Written by recognized experts, this edited book covers recent theoretical, experimental and applied issues in the growing field of Complex Systems and Nonlinear Dynamics. It is divided into two parts, with the first section application based, incorporating the theory of bifurcation analysis, numerical computations of instabilities in dynamical systems and discussing experimental developments. The second part covers the broad category of statistical mechanics and dynamical systems. Several novel exciting theoretical and mathematical insights and their consequences are conveyed to the reader.

This book is of interest to a broad audience of scientists involved in the theory and applications of nonlinear dynamics and complex systems within the fields of physics, mathematics, biology, chemistry and engineering.

Johan Dubbeldam holds a PhD in theoretical physics from the Department of Physics, Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. He has been a lecturer in the mathematical physics group at the Delft Institute of Applied Mathematics (DIAM) since 2006. His work concentrates on dynamical systems in general, translocation of polymers, and the interaction

between dynamics and topology on networks.

Kirk Green holds a PhD in applied bifurcation analysis from the University of Bristol (UK). He is a project leader at the Centre for Mechanical and Maritime Structures, TNO (Delft, The Netherlands). He has particular expertise in the fields of spatial and time–delayed dynamical systems. His areas of research include Aeronautical, Mechanical, Optical and Structural Engineering, Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, and Computer Science.

Daan Lenstra received the PhD degree from Delft University of Technology. Since 1979 he

has researched topics in quantum electronics, quantum optics and condensed matter physics.
