Thinking in patterns fractals and related phenomena in nature by M. M Novak ( )
9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fractal geometry, together with the broader fields of nonlinear dynamics and complexity, represented a large segment of modern science at the end of the 20th century. Penetration of the resulting new paradigms into practically all academic disciplines has confirmed the fundamental assertion of universal formalism common to a wide range of human endeavors. This book contains an extended article by B B Mandelbrot, reviewing his contribution to fractal geometry and outlining some unsolved problems, with illustrations especially of finance and physics. It covers a range of multidisciplinary topics
Complexus mundi emergent patterns in nature by M. M Novak ( )
13 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This important book reviews applications of optimization and optimal control theory to modern problems in physics, nano-science and finance. The theory presented here can be efficiently applied to various problems, such as the determination of the optimal shape of a laser pulse to induce certain excitations in quantum systems, the optimal design of nanostructured materials and devices, or the control of chaotic systems and minimization of the forecast error for a given forecasting model (for example, artificial neural networks). Starting from a brief review of the history of variational calculus, the book discusses optimal control theory and global optimization using modern numerical techniques. Key elements of chaos theory and basics of fractional derivatives, which are useful in control and forecast of complex dynamical systems, are presented. The coverage includes several interdisciplinary problems to demonstrate the efficiency of the presented algorithms, and different methods of f
Emergent nature patterns, growth and scaling in the sciences by M. M Novak ( )
16 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 1,097 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book, based on presentations made at the international conference Fractals 2002, is of interest to everyone in the general field of nonlinear dynamics. The abundance of papers from numerous disciplines makes it exciting reading and provides a unifying thread through the topics, such as ray tracing, structure of peptides, modeling fractal surfaces, cancer growth, macaque monkey cortical neurons, occurrence of earthquakes, and patterns of the World Wide Web. Contents: Modeling Cerebellar Dynamics (M G Velarde et al.); Two and Three Dimensional Computer Simulation of Cancer Growth (S Flores

Paradigms of complexity : fractals and structures in the sciences ( Book )
5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This document contains all accepted papers to Fractal 2000, the 6th International Multidisciplinary Conference, held 16-19 April 2000 in Singapore. One of the aims of the conference was to review the current status in the field of fractals within realm of complexity and to explore future directions. There is a plenitude of examples in nature displaying complex patterns. The couplings responsible for these intricate patterns give rise to processes and phenomena that are absent when couplings are not present. The universality of such systems can be observed over a wide range of scales, from sub-atomic domain to that of cosmology. Furthermore, in addition to physics, mathematics, and chemistry, where these phenomena were observed first, the existence of complex systems has been confirmed in many disciplines such as medicine, biology, economics and sociology. The underlying geometry is frequently non-Euclidean and can be best analyzed using the tools of fractal analysis
