# Bifurcations: Sights, Sounds, and Mathematics by Takashi Matsumoto, Motomasa Komuro, Hiroshi Kokubu, Ryuji

By Takashi Matsumoto, Motomasa Komuro, Hiroshi Kokubu, Ryuji Tokunaga

Bifurcation initially intended "splitting into elements. " specifically, a approach lower than­ is going a bifurcation while there's a qualitative switch within the habit of the sys­ tem. Bifurcation within the context of dynamical platforms, the place the time evolution of structures are concerned, has been the topic of study for lots of scientists and engineers for the previous hundred years just because bifurcations are fascinating. a great approach of realizing bifurcations will be to work out them first and examine theories moment. in a different way will be to first understand the elemental recommendations and theories after which see what they seem like. In any occasion, you should either notice experiments and comprehend the theories of bifurcations. This booklet makes an attempt to supply a basic viewers with either avenues towards realizing bifurcations. in particular, (1) a number of concrete experimental effects acquired from digital circuits are given in bankruptcy 1. all of the circuits are extremely simple, that's the most important in any test. The circuits, although, shouldn't be too easy, another way not anything attention-grabbing can take place. Albert Einstein as soon as stated "as easy as pos­ sible, yet not more" . one of many significant purposes for the circuits mentioned being easy is because of their piecewise-linear features. specifically, the voltage­ present relationships are composed of numerous line segments that are effortless to construct. Piecewise-linearity additionally simplifies rigorous research in a drastic guy­ ner. (2) The piecewise-linearity of the circuits has a ways attaining consequences.

Synergetics: an introduction

This e-book is an often-requested reprint of 2 vintage texts through H. Haken: "Synergetics. An creation" and "Advanced Synergetics". Synergetics, an interdisciplinary examine software initiated through H. Haken in 1969, offers with the systematic and methodological method of the speedily transforming into box of complexity.

Robust Design: A Repertoire of Biological, Ecological, and Engineering Case Studies (Santa Fe Institute Studies on the Sciences of Complexity)

Powerful layout brings jointly sixteen chapters through an eminent workforce of authors in quite a lot of fields proposing features of robustness in organic, ecological, and computational structures. The volme is the 1st to deal with robustness in organic, ecological, and computational platforms. it's an outgrowth of a brand new study application on robustness on the Sante Fe Institute based by way of the David and Lucile Packard origin.

Self-organized biological dynamics & nonlinear control

The starting to be effect of nonlinear technology on biology and drugs is essentially altering our view of dwelling organisms and affliction strategies. This ebook introduces the applying to biomedicine of a large variety of thoughts from nonlinear dynamics, resembling self-organization, complexity, coherence, stochastic resonance, fractals, and chaos.

Semi-Autonomous Networks: Effective Control of Networked Systems through Protocols, Design, and Modeling

This thesis analyzes and explores the layout of managed networked dynamic platforms - dubbed semi-autonomous networks. The paintings techniques the matter of potent keep an eye on of semi-autonomous networks from 3 fronts: protocols that are run on person brokers within the community; the community interconnection topology layout; and effective modeling of those frequently large-scale networks.

Note that the origin belongs to the Lorenz attractor and that the same is true in the Double Scroll. At the origin in the Lorenz attractor, however, all eigenvalues are real, whereas in our case, the origin has one positive real eigenvalue and a pair of complex-conjugate eigenvalues which is responsible for the curled up structure.

1 Introduction The purpose of this chapter is to give concrete experimental as well as numerical results of bifurcation phenomena in electronic circuits together with reasonable theoretical justifications. All circuits described are so simple that high school students can build them. All of them except for one, in addition, behave within audible frequencies. We strongly recommend that the reader build at least one of them, and take a look at and listen to the bifurcations. It is a lot of fun. A circuit is an interconnection of components.
