In the last years, adaptive networks have been discovered simultaneously in different fields as a universal framework for the study of self-organization phenomena. Understanding the mechanisms behind these phenomena is hoped to bring forward not only empirical disciplines such as biology, sociology, ecology, and economy, but also engineering disciplines seeking to employ controlled emergence in future technologies.
This volume presents new analytical approaches, which combine tools from dynamical systems theory and statistical physics with tools from graph theory to address the
principles behind adaptive self-organization. It is the first class of approaches that is applicable to continuous networks.
The volume discusses the mechanisms behind three emergent phenomena that are prominently discussed in the context of biological and social sciences:
adaptive networks, weighted networks, interplay of structure and dynamics,
synchronization, self-organized criticality, engineering complexity, structural and
