Author(s)Gon??alves, Bruno;Menezes, Ronaldo;Sinatra, Roberta;Zlatic, Vinko
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2017.
DescriptionXIV, 262 p. 88 illus., 75 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book collects the works presented at the 8th International Conference on Complex Networks (CompleNet) 2017 in Dubrovnik, Croatia, on March 21-24, 2017. CompleNet aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners working in areas related to complex networks. The past two decades has witnessed an exponential increase in the number of publications within this field. From biological systems to computer science, from economic to social systems, complex networks are becoming pervasive in many fields of science. It is this interdisciplinary nature of complex networks that CompleNet aims at addressing. The last decades have seen the emergence of complex networks as the language with which a wide range of complex phenomena in fields as diverse as physics, computer science, and medicine (to name a few) can be properly described and understood. This book provides a view of the state-of-the-art in this dynamic field and covers topics such as network controllability, social structure, online behavior, recommendation systems, and network structure

TitleStatistical Physics and Computational Methods for Evolutionary Game Theory
Author(s)Javarone, Marco Alberto
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2018.
DescriptionIX, 74 p. 27 illus., 25 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book presents an introduction to Evolutionary Game Theory (EGT) which is an emerging field in the area of complex systems attracting the attention of researchers from disparate scientific communities. EGT allows one to represent and study several complex phenomena, such as the emergence of cooperation in social systems, the role of conformity in shaping the equilibrium of a population, and the dynamics in biological and ecological systems. Since EGT models belong to the area of complex systems, statistical physics constitutes a fundamental ingredient for investigating their behavior. At the same time, the complexity of some EGT models, such as those realized by means of agent-based methods, often require the implementation of numerical simulations. Therefore, beyond providing an introduction to EGT, this book gives a brief overview of the main statistical physics tools (such as phase transitions and the Ising model) and computational strategies for simulating evolutionary games (such as Monte Carlo algorithms on lattices). ??This book will appeal to students and researchers in this burgeoning field of complex systems

Abstract NoteThis book contains original research chapters related to the interdisciplinary field of complex networks spanning biological and environmental networks, social, technological, and economic networks. Many natural phenomena can be modeled as networks where nodes are the primitive compounds and links represent their interactions, similarities, or distances of sorts. Complex networks have an enormous impact on research in various fields like biology, social sciences, engineering, and cyber-security to name a few. The topology of a network often encompasses important information on the functionality and dynamics of the system or the phenomenon it represents. Network science is an emerging interdisciplinary discipline that provides tools and insights to researchers in a variety of domains. NetSci-X is the central winter conference within the field and brings together leading researchers and innovators to connect, meet, and establish interdisciplinary channels for collaboration. It is the largest and best known event in the area of network science. This text demonstrates how ideas formulated by authors with different backgrounds are transformed into models, methods, and algorithms that are used to study complex systems across different domains and will appeal to researchers and students within in the field.

TitleIncident on Simpac III : A Scientific Novel
Author(s)Brugge, Doug
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2018.
DescriptionIX, 234 p : online resource
Abstract NoteA few hundred years into the future, a wave of space colonization follows a disastrous earlier attempt to inhabit nearby extrasolar planets. It is guided by a new computational method based on massive data-driven socio-cultural and socio-epidemiological modeling and using novel biological computers, fed with data on Earth???s history of successes and failures. Yet, in the newly settled Simpac system, some unexpected and worrying anomalies begin cropping up, making an urgent expedition to the system necessary: is it the underlying data, the computations, or is some unknown entity tampering with the space colonization program? A race against time ensues as the lives of four strangers begin to converge. While grounded in the social systems aspect, the author posits that the future is likely to be characterized by more biology-based tools than most contemporary science fiction ??? which most often relies entirely on non-biological hardware in terms of advanced technologies ??? predicts. The result is an entertaining and skillful blend of thriller and SF, complemented by a nontechnical appendix describing the underlying science. About the Author: Doug Brugge holds a PhD in Biology from Harvard University and an MS in Industrial Hygiene from the Harvard School of Public Health. He is currently a Professor at the Department of Public Health and Community Medicine at Tufts University School of Medicine. He has secondary appointments in Civil and Environmental Engineering and at the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Active Citizenship and Public Service. Most of his work employs a community-based participatory research approach with a deep commitment to translating research into concrete policies and practices. He is the author of Particles in the Air: The Deadliest Pollutant is One You Breathe Every Day (Springer 2018). ???A taut, brilliantly crafted thriller! Brugge reminds us that the fabric of every society contains the pull threads for its unraveling.??? ???Len Boswell, author, A Grave Misunderstanding
