This long-awaited revised second edition of the standard reference on the subject has been considerably expanded to include such recent developments as novel control schemes, control of chaotic space-time patterns, control of noisy nonlinear systems, and communication with chaos, as well as promising new directions in research. The contributions from leading international scientists active in the field provide a comprehensive overview of our current level of knowledge on chaos control and its applications in physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, and engineering. In addition, they show the overlap with the traditional field of control theory in the engineering community.
An interdisciplinary approach of interest to scientists and engineers working in a number of areas.
Basic Aspects and Extension of Methods
Controlling Space-Time Chaos
Controlling Noisy Motion
Communicating with Chaos, Chaos Synchronisation
Applications to Optics
Applications to Electronic Systems
Applications to Chemical Reaction Systems
Applications to Biology
Applications to Engineering
"The book is interdisciplinary and can be of interest to graduate students, researchers in different fields: physicists, mathematicians and, engineers." (Zentralblatt MATH, 1132, 2008)
