Noise in Nonlinear Dynamical Systems: Volume 1, Theory of by Frank Moss, P. V. E. McClintock

By Frank Moss, P. V. E. McClintock

Nature is inherently noisy and nonlinear. it's noisy within the experience that every one macroscopic structures are topic to the fluctuations in their environments and in addition to inner fluctuations. it really is nonlinear within the experience that the restoring strength on a approach displaced from equilibrium doesn't frequently range linearly with the scale of the displacement. To calculate the houses of stochastic (noisy) nonlinear platforms is generally super tricky, even supposing substantial development has been made some time past. the 3 volumes that make up Noise in Nonlinear Dynamical platforms contain a suite of in particular written authoritative experiences on all points of the topic, consultant of all of the significant practitioners within the box. the 1st quantity offers with the elemental thought of stochastic nonlinear platforms. It comprises an ancient evaluation of the origins of the sphere, chapters masking a few constructed theoretical options for the research of colored noise, and the 1st English-language translation of the landmark 1933 paper via Pontriagin, Andronov and Vitt.

Synergetics: an introduction

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

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

Strong layout brings jointly sixteen chapters via an eminent crew of authors in quite a lot of fields providing points of robustness in organic, ecological, and computational structures. The volme is the 1st to deal with robustness in organic, ecological, and computational structures. it really is an outgrowth of a brand new examine software on robustness on the Sante Fe Institute based by means of the David and Lucile Packard starting place.

Self-organized biological dynamics & nonlinear control

The becoming effect of nonlinear technological know-how on biology and medication is essentially altering our view of dwelling organisms and illness tactics. This e-book introduces the applying to biomedicine of a wide variety of innovations from nonlinear dynamics, akin to 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 structures - dubbed semi-autonomous networks. The paintings ways the matter of powerful 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 usually large-scale networks.

In the continuum case the derivative dP/dPw is the functional of x (t), and can be mathematically introduced without resorting to the limit This is a consequence of a Radon-Nicodim theorem in the theory of probability. e. for any probability space, the derivative of one measure with respect to another exists if these measures are mutually absolutely continuous. The functional derivative dP/dPw cannot be written in the form of the ratio of functional probability densities p [x(t) ] and Pw[x(t)] since these functional probability densities are not (in contrast to dP/dPw) precisely definable concepts for e = In other words, in the rigorous continuum case the derivative dP/dPw is defined in the theory of probability without the definition of functional probability densities.

The S-equation was first published in Stratonovich (1964). 60) were obtained in 1961 in the Russian original of a two-volume treatise (Stratonovich, 1963, 1 967). ) Since then this problem has been considered in many works. 3 Concept of functional probability density. Simple particular cases A number of effective approximate methods of analysis of stochastic dynamical systems are based on using the functional probability density to describe the processes going on in these systems. Some of these methods will be described below.

We begin by elucidating the concept of functional probability density. For simple diffusion processes the functional probability densities and path integrals were first introduced by Wiener in the 1920s (Wiener, 1 923, 1924). In the case of the simple linear Markov process the path integral was considered in Onsager and Machlup (1953). In the non-linear Markov case the functional probability density was obtained in Stratonovich (1962) and elsewhere (see below). 1 Functional probability densities for the Wiener process and white noise Historically, the Markov processes were the first for which functional probability densities were written down.
