Title  Modelling Protocells : The Emergent Synchronization of Reproduction and Molecular Replication 
Author(s)  Serra, Roberto;Villani, Marco 
Publication  Dordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Netherlands, 2017. 
Description  XV, 182 p. 46 illus., 33 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The monograph discusses models of synthetic protocells, which are celllike structures obtained from nonliving matter endowed with some rudimentary kind of metabolism and genetics, but much simpler than biological cells. They should grow and proliferate, generating offsprings that resemble in some way the parent protocells with some variation, so that selection may take place. Sustainable protocell populations have not yet been obtained experimentally and mathematical models are therefore extremely important to address key questions concerning their synthesis and behavior. Different protocell ???architectures??? have been proposed and highlevel abstract models like those that are presented in this book are particularly relevant to gain a better understanding of the different properites. These models are able to treat all the major dynamical phenomena in a unified framework, so they can be seen as ???virtual laboratories??? for protocell research. Particular attention is paid to the problem of synchronization of the fission rate of the whole protocell and the duplication rate of its "protogenetic" material, which is shown to be an emergent property that spontaneously develops in successive generations. The book is of interest for a broad range of scientists working in soft matter physics, chemistry and biology, interested in the role protocells may play on the development of new technologies with medical, environmental and industrial applications as well as scientists interested in the origin of life

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  Kinetic Theory of Nonequilibrium Ensembles, Irreversible Thermodynamics, and Generalized Hydrodynamics : Volume 2. Relativistic Theories 
Author(s)  Eu, Byung Chan 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  IX, 201 p. 1 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents the fundamentals of irreversible thermodynamics for nonlinear transport processes in gases and liquids, as well as for generalized hydrodynamics extending the classical hydrodynamics of Navier, Stokes, Fourier, and Fick. Together with its companion volume on nonrelativistic contexts, it provides a comprehensive picture of the relativistic covariant kinetic theory of gases and relativistic hydrodynamics of gases.Relativistic theories of macroscopic irreversible processes must strictly conform to the thermodynamic laws at every step and in all approximations that enter their derivation from the mechanical principles. Upholding this as the inviolable tenet, the author develops theories of irreversible transport processes in fluids (gases or liquids). They apply regardless of whether the processes are near to or far removed from equilibrium, or whether they are linear or nonlinear with respect to macroscopic fluxes or thermodynamic forces. The irreversible covariant Boltzmann as well as the covariant form of the BoltzmannNordheimUehlingUhlenbeck equation is used for deriving theories of irreversible transport equations and generalized hydrodynamic equations for either classical gases or quantum gases. They all conform rigorously to the tenet. All macroscopic observables described by the soformulated theories therefore are likewise expected to strictly obey the tenet

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  Applications of Systems Thinking and Soft Operations Research in Managing Complexity : From Problem Framing to Problem Solving 
Author(s)  Masys, Anthony J 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  VIII, 322 p. 77 illus., 61 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book captures current trends and developments in the field of systems thinking and soft operations research which can be applied to solve today's??problems of dynamic complexity and interdependency. Such ???wicked problems??? and messes are seemingly intractable problems characterized as valueladen, ambiguous, and unstable, that resist being tamed by classical problem solving. Actions and interventions associated with this complex problem space can have highly unpredictable and unintended consequences. Examples of such complex problems include health care reform, global climate change, transnational serious and organized crime, terrorism, homeland security, human security, disaster management, and humanitarian aid. Moving towards the development of solutions to these complex problem spaces depends on the lens we use to examine them and how we frame the problem. It will be shown that systems thinking and soft operations research has had great success in contributing to the management of complexity.??

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.
