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:Statistical Learning from a Regression Perspective [electronic resource]
Author(s): Richard A Berk
Date:2008
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Statistical Learning from a Regression Perspective considers statistical learning applications when interest centers on the conditional distribution of the response variable, given a set of predictors, and when it is important tocharacterize how the predictors are related to the response. As a first approximation, this is can be seen as an extension of nonparametric regression. Among the statistical learning procedures examined are bagging, random forests,boosting, and support vector machines. Respon se variables may be quantitative or categorical. Real applications are emphasized, especially those with practical implications. One important theme is the need to explicitly take intoaccount asymmetric costs in the fitting process. For example, in some s ituations false positives may be far less costly than false negatives. Another important theme is to not automatically cede modeling decisions to a fittingalgorithm. In many settings, subject-matter knowledge should trump formal fitting criteria. Yet anot her important theme is to appreciate the limitation of ones data and not apply statistical learning procedures that require morethan the data can provide. The material is written for graduate students in the social and life sciences and for researchers wh o want to apply statistical learning procedures to scientific and policy problems. Intuitive explanationsand visual representations are prominent. All of the analyses included are done in R. Richard Berk is Distinguished Professor of Statistics Emeritus f rom the Department of Statistics at UCLA and currently a Professor at the Universityof Pennsylvania in the Department of Statistics and in the Department of Criminology. He is an elected fellow of the American Statistical Association and the American Asso ciation for the Advancement of Science and has served in aprofessional capacity with a number of organizations such as the Committee on Applied and Theoretical Statistics for the National Research Co
