summary: "Applied average technology: Environmental matters and worldwide views will give you the reader with an entire perception into the natural-scientific trend of the realm, protecting crucial historic levels of the improvement of assorted components of technological know-how, equipment of natural-scientific learn, basic medical and philosophical ideas, and the basic legislation of nature. The booklet analyzes the most clinical developments and advancements of recent traditional technology and likewise discusses very important facets of environmental safety. issues comprise: the matter of "the cultures": the mathematization of typical sciences and the informatization of society; the non-linear nature of the approaches happening in nature and society; software of the second one legislation of thermodynamics to explain the advance of organic structures; worldwide difficulties of the biosphere; idea and perform of solid natural paramagnetic fabrics; polymers and the typical atmosphere. Key positive factors comprise: an interdisciplinary method in contemplating clinical and technical difficulties; a dialogue of common clinical traits in sleek common technology, together with globalization demanding situations in nature and society, the natural chemistry of solid paramagnetic fabrics, the basics of the environmental chemistry of polymeric fabrics, etc.; a justification of using classical (non-equilibrium) thermodynamics to learning the habit of open (including organic) systems."

Lighthill wrote the following in an apologetic tone (Lighthill, 1986). For example, Alwyn Scott’s book describing the basic model of nonlinear science, their properties and methods of their study is named “Nonlinear Science: Emergence and Dynamics of Coherent Structures” Oxford: University Press, 2003. ” (One of the definitions of coherent structures (CS), say, in turbulent flows, is as follows: CS in turbulent flows are long-lived and ordered large-scale formations on the background of small-scale turbulence for this type of flow.

A question of the compatibility of classical thermodynamics and the idea of time evolution of the spontaneous formation of more and more complex structures then arose. Indeed, thermodynamics stated that the entropy of any closed system increased with time and reached its maximum value when the system reached the state of thermal equilibrium. In other words, if the system is left to its own resources, it will always seek to achieve the state with a minimum degree of order permitted by the initial conditions.

Some relationship exists between these trends in the development of nature. Information which can be stored, processed, transferred, and so forth is considered a universal criterion to unequivocally determine many characteristics of the development of material objects in nature. When studying material objects, phenomena, and processes, of primary interest is information storage, that is, only that part of information which, according to Léon Nicolas Brillouin, is called as fixed. It may not be transferred from one object to another, since the main thing consists in that it acts as a certain characteristic of a rather steady distribution or a variety of elements in the given structure of object.
