Nature provides many examples of physical systems that are described by deterministic equations of motion, but that nevertheless exhibit nonpredictable behavior. The detailed description of turbulent motions remains perhaps the outstanding unsolved problem of classical physics. In recent years, however, a new theory has been formulated that succeeds in making quantitative predictions describing certain transitions to turbulence. Its significance lies in its possible application to large classes (often very dissimilar) of nonlinear systems. Since the publication of Universality in Chaos in 1984, progress has continued to be made in our understanding of nonlinear dynamical systems and chaos. This second edition extends the collection of articles to cover recent developments in the field, including the use of statistical mechanics techniques in the study of strange sets arising in dynamics. It concentrates on the universal aspects of chaotic motions, the qualitative and quantitative predictions that apply to large classes of physical systems. Much like the previous edition, this book will be an indispensable reference for researchers and graduate students interested in chaotic dynamics in the physical, biological, and mathematical sciences as well as engineering.

This textbook is aimed at newcomers to nonlinear dynamics and chaos, especially students taking a first course in the subject. The presentation stresses analytical methods, concrete examples, and geometric intuition. The theory is developed systematically, starting with first-order differential equations and their bifurcations, followed by phase plane analysis, limit cycles and their bifurcations, and culminating with the Lorenz equations, chaos, iterated maps, period doubling, renormalization, fractals, and strange attractors.

The concept of transmitting information from one chaotic system to another derives from the observation of the synchronization of two chaotic systems. Having developed two chaotic systems that can be synchronized, scientists can modulate on one phase signal the information to be transmitted, and subtract (demodulate) the information from the corres

Voice Science, Second Edition was designed to provide speech-language pathologists and other members of the voice team with a thorough grounding in the anatomical, physiological, and mechanical aspects of voice production, as well as an introduction to cutting-edge research in voice science. This book is a valuable asset for teachers and students in communication sciences, as well as otolaryngologists, speech-language pathologists, singing and voice teachers, and professional voice users. An explosion of new knowledge has occurred in our time in the field of voice. The voice is one of our most critical communication tools. Therefore, voice disorders have a large impact on daily life for a great number of people. The interdisciplinary expertise of numerous authors has been invaluable in the preparation of this text. The book opens with introductory information about the physics of sound, and it goes on to discuss the anatomy and physiology of the voice, including neuroanatomy and the mechanics of vocal fold aging. It ends with chapters on voice care, exercise physiology, and forensic voice care. New to this edition: New chapters on topics such as laryngeal development and on exercise physiology, which is critical to understanding voice training and rehabilitation.Substantial additions to chapters on medical genetic issues, clinical anatomy and physiology, and processing of musical information.References have been updated throughout to reflect the current literature.A selection of new authors who provide an interdisciplinary approach.Many chapters have been rewritten extensively to include the most recent information. Voice Science, Second Edition is ideal for speech-language pathology students and clinicians and is suitable for classroom use as well as for reference.

In the summer of 1988 in Providence, the AMS celebrated its centennial with a wide range of mathematical activities. Among those was a symposium, Mathematics into the Twenty-first Century, which brought together a number of the top research mathematicians who will likely have a significant impact on the mathematics of this century. This book contains the lectures presented by 16 of the 18 individuals who spoke during the symposium. Written by some of the major international figures in mathematical research, this group of articles covers a panorama of the vital areas of mathematics at the turn of the 21st century and gives the general mathematical reader a broad perspective on some of the major trends in research.

The Stony Brook Conference, 'Graphs and Patterns in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics', was dedicated to Dennis Sullivan in honor of his sixtieth birthday. The event's scientific content, which was suggested by Sullivan, was largely based on mini-courses and survey lectures. The main idea was to help researchers and graduate students in mathematics and theoretical physics who encounter graphs in their research to overcome conceptual barriers. The collection begins with Sullivan's paper, 'Sigma models and string topology', which describes a background algebraic structure for the sigma model based on algebraic topology and transversality. Other contributions to the volume were organized into five sections: Feynman Diagrams, Algebraic Structures, Manifolds: Invariants and Mirror Symmetry, Combinatorial Aspects of Dynamics, and Physics.These sections, along with more research-oriented articles, contain the following surveys: 'Feynman diagrams for pedestrians and mathematicians' by M. Polyak, 'Notes on universal algebra' by A. Voronov, 'Unimodal maps and hierarchical models' by M. Yampolsky, and 'Quantum geometry in action: big bang and black holes' by A. Ashtekar. This comprehensive volume is suitable for graduate students and research mathematicians interested in graph theory and its applications in mathematics and physics.
