Fractal Patterns in Nonlinear Dynamics and Applications

1st Edition

Santo Banerjee, M K Hassan, Sayan Mukherjee, A Gowrisankar
December 05, 2019

Most books on fractals focus on deterministic fractals as the impact of incorporating randomness and time is almost absent. Further, most review fractals without explaining what scaling and self-similarity means. This book introduces the idea of scaling, self-similarity, scale-invariance and their...

Time Delay ODE/PDE Models: Applications in Biomedical Science and Engineering

1st Edition

W.E. Schiesser
December 02, 2019

Time delayed (lagged) variables are an inherent feature of biological/physiological systems.  For example, infection from a disease may at first be asymptomatic, and only after a delay is the infection apparent so that treatment can begin.Thus, to adequately describe physiological systems,...
