This text illustrates the roles of statistical methods, coordinate transformations, and mathematical analysis in mapping complex, unpredictable dynamical systems. It describes the benefits and limitations of the available modeling tools, showing engineers and scientists how any system can be rendered simpler and more predictable. Written by a well-known authority in the field, this volume employs practical examples and analogies to make models more meaningful. The more universal methods appear in considerable detail, and advanced dynamic principles feature easy-to-understand examples. The text draws careful distinctions between mathematical abstractions and observable realities. Additional topics include the role of pure mathematics, the limitations of numerical methods, forecasting in the presence of chaos and randomness, and dynamics without calculus. Specialized techniques and case histories are coordinated with a carefully selected and annotated bibliography. The original edition was a Library of Science Main Selection in May, 1991. This new Dover edition features corrections by the author and a new Preface.

This book is the first to report on theoretical breakthroughs on control of complex dynamical systems developed by collaborative researchers in the two fields of dynamical systems theory and control theory. As well, its basic point of view is of three kinds of complexity: bifurcation phenomena subject to model uncertainty, complex behavior including periodic/quasi-periodic orbits as well as chaotic orbits, and network complexity emerging from dynamical interactions between subsystems. Analysis and Control of Complex Dynamical Systems offers a valuable resource for mathematicians, physicists, and biophysicists, as well as for researchers in nonlinear science and control engineering, allowing them to develop a better fundamental understanding of the analysis and control synthesis of such complex systems.

This textbook is a self-contained and easy-to-read introduction to ergodic theory and the theory of dynamical systems, with a particular emphasis on chaotic dynamics. This book contains a broad selection of topics and explores the fundamental ideas of the subject. Starting with basic notions such as ergodicity, mixing, and isomorphisms of dynamical systems, the book then focuses on several chaotic transformations with hyperbolic dynamics, before moving on to topics such as entropy, information theory, ergodic decomposition and measurable partitions. Detailed explanations are accompanied by numerous examples, including interval maps, Bernoulli shifts, toral endomorphisms, geodesic flow on negatively curved manifolds, Morse-Smale systems, rational maps on the Riemann sphere and strange attractors. Ergodic Theory and Dynamical Systems will appeal to graduate students as well as researchers looking for an introduction to the subject. While gentle on the beginning student, the book also contains a number of comments for the more advanced reader.

The book addresses the problem of calculation of d-dimensional integrals (conditional expectations) in filter problems. It develops new methods of deterministic numerical integration, which can be used to speed up and stabilize filter algorithms. With the help of these methods, better estimates and predictions of latent variables are made possible in the fields of economics, engineering and physics. The resulting procedures are tested within four detailed simulation studies.

"A rigorous and lively introduction . . . careful and lucid . . ."--The American Mathematical Monthly. Excellent hardcover edition. This concise and idea-rich introduction to a topic of perennial interest in mathematics is written so clearly and lucidly, it is well within the reach of senior mathematics students. It covers mainly existence theorems for first-order scalar and vector equations, basic properties of linear vector equations, and two-dimensional nonlinear autonomous systems. Throughout, the emphasis is on geometric methods. Witold Hurewicz was a world-class mathematician whose untimely death in 1956 deprived the mathematics community of one of its leading lights. His contributions to dimension theory, homotopy and other topics are outlined by Professor Solomon Lefschetz in a prefatory article "Witold Hurewicz in Memoriam" included in this volume. Also included is a list of books on differential equations for those interested in further reading, and a bibliography of Hurewicz's published works. Unabridged Dover republication of the work originally published by MIT Press, 1958. Prefatory article "Witold Hurewicz in Memoriam" by Solomon Lefschetz. List of References. Index. 26 figures.

Dieses Lehr- und Handbuch behandelt sowohl die elementaren Konzepte als auch die fortgeschrittenen und zukunftsweisenden linearen und nichtlinearen FE-Methoden in Statik, Dynamik, Festkörper- und Fluidmechanik. Es wird sowohl der physikalische als auch der mathematische Hintergrund der Prozeduren ausführlich und verständlich beschrieben. Das Werk enthält eine Vielzahl von ausgearbeiteten Beispielen, Rechnerübungen und Programmlisten. Als Übersetzung eines erfolgreichen amerikanischen Lehrbuchs hat es sich in zwei Auflagen auch bei den deutschsprachigen Ingenieuren etabliert. Die umfangreichen Änderungen gegenüber der Vorauflage innerhalb aller Kapitel - vor allem aber der fortgeschrittenen - spiegeln die rasche Entwicklung innerhalb des letzten Jahrzehnts auf diesem Gebiet wieder.

Dieses Buch wendet sich zuallererst an intelligente Schüler ab 14 Jahren sowie an Studienanfänger, die sich für Mathematik interessieren und etwas mehr als die Anfangsgründe dieser Wissenschaft kennenlernen möchten. Es gibt inzwischen mehrere Bücher, die eine ähnliche Zielstellung verfolgen. Besonders gern erinnere ich mich an das Werk Vom Einmaleins zum Integral von Colerus, das ich in meiner Kindheit las. Es beginnt mit der folgenden entschiedenen Feststellung: Die Mathematik ist eine Mausefalle. Wer einmal in dieser Falle gefangen sitzt, findet selten den Ausgang, der zurück in seinen vormathematischen Seelenzustand leitet. ([49], S. 7) Einige dieser Bücher sind im Anhang zusammengestellt und kommen tiert. Tatsächlich ist das Unternehmen aber so lohnenswert und die Anzahl der schon vorhandenen Bücher doch so begrenzt, daß ich mich nicht scheue, ihnen ein weiteres hinzuzufügen. An zahlreichen amerikanischen Universitäten gibt es Vorlesungen, die gemeinhin oder auch offiziell als ,,Mathematik für Schöngeister'' firmieren. Dieser Kategorie ist das vorliegende Buch nicht zuzuordnen. Statt dessen soll es sich um eine ,,Mathematik für Mathematiker'' handeln, für Mathema tiker freilich, die noch sehr wenig von der Mathematik verstehen. Weshalb aber sollte nicht der eine oder andere von ihnen eines Tages den Autor dieses 1 Buches durch seine Vorlesungen in Staunen versetzen? Ich hoffe, daß auch meine Mathematikerkollegen Freude an dem Werk haben werden, und ich würde mir wünschen, daß auch andere Leser, bei denen die Wertschätzung für die Mathematik stärker als die Furcht vor ihr ist, Gefallen an ihm finden mögen.
