Chaos and Complexity Research Compendium. Volume 1 $95.00
Editors: Franco F. Orsucci, (University College, London) Nicoletta Sala (University of Italy in Switzerland)
Book Description:
This new book presents leading-edge research on artificial life, cellular automata, chaos theory, cognition, complexity theory, synchronization, fractals, genetic algorithms, information systems, metaphors, neural networks, non-linear dynamics, parallel computation and synergetics. The unifying feature of this research is the tie to chaos and complexity.
