This publication constitutes the completely refereed post-conference lawsuits of the 1st overseas convention on advanced Sciences, advanced 2009, held in Shanghai, China, in February 2009.

The 227 revised complete papers offered including 23 papers from 5 collated workshops (COART, ComplexCCS, ComplexEN, MANDYN, SPA) have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen. The papers tackle the subsequent subject matters: idea of artwork and track, causality in advanced platforms, engineering networks, modeling and research of human dynamics, social physics and its functions, constitution and dynamics of advanced networks, complicated organic platforms, advanced monetary systens, advanced social platforms, complicated engineering platforms, in addition to complicated structures methods.

The Chern Symposium 1979: Proceedings of the International Symposium on Differential Geometry in honor of S.-S. Chern, held in Berkeley, California, June 1979

This quantity attests to the energy of differential geometry because it probes deeper into its inner constitution and explores ever widening connections with different topics in arithmetic and physics. To so much people Professor S. S. Chern is smooth differential geometry, and we, his scholars, are thankful to him for best us to this fertile panorama.

Example text

For fBm, the three scaled PDFs collapse for most of range (the small deviations at very small or very large scaled intervals correspond to discreteness and finite size effects respectively). This indicates a good scaling in the distribution for the fBm model. the return interval distribution. Further, we examine the cluster size distribution, which is demonstrated in Fig. 14. We can see that FIGARCH captures the memory effects for both positive and negative clusters. Their effects are slightly stronger than the empirical memory.

An often-expressed concern regarding the application of physics methods to the social sciences is that physical laws are applied to systems with a very large number of subunits (at the order of Avogadro’s number, 1023 ), while social systems comprise a much smaller number of elements. Fortunately, due to the rapid development of electronic trading and data storing in the last few decades, financial data bases have become available with a huge amount of data points (say 108 ), enabling physicists to analyze them as dynamic systems.
