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  The Foundations of Chaos Revisited: From Poincar?? to Recent Advancements 
Author(s)  Skiadas, Christos 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIV, 261 p. 93 illus., 54 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  With contributions from a number of pioneering researchers in the field, this collection is aimed not only at researchers and scientists in nonlinear dynamics but also at a broader audience interested in understanding and exploring how modern chaos theory has developed since the days of Poincar??. This book was motivated by and is an outcome of the CHAOS 2015 meeting held at the Henri Poincar?? Institute in Paris, which provided a perfect opportunity to gain inspiration and discuss new perspectives on the history, development and modern aspects of chaos theory. Henri Poincar?? is remembered as a great mind in mathematics, physics and astronomy. His works, well beyond their rigorous mathematical and analytical style, are known for their deep insights into science and research in general, and the philosophy of science in particular. The Poincar?? conjecture (only proved in 2006) along with his work on the threebody problem are considered to be the foundation of modern chaos theory

Title  Molecular Symmetry, SuperRotation, and Semiclassical Motion : New Ideas for Solving Old Problems 
Author(s)  Schmiedt, Hanno 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  IX, 171 p. 29 illus., 25 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents a range of fundamentally new approaches to solving problems involving traditional molecular models. Fundamental molecular symmetry is shown to open new avenues for describing molecular dynamics beyond standard perturbation techniques. Traditional concepts used to describe molecular dynamics are based on a few fundamental assumptions, the ballandstick picture of molecular structure and the respective perturbative treatment of different kinds of couplings between otherwise separate motions.?? The book points out the conceptual limits of these models and, by focusing on the most essential idea of theoretical physics, namely symmetry, shows how to overcome those limits by introducing fundamentally new concepts. The book begins with an introduction to molecular symmetry in general, followed by a discussion of nuclear spin symmetry. Here, a new correlation between identical particle exchange and spin angular momentum symmetry of nuclei is exhibited. The central part of the book is the discussion of extremely floppy molecules, which are not describable in the framework of traditional theories. The book introduces a fundamentally new approach to describing the molecular dynamics of these molecules  the superrotor model, which is based on a fivedimensional symmetry that has never been observed in molecules before. By applying the superrotor theory to the prototype of floppy molecules, protonated methane, this model can consistently predict the symmetry and energy of lowenergy states, which were characterized experimentally only a few years ago. The theoretical predictions agree with the experimental results, which makes the prospect of further developing the superrotor theory and applying it to other molecules a promising one. In the final section, the book also covers the topic of ultrafast rotations, where usual quantum calculations reach their natural limits. A semiclassical method for determining rotational energies, developed in the early 1990s, is shown to be attachable to quantum calculations of the vibrational states. This new combined method is suitable for efficiently calculating rovibrational energies, even for molecular states with large angular momentum.??

Title  Understanding Acoustics : An Experimentalist???s View of Acoustics and Vibration 
Author(s)  Garrett, Steven L 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XXXI, 896 p. 401 illus., 81 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook provides a unified approach to acoustics and vibration suitable for use in advanced undergraduate and firstyear graduate courses on vibration and fluids. The book includes thorough treatment of vibration of harmonic oscillators, coupled oscillators, isotropic elasticity, and waves in solids including the use of resonance techniques for determination of elastic moduli. Drawing on 35 years of experience teaching introductory graduate acoustics at the Naval Postgraduate School and Penn State, the author presents a hydrodynamic approach to the acoustics of sound in fluids that provides a uniform methodology for analysis of lumpedelement systems and wave propagation that can incorporate attenuation mechanisms and complex media. This view provides a consistent and reliable approach that can be extended with confidence to more complex fluids and future applications. Understanding Acoustics opens with a mathematical introduction that includes graphing and statistical uncertainty, followed by five chapters on vibration and elastic waves that provide important results and highlight modern applications while introducing analytical techniques that are revisited in the study of waves in fluids covered in Part II. A unified approach to waves in fluids (i.e., liquids and gases) is based on a mastery of the hydrodynamic equations. Part III demonstrates extensions of this view to nonlinear acoustics. Engaging and practical, this book is a mustread for graduate students in acoustics and vibration as well as active researchers interested in a novel approach to the material. Provides graduatelevel treatment of acoustics and vibration suitable for use in courses and for selfguided study Highlights fundamental physical principles that can provide independent tests of the validity of numerical solutions and computer simulations Demonstrates use of approximation techniques that greatly simplify the mathematics without substantial decrease in accuracy Includes endofchapter problems and "Talk like an Acoustician" boxes to highlight key terms introduced in the text

Title  Controlling Synchronization Patterns in Complex Networks 
Author(s)  Lehnert, Judith 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XV, 203 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This research aims to achieve a fundamental understanding of synchronization and its interplay with the topology of complex networks. Synchronization is a ubiquitous phenomenon observed in different contexts in physics, chemistry, biology, medicine and engineering. Most prominently, synchronization takes place in the brain, where it is associated with several cognitive capacities but is  in abundance  a characteristic of neurological diseases. Besides zerolag synchrony, group and cluster states are considered, enabling a description and study of complex synchronization patterns within the presented theory. Adaptive control methods are developed, which allow the control of synchronization in scenarios where parameters drift or are unknown. These methods are, therefore, of particular interest for experimental setups or technological applications. The theoretical framework is demonstrated on generic models, coupled chemical oscillators and several detailed examples of neural networks
