Synergetics: an introduction

This e-book is an often-requested reprint of 2 vintage texts by means of H. Haken: "Synergetics. An advent" and "Advanced Synergetics". Synergetics, an interdisciplinary study software initiated by way of H. Haken in 1969, offers with the systematic and methodological method of the swiftly starting to be 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 staff of authors in quite a lot of fields providing 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 truly is an outgrowth of a brand new examine software on robustness on the Sante Fe Institute based by way of the David and Lucile Packard origin.

Self-organized biological dynamics & nonlinear control

The becoming effect of nonlinear technology on biology and drugs is essentially altering our view of residing organisms and affliction approaches. This e-book introduces the applying to biomedicine of a extensive diversity of options from nonlinear dynamics, corresponding 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 platforms - dubbed semi-autonomous networks. The paintings ways the matter of powerful regulate 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.
