Collective behavior and evolutionary games - An introduction

Description: This article is an introduction to a special issue in Chaos, Solitons & Fractals with the goal of attracting submissions that identify unifying principles that describe the essential aspects of collective behavior, and which thus allow for a better interpretation and foster the understanding of the complexity arising in such systems.

Dynamical approach to Lévy processes

Description: This article discusses a dynamical approach to Lévy processes, which makes it possible to derive all statistical properties of the diffusion process from the correlation function of the dichotomous fluctuating variable Φy(t).

Stromatolites: why do we care?

Description: Article discussing stromatolites. The authors apply the method of Diffusion Entropy (DE) to the study of stromatolites by means of a two-dimensional procedure that makes it possible for us to compare the DE analysis to the results of a compression method.

Dynamical model for DNA sequences

Description: This article discusses a dynamical model for DNA sequences based on the assumption that the statistical properties of DNA paths are determined by the joint action of two processes, one deterministic with long-range correlations and the other random and δ-function correlated.

Towards the timely detection of toxicants

Description: Article discussing the problem of enhancing the sensitivity of biosensors to the influence of toxicants, with an entropy method of analysis, denoted as CASSANDRA, for the specific purpose of studying non-stationary time series.

Compression and Diffusion: A Joint Approach to Detect Complexity

Description: Article discussing a joint approach to detect complexity by combining the Compression Algorithm Sensitive To Regularity (CASToRe) and Complex Analysis of Sequences via Scaling AND Randomness Assessment (CASSANDRA) procedures.

From power law intermittence to macroscopic coherent regime

Description: Article addressing the problem of establishing which is the proper form of quantum master equation generating a survival probability identical to that corresponding to the nonergodic sequence of "light on" and "light off" fluorescence fluctuations in blinking quantum dots.

Linear response at criticality

Description: In this article, the authors study a set of cooperatively interacting units at criticality, and prove with analytical and numerical arguments that they generate the same renewal non-Poisson intermittency as that produced by blinking quantum dots.
