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:Understanding Complex Urban Systems: Multidisciplinary Approaches to Modeling [electronic resource]
Author(s): Christian Walloth
Jens Martin Gurr
J. Alexander Schmidt
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Understanding Complex Urban Systems takes as its point of departure the insight that the challenges of global urbanization and the complexity of urban systems cannot be understood let alone managed by sectoral anddisciplinary approaches alone. But while there has recently been significant progress in broadening and refining the methodologies for the quantitative modeling of complex urban systems, in deepening the theoretical understanding ofcities as complex systems, or in illuminating the implicat ions for urban planning, there is still a lack of well-founded conceptual thinking on the methodological foundations and the strategies of modeling urban complexity across thedisciplines. Bringing together experts from the fields of urban and spatial plan ning, ecology, urban geography, real estate analysis, organizational cybernetics, stochastic optimization, and literary studies, as well as specialists invarious systems approaches and in transdisciplinary methodologies of urban analysis, the volume seeks to advance the discussion on multidisciplinary approaches to urban modeling. While engaging with the state of the art in theirrespective fields, the contributions are specifically written for both experts from a broad range of disciplines as well as for urban practitioners who feel the need for new approaches given the uncertainty of current developments

Title:Complexity in Financial Markets [electronic resource] : Modeling Psychological Behavior in Agent-Based Models and Order Book Models
Author(s): Matthieu Cristelli
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Tools and methods from complex systems science can have a considerable impact on the way in which the quantitative assessment of economic and financial issues is approached, as discussed in this thesis. Firstit is shownthatthe self-organization of fi nancial markets is a crucial factor in the understanding of their dynamics. In fact, using an agent-based approach, it is argued that financial markets stylized facts appear only in the self-organizedstate. Secondly, the thesis points out the potential of so-called big data science for financial market modeling, investigating how web-driven data canyield a picture ofmarket activities: it has been found that web query volumesanticipate trade volumes. As a third achievement, the metrics developed herefor co untry competitiveness and product complexity is groundbreaking incomparison to mainstream theories of economic growth and technological development.A key element in assessing the intangible variables determining the success of countries in the present glo balized economy is represented by the diversification of the productive basket of countries. The comparison between the level ofcomplexity of a country's productive system and economic indicators such as the GDP per capita discloses its hidden growth pote ntial

Note:Risk management for financial institutions is one of the key topics the financial industry has to deal with. The present volume is a mathematically rigorous text on solvency modeling. Currently, there are many new developments inthis area in the fina ncial and insurance industry (Basel III and Solvency II), but none of these developments provides a fully consistent and comprehensive framework for the analysis of solvency questions. Merz and Wthrich combineideas from financial mathematics (no-arbitrage theory, equivalent martingale measure), actuarial sciences (insurance claims modeling, cash flow valuation) and economic theory (risk aversion, probability distortion) to provide a fullyconsistent framework. Within this framework they then study solvency questions in incomplete markets, analyze hedging risks, and study asset-and-liability management questions, as well as issues like the limited liability options,dividend to shareholder questions, the role of re-insurance, etc. This work embeds the solven cy discussion (and long-term liabilities) into a scientific framework and is intended for researchers as well as practitioners in thefinancial and actuarial industry, especially those in charge of internal risk management systems. Readers should have a go od background in probability theoryand statistics, and should be familiar with popular distributions,stochastic processes, martingales, etc

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

Note:In recent years there has been a significant increase of interest in continuous-time Principal-Agent models, or contract theory, and their applications. Continuous-time models provide a powerful and elegant framework for solvingstochastic optimizatio n problems of finding the optimal contracts between two parties, under various assumptions on the information they have access to, and the effect they have on the underlying profit/loss values. This monographsurveys recent results of the theory in a syste matic way, using the approach of the so-called Stochastic Maximum Principle, in models driven by Brownian Motion. Optimal contracts are characterized via a system of Forward-BackwardStochastic Differential Equations. In a number of interesting special cas es these can be solved explicitly, enabling derivation of many qualitative economic conclusions

Note:New Perspectives in Partial Least Squares and Related Methodsshares original, peer-reviewed research from presentations during the 2012 partial least squares methods meeting (PLS 2012). This was the 7th meeting in the series ofPLS conferences and the first to take place in the USA. PLS is an abbreviation for Partial Least Squares and is also sometimes expanded asprojection to latent structures. This is an approach for modeling relations between datamatrices of different types of variables measured on the same set of objects. The twenty-two papers in this volume, which include three invited contributions from our keynote speakers, provide a comprehensive overview of the currentstate of the most advanced research related to PLS and related methods. Pro minent scientists from around the world took part in PLS 2012 and their contributions covered the multiple dimensions of the partial least squares-basedmethods. These exciting theoretical developments ranged frompartial least squaresregression and correla tion, component based path modelingto regularized regression and subspace visualization. In following the tradition of the sixprevious PLS meetings, these contributions also included a large variety of PLS approaches such as PLS metamodels, variable selec tion, sparse PLS regression, distance based PLS, significance vs. reliability, and non-linear PLS.Finally, these contributions applied PLS methods to data originating from the traditional econometric/economic data to genomics data, brain images, informati on systems, epidemiology, and chemical spectroscopy. Such a broad andcomprehensive volume will also encourage new uses of PLS models in work by researchers and students in many fields

Note:This work aims to foster the interdisciplinary dialogue between mathematicians and socio-economic scientists. Interaction among scholars and practitioners traditionally coming from different research areas is necessary more thanever in order to bette r understand many real-world problems we face today. On the one hand, mathematicians need economists and social scientists to better address the methodologies they design in a more realistic way on the otherhand, economists and social scientists need to be aware of sound mathematical modelling tools in order to understand and, ultimately, solve the complex problems they encounter in their research. With this goal in mind, this work isdesigned to take into account a multidisciplinary approach that will e ncourage the transfer of knowledge, ideas, and methodology from one discipline to the other. In particular, the work has three main themes: Demystifying andunravelling complex systems Introducing models of individual behaviours in the social and economic sciences Modelling socio-economic sciences as complex living systems. Specific tools examined in the work include a recentlydeveloped modelling approach using stochastic game theory within the framework of statistical mechanics and progressing up to mod eling Darwinian evolution. Special attention is also devoted to social network theory as a fundamentalinstrument for the understanding of socio-economic systems

Title:Why Society is a Complex Matter [electronic resource] : Meeting Twenty-first Century Challenges with a New Kind of Science

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

Note:What are the principles that keep our society together? This question is even more difficult to answer than the long-standing question, what are the forces that keep our world together. However, the social challenges of humanityin the 21st century ra nging from the financial crises to the impacts of globalization, require us to make fast progress in our understanding of how society works, and how our future can be managed in a resilient and sustainable way.This book can present only a few very first s teps towards this ambitious goal. However, based on simple models of social interactions, one can already gain some surprising insights into the social, ``macro-level'' outcomes and dynamicsthat is implied by individual, ``micro-level'' interactions. Depe nding on the nature of these interactions, they may imply the spontaneous formation of social conventions or the birth of social cooperation, but also their suddenbreakdown. This can end in deadly crowd disasters or tragedies of the commons (such as finan cial crises or environmental destruction). Furthermore, we demonstrate that classical modeling approaches (such as representative agent models)do not provide a sufficient understanding of the self-organization in social systems resulting from individual i nteractions. The consideration of randomness, spatial or network interdependencies, and nonlinear feedback effects turnsout to be crucial to get fundamental insights into how social patterns and dynamics emerge. Given the explanation of sometimes counter- intuitive phenomena resulting from these features and their combination, our evolutionary modelingapproach appears to be powerful and insightful. The chapters of this book range from a discussion of the modeling strategy for socio-economic systems over ex perimental issues up the right way of doing agent-based modeling. Wefurthermore discuss applications ranging from pedestrian and crowd dynamics over opinion formation, coordination, and cooperation up

Note:Water supply- and drainage systems and mixed water channel systems are networks whose high dynamic is determined and/or affected by consumer habits on drinking water on the one hand and by climate conditions, in particularrainfall, on the other hand. According to their size, water networks consist of hundreds or thousands of system elements. Moreover, different types of decisions (continuous and discrete) have to be taken in the water management. Thenetworks have to be optimized in terms of topology and operation by targeting a variety of criteria. Criteria may for example be economic, social or ecological ones and may compete with each other. The development of complex modelsystems and their use for deriving optimal decisions in water management is taking place at a rapid pace. Simulation and optimization methods originating in Operations Research have been used for several decades usually with verylimited direct cooperation with applied mathematics. The research presented here aims at bridging this gap, thereby opening up space for synergies and innovation. It is directly applicable for relevant practical problems and has beencarried out in cooperation with utility and dumping companies, infrastructure providers and planning offices. A close and di rect connection to the practice of water management has been established by involving application-orientedknow-how from the field of civil engineering. On the mathematical side all necessary disciplines were involved, including mixed-integer optimization, multi-objective and facility location optimization, numerics for cross-linked dynamictransportation systems and optimization as well as control of hybrid systems. Most of the presented research has been supported by the joint project Discret-continuous o ptimization of dynamic water systems of the federalministry of education and research (BMBF)

Note:The prevalence of imperfect structures, externalities, and imperfect information in existing market systems prevents the marketfrom serving asan efficient mechanism for resource allocation. In the presence ofsuch failures,optimization of economic act ivities provides an effective remedial measure. Cooperative optimization suggests the possibility of socially optimal and individually rational solutions to decision problems involving strategic action overtime however,to guarantee that cooperation will l ast throughout the agreement period,the stringent condition ofsubgame consistencyis required. This textbook presents a treatise on subgame consistent economicoptimization,developing game-theoretic optimization techniquesto establish the foundation for an effective policy menu to tackle sub-optimalcircumstancesthat the conventional market mechanism fails to resolve.Topics coveredinclude: * dynamic optimization * group optimality and individual rationality * time (optimal-trajectory-subgame) consistent econ omic optimization * dynamic economic optimization under uncertainty and subgame consistency *dynamically stable joint ventures * collaborative environmental management * discrete-time subgame consistent economic optimization. This is the first bookto thor oughly addressthe topic of subgame consistent economicoptimization.It will be of particular interest as a research reference forgame theorists, economists, mathematicians, policy makers, and corporate planners. With ample problems and exercises, it is als oauseful textforgraduate students in game theory

Note:Optimization problems involving uncertain data arise in many areas of industrial and economic applications. Stochastic programming provides a useful framework for modeling and solving optimization problems for which a probabilitydistribution of the u nknown parameters is available. Motivated by practical optimization problems occurring in energy systems with regenerative energy supply, Debora Mahlke formulates and analyzes multistage stochastic mixed-integermodels. For their solution, the author propo ses a novel decomposition approach which relies on the concept of splitting the underlying scenario tree into subtrees. Based on the formulated models from energy production, the algorithm iscomputationally investigated and the numerical results are discu ssed

Title:Control of Complex Nonlinear Systems with Delay [electronic resource]

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This research addresses delay effects in nonlinear systems, which are ubiquitous in various fields of physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, and even in social and economic systems. They may arise as a result of processingtimes or due to the finit e propagation speed of information between the constituents of a complex system. Time delay has two complementary, counterintuitive and almost contradictory facets. On the one hand, delay is able to induceinstabilities, bifurcations of periodic and more c omplicated orbits, multi-stability and chaotic motion. On the other hand, it can suppress instabilities, stabilize unstable stationary or periodic states and may control complex chaoticdynamics. This thesis deals with both aspects, and presents novel fund amental results on the controllability of nonlinear dynamics by time-delayed feedback, as well as applications to lasers, hybrid-mechanical systems, and coupledneural systems

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This monograph, a sequel to the author's highly successfull A Mathematical Treatment of Economic Cooperation and Competition Among Nations: With Nigeria, USA, UK, China and Middle East Examples (Academic Press, 2005),extends the study to all member s tates of the United Nations. It derives the equations of the key economic variables of gross domestic product, interest rate, employment value of capital stock prices (inflation) and cumulative balanceof payment. The derivation is based on the differentia l market principle of supply and demand and on the rational expectation principle. The models are validated using economic time series of each country and MATLAB programs. Theemerging dynamics is a differential game of pursuit which is converted to a here ditary control system for a single nation. Following the same method we derive the full hereditary economic model of all members of the United Nationsjoined together by external trade, investment capital flow consumption employment and governments' econom ic intervention all mirrored by interacting gross domestic products. The system is validated with IMF and World Bank data.Studies are made on how to arrest economic recession and depression and promote economic growth and prosperity. Diffusion of wealth is also touched upon. Policies regarding economic stimulus, how to dam the decay of capital flow, aswell as conditions to promote full employment are discussed. Examination is made to test for the global systems controllability the possibility of steerin g any current bad economic state to a state of growth of its GDP, lowinterest rate, full employment, good value of capital stock, low inflation and a positive value of the cumulative balance of payments. The book prescribes verifiable broad policies for a ll nations together to promote prosperity,diffusion of wealth and longevity.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Mathematical modeling using dynamical systems and partial differential equations is now playing an increasing role in the understanding of complex multi-scale phenomena. Behavior in seemingly different areas such as sociology,economics, and the life sciences can be described by closely related models. Systems made out of a large enough number of individual members can be said to exhibit a collective behavior, from which insight can be gathered in a way thatreal-life experiments cannot. Using examples from financial markets and modern warfare to the flocking of birds and the swarming of bacteria, the collected research in this volume demonstrates the common methodological approaches andtools for modeling and simulating collective behavior. Specific to pics covered include: * analysis of wealth distributions * dynamics of price formation * spreading of opinions * models of social behavior * population dynamics *aggregation and swarming The topics presented point toward new and challenging frontiers of a pplied mathematics, making the volume a useful reference text for applied mathematicians, physicists, biologists, and economists involved inthe modeling of socio-economic systems

Note:Hardly a day goes by without news headlines concerning infectious disease threats. Currently the spectre of a pandemic of influenza A|H1N1 is raising its head, and heated debates are taking place about the pros and cons ofvaccinating young girls agai nst human papilloma virus. For an evidence-based and responsible communication of infectious disease topics to avoid misunderstandings and overreaction of the public, we need solid scientific knowledge andan understanding of all aspects of infectious dise ases and their control. The aim of our book is to present the reader with the general picture and the main ideas of the subject. The book introduces the reader to methodological aspectsof epidemiology that are specific for infectious diseases and provides insight into the epidemiology of some classes of infectious diseases characterized by their main modes of transmission. This choice of topics bridges the gapbetween scientific research on the clinical, biological, mathematical, social and economic aspect s of infectious diseases and their applications in public health. The book will help the reader to understand the impact of infectiousdiseases on modern society and the instruments that policy makers have at their disposal to deal with these challenges. I t is written for students of the health sciences, both of curative medicine and public health, and for expertsthat are active in these and related domains, and it may be of interest for the educated layman since the technical level is kept relatively low. The authors are internationally renowned experts in the field of infectious diseaseepidemiology. The editors come from different scientific backgrounds but have been devoted to research in infectious disease epidemiology for many years.

Note:Inventories are prevalent everywhere in the commercial world, whether it be in retail stores, manufacturing facilities, government stockpile material, Federal Reserve banks, or even your own household. This textbook examines basicmathematical techniq ues used to sufficiently manage inventories by using various computational methods and mathematical models. Such models discussed include: EOQ model and extensions, power-of-two models, single and multi-periodmodels, probabilistic lot sizing models, multi -echelon stochastic models, Laplace and Normal demand models, exact Poisson model, and many more. Principles of Inventory Management begins with an introductory chapter in which the basicsof inventory systems and mathematical assumptions for all models ar e grouped together. The text is presented in a way such that each section can be read independently, and so the order in which the reader approaches the book can beinconsequential. It contains both deterministic and stochastic models along with algorithms that can be employed to find solutions to a variety of inventory control problems. Key topics include: * Economic order quantity (EOQ) model *Power-of-two policies * Dynamic lot sizing * Single and multi-period stochastic models * Echelon-based approache s * Multi-echelon systems * Single and multi-item models With exercises at the end of each chapter and a clear, systematicexposition, this textbook will appeal to advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate students in operations research, industrial e ngineering, and quantitative MBA programs. It also serves as a reference for professionals in bothindustry and government worlds. The prerequisite courses include introductory optimization methods, probability theory (non-measure theoretic), and stochasti c processes

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:The study of discrete structures and networks becomes more and more important in decision theory. A relevant topic in modern control theory reflecting this fact is concerned with multiobjective control problems and dynamicalgames. The monograph prese nts recent developments and applications in the field of multiobjective control of time-discrete systems with a finite set of states. The dynamics of such systems is described by a directed graph in which eachvertex corresponds to a dynamic state and the edges correspond to transitions of the system moving from one state to another. This characterization allows us to formulate the considered control models on special dynamic networks.Suitable algorithms are derived exploiting multilayered structures. Game theoretical properties are characterized. A multilayered game on a network can be used to model a certain trading procedure of emission certificates within Kyotoprocess. Optimal economic behavior and equilibria can be determined

Note:This second edition book focuses on planning and scheduling applications with a new chapter on planning and scheduling in health care. Planning and scheduling are forms of decision-making that play an important role in mostmanufacturing and services industries. The planning and scheduling functions in a company typically use analytical techniques and heuristic methods to allocate its limited resources to the activities that have to be done. Theapplication areas considered in this book are divided int o manufacturing applications and services applications. The book covers four areas in planning and scheduling: preliminary scheduling, planning and scheduling in manufacturing,planning and scheduling in services and systems development and implementation. It covers four areas in services: reservations and timetabling, tournament scheduling, planning and scheduling in transportation, planning and sheduling inhealthcare and workforce scheduling. At the end of each chapter, a case study or a system implementa tion is described in detail. Numerous examples and exercises throughout the book illustrate the material presented. The fundamentalsconcerning the methodologies used in the application chapters are covered in the appendices. This book is suitable for more advanced students in industrial engineering and operations research as well as graduate students in business.Michael Pinedo is the Julius Schlesinger Professor of Operations Management in the Stern School of Business at New York University. His research interests lie in the theoretical and applied aspects of planning and scheduling. He haswritten numerous papers on the theory of deterministic and stochastic scheduling and has also consulted extensively in industry. He has been actively involved in the de velopment of several large industrial planning and schedulingsystems.

Note:Global warming, shortage of low-cost oil resources and the increasing demand for energy are currently controlling the world's economic expansion while often opposing desires for sustainable and peaceful development. In thiscontext, atomic energy sati sfactorily fulfills the criteria of low carbon gas production and high overall yield. However, in the absence of industrial fast-breeders the use of nuclear fuel is not optimal, and the production of highactivity waste materials is at a maximum. These are the principal reasons for the development of a new, fourth generation of nuclear reactors, minimizing the undesirable side-effects of current nuclear energy production technologywhile increasing yields by increasing operation temperatures and opening the way for the industrial production of hydrogen through the decomposition of water. The construction and use of such reactors is hindered by several factors,including performance limitations of known structural materials, particularly if the life of the pr ojected systems had to extend over the periods necessary to achieve low costs (at least 60 years). This book collects lectures andseminars presented at the homonymous NATO ASI held in autumn 2007 at the Institut dEtudes Scientifiques in Cargse, France. Th e adopted approach aims at improving and coordinating basic knowledge in materials science andengineering with specific areas of condensed matter physics, the physics of particle/matter interaction and of radiation damage. It is our belief that this metho dology is crucially conditioning the development and the industrialproduction of new structural materials capable of coping with the requirements of these future reactors

Note:Using tools from mathematical kinetic theory and stochastic game theory, this work deals with the modeling of large complex systems in the applied sciences, particularly those comprised of several interacting individuals whosedynamics follow rules de termined by some organized, or even intelligent ability. Traditionally, methods of mathematical kinetic theory have been applied to model the evolution of large systems of interacting classical or quantumparticles. This book, on the other hand, examines t he modeling of living systems as opposed to inert systems. The author develops new mathematical methods and toolshopefully a new mathematicstoward the modeling of livingsystems. Such tools need to be far more complex than those dealing with systems of ine rt matter. The first part of the book deals with deriving general evolution equations that can be customized to particular systems of interest in theapplied sciences. The second part of the book deals with various models and applications. The presentation unfolds using the following common approach in each chapter: * Phenomenological interpretation of the physical system in thecontext of mathematical modeling * Derivation of the mathematical model using methods from mathematical kinetic theory for active particles * Simulations, parameter sensitivity analysis, and critical inspection of the derived modeltowards validation * Overview of presented ideas to improve existing models, with special emphasis on applications Specific topics covered include: * Mode ling of the competition between cells of an aggressive invasive agent and cellsof the immune system * Modeling of vehicular traffic flow * Modeling of swarms and crowd dynamics in complex geometric environments * Methodological aspects related to multisca le modeling of large systems viewed as interconnectedsubsystems Modeling Complex Living Systems is a valuable resource for applied mathematicians, engineers, physicists, biologists, economists

Title:Convergence and Applications of Newton-type Iterations [electronic resource]
Author(s): Ioannis K Argyros
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:Recent results in local convergence and semi-local convergence analysis constitute a natural framework for the theoretical study of iterative methods. This monograph provides a comprehensive study of both basic theory and newresults in the area. Each chapter contains new theoretical results and important applications in engineering, modeling dynamic economic systems, input-output systems, optimization problems, and nonlinear and linear differentialequations. Several classes of operators are considere d, including operators without Lipschitz continuous derivatives, operators with high order derivatives, and analytic operators. Each section is self-contained. Examples are used toillustrate the theory and exercises are included at the end of each chapter . The book assumes a basic background in linear algebra and numerical functional analysis. Graduate students and researchers will find this book useful. It maybe used as a self-study reference or as a supplementary text for an advanced course in numerical functional analysis

Title:Complexity Hints for Economic Policy [electronic resource]

Note:This volume extends the complexity approach to economics. This complexity approach is not a completely new way of doing economics, and that it is a replacement for existing economics, but rather the integration of some newanalytic and computational t echniques into economists bag of tools. It provides some alternative pattern generators, which can supplement existing approaches by providing an alternative way of finding patterns than be obtained bythe traditional scientific approach. On this new kind of policy hints can be obtained. The reason why the complexity approach is taking hold now in economics is because the computing technology has advanced. This advance allowsconsideration of analytical systems that could not previously be considered by eco nomists. Consideration of these systems suggested that the results of the control-based models might not extend easily to more complicated systems,and that we now have a methodpiggybacking computer assisted analysis onto analytic methodsto start generatin g patterns that might provide a supplement to the standard approach. It is that approach that we consider the complexityapproach. The papers in this volume develop these ideas. In terms of policy the papers suggest that economists should become a bit less certain in their policy conclusions, and that they expand their bag of tools supplementing theirstandard model with some additional models including (1) agent based models, in which one does not use analytics to develop the pattern, but instead one uses computational power to deal with specification of models that are far beyondanalytic solution and (2) non-linear dynamic stochastic models many of which are beyond analytic solution, but whose nature can be discovered by a combination of analytics and com puter simulations. The volume is divided into foursections: general issues, modeling issues, applications, and policy issues. Each struggles with complicated ideas related to our general the
