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  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  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  From Newton to Mandelbrot : A Primer in Theoretical Physics 
Author(s)  Stauffer, Dietrich;Stanley, H. Eugene;Lesne, Annick 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2017. 
Description  XIV, 270 p. 84 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook takes the reader on a tour of the most important landmarks of theoretical physics: classical, quantum, and statistical mechanics, relativity, electrodynamics, as well as the most modern and exciting of all: elementary particles and the physics of fractals. The second edition has been supplemented with a new chapter devoted to concise though complete presentation of dynamical systems, bifurcations and chaos theory. The treatment is confined to the essentials of each area, presenting all the central concepts and equations at an accessible level. Chapters 1 to 4 contain the standard material of courses in theoretical physics and are supposed to accompany lectures at the university; thus they are rather condensed. They are supposed to fill one year of teaching. Chapters 5 and 6, in contrast, are written less condensed since this material may not be part of standard lectures and thus could be studied without the help of a university teacher. An appendix on elementary particles lies somewhere in between: It could be a summary of a much more detailed course, or studied without such a course. Illustrations and numerous problems round off this unusual textbook. It will ideally accompany the students all along their course in theoretical physics and prove indispensable in preparing and revising the exams. It is also suited as a reference for teachers or scientists from other disciplines who are interested in the topic

Title  Bohmian Mechanics, Open Quantum Systems and Continuous Measurements 
Author(s)  Nassar, Antonio B;MiretArt??s, Salvador 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVII, 241 p. 19 illus., 12 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book shows how Bohmian mechanics overcomes the need for a measurement postulate involving wave function collapse.????The measuring process plays a very important role in quantum mechanics. It has been??widely analyzed within??the Copenhagen approach through the Born and von Neumann postulates, with later extension due to L??ders.??In contrast, much less effort has been??invested in the measurement theory within the Bohmian mechanics framework. The continuous measurement (sharp and fuzzy, or strong and weak) problem is considered here??in this framework. The authors begin??by??generalizing the socalled Mensky approach, which is based on restricted path integral through quantum corridors. The measuring system is then considered to be an open quantum system following a stochastic Schr??dinger equation. Quantum stochastic trajectories (in the Bohmian sense)??and their role in??basic quantum processes are discussed in detail. The decoherence process is thereby described in terms of classical trajectories issuing from the violation of the noncrossing rule of quantum trajectories

Title  Ensembles on Configuration Space : Classical, Quantum, and Beyond 
Author(s)  Hall, Michael J. W;Reginatto, Marcel 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIV, 280 p. 3 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book describes a promising approach to problems in the foundations of quantum mechanics, including the measurement problem. The dynamics of ensembles on configuration space is shown here to be a valuable tool for unifying the formalisms of classical and quantum mechanics, for deriving and extending the latter in various ways, and for addressing the quantum measurement problem. A description of physical systems by means of ensembles on configuration space can be introduced at a very fundamental level: the basic building blocks are a configuration space, probabilities, and Hamiltonian equations of motion for the probabilities. The formalism can describe both classical and quantum systems, and their thermodynamics, with the main difference being the choice of ensemble Hamiltonian. Furthermore, there is a natural way of introducing ensemble Hamiltonians that describe the evolution of hybrid systems; i.e., interacting systems that have distinct classical and quantum sectors, allowing for consistent descriptions of quantum systems interacting with classical measurement devices and quantum matter fields interacting gravitationally with a classical spacetime
