Complex and Adaptive Dynamical Systems: A Primer
by Claudius Gros
Publisher: arXiv 2008
Number of pages: 276
This textbook covers a wide range of concepts, notions and phenomena of a truly interdisciplinary subject of rapidly growing importance. Complex system theory deals with dynamical systems containing a very large number of variables, showing a plethora of emergent features, arising in a broad range of contexts.

The goal of these notes is to give a reasonably complete, although not exhaustive, discussion of what is commonly referred to as the Hopf bifurcation with applications to specific problems, including stability calculations.

We review some basic notions in ergodic theory and thermodynamic formalism, as well as introductory results in the context of max-plus algebra, in order to exhibit some properties of equilibrium measures when temperature goes to zero.

The monograph presents a generalization of the well-known Lyapunov function method and related concepts to the matrix function case within the framework of systematic stability analysis of dynamical systems (differential equations).

This book covers important topics like stability, hyperbolicity, bifurcation theory and chaos, topics which are essential to understand the behavior of nonlinear discrete dynamical systems. The theory is illuminated by examples and exercises.
