Part of the Springer Series in Synergetics book series (SSSYN)


Mankind has always been concerned with the desire of understanding the universe, knowing the ultimate reasons behind past events and having the ability of forecasting the future ones. From the earliest times, the study of natural cycles has been needed for a successful harvest. Astronomy, as one of the oldest sciences, was born with the main task of compiling the several observed phenomena in the skies. It attempted to understand the underlying mechanisms of the observations to figure out what was going to be observed in the future.
