Topics and Lecture Notes

Background Reading

The following references cover background material for the three lectures.

DI Zengru

Introduction to Weighted Networks(Lecture notes)

Background Reading

HAN Jing

Collective Behavior of Multi-agent systems.

Lecture 1: Graph Coloring Problems – Analysis and Design. Part I Part II Part III

Lecture 2: Synchronization and “Soft Control”.

Background Reading

Soft Control on Collective Behavior of a Group of Autonomous Agents by a Shill Agent. Jing Han, Ming Li, Lei Guo. Journal of Systems Science and Complexity, 2006(19):54-62

Local Evaluation Functions and Global Evaluation Functions for Computational Evolution. Jing Han. Complex Systems, 15, Issue 4 (c) 2005, pages 307 – 347.

HAO Bai-lin

lecture) and Applied symbolic dynamics from 1D to 2D to ODE (Second part of the lecture)

Background Reading

Lecture 1:Symbolic Dynamics in Action or Applied Symbolic Dynamics

1. Bailin Hao, Elementary Symbolic Dyanmics and Chaos in Dissipative Systems,

  a monograph, World Scientific, 1989. Downloadable from Hao's webpage:
  Hao's apology: Since not all figures in this book were Postscript files and
  I have not made them into .eps yet, I have put an image of my personal copy
  in my website. It is a file of more than 20MB. That is why I did not put it
  in the SFI Wiki. I hope I will be able to do it in not-distant future. The
  symbolic dynamics chapters of this book are somehow outdated. For those who
  want to learn more about symbolic dynamics I suggest the following book.

2. Bailin Hao and Weimou Zheng, Applied Symbolic Dynamics and Chaos, WSPC, 1998,

  430pp. There is one copy at SFI's Library and in ITP-CAS Library.

Lecture 2: Visualization of real DNA data and a few nice math therefrom

1. Shen Junjie at al., SeeDNA: a visualization tool for long DNA sequences and complete genomes It runs on RedHat Linux with GTK support. Its C source may be downloaded from Hao's website:

2. Bailin Hao and Huimin Xie, Factorizable Language: From Dyanmics to Biology

3. Xiaoli Shi et al., Decomposition and reconstruction of protein sequences: the problem of uniqueness and factorizable language

4. Bailin Hao and Lei Gao, Prokaryotic branch of tree of life: a composition vector approach
