Title: | Analysis of Phylogenetics and Evolution with R [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Emmanuel Paradis |
Date: | 2012 |
Publisher: | New York, NY : Springer New York |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | Springer e-book platform |
Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | The increasing availability of molecular and genetic databases coupled with the growing power of computers gives biologists opportunities to address new issues, such as the patterns of molecular evolution, and re-assess old ones,such as the role of a daptation in species diversification. In the second edition, the book continues to integrate a wide variety of data analysis methods into a single and flexible interface: the R language. This open source languageis available for a wide range of computer s ystems and has been adopted as a computational environment by many authors of statistical software. Adopting R as a main tool for phylogenetic analyses will ease the workflow in biologists'data analyses, ensure greater scientific repeatability, and enhanc e the exchange of ideas and methodological developments. The second edition is completely updated, covering the full gamut of R packages for this area that have beenintroduced to the market since its previous publication five years ago. There is also a ne w chapter on the simulation of evolutionary data. Graduate students and researchers in evolutionary biology can use this book as areference for data analyses, whereas researchers in bioinformatics interested in evolutionary analyses will learn how to impl ement these methods in R. The book starts with a presentation of different R packages and gives a shortintroduction to R for phylogeneticists unfamiliar with this language. The basic phylogenetic topics are covered: manipulation of phylogenetic data, phyl ogeny estimation, tree drawing, phylogenetic comparative methods, and estimation ofancestral characters. The chapter on tree drawing uses R's powerful graphical environment. A section deals with the analysis of diversification with phylogenies, one of the author's favorite research topics. The last chapter is devotedto the development of phylogenetic methods with R and interfaces with other languages (C and C++). Some exercises conclude these chap |

Note: | Converging evidence from disciplines including sociobiology, evolutionary psychology and human biology forces us to adopt a new idea of what it means to be a human. As cherished concepts such as free will, nave realism, humansas creation's crowning g lory fall and our moral roots in ape group dynamics become clearer, we have to take leave of many concepts that have been central to defining our humanness. What emerges is a new human, the homo novus, a humanbeing without illusions. Leading authors from many different fields explore these issues by addressing these illusions and providing evidence for the need to switch to this new idea of man, in spite of understandable reluctance to letgo of our most beloved illusions |

Title: | Quantitative Sociodynamics [electronic resource] : Stochastic Methods and Models of Social Interaction Processes |
Author(s): |
Dirk Helbing |

Edition: | 2 |
Publisher: | Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | Springer e-book platform |
Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | This new edition of Quantitative Sociodynamics presents a general strategy for interdisciplinary model building and its application to a quantitative description of behavioral changes based on social interaction processes.Originally, the crucial meth ods for the modeling of complex systems (stochastic methods and nonlinear dynamics) were developed in physics and mathematics, but they have very often proven their explanatory power in chemistry, biology,economics and the social sciences as well. Quantit ative Sociodynamics provides a unified and comprehensive overview of the different stochastic methods, their interrelations and properties. In addition, it introduces important conceptsfrom nonlinear dynamics (e.g. synergetics, chaos theory). The applicab ility of these fascinating concepts to social phenomena is carefully discussed. By incorporating decision-theoretical approaches, a fundamental dynamic model isobtained, which opens new perspectives in the social sciences. It includes many established mod els as special cases, e.g. the logistic equation, the gravity model, some diffusion models, evolutionary game theoryand social fieldtheory. Moreover, it implies numerous new results and is relevant for various application areas, such as opinion formation, migration, the self-organizationof behavioral conventions, and the behavior of customers andvoters.Theoretical results are complemented and illustrated by numerous computer simulations. Quantitative Sociodynamics is relevant both for social scientists an d natural scientists who are interested in the application ofstochastic and synergetics concepts to interdisciplinary topics. |

Note: | The Poisson-Dirichlet distribution is an infinite dimensional probability distribution. It was introduced by Kingman over thirty years ago, and has found applications in a broad range of areas including Bayesian statistics,combinatorics, differential geometry, economics, number theory, physics, and population genetics. This monograph provides a comprehensive study of this distribution and some related topics, with particular emphasis on recent progressesin evolutionary dynamics and asymptotic behavio rs. One central scheme is the unification of the Poisson-Dirichlet distribution, the urn structure, the coalescent, the evolutionary dynamics through the grand particle system of Donnellyand Kurtz. It is largely self-contained. The methods and techniques used in it appeal to researchers in a wide variety of subjects |

Note: | The study of structures and structure generating processes is a common concern of all scientific and technical disciplines. The present volume presents an interdisciplinary investigation of the different methods of analysis andmodelling which, while differing considerably in detail, usually have evolutionary adaption or development schemes at their core. The book naturally falls into three parts - a first part summarizing the transdisciplinary fundamentals,a second part discussing in detail case stud ies from various fields (production engineering, medicine, management, molecular biology, energy engineering, civil engineering, logistics, sociology, physics) and a shorter outlook on thetransdisciplinary perspective |

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 |

Mastering complexity implies sharing different tools requiring much higher level of communication between differentmathematical and scientific schools, for solving clas ses of problems of the same nature. Today more than ever, one of the most important challenges derives from the need to bridge parts of a system evolving at different time and spacescales, especially with respect to computational affordability. As a resul t the content has a rather general character the main role is played by stochastic processes, positive semigroups, asymptotic analysis, kinetic theory,continuum theory and game theory |

Note: | Organic Computing is a research field emerging around the conviction that problems of organization in complex systems in computer science, telecommunications, neurobiology, molecular biology, ethology, and possibly even sociologycan be tackled scient ifically in a unified way. From the computer science point of view, the apparent ease in which living systems solve computationally difficult problems makes it inevitable to adopt strategies observed in nature forcreating information processing machinery. In this book, the major ideas behind Organic Computing are delineated, together with a sparse sample of computational projects undertaken in this new field. Biological metaphors includeevolution, neural networks, gene-regulatory networks, networks of bra in modules, hormone system, insect swarms, and ant colonies. Applications are as diverse as system design, optimization, artificial growth, task allocation,clustering, routing, face recognition, and sign language understanding |

Note: | Evolution is a critical challenge for many areas of science, technology and development of society. The book reviews general evolutionary facts such as origin of life and evolution of the genome and clues to evolution throughsimple systems. Emerging areas of science such as systems biology and bio-complexity are founded on the idea that phenomena need to be understood in the context of highly interactive processes operating at different levels andon different scales. This is where physics meets compl exity in nature, and where we must begin to learn about complexity if we are to understand it. Similarly, there is an increasingly urgent need to understand and predict theevolutionary behavior of highly interacting man-made systems, in areas such as comm unications and transport, which permeate the modern world. The same applies to the evolution of human networks such as social, political and financialsystems, where technology has tended to vastly increase both the complexity and speed of interaction, whi ch is sometimes effectively instantaneous. The book contains reviews on such diverse areas as evolution experiments withmicroorganisms, the origin and evolution of viruses, evolutionary dynamics of genes and environment in cancer development, aging as an evolution-facilitating program, evolution of vision and evolution of financial markets |

Note: | Quantifying shape and size variation is essential in evolutionary biology and in many other disciplines. Since the morphometric revolution of the 90s, an increasing number of publications in applied and theoreticalmorphometrics emerged in the new dis cipline of statistical shape analysis. The R language and environment offers a single platform to perform a multitude of analyses from the acquisition of data to the production of static andinteractive graphs. This offers an ideal environment to analyze s hape variation and shape change. This open-source language is accessible for novices and for experienced users. Adopting R gives the user and developer several advantagesfor performing morphometrics: evolvability, adaptability, interactivity, a single and comprehensive platform, possibility of interfacing with other languages and software, custom analyses, and graphs. The book explains how to use R formorphometrics and provides a series of examples of codes and displays covering approaches ranging from tr aditional morphometrics to modern statistical shape analysis such as the analysis of landmark data, Thin Plate Splines, andFourier analysis of outlines. The book fills two gaps: The gap between theoreticians and students by providing worked examples from the acquisition of data to analyses and hypothesis testing. The gap between user and developers byproviding and explaining codes for performing all the steps necessary for morphometrics rather than providing a manual for a given software or package. Stude nts and scientists interested in shape analysis can use the book as areference for performing applied morphometrics, while prospective researchers will learn how to implement algorithms or interfacing R for new methods. In addition, adopting the R philoso phy will enhance exchanges within and outsidethe morphometrics community.

Note: | This book offers a detailed asymptotic analysis of some important classes of singularly perturbed boundary value problems which are mathematical models for various phenomena in biology, chemistry, and engineering. The authors areparticularly interest ed in nonlinear problems, which have hardly been examined so far in the literature dedicated to singular perturbations. This book proposes to fill in this gap, since most applications are described by nonlinearmodels. Their asymptotic analysis is very int eresting, but requires special methods and tools. The treatment presented in this volume combines some of the most successful results from different parts of mathematics, includingfunctional analysis, singular perturbation theory, partial differential equ ations, and evolution equations. Thus a complete justification for the replacement of various perturbed models with corresponding reduced models, which aresimpler but in general have a different character, is offered to the reader Specific applications ar e addressed, such as propagation of electromagnetic or mechanical waves, fluid flows, or diffusion processes. However, the methodspresented are also applicable to other mathematical models. The book covers mostly original results by the authors. It is des igned for researchers and graduate students |

Note: | This book reviews how mathematics can be used in combination with biological data in order to improve understanding of how the immune system works. This is illustrated largely in the context of viral infections. Mathematicalmodels allow scientists to capture complex biological interactions in a clear mathematical language and to follow them to their precise logical conclusions. This can give rise to counter-intuitive insights which would not be attainedby experiments alone, and can be used for the de sign of further experiments in order to address the mathematical results. This book provides both an introduction to the field of mathematical immunology, and an overview of many topicswhich are the subject of current research, covering a broad variety of immunological topics. It starts with basic principles of immunology and covers the dynamical interactions between the immune system and specific viral infections,including important human pathogens such as HIV. General biological and mathematical backgro und material to both virus infection and immune system dynamics is provided, and each chapter begins with a simple introduction to thebiological questions examined. This book is intended for an interdisciplinary audience. It explains the concept of mathem atical modeling in immunology and shows how modeling has been used to address specific questions. It is intendedboth for the mathematical biologists who are interested in immunology, and for the biological readership that is interested in the use of mathe matical models in immunology.

Note: | The increasing availability of molecular and genetic databases coupled with the growing power of computers gives biologists opportunities to address new issues, such as the patterns of molecular evolution, and re-assess old ones,such as the role of a daptation in species diversification. This book integrates a wide variety of data analysis methods into a single and flexible interface: the R language. This open source language is available for a wide range ofcomputer systems and has been adopted as a c omputational environment by many authors of statistical software. Adopting R as a main tool for phylogenetic analyses will ease the workflow in biologists' data analyses, ensure greaterscientific repeatability, and enhance the exchange of ideas and method ological developments. Graduate students and researchers in evolutionary biology can use this book as a reference for data analyses, whereas researchers inbioinformatics interested in evolutionary analyses will learn how to implement these methods in R. T he book starts with a presentation of different R packages and gives a short introduction to R for phylogeneticists unfamiliar withthis language. The basic phylogenetic topics are covered: manipulation of phylogenetic data, phylogeny estimation, tree draw ing, phylogenetic comparative methods, and estimation of ancestral characters. The chapter on tree drawing usesR's powerful graphical environment. A section deals with the analysis of diversification with phylogenies, one of the author's favorite research topics. The last chapter is devoted to the development of phylogenetic methods with R andinterfaces with other languages (C and C++). Some exercises conclude these chapters. Emmanuel Paradis is an evolutionary biologist at the Centre National de la Reche rche Scientifique (CNRS) and the Institut de Recherche pour leDveloppement (IRD) in Montpellier. He received his Doctorate Diploma in population biology and ecology in 1993 at the University of Montpe |

Note: | Power Laws, Scale-free Networks and Genome Biology deals with crucial aspects of the theoretical foundations of systems biology, namely power law distributions and scale-free networks which have emerged as the hallmarks ofbiological organization in t he post-genomic era. The chapters in the book not only describe the interesting mathematical properties of biological networks but moves beyond phenomenology, toward models of evolution capable of explainingthe emergence of these features. The collection of chapters, contributed by both physicists and biologists, strives to address the problems in this field in a rigorous but not excessively mathematical manner and to represent differentviewpoints, which is crucial in this emerging discipline. Each chapte r includes, in addition to technical descriptions of properties of biological networks and evolutionary models, a more general and accessible introduction to therespective problems. Most chapters emphasize the potential of theoretical systems biology for discovery of new biological phenomena |

Note: | In the field of molecular evolution, inferences about past evolutionary events are made using molecular data from currently living species. With the availability of genomic data from multiple related species, molecular evolutionhas become one of the most active and fastest growing fields of study in genomics and bioinformatics. Most studies in molecular evolution rely heavily on statistical procedures based on stochastic process modelling and advancedcomputational methods including high-dimensional n umerical optimization and Markov Chain Monte Carlo. This book provides an overview of the statistical theory and methods used in studies of molecular evolution. It includes anintroductory section suitable for readers that are new to the field, a section d iscussing practical methods for data analysis, and more specialized sections discussing specific models and addressing statistical issues relating toestimation and model choice. The chapters are written by the leaders in the field and they will take the r eader from basic introductory material to the state-of the-art statistical methods. This book is suitable for statisticiansseeking to learn more about applications in molecular evolution and molecular evolutionary biologists with an interest in learning m ore about the theory behind the statistical methods applied in the field. The chapters of the bookassume no advanced mathematical skills beyond basic calculus, although familiarity with basic probability theory will help the reader. Most relevant statisti cal concepts are introduced in the book in the context of their application inmolecular evolution, and the book should be accessible for most biology graduate students with an interest in quantitative methods and theory. Rasmus Nielsen received his Ph.D. form the University of California at Berkeley in 1998 andafter a postdoc at Harvard University, he assumed a faculty position in Statistical Genomics at Cornell University. He is currently an Ole Rmer |

Note: | Advances in computers and biotechnology have had a profound impact on biomedical research, and as a result complex data sets can now be generated to address extremely complex biological questions. Correspondingly, advances in thestatistical methods n ecessary to analyze such data are following closely behind the advances in data generation methods. The statistical methods required by bioinformatics present many new and difficult problems for the researchcommunity. This book provides an introduction to some of these new methods. The main biological topics treated include sequence analysis, BLAST, microarray analysis, gene finding, and the analysis of evolutionary processes. The mainstatistical techniques covered include hypothesis testing and estimatio n, Poisson processes, Markov models and Hidden Markov models, and multiple testing methods. The second edition features new chapters on microarray analysis and onstatistical inference, including a discussion of ANOVA, and discussions of the statistical th eory of motifs and methods based on the hypergeometric distribution. Much material has been clarified and reorganized. The book is written soas to appeal to biologists and computer scientists who wish to know more about the statistical methods of the fiel d, as well as to trained statisticians who wish to become involved with bioinformatics. The earlier chapters introducethe concepts of probability and statistics at an elementary level, but with an emphasis on material relevant to later chapters and often not covered in standard introductory texts. Later chapters should be immediately accessible to thetrained statistician. Sufficient mathematical background consists of introductory courses in calculus and linear algebra. The basic biological concepts that are used are explained, or can be understood from the context, and standardmathematical concepts are summarized in an Appendix. Problems are provided at the end of each chapter allowing the reader to de |

Title: | Shortest Connectivity [electronic resource] : An Introduction with Applications in Phylogeny |

Note: | The problem of Shortest Connectivity has a long and convoluted history: given a finite set of points in a metric space, search for a network that connects these points with the shortest possible length. This shortest networkmust be a tree and may con tain vertices different from the points which are to be connected. Over the years more and more real-life problems are given, which use this problem or one of its relatives as an application, as a subproblemor a model. This volume is an introduction to th e theory of Shortest Connectivity, as the core of the so-called Geometric Network Design Problems, where the general problem can be stated as follows: given a configuration ofvertices and/or edges, find a network which contains these objects, satisfies so me predetermined requirements, and which minimizes a given objective function that depends on several distance measures. A new application of shortestconnectivity is also discussed, namely to create trees which reflect the evolutionary history of living e ntities. The aim in this graduate level text is to outline the key mathematical concepts that underpin these importantquestions in applied mathematics. These concepts involve discrete mathematics (particularly graph theory), optimization, computer science , and several ideas in biology |
