 Publisher's Summary
 Adopting a crossdisciplinary approach, the review character of this monograph sets it apart from specialized journals. The editor is advised by a firstclass board of international scientists, such that the carefully selected and invited contributions represent the latest and most relevant findings. The resulting review enables both researchers and newcomers in life science, physics, and chemistry to access the most important results in this field, using a common language. Volume I covers the following topics: Nonlinear Dynamics Nanomechanical and Micromechanical Resonators; Delay Stabilization of Rotating Waves Without Odd Number Limitation; Random Boolean Networks; Return Intervals and Extreme Events in Persistent Time Series with Applications to Climate and Seismic Records; Factorizable Language: From Dynamics to Biology; and, Controlling Collective Synchrony by Feedback.

The editor is advised by a firstclass board of international scientists, such that the carefully selected and invited contributions represent the latest and most relevant findings. The resulting review uses a common language and enables both researchers and newcomers in both natural and social science as well as engineering to access the most important results on the following topics: epidemic dynamics on adaptive networks; forecast and control of epidemics; community detection in networks; control of excitable media; caustics; evolution of cooperation; and econophysics.
(source: Nielsen Book Data)9783527408504 20160528  Written in a style that breaks the barriers between the disciplines, this monograph enables researchers from life science, physics, engineering, or chemistry to access the most recent results in a common language. The resulting review character of this project sets it apart from specialized journals, and allows each volume to respond quickly to new developments. This third volume contains new topics ranging from chaotic computing, via random dice tossing and stochastic limitcycle oscillators, to a number theoretic example of selforganized criticality, wave localization in complex networks and anomalous diffusion. A firstclass board of international scientists advises the editor, such that the carefully selected and invited contributions represent the latest and most relevant findings.
