Engineering of chemical complexity by A. S Mikhailov( )

30 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 2,708 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This review volume, co-edited by Nobel laureate G Ertl, provides a broad overview on current studies in the understanding of design and control of complex chemical systems of various origins, on scales ranging from single molecules and nano-phenomena to macroscopic chemical reactors. Self-organizational behavior and the emergence of coherent collective dynamics in reaction-diffusion systems, reactive soft matter and chemical networks are covered. Special attention is paid to the applications in molecular cell biology and to the problems of biological evolution, synthetic biology and design of artificial living cells. Starting with a detailed introduction on the history of research on complex chemical systems, its current state of the art and perspectives, the book comprises 19 chapters that survey the current progress in particular research fields. The reviews, prepared by leading international experts, yield together a fascinating picture of a rapidly developing research discipline that brings chemical engineering to new frontiers
Emergence of dynamical order : synchronization phenomena in complex systems by Susanna C Manrubia( )

23 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides a review and a detailed theoretical analysis of synchronization phenomena in complex systems with different architectures, composed of elements with periodic or chaotic individual dynamics. Special attention is paid to statistical concepts, such as nonequilibrium phase transitions, order parameters and dynamical glasses."--BOOK JACKET
Networks of interacting machines : production organization in complex industrial systems and biological cells by Dieter Armbruster( )

17 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This review volume is devoted to a discussion of analogies and differences of complex production systems natural, as in biological cells, or man-made, as in economic systems or industrial production. Taking this unified look at production is based on two observations: Cells and many biological networks are complex production units that have evolved to solve production problems in a reliable and optimal way in a highly stochastic environment. On the other hand, industrial production is becoming increasingly complex and often hard to predict. As a result, modeling and control of such productio
From cells to societies : models of complex coherent action by A. S Mikhailov( Book )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and German and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book addresses researchers and graduate students in a variety of disciplines, such as physics, chemistry, biology and the social sciences."--Jacket
Foundations of synergetics by A. S Mikhailov( Book )

30 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in English and German and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This textbook is based on a lecture course in synergetics given at the University of Moscow. In this second of two volumes, we discuss the emergence and properties of complex chaotic patterns in distributed active systems. Such patterns can be produced autonomously by a system, or can result from selective amplification of fluctuations caused by external weak noise. Although the material in this book is often described by refined mathematical theories, we have tried to avoid a formal mathematical style. Instead of rigorous proofs, the reader will usually be offered only "demonstrations" (the term used by Prof. V. I. Arnold) to encourage intuitive understanding of a problem and to explain why a particular statement seems plausible. We also refrained from detailing concrete applications in physics or in other scientific fields, so that the book can be used by students of different disciplines. While preparing the lecture course and producing this book, we had intensive discussions with and asked the advice of Prof. V. I. Arnold, Prof. S. Grossmann, Prof. H. Haken, Prof. Yu. L. Klimontovich, Prof. R. L. Stratonovich and Prof. Ya
Chemical complexity : self-organization processes in molecular systems by A. S Mikhailov( )

12 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an outline of theoretical concepts and their experimental verification in studies of self-organization phenomena in chemical systems, as they emerged in the mid-20th century and have evolved since. Presenting essays on selected topics, it was prepared by authors who have made profound contributions to the field. Traditionally, physical chemistry has been concerned with interactions between atoms and molecules that produce a variety of equilibrium structures - or the 'dead' order - in a stationary state. But biological cells exhibit a different 'living' kind of order, prompting E. Schrödinger to pose his famous question "What is life?" in 1943. Through an unprecedented theoretical and experimental development, it was later revealed that biological self-organization phenomena are in complete agreement with the laws of physics, once they are applied to a special class of thermodynamically open systems and non-equilibrium states. This knowledge has in turn led to the design and synthesis of simple inorganic systems capable of self-organization effects. These artificial 'living organisms' are able to operate on macroscopic to microscopic scales, even down to single-molecule machines. In the future, such research could provide a basis for a technological breakthrough, comparable in its impact with the invention of lasers and semiconductors. Its results can be used to control natural chemical processes, and to design artificial complex chemical processes with various functionalities. The book offers an extensive discussion of the history of research on complex chemical systems and its future prospects. Gerhard Ertl received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2007 for his studies on heterogeneous catalysis and self-organization processes in surface chemical reactions. He was the director of the Physical Chemistry department at the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society in Berlin, where he is currently a Professor Emeritus. Prof. Alexander S. Mikhailov, of the same institute, is a theoretical physicist who has been working with G. Ertl for more than twenty years. He is the author of three monographs published by Springer and was awarded the International Solvay Chair in Chemistry in 2009. Together, the authors initiated and organized a series of international conferences on "Engineering of Chemical Complexity"
Interdisciplinary approaches to nonlinear complex systems by H Haken( Book )

8 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nonlinear dynamics is now recognized as playing a crucial role in a wide variety of disciplines. But what is only just beginning is the important process of cross fertilization and transfer of knowledge and expertise from one area to another. This book is intended to promote this process which will undoubtedly contribute greatly to furthering our understanding of complex systems. Contributions are provided by leading experts from the areas of sociology, cognitive science, chemistry, physiology, ecology, economics, neural networks and physics
Foundations of synergetics by A. S Mikhailov( Book )

40 editions published between 1990 and 1994 in English and German and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This textbook presents an introduction to the mathematical theory of cooperative behavior in active systems of various origin, both natural and artificial. This volume (the first of two) is devoted to the properties of regular self-organized patterns in distributed active systems. An analysis of pattern formation and self-supported wave propagation in active media is followed by a description of the properties of neural networks and their possible applications in the field of distributed analog information processing. The volume ends with a discussion of reproductive networks and evolutionary systems. Attention is focused on basic models which might appear in a wide range of applications. As illustrations, the author uses simplified examples borrowed from a variety of disciplines ranging from chemical and biological physics to market economics
