Network Models In Optimization And Their Applications In Practice by Fred Glover


Original Title: Network Models In Optimization And Their Applications In Practice

Unique in that it focuses on formulation and case studies rather than solutions procedures covering applications for pure, generalized and integer networks, equivalent formulations plus successful techniques of network models. Every chapter contains a simple model which is expanded to handle more complicated developments, a synopsis of existing applications, one or more case studies, at least 20 exercises and invaluable references. An Instructor's Manual presenting detailed solutions to all the problems in the book is available upon request from the Wiley editorial department.

Neural Network Models Of Cognition by J.W. Donahoe


Original Title: Neural Network Models Of Cognition

This internationally authored volume presents major findings, concepts, and methods of behavioral neuroscience coordinated with their simulation via neural networks. A central theme is that biobehaviorally constrained simulations provide a rigorous means to explore the implications of relatively simple processes for the understanding of cognition (complex behavior). Neural networks are held to serve the same function for behavioral neuroscience as population genetics for evolutionary science. The volume is divided into six sections, each of which includes both experimental and simulation research: (1) neurodevelopment and genetic algorithms, (2) synaptic plasticity (LTP), (3) sensory/hippocampal systems, (4) motor systems, (5) plasticity in large neural systems (reinforcement learning), and (6) neural imaging and language. The volume also includes an integrated reference section and a comprehensive index.

A Survey Of Statistical Network Models by Anna Goldenberg


Original Title: A Survey Of Statistical Network Models

"Networks are ubiquitous in science and have become a focal point for discussion in everyday life. Formal statistical models for the analysis of network data have emerged as a major topic of interest in diverse areas of study, and most of these involve a form of graphical representation. Probability models on graphs date back to 1959. Along with empirical studies in social psychology and sociology from the 1960s, these early works generated an active "network community" and a substantial literature in the 1970s. This effort moved into the statistical literature in the late 1970s and 1980s, and the past decade has seen a burgeoning network literature in statistical physics and computer science. The growth of the World Wide Web and the emergence of online "networking communities" such as Facebook, MySpace, and LinkedIn, and a host of more specialized professional network communities has intensified interest in the study of networks and network data. Our goal in this review is to provide the reader with an entry point to this burgeoning literature. We begin with an overview of the historical development of statistical network modeling and then we introduce a number of examples that have been studied in the network literature. Our subsequent discussion focuses on a number of prominent static and dynamic network models and their interconnections. We emphasize formal model descriptions, and pay special attention to the interpretation of parameters and their estimation. We end with a description of some open problems and challenges for machine learning and statistics."--Pages 7-8.

Dynamic Urban Transportation Network Models by Bin Ran


Original Title: Dynamic Urban Transportation Network Models

Intelligent Vehicle-Highway Systems are providing a welcome stimulus to research on dynamic urban transportation network models. This book presents a new generation of models for solving dynamic travel choice problems including traveler's destination choice, mode choice, departure/arrival time choice and route choice. These models are expected to function as off-line travel forecasting and evaluation tools, and eventually as on-line prediction and control models in advanced traveler information and traffic management systems. In addition to a rich set of new formulations and solution algorithms, the book provides a summary of the necessary mathematical background and concludes with a discussion of the requirements for model implementation.

Network Models Of The Diffusion Of Innovations by Thomas W. Valente


Original Title: Network Models Of The Diffusion Of Innovations

This text presents a key to understanding how ideas, products and opinions take off and spread throughout society - referred to as the diffusion of innovation - and provides a means to estimate how fast or slow that spread occurs. The diffusion of innovations occurs among individuals in a social system, and the pattern of communications among these individuals is a social network. The network determines how quickly innovations diffuse and the timing of each individual's adoption. The book thus analyses how social networks structure the diffusion of innovation.

Network Models For Organizations by Pedro Pablo Ramos


Original Title: Network Models For Organizations

How can companies become more flexible and better connected, internally and externally? How can organization structure models be made more flexible to adapt to future strategies? How can a company evolve to meet future market changes in the business environment? If a company cannot adapt to changing environments in the future, it will suffer and decline. The question is not whether your company's structure is suitable for the needs of today, but whether it will still be suitable tomorrow. Traditional company models are rigid and designed for permanency, often making it difficult for future growth and strategies to succeed. The key to business success is flexibility, in structures, relationships and communication. All companies are based upon networks. These can be well connected or badly connected, both internally in terms of people, processes, workflows and strategies, and externally concerning the market, customers and suppliers. This innovative new book from Pedro Pablo Ramos shows organizations how to understand and improve their organizational networks, and explains how different network models can be implemented that encourage and promote flexibility within organizations. Understanding that your company is built upon networks will improve connections and communication. Organizations must evaluate what type of networks their structures are built upon and how suitable these are for future growth and strategy. Your business's future success will depend on your network being both well-designed and well-connected. With a Foreword by Stephen R. Covey, bestselling author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

Network Models And Optimization by Mitsuo Gen


Original Title: Network Models And Optimization

Network models are critical tools in business, management, science and industry. “Network Models and Optimization” presents an insightful, comprehensive, and up-to-date treatment of multiple objective genetic algorithms to network optimization problems in many disciplines, such as engineering, computer science, operations research, transportation, telecommunication, and manufacturing. The book extensively covers algorithms and applications, including shortest path problems, minimum cost flow problems, maximum flow problems, minimum spanning tree problems, traveling salesman and postman problems, location-allocation problems, project scheduling problems, multistage-based scheduling problems, logistics network problems, communication network problem, and network models in assembly line balancing problems, and airline fleet assignment problems. The book can be used both as a student textbook and as a professional reference for practitioners who use network optimization methods to model and solve problems.
