The Measure of Our Days
New Beginnings at Life's EndBook - 1997
The results of the July 1999 conference study two aspects of the emerging transdisciplinary field of the physics of complex systems, namely physical understanding of biological systems and pattern formation in dissipative dynamical systems. The 31 papers presented are organized into sections devoted to spatio-temporal patterns, stochastic dynamics and conformational transitions in biological systems, nervous systems and neurodynamics, and general nonlinear phenomena. Some examples of specific topics include how DNA packages itself into finite bundles of a well-defined size, velocity profiles of subharmonic waves in vertically vibrated thin granular layer systems, and microdevices for studies of culture neural networks. No subject index.
