Non-Equilibrium Social Science and Policy : Introduction and Essays on New and Changing Paradigms in Socio-Economic Thinking (2017)
Cham, Heidelberg, Dordrecht, London, New York : SpringerOpen
Notes: The overall aim of this book, an outcome of the European FP7 FET Open NESS project, is to contribute to the ongoing effort to put the quantitative social sciences on a proper footing for the 21st century. A key focus is economics, and its implications on policy making, where the still dominant traditional approach increasingly struggles to capture the economic realities we observe in the world today - with vested interests getting too often in the way of real advances. Insights into behavioral economics and modern computing techniques have made possible both the integration of larger information sets and the exploration of disequilibrium behavior. The domain-based chapters of this work illustrate how economic theory is the only branch of social sciences which still holds to its old paradigm of an equilibrium science - an assumption that has already been relaxed in all related fields of research in the light of recent advances in complex and dynamical systems theory and related data mining. The other chapters give various takes on policy and decision making in this context. Written in nontechnical style throughout, with a mix of tutorial and essay-like contributions, this book will benefit all researchers, scientists, professionals and practitioners interested in learning about the "thinking in complexity" to understand how socio-economic systems really work.

Novel scaling behavior of directed polymers: Disorder distribution with long tails (1990)
Springer
Journal of statistical physics 61 (1990), S. 885-889 
ISSN: 1572-9613
Keywords Directed polymers ; non-Gaussian distribution tails
Source: Springer Online Journal Archives 1860-2000
Topics: Physics
Notes: Abstract We study the problem of directed polymers (DP) on a square lattice. The distribution of disorderε is assumed to be independent but non-Gaussian. We show that for distributions with a power-law tailP(ε) ∼ 1/|ε|1+μ , whereμ>2, so that the mean and variance are well defined, the scaling exponentv of the DP model depends onμ in a continuous fashion.

Diffusion reproduction processes (1990)
Springer
Journal of statistical physics 58 (1990), S. 849-861 
ISSN: 1572-9613
Keywords Population dynamics ; fluctuation ; localization
Source: Springer Online Journal Archives 1860-2000
Topics: Physics
Notes: Abstract Interesting physics emerges from studying a population of reproducing individuals. Each can be regarded as a random walker, but it can either duplicate or die. Novel features of the collective behavior are quite surprising: if individuals reproduce or die freely, the life expectation is proportional to the size of the population, and if it is kept constant, the center of mass moves in space as if it were a single walker (i.e., the diffusion constant is independent of population's size). Biology-inspired interactions are also considered.

Non-linear Langevin model of geomorphic erosion processes (1993)
Oxford, UK : Blackwell Publishing Ltd
ISSN: 1365-246X
Source: Blackwell Publishing Journal Backfiles 1879-2005
Topics: Geosciences
Notes: Recent spectral studies of vertical transect profiles of landscapes and mountains have shown them to be self-affine fractals, i.e. the rms height fluctuation Δh(L) averaged over a distance L scales as Δh(L)∼Lx with X≈ 0.5 ± 0.1, related to the fractal dimension Df= 2 -X≈ 1.5 of the horizontal contours. We propose that self-affine rough landscapes are created by the interplay of non-linearity and noise. To illustrate this idea and model the formation of such structures, we suggest a non-linear stochastic equation ∂h/∂t=DΔ2h+λ(Δh)2+ν(r, t), which is the generalization of the deterministic Culling's linear equation. The non-linear term λ(Δh)2 comes from the requirement that erosion is proportional to the exposed area of the landscape; the noise term ν(r, t) accounts for the fact that erosion is locally irregular, as a result of the heterogeneity of soils and distribution of storms. Using this general framework, we recover the scaling law Δh(L∼Lx with X≥ 0.4. Several novel avenues of research emerge from this analysis to further quantify geological data.

Directed polymers in Hartree-Fock approximation (1989)
Springer
Journal of statistical physics 57 (1989), S. 1123-1128 
ISSN: 1572-9613
Keywords Directed polymers ; replica trick ; self-consistent fields
Source: Springer Online Journal Archives 1860-2000
Topics: Physics
Notes: Abstract A replica trick is used to map the problem of directed polymers into a quantum mechanics problem ofn-body bound states. This bound-state problem is then treated using a self-consistent method of Hartree-Fock. Ford=2, the exact result of the DP exponents is reproduced; and for complex DP, the ground-state energyE n∼ n2 is found, confirming previous numerical results.

Properties of the solutions set for a class of nonlinear evolution inclusions with nonlocal conditions (2013)
Springer
Publication Date: 2013-02-06
Description: In this paper, we consider the nonlocal problems for nonlinear first-order evolution inclusions in an evolution triple of spaces. Using techniques form multivalued analysis and fixed point theorems, we prove existence theorems of solutions for the cases of a convex and of a nonconvex valued perturbation term with nonlocal conditions. Also, we prove the existence of extremal solutions and a strong relaxation theorem. Some examples are presented to illustrate the results.
