J. Marro, J. M. Cortes and P. I. Hurtado. Modeling nonequilibrium phase transitions and critical behavior in complex systems. Computer Physics Communications 147: 115-119, 2002 [pdf]
We comment on some recent, yet unpublished results concerning instabilities in complex systems and their applications. In particular, we briefly describe main observations during extensive computer simulations of two lattice nonequilibrium models. One exhibits robust and efficient processes of pattern recognition under synaptic coherent activity; the second example exhibits interesting critical behavior and simulates nucleation and spinodal decomposition processes in driven fluids.
