Qualitative Networks from the Author: Elisa Bellotti. How do we interact with people in our everyday life? Who are the people we are connected to? What are the consequences of overlapping social circles and how people deal with the potential emerging conflicts? What are the structural and cultural mechanisms that regulate social worlds? Network science is a scientific approach to the study of network dependencies and associations which tries to answer these and many other questions. This book explores the underlying mechanisms that regulate social life as they are produced, reproduced, modified, and abandoned in the spatial and temporal patterns of interactions. The mixed methods approach, that combines formal network analysis with qualitative materials and statistical tools, shows the importance of contextualising structural mechanisms in their social and cultural environment, and allows overcoming the traditional methodological boundaries that shape the field of social sciences.

Symbolic And Quantitative Approaches To Reasoning With Uncertainty from the Author: Thomas D. Nielsen. The refereed proceedings of the 7th European Conference on Symbolic and Quantitative Approaches to Reasoning with Uncertainty, ECSQARU 2003, held in Aalborg, Denmark in July 2003. The 47 revised full papers presented together with 2 invited survey articles were carefully reviewed and selected for inclusion in the book. The papers are organized in topical sections on foundations of uncertainty concepts, Bayesian networks, algorithms for uncertainty inference, learning, decision graphs, belief functions, fuzzy sets, possibility theory, default reasoning, belief revision and inconsistency handling, logics, and tools.

Qualitative Analysis And Control Of Complex Neural Networks With Delays from the Author: Zhanshan Wang. This book focuses on the stability of the dynamical neural system, synchronization of the coupling neural system and their applications in automation control and electrical engineering. The redefined concept of stability, synchronization and consensus are adopted to provide a better explanation of the complex neural network. Researchers in the fields of dynamical systems, computer science, electrical engineering and mathematics will benefit from the discussions on complex systems. The book will also help readers to better understand the theory behind the control technique and its design.

Uncertainty In Artificial Intelligence from the Author: Kathryn B. Laskey. This volume contains papers accepted for presentation at the Fifteenth Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence (UAI99) held at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Sweden from July 30 through August 1, 1999. This conference continues a 15-year tradition of providing an international forum for exchange of ideas on problems of reasoning, under uncertainty. During those 15 years, UAI has moved from a little-noticed niche at the edge of the field, solidly into the mainstream of artificial intelligence research and practice. Research first presented at UAI has contributed significantly to advances in a number of related fields and has found application in a wide variety of domains. The UAI conference has acquired a reputation for excellence, and the proceedings have become an important reference source for high-quality work in the field.

Planning Scheduling And Constraint Satisfaction from the Author: Luis Castillo. Bringing artificial intelligence planning and scheduling applications into the real world is a hard task that is receiving more attention every day by researchers and practitioners from many fields. In many cases, it requires the integration of several underlying techniques like planning, scheduling, constraint satisfaction, mixed-initiative planning and scheduling, temporal reasoning, knowledge representation, formal models and languages, and technological issues. Most papers included in this book are clear examples on how to integrate several of these techniques. Furthermore, the book also covers many interesting approaches in application areas ranging from industrial job shop to electronic tourism, environmental problems, virtual teaching or space missions. This book also provides powerful techniques that allow to build fully deployable applications to solve real problems and an updated review of many of the most interesting areas of application of these technologies, showing how powerful these technologies are to overcome the expresiveness and efficiency problems of real world problems.

Social Capital Lifelong Learning And The Management Of Place from the Author: Michael Osborne. With contributions from around the world, this book brings together inter-related research from three fields: social capital, place management and lifelong learning regions. Providing valuable insight into the management of place and the development of learning at a regional level, the book presents international research that underpins the development and implementation of policies and practices that improve the quality of living and working circumstances at both local and regional levels. International in scope and at the cutting edge of research into this growing field that links lifelong learning to place, the book will appeal both to academics undertaking research in this burgeoning field and to those involved in lifelong learning at local, national and international level.
