Self-Organized Criticality by Henrik Jeldtoft Jensen
Book DescriptionSelf-organized criticality (SOC) is based upon the idea that complex behavior can develop spontaneously in certain multi-body systems whose dynamics vary abruptly. This book is a clear and concise introduction to the field of self-organized criticality, and contains an overview of the main research results. The author begins with an examination of what is meant by SOC, and the systems in which it can occur. He then presents and analyzes computer models to describe a number of systems, and he explains the different mathematical formalisms developed to understand SOC. The final chapter assesses the impact of this field of study, and highlights some key areas of new research. The author assumes no previous knowledge of the field, and the book contains several exercises. It will be ideal as a textbook for graduate students taking physics, engineering, or mathematical biology courses in nonlinear science or complexity.

Stochastic Dynamics of Complex Systems, Hardback (April 2013)» View all books by Henrik Jeldtoft Jensen
Dynamical evolution over long time scales is a prominent feature of all systems we intuitively think of as complex; for example, ecosystems, or the economy. This book focuses on stochastic processes which cause ageing, and surprising fact that the ageing dynamics of systems which are different at microscopic level can be treated in similar ways.
