Title:Complexity Perspectives on Language, Communication and Society [electronic resource]

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The language-communication-society triangle defies traditional scientific approaches. Rather, it is a phenomenon that calls for an integration of complex, transdisciplinary perspectives, if we are to make any progress inunderstanding how it works. Th e highly diverse agents in play are not merely cognitive and/or cultural, but also emotional and behavioural in their specificity. Indeed, the effort may require building a theoretical and methodologicalbody of knowledge that can effectively convey the ch aracteristic properties of phenomena in human terms. New complexity approaches allow us to rethink our limited and mechanistic images of human societies and create more appropriateemo-cognitive dynamic and holistic models. We have to enter into dialogue w ith the complexity views coming out of other more material sciences, but we also need to take steps in the linguistic and psycho-sociological fieldstowards creating perspectives and concepts better fitted to human characteristics. Our understanding of com plexity is different but not opposed to the one that is more commonly found in texts written by people working inphysics or computer science, for example. The goal of this book is to extend the knowledge of these other more human or socially oriented pe rspectives on complexity, taking account of the language and communication singularitiesof human agents in society.

Title:Advances in Network Analysis and its Applications [electronic resource]
Author(s): Evangelos Kranakis
Date:2013
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:As well as highlighting potentially useful applications for network analysis, this volume identifies new targets for mathematical research that promise to provide insights into network systems theory as well as facilitating thecross-fertilization of ideas between sectors. Focusing on financial, security and social aspects of networking, the volume adds to the growing body of evidence showing that network analysis has applications to transportation,communication, health, finance, and social policy mor e broadly. It provides powerful models for understanding the behavior of complex systems that, in turn, will impact numerous cutting-edge sectors in science and engineering, such aswireless communication, network security, distributed computing and social networking, financial analysis, and cyber warfare. The volume offers an insider' s view of cutting-edge research in network systems, including methodologieswith immense potential for interdisciplinary application. The contributors have all presented mate rial at a series of workshops organized on behalf of Canadas MITACS initiative, which funds projects and study grants inmathematics for information technology and complex systems. These proceedings include papers from workshops on financial networks, netw ork security and cryptography, and social networks. MITACS has shown that the partlyghettoized nature of network systems research has led to duplicated work in discrete fields, and thus this initiative has the potential to save time and accelerate the pac e of research in a number of areas of network systemsresearch

Edition:2nd ed. 2013
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
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.

Title:Algorithmic Randomness and Complexity [electronic resource]
Author(s): Rodney G Downey
Denis R Hirschfeldt
Date:2010
Edition:1
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Intuitively, a sequence such as 101010101010101010 does not seem random, whereas 101101011101010100, obtained using coin tosses, does. How can we reconcile this intuition with the fact that both are statistically equallylikely? What does it mean to s ay that an individual mathematical object such as a real number is random, or to say that one real is more random than another? And what is the relationship between randomness and computational power. Thetheory of algorithmic randomness uses tools from co mputability theory and algorithmic information theory to address questions such as these. Much of this theory can be seen as exploring the relationships between three fundamentalconcepts: relative computability, as measured by notions such as Turing reduc ibility information content, as measured by notions such as Kolmogorov complexity and randomness of individual objects, as first successfully defined byMartin-Lf. Although algorithmic randomness has been studied for several decades, a dramatic upsurge of interest in the area, starting in the late 1990s, has led to significant advances. This is the first comprehensive treatment ofthis important field, designed to be both a reference tool for experts and a guide for newcomers. It surveys a broad section of work in the area, and presents most of its major results and techniques in depth. Its organization isdesigned to guide the reader through this large body of work, providing context for its many concepts and theorems, discussing their significance, and hig hlighting their interactions. It includes a discussion of effective dimension,which allows us to assign concepts like Hausdorff dimension to individual reals, and a focused but detailed introduction to computability theory. It will be of interest to resea rchers and students in computability theory, algorithmicinformation theory, and theoretical computer science

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Organic Computing is a research field emerging around the conviction that problems of organization in complex systems in computer science, telecommunications, neurobiology, molecular biology, ethology, and possibly even sociologycan be tackled scient ifically in a unified way. From the computer science point of view, the apparent ease in which living systems solve computationally difficult problems makes it inevitable to adopt strategies observed in nature forcreating information processing machinery. In this book, the major ideas behind Organic Computing are delineated, together with a sparse sample of computational projects undertaken in this new field. Biological metaphors includeevolution, neural networks, gene-regulatory networks, networks of bra in modules, hormone system, insect swarms, and ant colonies. Applications are as diverse as system design, optimization, artificial growth, task allocation,clustering, routing, face recognition, and sign language understanding

Note:Computational Neuroscience is a burgeoning field of research where only the combined effort of neuroscientists, biologists, psychologists, physicists, mathematicians, computer scientists, engineers and other specialists, e.g.from linguistics and medi cine, seem to be able to expand the limits of our knowledge. The present volume is an introduction, largely from the physicists' perspective, to the subject matter with in-depth contributions by systemneuroscientists. A conceptual model for complex networ ks of neurons is introduced that incorporates many important features of the real brain, such as various types of neurons, various brain areas, inhibitory and excitatory couplingand the plasticity of the network. The computational implementation on superc omputers, which is introduced and discussed in detail in this book, will enable the readers to modify and adapt the algortihm for their own research.Worked-out examples of applications are presented for networks of Morris-Lecar neurons to model the cortic al connections of a cat's brain, supported with data from experimental studies. This book is particularly suited for graduatestudents and nonspecialists from related fields with a general science background, looking for a substantial but hands-on introduc tion to the subject matter

Note:Complex plasmas are dusty plasmas in which the density and electric charges of the dust grains are sufficiently high to induce long-range grain-grain interactions, as well as strong absorption of charged-plasma components.Together with the sources re plenishing the plasma such systems form a highly dissipative thermodynamically open system that exhibits many features of collective behaviour generally found in complex systems. Most notably among them areself-organized patterns such as plasma crystals, plasma clusters, dust stars and further spectacular new structures. Beyond their intrinsic scientific interest, the study of complex plasmas grows in importance in a great variety offields, ranging from space-plasma sciences to applied fields such as plas ma processing, thin-film deposition and even the production of computer chips by plasma etching, in which strongly interacting clouds of complex plasmas can causemajor contamination of the final product. Intended as first introductory but comprehensive su rvey of this rapidly emerging field, the present book addresses postgraduate students as well as specialist and nonspecialist researchers witha general background in either plasma physics, space sciences or the physics of complex systems

Title:Numerical Techniques for Chemical and Biological Engineers Using MATLAB [electronic resource] : A Simple Bifurcation Approach

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This is a textbook for undergraduate students of chemical and biological engineering. It is also useful for graduate students, professional engineers and numerical analysts. All reactive chemical and biological processes arehighly nonlinear allowing for multiple steady states. This book addresses the bifurcation characteristics of chemical and biological processes as the general case and treats systems with a unique steady state as special cases. It usesa system approach which is the most efficient f or knowledge organization and transfer. The book develops mathematical models for many commercial processes utilizing the mass-, momentum-, and heat-balance equations coupled to the ratesof the processes that take place within the boundaries of the system . The models are solved numerically through MATLAB codes with emphasis on the design and optimization of the chemical and biological industrial equipment and plants,such as single and batteries of CSTRs, porous and nonporous catalyst pellets and their eff ectiveness factors, tubular catalytic and noncatalytic reactors, fluidized bed catalytic reactors, coupled fluidized beds such asreactor-regenerator systems (industrial fluid catalytic cracking units), fluidized bed reformers for producing hydrogen or syn gas, fermenters for fuel ethanol, simulation of the brain acetylcholine neurocycle, anaerobic digesters, co-and countercurrent absorption columns, and many more. The book also includes verification against industrial data. The algorithms include solving t ranscendental and algebraic equations, with and without bifurcation as well as initialand boundary value ordinary differential equations.

Title:Molecular and Cellular Signaling [electronic resource]
Author(s): Martin Beckerman
Date:2005
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:A small number of signaling pathways, no more than a dozen or so, form a control layer that is responsible for all signaling in and between cells of the human body. The signaling proteins belonging to the control layer determinewhat kinds of cells ar e made during development and how they function during adult life. Malfunctions in the proteins belonging to the control layer are responsible for a host of human diseases ranging from neurological disorders tocancers. Most drugs target components in the control layer, and difficulties in drug design are intimately related to the architecture of the control layer. Molecular and Cellular Signaling provides an introduction to molecular andcellular signaling in biological systems with an emphasis on the unde rlying physical principles. The text is aimed at upper-level undergraduates, graduate students and individuals in medicine and pharmacology interested in broadeningtheir understanding of how cells regulate and coordinate their core activities and how dise ases arise when these regulatory systems malfunction, as well as those in chemistry, physics and computer science interested in pursuing careersin biological and medical physics, bioinformatics and systems biology. To that end, the book includes backgroun d information and review sections, and chapters on signaling in the immune, endocrine (hormonal) and nervous systems. It haschapters on cancer, apoptosis and gene regulation, and contains chapters on bacteria and viruses. In those chapters not specificall y devoted to pathogens, connections between diseases, drugs and signaling are made. Each chapter alsofeatures a problem set to facilitate further discussion and understanding.
