These phenomena are often highly destructive, and include earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, climate change, , and weather. Early warning, damage, and the immediate response of human populations to these phenomena are also covered from the point of view of complexity and nonlinear systems. In 61 authoritative, state-of-the art articles, world experts in each field apply such tools and concepts as fractals, cellular automata, solitons game theory, network theory, and statistical physics to an understanding of these complex geophysical phenomena.Australian Emergency Manuals Series; O5 http://Www.ema.gov.au/agd/EMA/ rwpattach.nsf/VAP/ ...
