Title:Networks and Network Analysis for Defence and Security [electronic resource]
Author(s): Anthony J Masys
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Networks and Network Analysis for Defence and Security discusses relevant theoretical frameworks and applications of network analysis in support of the defence and security domains. This book details real world applications ofnetwork analysis to supp ort defence and security. Shocks to regional, national and global systems stemming from natural hazards, acts of armed violence, terrorism and serious and organized crime have significant defence and securityimplications. Today, nations face an uncertain and complex security landscape in which threats impact/target the physical, social, economic and cyber domains. Threats to national security, such as that against critical infrastructuresnot only stem from man-made acts but also from natural hazards. Katr ina (2005), Fukushima (2011) and Hurricane Sandy (2012) are examples highlighting the vulnerability of critical infrastructures to natural hazards and the cripplingeffect they have on the social and economic well-being of a community and a nation. With th is dynamic and complex threat landscape, network analysis has emerged as a key enabler in supporting defence and security. With the advent ofbig data and increasing processing power, network analysis can reveal insights with regards to structural and dyna mic properties thereby facilitating greater understanding of complex networks, their entities, interdependencies,vulnerabilities to produce insights for creative solutions. This book will be well positioned to inform defence, security and intelligence pro fessionals and researchers with regards to leading methodologies and approaches

Title:Earth System Monitoring [electronic resource] : Selected Entries from the Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Modern Earth System Monitoring represents a fundamental change in the way scientists study the Earth System. In Oceanography, for the past two centuries, ships have provided the platforms for observing. Expeditions on thecontinents and Earths poles a re land-based analogues. Fundamental understanding of current systems, climate, natural hazards, and ecosystems has been greatly advanced. While these approaches have been remarkably successful, the needto establish measurements over time can only be made using Earth observations and observatories with exacting standards and continuous data. The 19 peer-reviewed contributions in this volume provide early insights into this emergingview of Earth in both space and time in which change is a critical componen t of our growingunderstanding. Presents 19 authoritative, peer-reviewed entries from the Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology Covers a widerange of data collection platforms, including satellite remote sensing, aerial surveys, and land- a nd ocean-based monitoring stations Features a glossary of key terms and a concise definition of the subject for each contributionWritten for an audience of undergraduate and graduate students, as well as professionals in academia, industry, and government

Title:Extreme Man-Made and Natural Hazards in Dynamics of Structures [electronic resource]
Author(s): Adnan Ibrahimbegovic
Ivica Kozar
Date:2007
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book provides a critical assessment of the current knowledge and indicates new challenges which are brought about at present times by fighting man-made and natural hazards in transient analysis of structures. The latterconcerns both permanently f ixed structures, such as those built to protect people and/or sensitive storage material (e.g. military installations) or special structures found in transportation systems (e.g. bridges, tunnels), and movingstructures (such as trains, planes, ships or ca rs). The present threat of terrorist attacks or accidental explosions, the climate change which brings strong stormy winds or even the destructive earthquake motion that occurs inpreviously inactive regions or brings about tsunamis, are a few examples of the kind of applications addressed in this work. Problems of such diversity cannot be placed within a single traditional scientific discipline, but call forthe expertise in probability theory for quantifying the cause, interaction problems for better unde rstanding the physical nature of the problems, as well as modeling and computational techniques for improving the representation ofinelastic behavior mechanisms and providing the optimal design

Title:Dynamic Regression Models for Survival Data [electronic resource]
Author(s): Torben Martinussen
Thomas H Scheike
Date:2006
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In survival analysis there has long been a need for models that goes beyond the Cox model as the proportional hazards assumption often fails in practice. This book studies and applies modern flexible regression models forsurvival data with a special focus on extensions of the Cox model and alternative models with the specific aim of describing time-varying effects of explanatory variables. One model that receives special attention is Aalens additivehazards model that is particularly well suited for d ealing with time-varying effects. The book covers the use of residuals and resampling techniques to assess the fit of the models and also points out how the suggested models can beutilised for clustered survival data. The authors demonstrate the practical ly important aspect of how to do hypothesis testing of time-varying effects making backwards model selection strategies possible for the flexible modelsconsidered. The use of the suggested models and methods is illustrated on real data examples. The metho ds are available in the R-package timereg developed by the authors, which is applied throughout the book with worked examples forthe data sets. This gives the reader a unique chance of obtaining hands-on experience. This book is well suited for statistica l consultants as well as for those who would like to see more about the theoretical justification of thesuggested procedures. It can be used as a textbook for a graduate/master course in survival analysis, and students will appreciate the exercises includ ed after each chapter. The applied side of the book with many worked examplesaccompanied with R-code shows in detail how one can analyse real data and at the same time gives a deeper understanding of the underlying theory. Torben Martinussen is at the Dep artment of Natural Sciences at the Royal Veterinary andAgricultural University. He has a Ph.D. from University of Copenhagen and is associate editor of the Scandinavian Journal of Statistics. Thomas
