Title:Physics of Societal Issues [electronic resource] : Calculations on National Security, Environment, and Energy
Author(s): David Hafemeister
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides the reader with essential tools needed to analyze complex societal issues and demonstrates the transition from physics to modern-day laws and treaties. This second edition features new equation-orientedmaterial and extensive data s ets drawing upon current information from experts in their fields. Problems to challenge the reader and extend discussion are presented on three timely issues: National Security:Weapons, Offense, Defense, Verification, Nuclear Proliferation, Terrorism Environment: Air/Water, Nuclear, Climate Change, EM Fields/Epidemiology Energy: Current Energy Situation, Buildings, SolarBuildings, Renewable Energy, Enhanced End-Use Efficiency, Transportation, Economics Praise for the first edition: This insight is n eeded in Congress and the Executive Branch. Hafemeister, a former Congressional fellow with wideWashington experience, has written a book for physicists, chemists and engineers who want to learn science and policy on weapons, energy, and the environment. Scientists who want to make a difference will want this book. RichardScribner, first Director, Congressional Science and Engineering Fellow Program, AAAS Hafemeister shows how much one can understand about nuclear weapons and missile issues through simpl e back-of-the-envelope calculations. He alsoprovides compact explanations of the partially successful attempts that have been made over the past 60 years to control these weapons of mass destruction. Hopefully, Physics of Societal Issues will help interes t a new generation ofphysicists in continuing this work. Frank von Hippel, Professor, Princeton, former Assistant Director, National Security, White House, OSTP Energy policy must be quantitative. People who don't calculate economic tradeoffs oftenchampi on simplistic hardware. The solution is more... nuclear power, or electric cars, or photovoltaics, etc. Some simple physics will s

Title:Advances in Network Analysis and its Applications [electronic resource]
Author(s): Evangelos Kranakis
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: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:Complex Systems and Society [electronic resource] : Modeling and Simulation

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
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

Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
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

Date:2011
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The purpose of this book is to introduce, discuss, illustrate, and evaluate the colorful palette of analytical techniques that can be applied to the analysis of household survey data, with an emphasis on the innovations of thepast decade or so. Most of the chapters begin by introducing a methodological or policy problem, to motivate the subsequent discussion of relevant methods. They then summarize the relevant techniques, and draw on examples many ofthem from the authors own work and aim to convey a sense of the potential, but also the strengths and weaknesses, of those techniques. This book is meant for graduate students in statistics, economics, policy analysis, andsocial sciences, especially, but certainly not exclusively, those interested in t he challenges of economic development in the Third World. Additionally, the book will be useful to academics and practitioners who work closely withsurvey data. This is a book that can serve as a reference work, to be taken down from the shelf and perused from time to time. Dominique Haughton is Professor of Mathematical Sciences at Bentley University and Affiliated Researcher atUniversit Toulouse I. Jonathan Haughton is Professor of Economics at Suffolk University and Senior Economist at the Beacon Hill Institute for Public Policy

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:Each chapter in Managing Complexity focuses on analyzing real-world complex systems and transferring knowledge from the complex-systems sciences to applications in business, industry and society. The interdisciplinarycontributions range from markets and production through logistics, traffic control, and critical infrastructures, up to network design, information systems, social conflicts and building consensus. They serve to raise readers'awareness concerning the often counter-intuitive behavior of c omplex systems and to help them integrate insights gained in complexity research into everyday planning, decision making, strategic optimization, and policy. Intended for abroad readership, the contributions have been kept largely non-technical and addres s a general, scientifically literate audience involved in corporate, academic, and public institutions

Title:Complexity Hints for Economic Policy [electronic resource]

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
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

Note:Sustainability of pension systems, intergeneration fiscal equity under population aging, and accounting for health care benefits for future retirees are examples of problems that cannot be solved without understanding the natureof population forecast s and their uncertainty. Similarly, the accuracy of population estimates directly affects both the distributions of formula-based government allocations to sub-national units and the apportionment of politicalrepresentation. The book develops the statisti cal foundation for addressing such issues. Areas covered include classical mathematical demography, event history methods, multi-state methods, stochastic population forecasting, samplingand census coverage, and decision theory. The methods are illustrate d with empirical applications from Europe and the U.S. For statisticians the book provides a unique introduction to demographic problems in a familiar language. Fordemographers, actuaries, epidemiologists, and professionals in related fields, the book pre sents a unified statistical outlook on both classical methods of demography and recent developments. To facilitate its classroom use, exercisesare included. Over half of the book is readily accessible to undergraduates, but more maturity may be required t o benefit fully from the complete text. Knowledge of differential and integral calculus, matrix algebra, basic probabilitytheory, and regression analysis is assumed. Juha M. Alho is Professor of Statistics, University of Joensuu, Finland, and Bruce D. Spe ncer is Professor of Statistics and Faculty Fellow at the Institute for Policy Research, NorthwesternUniversity. Both have contributed extensively to statistical demography and served in advisory roles and as statistical consultants in the field
