Title: | Modeling and Simulation [electronic resource] : An Application-Oriented Introduction |
Author(s): |
Hans-Joachim Bungartz Stefan Zimmer Martin Buchholz Dirk Pflger |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This book provides an introduction to mathematical and computer-oriented modeling and to simulation as a universal methodology. It therefore addresses various model classes and their derivations. And it demonstrates the diversityof approaches that ca n be taken: be it discrete or continuous, deterministic or stochastic. A common underlying theme throughout the book are the means in which one obtains practical simulation results from these different abstractmodels. Subsequent to a brief review of the mathematical tools that are required, the concept of the simulation pipeline, from model derivation to the simulation, is applied to 14 example scenarios from diverse fields such asGame theory - deciding - planning, Traffic on highways and data highways, Dynamical systems and Physics in the computer. Whether it is game theory or mathematical finance, traffic or control theory, populationdynamics or chaos, or molecular dynamics, continuum mechanics or computer graphics - the reader gains insight into the world of simulation in a descriptive yet systematic way |

Title: | Mathematical Models and Methods for Planet Earth [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Alessandra Celletti Ugo Locatelli Tommaso Ruggeri Elisabetta Strickland |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | In 2013 several scientific activities have been devoted to mathematical researches for the study of planet Earth. The current volume presents a selection of the highly topical issues presented at the workshop MathematicalModels and Methods for Planet Earth, held in Roma (Italy), in May 2013. The fields of interest span from impacts of dangerous asteroids to the safeguard from space debris, from climatic changes to monitoring geological events, fromthe study of tumor growth to sociological problems. I n all these fields the mathematical studies play a relevant role as a tool for the analysis of specific topics and as an ingredient of multidisciplinary problems. To investigatethese problems we will see many different mathematical tools at work: just to mention some, stochastic processes, PDE, normal forms, chaos theory |

Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This textserves as a thorough introduction to the rapidly developing field of positional games. This area constitutes an important branch of combinatorics, whose aim it is to systematically develop an extensive mathematicalbasis for a variety of two- player perfect information games. These range from such popular games as Tic-Tac-Toe and Hex to purely abstract games played on graphs and hypergraphs. The subject of positional games is strongly related toseveral other branches of combinatorics such as R amsey theory, extremal graph and set theory, and the probabilistic method. These notes cover a variety of topics in positional games, including both classical results and recentimportant developments. They are presented in an accessible way and are accomp anied by exercises of varying difficulty, helping the reader to better understand the theory. The text will benefit both researchers and graduate students incombinatorics and adjacent fields |

Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | CoveringWalks in Graphs is aimed at researchers and graduate students in the graph theory community and provides a comprehensive treatment on measures of two well studied graphical properties, namely Hamiltonicity andtraversability in graphs. This te xt looks into the famous Knigsberg Bridge Problem, the Chinese Postman Problem, the Icosian Game and the Traveling Salesman Problem as well as well-known mathematicians who were involved in theseproblems. The concepts of different spanning walks with exam ples and present classical results on Hamiltonian numbers and upper Hamiltonian numbers of graphs are described in some cases, the authorsprovide proofs of these results toillustrate the beauty and complexity of this area of research. Two new concepts of traceable numbers of graphs and traceable numbers of vertices of a graph which were inspired by and closely related to Hamiltonian numbers areintroduced. Results are illustrated on these two concepts and the relationship between traceable concepts and Ham iltonian concepts are examined. Describes several variations of traceable numbers, which provide new frame works forseveral well-known Hamiltonian concepts and produce interesting new results |

Note: | This is the first comprehensive monograph on the mathematical theory of the solitaire game The Tower of Hanoi which was invented in the 19th century by the French number theorist douard Lucas. The book comprises a surveyof the historical development from the games predecessors up to recent research in mathematics and applications in computer science and psychology. Apart from long-standing myths it contains a thorough, largely self-containedpresentation of the essential mathematical facts with comple te proofs, including also unpublished material. The main objects of research today are the so-called Hanoi graphs and the related Sierpiski graphs. Acknowledging the greatpopularity of the topic in computer science, algorithms and their correctness proofs form an essential part of the book. In view of the most important practical applications of the Tower of Hanoi and its variants, namely in physics,network theory, and cognitive (neuro)psychology, other related structures and puzzles like, e.g., the Tower of London, are addressed. Numerous captivating integer sequences arise along the way, but also many open questions imposethemselves. Central among these is the famed Frame-Stewart conjecture. Despite many attempts to decide it and large-scale numerical e xperiments supporting its truth, it remains unsettled after more than 70 years and thus demonstratesthe timeliness of the topic. Enriched with elaborate illustrations, connections to other puzzles and challenges for the reader in the form of (solved) exer cises as well as problems for further exploration, this book is enjoyablereading for students, educators, game enthusiasts and researchers alike |

Note: | Mean field games and Mean field type control introduce new problems in Control Theory. The terminology games may be confusing. In fact they are control problems, in the sense that one is interested in a single decisionmaker, whom we can call the repr esentative agent. However, these problems are not standard, since both the evolution of the state and the objective functional is influenced but terms which are not directly related to the state or thecontrol of the decision maker. They are however, indir ectly related to him, in the sense that they model a very large community of agents similar to the representative agent. All the agents behave similarly and impact therepresentative agent. However, because of the large number an aggregation effect takes p lace. The interesting consequence is that the impact of the community can be modeled by a mean field term, but when this is done, the problem isreduced to a control problem. |

Note: | This text is meant to deepen its readers understanding of vector calculus, differential geometry and related subjects in applied mathematics. Designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, this text invites itsaudience to take a fresh loo k at previously learned material through the prism of tensor calculus. Once the framework is mastered, the student is introduced to new material which includes differential geometry on manifolds, shapeoptimization, boundary perturbation, and dynamic fluid film equations. Tensor calculus is a powerful tool that combines the geometric and analytical perspectives and enables us to take full advantage of the computational utility ofcoordinate systems. The tensor approach can be of benefit to members of all te chnical sciences including mathematics and all engineering disciplines. If calculus and linear algebra are central to the readers scientific endeavors,tensor calculus is indispensable. The language of tensors, originally championed by Einstein, is as fund amental as the languages of calculus and linear algebra and is one that every technical scientist ought to speak. The tensortechnique, invented at the turn of the 20th century, is now considered classical. Yet, as the author shows, it remains remarkably v ital and relevant. The authors skilled lecturing capabilities are evident by the inclusion ofinsightful examples and a plethora of exercises. A great deal of material is devoted to the geometric fundamentals, the mechanics of change of variables, the prop er use of the tensor notation, and the discussion of the interplaybetween algebra and geometry. The early chapters have many words and few equations. The definition of a tensor comes only in Chapter 6 when the reader is ready for it. While this text main tains a reasonable level of rigor, it takesgreat care to avoid formalizing the subject. The last part of the textbook is devoted to the calculus of moving surfaces. It is the first textboo |

Note: | Dynamics of Information Systems: Algorithmic Approaches presents recent developments and results found by participants of the Fourth International Conference on the Dynamics of Information Systems, which took place at theUniversity of Florida, Gaines ville FL, USA on February 2022, 2012. The purpose of this conference was to bring together scientists and engineers from industry, government, and universities to exchange knowledge and results in abroad range of topics relevant to the theory and practice of the dynamics of information systems. Dynamics of Information plays an increasingly critical role in our society. The influence of information on social, biological, genetic,and military systems must be better understood to achieve large advances in th e capability and understanding of these systems. Applications are widespread and include: detection of terrorist networks, design of highly efficientbusinesses, computer networks, quantum entanglement, genome modeling, multi-robotic systems, and industria l and manufacturing safety. The book contains state-of-the-art work on theory and practice relevant to the dynamics ofinformation systems. It covers algorithmic approaches to numerical computations with infinite and infinitesimal numbers presents importan t problems arising in service-oriented systems, such as dynamic composition and analysis ofmodern service-oriented information systems and estimation of customer service times on a rail network from GPS data addresses the complexity of the problems arisin g in stochastic and distributed systems and discusses modulatingcommunication for improving multi-agent learning convergence. Network issuesin particular minimum-risk maximum-clique problems, vulnerability of sensor networks, influence diffusion, communit y detection, and link prediction insocial network analysis, as well as a comparative analysis of algorithms for transmission network expansion planningare described in later chapters |

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 |

Note: | Conflicts in the form of wars, or competition among countries and industrial institutions are plenty in human history. The introduction of game theory in the middle of the twentieth century shed insights and enabled researchers toanalyze this subject with mathematical rigor. From the ground-breaking work of VonNeumann and Morgenston, modern game theory evolved enormously. In the last few decades, Dynamic game theory framework has been deepened and generalizedfrom the pioneering work on differential g ames by R. Isaacs, L.S. Pontryagin and his school, and on stochastic games by Shapley. This book will expose the reader to some of the fundamental methodology in non-cooperative game theory,and highlight some numerical methods, along with some relevant ap plications. Since the early development days, differential game theory has had a significant impact in such diverse disciplines as applied mathematics, economics, systemstheory, engineering, operations, research, biology, ecology, environmental sciences, among others. Modern game theory now relies on wide ranging mathematical and computational methods, and relevant applications that are rich andchallenging. Game theory has been widely recognized as an important tool in many fields. Importance of game theo ry to economics is illustrated by the fact that numerous game theorists, such as John Forbes Nash, Jr., Robert J. Aumannand Thomas C. Schelling, have won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics Sciences. Simply put, game-theory has the potential to reshape the analysis of human interaction |

Note: | Models of science dynamics aim to capture the structure and evolution of science. They are developed in an emerging research area in which scholars, scientific institutions and scientific communications become themselves basicobjects of research. In order to understand phenomena as diverse as the structure of evolving co-authorship networks or citation diffusion patterns, different models have been developed. They include conceptual models based onhistorical and ethnographic observations, mathematica l descriptions of measurable phenomena, and computational algorithms. Despite its evident importance, the mathematical modeling of science still lacks a unifying framework and acomprehensive research agenda. This book aims to fill this gap, reviewing and describing major threads in the mathematical modeling of science dynamics for a wider academic and professional audience. The model classes presented herecover stochastic and statistical models, game-theoretic approaches, agent-based simulations, populati on-dynamics models, and complex network models. The book starts with a foundational chapter that defines and operationalizesterminology used in the study of science, and a review chapter that discusses the history of mathematical approaches to modeling sc ience from an algorithmic-historiography perspective. It concludes with a survey of future challengesfor science modeling and discusses their relevance for science policy and science policy studies |

Note: | In a number of famous works, M. Kac showed that various methods of probability theory can be fruitfully applied to important problems of analysis. The interconnection between probability and analysis also plays a central role inthe present book. Howe ver, our approach is mainly based on the application of analysis methods (the method of operator identities, integral equations theory, dual systems, integrable equations) to probability theory (Levy processes, M.Kac's problems, the principle of impercept ibility of the boundary, signal theory). The essential part of the book is dedicated to problems of statistical physics (classical and quantum cases). We consider the corresponding statisticalproblems (Gibbs-type formulas, non-extensive statistical mechan ics, Boltzmann equation) from the game point of view (the game between energy and entropy). One chapter is dedicated to the construction of special examples instead ofexistence theorems (D. Larson's theorem, Ringrose's hypothesis, the Kadison-Singer and G ohberg-Krein questions). We also investigate the Bezoutiant operator. In this context, we do not make the assumption that the Bezoutiant operatoris normally solvable, allowing us to investigate the special classes of the entire functions |

Note: | This book contains an expanded version of three series of lectures delivered by the authors at the CRM in July 2009. The theory of optimization, understood in a broad sense, is the basis of modern applied mathematics, covering alarge spectrum of topi cs from theoretical considerations (structure, stability) to applied operational research and engineering applications. The compiled material of this book puts on display this versatility, by exhibiting the threeparallel and complementary components of op timization: theory, algorithms, and practical problems. The first part is a self-contained course on the general moment problem and its relations with semidefinite programming. The second partis dedicated to the problem of determination of Nash equilibria from an algorithmic viewpoint. The last part presents congestion models for traffic networks and develops modern optimization techniques for finding traffic equilibriabased on stochastic optimization and game theory |

Note: | The idea of modeling the behavior of phenomena at multiple scales has become a useful tool in both pure and applied mathematics. Fractal-based techniques lie at the heart of this area, as fractals are inherently multiscaleobjects they very often desc ribe nonlinear phenomena better than traditional mathematical models. In many cases they have been used for solving inverse problems arising in models described by systems of differential equations anddynamical systems. Fractal-Based Methods in Analysis draws together, for the first time in book form, methods and results from almost twenty years of research in this topic, including new viewpoints and results in many of thechapters. For each topic the theoretical framework is carefully explained using exa mples and applications. The second chapter on basic iterated function systems theory is designed to be used as the basis for a course and includesmany exercises. This chapter, along with the three background appendices on topological and metric spaces, m easure theory, and basic results from set-valued analysis, make the book suitable for self-study or as a source book for agraduate course. The other chapters illustrate many extensions and applications of fractal-based methods to different areas. This boo k is intended for graduate students and researchers in applied mathematics, engineering and socialsciences. Herb Kunze is a Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Guelph. Davide La Torre is an Associate Professor in the Department of Economics, Business and Statistics, University of Milan.Franklin Mendivil is a Professor in the Department ofMathematics and Statistics, Acadia University.Edward R.

Note: | Complex Networks is a newly emerging field with applications in a variety of domains, such as communication networks, engineering networks, social networks, and biological networks. There has been an explosive growth of researchon complex real-world networks, a theme that is becoming pervasive in many disciplines ranging from mathematics and computer science to the social and biological sciences. Optimization of complex networks with real-world applicationsrequires a deep understanding of the interpl ay between the dynamics of the physical network and the information dynamics within the network. The Handbook of Optimization in Complex Networks: Theory and Applications provides the basictheory of these networks with several new mathematical approaches and optimization techniques to design and analyze dynamic complex networks. The volume features a wide range of applications and optimization problems derived fromresearch areas such as computer science, operations research, cellular and molecular chemis try, brain physiology, epidemiology, and ecology. This volume, as well as its companion (The Handbook of Optimization in Complex Networks:Communication and Social Networks ISBN: 978-1-4614-0856-7) is an excellent resource for graduate students, researcher s, and practitioners who wish to learn about the most up to date theory and applications on optimization of complexreal-world networks. |

Note: | Optical networks epitomize complex communication systems, and they comprise the Internets infrastructural backbone. The first of its kind, this book develops the mathematical framework needed from a control perspective totackle various game-theoretic al problems in optical networks. In doing so, it aims to help design control algorithms that optimally allocate the resources of these networks. The books main focus is a control-theoretic analysis ofdynamic systems arising from game formulations with non -separable player utilities and with coupled as well as propagated (modified) constraints. Compared with the conventional static optimization approach, this provides a morerealistic model of how optical networks operate. Its methods and techniques could b e used to improve networks functionality and adaptivity, potentially enhancing thespeed and reliability of communications throughout the world.With its fresh problem-solving approach, Game Theory for Control of Optical Networks is a unique resource for re searchers, practitioners, and graduate students in applied mathematics and systems/control engineering, as well as those inelectrical and computer engineering |

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.

Note: | Due to inherent limitations in human sensing organs, most data collected for various purposes contain uncertainties. Even at the rare occasions when accurate data are available, the truthful predictions derived on the data tend tocreate chaotic conse quences. So, to effectively process and make sense out of available data, we need methods to deal with uncertainty inherently existing inside the data. The intent of this monograph is to explore the fundamentaltheory, methods, and techniques of practical application of grey systems theory, initiated by Professor Deng Julong in 1982. This volume presents most of the recent advances of the theory accomplished by scholars from around the world.From studying this book, the reader will not only acquire an over all knowledge of this new theory but also be able to follow the most current research activities. All examples presented are based on practical applications of the theorywhen urgent real-life problems had to be addressed. Last but not the least, this book concludes with three appendices. The first one compares grey systems theory and interval analysis while revealing the fact that interval analysis isa part of grey mathematics. The second appendix presents an array of different approaches of studying unce rtainties. And, the last appendix shows how uncertainties appear using general systems approach |

Note: | Classic biostatistics, a branch of statistical science, has as its main focus the applications of statistics in public health, the life sciences, and the pharmaceutical industry. Modern biostatistics, beyond just a simpleapplication of statistics, is a confluence of statistics and knowledge of multiple intertwined fields. The application demands, the advancements in computer technology, and the rapid growth of life science data (e.g., genomics data)have promoted the formation of modern biostatistics. There are at least three characteristics of modern biostatistics: (1) in-depth engagement in the application fields that require penetration of knowledge across several fields, (2)high-level complexity of data because they are longitudinal, incomplete, o r latent because they are heterogeneous due to a mixture of data or experiment types, because of high-dimensionality, which may make meaningful reductionimpossible, or because of extremely small or large size and (3) dynamics, the speed of development in methodology and analyses, has to match the fast growth of data with a constantly changing face. This book is written forresearchers, biostatisticians/statisticians, and scientists who are interested in quantitative analyses. The goal is to introduce moder n methods in biostatistics and help researchers and students quickly grasp key concepts and methods.Many methods can solve the same problem and many problems can be solved by the same method, which becomes apparent when those topics are discussed inthis s ingle volume |

Note: | This monograph provides a unified and comprehensive treatment of an order-theoretic fixed point theory in partially ordered sets and its various useful interactions with topological structures. It begins with a discussion of somesimple examples of th e order-theoretic fixed point results along with simple applications from each of the diverse fields. The fixed point theory is then developed and preliminary results on multi-valued variational inequalitiesregarding the topological and order-theoretical structure of solution sets are covered. This is followed by more advanced material which demonstrates the power of the developed fixed point theory. In the treatment of the applications awide range of mathematical theories and methods from nonlinear analy sis and integration theory are applied an outline of which has been given in an appendix chapter to make the book self-contained. Graduate students and researchers innonlinear analysis, pure and applied mathematics, game theory and mathematical economics will find this book useful |

Note: | This volume covers recent developments in the design, operation, and management of telecommunication and computer network systems in performance engineering and addresses issues of uncertainty, robustness, and risk. Uncertaintyregarding loading and s ystem parameters leads to challenging optimization and robustness issues. Stochastic modeling combined with optimization theory ensures the optimum end-to-end performance of telecommunication or computer networksystems. In view of the diverse design optio ns possible, supporting models have many adjustable parameters and choosing the best set for a particular performance objective is delicate and time-consuming. An optimization based approachdetermines the optimal possible allocation for these parameters. Researchers and graduate students working at the interface of telecommunications and operations research will benefit from this book. Due to the practical approach, thisbook will also serve as a reference tool for scientists and engineers in telecommunica tion and computer networks who depend upon optimization |

Note: | The book first describes connections between some basic problems and technics of combinatorics and statistical physics. The discrete mathematics and physics terminology are related to each other. Using the establishedconnections, some exciting activi ties in one field are shown from a perspective of the other field. The purpose of the book is to emphasize these interactions as a strong and successful tool. In fact, this attitude has been a strongtrend in both research communities recently. It also nat urally leads to many open problems, some of which seem to be basic. Hopefully, this book will help making these exciting problems attractive to advanced students and researchers.Basic concepts - Introduction to Graph Theory - Trees and electrical networks Matroids - Geometric representations of graphs - Game of dualities - The zeta function and graph polynomials Knots - 2D Ising and dimer models -Advanced Graduate Students in Mathematics, Physics and Computer Sciences - Researchers Prof. Dr. Martin Loeb l, Dept. of Mathematics, Charles University, Prague |

Title: | Simulating Complex Systems by Cellular Automata [electronic resource] |

Note: | Deeply rooted in fundamental research in Mathematics and Computer Science, Cellular Automata (CA) are recognized as an intuitive modeling paradigm for Complex Systems. Already very basic CA, with extremely simple micro dynamicssuch as the Game of Lif e, show an almost endless display of complex emergent behavior. Conversely, CA can also be designed to produce a desired emergent behavior, using either theoretical methodologies or evolutionary techniques.Meanwhile, beyond the original realm of applicati ons - Physics, Computer Science, and Mathematics CA have also become work horses in very different disciplines such as epidemiology, immunology, sociology, and finance. In thiscontext of fast and impressive progress, spurred further by the enormous attra ction these topics have on students, this book emerges as a welcome overview of the field for its practitioners, as well as a good starting point fordetailed study on the graduate and post-graduate level. The book contains three parts, two major parts on theory and applications, and a smaller part on software. The theory part contains fundamental chapters on how to design and/orapply CA for many different areas. In the applications part a number of representative examples of really using CA in a broad ran ge of disciplines is provided - this part will give the reader a good idea of the real strength of thiskind of modeling as well as the incentive to apply CA in their own field of study |

Title: | Quantitative Sociodynamics [electronic resource] : Stochastic Methods and Models of Social Interaction Processes |

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. |
