Title: | Empirical Agent-Based Modelling - Challenges and Solutions [electronic resource] : Volume 1, The Characterisation and Parameterisation of Empirical Agent-Based Models |
Author(s): |
Alexander Smajgl Olivier Barreteau |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This instructional bookshowcases techniques to parameterise human agents in empirical agent-based models(ABM). In doing so, it provides a timely overview of key ABM methodologies and the most innovative approaches through avariety of empirical applic ations. It features cutting-edge research from leading academics and practitioners, and will provide a guide for characterising and parameterising human agents in empirical ABM.In order to facilitatelearning, this text shares the valuable experiences of o ther modellers in particular modelling situations. Very little has been published in the area of empirical ABM, and this contributed volume will appeal to graduate-level studentsand researchers studying simulation modeling in economics, sociology, ecology , and trans-disciplinary studies, such as topics related to sustainability. In a similar vein to the instruction found in a cookbook, this text provides theempirical modeller with a set of 'recipes' ready to be implemented. Agent-based modeling (ABM) is a powerful, simulation-modeling technique that has seen a dramatic increase in real-world applications in recent years. In ABM, asystem is modeled as a collection of autonomous decision-making entities called agents. Each agent individually assesses its si tuation and makes decisions on the basis of a set of rules. Agents may execute various behaviorsappropriate for the system they representfor example, producing, consuming, or selling. ABM is increasingly used for simulating real-world systems, such as nat ural resource use, transportation, public health, andconflict.Decision makers increasingly demand support that covers a multitude of indicators that can be effectively addressed using ABM. This is especially the case in situations where human behavior is identified as a criticalelement. As a result, ABM will only continue its rapid growth. This is the first volume in a series of books that aims to contribute to a cultural chan |

Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | Applied Spatial Data Analysis with R, Second Edition, is divided into two basic parts, the first presenting R packages, functions, classes and methods for handling spatial data. This part is of interest to users who need to accessand visualise spatia l data. Data import and export for many file formats for spatial data are covered in detail, as is the interface between R and the open source GRASS GIS and the handling of spatio-temporal data. The second partshowcases more specialised kinds of spatial d ata analysis, including spatial point pattern analysis, interpolation and geostatistics, areal data analysis and disease mapping. The coverage of methods of spatial data analysis ranges fromstandard techniques to new developments, and the examples used ar e largely taken from the spatial statistics literature. All the examples can be run using R contributed packages available from the CRAN website, with code and additionaldata sets from the book's own website. Compared to the first edition, the second edit ion covers the more systematic approach towards handling spatial data in R, as well as a number of important and widely used CRAN packages that haveappeared since the first edition. This book will be of interest to researchers who intend to use R to hand le, visualise, and analyse spatial data. It will also be of interest to spatial data analysts who do not use R, but who areinterested in practical aspects of implementing software for spatial data analysis. It is a suitable companion book for introductory spatial statistics courses and for applied methods courses in a wide range of subjects using spatialdata, including human and physical geography, geographical information science and geoinformatics, the environmental sciences, ecology, public health and disease control, economics, public administration and political science. Thebook has a website where complete code examples, data sets, and other support material may be found: http://www.asdar-boo |

Note: | The book will serve as a guide to many actuarial concepts and statistical techniques in multiple decrement models and their application in calculation of premiums and reserves in life insurance products with riders and in pensionand employee benefit plans as in these schemes, the benefit paid on termination of employment depends upon the several causes of termination. Multiple state models are discussed to accommodate the insurance products in which thepayment of benefits or premiums is dependent on being in a given state or moving between a given pair of states at a given time, for example, disability income insurance model. The book also discusses stochastic models for interestrates and calculation of premiums for some products in this set up. The highlight of the book is usage of R software, freely available from public domain, for computations of various monetary functions involved in insurance business. Rcommands are given for all the computations |

Note: | Springer e-book platform |
Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | The purpose of this book is to introduce, discuss, illustrate, and evaluate the colorful palette of analytical techniques that can be applied to the analysis of household survey data, with an emphasis on the innovations of thepast decade or so. Most of the chapters begin by introducing a methodological or policy problem, to motivate the subsequent discussion of relevant methods. They then summarize the relevant techniques, and draw on examples many ofthem from the authors own work and aim to convey a sense of the potential, but also the strengths and weaknesses, of those techniques. This book is meant for graduate students in statistics, economics, policy analysis, andsocial sciences, especially, but certainly not exclusively, those interested in t he challenges of economic development in the Third World. Additionally, the book will be useful to academics and practitioners who work closely withsurvey data. This is a book that can serve as a reference work, to be taken down from the shelf and perused from time to time. Dominique Haughton is Professor of Mathematical Sciences at Bentley University and Affiliated Researcher atUniversit Toulouse I. Jonathan Haughton is Professor of Economics at Suffolk University and Senior Economist at the Beacon Hill Institute for Public Policy |

Note: | The increasingly complex environment of today's world, characterized by technological innovation and global communication, generates myriads of possible and actual interactions while limited physical and intellectual resourcesseverely impinge on deci sion makers, be it in the public or private domains. At the core of the decision-making process is the need for quality information that allows the decision maker to better assess the impact of decisions interms of outcomes, nonlinear feedback processes a nd time delays on the performance of the complex system invoked. This volume is a timely review on the principles underlying complex decision making, the handling of uncertainties indynamic envrionments and of the various modeling approaches used. The boo k consists of five parts, each composed of several chapters: I: Complex Decision Making: Concepts, Theories and Empirical Evidence II: Tools and Techniques forDecision Making in Complex Environments and Systems III: System Dynamics and Agent-Based Modelin g IV: Methodological Issues V: Future Directions |

Note: | Recurrent event data arise in diverse fields such as medicine, public health, insurance, social science, economics, manufacturing and reliability. The purpose of this book is to present models and statistical methods for theanalysis of recurrent even t data. No single comprehensive treatment of these areas currently exists. The authors provide broad but detailed coverage of the major approaches to analysis, while also emphasizing the modeling assumptionsthat they are based on. Thus, they consider impo rtant models such as Poisson and renewal processes, with extensions to incorporate covariates or random effects. More general intensity-based models are also considered, as well assimpler models that focus on rate or mean functions. Parametric, nonparamet ric and semiparametric methodologies are all covered, with clear descriptions of procedures for estimation, testing and model checking. Important practicaltopics such as observation schemes and selection of individuals for study, the planning of randomize d experiments, events of several types, and the prediction of future events are considered. Methods of modeling and analysis areillustrated through many examples taken from health research and industry. The objectives and interpretations of different anal yses are discussed in detail, and issues of robustness are addressed. Statistical analysis of the examplesis carried out with S-PLUS software and code is given for some examples. This book is directed at graduate students, researchers, and applied statist icians working in industry, government or academia. Some familiarity with survivalanalysis is beneficial since survival software is used to carry out many of the analyses considered. This book can be used as a textbook for a graduate course on the analysi s of recurrent events or as a reference for a more generalcourse on event history analysis. Problems are given at the end of chapters to reinforce the material presented and to provide additional backgr |

Note: | Approval Voting proposes a compelling way to elect some 500,000 officials in public elections. Under this system voters may vote for, or approve of, as many candidates as they like in multicandidate elections. Among the manybenefits of approval votin g are its propensity to elect the majority candidate (rather than the strongest minority candidate, as often occurs under plurality voting), its relative invulnerability to insincere or strategic voting,andby offering voters the opportunity to influence e lection outcomes more equitablya probable increase in voter turnout. Since the publication of the first edition of this book, its arguments in favor of an election reformpractically unknown in 1983 have stood the test of time. Perhaps the proof of the pud ding lies in the adoption of approval voting by about a dozen professional societiesseveral with tens of thousands of membersand their generallyfavorable experience with it. After a generation of discussion and debate on the subject, the authors remain co nvinced that Approval Voting is as relevant today as it was when rigorous analysis and systematic empirical research on thiselection reform began more than 30 years ago |

Note: | All the data was out there to warn us of this impending attack, why didn't we see it? This was a frequently asked question in the weeks and months after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon onSeptember 11, 2001. In the wak e of the attacks, statisticians moved quickly to become part of the national response to the global war on terror. This book is an overview of the emerging research program at the intersection of nationalsecurity and statistical sciences. A wide range of talented researchers address issues in . Syndromic Surveillance---How do we detect and recognize bioterrorist events? . Modeling and Simulation---How do we better understand andexplain complex processes so that decision makers can take the best course of action? . Biometric Authentication---How do we pick the terrorist out of the crowd of faces or better match the passport to the traveler? . Game Theory---Howdo we understand the rules that terrorists are playing by? This book includes technical treatments of statistical issues that will be of use to quantitative researchers as well as more general examinations of quantitative approaches tocounterterrorism that will be accessible to decision makers with stronger policy backgrounds. Dr. Alyson G. Wilson is a statistician and the technical lead for DoD programs in the Statistical Sciences Group at Los Alamos NationalLaboratory. Dr. Gregory D. Wilson is a rhetorician and ethnographer in the Statistical Sciences Group at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Dr. Dav id H. Olwell is chair of the Department of Systems Engineering at the Naval PostgraduateSchool in Monterey, California |

Title: | Modeling Longitudinal Data [electronic resource] |

Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | Longitudinal data are ubiquitous across Medicine, Public Health, Public Policy, Psychology, Political Science, Biology, Sociology and Education, yet many longitudinal data sets remain improperly analyzed. This book teaches the artand statistical scie nce of modern longitudinal data analysis. The author emphasizes specifying, understanding, and interpreting longitudinal data models. He inspects the longitudinal data graphically, analyzes the time trend andcovariates, models the covariance matrix, and t hen draws conclusions. Covariance models covered include random effects, autoregressive, autoregressive moving average, antedependence, factor analytic, and completely unstructured modelsamong others. Longer expositions explore: an introduction to and cri tique of simple non-longitudinal analyses of longitudinal data, missing data concepts, diagnostics, and simultaneous modeling of two longitudinal variables.Applications and issues for random effects models cover estimation, shrinkage, clustered data, mode ls for binary and count data and residuals and residual plots. Shorter sections include a general discussion of how computationalalgorithms work, handling transformed data, and basic design issues. This book requires a solid regression course as backgroun d and is particularly intended for the final year of a Biostatistics or Statistics Masters degree curriculum.The mathematical prerequisite is generally low, mainly assuming familiarity with regression analysis in matrix form. Doctoral students in Biostati stics or Statistics, applied researchers and quantitative doctoral students indisciplines such as Medicine, Public Health, Public Policy, Psychology, Political Science, Biology, Sociology and Education will find this book invaluable. The book has many fig ures and tables illustrating longitudinal data andnumerous homework problems. The associated web site contains many longitudinal data sets, examples of computer code, and labs to re-enforce the material |
