Does God Play Dice? The New Mathematics of Chaos

Does God Play Dice? The New Mathematics of Chaos Lowest new price: $50.00
Lowest used price: $4.55
List price: $26.95
Author: Ian Stewart
Brand: Wiley-Blackwell

The revised and updated edition includes three completely new chapters on the prediction and control of chaotic systems. It also incorporates new information regarding the solar system and an account of complexity theory. This witty, lucid and engaging book makes the complex mathematics of chaos accessible and entertaining.

  • Presents complex mathematics in an accessible style.
  • Includes three new chapters on prediction in chaotic systems, control of chaotic systems, and on the concept of chaos.
  • Provides a discussion of complexity theory.

We'd better get used to chaos because it certainly isn't going anywhere. Mathematician Ian Stewart--who is also a very talented writer--shares his insights into the history and nature of the highly complex in Does God Play Dice: The New Mathematics of Chaos. While his delightful phrasings will draw in nearly every reader, those with a strong aversion to figures and formulae should understand that it will be slow going. Chaos math suffuses everything from dreaming to the motion of the planets, and Stewart's words can never match the precision of his numbers. Persistence pays off, though; there are so many "aha" moments of insight herein that it almost qualifies as a religious text. The second edition has been partially revised in the wake of 1990s research, and three exciting new chapters report on prediction and other applications of chaos mathematics. --Rob Lightner

List price: $19.95
Author: James L. Kent
Brand: Brand: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform

Psychedelic Information Theory: Shamanism in the Age of Reason is a formal analysis of the physical mechanisms underlying hallucination, shamanic ritual, and expanded states of consciousness. Written by James L. Kent, this text was researched for over 20 years and includes over 200 references and 31 images related to the latest science in the diverse fields of pharmacology, shamanism, and perception. As a succinct yet comprehensive formal analysis of the dynamics of hallucination and shamanic ritual, Psychedelic Information Theory is destined to become the modern textbook on psychedelic phenomena.

Chapters include information on the physiology of perception, types of visual hallucination, psychedelic pharmacology, psychedelic neuroplasticity, chaos theory, shamanic therapy, shamanic sorcery, and group mind phenomena related to psychedelic consciousness.

There Is No Theory of Everything: A Physics Perspective on Emergence

There Is No Theory of Everything: A Physics Perspective on Emergence Lowest new price: $59.28
Lowest used price: $50.78
List price: $69.99
Author: Lars Q. English

The main purpose of this book is to introduce a broader audience to emergence by illustrating how discoveries in the physical sciences have informed the ways we think about it. In a nutshell, emergence asserts that non-reductive behavior arises at higher levels of organization and complexity. As physicist Philip Anderson put it, “more is different.” Along the text's conversational tour through the terrain of quantum physics, phase transitions, nonlinear and statistical physics, networks and complexity, the author highlights the various philosophical nuances that arise in encounters with emergence. The final part of the book zooms out to reflect on some larger lessons that emergence affords us. One of those larger lessons is the realization that the great diversity of theories and models, and the great variety of independent explanatory frameworks, will always be with us in the sciences and beyond. There is no “Theory of Everything” just around the corner waiting to be discovered.<

One of the main benefits of this book is that it will make a number of exciting scientific concepts that are not normally covered at this level accessible to a broader audience. The overall presentation, including the use of examples, analogies, metaphors, and biographical interludes, is geared for the educated non-specialist.


Edgeware: Lessons from Complexity Science for Health Care Leaders

Edgeware: Lessons from Complexity Science for Health Care Leaders Lowest new price: $27.17
Lowest used price: $1.09
List price: $38.95
Author: Brenda Zimmerman
Brand: Brand: V H A, Incorporated

This publication is the first book to address complexity science in health care. It represents a revolutionary new way for health care leaders to think about how they engage employees, work with physicians, manage unmanageably complex tasks and plan for an uncertain future. But it's not for health care workers only - this book is useful to anyone interested in how complexity science is changing not only business management, but also how many disciplines of science relate to one another. Complexity science reframes our view of many systems that are only partially understood by traditional scientific methods. Systems as apparently diverse as stock markets, human bodies, ecosystems, immune systems, termite colonies and hospitals seem to share some patterns of behavior. These patterns provide insights into sustainability, viability, and innovation.

Radiance of Being: Understanding the Grand Integral Vision; Living the Integral Life (Omega Book) Lowest new price: $9.29
Lowest used price: $0.10
List price: $18.95
Author: Allan Combs

Here is a very exciting book, reflecting a very exciting time in the exploration of consciousness and evolution. With the possible exception of the rise of the great Idealist movements two centuries ago, today is the most gripping period of research in consciousness that we have ever seen. For the first time in history we have access to almost all accumulated information about human consciousness and its potential. Zen Buddhism, shamanism, body/mind disciplines, the great contemplative traditions, mysticism, and many more have given us an extraordinary map of human consciousness based on direct meditative experience, right up to contemporary marvels of scientific research, giving the enquiring mind an all-inclusive model of human consciousness and its unfolding.

A Guide to Temporal Networks (Series on Complexity Science)

A Guide to Temporal Networks (Series on Complexity Science) Lowest new price: $75.66
Lowest used price: $101.87
List price: $98.00
Author: Naoki Masuda

Network science offers a powerful language to represent and study complex systems composed of interacting elements from the Internet to social and biological systems. In its standard formulation, this framework relies on the assumption that the underlying topology is static, or changing very slowly as compared to dynamical processes taking place on it, e.g., epidemic spreading or navigation. Fuelled by the increasing availability of longitudinal networked data, recent empirical observations have shown that this assumption is not valid in a variety of situations. Instead, often the network itself presents rich temporal properties and new tools are required to properly describe and analyse their behaviour.A Guide to Temporal Networks presents recent theoretical and modelling progress in the emerging field of temporally varying networks, and provides connections between different areas of knowledge required to address this multi-disciplinary subject. After an introduction to key concepts on networks and stochastic dynamics, the authors guide the reader through a coherent selection of mathematical and computational tools for network dynamics. Perfect for students and professionals, this book is a gateway to an active field of research developing between the disciplines of applied mathematics, physics and computer science, with applications in others including social sciences, neuroscience and biology.
