Download Chaotic Harmony: A Dialog about Physics, Complexity and Life by Ali Sanayei, Otto E. Rössler PDF

By Ali Sanayei, Otto E. Rössler

This interesting publication written through Ali Sanayei and Otto E. Rössler isn't a vintage clinical book, yet a vibrant discussion on technological know-how, philosophy and the interdisciplinary intersections of technology and expertise with biographic components. Chaotic concord: A conversation approximately Physics, Complexity and Life represents a dialogue among Otto Rössler and his colleague and pupil, targeting the several parts of technological know-how and highlights their mutual kin. The book's idea of interdisciplinary discussion is rare these days even though it has an extended culture in technology. It offers perception not just into fascinating issues which are frequently heavily associated, but in addition into the brain of a in demand scientist within the box of physics, chaos and complexity ordinarily. It permits a deep check out the interesting technique of clinical improvement and discovery and gives a really attention-grabbing heritage of identified and unknown evidence within the parts of complicated tactics in physics, cosmology, biology, brains and structures quite often. This booklet should be important to all who're drawn to technology, its evolution and in an unconventional and unique examine matters. without doubt it could function an notion for college kids, explaining the usually ignored incontrovertible fact that technology and philosophy improve each one other.

Example text

The next big thing was an attempt to better understand physics; I mean non-dissipative physics. The dissipative chaos I had been concerned with is a macroscopic phenomenon by definition because it contains friction. So the friction-less part of nature came into the focus of my interest. It was a quite new experience to start to simulate Hamiltonian systems— frictionless systems—on a computer. I hit on the idea of a T-tube at the time. It was after I had struck a friendship with Joe Ford in Atlanta, and we both saw that we could entertain new and potentially controversial ideas on how two particles can interact in a frictionless manner to generate chaos and other nontrivial types of behavior.

So also in the brain’s function, as recorded by the EEG? The EEG sums the activities of millions, even billions of neurons. It is a kind of partially synchronized activity which also appears chaotic, but is ‘‘hyper-chaotic’’ in type. We have periodic motions, we have chaotic motions, and then we have hyperchaos, so there is a whole hierarchy of more and more complex types of behavior depending on the number of variables involved. Plain chaos is already very, very counterintuitive because of its infinitely strong amplifying power.

He was the first after Anaxagoras, pari passu with his mathematician colleague Georg Cantor, to see the ultimately fractal reality behind the motion of three celestial bodies. So it is astrophysics which played a pioneering role in the history of chaos. How does cosmology enter? There is another famous fundamental physical theory at stake here, statistical thermodynamics. In the latter we also have particles that interact, just like the three particles of the 3-body problem do, but they are small particles, this time around and the science in charge of small particles interacting is called ‘‘thermodynamics’’—as everybody thinks.
