Note:This book collects the proceedings of the 10th Workshop on Model-Oriented Design and Analysis (mODa). A model-oriented view on the design of experiments, which is the unifying theme of all mODa meetings, assumes some knowledge ofthe form of the data- generating process and naturally leads to the so-called optimum experimental design. Its theory and practice have since become important in many scientific and technological fields, ranging from optimal designs fordynamic models in pharmacological researc h, to designs for industrial experimentation, to designs for simulation experiments in environmental risk management, to name but a few. The methodology has become even more important in recentyears because of the increased speed of scientific development s, the complexity of the systems currently under investigation and the mounting pressure on businesses, industries and scientific researchers to reduce product and processdevelopment times. This increased competition requires ever increasing efficiency in experimentation, thus necessitating new statistical designs. This book presents a rich collection of carefully selected contributions ranging fromstatistical methodology to emerging applications. It primarily aims to provide an overview of recent advance s and challenges in the field, especially in the context of new formulations, methods and state-of-the-art algorithms. Thetopics included in this volume will be of interest to all scientists and engineers and statisticians who conduct experiments

Note:Introduction to Global Optimization Exploiting Space-Filling Curves provides an overview of classical and new results pertaining to the usage of space-filling curves in global optimization. The authors look at a family ofderivative-free numerical alg orithms applying space-filling curves to reduce the dimensionality of the global optimization problem along with a number of unconventional ideas, such as adaptive strategies for estimating Lipschitzconstant, balancing global and local information to acce lerate the search. Convergence conditions of the described algorithms are studied in depth and theoretical considerations are illustrated through numerical examples. This workalso contains a code for implementing space-filling curves that can be used for constructing new global optimization algorithms. Basic ideas from this text can be applied to a number of problems including problems with multiextremaland partially defined constraints and non-redundant parallel computations can be organized. Professors, students, researchers, engineers, and other professionals in the fields of pure mathematics, nonlinear sciences studying fractals,operations research, management science, industrial and applied mathematics, computer science, engineering, economics, and t he environmental sciences will find this title useful .

Note:The book comprises an assembly of benchmarks and examples for porous media mechanics collected over the last twenty years. Analysis of thermo-hydro-mechanical-chemical (THMC) processes is essential to many applications inenvironmental engineering, su ch as geological waste deposition, geothermal energy utilisation, carbon capture and storage, water resources management, hydrology, even climate chance. In order to assess the feasibility as well as thesafety of geotechnical applications, process-based m odelling is the only tool to put numbers, i.e. to quantify future scenarios. This charges a huge responsibility concerning the reliability of computational tools. Benchmarking is anappropriate methodology to verify the quality of modelling tools based on best practices. Moreover, benchmarking and code comparison foster community efforts. The benchmark book is part of the OpenGeoSys initiative - an open sourceproject to share knowledge and experience in environmental analysis and scientific computation

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

Title:Modeling Multi-Level Systems [electronic resource]
Author(s): Octavian Iordache
Date:2011
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is devoted to modeling of multi-level complex systems, a challenging domain for engineers, researchers and entrepreneurs, confronted with the transition from learning and adaptability to evolvability and autonomy fortechnologies, devices an d problem solving methods. Chapter 1 introduces the multi-scale and multi-level systems and highlights their presence in different domains of science and technology. Methodologies as, random systems,non-Archimedean analysis, category theory and specific t echniques as model categorification and integrative closure, are presented in chapter 2. Chapters 3 and 4 describe polystochastic models, PSM, and their developments. Categoricalformulation of integrative closure offers the general PSM framework which ser ves as a flexible guideline for a large variety of multi-level modeling problems. Focusing on chemical engineering, pharmaceutical and environmental casestudies, the chapters 5 to 8 analyze mixing, turbulent dispersion and entropy production for multi-sca le systems. Taking inspiration from systems sciences, chapters 9 to 11 highlight multi-level modeling potentialities in formalconcept analysis, existential graphs and evolvable designs of experiments. Case studies refer to separation flow-sheets, pharmace utical pipeline, drug design and development, reliability management systems, security and failureanalysis. Perspectives and integrative points of view are discussed in chapter 12. Autonomous and viable systems, multi-agents, organic and autonomic computi ng, multi-level informational systems, are revealed as promising domains forfuture applications. Written for: engineers, researchers, entrepreneurs and students in chemical, pharmaceutical, environmental and systems sciences engineering, and for applied m athematicians

Note:Forest Analytics with R combines practical, down-to-earth forestry data analysis and solutions to real forest management challenges with state-of-the-art statistical and data-handling functionality. The authors adopt aproblem-driven approach, in whic h statistical and mathematical tools are introduced in the context of the forestry problem that they can help to resolve. All the tools are introduced in the context of real forestry datasets, whichprovide compelling examples of practical applications. Th e modeling challenges covered within the book include imputation and interpolation for spatial data, fitting probability density functions to tree measurement data using maximumlikelihood, fitting allometric functions using both linear and non-linear leas t-squares regression, and fitting growth models using both linear and non-linear mixed-effects modeling. The coverage also includes deploying and usingforest growth models written in compiled languages, analysis of natural resources and forestry inventory data, and forest estate planning and optimization using linear programming. The book would be ideal for a one-semester class inforest biometrics or applied statistics for natural resources management. The text assumes no programming background, some intr oductory statistics, and very basic applied mathematics. Andrew Robinson has been associate professor offorest mensuration and forest biometrics at the University of Idaho, and is currently senior lecturer in applied statistics at the University of Melbou rne. He received his PhD in forestry from the University of Minnesota. Robinson isauthor of the popular and freely-available icebreakeR document.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:World energy consumption has grown dramatically over the past few decades. This growth in energy demand will be driven by large increases in both economic growth and world population coupled with rising living standards inrapidly growing countries. T he last years, we routinely hear about a renaissance of nuclear energy. The recognition that nuclear power is vital to global energy security in the 21st century has been growing for some time. Themore we look to the future, the more we can expect countri es to be considering the potential benefits that expanding nuclear power has to offer for the global environment and for economic growth, IAEA Director General MohamedElBaradei said in advance of a gathering of 500 nuclear power experts assembled in Mosco w for the International Conference on Fifty Years of Nuclear Power - the Next Fifty Years. But such a renaissance is not a single-valued andsure thing. Legitimate four unresolved questions remain about high relative costs perceived adverse safety, environ mental, and health effects potential security risks stemming from proliferation and unresolved challenges inlong-term management of nuclear wastes. Failure to answer these questions adequately could imperil the nuclear revival so many have proclaimed is n ight. This proceeding examines the status and future of nuclear power because of abelief that this technology is an important option for the regional and the world countries to meet the future energy needs without emitting carbon dioxide and other atmosph eric pollutants. The objectives, addressed to government,industry, and academic leaders, discusses the interrelated technical, economic, environmental and political challenges facing a significant increase in the global nuclear power utilization over the next half century and what might bedone to overcome those challenges

Note:Much of biology can be understood in terms of demography. It is the demographic processes of birth and death which govern rates of population growth and the rates at which gene frequencies change. The analysis of demographicprocesses in free-living o rganisms is, however, far from simple. Scientists from diverse fields in biology and statistics have united to address the challenges by developing mark-recapture methods and other approaches. Progress hasbeen rapid, and this volume represents a snapshot of the emerging field. It has eleven sections in total, covering the most important biological and statistical frontiers, new software developments, and an open forum. It covers thelatest approaches in modeling population dynamics, evolutionary ecology an d wildlife biology. It addresses issues in the estimation of abundance and movement, and it covers new statistical approaches in the combination of information,Bayesian statistics, Robust Designs and the modeling of state-uncertainty

Note:The paradigms of dynamic games play an important role in the development of multi-agent models in engineering, economics, and management science. The applicability of their concepts stems from the ability to encompass situationswith uncertainty, inco mplete information, fluctuating coalition structure, and coupled constraints imposed on the strategies of all the players. This bookan outgrowth of the 10th International Symposium on Dynamic Gamespresentscurrent developments of the theory of dynamic game s and its applications to various domains, in particular energy-environment economics and management sciences. The volume uses dynamic game models of various sorts to approach and solveseveral problems pertaining to pursuit-evasion, marketing, finance, cl imate and environmental economics, resource exploitation, as well as auditing and tax evasions. In addition, it includes some chapters on cooperative games, whichare increasingly drawing dynamic approaches to their classical solutions. The book is themati cally organized into six parts: * zero-sum game theory * pursuit-evasion games * games of coalitions * new interpretations of theinterdependence between different members of a social group * original applications to energy-environment economics * manageme nt science applications This work will serve as a state-of-the art account of recent advances in dynamic gametheory and its applications for researchers, practitioners, and graduate students in applied mathematics, engineering, economics, as well as envir onmental and management sciences

Note:Operations Research emerged as a quantitative approach to problem-solving in World War II. Its founders, who were physicists, mathematicians, and engineers, quickly found peace-time uses for this new field. Moreover, we can saythat Operations Researc h (OR) was born in the same incubator as computer science, and through the years, it has spawned many new disciplines, including systems engineering, health care management, and transportation science.Fundamentally, Operations Research crosses discipline domains to seek solutions on a range of problems and benefits diverse disciplines from finance to bioengineering. Many disciplines routinely use OR methods. Many scientificresearchers, engineers, and others will find the methodological presentations in th is book useful and helpful in their problem-solving efforts. ORs strengths are modeling, analysis, and algorithm design. It provides a quantitativefoundation for a broad spectrum of problems, from economics to medicine, from environmental control to sport s, from e-commerce to computational geometry. The primary purpose of TUTORIALS ON EMERGING METHODOLOGIES AND APPLICATIONS INOPERATIONS RESEARCH is to provide a reference for practitioners and academics who seek a clear, concise presentation of developing methodologies, hence providing themselves with the capability to apply these methods to new problems.The field of Operations Research is always changing. Its changes are driven by the technology it uses and that it extends, and the applications that it af fects. Relevant changes in the field have a permanent effect on the conduct of ORand are vital to anyone who wants to be current in the field. Each chapter presents a new developing methodology in Operations Research. Each chapter examines each topic with clarity and depth, and organizes the examination around thefollowing questions: (1) What the developing methodology basically is about? (2) Why is it important? and (3) Where can I learn more?
