Stochastic Processes in Physics, Chemistry, and Biology (Lecture Notes in Physics Vol. 557)
|von Jan A. Freund|
Synopsis The theory of stochastic processes provides a huge arsenal of methods suitable for analyzing the influence of noise on a wide range of systems. Noise-induced, noise-supported or noise-enhanced effects sometimes offer an explanation for as yet open problems (information transmission in the nervous system and information processing in the brain, processes at the cell level, enzymatic reactions, for example), or pave the way to novel technological applications. Noise can play a prominent role in structure formation in physics, chemistry and biology, for example current filaments in semiconductors, catalytic reactions on surfaces, complex dynamics of the heart, brain, or of ecosystems. The book reviews those aspects of applied stochastics addressing researchers as well as students.
