Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The work of E. Hopf and G.A. Hedlund, in the 1930s, on transitivity and ergodicity of the geodesic flow for hyperbolic surfaces, marked the beginning of the investigation of the statistical properties and stochastic behavior ofthe flow. The first cen tral limit theorem for the geodesic flow was proved in the 1960s by Y. Sinai for compact hyperbolic manifolds. Since then, strong relationships have been found between the fields of ergodic theory, analysis, andgeometry. Different approaches and new tools have been developed to study the geodesic flow, including measure theory, thermodynamic formalism, transfer operators, Laplace operators, and Brownian motion. All these different points ofview have led to a deep understanding of more general dynamical sy stems, in particular the so-called Anosov systems, with applications to geometric problems such as counting, equirepartition, mixing, and recurrence properties of theorbits. This book comprises two independent texts that provide a self-contained introduct ion to two different approaches to the investigation of hyperbolic dynamics. The first text, by S. Le Borgne, explains the method of martingalesfor the central limit theorem. This approach can be used in several situations, even for weakly hyperbolic flow s, and the author presents a good number of examples and applications to equirepartition and mixing. The second text, by F.Faure and M. Tsujii, concerns the semiclassical approach, by operator theory: chaotic dynamics is described through the spectrum of the associated transfer operator, with applications to the asymptotic counting of periodic orbits. Thebook will be of interest for a broad audience, from PhD and Post-Doc students to experts working on geometry and dynamics

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

Title:The Innovation Butterfly [electronic resource] Managing Emergent Opportunities and Risks During Distributed Innovation

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Product and service innovations are the result of mutually interacting creative and coordination tasks within a system that has to balance technical decisions, marketplace taste, personnel management, and stakeholder commitment.The constituent elemen ts of such systems are often scattered across multiple firms and across the globe and constitute a complex system consisting of many interacting parts. In the spirit of the butterfly effect, metaphoricallydescribing the sensitivity to initials conditions of chaotic systems, this book builds an argument that innovation butterflies can, in the short term, take up significant amounts of effort and sap efficiencies within individualinnovation projects. Such innovation butterflies can be prompted by external f orces such as government legislation or unexpected spikes in the price of basic goods (such as oil), unexpected shifts in market tastes, or from acompany managers decisions or those of its competitors. Even the smallest change, the smallest disruption, to this system can steer a firm down an unpredictable and irreversibly different path in terms of technology and marketevolution. In the long term, they can shift the balance of the entire innovation portfolio into unplanned directions. More importantly, we describe how innovation leaders can influence the emergent behavior of the system for good orill. The first half of the book draws parallels from physics, economics, and sociology as well as evidence from multiple industries to describe the structural an d behavioral causes of emergent phenomena in innovation settings as wellas their often negative impacts. In the second half of the book, we turn to distributed management of innovation under emergence. We show that innovation butterflies, if improperly ma naged, most often lead to negative outcomes. On theother hand, it is also argued that while the complexity of the innovation system and the desire to experiment and try new and emergent alterna

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:It is commonly believed that chaos is linked to non-linearity, however many (even quite natural) linear dynamical systems exhibit chaotic behavior. The study of these systems is a young and remarkably active field of research,which has seen many land mark results over the past two decades. Linear dynamics lies at the crossroads of several areas of mathematics including operator theory, complex analysis, ergodic theory and partial differential equations. Atthe same time its basic ideas can be easily un derstood by a wide audience. Written by two renowned specialists, Linear Chaos provides a welcome introduction to this theory. Split into two parts, part I presents a self-containedintroduction to the dynamics of linear operators, while part II covers sel ected, largely independent topics from linear dynamics. More than 350 exercises and many illustrations are included, and each chapter contains a furtherSources and Comments section. The only prerequisites are a familiarity with metric spaces, the basic th eory of Hilbert and Banach spaces and fundamentals of complex analysis. More advanced tools, only needed occasionally, areprovided in two appendices. A self-contained exposition, this book will be suitable for self-study and will appeal to advanced underg raduate or beginning graduate students. It will also be of use to researchers in other areas ofmathematics such as partial differential equations, dynamical systems and ergodic theory

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:At the end of the nineteenth century Lyapunov and Poincar developed the so called qualitative theory of differential equations and introduced geometric-topological considerations which have led to the concept of dynamicalsystems. In its present abstr act form this concept goes back to G.D. Birkhoff. This is also the starting point of Chapter 1 of this book in which uncontrolled and controlled time-continuous and time-discrete systems are investigated.Controlled dynamical systems could be considered as dynamical systems in the strong sense, if the controls were incorporated into the state space. We, however, adapt the conventional treatment of controlled systems as in controltheory. We are mainly interested in the question of controllability of dynamic al systems into equilibrium states. In the non-autonomous time-discrete case we also consider the problem of stabilization. We conclude with chaotic behaviorof autonomous time discrete systems and actual real-world applications

Title:Iterated Maps on the Interval as Dynamical Systems [electronic resource]

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Iterations of continuous maps of an interval to itself serve as the simplest examples of models for dynamical systems. These models present an interesting mathematical structure going far beyond the simple equilibrium solutionsone might expect. If, i n addition, the dynamical system depends on an experimentally controllable parameter, there is a corresponding mathematical structure revealing a great deal about interrelations between the behavior for differentparameter values. This work explains some o f the early results of this theory to mathematicians and theoretical physicists, with the additional hope of stimulating experimentalists to look for more of these general phenomena ofbeautiful regularity, which oftentimes seem to appear near the much les s understood chaotic systems. Although continuous maps of an interval to itself seem to have been first introduced to model biological systems, they can be found asmodels in most natural sciences as well as economics. Iterated Maps on the Interval as Dyna mical Systems is a classic reference used widely by researchers and graduate students in mathematics and physics, opening up some newperspectives on the study of dynamical systems .
