Title:Newton-Type Methods for Optimization and Variational Problems [electronic resource]
Author(s): Alexey F Izmailov
Mikhail V Solodov
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book presents comprehensive state-of-the-art theoretical analysis of the fundamental Newtonian and Newtonian-related approaches to solving optimization and variational problems. A central focus is the relationship between thebasic Newton scheme for a given problem and algorithms that also enjoy fast local convergence. The authors develop general perturbed Newtonian frameworks that preserve fast convergence and consider specific algorithms as particularcases within those frameworks, i.e., as pert urbations of the associated basic Newton iterations. This approach yields a set of tools for the unified treatment of various algorithms, including some not of the Newton type per se. Amongthe new subjects addressed is the class of degenerate problems. In particular, the phenomenon of attraction of Newton iterates to critical Lagrange multipliers and its consequences as well as stabilized Newton methods for variationalproblems and stabilized sequential quadratic programming for optimization. This volume w ill be useful to researchers and graduate students in the fields of optimization and variational analysis

Title:Constructal Law and the Unifying Principle of Design [electronic resource]

Note:Design happens everywhere, whether in animate objects (e.g., dendritic lung structures, bacterial colonies, and corals), inanimate patterns (river basins, beach slope, and dendritic crystals), social dynamics (pedestrian trafficflows), or engineered systems (heat dissipation in electronic circuitry). This design in nature often takes on remarkably similar patterns, which can be explained under one unifying Constructal Law. This book explores theunifying power of the Constructal Law and its applicatio ns in all domains of design generation and evolution, ranging from biology and geophysics to globalization, energy, sustainability, and security. The Constructal Law accountsfor the universal tendency of flow systems to morph into evolving configurations that provide greater and easier access over time. The Constructal Law resolves the many and contradictory ad hoc statements of optimality, enddesign, and destiny in nature, such as minimum and maximum entropy production and minimum and maximum flow resist ance, and also explains the designs that are observed and copied in biomimetics. Constructal Law and the UnifyingPrinciple of Design covers the fundamentals of Constructal Theory and Design, as well as presenting a variety of state-of-the-art applications . Experts from the biological, physical and social sciences demonstrate the unification ofall design phenomena in nature, and apply this knowledge to novel designs in modern engineering, such as vascularization for self-healing and self-cooling materials for aircraft, and tree fins and cavities for heat transferenhancement. Captures a world-wide movement toward design as science Defines the place of the Constructal Law in physics and thermodynamics Features an interdisciplinaryapproach that spans phys ics, biology, engineering and the social sciences Demonstrates that a single law of physics governs all the pheno

Title:Social Self-Organization [electronic resource] : Agent-Based Simulations and Experiments to Study Emergent Social Behavior

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

Title:Modelling Operational Risk Using Bayesian Inference [electronic resource]
Author(s): Pavel V Shevchenko
Date:2011
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The management of operational risk in the banking industry has undergone explosive changes over the last decade due to substantial changes in the operational environment. Globalization, deregulation, the use of complex financialproducts, and changes in information technology have resulted in exposure to new risks which are very different from market and credit risks. In response, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision has developed a new regulatoryframework for capital measurement and standards f or the banking sector. This has formally defined operational risk and introduced corresponding capital requirements. Many banks are undertaking quantitative modelling of operational riskusing the Loss Distribution Approach (LDA) based on statistical quant ification of the frequency and severity of operational risk losses. There are a number of unresolved methodological challenges in the LDA implementation. Overall, thearea of quantitative operational risk is very new and different methods are under hot deb ate. This book is devoted to quantitative issues in LDA. In particular, the use of Bayesian inference is the main focus. Though it is very new inthis area, the Bayesian approach is well suited for modelling operational risk, as it allows for a consistent and convenient statistical framework for quantifying the uncertainties involved. It also allows for the combination of expertopinion with historical internal and external data in estimation procedures. These are critical, especially for low-frequency/high -impact operational risks. This book is aimed at practitioners in risk management, academic researchersin financial mathematics, banking industry regulators and advanced graduate students in the area. It is a must-read for anyone who works, teaches or doe s research in the area of financial risk

Title:Evolution from Cellular to Social Scales [electronic resource]

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
