Robust Design: A Repertoire of Biological, Ecological, and by Erica Jen

By Erica Jen

Powerful layout brings jointly sixteen chapters through an eminent team of authors in quite a lot of fields providing facets 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 learn software on robustness on the Sante Fe Institute based through the David and Lucile Packard origin. For these attracted to complexity or interdisciplinary technology, robustness is noticeable as at present one of the such a lot intellectually energetic and promising study components with vital functions in all fields of technology, enterprise, and economics.

Synergetics: an introduction

This e-book is an often-requested reprint of 2 vintage texts via H. Haken: "Synergetics. An creation" and "Advanced Synergetics". Synergetics, an interdisciplinary examine software initiated by means of H. Haken in 1969, offers with the systematic and methodological method of the quickly turning out 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 by way of an eminent staff of authors in quite a lot of fields offering elements of robustness in organic, ecological, and computational structures. The volme is the 1st to handle robustness in organic, ecological, and computational platforms. it really is an outgrowth of a brand new learn application on robustness on the Sante Fe Institute based via the David and Lucile Packard origin.

Self-organized biological dynamics & nonlinear control

The growing to be influence of nonlinear technology on biology and drugs is essentially altering our view of residing organisms and ailment techniques. This booklet introduces the applying to biomedicine of a vast diversity of suggestions from nonlinear dynamics, comparable 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 techniques the matter of potent 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 usually large-scale networks.
