Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  IX, 279 p. 131 illus., 123 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is comprised of the latest research into CSS methods, uses, and results, as presented at the 2020 annual conference of the Computational Social Science Society of the Americas (CSSSA). Computational social science (CSS) is the science that investigates social and behavioral dynamics through social simulation, social network analysis, and social media analysis. The CSSSA is a professional society that aims to advance the field of computational social science in all areas, including basic and applied orientations, by holding conferences and workshops, promoting standards of scientific excellence in research and teaching, and publishing research findings and results. The abovementioned conference was held virtually, October 8 ??? 11, 2020. What follows is a diverse representation of new results and approaches to using the tools of CSS and agentbased modeling (ABM) in exploring complex phenomena across many different domains. Readers will therefore not only have the results of these specific projects upon which to build, along with a wealth of casestudy examples that can serve as meaningful exemplars for new research projects and activities, they will also gain a greater appreciation for the broad scope of CSS

Title  Boundaries of a Complex World 
Author(s)  Ludu, Andrei 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2016. 
Description  XIII, 361 p. 158 illus., 112 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The central theme of this book is the extent to which the structure of the free dynamical boundaries of a system controls the evolution of the system as a whole. Applying three orthogonal types of thinking  mathematical, constructivist and morphological, it illustrates these concepts using applications to selected problems from the social and life sciences, as well as economics. ??In a broader context, it introduces and reviews some modern mathematical approaches to the science of complex systems. Standard modeling approaches (based on nonlinear differential equations, dynamic systems, graph theory, cellular automata, stochastic processes, or information theory) are suitable for studying local problems. However they cannot simultaneously take into account all the different facets and phenomena of a complex system, and new approaches are required to solve the challenging problem of correlations between phenomena at different levels and hierarchies, their selforganization and memoryevolutive aspects, the growth of additional structures and are ultimately required to explain why and how such complex systems can display both robustness and flexibility. ????This graduatelevel text also addresses a broader interdisciplinary audience, keeping the mathematical level essentially uniform throughout the book, and involving only basic elements from calculus, algebra, geometry and systems theory. ??

Title  Survival under Uncertainty : An Introduction to Probability Models of Social Structure and Evolution 
Author(s)  Volchenkov, Dimitri 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIV, 238 p. 55 illus., 44 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book introduces and studies a number of stochastic models of subsistence, communication, social evolution and political transition that will allow the reader to grasp the role of uncertainty as a fundamental property of our irreversible world. At the same time, it aims to bring about a more interdisciplinary and quantitative approach across very diverse fields of research in the humanities and social sciences. Through the examples treated in this work ??? including anthropology, demography, migration, geopolitics, management, and bioecology, among other things ??? evidence is gathered to show that volatile environments may change the rules of the evolutionary selection and dynamics of any social system, creating a situation of adaptive uncertainty, in particular, whenever the rate of change of the environment exceeds the rate of adaptation. Last but not least, it is hoped that this book will contribute to the understanding that inherent randomness can also be a great opportunity ??? for social systems and individuals alike ??? to help face the challenge of ???survival under uncertainty???

Title  An Introduction to Complex Systems : Society, Ecology, and Nonlinear Dynamics 
Author(s)  Fieguth, Paul 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XII, 346 p. 243 illus., 178 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This undergraduate text explores a variety of largescale phenomena  global warming, ice ages, water, poverty  and uses these case studies as a motivation to explore nonlinear dynamics, powerlaw statistics, and complex systems. Although the detailed mathematical descriptions of these topics can be challenging, the consequences of a system being nonlinear, powerlaw, or complex are in fact quite accessible. This book blends a tutorial approach to the mathematical aspects of complex systems together with a complementary narrative on the global/ecological/societal implications of such systems. Nearly all engineering undergraduate courses focus on mathematics and systems which are small scale, linear, and Gaussian. Unfortunately there is not a single largescale ecological or social phenomenon that is scalar, linear, and Gaussian. This book offers students insights to better understand the largescale problems facing the world and to realize that these cannot be solved by a single, narrow academic field or perspective. Instead, the book seeks to emphasize understanding, concepts, and ideas, in a way that is mathematically rigorous, so that the concepts do not feel vague, but not so technical that the mathematics get in the way. The book is intended for undergraduate students in a technical domain such as engineering, computer science, physics, mathematics, and environmental studies

Title  Interconnected Networks 
Author(s)  Garas, Antonios 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XVI, 229 p. 75 illus., 63 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This volume provides an introduction to and overview of the emerging field of interconnected networks which include multi layer or multiplex networks, as well as networks of networks. Such networks present structural and dynamical features quite different from those observed in isolated networks. The presence of links between different networks or layers of a network typically alters the way such interconnected networks behave ??? understanding the role of interconnecting links is therefore a crucial step towards a more accurate description of realworld systems. While examples of such dissimilar properties are becoming more abundant ??? for example regarding diffusion, robustness and competition ??? the root of such differences remains to be elucidated. Each chapter in this topical collection is selfcontained and can be read on its own, thus making it also suitable as reference for experienced researchers wishing to focus on a particular topic

Title  Nonlinear Resonances 
Author(s)  Rajasekar, Shanmuganathan;Sanjuan, Miguel A. F 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XVII, 409 p. 242 illus., 226 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This introductory text presents the basic aspects and most important features of various types of resonances and antiresonances in dynamical systems. In particular, for each resonance, it covers the theoretical concepts, illustrates them with case studies, and reviews the available information on mechanisms, characterization, numerical simulations, experimental realizations, possible quantum analogues, applications and significant advances made over the years. Resonances are one of the most fundamental phenomena exhibited by nonlinear systems and refer to specific realizations of maximum response of a system due to the ability of that system to store and transfer energy received from an external forcing source. Resonances are of particular importance in physical, engineering and biological systems  they can prove to be advantageous in many applications, while leading to instability and even disasters in others. The book is selfcontained, providing the details of mathematical derivations and techniques involved in numerical simulations. Though primarily intended for graduate students, it can also be considered a reference book for any researcher interested in the dynamics of resonant phenomena

Title  NetworkOriented Modeling : Addressing Complexity of Cognitive, Affective and Social Interactions 
Author(s)  Treur, Jan 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XVI, 499 p. 134 illus., 52 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents a new approach that can be applied to complex, integrated individual and social human processes. It provides an alternative means of addressing complexity, better suited for its purpose than and effectively complementing traditional strategies involving isolation and separation assumptions. Networkoriented modeling allows highlevel cognitive, affective and social models in the form of (cyclic) graphs to be constructed, which can be automatically transformed into executable simulation models. The modeling format used makes it easy to take into account theories and findings about complex cognitive and social processes, which often involve dynamics based on interrelating cycles. Accordingly, it makes it possible to address complex phenomena such as the integration of emotions within cognitive processes of all kinds, of internal simulations of the mental processes of others, and of social phenomena such as shared understandings and collective actions. A variety of sample models ??? including those for ownership of actions, fear and dreaming, the integration of emotions in joint decisionmaking based on empathic understanding, and evolving social networks ??? illustrate the potential of the approach. Dedicated software is available to support building models in a conceptual or graphical manner, transforming them into an executable format and performing simulation experiments. The majority of the material presented has been used and positively evaluated by undergraduate and graduate students and researchers in the cognitive, social and AI domains. Given its detailed coverage, the book is ideally suited as an introduction for graduate and undergraduate students in many different multidisciplinary fields involving cognitive, affective, social, biological, and neuroscience domains
