Network Analysis Literacy: A Practical Approach to the by Katharina A. Zweig

By Katharina A. Zweig

This book presents a point of view of community research as a tool to find and quantify major buildings within the interplay styles among differing types of  entities. furthermore, community research presents the fundamental capability to narrate those buildings to homes of the entities. It has confirmed itself to be helpful for the research of organic and social networks, but in addition for networks describing complicated platforms in economic system, psychology, geography, and numerous different fields. this day, community research programs within the open-source platform R and different open-source software program tasks allow scientists from all fields to fast observe community analytic how to their facts units. Altogether, those functions provide one of these wealth of community analytic tools that it may be overwhelming for somebody simply coming into this box. This booklet offers a street map via this jungle of community analytic tools, bargains suggestion on tips on how to decide the easiest approach for a given community analytic undertaking, and the way to prevent universal pitfalls. It introduces the equipment that are quite often used to research advanced networks, e.g., varied international community measures, varieties of random graph types, centrality indices, and networks motifs. as well as introducing those equipment, the central focus is on community research literacy – the competence to determine whilst to take advantage of which of those tools for which kind of query. moreover, the ebook intends to extend the reader's competence to learn unique literature on community research by means of delivering a word list and extensive translation of formal notation and mathematical symbols in daily speech. various elements of community research literacy – figuring out formal definitions, programming initiatives, or the research of structural measures and their interpretation – are deepened in a number of workouts with supplied options. this article is a superb, if no longer the easiest start line for all scientists who are looking to harness the facility of community research for his or her box of expertise.

Computational Analysis of Terrorist Groups: Lashkar-e-Taiba by V.S. Subrahmanian,Aaron Mannes,Amy Sliva,Jana Shakarian,John

By V.S. Subrahmanian,Aaron Mannes,Amy Sliva,Jana Shakarian,John P. Dickerson

Computational research of Terrorist teams: Lashkar-e-Taiba provides an in-depth examine internet intelligence, and the way complicated arithmetic and glossy computing expertise can effect the insights we have now on terrorist teams. This e-book basically focuses  on one recognized terrorist workforce often called Lashkar-e-Taiba (or LeT), and  the way it operates. After 10 years of counter Al Qaeda operations,  allow is taken into account by way of many within the counter-terrorism neighborhood to be an excellent better risk to the U.S. and global peace than Al Qaeda.

Computational research of  Terrorist teams: Lashkar-e-Taiba is the 1st booklet that demonstrates the way to use glossy computational research strategies together with equipment for “big info” analysis.  This e-book provides find out how to quantify either the surroundings during which enable function, and  the activities it took over a 20-year interval, and characterize it as a relational database desk. This desk is then mined utilizing subtle facts mining algorithms as a way to achieve targeted, mathematical, computational and statistical insights into allow and its operations. This ebook additionally presents an in depth  historical past of  Lashkar-e-Taiba according to vast research performed by way of  utilizing open resource info and public statements. each one bankruptcy encompasses a case research, in addition to  a slide describing the main effects that are on hand at the authors’ net sites.

Computational research of  Terrorist teams: Lashkar-e-Taiba is designed for a certified marketplace composed of  executive or army employees, researchers  and machine scientists operating within the net intelligence box. Advanced-level scholars in laptop technology also will locate this precious as a reference book.

Mobility Management in LTE Heterogeneous Networks by Abhay Karandikar,Nadeem Akhtar,Mahima Mehta

By Abhay Karandikar,Nadeem Akhtar,Mahima Mehta

This publication is the 1st of its sort, compiling info at the long term Evolution (LTE) criteria, that are greater to deal with new mobility-related demanding situations in Heterogeneous Networks (HetNets). It identifies the comparable demanding situations and discusses recommendations and the simulation method for modeling HetNet mobility – state of the art details that used to be formerly available basically within the kind of 3GPP necessities and files, and examine papers. The e-book experiences the present LTE mobility framework and discusses many of the adjustments for boosting mobility administration in HetNets. It describes the dimension methods, handover (HO) mechanisms and HO success/failure situations.

HetNets are meant to supply very excessive spectral efficiency whereas making sure seamless insurance by means of deploying low-power nodes in the umbrella macrocell community. whereas mobility administration in homogeneous networks is definitely understood, LTE criteria are being more suitable to deal with the HetNet-specific mobility administration demanding situations emerging.

The publication addresses those facets in a succinct and comprehensible shape, providing a important source for researchers and execs operating within the quarter of HetNet mobility and a prepared reference advisor for practising engineers and researchers.

Text Mining: Predictive Methods for Analyzing Unstructured by Sholom M. Weiss,Nitin Indurkhya,Tong Zhang,Fred Damerau

By Sholom M. Weiss,Nitin Indurkhya,Tong Zhang,Fred Damerau

facts mining is a mature expertise. The prediction challenge, searching for predictive styles in facts, has been broadly studied. powerful me- ods can be found to the practitioner. those tools technique based numerical info, the place uniform measurements are taken over a pattern of knowledge. textual content is usually defined as unstructured info. So, it is going to look, textual content and numerical info are varied, requiring diverse tools. Or are they? In our view, a prediction challenge may be solved through an analogous equipment, even if the knowledge are dependent - merical measurements or unstructured textual content. textual content and files could be remodeled into measured values, resembling the presence or absence of phrases, and an analogous tools that experience confirmed profitable for pred- tive information mining should be utilized to textual content. but, there are key ameliorations. overview ideas has to be tailored to the chronological order of ebook and to replacement measures of mistakes. as the information are files, extra really good analytical equipment should be most well liked for textual content. additionally, the equipment has to be modi?ed to house very excessive dimensions: tens of hundreds of thousands of phrases and files. nonetheless, the imperative subject matters are similar.

Multiagent Scheduling: Models and Algorithms by Alessandro Agnetis,Jean-Charles Billaut,Stanislaw

By Alessandro Agnetis,Jean-Charles Billaut,Stanislaw Gawiejnowicz,Dario Pacciarelli,Ameur Soukhal

Scheduling idea has got a transforming into curiosity seeing that its origins within the moment half the twentieth century. constructed in the beginning for the examine of scheduling issues of a unmarried aim, the speculation has been lately prolonged to difficulties concerning a number of standards. notwithstanding, this extension has nonetheless left a niche among the classical multi-criteria techniques and a few real-life difficulties within which now not all jobs give a contribution to the assessment of every criterion.

In this ebook, we shut this hole by way of featuring and constructing multi-agent scheduling types within which subsets of jobs sharing a similar assets are evaluated by means of assorted standards. a number of eventualities are brought, reckoning on the definition and the intersection constitution of the activity subsets. Complexity effects, approximation schemes, heuristics and specified algorithms are mentioned for single-machine and parallel-machine scheduling environments. Definitions and algorithms are illustrated with assistance from examples and figures.
