Title:Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaotic Phenomena: An Introduction [electronic resource]
Author(s): Bhimsen K Shivamoggi
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book starts with a discussion of nonlinear ordinary differential equations, bifurcation theory and Hamiltonian dynamics. It then embarks on a systematic discussion of the traditional topics of modern nonlinear dynamics --integrable systems, Poin car maps, chaos, fractals and strange attractors. The Bakers transformation, the logistic map and Lorenz system are discussed in detail in view of their central place in the subject. There is a detaileddiscussion of solitons centered around the Korteweg-d eVries equation in view of its central place in integrable systems. Then, there is a discussion of the Painlev property of nonlinear differential equations which seems to provide atest of integrability. Finally, there is a detailed discussion of the appli cation of fractals and multi-fractals to fully-developed turbulence -- a problem whose understanding has been considerably enriched by the application of theconcepts and methods of modern nonlinear dynamics. On the application side, there is a special emp hasis on some aspects of fluid dynamics and plasma physics reflecting the authors involvement in these areas of physics. A fewexercises have been provided that range from simple applications to occasional considerable extension of the theory. This book ha s grown out of the authors lecture notes for an interdisciplinary graduate-level course on nonlineardynamics. The basic concepts, language and results of nonlinear dynamical systems are described in a clear and coherent way. In order to allow for an inter disciplinary readership, an informal style has been adopted and the mathematicalformalism has been kept to a minimum. This book is addressed to first-year graduate students in applied mathematics, physics, and engineering, and is useful also to any theore tically inclined researcher in the physical sciences andengineering. This second edition constitutes an extensive rewrite of the text involving refinement and enhancement of the clarity a

Author(s): Ernesto Salinelli
Franco Tomarelli
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides an introduction to the analysis of discrete dynamical systems. The content is presented by an unitary approach that blends the perspective of mathematical modeling together with the ones of several disciplineas Mathematical Analysi s, Linear Algebra, Numerical Analysis, Systems Theory and Probability. After a preliminary discussion of several models, the main tools for the study of linear and non-linear scalar dynamical systems arepresented, paying particular attention to the stabil ity analysis. Linear difference equations are studied in detail and an elementary introduction of Z and Discrete Fourier Transform is presented. A whole chapter is devoted to thestudy of bifurcations and chaotic dynamics. One-step vector-valued dynamical systems are the subject of three chapters, where the reader can find the applications to positive systems, Markov chains, networks and search engines. Thebook is addressed mainly to students in Mathematics, Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Eco nomics. The exposition is self-contained: some appendices present prerequisites, algorithms and suggestions for computer simulations.The analysis of several examples is enriched by the proposition of many related exercises of increasing difficulty in the last chapter the detailed solution is given for most of them

Note:Complexity Science and Chaos Theory are fascinating areas of scientific research with wide-ranging applications. The interdisciplinary nature and ubiquity of complexity and chaos are features that provides scientists with amotivation to pursue genera l theoretical tools and frameworks. Complex systems give rise to emergent behaviors, which in turn produce novel and interesting phenomena in science, engineering, as well as in the socio-economic sciences.The aim of all Symposia on Chaos and Complex Syst ems (CCS) is to bring together scientists, engineers, economists and social scientists, and to discuss the latest insights and results obtained in the area of correspondingnonlinear-system complex (chaotic) behavior. Especially for the 4th International I nterdisciplinary Chaos Symposium on Chaos and Complex Systems, which took place April 29th to May 2nd, 2012 in Antalya, Turkey, the scope of thesymposium had been further enlarged so as to encompass the presentation of work from circuits to econophysics, and from nonlinear analysis to the history of chaos theory. The corresponding proceedings collected in this volumeaddress a broad spectrum of contemporary topics, including but not limited to networks, circuits, systems, biology, evolution and ecology, n onlinear dynamics and pattern formation, as well as neural, psychological, psycho-social,socio-economic, management complexity and global systems

Note:Synchronization of chaotic systems, a patently nonlinear phenomenon, has emerged as a highly active interdisciplinary research topic at the interface of physics, biology, applied mathematics and engineering sciences. In thisconnection, time-delay sys tems described by delay differential equations have developed as particularly suitable tools for modeling specific dynamical systems. Indeed, time-delay is ubiquitous in many physical systems, for example dueto finite switching speeds of amplifiers in ele ctronic circuits, finite lengths of vehicles in traffic flows, finite signal propagation times in biological networks and circuits, and quite generally whenever memory effects arerelevant. This monograph presents the basics of chaotic time-delay systems a nd their synchronization with an emphasis on the effects of time-delay feedback which give rise to new collective dynamics. Special attention is devoted toscalar chaotic/hyperchaotic time-delay systems, and some higher order models, occurring in different branches of science and technology as well as to the synchronization of their coupled versions. Last but not least, the presentationas a whole strives for a balance between the necessary mathematical description of the basics and the detailed presentatio n of real-world applications

Note:Hamiltonian Chaos Beyond the KAM Theory: Dedicated to George M. Zaslavsky (19352008) covers the recent developments and advances in the theory and application of Hamiltonian chaos in nonlinear Hamiltonian systems. Thebook is dedicated to Dr. George Z aslavsky, who was one of three founders of the theory of Hamiltonian chaos. Each chapter in this book was written by well-established scientists in the field of nonlinear Hamiltonian systems. Thedevelopment presented in this book goes beyond the KAM theor y, and the onset and disappearance of chaos in the stochastic and resonant layers of nonlinear Hamiltonian systems are predicted analytically, instead of qualitatively. Thebook is intended for researchers in the field of nonlinear dynamics in mathematics, physics and engineering. Dr. Albert C.J. Luo is a Professor at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, USA. Dr. Valentin Afraimovich is a Professorat San Luis Potosi University, Mexico

Note:The text treats a remarkable spectrum of topics and has a little for everyone. It can serve as an introduction to many of the topics of dynamical systems, and will help even the most jaded reader, such as this reviewer, enjoysome of the interactive a spects of studying dynamics using Maple. UK Nonlinear News (Review of First Edition) The book will be useful for all kinds of dynamical systems courses. [It] shows the power of using a computeralgebra program to study dynamical systems, and, by giving so many worked examples, provides ample opportunity for experiments. [It] is well written and a pleasure to read, which is helped by its attention to historicalbackground. Mathematical Reviews (Review of First Edition) Since the first edition of this book w as published in 2001, Maple has evolved from Maple V into Maple 13. Accordingly, this new edition has been thoroughly updated andexpanded to include more applications, examples, and exercises, all with solutions two new chapters on neural networks and sim ulation have also been added. There are also new sections on perturbation methods, normal forms, Grbnerbases, and chaos synchronization. The work provides an introduction to the theory of dynamical systems with the aid of Maple. The author has emphasized breadth of coverage rather than fine detail, and theorems with proof are kept to aminimum. Some of the topics treated are scarcely covered elsewhere. Common themes such as bifurcation, bistability, chaos, instability, multistability, and periodicity run t hrough several chapters. The book has a hands-on approach,using Maple as a pedagogical tool throughout. Maple worksheet files are listed at the end of each chapter, and along with commands, programs, and output may be viewed in color at the authors websit e. Additional applications andfurther links of interest may be found at Maplesofts Application Center. Dynamical Systems with Applications using Maple is aimed at senior unde

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Dynamical Systems with Applications using Mathematica provides an introduction to the theory of dynamical systems with the aid of the Mathematica computer algebra package. The book has a very hands-on approach and takes thereader from basic theory to recently published research material. Emphasized throughout are numerous applications to biology, chemical kinetics, economics, electronics, epidemiology, nonlinear optics, mechanics, population dynamics,and neural networks. Mathematicas symbolic, numeri cal, and graphical capabilities make it ideal for the study of nonlinear dynamical systems. An introductory chapter provides complete tutorials on how to use Mathematicastext-based input commands and palettes, enabling new users to become familiar with th e program, while providing a good reference source for experts. Working Mathematica notebooks will be available athttp://library.wolfram.com/infocenter/Books/AppliedMathematics/. Throughout the book, the author has focused on breadth of coverage rather th an fine detail, with theorems and proofs being kept to a minimum. The first part of the bookdeals with continuous systems using ordinary differential equations, while the second part is devoted to the study of discrete dynamical systems. Some of the mater ial presented is at the postgraduate level and has been influenced bythe authors own research interests. Exercises are included at the end of every chapter. A comprehensive bibliography including textbooks and research papers rounds out the work. The book is intended for senior undergraduate andgraduate students as well as working scientists in applied mathematics, the natural sciences, and engineering. Many chapters of the book are especially useful as reference material for senior undergraduate independ ent project work.Also by the author: Dynamical Systems with Applications using MATLAB, ISBN 978-0-8176-4321-8 Dynamical Systems with Applications using Maple, ISBN 978-0-8176-4150-4

Note:The book is directed to researchers and graduate students pursuing an advanced degree. It provides details of techniques directed towards solving problems in non-linear dynamics and chos that are, in general, not amenable to aperturbative treatment. The consideration of fundamental interactions is a prime example where non-perturbative techniques are needed. Extension of these techniques to finite temperature problems is considered. At present these ideasare primarily used in a perturbative context. However, non-perturbative techniques have been considered in some specific cases. Experts in the field on non-linear dynamics and chaos and fundamental interactions elaborate the techniquesand provide a critical look at the present status and explore futu re directions that may be fruitful. The text of the main talks will be very useful to young graduate students who are starting their studies in these areas

Note:This book offers a modern updated review on the most important activities in today dynamical systems and statistical mechanics by some of the best experts in the domain. It gives a contemporary and pedagogical view on theories ofclassical and quantum chaos and complexity in hamiltonian and ergodic systems and their applications to anomalous transport in fluids, plasmas, oceans and atom-optic devices and to control of chaotic transport. The book is issued fromlecture notes of the International Summer School on Chaotic Dynamics and Transport in Classical and Quantum Systems held in Cargse (Corsica) 18th to the 30th August 2003. It reflects the spirit of the School to provide lecturesat the post-doctoral level on basic concepts and tools. The first part concerns ergodicity and mixing, complexity and entropy functions, SRB measures, fractal dimensions and bifurcations in hamiltonian systems. Then, models ofdynamical evolutions of transport processes in classical and quantum systems have been largely expl ained. The second part concerns transport in fluids, plasmas and reacting media. On the other hand, new experiments of cold opticallytrapped atoms and electrodynamics cavity have been thoroughly presented. Finally, several papers bear on synchronism and c ontrol of chaos. The target audience of the proceedings are physicists, mathematicians and all scientistsinvolved in Chaos and Dynamical Systems Theory and their fundamental applications in Physics and in the Science of Complex and Nonlinear phenomena
