About this book

Introduction

From Hamiltonian Chaos to Complex Systems: A Nonlinear Physics Approach collects contributions on recent developments in non-linear dynamics and statistical physics with an emphasis on complex systems. This book provides a wide range of state-of-the-art research in these fields. The unifying aspect of this book is a demonstration of how similar tools coming from dynamical systems, nonlinear physics, and statistical dynamics can lead to a large panorama of  research in various fields of physics and beyond, most notably with the perspective of application in complex systems.

This book also:

Illustrates the broad research influence of tools coming from dynamical systems, nonlinear physics, and statistical dynamics

Adopts a pedagogic approach to facilitate understanding by non-specialists and students

Presents applications in complex systems

Includes 150 illustrations

From Hamiltonian Chaos to Complex Systems: A Nonlinear Physics Approach is an ideal book for graduate students and researchers working in applied mathematics, mechanical engineering, nonlinear physics, and out of equilibrium statistical physics.
