not yet rated|write a review
Papers from the June 1994 NATO Advanced Study Institute consider the origin and nature of complex structures found far from equilibrium, with scale variance due to self-similarity of underlying structures as a common theme. Topics include theoretical and computational aspects of pattern formation, non-equilibrium dynamics of the growth of interfaces and other manifolds, coarsening phenomena, generic scale invariance in driven systems, and the concept of self- organized criticality.
