Toward a science of consciousness II the second Tucson discussions and debates by Tucson discussions and debates( )
8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Toward a Science of Consciousness marks the first major gathering - a landmark event - devoted entirely to unlocking the mysteries of consciousness. It explores the whole spectrum of approaches, from philosophy of mind and dream research to neuropsychology, pharmacology, and molecular dynamics, neural networks, phenomenological accounts, and even the physics of reality. The aim is to lay a sound scientific foundation for future research while also reaching consensus on many scattered areas of inquiry."--Jacket
Stairway to the mind : the controversial new science of consciousness by Alwyn Scott( Book )
9 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and Japanese and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Stairway to the Mind explores one of the most exciting and controversial areas of modern science: consciousness and the nature of the mind. The book proposes that consciousness emerges from hierarchical layers of mental reality, in the same way that life emerges from layers of biological reality. The book is aimed at general readers with an interest in the mind and neuroscience, as well as a wide range of scientists whose work is related to the rapidly-growing field of neuroscience and consciousness research
Neuroscience a mathematical primer by Alwyn Scott( )
15 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This title gives the reader a qualitative understanding and working knowledge of useful mathematical applications to the field of neuroscience. It should be of interest to anyone who wishes to know what roles mathematics can play in attempting to comprehend the dynamics of a human brain
The nonlinear universe chaos, emergence, life by Alwyn Scott( )
15 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Nonlinear Universe surveys and explores the explosion of activity in nonlinear science that began in the 1970s and 1980s and continues today. The book explains the wide-ranging implications of nonlinear phenomena for future developments in many areas of modern science, including mathematics, physics, engineering, chemistry, biology, and neuroscience. Arguably as important as quantum theory, modern nonlinear science - and an appreciation of its implications - is essential for understanding scientific developments of the twenty-first century."--Jacket
Encyclopedia of nonlinear science by Alwyn Scott( Book )
9 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 438 alphabetically arranged essays, this work provides a useful overview of the core mathematical background for nonlinear science, as well as its applications to key problems in ecology and biological systems, chemical reaction-diffusion problems, geophysics, economics, electrical and mechanical oscillations in engineering systems, lasers and nonlinear optics, fluid mechanics and turbulence, and condensed matter physics, among others. Designed for students and new researchers, as well as established nonlinear scientists interested applying methods outside their own specialized areas, this is the definitive introductory reference to all aspects of nonlinear science.

Nonlinear science at the dawn of the 21st century by Peter L Christiansen( Book )
10 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nonlinear science is by now a well established field of research at the interface of many traditional disciplines and draws on the theoretical concepts developed in physics and mathematics. The present volume gathers the contributions of leading scientists to give the state of the art in many areas strongly influenced by nonlinear research, such as superconduction, optics, lattice dynamics, biology and biomolecular dynamics. While this volume is primarily intended for researchers working in the field care, has been taken that it will also be of benefit to graduate students or nonexpert scientist wishing to familiarize themselves with the current status of research

Pulse propagation on a superconductive neuristor by S. A Reible( Book )
6 editions published between 1974 and 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Both analytic study and experimental investigations on an electronic analog are presented which indicate the unstable nature of Parmentier's traveling wave pulse on a superconductive neuristor. In the vicinity of a critical bias level, the pulse is almost stable in the sense that pulse distortion over a finite distance can be made arbitrarily small by adjusting the bias to be sufficiently close to the critical value. It is also shown that the strength-duration curve for threshold excitation can be obtained by equating input magnetic flux to that of Parmentier's pulse. Finally an R - T junction has been realized by resistive coupling of two neuristor lines and used to introduce a circulating pulse onto a storage ring
Future directions of nonlinear dynamics in physical and biological systems : in honor of Alwyn C. Scott : a selection of articles presented at the conference honoring Alwyn C. Scott on the occasion of his 60th birthday, the Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby, Denmark, 23 July-1 August 1992 by NATO Advanced Study Institute on Future Directions of Nonlinear Dynamics in Physical and Biological Systems( Book )

An inverse scattering transform for wave-wave scattering by Flora Y. F Chu( Book )
5 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An inverse scattering transform method is outlined for the resonant interaction of two plane waves (an incident wave of amplitude (A sub 1) and radian frequency (Omega sub 1) and a scattered wave of amplitude (A sub 2) and frequency (Omega sub 2) with a medium which can propagate a classical scattering waves (of amplutude Y and frequency (Omega sub 3). The inverse scattering transform method can be veiwed as a nonlinear generalization of the Fourier transform method, and, in the form presented here, it describes the dynamics of the scattering medium Y(x, t). The results can be applied to a variety of physical problems including: (1) Raman and Brillouin scattering of laser light, (2) electromagnetic wave-wave interactions in a plasma, and (3) the distributed parametric amplifier
Neurodynamics : (a critical survey) by Alwyn Scott( Book )
5 editions published in 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Following a brief introduction to the functional complexity of an individual nerve cell, the current status of neural network dynamics is reviewed. This survey is then used as a basis for suggesting some fundamental difficulties in developing a science of the human mind. (Author)
