Markov Chain Aggregation for Agent-Based Models by Sven Banisch

By Sven Banisch

This self-contained textual content develops a Markov chain procedure that makes the rigorous research of a category of microscopic versions that designate the dynamics of advanced platforms on the person point attainable. It provides a common framework of aggregation in agent-based and comparable computational types, one that uses lumpability and knowledge idea for you to hyperlink the micro and macro degrees of commentary. the start line is a microscopic Markov chain description of the dynamical procedure in whole correspondence with the dynamical habit of the agent-based version (ABM), that is bought via contemplating the set of all attainable agent configurations because the nation house of an enormous Markov chain. An specific formal illustration of a ensuing “micro-chain” together with microscopic transition charges is derived for a category of versions by utilizing the random mapping illustration of a Markov method. the kind of chance distribution used to enforce the stochastic a part of the version, which defines the updating rule and governs the dynamics at a Markovian point, performs an important half within the research of “voter-like” types utilized in inhabitants genetics, evolutionary video game idea and social dynamics.

By Livija Cveticanin

This textbook offers the movement of natural nonlinear oscillatory platforms and diverse resolution strategies which offer the approximate options of the powerful nonlinear oscillator equations. It offers the author’s original method for the analytical resolution approach of the natural nonlinear oscillator approach. After an creation, the actual rationalization of the natural nonlinearity and of the natural nonlinear oscillator is given. The analytical resolution at no cost and compelled vibrations of the one-degree-of-freedom powerful nonlinear method with consistent and time variable parameters is taken into account. during this moment version of the ebook, the variety of approximate fixing approaches for robust nonlinear oscillators is enlarged and quite a few tactics for fixing unfastened robust nonlinear oscillators is advised. a style for blunders estimation is additionally given that's appropriate to check the precise and approximate solutions.

Safety-II in Practice: Developing the Resilience Potentials by Erik Hollnagel

By Erik Hollnagel

Safety-I is outlined because the freedom from unacceptable damage. the aim of conventional safeguard administration is as a result to discover how you can make sure this ‘freedom’. yet as socio-technical structures gradually became greater and not more tractable, this has develop into tougher to do. Resilience engineering mentioned from the very starting that resilient functionality - an organisation’s skill to operate as required lower than anticipated and unforeseen stipulations alike – required greater than the prevention of incidents and injuries. This built right into a new interpretation of safeguard (Safety-II) and for that reason a brand new kind of security management.

Safety-II adjustments safeguard administration from protecting protection and a spotlight on how issues can get it wrong, to effective security and attention on how issues can and do pass good. For Safety-II, the purpose is not only the removing of dangers and the prevention of mess ups and malfunctions but in addition how top to advance an organisation’s potentials for resilient functionality – how it responds, screens, learns, and anticipates. That calls for versions and strategies that transcend the Safety-I toolbox. This e-book introduces a complete process for the administration of Safety-II, known as the Resilience evaluation Grid (RAG). It explains the rules of the RAG and the way it may be used to boost the resilience potentials. The RAG presents 4 units of diagnostic and formative questions that may be adapted to any business enterprise. The questions are in response to the rules of resilience engineering and sponsored through sensible adventure from a number of domains.

Safety-II in perform is for either the security expert and educational reader. For the professional, it provides a doable strategy (RAG) for the administration of Safety-II, with a confirmed tune list. for tutorial and scholar readers, the e-book is a concise and functional presentation of resilience engineering.
