Note:Bayesian Networks in R with Applications in Systems Biology introduces the reader to the essential concepts in Bayesian network modeling and inference in conjunction with examples in the open-source statistical environment R. Thelevel of sophisticati on is gradually increased across the chapters with exercises and solutions for enhanced understanding and hands-on experimentation of key concepts. Applications focus on systems biology with emphasis on modelingpathways and signaling mechanisms from high throughput molecular data. Bayesian networks have proven to be especially useful abstractions in this regards as exemplified by their ability to discover new associations while validatingknown ones. It is also expected that the prevalence of publicly avai lable high-throughput biological and healthcare data sets may encourage the audience to explore investigating novel paradigms using the approaches presented in thebook

Title:Constructal Law and the Unifying Principle of Design [electronic resource]

Note:Design happens everywhere, whether in animate objects (e.g., dendritic lung structures, bacterial colonies, and corals), inanimate patterns (river basins, beach slope, and dendritic crystals), social dynamics (pedestrian trafficflows), or engineered systems (heat dissipation in electronic circuitry). This design in nature often takes on remarkably similar patterns, which can be explained under one unifying Constructal Law. This book explores theunifying power of the Constructal Law and its applicatio ns in all domains of design generation and evolution, ranging from biology and geophysics to globalization, energy, sustainability, and security. The Constructal Law accountsfor the universal tendency of flow systems to morph into evolving configurations that provide greater and easier access over time. The Constructal Law resolves the many and contradictory ad hoc statements of optimality, enddesign, and destiny in nature, such as minimum and maximum entropy production and minimum and maximum flow resist ance, and also explains the designs that are observed and copied in biomimetics. Constructal Law and the UnifyingPrinciple of Design covers the fundamentals of Constructal Theory and Design, as well as presenting a variety of state-of-the-art applications . Experts from the biological, physical and social sciences demonstrate the unification ofall design phenomena in nature, and apply this knowledge to novel designs in modern engineering, such as vascularization for self-healing and self-cooling materials for aircraft, and tree fins and cavities for heat transferenhancement. Captures a world-wide movement toward design as science Defines the place of the Constructal Law in physics and thermodynamics Features an interdisciplinaryapproach that spans phys ics, biology, engineering and the social sciences Demonstrates that a single law of physics governs all the pheno

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book is mainly about hybrid systems with continuous/discrete-time dynamics. The major part of the book consists of the theory of equations with piece-wise constant argument of generalized type. The systems as well as techniqueof investigation wer e introduced by the author very recently. They both generalized known theory about differential equations with piece-wise constant argument, introduced by K. Cook and J. Wiener in the 1980s. Moreover, differentialequations with fixed and variable moments of impulses are used to model real world problems. We consider models of neural networks, blood pressure distribution and a generalized model of the cardiac pacemaker. All the results of themanuscript have not been published in any book, yet. They are ver y recent and united with the presence of the continuous/discrete dynamics of time. It is of big interest for specialists in biology, medicine, engineering sciences,electronics. Theoretical aspects of the book meet very strong expectations of mathematician s who investigate differential equations with discontinuities of any type

Note:Synchronization of chaotic systems, a patently nonlinear phenomenon, has emerged as a highly active interdisciplinary research topic at the interface of physics, biology, applied mathematics and engineering sciences. In thisconnection, time-delay sys tems described by delay differential equations have developed as particularly suitable tools for modeling specific dynamical systems. Indeed, time-delay is ubiquitous in many physical systems, for example dueto finite switching speeds of amplifiers in ele ctronic circuits, finite lengths of vehicles in traffic flows, finite signal propagation times in biological networks and circuits, and quite generally whenever memory effects arerelevant. This monograph presents the basics of chaotic time-delay systems a nd their synchronization with an emphasis on the effects of time-delay feedback which give rise to new collective dynamics. Special attention is devoted toscalar chaotic/hyperchaotic time-delay systems, and some higher order models, occurring in different branches of science and technology as well as to the synchronization of their coupled versions. Last but not least, the presentationas a whole strives for a balance between the necessary mathematical description of the basics and the detailed presentatio n of real-world applications

Title:Statistical Analysis of Network Data [electronic resource] : Methods and Models
Author(s): Eric D Kolaczyk
Date:2009
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In the past decade, the study of networks has increased dramatically. Researchers from across the sciencesincluding biology and bioinformatics, computer science, economics, engineering, mathematics, physics, sociology, andstatisticsare more and more involved with the collection and statistical analysis of network-indexed data. As a result, statistical methods and models are being developed in this area at a furious pace, with contributions comingfrom a wide spectrum of disciplines. This book provides an up-to-date treatment of the foundations common to the statistical analysis of network data across the disciplines. The material is organized according to a statisticaltaxonomy, although the presentation entails a conscious balance of concepts versus m athematics. In addition, the examplesincluding extended cases studiesare drawn widely from the literature. This book should be of substantialinterest both to statisticians and to anyone else working in the area of network science. The coverage of topics i n this book is broad, but unfolds in a systematic manner, moving from descriptive (or exploratory) methods, tosampling, to modeling and inference. Specific topics include network mapping, characterization of network structure, network sampling, and the mo deling, inference, and prediction of networks, network processes, and network flows. Thisbook is the first such resource to present material on all of these core topics in one place. Eric Kolaczyk is a professor of statistics, and Director of the Program in Statistics, in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics atBoston University, where he also is an affiliated faculty member in the Center for Biodynamics, the Program in Bioinformatics, and the Division of Systems Engineering. His publications on ne twork-based topics include work ranging fromthe detection of anomalous traffic patterns in computer networks to the prediction of biological function in networks of interacting protein

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Encyclopedia of Complexity and Systems Science provides an authoritative single source for understanding and applying the concepts of complexity theory together with the tools and measures for analyzing complex systems in allfields of science and eng ineering. The science and tools of complexity and systems science include theories of self-organization, complex systems, synergetics, dynamical systems, turbulence, catastrophes, instabilities, nonlinearity,stochastic processes, chaos, neural networks, c ellular automata, adaptive systems, and genetic algorithms. Examples of near-term problems and major unknowns that can be approached through complexity and systems science include: Thestructure, history and future of the universe the biological basis of c onsciousness the integration of genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics as systems biology human longevity limits the limits of computing sustainability oflife on earth predictability, dynamics and extent of earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, and other na tural disasters the dynamics of turbulent flows lasers or fluids in physics, microprocessor design macromolecular assembly inchemistry and biophysics brain functions in cognitive neuroscience climate change ecosystem management traffic management and busi ness cycles. All these seemingly quite different kinds of structure formation have a number ofimportant features and underlying structures in common. These deep structural similarities can be exploited to transfer analytical methods and understanding from one field to another. This unique work will extend the influence ofcomplexity and system science to a much wider audience than has been possible to date

From the computer science point of view, the apparent ease in which living systems solve computationally difficult problems makes it inevitable to adopt strategies observed in nature forcreating information processing machinery. In this book, the major ideas behind Organic Computing are delineated, together with a sparse sample of computational projects undertaken in this new field. Biological metaphors includeevolution, neural networks, gene-regulatory networks, networks of bra in modules, hormone system, insect swarms, and ant colonies. Applications are as diverse as system design, optimization, artificial growth, task allocation,clustering, routing, face recognition, and sign language understanding

Note:Systems biology is defined for the purpose of this study as the understanding of biological network behaviors, and in particular their dynamic aspects, which requires the utilization of mathematical modeling tightly linked toexperiment. This involves a variety of approaches, such as the identification and validation of networks, the creation of appropriate datasets, the development of tools for data acquisition and software development, and the use ofmodeling and simulation software in close linkage with experiment. All of these are discussed in this volume. Of course, the definition becomes ambiguous at the margins, but at the core is the focus on networks, which makes it clearthat the goal is to understand the operation of the systems, rather than the component parts. It was concluded that the U.S. is currently ahead of the rest of the world in systems biology, largely because of earlier investment byfunding organizations and research institutions. This is reflected in a large number of active rese arch groups, and educational programs, and a diverse and growing funding base. However, there is evidence of rapid development outsidethe U.S., much of it begun in the last two to three years. Overall, however, the picture is of an active field in the ear ly stages of explosive growth. This volume is aimed at academic researchers, government research agencyrepresentatives and graduate students

Note:Power Laws, Scale-free Networks and Genome Biology deals with crucial aspects of the theoretical foundations of systems biology, namely power law distributions and scale-free networks which have emerged as the hallmarks ofbiological organization in t he post-genomic era. The chapters in the book not only describe the interesting mathematical properties of biological networks but moves beyond phenomenology, toward models of evolution capable of explainingthe emergence of these features. The collection of chapters, contributed by both physicists and biologists, strives to address the problems in this field in a rigorous but not excessively mathematical manner and to represent differentviewpoints, which is crucial in this emerging discipline. Each chapte r includes, in addition to technical descriptions of properties of biological networks and evolutionary models, a more general and accessible introduction to therespective problems. Most chapters emphasize the potential of theoretical systems biology for discovery of new biological phenomena
