Modeling Natural Phenomena via Cellular Nonlinear Networks

Author(s): Angela Slavova, Pietro Zecca
Subject: Mathematics

Book Description

This book presents a study of neuroscience models and natural phenomena, such as tsunami waves and tornados. The first part discusses various mathematical models of tsunamis, including the Korteweg–de Vries equation, shallow water equations and the Camassa–Holm equation (CH). In order to study the dynamics of these models, the text uses the Cellular Nonlinear Networks (CNN) approach to discretize the governing equation using a suitable mathematical grid. The second part discusses some of the models arising in the field of neuroscience. It examines the Fitzhugh-Nagumo systems, which are very important for understanding the qualitative nature of nerve impulse propagation.

The volume will be of interest to a wide-ranging audience, including PhD students, mathematicians, physicists, engineers and specialists in the domain of nonlinear waves and their applications.
