Controlling Chaos: Theoretical and Practical Methods in NonLinear Dynamics
ISBN: 9780123968401 / Angielski / Twarda / 164 str. More than two decades of intensive studies on nonlinear dynamics have raised questions on the practical applications of chaos. One possible answer is to control chaotic behavior in a predictable way. This book, oneof the first on the subject, explores the ideas behind controlling chaos.
Controlling Chaos explains, using simple examples, both the mathematical theory and experimental results used to apply chaotic dynamics to real engineering systems. Chuas circuit is used as an example throughout the book as it can be easily constructed in the laboratory and numerically modeled. The...

Discrete Dynamical Modeling
ISBN: 9780195084382 / Angielski / Twarda / 448 str. This book presents an introduction to the wide range of techniques and applications for dynamic mathematical modeling that are useful in studying systemic change over time. The author expertly explains how the key to studying change is to determine a relationship between occurring events and events that transpire in the near future. Mathematical modeling of such causeandeffect relationships can often lead to accurate predictions of events that occur farther in the future. Sandefur's approach uses many examples from algebrasuch as factoring, exponentials and logarithmsand includes many...

Hamiltonian Chaos and Fractional Dynamics
ISBN: 9780198526049 / Angielski / Twarda / 421 str. The dynamics of realistic Hamiltonian systems has unusual microscopic features that are direct consequences of its fractional spacetime structure and its phase space topology. The book deals with the fractality of the chaotic dynamics and kinetics, and also includes material on nonergodic and nonwellmixing Hamiltonian dynamics. The book does not follow the traditional scheme of most of today's literature on chaos. The intention of the author has been to put together some of the most complex and yet open problems on the general theory of chaotic systems. The importance of the discussed...

In the Wake of Chaos: Unpredictable Order in Dynamical Systems
ISBN: 9780226429762 / Angielski / Miękka / 190 str. Chaos theory has captured scientific and popular attention. What began as the discovery of randomness in simple physical systems has become a widespread fascination with "chaotic" models of everything from business cycles to brainwaves to heart attacks. But what exactly does this explosion of new research into chaotic phenomena mean for our understanding of the world? In this timely book, Stephen Kellert takes the first sustained look at the broad intellectual and philosophical questions raised by recent advances in chaos theory its implications for science as a source of knowledge and for...

Information Dynamics
ISBN: 9780306439124 / Angielski / Twarda / 364 str. Information and dynamics are key terms in many contemporary directions of research in numerous fields. Basic frarneworks in this regard are information theory and the theory of dynamical systems. The origin of both areas essentially dates back into the 20s of this century. An excellent presentation of the history of information theory from its early days (e.g, Nyquist, Hartley) until to the 70s has been given by J.R. Pierce et al. in the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory IT19 (1973). System theory, the other branch mentioned above, also started with first publications in the 20s (e.g.,...

Chaos and Fractals: New Frontiers of Science
ISBN: 9780387202297 / Angielski / Twarda / 864 str. Almost 12 years have passed by since we wrote Chaos and Fractals. At the time we were hoping that our approach of writing a book which would be both accessible without mathematical sophistication and portray these exiting new fields in an authentic manner would find an audience. Now we know it did. We know from many reviews and personal letters that the book is used in a wide range of ways: researchers use it to acquaint themselves, teachers use it in college and university courses, students use it for background reading, and there is also a substantial audience of lay people who just want to...

Chaos: A Statistical Perspective
ISBN: 9780387952802 / Angielski / Twarda / 300 str. It was none other than Henri Poincare who at the turn of the last century, recognised that initialvalue sensitivity is a fundamental source of random ness. For statisticians working within the traditional statistical framework, the task of critically assimilating randomness generated by a purely de terministic system, often known as chaos, is an intellectual challenge. Like some other statisticians, we have taken up this challenge and our curiosity as reporters and participants has led us to investigate beyond the earlier discoveries in the field. Earlier statistical work in the area was...

Analysis of Observed Chaotic Data
ISBN: 9780387983721 / Angielski / Miękka / 272 str. When I encountered the idea of chaotic behavior in deterministic dynami cal systems, it gave me both great pause and great relief. The origin of the great relief was work I had done earlier on renormalization group properties of homogeneous, isotropic fluid turbulence. At the time I worked on that, it was customary to ascribe the apparently stochastic nature of turbulent flows to some kind of stochastic driving of the fluid at large scales. It was simply not imagined that with purely deterministic driving the fluid could be turbulent from its own chaotic motion. I recall a colleague...

Analysis and Simulation of Chaotic Systems
ISBN: 9780387989433 / Angielski / Twarda / 318 str. Beginning with realistic mathematical or verbal models of physical or biological phenomena, the author derives tractable mathematical models that are amenable to further mathematical analysis or to elucidating computer simulations. For the most part, derivations are based on perturbation methods. Because of this, the majority of the text is devoted to careful derivations of implicit function theorems, the method of averaging, and quasistatic state approximation methods. The duality between stability and perturbation is developed and used, relying heavily on the concept of stability under...

Markov Models & Optimization
ISBN: 9780412314100 / Angielski / Twarda / 295 str. This text presents a new approach to problems of evaluating and optimizing the performance of continuoustime stochastic systems. This approach is based on the use of a family of Markov processes called piecewisedeterministic processes (PDPs) as a general class of stochastic system models. A PDP is a Markov process that follows deterministic trajectories between random jumps, the latter occurring either spontaneously, in a Poissonlike fashion, or when the process hits the boundary of its state space.

Dynamical Systems and Control
ISBN: 9780415309974 / Angielski / Twarda / 456 str. The 11th International Workshop on Dynamics and Control brought together scientists and engineers from diverse fields and gave them a venue to develop a greater understanding of this discipline and how it relates to many areas in science, engineering, economics, and biology. The event gave researchers an opportunity to investigate ideas and techniques from outside their own fields of expertise, enabling a crosspollination of dynamics and control perspectives. Now there is a book that documents the major presentations of the workshop, providing a foundation for further research.
