computer science, and medicine (to name a few) can be properly described and understood. This book provides a view of the stateoftheart in this dynamic field and covers topics such as network controllability, social structure, online behavior, recommendation systems, and network structure
