TitleApplications of Systems Thinking and Soft Operations Research in Managing Complexity : From Problem Framing to Problem Solving
Author(s)Masys, Anthony J
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2016.
DescriptionVIII, 322 p. 77 illus., 61 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book captures current trends and developments in the field of systems thinking and soft operations research which can be applied to solve today's??problems of dynamic complexity and interdependency. Such ???wicked problems??? and messes are seemingly intractable problems characterized as value-laden, ambiguous, and unstable, that resist being tamed by classical problem solving. Actions and interventions associated with this complex problem space can have highly unpredictable and unintended consequences. Examples of such complex problems include health care reform, global climate change, transnational serious and organized crime, terrorism, homeland security, human security, disaster management, and humanitarian aid. Moving towards the development of solutions to these complex problem spaces depends on the lens we use to examine them and how we frame the problem. It will be shown that systems thinking and soft operations research has had great success in contributing to the management of complexity.??

Author(s)Payne, Diane;Elkink, Johan A;Friel, Nial;Grund, Thomas U;Hochstrasser, Tamara;Lucas, Pablo;Ottewill, Adrian
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2019.
DescriptionVIII, 218 p. 58 illus., 37 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract Note???Social Simulation for a Digital Society??? provides a cross-section of state-of-the-art research in social simulation and computational social science. With the availability of big data and faster computing power, the social sciences are undergoing a tremendous transformation. Research in computational social sciences has received considerable attention in the last few years, with advances in a wide range of methodologies and applications. Areas of application of computational methods range from the study of opinion and information dynamics in social networks, the formal modeling of resource use, the study of social conflict and cooperation to the development of cognitive models for social simulation and many more. This volume is based on the Social Simulation Conference of 2017 in Dublin and includes applications from across the social sciences, providing the reader with a demonstration of the highly versatile research in social simulation, with a particular focus on public policy relevance in a digital society. Chapters in the book include contributions to the methodology of simulation-based research, theoretical and philosophical considerations, as well as applied work. This book will appeal to students and researchers in the field.

TitleNetworks of Learning Automata : Techniques for Online Stochastic Optimization
Author(s)Thathachar, M.A.L;Sastry, P.S
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer US, 2004.
DescriptionXV, 268 p : online resource
Abstract NoteNetworks of Learning Automata: Techniques for Online Stochastic Optimization is a comprehensive account of learning automata models with emphasis on multiautomata systems. It considers synthesis of complex learning structures from simple building blocks and uses stochastic algorithms for refining probabilities of selecting actions. Mathematical analysis of the behavior of games and feedforward networks is provided. Algorithms considered here can be used for online optimization of systems based on noisy measurements of performance index. Also, algorithms that assure convergence to the global optimum are presented. Parallel operation of automata systems for improving speed of convergence is described. The authors also include extensive discussion of how learning automata solutions can be constructed in a variety of applications

TitleTraffic Flow Dynamics : Data, Models and Simulation
Author(s)Treiber, Martin;Kesting, Arne
PublicationBerlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2013.
DescriptionXIV, 506 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThis textbook provides a comprehensive and instructive coverage of vehicular traffic flow dynamics and modeling. It makes this fascinating interdisciplinary topic, which to date was only documented in parts by specialized monographs, accessible to a broad readership. Numerous figures and problems with solutions help the reader to quickly understand and practice the presented concepts. This book is targeted at students of physics and traffic engineering and, more generally, also at students and professionals in computer science, mathematics, and interdisciplinary topics. It also offers material for project work in programming and simulation at college and university level. The main part, after presenting different categories of traffic data, is devoted to a mathematical description of the dynamics of traffic flow, covering macroscopic models which describe traffic in terms of density, as well as microscopic many-particle models in which each particle corresponds to a vehicle and its driver.??Focus chapters on traffic instabilities and model calibration/validation present these topics in a novel and systematic way.????Finally, the theoretical framework is shown at work in selected applications such as traffic-state and travel-time estimation, intelligent transportation systems, traffic operations management, and a detailed physics-based model for fuel consumption and emissions

TitleBetter Decision Making in Complex, Dynamic Tasks : Training with Human-Facilitated Interactive Learning Environments
Author(s)Qudrat-Ullah, Hassan
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2015.
DescriptionXX, 252 p. 69 illus., 59 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book describes interactive learning environments (ILEs) and their underlying concepts. It explains how ILEs can be used to improve the decision-making process and how these improvements can be empirically verified. The objective of this book is to enhance our understanding of and to gain insights into the process by which human facilitated ILEs are effectively designed and used in improving users??? decision making in complex, dynamic tasks. This book is divided into four major parts. Part I serves as an introduction to the importance and complexity of decision making in dynamic tasks. Part II provides background material, drawing upon relevant literature, for the development of an integrated process model on the effectiveness of human facilitated ILEs in improving decision making in dynamic tasks. Part III focuses on the design, development, and application of FishBankILE in laboratory experiments to gather empirical evidence for the validity of the process model. Finally, part IV presents a comprehensive analysis of the gathered data to illustrate the lessons to be learned. Better Decision Making in Complex, Dynamic Tasks will be useful for managers and practitioners, researchers, and students of dynamic decision making. Praise for Better Decision Making in Complex, Dynamic Tasks: "...rich in content, full with unique insights, and a self-sufficient volume on the design, development and application of system dynamics based simulations that are implemented as interactive learning environments (ILEs). Practitioners and researchers interested in seeking evidence for the efficacy of ILEs??? use in decision-making will find this book a must read."
