Self-organized biological dynamics & nonlinear control by Jan Walleczek

By Jan Walleczek

The becoming effect of nonlinear technology on biology and drugs is essentially altering our view of residing organisms and disorder techniques. This ebook introduces the applying to biomedicine of a wide variety of options from nonlinear dynamics, corresponding to self-organization, complexity, coherence, stochastic resonance, fractals, and chaos. Written by way of best figures within the box, insurance info experimental and theoretical learn, in addition to the rising technological probabilities comparable to nonlinear regulate strategies for treating pathological biodynamics, together with middle arrhythmias and epilepsy. Self-Organized organic Dynamics and Nonlinear regulate will allure the curiosity of pros and scholars from quite a lot of disciplines, together with physicists, chemists, biologists, sensory physiologists and clinical researchers corresponding to cardiologists, neurologists and biomedical engineers.

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 learn application initiated via H. Haken in 1969, bargains with the systematic and methodological method of the speedily 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)

Powerful layout brings jointly sixteen chapters by way of an eminent crew of authors in a variety of fields featuring features of robustness in organic, ecological, and computational structures. The volme is the 1st to handle robustness in organic, ecological, and computational structures. it truly is an outgrowth of a brand new learn software on robustness on the Sante Fe Institute based through the David and Lucile Packard starting place.

Self-organized biological dynamics & nonlinear control

The turning out to be effect of nonlinear technological know-how on biology and drugs is essentially altering our view of residing organisms and disorder strategies. This publication introduces the applying to biomedicine of a huge variety of recommendations 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 structures - dubbed semi-autonomous networks. The paintings ways the matter of powerful keep watch over 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.

Example text

In this case the response then not only depends on one frequency and the related amplitude as well as the internal state of the system, it also depends on the specific temporal pattern of the signal. Nevertheless, general trends can be deduced, because in most cases a few frequencies will dominate. New temporal structures and temporal organizations emerge beyond a critical point of instability of a nonlinear steady state. The same holds for spatial structures, occurring beyond a critical point of instability of a homogeneous state.

Once dynamical similarity had been noted, a suggestion was made to look for Ca> waves, since the similarity to chemical systems suggested that spiral waves ought, also, to exist in cellular systems. , 1991). The observation of these waves and their similarity to both chemical waves (Epstein, 1991) and waves of electrical excitation in excitable cardiac tissue (another biological system whose understanding has been greatly facilitated by comparison with chemical systems) lent further support to the notion that the Ca> oscillations observed in different cell types were dynamically similar.
