Computational Mind: A Complex Dynamics Perspective

Front Cover
Springer Science & Business Media, Jun 12, 2007 - Medical - 692 pages

Computational Mind: A Complex Dynamics Perspective is a graduate–level monographic textbook in the field of Computational Intelligence. It presents a modern dynamical theory of the computational mind, combining cognitive psychology, artificial and computational intelligence, and chaos theory with quantum consciousness and computation. The book introduces to human and computational mind, comparing and contrasting main themes of cognitive psychology, artificial and computational intelligence. It presents brain/mind dynamics from the chaos theory perspective, including sections on chaos in human EEG, basics of nonlinear dynamics and chaos, techniques of chaos control, synchronization in chaotic systems and complexity in humanoid robots. This book presents modern theory of quantum computational mind, including sections on Dirac–Feynman quantum dynamics, quantum consciousness, and quantum computation using Josephson junctions. The book is designed as a one–semester course for computer scientists, engineers, physicists and applied mathematicians, both in industry and academia. It includes a strong bibliography on the subject and detailed index.
