Introduces graduate students and nonspecialists from various backgrounds to the field of mathematical and computational neurosciences.

Information and self-organization a macroscopic approach to complex systems by H Haken ( Book )
48 editions published between 1988 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,011 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book presents the concepts needed to deal with self- organizing complexsystems from a unifying point of view that uses macroscopic data. The meanings of "information" are discussed. A general formulation of the maximum inform- ation (entropy) principle is used. With aid of synergetics adequate objective constraints for a large class of systems are formulated and examples are given from physics and biology
Molecular physics and elements of quantum chemistry : introduction to experiments and theory by H Haken ( Book )
47 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 904 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This textbook introduces the molecular physics and quantum chemistry needed to understand the physical properties of molecules and their chemical bonds. It follows the authors' earlier textbook "The Physics of Atoms and Quanta" and presents both experimental and theoretical fundamentals for students in physics and physical and theoretical chemistry. The new edition treats new developments in areas such as high-resolution two-photon spectroscopy, ultrashort pulse spectroscopy, photoelectron spectroscopy. Particular emphasis is laid on the optical investigation of single molecules in condensed phase. Finally, the developing field of molecular electronics is presented, including electroluminescence and light-emitting diodes

Synergetic computers and cognition : a top-down approach to neural nets by H Haken ( Book )
17 editions published between 1990 and 2004 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book presents a novel approach to neural nets and thus offers a genuine alternative to the hitherto known neuro-computers. This approach is based on the author's discovery of the profound analogy between pattern recognition and pattern formation in open systems far from equilibrium. Thus the mathematical and conceptual tools of synergetics can be exploited, and the concept of the synergetic computer formulated. A complete and rigorous theory of pattern recognition and learning is presented. The resulting algorithm can be implemented on serial computers or realized by fully parallel nets whereby no spurious states occur. Explicit examples (recognition of faces and city maps) are provided. The recognition process is made invariant with respect to simultaneous translation, rotation, and scaling, and allows the recognition of complex scenes. Oscillations and hysteresis in the perception of ambiguous patterns are treated, as well as the recognition of movement patterns. A comparison between the recognition abilities of humans and the synergetic computer sheds new light on possible models of mental processes. The synergetic computer can also perform logical steps such as the XOR operation. The new edition includes a section on transformation properties of the equations of the synergetic computer and on the invariance properties of the order parameter equations. Further additions are a new section on stereopsis and recent developments in the use of pulse-coupled neural nets for pattern recognition
Synergetic agents from multi-robot systems to molecular robotics by H Haken ( )
8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book addresses both multi robot systems and miniaturization to the nanoscale from a unifying point of view, but without leaving aside typical particularities of either. The unifying aspect is based on the concept of information minimization whose precise formulation is the Haken-Levi-principle. The authors introduce basic concepts of multi-component self-organizing systems such as order parameters (well known from equilibrium and non-equilibrium phase transitions) and the slaving principle (which establishes a link to dynamical systems). Among explicit examples is the docking manoeuvre of two robots in two and three dimensions. The second part of the book deals with the rather recently arising field of molecular robotics. It is particularly here where nature has become a highly influential teacher for the construction of robots. In living biological cells astounding phenomena occur: there are molecules (proteins) that literally walk on polymer strands and transport loads that are heavier than their carriers, or molecules that, by joint action, contract muscles. The book provides the reader with an insight into these phenomena, especially by a detailed theoretical treatment of the molecular mechanism of muscle contraction." --

Principles of brain functioning : a synergetic approach to brain activity, behavior, and cognition by H Haken ( Book )
9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book presents a new understanding of brain activity. Based on the general results of synergetics, the brain is conceived as a complex self-organizing system with emergent properties. This approach is elaborated upon by numerous explicit models that are based on and checked by detailed experiments on movement control, on various results on vision and on EEG and MEG analysis. The book provides newcomers to brain research with an introductory chapter on the experimental exploration of the brain and provides newcomers to synergetics with detailed and easy-to-read chapters on the basic concepts and theoretical tools of this field

The Machine as metaphor and tool by H Haken ( Book )
10 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The machine metaphor is deeply rooted in western culture and complex systemsin nature and society are often interpreted in such terms. With the advent of electronic computers, the machine metaphor applied to thinking and to thebrain has become even more pertinent. The idea of a machine has itself changed over time. In this book these transformations are made transparent, various aspects of the machine metaphor are discussed and limitations and pitfalls of the metaphor are elaborated. The chapters are written in a non-technical fashion and are accessible to a large audience ofscientists and also to laymen interested in the scientific perspectives and logical foundations of the machine concept that has been so influential in western thinking
Neural and synergetic computers : proceedings of the International Symposium at Schloss Elmau, Bavaria, June 13-17, 1988 by International Symposium on Neural and Synergetic Computers ( Book )
10 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Neural and Synergetic Computers deals with basic aspect of this rapidly developing field. Several contributions are devoted to the application of basic concepts of synergetics and dynamic systems theory to the constructionof neural computers. Further topics include statistical approaches to neural computers and their design (for example by sparse coding), perception motor control, and new types of spatial multistability in lasers
