Integrated Molecular and Cellular Biophysics
Biophysics represents perhaps one of the best examples of interdisciplinary research
areas, where concepts and methods from disciplines such as physics, biology, biochemistry,
colloid chemistry, and physiology are integrated. It is by no means a new
field of study and has actually been around, initially as quantitative physiology... Generative Art
As a young man, this career shift wasn’t entirely motivated by a need to restore the right-left
hemisphere balance to my young brain; it may also have had something to do with the worry
that knowing a lot about Alan Turing and C++ was probably not the best way to get a girlfriend.
My studies of early 1990s ideas...
Scaling, Fractals and Wavelets
Scaling is a mathematical transformation that enlarges or diminishes objects. The technique is used in a variety of areas, including finance and image processing. This book is organized around the notions of scaling phenomena and scale invariance. The various stochastic models commonly used to describe scaling ? self-similarity, long-range...
The Artful Universe Expanded Our love of art, writes John Barrow, is the end product of millions of years of evolution. How we react to a beautiful painting or symphony draws upon instincts laid down long before humans existed. Now, in this enhanced edition of the highly popular The Artful Universe, Barrow further explores the close ties between our aesthetic appreciation and... The Fractal Geometry of Nature Imagine an equilateral triangle. Now, imagine smaller equilateral triangles perched in the center of each side of the original triangle--you have a Star of David. Now, place still smaller equilateral triangles in the center of each of the star's 12 sides. Repeat this process infinitely and you have a Koch snowflake, a mind-bending geometric... The Fractal Structure of Data Reference: Applications to the Memory Hierarchy For purposes of understanding its performance, a computer system is traditionally viewed as a processor coupled to one or more disk storage devices, and driven by externally generated requests (typically called transactions). Over the past several decades, very powerful techniques have become available to the performance analyst attempting to...
Topics in Mathematical Analysis (Series on Analysis, Applications and Computation) This volume consists of a series of lecture notes on mathematical analysis. The contributors have been selected on the basis of both their outstanding scientific level and their clarity of exposition. Thus, the present collection is particularly suited to young researchers and graduate students. Through this volume, the editors intend to provide... A Nonlinear Dynamics Perspective of Wolfram's New Kind of Science
Volume IV continues the author's odyssey on l-D cellular automata as chronicled in Volumes I, II and III, by uncovering a novel quasi-ergodicity phenomenon involving orbits meandering among omega-limit orbits of complex (group 5) and hyper (group 6) Bernoulli rules. This discovery is embellished with analytical formulas characterizing the...
Grammatical Picture Generation: A Tree-Based Approach This book introduces the reader to the notions, the techniques, and the theory of grammatical picture generation, a research field focusing on formal systems that describe sets of pictures by means of syntactic rules. The book presents important types of picture generators, using a tree-based approach to stress their common algorithmic basis, the...
