The poems in this debut collection spring from a unique collision of science and art in one poet's heart and mind. In these often elegiac poems, Hazen explores many forms of love — between children, parents, siblings, friends, and lovers. In powerful poetic language and structure, loss is explored, and survival becomes another form of understanding, a way of seeing ourselves and others not as guilty or innocent, good or bad, but as complex, sometimes thwarted beings who are always striving for more wisdom, more empathy, more light. Hazen's language is elegant, her point of view unflinching, her voice mature and warm. Science in these poems is both information and consolation, a way of untangling chaos, of seeing more clearly and cleanly. Hazen is a poet who understands that we are all searching in various ways to make order of our lives and loves, and who crafts poems that can aid us in that search.

Chaos And Catastrophe Theories

What is chaos? How can it be measured? How are the models estimated? What is catastrophe? How is it modelled? How are the models estimated? These questions are the focus of this volume. Beginning with an explanation of the differences between deterministic and probabilistic models, Brown then introduces the reader to chaotic dynamics. Other topics covered are finding settings in which chaos can be measured, estimating chaos using nonlinear least squares and specifying catastrophe models. Finally a nonlinear system of equations that models catastrophe using real survey data is estimated.

This book introduces a rapidly growing new research area ? the study of dynamical properties of elementary fields. The methods used in this field range from algebraic topology to parallel computer programming. The main aim of this research is to understand the behavior of elementary particles and fields under extreme circumstances, first of all at high temperature and energy density generated in the largest accelerators of the world and supposed to be present in the early evolution of our Universe shortly after the Big Bang.In particular, chaos is rediscovered in a new appearance in these studies: in gauge theories the well-known divergence of initially adjacent phase space trajectories leads over into a quasi-thermal distribution of energy with a saturated average distance of different field configurations. This particular behavior is due to the compactness of the gauge group.Generally this book is divided into two main parts: the first part mainly deals with the ?classical? discovery of chaos in gauge field theory while the second part presents methods and research achievements in recent years. One chapter is devoted entirely to the presentation and discussion of computational problems. The major theme, returning again and again throughout the book, is of course the phenomenon with a thousand faces ? chaos itself.This book is intended to be a research book which introduces the reader to a new research field, presenting the basic new ideas in detail but just briefly touching on the problems of other related fields, like perturbative or lattice gauge theory, or dissipative chaos. The terminology of these related fields are, however, used.Exercises are also included in this book. They deepen the reader's understanding of special issues and at the same time offer more information on related problems. For the convenience of the fast reader, solutions are presented right after the problems.

Now you can get up-to-date statistics on economic, population, natural resource, and environmental trends and conditions for nearly every country in the world from one convenient software program. The World Resources Data Base on Diskette gives you quick, easy access to all of the statistics found in the print edition of World Resources 1992-93, and more! This invaluable research and reference tool contains 483 essential variables for 176 countries and 13 regional and economic groupings, with thousands of statistics for: *Basic economic indicators *Population and human development *Land cover and settlements *Food and agriculture *Forests and rangelands *Wildlife and habitat *Energy and materials *Freshwater *Oceans and coasts *Atmosphere and climate With 20-year time series data for nearly half of the variables, the database gives you a wealth of authoritative information not available from any other single source. The database program's user-friendly mathematical, statistical, and graphical functions allow you to browse, select, manipulate, graph, and print any or all of the data, or to export it into your favorite spreadsheet or word-processing formats. Students, teachers, professionals--anyone, in fact, who needs authoritative, up-to-the-minute information on the environment--will find it remarkably easy to conduct their own statistical analyses of critical global trends and to create charts, graphs, and tables to reinforce reports and presentations or to enhance research and teaching. The IBM-compatible, high-density diskettes can be used on any p.c. or compatible computer with a high-density floppy disk drive, hard drive, and 512K RAM. The database includes a comprehensive user's guide with complete documentation, high-density diskettes in both 3.5" and 5.25" formats, and a copy of the print edition of World Resources 1992-93.

This report distills those issues of Chaos Theory essential for military decision makers while conducting a thorough review of Chaos applications in military affairs. Designed for courses at the various war colleges, the paper explains how to recognize Chaos, where to expect Chaos, and how to exploit the theories of Chaos and fractals. The essay includes a tutorial of nonlinear dynamics--assuming no math prerequisites--and an extensive bibliography. The universal features of chaotic systems provide specific tools and methods to apply the theoretical results to problems in decision making and strategy formulation.

The 1960s were perhaps a decade of confusion, when scientists faced d- culties in dealing with imprecise information and complex dynamics. A new set theory and then an in?nite-valued logic of Lot? A. Zadeh were so c- fusing that they were called fuzzy set theory and fuzzy logic; a deterministic system found by E. N. Lorenz to have random behaviours was so unusual that it was lately named a chaotic system. Just like irrational and imaginary numbers, negative energy, anti-matter, etc., fuzzy logic and chaos were gr- ually and eventually accepted by many, if not all, scientists and engineers as fundamental concepts, theories, as well as technologies. In particular, fuzzy systems technology has achieved its maturity with widespread applications in many industrial, commercial, and technical ?elds, ranging from control, automation, and arti?cial intelligence to image/signal processing,patternrecognition,andelectroniccommerce.Chaos,ontheother hand,wasconsideredoneofthethreemonumentaldiscoveriesofthetwentieth century together with the theory of relativity and quantum mechanics. As a very special nonlinear dynamical phenomenon, chaos has reached its current outstanding status from being merely a scienti?c curiosity in the mid-1960s to an applicable technology in the late 1990s. Finding the intrinsic relation between fuzzy logic and chaos theory is certainlyofsigni?cantinterestandofpotentialimportance.Thepast20years have indeed witnessed some serious explorations of the interactions between fuzzylogicandchaostheory,leadingtosuchresearchtopicsasfuzzymodeling of chaotic systems using Takagi–Sugeno models, linguistic descriptions of chaotic systems, fuzzy control of chaos, and a combination of fuzzy control technology and chaos theory for various engineering practices.

Psychology and the social sciences are in need of a new foundation, one that provides a better model for understanding complex behavior. Chaos theory and its newest permutation, complexity theory, offers an innovative, exciting and potentially revolutionary leap forward in the evolution of scientific thought. In Clinical Chaos, therapists and theoreticians from various areas in the social sciences will explore the relevance and implications for non-linear dynamics in observing, explaining, and understanding human behavior. At last, the scientific search can again encompass surprise, transformation, unpredictability, and pattern. This book is intended to introduce social scientists to chaos through paths that are already familiar. By linking chaos theory with existing psychological theories and established areas of clinical pursuit, Clinical Chaos emphasizes the relevance of this new science in providing a more flexible useful model for complexities of life.
