Title:Complexity, Cognition and the City [electronic resource]
Author(s): Juval Portugali
Date:2011
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Complexity, Cognition and the City aims at a deeper understanding of urbanism, while invoking, on an equal footing, the contributions both the hard and soft sciences have made, and are still making, when grappling with the manyissues and facets of re gional planning and dynamics. In this work, the author goes beyond merely seeing the city as a self-organized, emerging pattern of some collective interaction between many stylized urban agents he makesthe crucial step of attributing cognition to his age nts and thus raises, for the first time, the question on how to deal with a complex system composed of many interacting complex agents in clearly defined settings. Accordingly, theauthor eventually addresses issues of practical relevance for urban planner s and decision makers. The book unfolds its message in a largely nontechnical manner, so as to provide a broad interdisciplinary readership with insights,ideas, and other stimuli to encourage further research with the twofold aim of further pushing back the boundaries of complexity science and emphasizing the all-important interrelation of hard and soft sciences in recognizing thecognitive sciences as another necessary ingredient for meaningful urban studies

Title:Innovation Networks [electronic resource] : New Approaches in Modelling and Analyzing
Author(s): Andreas Pyka
Andrea Scharnhorst
Date:2009
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The science of graphs and networks has become by now a well-established tool for modelling and analyzing a variety of systems with a large number of interacting components. Starting from the physical sciences, applications havespread rapidly to the n atural and social sciences, as well as to economics, and are now further extended, in this volume, to the concept of innovations, viewed broadly. In an abstract, systems-theoretical approach, innovation can beunderstood as a critical event which destabili zes the current state of the system, and results in a new process of self-organization leading to a new stable state. The contributions to this anthology address different aspects of therelationship between innovation and networks. The various chapters in corporate approaches in evolutionary economics, agent-based modeling, social network analysis and econophysics and explore the epistemic tension between insights intoeconomics and society-related processes, and the insights into new forms of complex dynam ics

Title:Transportation Systems Analysis [electronic resource] : Models and Applications
Author(s): Ennio Cascetta
Date:2009
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book provides a comprehensive and systematic presentation of the mathematical models for the simulation of transportation systems and the methodologies for the analysis and design of these systems. Theoretical andoperational aspects are presente d in a rigorous and exhaustive framework, addressing a broad range of applications performed by researchers and practitioners. Topics are presented with an increasing level of detail and complexity. Inthis 2nd edition the author extends and generalizes th e contents of the previous edition entitled Transportation Systems Engineering: Theory and Methods published in 2001. In addition to entirely new material dealing with therecent developments in the field, the text has been revised to simplify the presenta tion. The Bibliography has also been expanded significantly. All the topics are presented with simple numerical examples as well as with references toreal-life applications. The material is structured so as to offer different levels of complexity and diff erent reading paths based on the readers needs. It is suitable for graduate level courses on transportation analysis andplanning. Prerequisites include a basic knowledge of calculus, optimization techniques, probability theory and statistics. Due to the b readth and depth of topics covered, the book will also serve as an excellent reference guide forresearchers, teachers and practitioners
