Title:Simulating Social Complexity [electronic resource] : A Handbook

Note:Social systems are among the most complex known. This poses particular problems for those who wish to understand them. The complexity often makes analytic approaches infeasible and natural language approaches inadequate forrelating intricate cause an d effect. However, individual- and agent-based computational approaches hold out the possibility of new and deeper understanding of such systems. Simulating Social Complexity examines all aspects of usingagent- or individual-based simulation. This approac h represents systems as individual elements having each their own set of differing states and internal processes. The interactions between elements in the simulation representinteractions in the target systems. What makes these elements social is that the y are usefully interpretable as interacting elements of an observed society. In this, the focus is on human society, but can be extended to includesocial animals or artificial agents where such work enhances our understanding of human society. The phenome na of interest then result (emerge) from the dynamics of the interaction of social actors in an essential way and are usuallynot easily simplifiable by, for example, considering only representative actors. The introduction of accessible agent-based modell ing allows the representation of social complexity in a more natural and direct manner than previoustechniques. In particular, it is no longer necessary to distort a model with the introduction of overly strong assumptions simply in order to obtain analyt ic tractability. This makes agent-based modelling relatively accessible to arange of scientists. The outcomes of such models can be displayed and animated in ways that also make them more interpretable by experts and stakeholders. This handbook is intende d to help in the process of maturation of this newfield. It brings together, through the collaborative effort of many leading researchers, summaries of the best thinking and practice in this a

Title:Hear Where We Are [electronic resource] : Sound, Ecology, and Sense of Place
Author(s): Michael Stocker
Date:2013
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Throughout history, hearing and sound perception have been typically framed in the context of how sound conveys information and how that information influences the listener. Hear Where We Are inverts this premise and examines howhumans and other hear ing animals use sound to establish acoustical relationships with their surroundings. This simple inversion reveals a panoply of possibilities by which we can re-evaluate how hearing animals use, produce, andperceive sound. Nuance in vocalizations become s ignals of enticement or boundary setting silence becomes a field ripe in auditory possibilities predator/prey relationships are infused with acoustic deception, and sounds that havebeen considered territorial cues become the fabric of cooperative acoustic al communities. This inversion also expands the context of sound perception into a larger perspective that centers on biological adaptation within acoustichabitats. Here, the rapid synchronized flight patterns of flocking birds and the tight maneuvering o f schooling fish becomes an acoustic engagement. Likewise, when stridulating crickets synchronize their summer evening chirrups, it hasmore to do with the cricket community monitoring their collective boundaries rather than individual crickets establishin g personal territory or breeding fitness. In Hear Where We Are the author continuously challenges manyof the bio-acoustic orthodoxies, reframing the entire inquiry into sound perception and communication. By moving beyond our common assumptions, many of t he mysteries of acoustical behavior become revealed, exposing a fresh and fertilepanorama of acoustical experience and adaptation. Praise for Hear Where We Are: Hear Where We Are is as poetic as it is informative - in the tradition of some of the best sci entific writing. Julia Whitty, Author, Deep Blue Home:An Intimate Ecology of Our Wild Ocean Hear Where We Are opens up an entirely new way of understanding not only sound perception

Note:The international conference on Pedestrian and Evacuation Dynamics, held on February 27-29, 2008 at Wuppertal University in Germany, was the fourth in this series after successful meetings in Duisburg (2001), Greenwich (2003)and Vienna (2005). The co nference was aimed at improving the scientific exchange between scientists, experts and practitioners of various fields of pedestrian and evacuation dynamics and featured: the analysis of evacuation processesand pedestrian motion, modeling of pedestrian d ynamics in various situations, experiments on pedestrian dynamics, human behavior research, regulatory action. All these topics are included in this book to give a broad andstate-of-the-art overview of pedestrian and evacuation dynamics

Title:Coping with the Complexity of Economics [electronic resource]

Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The purpose of the science of complexity is to provide, if not a unified approach, at least useful tools to tackling complex problems in various scientific domains. Generally, complexity is considered a fundamental challenge tothe reductionist approa ch in science as a whole and to its ideas of certainty and randomness. The overall behaviour of a complex system is different from and more than the sum of its parts. The behaviour of non-linear complex systemsdepends on the interaction (often with retroa ctive effects) among its constituent parts and not so much (or not only) on the characteristics of these parts themselves the sum of the behaviour of single parts does not necessarilyprovide us with an explanation of the aggregate behaviour of a system. A ll this is true for economic systems. These are based on the activities of single economic agents. Each individual can obtain only partial knowledge that isfocussed around its world (local information) and react to external shocks in different ways (local rationality). The aim of this book is to provide an overview to recent developments in theory and empirical research that vieweconomic systems as complex phenomena whose aggregate dynamics can often not be inferred from its microscopic (microeconomic) bu ilding blocks. The collection of papers represented in this volume is dedicated to the memory of MassimoSalzano, who has been a fervent and eloquent advocate of the complexity approach. The contributions have been presented at a conference held to celebra te Massimos 60th birthday (Ecople -Economics: From Tradition of Complexity,Capri, 2-4 June, 2006), one year before he unexpectedly passed away in 2007

Note:Due to an increasing number of reported catastrophes all over the world, the safety especially of pedestrians today, is a dramatically growing field of interest, both for practitioners as well as scientists from variousdisciplines. The questions aris ing mainly address the dynamics of evacuating people and possible optimisations of the process by changing the architecture and /or the procedure. This concerns not only the case of ships, stadiums orbuildings, all with restricted geometries, but also the evacuation of complete geographical regions due to natural disasters. Furthermore, also simple crowd motion in relaxed situations poses new questions with respect tohigher comfort and efficiency since the number of involved persons at large events is as high as never before. In addition, as a new research topic in this field, collective animal behaviour is attracting increasing attention. All thiswas in the scope of the conference held in Vienna, September 2830, 2005, the third one in a series after Duis burg (2001) and Greenwich (2003)
