Title:Physics, Nature and Society [electronic resource] : A Guide to Order and Complexity in Our World
Author(s): Joaqun Marro
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This wide-ranging and accessible book serves as a fascinating guide to the strategies and concepts that help us understand the boundaries between physics, on the one hand, and sociology, economics, and biology on the other. Fromcooperation and critic ality to flock dynamics and fractals, the author addresses many of the topics belonging to the broad theme of complexity. He chooses excellent examples (requiring no prior mathematical knowledge) to illuminatethese ideas and their implications. The lively style and clear description of the relevant models will appeal both to novices and those with an existing knowledge of the field
Contents:A glance at the method
The automata
Chaotic and noisy
Critical worlds
Chance and necessity
Size does not always matter
Living things
Interacting humans

Title:Homo Novus A Human Without Illusions [electronic resource]

Note:Converging evidence from disciplines including sociobiology, evolutionary psychology and human biology forces us to adopt a new idea of what it means to be a human. As cherished concepts such as free will, nave realism, humansas creation's crowning g lory fall and our moral roots in ape group dynamics become clearer, we have to take leave of many concepts that have been central to defining our humanness. What emerges is a new human, the homo novus, a humanbeing without illusions. Leading authors from many different fields explore these issues by addressing these illusions and providing evidence for the need to switch to this new idea of man, in spite of understandable reluctance to letgo of our most beloved illusions

Title:Systems Biology [electronic resource] : International Research and Development
Author(s): MARVIN CASSMAN

DOUGLAS LAUFFENBURGER

Date:2007

Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Systems biology is defined for the purpose of this study as the understanding of biological network behaviors, and in particular their dynamic aspects, which requires the utilization of mathematical modeling tightly linked toexperiment. This involves a variety of approaches, such as the identification and validation of networks, the creation of appropriate datasets, the development of tools for data acquisition and software development, and the use ofmodeling and simulation software in close linkage with experiment. All of these are discussed in this volume. Of course, the definition becomes ambiguous at the margins, but at the core is the focus on networks, which makes it clearthat the goal is to understand the operation of the systems, rather than the component parts. It was concluded that the U.S. is currently ahead of the rest of the world in systems biology, largely because of earlier investment byfunding organizations and research institutions. This is reflected in a large number of active rese arch groups, and educational programs, and a diverse and growing funding base. However, there is evidence of rapid development outsidethe U.S., much of it begun in the last two to three years. Overall, however, the picture is of an active field in the ear ly stages of explosive growth. This volume is aimed at academic researchers, government research agencyrepresentatives and graduate students
