Title  Proceedings of the 2020 Conference of The Computational Social Science Society of the Americas 
Author(s)  Yang, Zining;von Briesen, Elizabeth 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  IX, 279 p. 131 illus., 123 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is comprised of the latest research into CSS methods, uses, and results, as presented at the 2020 annual conference of the Computational Social Science Society of the Americas (CSSSA). Computational social science (CSS) is the science that investigates social and behavioral dynamics through social simulation, social network analysis, and social media analysis. The CSSSA is a professional society that aims to advance the field of computational social science in all areas, including basic and applied orientations, by holding conferences and workshops, promoting standards of scientific excellence in research and teaching, and publishing research findings and results. The abovementioned conference was held virtually, October 8 ??? 11, 2020. What follows is a diverse representation of new results and approaches to using the tools of CSS and agentbased modeling (ABM) in exploring complex phenomena across many different domains. Readers will therefore not only have the results of these specific projects upon which to build, along with a wealth of casestudy examples that can serve as meaningful exemplars for new research projects and activities, they will also gain a greater appreciation for the broad scope of CSS

Title  Dynamically Coupled Rigid BodyFluid Flow Systems 
Author(s)  Shashikanth, Banavara N 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  X, 187 p. 34 illus., 9 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents a unified study of dynamically coupled systems involving a rigid body and an ideal fluid flow from the perspective of Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics. It compiles theoretical investigations on the topic of dynamically coupled systems using a framework grounded in Kirchhoff???s equations. The text achieves a balance between geometric mechanics, or the modern theories of reduction of Lagrangian and Hamiltonian systems, and classical fluid mechanics, with a special focus on the applications of these principles. Following an introduction to Kirchhoff???s equations of motion, the book discusses several extensions of Kirchhoff???s work, particularly related to vortices. It addresses the equations of motions of these systems and their Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations. The book is suitable to mathematicians, physicists and engineers with a background in Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics and theoretical fluid mechanics. It includes a brief introductory overview of geometric mechanics in the appendix

Title  Patterns of Synchrony in Complex Networks of Adaptively Coupled Oscillators 
Author(s)  Berner, Rico 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XVI, 203 p. 51 illus., 44 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The focus of this thesis is the interplay of synchrony and adaptivity in complex networks. Synchronization is a ubiquitous phenomenon observed in different contexts in physics, chemistry, biology, neuroscience, medicine, socioeconomic systems, and engineering. Most prominently, synchronization takes place in the brain, where it is associated with cognitive capacities like learning and memory, but is also a characteristic of neurological diseases like Parkinson and epilepsy. Adaptivity is common in many networks in nature and technology, where the connectivity changes in time, i.e., the strength of the coupling is continuously adjusted depending upon the dynamic state of the system, for instance synaptic neuronal plasticity in the brain. This research contributes to a fundamental understanding of various synchronization patterns, including hierarchical multifrequency clusters, chimeras and other partial synchronization states. After a concise survey of the fundamentals of adaptive and complex dynamical networks and synaptic plasticity, in the first part of the thesis the existence and stability of cluster synchronization in globally coupled adaptive networks is discussed for simple paradigmatic phase oscillators as well as for a more realistic neuronal oscillator model with spiketiming dependent plasticity. In the second part of the thesis the interplay of adaptivity and connectivity is investigated for more complex network structures like nonlocally coupled rings, random networks, and multilayer systems. Besides presenting a plethora of novel, sometimes intriguing patterns of synchrony, the thesis makes a number of pioneering methodological advances, where rigorous mathematical proofs are given in the Appendices. These results are of interest not only from a fundamental point of view, but also with respect to challenging applications in neuroscience and technological systems

Title  The Transition to Chaos : Conservative Classical and Quantum Systems 
Author(s)  Reichl, Linda 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XIV, 555 p. 176 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  The classical and quantum dynamics of conservative systems governs the behavior of much of the world around us  from the dynamics of galaxies to the vibration and electronic behavior of molecules and the dynamics of systems formed from or driven by laser radiation. Most conservative dynamical systems contain some degree of chaotic behavior, ranging from a selfsimilar mixture of regular and chaotic motion, to fully developed chaos. This chaotic behavior has a profound effect on the dynamics. This book combines mathematical rigor with examples that illuminate the dynamical theory of chaotic systems. The emphasis of the 3rd Edition is on topics of modern interest, including scattering systems formed from molecules and nanoscale quantum devices, quantum control and destabilization of systems driven by laser radiation, and thermalization of condensed matter systems. The book is written on a level accessible to graduate students and to the general research community

Title  Linear Dynamical Systems 
Author(s)  Grigoriu, Mircea D 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  IX, 153 p. 40 illus., 24 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook provides a concise, clear, and rigorous presentation of the dynamics of linear systems that delivers the necessary tools for the analysis and design of mechanical/ structural systems, regardless of their complexity. The book is written for senior undergraduate and first year graduate students as well as engineers working on the design of mechanical/structural systems subjected to dynamic actions, such as wind/earthquake engineers and mechanical engineers working on wind turbines. Professor Grigoriu's lucid presentation maximizes student understanding of the formulation and the solution of linear systems subjected to dynamic actions, and provides a clear distinction between problems of practical interest and their special cases. Based on the author's lecture notes from courses taught at Cornell University, the material is classtested over many years and ideal as a core text for a range of classes in mechanical, civil, and geotechnical engineering, as well as for selfdirected learning by practitioners in the field. Follows a coherent introduction of topics from the physics, constitutive equations, and general formulations and solutions of problems of practical interest through special cases of these problems obtained by specializing general results Adopts a topdown approach enabling a compact book that covers all relevant topics on the dynamics of linear systems, where special cases of problems of practical interest cannot be interpreted as new problems which require different solutions Reinforces readers' grasp of theoretical considerations with numerical illustrations Includes less familiar mathematical tools used in some derivations in appendices Treats solution of finite dimensional/continuous systems as elements of the vector spaces spanned by the eigenvectors/eigenfunctions corresponding to the system mechanical properties

Title  Nonlinear Dynamics, Chaos, and Complexity : In Memory of Professor Valentin Afraimovich 
Author(s)  Volchenkov, Dimitri 
Publication  Singapore, Springer Nature Singapore, 2021. 
Description  VIII, 198 p. 66 illus., 23 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book demonstrates how mathematical methods and techniques can be used in synergy and create a new way of looking at complex systems. It becomes clear nowadays that the standard (graphbased) network approach, in which observable events and transportation hubs are represented by nodes and relations between them are represented by edges, fails to describe the important properties of complex systems, capture the dependence between their scales, and anticipate their future developments. Therefore, authors in this book discuss the new generalized theories capable to describe a complex nexus of dependences in multilevel complex systems and to effectively engineer their important functions. The collection of works devoted to the memory of Professor Valentin Afraimovich introduces new concepts, methods, and applications in nonlinear dynamical systems covering physical problems and mathematical modelling relevant to molecular biology, genetics, neurosciences, artificial intelligence as well as classic problems in physics, machine learning, brain and urban dynamics. The book can be read by mathematicians, physicists, complex systems scientists, IT specialists, civil engineers, data scientists, urban planners, and even musicians (with some mathematical background).

Title  Modelling Protocells : The Emergent Synchronization of Reproduction and Molecular Replication 
Author(s)  Serra, Roberto;Villani, Marco 
Publication  Dordrecht, 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
