Title:Input Modeling with Phase-Type Distributions and Markov Models [electronic resource] : Theory and Applications
Author(s): Peter Buchholz
Jan Kriege
Iryna Felko
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Containing a summary of several recent results on Markov-based input modeling in a coherent notation, this book introduces and compares algorithms for parameter fitting and gives an overview of available software tools in thearea. Due to progress mad e in recent years with respect to new algorithms to generate PH distributions and Markovian arrival processes from measured data, the models outlined are useful alternatives to other distributions or stochasticprocesses used for input modeling. Graduate s tudents and researchers in applied probability, operations research and computer science along with practitioners using simulation or analytical models for performance analysis and capacityplanning will find the unified notation and up-to-date results pre sented useful. Input modeling is the key step in model based system analysis to adequately describe the load of a system using stochastic models. The goal of inputmodeling is to find a stochastic model to describe a sequence ofmeasurements from a real sys tem to model for example the inter-arrival times of packets in a computer network or failure times of components in a manufacturing plant.Typical application areas are performance and dependability analysis of computer systems, communication networks, log istics or manufacturing systems but also the analysis of biological or chemical reaction networks and similarproblems. Often the measured values have a high variability and are correlated. Its been known for a long time that Markov based models like phase type distributions or Markovian arrival processes are very general and allow one tocapture even complex behaviors. However, the parameterization of these models results often in a complex and non-linear optimization problem. Only recently, several new re sults about the modeling capabilities of Markov based models andalgorithms to fit the parameters of those models have been published

Title:Algorithms and Dynamical Models for Communities and Reputation in Social Networks [electronic resource]
Author(s): Vincent Traag
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:A persistent problem when finding communities in large complex networks is the so-called resolution limit. This thesis addresses this issue meticulously, and introduces the important notion of resolution-limit-free. Remarkably,only few methods posses s this desirable property, and this thesis puts forward one such method. Moreover, it discusses how to asses whether communities can occur by chance or not. One aspect that is often ignored in this field istreated here: links can also be negative, as in w ar or conflict. Besides how to incorporate this in community detection, it also examines the dynamics of such negative links, inspired by a sociological theory known as social balance.This has intriguing connections to the evolution of cooperation, sugges ting that for cooperation to emerge, groups often split in two opposing factions. In addition to these theoretical contributions, the thesis also contains anempirical analysis of the effect of trading communities on international conflict, and how communi ties form in a citation network with positive and negative links

Title:Networks of Echoes [electronic resource] : Imitation, Innovation and Invisible Leaders
Author(s): Bruce J West
Malgorzata Turalska
Paolo Grigolini
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Networks of Echoes: Imitation, Innovation and Invisible Leaders is a mathematically rigorous and data rich book on a fascinating area of the science and engineering of social webs. There are hundreds of complex networkphenomena whose statistical prop erties are described by inverse power laws. The phenomena of interest are not arcane events that we encounter only fleetingly, but are events that dominate our lives. We examine how this intermittentstatistical behavior intertwines itself with what appear s to be the organized activity of social groups. The book is structured as answers to a sequence of questions such as: How are decisions reached in elections and boardrooms?How is the stability of a society undermined by zealots and committed minorities, and how is that stability re-established? Can we learn to answer such questions about human behavior by studying the way flocks of birds retain theirformation when eluding a predator? These questions and others are answered using a generic model of a comp lex dynamic networkone whose global behavior is determined by a symmetric interaction among individuals based on socialimitation.The complexity of the network is manifest in time series resulting from self-organized critical dynamics that have divergent f irst and second moments, are non-stationary, non-ergodic, and non-Poisson. How phasetransitions in the network dynamics influence such activity as decision making is a fascinating story and provides a context for introducing many of the mathematical ideas necessary for understanding complex networks in general. Thedecision making model (DMM) is selected to emphasize that there are features of complex webs that supersede specific mechanisms and need to be understood from a general perspective. This insight ful overview of recent tools and theiruses may serve as an introduction and curriculum guide in related courses

Title:Networks and Network Analysis for Defence and Security [electronic resource]
Author(s): Anthony J Masys
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Networks and Network Analysis for Defence and Security discusses relevant theoretical frameworks and applications of network analysis in support of the defence and security domains. This book details real world applications ofnetwork analysis to supp ort defence and security. Shocks to regional, national and global systems stemming from natural hazards, acts of armed violence, terrorism and serious and organized crime have significant defence and securityimplications. Today, nations face an uncertain and complex security landscape in which threats impact/target the physical, social, economic and cyber domains. Threats to national security, such as that against critical infrastructuresnot only stem from man-made acts but also from natural hazards. Katr ina (2005), Fukushima (2011) and Hurricane Sandy (2012) are examples highlighting the vulnerability of critical infrastructures to natural hazards and the cripplingeffect they have on the social and economic well-being of a community and a nation. With th is dynamic and complex threat landscape, network analysis has emerged as a key enabler in supporting defence and security. With the advent ofbig data and increasing processing power, network analysis can reveal insights with regards to structural and dyna mic properties thereby facilitating greater understanding of complex networks, their entities, interdependencies,vulnerabilities to produce insights for creative solutions. This book will be well positioned to inform defence, security and intelligence pro fessionals and researchers with regards to leading methodologies and approaches

Title:Networks of Networks: The Last Frontier of Complexity [electronic resource]
Author(s): Gregorio D'Agostino
Antonio Scala
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The present work is meant as a reference to provide an organic and comprehensive view of the most relevant results in the exciting new field of Networks of Networks (NetoNets). Seminal papers have recently been published posingthe basis to study what happens when different networks interact, thus providing evidence for the emergence of new, unexpected behaviors and vulnerabilities. From those seminal works, the awareness on the importance understandingNetworks of Networks (NetoNets) has spread to the entire community of Complexity Science. The reader will benefit from the experience of some of the most well-recognized leaders in this field. The contents have been aggregated underfour headings General Theory, Phenomenology, Applications and Risk Asses sment. The reader will be impressed by the different applications of the general paradigm that span from physiology, to financial risk, to transports. We arecurrently making the first steps to reduce the distance between the language and the way of thinki ng of the two communities of experts in real infrastructures and the complexity scientists. Although this path may prove to be long, itis extremely promising, both in extending our understanding of complex systems and in finding concrete applications that can enhance the life quality of millions of people

Title:International Conference on Theory and Application in Nonlinear Dynamics (ICAND 2012) [electronic resource]
Author(s): Visarath In
Antonio Palacios
Patrick Longhini
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:A collection of different lectures presented by experts in the field of nonlinear science provides the reader with contemporary, cutting-edge, research works that bridge the gap between theory and device realizations of nonlinearphenomena. Represent ative examples of topics covered include: chaos gates, social networks, communication, sensors, lasers, molecular motors, biomedical anomalies, stochastic resonance, nano-oscillators for generating microwavesignals and related complex systems. A common th eme among these and many other related lectures is to model, study, understand, and exploit the rich behavior exhibited by nonlinear systems to design and fabricate novel technologieswith superior characteristics. Consider, for instance, the fact that a s harks sensitivity to electric fields is 400 times more powerful than the most sophisticated electric-field sensor. In spite of significant advances in materialproperties, in many cases it remains a daunting task to duplicate the superior signal processing capabilities of most animals. Since nonlinear systems tend to be highly sensitive to perturbations when they occur near the onset of abifurcation, there are also lectures on the general topic of bifurcation theory and on how to exploit such bifurcations for signal enhancements purposes. This manuscript will appeal to researchers interested in both theory andimplementations of nonlinear systems.

Title:Mathematical Modelling of the Cell Cycle Stress Response [electronic resource]
Author(s): Elahe Radmaneshfar
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The cell cycle is a sequence of biochemical events that are controlled by complex but robust molecular machinery. This enables cells to achieve accurate self-reproduction under a broad range of conditions. Environmental changesare transmitted by mole cular signaling networks, which coordinate their actions with the cell cycle. Thiswork presents the first description oftwo complementary computational modelsdescribing the influence of osmotic stress onthe entire cell cycle of S. cerevisiae. Our models condense a vast amount of experimental evidence on the interaction of the cell cycle network components with the osmotic stress pathway. Importantly, it is only by considering theentire cell cycle that we are able to make a series of novel predictions whi ch emerge from the coupling between the molecular components of different cell cycle phases. The model-based predictions are supported by experiments in S.cerevisiae and, moreover, have recently been observed in other eukaryotes. Furthermore our models r eveal the mechanisms that emerge as a result of the interaction between the cell cycle and stress response networks

Title:Towards Autonomous Soft Matter Systems [electronic resource] : Experiments on Membranes and Active Emulsions
Author(s): Shashi Thutupalli
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book focuses on the assembly, organization and resultant collective dynamics of soft matter systems maintained away from equilibrium byan energy flux. Living matter is the ultimate example of such systems, which arecomprised of different constit uents on very different scales (ions, nucleic acids, proteins, cells). The result of their diverse interactions, maintained using the energy from physiological processes, is a fantastically well-organizedand dynamic whole. This work describes results from minimal, biomimetic systems and primarily investigates membranes and active emulsions, as well as key aspects of both soft matter and non-equilibrium phenomena. It isshown thatthese minimal reconstitutions are already capable of a range of complex behavi our such as nonlinear electric responses, chemical communication and locomotion. These studies will bring us closer to a fundamental understanding of complexsystems by reconstituting key aspects of their form and function in simple model systems. Further, they may also serve as the first technological steps towards artificial soft functional matter

Note:Complex system theory is rapidly developing and gaining importance, providing tools and concepts central to our modern understanding of emergent phenomena. This primer offers an introduction to this area together with detailedcoverage of the mathemat ics involved. All calculations are presented step by step and are straightforward to follow. This new third edition comes with new material, figures and exercises. Network theory, dynamical systems andinformation theory, the core of modern complex system sciences, are developed in the first three chapters, covering basic concepts and phenomena like small-world networks, bifurcation theory and information entropy. Further chaptersuse a modular approach to address the most important concepts in complex syst em sciences, with the emergence and self-organization playing a central role. Prominent examples are self-organized criticality in adaptive systems, life atthe edge of chaos, hypercycles and coevolutionary avalanches, synchronization phenomena, absorbing phase transitions and the cognitive system approach to the brain. Technical course prerequisites are the standard mathematical tools foran advanced undergraduate course in the natural sciences or engineering. Each chapter comes with exercises and suggesti ons for further reading - solutions to the exercises are provided in the last chapter. From the reviews of previouseditions: This is a very interesting introductory book written for a broad audience of graduate students in natural sciences and engineering . It can be equally well used both for teaching and self-education. Very well structured andevery topic is illustrated by simple and motivating examples. This is a true guidebook to the world of complex nonlinear phenomena. (Ilya Pavlyukevich, Zentralblat t MATH, Vol. 1146, 2008) Claudius Gros's Complex and AdaptiveDynamical Systems: A Primer is a welcome addition to the literature. .

Note:Complexity Science and Chaos Theory are fascinating areas of scientific research with wide-ranging applications. The interdisciplinary nature and ubiquity of complexity and chaos are features that provides scientists with amotivation to pursue genera l theoretical tools and frameworks. Complex systems give rise to emergent behaviors, which in turn produce novel and interesting phenomena in science, engineering, as well as in the socio-economic sciences.The aim of all Symposia on Chaos and Complex Syst ems (CCS) is to bring together scientists, engineers, economists and social scientists, and to discuss the latest insights and results obtained in the area of correspondingnonlinear-system complex (chaotic) behavior. Especially for the 4th International I nterdisciplinary Chaos Symposium on Chaos and Complex Systems, which took place April 29th to May 2nd, 2012 in Antalya, Turkey, the scope of thesymposium had been further enlarged so as to encompass the presentation of work from circuits to econophysics, and from nonlinear analysis to the history of chaos theory. The corresponding proceedings collected in this volumeaddress a broad spectrum of contemporary topics, including but not limited to networks, circuits, systems, biology, evolution and ecology, n onlinear dynamics and pattern formation, as well as neural, psychological, psycho-social,socio-economic, management complexity and global systems

Title:Consensus and Synchronization in Complex Networks [electronic resource]

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

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:As well as highlighting potentially useful applications for network analysis, this volume identifies new targets for mathematical research that promise to provide insights into network systems theory as well as facilitating thecross-fertilization of ideas between sectors. Focusing on financial, security and social aspects of networking, the volume adds to the growing body of evidence showing that network analysis has applications to transportation,communication, health, finance, and social policy mor e broadly. It provides powerful models for understanding the behavior of complex systems that, in turn, will impact numerous cutting-edge sectors in science and engineering, such aswireless communication, network security, distributed computing and social networking, financial analysis, and cyber warfare. The volume offers an insider' s view of cutting-edge research in network systems, including methodologieswith immense potential for interdisciplinary application. The contributors have all presented mate rial at a series of workshops organized on behalf of Canadas MITACS initiative, which funds projects and study grants inmathematics for information technology and complex systems. These proceedings include papers from workshops on financial networks, netw ork security and cryptography, and social networks. MITACS has shown that the partlyghettoized nature of network systems research has led to duplicated work in discrete fields, and thus this initiative has the potential to save time and accelerate the pac e of research in a number of areas of network systemsresearch

Title:Temporal Patterns of Communication in Social Networks [electronic resource]
Author(s): Giovanna Miritello
Date:2013
Publisher:Heidelberg : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The main interest of this research has been in understanding and characterizing large networks of human interactions as continuously changing objects. In fact, although many real social networks are dynamic networks whose elementsand properties conti nuously change over time, traditional approaches to social network analysis are essentially static, thus neglecting all temporal aspects. Specifically, we have investigated the role that temporal patterns of humaninteraction play in three main fields of s ocial network analysis and data mining: characterization of time (or attention) allocation in social networks, prediction of link decay/persistence, and information spreading. In order toaddress this we analyzed large anonymized data sets of phone call co mmunication traces over long periods of time. Access to these observations was granted by Telefonica Research, Spain. The findings that emerge from our researchindicate that the observed heterogeneities and correlations of human temporal patterns of inter action significantly affect the traditional view of social networks, shifting from a very steady to a highly complex entity. Since structureand dynamics are tightly coupled, they cannot be disentangled in the analysis and modeling of human behavior, thoug h traditional models seek to do so. Our results impact not only the way in which social network are traditionallycharacterized, but more importantly also the understanding and modeling phenomena such as group formation, spread of epidemics, and the dissem ination of ideas, opinions and information

Note:Predicting the Future: Completing Models of Observed Complex Systems provides a general framework for the discussion of model building and validation across a broad spectrum of disciplines. This is accomplished through thedevelopment of an exact path integral for use in transferring information from observations to a model of the observed system. Through many illustrative examples drawn from models in neuroscience, fluid dynamics, geosciences, andnonlinear electrical circuits, the concepts are exempl ified in detail. Practical numerical methods for approximate evaluations of the path integral are explored, and their use in designing experiments and determining a model'sconsistency with observations is investigated. Using highly instructive examples, t he problems of data assimilation and the means to treat them are clearly illustrated. This book will be useful for students and practitioners ofphysics, neuroscience, regulatory networks, meteorology and climate science, network dynamics, fluid dynamics, and other systematic investigations of complex systems

Note:Strategic Economic Decision-Making: Using Bayesian Belief Networks to Solve Complex Problems is a quick primer on the topic that introduces readers to the basic complexities and nuances associated with learning Bayes theoryand inverse probability for the first time. This brief is meant for non-statisticians who are unfamiliar with Bayes theorem,walkingthem through the theoretical phases of set and sample set selection, the axioms of probability,probability theory as it pertains to Bayes theorem, and posterior probabilities. All of these concepts are explained as they appear in the methodology of fitting a Bayes model, and upon completion of the text readers will be ableto mathematically determine posterior probabilities of multiple independent nodes across any system available for study. Very little has been published in the area of discrete Bayes theory, and this brief will appeal tonon-statisticians conducting research in the fields of engineering, computing, life sciences, and social sciences.

Note:The goal of this book is to present a variety of methods used in multidimensional data visualization. The emphasis is placed on new research results and trends in this field, including optimization, artificial neural networks,combinations of algorith ms, parallel computing, different proximity measures, nonlinear manifold learning, and more. Many of the applications presented allow us to discover the obvious advantages of visual data miningit is mucheasier for a decision maker to detect or extract use ful information from graphical representation of data than from raw numbers. The fundamental idea of visualization is to provide data in some visual form that lets humans understandthem, gain insight into the data, draw conclusions, and directly influence the process of decision making. Visual data mining is a field where human participation is integrated in the data analysis process it covers data visualizationand graphical presentation of information. Multidimensional Data Visualization is intended for scientists and researchers in any field of study where complex and multidimensional data must be visually represented. It may also serve asa useful research supplement for PhD students in operations research, computer science, various fields of engineerin g, as well as natural and social sciences

Note:There are many examples of cooperation in Nature: cells cooperate to form tissues, organs cooperate to form living organisms, and individuals cooperate to raise their offspring or to hunt. However, why cooperation emerges andsurvives in hostile envir onments, when defecting would be a much more profitable short-term strategy, is a question that still remains open. During the past few years, several explanations have been proposed, including kin and groupselection, punishment and reputation mechanisms, or network reciprocity. This last one will be the center of the present study. The thesis explores the interface between the underlying structure of a given population and the outcome ofthe cooperative dynamics taking place on top of it, (namely, the Pri soner's Dilemma Game). The first part of this work analyzes the case of a static system, where the pattern of connections is fixed, so it does not evolve over time.The second part develops two models for growing topologies, where the growth and the dynami cs are entangled

Note:Chaos and nonlinear dynamics initially developed as a new emergent field with its foundation in physics and applied mathematics. The highly generic, interdisciplinary quality of the insights gained in the last few decades hasspawned myriad applicatio ns in almost all branches of science and technologyand even well beyond. Wherever the quantitative modeling and analysis of complex, nonlinear phenomena are required, chaos theory and its methods can play akey role. This second volume concentrates on rev iewing further relevant, contemporary applications of chaotic nonlinear systems as they apply to the various cutting-edge branches of engineering. This encompasses, but is notlimited to, topics such as the spread of epidemics electronic circuits chaos con trol in mechanical devices secure communication and digital watermarking. Featuring contributions from active and leading research groups, thiscollection is ideal both as a reference work and as a recipe book full of tried and tested, successful engineeri ng applications

Title:Why Society is a Complex Matter [electronic resource] : Meeting Twenty-first Century Challenges with a New Kind of Science
Author(s): Philip Ball
Date:2012
Edition:1
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource

Note:Society is complicated. But this book argues that this does not place it beyond the reach of a science that can help to explain and perhaps even to predict social behaviour. As a system made up of many interacting agents people, groups, institutions and governments, as well as physical and technological structures such as roads and computer networks society can be regarded as a complex system. In recent years, scientists have made great progress inunderstanding how such complex systems operate, rang ing from animal populations to earthquakes and weather. These systems show behaviours that cannot be predicted or intuited by focusing on the individual components, but which emergespontaneously as a consequence of their interactions: they are said to be self-organized. Attempts to direct or manage such emergent properties generally reveal that top-down approaches, which try to dictate a particularoutcome, are ineffectual, and that what is needed instead is a bottom-up approach that aims to guide self-org anization towards desirable states. This book shows how some of these ideas from the science of complexity can beapplied to the study and management of social phenomena, including traffic flow, economic markets, opinion formation and the growth and struct ure of cities. Building on these successes, the book argues that the complex-systems view ofthe social sciences has now matured sufficiently for it to be possible, desirable and perhaps essential to attempt a grander objective: to integrate these efforts into a unified scheme for studying, understanding and ultimatelypredicting what happens in the world we have made. Such a scheme would require the mobilization and collaboration of many different research communities, and would allow society and its inter actions with the physical environment to beexplored through realistic models and large-scale data collection and analysis. It should enable us to find new and effective solutions

Title:Models of Science Dynamics [electronic resource] : Encounters Between Complexity Theory and Information Sciences

Note:Models of science dynamics aim to capture the structure and evolution of science. They are developed in an emerging research area in which scholars, scientific institutions and scientific communications become themselves basicobjects of research. In order to understand phenomena as diverse as the structure of evolving co-authorship networks or citation diffusion patterns, different models have been developed. They include conceptual models based onhistorical and ethnographic observations, mathematica l descriptions of measurable phenomena, and computational algorithms. Despite its evident importance, the mathematical modeling of science still lacks a unifying framework and acomprehensive research agenda. This book aims to fill this gap, reviewing and describing major threads in the mathematical modeling of science dynamics for a wider academic and professional audience. The model classes presented herecover stochastic and statistical models, game-theoretic approaches, agent-based simulations, populati on-dynamics models, and complex network models. The book starts with a foundational chapter that defines and operationalizesterminology used in the study of science, and a review chapter that discusses the history of mathematical approaches to modeling sc ience from an algorithmic-historiography perspective. It concludes with a survey of future challengesfor science modeling and discusses their relevance for science policy and science policy studies
