Title  An Introduction to Complex Systems : Society, Ecology, and Nonlinear Dynamics 
Author(s)  Fieguth, Paul 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XIV, 463 p. 266 illus., 247 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Complex Systems lie at the heart of a variety of largescale phenomena of great significance  global warming, ice ages, water, poverty, pandemics  and this text uses these case studies as motivations and contexts to explore complex systems and related topics of nonlinear dynamics and powerlaw statistics. Although 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 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 students in technical domains such as engineering, computer science, physics, mathematics, and environmental studies. This second edition adds nine new examples, over 30 additional problems, 50 additional figures, and three new chapters offering a detailed study of system decoupling, extensive solutions to chapter problems, and a timely discussion on the complex systems challenges associated with COVID19 and pandemics in general

Title  Magnetohydrodynamics and Fluid Dynamics: Action Principles and Conservation Laws 
Author(s)  Webb, Gary 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XIV, 301 p. 22 illus., 16 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This text focuses on conservation laws in magnetohydrodynamics, gasdynamics and hydrodynamics. A grasp of new conservation laws is essential in fusion and space plasmas, as well as in geophysical fluid dynamics; they can be used to test numerical codes, or to reveal new aspects of the underlying physics, e.g., by identifying the time history of the fluid elements as an important key to understanding fluid vorticity or in investigating the stability of steady flows. The ten Galilean Lie point symmetries of the fundamental action discussed in this book give rise to the conservation of energy, momentum, angular momentum and center of mass conservation laws via Noether???s first theorem. The advected invariants are related to fluid relabeling symmetries ??? socalled diffeomorphisms associated with the Lagrangian map ??? and are obtained by applying the EulerPoincare approach to Noether???s second theorem. The book discusses several variants of helicity including kinetic helicity, cross helicity, magnetic helicity, Ertels??? theorem and potential vorticity, the Hollman invariant, and the Godbillon Vey invariant. The book develops the noncanonical Hamiltonian approach to MHD using the noncanonical Poisson bracket, while also refining the multisymplectic approach to ideal MHD and obtaining novel nonlocal conservation laws. It also briefly discusses Anco and Bluman???s direct method for deriving conservation laws. A range of examples is used to illustrate topological invariants in MHD and fluid dynamics, including the Hopf invariant, the Calugareanu invariant, the Taylor magnetic helicity reconnection hypothesis for magnetic fields in highly conducting plasmas, and the magnetic helicity of Alfv??n simple waves, MHD topological solitons, and the Parker Archimedean spiral magnetic field. The Lagrangian map is used to obtain a class of solutions for incompressible MHD. The AharonovBohm interpretation of magnetic helicity and cross helicity is discussed. In closing, examples of magnetosonic Nwaves are used to illustrate the role of the wave number and group velocity concepts for MHD waves. This selfcontained and pedagogical guide to the fundamentals will benefit postgraduatelevel newcomers and seasoned researchers alike

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  Asymptotic Modelling of Fluid Flow Phenomena 
Author(s)  Zeytounian, Radyadour Kh 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2002. 
Description  XVIII, 550 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  for the fluctuations around the means but rather fluctuations, and appearing in the following incompressible system of equations: on any wall; at initial time, and are assumed known. This contribution arose from discussion with J. P. Guiraud on attempts to push forward our last cosigned paper (1986) and the main idea is to put a stochastic structure on fluctuations and to identify the large eddies with a part of the probability space. The Reynolds stresses are derived from a kind of MonteCarlo process on equations for fluctuations. Those are themselves modelled against a technique, using the Guiraud and Zeytounian (1986). The scheme consists in a set of like equations, considered as random, because they mimic the large eddy fluctuations. The Reynolds stresses are got from stochastic averaging over a family of their solutions. Asymptotics underlies the scheme, but in a rather loose hidden way. We explain this in relation with homogenizati localization processes (described within the ??3. 4 ofChapter 3). Ofcourse the mathematical well posedness of the scheme is not known and the numerics would be formidable! Whether this attempt will inspire researchers in the field of highly complex turbulent flows is not foreseeable and we have hope that the idea will prove useful

Title  Sedimentation and Sediment Transport : Proceedings of the Symposium held in Monte Verit??, Switzerland, from September 2nd ??? to September 6th, 2002 
Author(s)  Gyr, A;Kinzelbach, Wolfgang 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2003. 
Description  X, 271 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  It is evident, that for a number of ecological and technical problems in rivers and lakes a better knowledge of sediment transport and sedimentation is needed together with the ability to predict and simulate sediment behaviour. On the other hand, a stagnation of research in these topics could be observed in the last decades. At the Symposium an attempt was made to present new results in mathematics and natural sciences relevant for the sediment problem. New strategies were discussed to tackle the complexity of the problem. Basic theoretical research and laboratory experiments alone are incomplete without a feedback from field observations and measurements. For that reason wellknown researchers from both basic and engineering sciences were invited. Turbulence, nonlocal phenomena, stability, interaction, feedback systems, selforganization, twophase flow and chaotic processes, numerical simulations as well as measurement techniques and field results were the keywords of the Symposium. This proceedings are a good source for those interested in the state of the art

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  Transport and Mixing in Geophysical Flows 
Author(s)  Weiss, Jeffrey B;Provenzale, Antonello 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2008. 
Description  IX, 262 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This volume collects a number of theoretical and experimental lectures on various aspects of transport and mixing of active and passive particles in geophysical flows. Transports in fluids can be approached from two complementary perspectives: in the Eulerian view of mixing, the focus is on the concentration field  advection stetches and folds the concentration field and sharpens the gradients, while diffusion smoothes the field. In the Langrangian view, fluid parcels are followed around as they move with the flow, experiencing chaotic or stochastic motion. Both pictures are considered in the present lectures, with passive particles carried freely by the flow and reactive particles, where chemically or biologically induced reactions change the character of the particles

Title  Fronts, Waves and Vortices in Geophysical Flows 
Author(s)  Flor, JanBert 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2010. 
Description  IX, 192 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Most well known structures in planetary atmospheres and the Earth???s oceans are jets or fronts interacting with vortices on a wide range of scales. The transition from one state to another, such as in unbalanced or adjustment flows, involves the generation of waves as well as the interaction of coherent structures with these waves. This book presents a fluid mechanics perspective to the dynamics of fronts and vortices and their interaction with waves in geophysical flows. It provides a basic physical background for modeling coherent structures in a geophysical context, and it gives essential information on advanced topics such as spontaneous wave emission and wavemomentum transfer in geophysical flows. Based on a set of lectures by leading specialists, this text is targeted at graduate students, researchers and engineers in geophysics and environmental fluid mechanics

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
