TitleCo-evolution of intelligent socio-technical systems : modelling and applications in large scale emergency and transport domains
Author(s)Eve Mitleton-Kelly (ed.)
PublicationBerlin, Springer, 2013.
Description1 online resource
Abstract NoteAs the interconnectivity between humans through technical devices is becoming ubiquitous, the next step is already in the making: ambient intelligence, i.e. smart (technical) environments, which will eventually play the same active role in communication as the human players, leading to a co-evolution in all domains where real-time communication is essential. This topical volume, based on the findings of the Socionical European research project, gives equal attention to two highly relevant domains of applications: transport, specifically traffic, dynamics from the viewpoint of a socio-technical interaction and evacuation scenarios for large-scale emergency situations. Care was taken to investigate as much as possible the limits of scalability and to combine the modeling using complex systems science approaches with relevant data analysis

TitleExtreme events in nature and society
Author(s)S. Albeverio (ed.);V. Jentsch (ed.);H. Kantz (ed.)
PublicationBerlin, Springer, 2006.
Description1 online resource (xv, 352 p.) : ill
Abstract NotePresents unifying and distinguishing features of extreme events, including problems of understanding and modelling their origin, spatial and temporal extension, and potential impact. This book aims to help in the difficult problem of anticipation: forecasting the event and proposing measures to moderate or prevent it
