From Instability to Intelligence Complexity and Predictability in Nonlinear Dynamics

This book deals with predictability and dynamical concepts in biology and physics. The main emphasis is on intrinsic stochasticity caused by the instability of dynamical equations. In particular, the authors present for the first time in book form their concept of terminal dynamics. They demonstrate...
