An Introduction to Complex Systems: Society, Ecology, and Nonlinear Dynamics

An Introduction to Complex Systems: Society, Ecology, and Nonlinear Dynamics by Paul Fieguth
English | 16 Dec. 2016 | ISBN: 3319446053 | 360 Pages | PDF | 17.23 MB

This undergraduate text explores a variety of large-scale phenomena - global warming, ice ages, water, poverty - and uses these case studies as a motivation to explore nonlinear dynamics, power-law statistics, and complex systems. Although the detailed mathematical descriptions of these topics can be challenging, the consequences of a system being nonlinear, power-law, or complex are in fact quite accessible.
