About this book
This book focuses on recent progress in complexity research based on the fundamental nonlinear dynamical and statistical theory of oscillations, waves, chaos, and structures far from equilibrium. Celebrating seminal contributions to the field by Prof. M. I. Rabinovich of the University of California at San Diego, this volume brings together perspectives on both the fundamental aspects of complexity studies, as well as in applications in different fields ranging from granular patterns to understanding of the cognitive brain and mind dynamics. The slate of world-class authors review recent achievements that together present a broad and coherent coverage of modern research in complexity greater than the sum of its parts.
- Presents the most up-to-date developments in the studies of complexity
- Combines basic and applied aspects
- Links background nonlinear theory of oscillations and waves with modern approaches
- Allows readers to recognize general dynamical principles across the applications fields
