Title  The Planiverse : Computer Contact with a TwoDimensional World 
Author(s)  Dewdney, A.K 
Publication  New York, NY, 1. Imprint: Copernicus
2. Springer New York, 2000. 
Description  XXXI, 247 p. 2 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  When The Planiverse ?rst appeared 16 years ago, it caught more than a few readers off guard. The line between willing suspension of dis lief and innocent acceptance, if it exists at all, is a thin one. There were those who wanted to believe, despite the tongueincheek subtext, that we had made contact with a twodimensional world called Arde, a di shaped planet embedded in the skin of a vast, balloonshaped space called the planiverse. It is tempting to imagine that those who believed, as well as those who suspended disbelief, did so because of a persuasive consistency in the cosmology and physics of this in?nitesimally thin universe, and x preface to the millennium edition in its bizarre but oddly workable organisms. This was not just your r ofthemill universe fashioned out of the whole cloth of wishdriven imagination. The planiverse is a weirder place than that precisely  cause so much of it was ???worked out??? by a virtual team of scientists and technologists. Reality, even the pseudoreality of such a place, is  variably stranger than anything we merely dream up

Title  Complex Systems 
Author(s)  Goles, E;Mart??nez, Servet 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2001. 
Description  VIII, 301 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This volume contains the courses given at the Sixth Summer School on Complex Systems held at Facultad de Ciencias Fisicas y Maternaticas, Universidad de Chile at Santiago, Chile, from 14th to 18th December 1998. This school was addressed to graduate students and researchers working on areas related with recent trends in Complex Systems, including dynamical systems, cellular automata, complexity and cutoff in Markov chains. Each contribution is devoted to one of these subjects. In some cases they are structured as surveys, presenting at the same time an original point of view and showing mostly new results. The paper of Pierre Arnoux investigates the relation between low complex systems and chaotic systems, showing that they can be put into relation by some re?? normalization operations. The case of quasicrystals is fully studied, in particular the Sturmian quasicrystals. The paper of Franco Bagnoli and Raul Rechtman establishes relations be?? tween Lyapunov exponents and synchronization processes in cellular automata. The principal goal is to associate tools, usually used in physical problems, to an important problem in cellularautomata and computer science, the synchronization problem. The paper of Jacques Demongeot and colleagues gives a presentation of at?? tractors of dynamical systems appearing in biological situations. For instance, the relation between positive or negative loops and regulation systems

Author(s)  Diosi, Lajos 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2007. 
Description  XII, 128 p. 9 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This short and concise primer takes the vantage point of theoretical physics and the unity of physics. It sets out to strip the burgeoning field of quantum information science to its basics by linking it to universal concepts in physics. An extensive lecture rather than a comprehensive textbook, this volume is based on courses delivered over several years to advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students, but essentially it addresses anyone with a working knowledge of basic quantum physics. Readers will find these lectures a most adequate entry point for theoretical studies in this field

Title  Turbulence Nature and the Inverse Problem 
Author(s)  Pyatnitsky, L. N 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2009. 
Description  XVI, 197 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Hydrodynamic equations well describe averaged parameters of turbulent steady flows, at least in pipes where boundary conditions can be estimated. The equations might outline the parameters fluctuations as well, if entry conditions at current boundaries were known. This raises, in addition, the more comprehensive problem of the primary perturbation nature, noted by H.A. Lorentz, which still remains unsolved. Generally, any flow steadiness should be supported by pressure waves emitted by some external source, e.g. a piston or a receiver. The wave plane front in channels quickly takes convex configuration owing to Rayleigh's law of diffraction divergence. The Schlieren technique and pressure wave registration were employed to investigate the wave interaction with boundary layer, while reflecting from the channel wall. The reflection induces boundarylayer local separation and following pressure rapid increase within the perturbation zone. It propagates as an acoustic wave packet of spherical shape, bearing oscillations of hydrodynamic parameters. Superposition of such packets forms a spatiotemporal field of oscillations fading as 1/r. This implies a mechanism of the turbulence. Vorticity existing in the boundary layer does not penetrate in itself into potential main stream. But the wave leaving the boundary layer carries away some part of fluid along with frozenin vorticity. The vorticity eddies form another field of oscillations fading as 1/r2. This implies a second mechanism of turbulence. Thereupon the oscillation spatiotemporal field and its randomization development are easy computed. Also, normal burning transition into detonation is explained, and the turbulence inverse problem is set and solved as applied to plasma channels created by laser Besselian beams

Title  The Universe as Automaton : From Simplicity and Symmetry to Complexity 
Author(s)  Mainzer, Klaus;Chua, Leon 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2012. 
Description  VIII, 108 p. 30 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This booklet is an essay at the interface of philosophy and complexity research, trying to inspire the reader with new ideas and new conceptual developments of cellular automata.?? Going beyond the numerical experiments of Steven Wolfram, it is argued that cellular automata must be considered complex dynamical systems in their own right, requiring appropriate analytical models in order to find precise answers and predictions in the universe of cellular automata.?? Indeed, eventually we have to ask whether cellular automata can be considered models of the real world and, conversely, whether there are limits to our modern approach of attributing the world, and the universe for that matter, essentially a digital reality

Author(s)  Diosi, Lajos 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2011. 
Description  XV, 161 p. 23 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This short and concise primer takes the vantage point of theoretical physics and the unity of physics. It sets out to strip the burgeoning field of quantum information science to its basics by linking it to universal concepts in physics. An extensive lecture rather than a comprehensive textbook, this volume is based on courses delivered over several years to advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students, but essentially it addresses anyone with a working knowledge of basic quantum physics. Readers will find these lectures a most adequate entry point for theoretical studies in this field. For the second edition, the authors has succeeded in adding many new topics while sticking to the conciseness of the overall approach. A new chapter on qubit thermodynamics has been added, while new sections and subsections have been incorporated in various chapter to deal with weak and timecontinuous measurements, periodfinding quantum algorithms and quantum error corrections. From the reviews of the first edition: "The best things about this book are its brevity and clarity. In around 100 pages it provides a tutorial introduction to quantum information theory, including problems and solutions. ??? it???s worth a look if you want to quickly get up to speed with the language and central concepts of quantum information theory, including the background classical information theory."

Title  Quantum Walks and Search Algorithms 
Author(s)  Portugal, Renato 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer New York, 2013. 
Description  XI, 222 p. 37 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book addresses an interesting area of quantum computation called quantum walks, which play an important role in building quantum algorithms, in particular search algorithms. Quantum walks are the quantum analogue of classical random walks. It is known that quantum computers have great power for searching unsorted databases. This power extends to many kinds of searches, particularly to the problem of finding a specific location in a spatial layout, which can be modeled by a graph. The goal is to find a specific node knowing that the particle uses the edges to jump from one node to the next. This book is selfcontained with main topics that include: Grover's algorithm, describing its geometrical interpretation and evolution by means of the spectral decomposition of the evolution operater Analytical solutions of quantum walks on important graphs like line, cycles, twodimensional lattices, and hypercubes using Fourier transforms Quantum walks on generic graphs, describing methods to calculate the limiting distribution and mixing time Spatial search algorithms, with emphasis on the abstract search algorithm (the twodimensional lattice is used as an example) Szedgedy's quantumwalk model and a natural definition of quantum hitting time (the complete graph is used as an example) The reader will benefit from the pedagogical aspects of the book, learning faster and with more ease than would be possible from the primary research literature. Exercises and references further deepen the reader's understanding, and guidelines for the use of computer programs to simulate the evolution of quantum walks are also provided
