Title:Why Society is a Complex Matter [electronic resource] : Meeting Twenty-first Century Challenges with a New Kind of Science
Author(s): Philip Ball
Date:2012
Edition:1
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Society is complicated. But this book argues that this does not place it beyond the reach of a science that can help to explain and perhaps even to predict social behaviour. As a system made up of many interacting agents people, groups, institutions and governments, as well as physical and technological structures such as roads and computer networks society can be regarded as a complex system. In recent years, scientists have made great progress inunderstanding how such complex systems operate, rang ing from animal populations to earthquakes and weather. These systems show behaviours that cannot be predicted or intuited by focusing on the individual components, but which emergespontaneously as a consequence of their interactions: they are said to be self-organized. Attempts to direct or manage such emergent properties generally reveal that top-down approaches, which try to dictate a particularoutcome, are ineffectual, and that what is needed instead is a bottom-up approach that aims to guide self-org anization towards desirable states. This book shows how some of these ideas from the science of complexity can beapplied to the study and management of social phenomena, including traffic flow, economic markets, opinion formation and the growth and struct ure of cities. Building on these successes, the book argues that the complex-systems view ofthe social sciences has now matured sufficiently for it to be possible, desirable and perhaps essential to attempt a grander objective: to integrate these efforts into a unified scheme for studying, understanding and ultimatelypredicting what happens in the world we have made. Such a scheme would require the mobilization and collaboration of many different research communities, and would allow society and its inter actions with the physical environment to beexplored through realistic models and large-scale data collection and analysis. It should enable us to find new and effective solutions

Title:Optimization for Industrial Problems [electronic resource]
Author(s): Patrick Bangert
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Industrial optimization lies on the crossroads between mathematics, computer science, engineering and management. This book presents these fields as a conversation between the theory of mathematics and computer science and casestudies demonstrating e ngineering and management. Most of all, the case studies illustrate what may reasonably be expected from an optimization project in a commercial enterprise. While many other books treat some of the aspects ofthis book, it is practical and may be used as a manual for conducting an optimization project. This book will not make its reader into a mathematician but it will help him to improve his plant. The book requires no mathematical ortechnical background beyond a good high school training all else is addr essed within. It is aimed at managers or engineers of industrial facilities and is also suitable for university students and their professors as an illustrationof how academic material may be used in real life. The book includes 19 case studies that were conducted in real plants. They include chemical plants, fossil power plants, wind power plants, nuclear power plants, oil refineries, oilproduction plants, injection molding fascilities and retail industry shops. All case studies were conducted by the aut hor in cooperation and co-authorship with some of the leading industrial enterprises including RWE, Vattenfall, EDF,PetroChina, Vestolit, Sasol, and Hella
