Title:Stochastic Foundations in Movement Ecology [electronic resource] : Anomalous Diffusion, Front Propagation and Random Searches
Author(s): Vicen Mndez
Daniel Campos
Frederic Bartumeus
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book presents the fundamental theory for non-standard diffusion problems in movement ecology. Lvy processes and anomalous diffusion have shown to be both powerful and useful tools for qualitatively and quantitativelydescribing a wide variety of spatial population ecological phenomena and dynamics, such as invasion fronts and search strategies. Adopting a self-contained, textbook-style approach, the authors provide the elements of statisticalphysics and stochastic processes on which the modeling of movement ecology is based and systematically introduce the physical characterization of ecological processes at the microscopic, mesoscopic and macroscopic levels. The explicitdefinition of these levels and their interrelations is particularly suitable to coping with the broad spectrum of space and time scales involved in bio-ecological problems. Including numerous exercises (with solutions), this text isaimed at graduate students and newcomers in this field at the interface of theoretical ecology, ma thematical biology and physics

Title:Input Modeling with Phase-Type Distributions and Markov Models [electronic resource] : Theory and Applications
Author(s): Peter Buchholz
Jan Kriege
Iryna Felko
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Containing a summary of several recent results on Markov-based input modeling in a coherent notation, this book introduces and compares algorithms for parameter fitting and gives an overview of available software tools in thearea. Due to progress mad e in recent years with respect to new algorithms to generate PH distributions and Markovian arrival processes from measured data, the models outlined are useful alternatives to other distributions or stochasticprocesses used for input modeling. Graduate s tudents and researchers in applied probability, operations research and computer science along with practitioners using simulation or analytical models for performance analysis and capacityplanning will find the unified notation and up-to-date results pre sented useful. Input modeling is the key step in model based system analysis to adequately describe the load of a system using stochastic models. The goal of inputmodeling is to find a stochastic model to describe a sequence ofmeasurements from a real sys tem to model for example the inter-arrival times of packets in a computer network or failure times of components in a manufacturing plant.Typical application areas are performance and dependability analysis of computer systems, communication networks, log istics or manufacturing systems but also the analysis of biological or chemical reaction networks and similarproblems. Often the measured values have a high variability and are correlated. Its been known for a long time that Markov based models like phase type distributions or Markovian arrival processes are very general and allow one tocapture even complex behaviors. However, the parameterization of these models results often in a complex and non-linear optimization problem. Only recently, several new re sults about the modeling capabilities of Markov based models andalgorithms to fit the parameters of those models have been published
Contents:1. Introduction
2. Phase Type Distributions
3. Parameter Fitting for Phase Type Distributions

Note:The cell cycle is a sequence of biochemical events that are controlled by complex but robust molecular machinery. This enables cells to achieve accurate self-reproduction under a broad range of conditions. Environmental changesare transmitted by mole cular signaling networks, which coordinate their actions with the cell cycle. Thiswork presents the first description oftwo complementary computational modelsdescribing the influence of osmotic stress onthe entire cell cycle of S. cerevisiae. Our models condense a vast amount of experimental evidence on the interaction of the cell cycle network components with the osmotic stress pathway. Importantly, it is only by considering theentire cell cycle that we are able to make a series of novel predictions whi ch emerge from the coupling between the molecular components of different cell cycle phases. The model-based predictions are supported by experiments in S.cerevisiae and, moreover, have recently been observed in other eukaryotes. Furthermore our models r eveal the mechanisms that emerge as a result of the interaction between the cell cycle and stress response networks
Contents:A biological overview of the cell cycle and its response to osmotic stress and the
factor
ODE model of the cell cycle response to osmotic stress
Boolean model of the cell cycle response to stress

Title:Elliptic Partial Differential Equations [electronic resource] : Volume 2: Reaction-Diffusion Equations
Author(s): Vitaly Volpert
Date:2014
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:If we had to formulate in one sentence what this book is about it might be How partial differential equations can help to understand heat explosion, tumor growth or evolution of biological species. These and many otherapplications are described by re action-diffusion equations. The theory of reaction-diffusion equations appeared in the first half of the last century. In the present time, it is widely used in population dynamics, chemical physics,biomedical modelling. The purpose of this book is to pre sent the mathematical theory of reaction-diffusion equations in the context of their numerous applications. We will go from the general mathematical theory to specific equationsand then to their applications. Mathematical anaylsis of reaction-diffusion eq uations will be based on the theory of Fredholm operators presented in the first volume. Existence, stability and bifurcations of solutions will be studiedfor bounded domains and in the case of travelling waves. The classical theory of reaction-diffusion equations and new topics such as nonlocal equations and multi-scale models in biology will be considered

Note:Many mathematical models of physical, biological and social systems involve partial differential equations (PDEs). The desire to understand and influence these systems naturally leads to considering problems of control andoptimization. This book pres ents important topics in the areas of control of PDEs and of PDE-constrained optimization, covering the full spectrum from analysis to numerical realization and applications. Leading scientists addresscurrent topics such as non-smooth optimization, Hamilt onJacobiBellmann equations, issues in optimization and control of stochastic partial differential equations, reduced-order models and domain decomposition, discretizationerror estimates for optimal control problems, and control of quantum-dynamical system s. These contributions originate from the International Workshop on Control and Optimization of PDEs in Mariatrost in October 2011. This book isan excellent resource for students and researchers in control or optimization of differential equations. Reader s interested in theory or in numerical algorithms will find this book equally useful

Title:Evolution Equations Arising in the Modelling of Life Sciences [electronic resource]

Date:2013
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book deals with the modeling, analysis and simulation of problems arising in the life sciences, and especially in biological processes. The models and findings presented result from intensive discussions with microbiologists,doctors and medical staff, physicists, chemists and industrial engineers and are based on experimental data. They lead to a new class of degenerate density-dependent nonlinear reaction-diffusion convective equations that simultaneouslycomprise two kinds of degeneracy: porous -medium and fast-diffusion type degeneracy. To date, this class is still not clearly understood in the mathematical literature and thus especially interesting. The author both derivesrealistic life science models and their above-mentioned governing equat ions of the degenerate types and systematically studies these classes of equations. In each concrete case well-posedness, the dependence of solutions on boundaryconditions reflecting some properties of the environment, and the large-time behavior of solut ions are investigated and in some instances also studied numerically

Note:This book primarily concerns quasilinear and semilinear elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations, inequalities, and systems. The exposition leads the reader through the general theory based on abstract (pseudo-)monotone or accretive oper ators as fast as possible towards the analysis of concrete differential equations, which have specific applications in continuum (thermo-) mechanics of solids and fluids, electrically (semi-) conductive media,modelling of biological systems, or in mechani cal engineering. Selected parts aremainly an introduction into the subject while some others form an advanced textbook. Thesecond edition simplifies and extends the exposition atparticular spots and augments the applications especially towards thermally coupled systems, magnetism, and more. The intended audience is graduate and PhD students as well as researchers in the theory of partial differential equationsor in mathematical modelling of distributed parameter systems. ------ The monograph contains a w ealth of material in both the abstract theory of steady-state or evolution equations of monotone and accretive type and concreteapplications to nonlinear partial differential equations from mathematical modeling. The organization of the material is well d one, and the presentation, although concise, is clear, elegant and rigorous. () this book is a notableaddition to the existing literature. Also, it certainly will prove useful to engineers, physicists, biologists and other scientists interested in the ana lysis of (...) nonlinear differential models of the real world.

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Brownian dynamics serve as mathematical models for the diffusive motion of microscopic particles of various shapes in gaseous, liquid, or solid environments. The renewed interest in Brownian dynamics is due primarily to their keyrole in molecular and cellular biophysics: diffusion of ions and molecules is the driver of all life. Brownian dynamics simulations are the numerical realizations of stochastic differential equations that model the functions ofbiological micro devices such as protein ionic ch annels of biological membranes, cardiac myocytes, neuronal synapses, and many more. Stochastic differential equations are ubiquitous models in computational physics, chemistry,biophysics, computer science, communications theory, mathematical finance theor y, and many other disciplines. Brownian dynamics simulations of the random motion of particles, be it molecules or stock prices, give rise to mathematicalproblems that neither the kinetic theory of Maxwell and Boltzmann, nor Einsteins and Langevins theori es of Brownian motion could predict. This book takes the readers on a journey that starts with the rigorous definition ofmathematical Brownian motion, and ends with the explicit solution of a series of complex problems that have immediate applications. It is aimed at applied mathematicians, physicists, theoretical chemists, and physiologists who areinterested in modeling, analysis, and simulation of micro devices of microbiology. The book contains exercises and worked out examples throughout

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Mathematics for the Life Sciences provides present and future biologists with the mathematical concepts and tools needed to understand and use mathematical models and read advanced mathematical biology books. It presentsmathematics in biological cont exts, focusing on the central mathematical ideas, and providing detailed explanations. The author assumes no mathematics background beyond algebra and precalculus. Calculus is presented as aone-chapter primer that is suitable for readers who have not stud ied the subject before, as well as readers who have taken a calculus course and need a review. This primer is followed by a novel chapter on mathematical modeling thatbegins with discussions of biological data and the basic principles of modeling. The rem ainder of the chapter introduces the reader to topics in mechanistic modeling (deriving models from biological assumptions) and empiricalmodeling (using data to parameterize and select models). The modeling chapter contains a thorough treatment of key ide as and techniques that are often neglected in mathematics books. It also provides the reader with a sophisticatedviewpoint and the essential background needed to make full use of the remainder of the book, which includes two chapters on probability and it s applications to inferential statistics and three chapters on discrete and continuousdynamical systems. The biological content of the book is self-contained and includes many basic biology topics such as the genetic code, Mendelian genetics, population d ynamics, predator-prey relationships, epidemiology, andimmunology. The large number of problem sets include some drill problems along with a large number of case studies. The latter are divided into step-by-step problems and sorted into the appropriate se ction, allowing readers togradually develop complete investigations from understanding the biological assumptions to a complete analysis

Note:Design happens everywhere, whether in animate objects (e.g., dendritic lung structures, bacterial colonies, and corals), inanimate patterns (river basins, beach slope, and dendritic crystals), social dynamics (pedestrian trafficflows), or engineered systems (heat dissipation in electronic circuitry). This design in nature often takes on remarkably similar patterns, which can be explained under one unifying Constructal Law. This book explores theunifying power of the Constructal Law and its applicatio ns in all domains of design generation and evolution, ranging from biology and geophysics to globalization, energy, sustainability, and security. The Constructal Law accountsfor the universal tendency of flow systems to morph into evolving configurations that provide greater and easier access over time. The Constructal Law resolves the many and contradictory ad hoc statements of optimality, enddesign, and destiny in nature, such as minimum and maximum entropy production and minimum and maximum flow resist ance, and also explains the designs that are observed and copied in biomimetics. Constructal Law and the UnifyingPrinciple of Design covers the fundamentals of Constructal Theory and Design, as well as presenting a variety of state-of-the-art applications . Experts from the biological, physical and social sciences demonstrate the unification ofall design phenomena in nature, and apply this knowledge to novel designs in modern engineering, such as vascularization for self-healing and self-cooling materials for aircraft, and tree fins and cavities for heat transferenhancement. Captures a world-wide movement toward design as science Defines the place of the Constructal Law in physics and thermodynamics Features an interdisciplinaryapproach that spans phys ics, biology, engineering and the social sciences Demonstrates that a single law of physics governs all the pheno

Note:The volumes in this authoritative series present a multidisciplinary approach to modeling and simulation of flows in the cardiovascular and ventilatory systems, especially multiscale modeling and coupled simulations. Thecardiovascular and respiratory systems are tightly coupled, as their primary function is to supply oxygen to and remove carbon dioxide from the body's cells. Because physiological conduits have deformable and reactive walls,macroscopic flow behavior and prediction must be coupled to p henomenological models of nano- and microscopic events in a corrector scheme of regulated mechanisms when the vessel lumen caliber varies markedly. Therefore, investigationof flows of blood and air in physiological conduits requires an understanding of th e biology, chemistry, and physics of these systems together with the mathematical tools to describe their functioning. Volume 4 is devoted to major setsof intracellular mediators that transmit signals upon stimulation of cell-surface receptors. Activation of signaling effectors triggers the release of substances stored in cellular organelles and/or gene transcription and proteinsynthesis. Complex stages of cell signaling can be studied using proper mathematical models, once the role of each component is c arefully handled. Volume 4 also reviews various categories of cytosolic and/or nuclear mediators andillustrates some major signal transduction pathways, such as NFkappaB axis, oxygen sensing, and mechanotransduction. Reviews signaling pathways in the regu lation of circulatory and respiratory function Describes ion and molecularcarriers and receptors Integrates biology, chemistry, and physics for a multidisciplinary understanding of physiological flows

Note:Generally, spontaneous pattern formation phenomena are random and repetitive, whereas elaborate devices are the deterministic product of human design. Yet, biological organisms and collective insect constructions are exceptionalexamples of complex sy stems that are both self-organized and architectural. This book is the first initiative of its kind toward establishing a new field of research, Morphogenetic Engineering, to explore the modeling andimplementation of self-architecturing systems. Particul ar emphasis is placed on the programmability and computational abilities of self-organization, properties that are often underappreciated in complex systems sciencewhile,conversely, the benefits of self-organization are often underappreciated in engineeri ng methodologies. Altogether, the aim of this work is to provide a framework for and examples of a larger class of self-architecturingsystems, while addressing fundamental questions such as > How do biological organisms carry out morphogenetic tasks so reliably? > Can we extrapolate their self-formation capabilities to engineered systems? > Can physical systems beendowed with information (or informational systems be embedded in physics) so as to create autonomous morphologies and functions? > What are t he core principles and best practices for the design and engineering of such morphogeneticsystems? The intended audience consists of researchers and graduate students who are working on, starting to work on, or interested in programmable self-organizing s ystems in a wide range of scientific fields, including computerscience, robotics, bioengineering, control engineering, physics, theoretical biology, mathematics, and many others

Note:There are many examples of cooperation in Nature: cells cooperate to form tissues, organs cooperate to form living organisms, and individuals cooperate to raise their offspring or to hunt. However, why cooperation emerges andsurvives in hostile envir onments, when defecting would be a much more profitable short-term strategy, is a question that still remains open. During the past few years, several explanations have been proposed, including kin and groupselection, punishment and reputation mechanisms, or network reciprocity. This last one will be the center of the present study. The thesis explores the interface between the underlying structure of a given population and the outcome ofthe cooperative dynamics taking place on top of it, (namely, the Pri soner's Dilemma Game). The first part of this work analyzes the case of a static system, where the pattern of connections is fixed, so it does not evolve over time.The second part develops two models for growing topologies, where the growth and the dynami cs are entangled

Note:Complex Networks is a newly emerging field with applications in a variety of domains, such as communication networks, engineering networks, social networks, and biological networks. There has been an explosive growth of researchon complex real-world networks, a theme that is becoming pervasive in many disciplines ranging from mathematics and computer science to the social and biological sciences. Optimization of complex networks with real-world applicationsrequires a deep understanding of the interpl ay between the dynamics of the physical network and the information dynamics within the network. The Handbook of Optimization in Complex Networks: Theory and Applications provides the basictheory of these networks with several new mathematical approaches and optimization techniques to design and analyze dynamic complex networks. The volume features a wide range of applications and optimization problems derived fromresearch areas such as computer science, operations research, cellular and molecular chemis try, brain physiology, epidemiology, and ecology. This volume, as well as its companion (The Handbook of Optimization in Complex Networks:Communication and Social Networks ISBN: 978-1-4614-0856-7) is an excellent resource for graduate students, researcher s, and practitioners who wish to learn about the most up to date theory and applications on optimization of complexreal-world networks.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book is mainly about hybrid systems with continuous/discrete-time dynamics. The major part of the book consists of the theory of equations with piece-wise constant argument of generalized type. The systems as well as techniqueof investigation wer e introduced by the author very recently. They both generalized known theory about differential equations with piece-wise constant argument, introduced by K. Cook and J. Wiener in the 1980s. Moreover, differentialequations with fixed and variable moments of impulses are used to model real world problems. We consider models of neural networks, blood pressure distribution and a generalized model of the cardiac pacemaker. All the results of themanuscript have not been published in any book, yet. They are ver y recent and united with the presence of the continuous/discrete dynamics of time. It is of big interest for specialists in biology, medicine, engineering sciences,electronics. Theoretical aspects of the book meet very strong expectations of mathematician s who investigate differential equations with discontinuities of any type

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Measure-valued branching processes arise as high density limits of branching particle systems. The Dawson-Watanabe superprocess is a special class of those. The author constructs superprocesses with Borel right underlying motionsand general branching mechanisms and shows the existence of their Borel right realizations. He then uses transformations to derive the existence and regularity of several different forms of the superprocesses. This treatment simplifiesthe constructions and gives useful perspe ctives. Martingale problems of superprocesses are discussed under Feller type assumptions. The most important feature of the book is the systematic treatment of immigration superprocesses andgeneralized Ornstein--Uhlenbeck processes based on skew convolut ion semigroups. The volume addresses researchers in measure-valued processes, branching processes, stochastic analysis, biological and genetic models, and graduatestudents in probability theory and stochastic processes

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:The field of medical imaging advances so rapidly that all of those working in it, scientists, engineers, physicians, educators and others, need to frequently update their knowledge in order to stay abreast of developments. Whilejournals and periodica ls play a crucial role in this, more extensive, integrative publications that connect fundamental principles and new advances in algorithms and techniques to practical applications are essential. Medical ImageProcessing: Techniques and Applications meets this challenge and provides an enduring bridge in the ever expanding field of medical imaging. It serves as an authoritative resource and self-study guide explaining sophisticatedtechniques of quantitative image analysis, with a focus on medical applicati ons. The book emphasizes the conceptual framework of image analysis and the effective use of image processing tools. It presents a detailed approach to eachapplication while emphasizing insight and tricks of the trade, and the applicability of techniques to other research areas. Although each chapter is written by an expert (or experts) in that area and is essentiallyself-contained, fundamental connections between the different topics are emphasized so that the book forms an integrated whole. The book is designed for end users who wish to update their skills and understanding with the latesttechniques in image analysis. Providing unprecedented breadth and detail, it will be a valuable cross-disciplinary resource both at the graduate and specialist level. It is also well suited to supplement and motivate learning ingraduate-level image processing classes within biomedical engineering, radiology and computer science

Title:A Short History of Mathematical Population Dynamics [electronic resource]

Note:

As Eugene Wigner stressed, mathematics has proven unreasonably effective in the physical sciences and their technological applications. The role of mathematics in the biological, medical and social sciences has been much moremodest but has recentl y grown thanks to the simulation capacity offered by modern computers.

This book traces the history of population dynamics---a theoretical subject closely connected to genetics, ecology, epidemiology anddemography---where mathematics has brought si gnificant insights. It presents an overview of the genesis of several important themes: exponential growth, from Euler and Malthus to the Chinese one-child policy the development ofstochastic models, from Mendel's laws and the question of extinction of fa mily names to percolation theory for the spread of epidemics, and chaotic populations, where determinism and randomness intertwine.

The reader of thisbook will see, from a different perspective, the problems that scientists face when governments as k for reliable predictions to help control epidemics (AIDS, SARS, swine flu), manage renewable resources (fishing quotas, spread ofgenetically modified organisms) or anticipate demographic evolutions such as aging.

Note:Combining two important and growing areas of applied mathematicscontrol theory and modelingthis textbook introduces and builds on methods for simulating and tackling problems in a variety of applied sciences. Control theoryhas moved from primarily be ing used in engineering to an important theoretical component for optimal strategies in other sciences, such as therapies in medicine or policy in economics. Applied to mathematical models, control theory hasthe power to change the way we view biological and financial systems, taking us a step closer to solving concrete problems that arise out of these systems. Emphasizing learning by doing, the authors focus on examples andapplications to real-world problems, stressing concepts and minimizing technicalit ies. An elementary presentation of advanced concepts from the mathematical theory of optimal control is provided, giving readers the tools to solvesignificant and realistic problems. Proofs are also given whenever they may serve as a guide to the introduc tion of new concepts. This approach not only fosters an understanding of how control theory can open up modeling in areas suchas the life sciences, medicine, and economics, but also guides readers from applications to new, independent research. Key featur es include: * An introduction to the main tools of MATLAB, as well as programs that move from relativelysimple ODE applications to more complex PDE models * Numerous applications to a wide range of subjects, including HIV and insulin treatments, populatio n dynamics, and stock management * Exploration of cutting-edge topics in laterchapters, such as optimal harvesting and optimal control of diffusive models, designed to stimulate further research and theses projects * Exercises in each chapter, allowing st udents a chance to work with MATLAB and achieve a bettergrasp of the applications * Minimal prerequisites: undergraduate-level calculus * Appendices with basic concepts and results from f

Title:The Role of Model Integration in Complex Systems Modelling [electronic resource] An Example from Cancer Biology

Note:Model integration the process by which different modelling efforts can be brought together to simulate the target system is a core technology in the field of Systems Biology. In the work presented here model integrationwas addressed directly taking cancer systems as an example. An in-depth literature review was carried out to survey the model forms and types currently being utilised. This was used to formalise the main challenges that modelintegration poses, namely that of paradigm (the formalism o n which a model is based), focus (the real-world system the model represents) and scale. A two-tier model integration strategy, including a knowledge-driven approach to addressmodel semantics, was developed to tackle these challenges. In the first step a novel description of models at the level of behaviour, rather than the precise mathematical or computational basis of the model, is developed by distillinga set of abstract classes and properties. These can accurately describe model behaviour and hence de scribe focus in a way that can be integrated with behavioural descriptions of other models. In the second step this behaviour isdecomposed into an agent-based system by translating the models into local interaction rules. The book provides a detailed and highly integrated presentation of the method, encompassing both its novel theoretical and practical aspects,which will enable the reader to practically apply it to their model integration needs in academic research and professional settings. The text is s elf-supporting. It also includes an in-depth current bibliography to relevant researchpapers and literature. The review of the current state of the art in tumour modelling provides added value

Title:Ubiquitous Quantum Structure [electronic resource] : From Psychology to Finance
Author(s): Andrei Y Khrennikov
Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Quantum-like structure is present practically everywhere. Quantum-like (QL) models, i.e. models based on the mathematical formalism of quantum mechanics and its generalizations can be successfully applied to cognitive science,psychology, genetics, ec onomics, finances, and game theory. This book is not about quantum mechanics as a physical theory. The short review of quantum postulates is therefore mainly of historical value: quantum mechanics is just thefirst example of the successful application of non-Kolmogorov probabilities, the first step towards a contextual probabilistic description of natural, biological, psychological, social, economical or financial phenomena. A generalcontextual probabilistic model (Vxj model) is presented. It can be used for describing probabilities in both quantum and classical (statistical) mechanics as well as in the above mentioned phenomena. This model can be representedin a quantum-like way, namely, in complex and more general Hilbert spaces. In this way quantum pro bability is totally demystified: Born's representation of quantum probabilities by complex probability amplitudes, wave functions, issimply a special representation of this type
