I am aware of the great responsibility of running a multidisciplinary journal such as Nonlinear Biomedical Physics to enable the publication of relevant studies in such a way that they can be understood by specialists from very different disciplines, from physics and biomedical engineering on the one hand to medicine and biology on the other hand, so that Nonlinear Biomedical Physics might function as a platform for multidisciplinary debate. Living organisms are complex nonlinear systems and the human brain is the most complex system we know. So it is not surprising that the methods of Nonlinear Dynamics and Deterministic Chaos Theory may be used, for example, in Neuroscience to analyze pathological changes in the brain or to assess the impact of applied therapies. But the same methods may also be adapted for socio-economic system analysis to reveal ‘the signatures’ of different physiological and pathological states of society and government
Wlodzimierz Klonowski is currently a Professor at the Nalecz Institute of Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, and is the Head of the Lab of Biosignal Analysis Fundamentals. He has been active for more than 20 years in the theory of complex nonlinear systems with applications in medicine and biology. He was an initiator and organizer of a series of European Summer Schools “EUROATTRACTOR”. He has contributed seriously to the theory of structure-property relationships in crosslinked polymer materials through his topological theory of networks, so called Systems with Discrete Interactions.
