Title:Neural Fields [electronic resource] : Theory and Applications
Author(s): Stephen Coombes
Peter beim Graben
Roland Potthast
James Wright
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:With this book, the editors present the first comprehensive collection in neural field studies, authored by leading scientists in the field - among them are two of the founding-fathers of neural field theory. Up to now, researchresults in the field h ave been disseminated across a number of distinct journals from mathematics, computational neuroscience, biophysics, cognitive science and others. Starting with a tutorial for novices in neural field studies, thebook comprises chapters on emergent pattern s, their phase transitions and evolution, on stochastic approaches, cortical development, cognition, robotics and computation, large-scale numerical simulations, the coupling of neural fieldsto the electroencephalogram and phase transitions in anesthesia. The intended readership are students and scientists in applied mathematics, theoretical physics, theoretical biology, and computational neuroscience. Neural field theoryand its applications have a long-standing tradition in the mathematical and computati onal neurosciences. Beginning almost 50 years ago with seminal work by Griffiths and culminating in the 1970ties with the models of Wilson and Cowan,Nunez and Amari, this important research area experienced a renaissance during the 1990ties by the groups of Ermentrout, Bressloff, Haken, and Wright. Since then, much progress has been made in both, the development of mathematical andnumerical techniques, and in physiological refinement and understanding. In contrast to large-scale neural network models desc ribed by huge connectivity matrices that are computationally expensive in numerical simulations, neural fieldmodels described by connectivity kernels allow for analytical treatment by means of functional analysis methods. Thus, a number of rigorous result s on the existence of bump and wave solutions or on inverse kernel construction problemsare nowadays available. Moreover, neural fields provide an important interface for the coupling of continuous neur

Title:Translational Recurrences [electronic resource] : From Mathematical Theory to Real-World Applications
Author(s): Norbert Marwan
Michael Riley
Alessandro Giuliani
Jr. Webber Charles L
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book features 13 papers presented at the Fifth International Symposium on Recurrence Plots, held August 2013 in Chicago, IL. It examines recent applications and developments in recurrence plots and recurrence quantifi cationanalysis (RQA) with s pecial emphasis on biological and cognitive systems and the analysis of coupled systems using cross-recurrence methods. Readers will discover new applications and insights into a range of systems provided byrecurrence plot analysis and new theoretical and mathematical developments in recurrence plots. Recurrence plot based analysis is a powerful tool that operates on real-world complex systems that are nonlinear, non-stationary, noisy, ofany statistical distribution, free of any particular model type, and not particularly long. Quantitative analyses promote the detection of system state changes, synchronized dynamical regimes, or classifi cation of system states. Th ebook will be of interest to an interdisciplinary audience of recurrence plot users and re searchers interested in time series analysis of complex systems in general

Title:Consensus and Synchronization in Complex Networks [electronic resource]
Author(s): Ljupco Kocarev
Date:2013
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Synchronization in complex networks is one of the most captivating cooperative phenomena in nature and has been shown to be of fundamental importance in such varied circumstances as the continued existence of species, thefunctioning of heart pacemake r cells, epileptic seizures, neuronal firing in the feline visual cortex and cognitive tasks in humans. E.g. coupled visual and acoustic interactions make fireflies flash, crickets chirp, and an audienceclap in unison. On the other hand, in distributed sy stems and networks, it is often necessary for some or all of the nodes to calculate some function of certain parameters, e.g. sink nodes in sensor networks being tasked withcalculating the average measurement value of all the sensors or multi-agent system s in which all agents are required to coordinate their speed and direction. When all nodes calculate the same function of the initial values in thesystem, they are said to reach consensus. Such concepts - sometimes also called state agreement, rendezvous, and observer design in control theory - have recently received considerable attention in the computational science andengineering communities. Quite generally, consensus formation among a small group of expert models of an objective process is challengin g because the separate models have already been optimized in their own parameter spaces. Themathematical framework for describing synchronization and consensus in natural and technical sciences is similar and the aim of this book is to provide the first comprehensive work in which synchronization and consensus are presentedjointly, thereby allowing the reader to learn about the similarities and differences of the two concepts in both a systematic and application-oriented fashion. The ten chapters have be en carefully selected so as to reflect the currentstate-of-the-art of synchronization and consensus in networked systems in particular two chapters dealing with a novel application of synchronization

Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The language-communication-society triangle defies traditional scientific approaches. Rather, it is a phenomenon that calls for an integration of complex, transdisciplinary perspectives, if we are to make any progress inunderstanding how it works. Th e highly diverse agents in play are not merely cognitive and/or cultural, but also emotional and behavioural in their specificity. Indeed, the effort may require building a theoretical and methodologicalbody of knowledge that can effectively convey the ch aracteristic properties of phenomena in human terms. New complexity approaches allow us to rethink our limited and mechanistic images of human societies and create more appropriateemo-cognitive dynamic and holistic models. We have to enter into dialogue w ith the complexity views coming out of other more material sciences, but we also need to take steps in the linguistic and psycho-sociological fieldstowards creating perspectives and concepts better fitted to human characteristics. Our understanding of com plexity is different but not opposed to the one that is more commonly found in texts written by people working inphysics or computer science, for example. The goal of this book is to extend the knowledge of these other more human or socially oriented pe rspectives on complexity, taking account of the language and communication singularitiesof human agents in society.

Note:Logic, the discipline that explores valid reasoning, does not need to be limited to a specific form of representation but should include any form as long as it allows us to draw sound conclusions from given information. The use ofdiagrams has a long but unequal history in logic: The golden age of diagrammatic logic of the 19th century thanks to Euler and Venn diagrams was followed by the early 20th century's symbolization of modern logic by Frege and Russell.Recently, we have been witnessing a reviva l of interest in diagrams from various disciplines - mathematics, logic, philosophy, cognitive science, and computer science. This book aims to provide a space for this newly debated topic -the logical status of diagrams - in order to advance the goal of universal logic by exploring common and/or unique features of visual reasoning

Note:This is the first comprehensive monograph on the mathematical theory of the solitaire game The Tower of Hanoi which was invented in the 19th century by the French number theorist douard Lucas. The book comprises a surveyof the historical development from the games predecessors up to recent research in mathematics and applications in computer science and psychology. Apart from long-standing myths it contains a thorough, largely self-containedpresentation of the essential mathematical facts with comple te proofs, including also unpublished material. The main objects of research today are the so-called Hanoi graphs and the related Sierpiski graphs. Acknowledging the greatpopularity of the topic in computer science, algorithms and their correctness proofs form an essential part of the book. In view of the most important practical applications of the Tower of Hanoi and its variants, namely in physics,network theory, and cognitive (neuro)psychology, other related structures and puzzles like, e.g., the Tower of London, are addressed. Numerous captivating integer sequences arise along the way, but also many open questions imposethemselves. Central among these is the famed Frame-Stewart conjecture. Despite many attempts to decide it and large-scale numerical e xperiments supporting its truth, it remains unsettled after more than 70 years and thus demonstratesthe timeliness of the topic. Enriched with elaborate illustrations, connections to other puzzles and challenges for the reader in the form of (solved) exer cises as well as problems for further exploration, this book is enjoyablereading for students, educators, game enthusiasts and researchers alike

Note:We are living in an ever more complex world, an epoch where human actions can accordingly acquire far-reaching potentialities. Complex and adaptive dynamical systems are ubiquitous in the world surrounding us and require us toadapt to new realities a nd the way of dealing with them. This primer has been developed with the aim of conveying a wide range of commons-sense knowledge in the field of quantitative complex system science at an introductory level,providing an entry point to this both fascinatin g and vitally important subject. The approach is modular and phenomenology driven. Examples of emerging phenomena of generic importance treated in this book are: -- The small worldphenomenon in social and scale-free networks. -- Phase transitions and self -organized criticality in adaptive systems. -- Life at the edge of chaos and coevolutionary avalanches resulting from the unfolding of all living. -- Theconcept of living dynamical systems and emotional diffusive control within cognitive system theory. Te chnical course prerequisites are a basic knowledge of ordinary and partial differential equations and of statistics. Each chaptercomes with exercises and suggestions for further reading - solutions to the exercises are also provided. This second edition a dds a new chapter on quantifiying/measuring complexity in given systems, together with an introduction toinformation theory, has an expanded exercises and solutions section, and contains both revised and additional subsections

Title:Structural Analysis of Complex Networks [electronic resource]
Author(s): Matthias Dehmer
Date:2011
Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Because of the increasing complexity and growth of real-world networks, their analysis by using classical graph-theoretic methods is oftentimes a difficult procedure. As a result, there is a strong need to combine graph-theoreticmethods with mathemat ical techniques from other scientific disciplines, such as machine learning and information theory, in order to analyze complex networks more adequately. Filling a gap in literature, this self-contained bookpresents theoretical and application-oriented re sults to structurally explore complex networks. The work focuses not only on classical graph-theoretic methods, but also demonstrates the usefulness of structural graph theory as a toolfor solving interdisciplinary problems. Special emphasis is given to m ethods related to the following areas: * Applications to biology, chemistry, linguistics, and data analysis * Graph colorings * Graph polynomials * Informationmeasures for graphs * Metrical properties of graphs * Partitions and decompositions * Quantitati ve graph measures Structural Analysis of Complex Networks is suitable for a broad, interdisciplinary readership of researchers,practitioners, and graduate students in discrete mathematics, statistics, computer science, machine learning, artificial intelli gence, computational and systems biology, cognitive science, computational linguistics, and mathematicalchemistry. The book may be used as a supplementary textbook in graduate-level seminars on structural graph analysis, complex networks, or network-based machine learning methods

Title:Ubiquitous Quantum Structure [electronic resource] : From Psychology to Finance
Author(s): Andrei Y Khrennikov
Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Quantum-like structure is present practically everywhere. Quantum-like (QL) models, i.e. models based on the mathematical formalism of quantum mechanics and its generalizations can be successfully applied to cognitive science,psychology, genetics, ec onomics, finances, and game theory. This book is not about quantum mechanics as a physical theory. The short review of quantum postulates is therefore mainly of historical value: quantum mechanics is just thefirst example of the successful application of non-Kolmogorov probabilities, the first step towards a contextual probabilistic description of natural, biological, psychological, social, economical or financial phenomena. A generalcontextual probabilistic model (Vxj model) is presented. It can be used for describing probabilities in both quantum and classical (statistical) mechanics as well as in the above mentioned phenomena. This model can be representedin a quantum-like way, namely, in complex and more general Hilbert spaces. In this way quantum pro bability is totally demystified: Born's representation of quantum probabilities by complex probability amplitudes, wave functions, issimply a special representation of this type

Title:Contextual Approach to Quantum Formalism [electronic resource]
Author(s): Andrei Khrennikov
Date:2009
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The aim of this book is to show that the probabilistic formalisms of classical statistical mechanics and quantum mechanics can be unified on the basis of a general contextual probabilistic model. By taking into account thedependence of (classical) pr obabilities on contexts (i.e. complexes of physical conditions), one can reproduce all distinct features of quantum probabilities such as the interference of probabilities and the violation of Bellsinequality. Moreover, by starting with a formula for the interference of probabilities (which generalizes the well known classical formula of total probability), one can construct the representation of contextual probabilities bycomplex probability amplitudes or, in the abstract formalism, by normalized vectors of the complex Hilbert space or its hyperbolic generalization. Thus the Hilbert space representation of probabilities can be naturally derived fromclassical probabilistic assumptions. An important chapter of the book critically reviews known no-go theore ms: the impossibility to establish a finer description of micro-phenomena than provided by quantum mechanics and, inparticular, the commonly accepted consequences of Bells theorem (including quantum non-locality). Also, possible applications of the contex tual probabilistic model and its quantum-like representation in complex Hilbert spaces inother fields (e.g. in cognitive science and psychology) are discussed

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

Note:Computational Neuroscience is a burgeoning field of research where only the combined effort of neuroscientists, biologists, psychologists, physicists, mathematicians, computer scientists, engineers and other specialists, e.g.from linguistics and medi cine, seem to be able to expand the limits of our knowledge. The present volume is an introduction, largely from the physicists' perspective, to the subject matter with in-depth contributions by systemneuroscientists. A conceptual model for complex networ ks of neurons is introduced that incorporates many important features of the real brain, such as various types of neurons, various brain areas, inhibitory and excitatory couplingand the plasticity of the network. The computational implementation on superc omputers, which is introduced and discussed in detail in this book, will enable the readers to modify and adapt the algortihm for their own research.Worked-out examples of applications are presented for networks of Morris-Lecar neurons to model the cortic al connections of a cat's brain, supported with data from experimental studies. This book is particularly suited for graduatestudents and nonspecialists from related fields with a general science background, looking for a substantial but hands-on introduc tion to the subject matter

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume covers extensions of the Rasch model, one of the most researched and applied models in educational research and social science. This collection contains 22 chapters by some of the most recognized international expertsin the field. They co ver topics ranging from general model extensions to applications in fields as diverse as cognition, personality, organizational and sports psychology, and health sciences and education. The Rasch model is designedfor categorical data, often collected as e xaminees' responses to multiple tasks such as cognitive items from psychological tests or from educational assessments. The Rasch model's elegant mathematical form is suitable for extensionsthat allow for greater flexibility in handling complex samples of examinees and collections of tasks from different domains. In these extensions, the Rasch model is enhanced by additional structural elements that either account fordifferences between diverse populations or for differences among observed variables. Rese arch on extending well-known statistical tools like regression, mixture distribution, and hierarchical linear models has led to the adoption ofRasch model features to handle categorical observed variables. We maintain both perspectives in the volume and s how how these merged modelsRasch models with a more complex item or population structureare derived either from theRasch model or from a structural model, how they are estimated, and where they are applied. Matthias von Davier is a Senior Research Scienti st in the Research & Development Division at Educational Testing Service. He is the author ofWINMIRA, a software package for estimating latent class models, mixture distribution Rasch models, and hybrid Rasch models. The software grew out of his work with colleagues at the Methodology Department of the Institute for ScienceEducation (IPN) in Kiel, Germany.
