Focusing on financial, security and social aspects of networking, the volume adds to the growing body of evidence showing that network analysis has applications to transportation,communication, health, finance, and social policy mor e broadly. It provides powerful models for understanding the behavior of complex systems that, in turn, will impact numerous cutting-edge sectors in science and engineering, such aswireless communication, network security, distributed computing and social networking, financial analysis, and cyber warfare. The volume offers an insider' s view of cutting-edge research in network systems, including methodologieswith immense potential for interdisciplinary application. The contributors have all presented mate rial at a series of workshops organized on behalf of Canadas MITACS initiative, which funds projects and study grants inmathematics for information technology and complex systems. These proceedings include papers from workshops on financial networks, netw ork security and cryptography, and social networks. MITACS has shown that the partlyghettoized nature of network systems research has led to duplicated work in discrete fields, and thus this initiative has the potential to save time and accelerate the pac e of research in a number of areas of network systemsresearch Note: Springer eBooks Contents: FINANCIAL NETWORKS: 1.

Chapter 1 introduces the multi-scale and multi-level systems and highlights their presence in different domains of science and technology. Methodologies as, random systems,non-Archimedean analysis, category theory and specific t echniques as model categorification and integrative closure, are presented in chapter 2. Chapters 3 and 4 describe polystochastic models, PSM, and their developments. Categoricalformulation of integrative closure offers the general PSM framework which ser ves as a flexible guideline for a large variety of multi-level modeling problems. Focusing on chemical engineering, pharmaceutical and environmental casestudies, the chapters 5 to 8 analyze mixing, turbulent dispersion and entropy production for multi-sca le systems. Taking inspiration from systems sciences, chapters 9 to 11 highlight multi-level modeling potentialities in formalconcept analysis, existential graphs and evolvable designs of experiments. Case studies refer to separation flow-sheets, pharmace utical pipeline, drug design and development, reliability management systems, security and failureanalysis. Perspectives and integrative points of view are discussed in chapter 12. Autonomous and viable systems, multi-agents, organic and autonomic computi ng, multi-level informational systems, are revealed as promising domains forfuture applications.
