Description

Written by recognized experts, this edited book covers recent theoretical, experimental and applied issues in the growing field of Complex Systems and Nonlinear Dynamics. It is divided into two parts, with the first section application based, incorporating the theory of bifurcation analysis, numerical computations of instabilities in dynamical systems and discussing experimental developments. The second part covers the broad category of statistical mechanics and dynamical systems. Several novel exciting theoretical and mathematical insights and their consequences are conveyed to the reader.
This book is of interest to a broad audience of scientists involved in the theory and applications of nonlinear dynamics and complex systems within the fields of physics, mathematics, biology, chemistry and engineering.
