Our Creativity is Defined by Our Imagination Life changes in many ways, at times in mere seconds or over a lifetime. It can be expressed through a few kind words, an artistic painting, and a cure for to a disease or being a role model to the younger generations. We all will leave a piece of ourselves behind to become a piece of history, for everyone to look back and reflect. It's found deep within, a place that we might not even know existed; a place where our thoughts, feelings and past live form of all our deepest wishes. Living life within is a symbol of what we can accomplish throughout our lives and if we only believe in ourselves, we can push everything to the limit. What mark will you leave behind?
Using tools from mathematical kinetic theory and stochastic game theory, this work deals with the modeling of large complex systems in the applied sciences, particularly those comprised of several interacting individuals whose dynamics follow rules determined by some organized, or even "intelligent" ability. Traditionally, methods of mathematical kinetic theory have been applied to model the evolution of large systems of interacting classical or quantum particles. This book, on the other hand, examines the modeling of living systems as opposed to inert systems.
The author develops new mathematical methods and tools-hopefully a "new" mathematics-toward the modeling of living systems. Such tools need to be far more complex than those dealing with systems of inert matter. The first part of the book deals with deriving general evolution equations that can be customized to particular systems of interest in the applied sciences. The second part of the book deals with various models and applications.
The presentation unfolds using the following common approach in each chapter:
* Phenomenological interpretation of the physical system in the context of mathematical modeling
* Derivation of the mathematical model using methods from mathematical kinetic theory for active particles
* Simulations, parameter sensitivity analysis, and critical inspection of the derived model towards validation
* Overview of presented ideas to improve existing models, with special emphasis on applications
Specific topics covered include:
* Modeling of the competition between cells of an aggressive invasive agent and cells of the immune system
* Modeling of vehicular traffic flow
* Modeling of swarms and crowd dynamics in complex geometric environments
* Methodological aspects related to multiscale modeling of large systems viewed as interconnected subsystems
Modeling Complex Living Systems is a valuable resource for applied mathematicians, engineers, physicists, biologists, economists, and graduate students involved in modeling complex social systems and living matter in general.
'I am confident that this work will help many gain a clearer understanding of the economic concepts that are central and essential to the management of marine living resources. The text is extremely clear in its discussion of material and manages to achieve a rich mixture of theory and contemporary practice.' James A. Young, Professor of Applied Marketing,University of Stirling, UK'This book gives a practical overview of marine resources and their management including the financial and economic appraisal of fisheries projects. It will be very useful for students of fisheries and natural resource economics.'Colin Barnes, Cambridge Resource Economics and Cranfield University, UKThis textbook has two main objectives. Firstly, it outlines the problems associated with the management and conservation of marine living resources, with particular attention given to the twin concepts of economic value and sustainability. It demonstrates the contribution that economics can make to understanding these problems as well as helping to frame policies to mitigate them. Secondly, it looks in detail at the key methods that may be used to collect and analyse socio-economic data, oriented towards the information needs of decision makers and stakeholders involved in fisheries management. Together, these two objectives address the question: how does society make the best use of its marine living resources?
Back in the good old days on the fourth floor of the Altbau of Bonn's JuÂ ridicum, Werner Hildenbrand put an end to a debate about a festschrift in honor of an economist on the occasion of his turning 60 with a laconic: "Much too early." Remembering his position five years ago, we did not dare to think about one for him. But now he has turned 65. If consulted, he would most likely still answer: "Much too early." However, he has to take his official reÂ tirement, and we believe that this is the right moment for such an endeavor. No doubt Werner Hildenbrand will not really retire. As professor emeritus, free from the constraints of a rigid teaching schedule and the burden of comÂ mittee meetings, he will be able to indulge his passions. We expect him to pursue, with undiminished enthusiasm, his research, travel, golfing, the arts, and culinary pleasures - escaping real retirement.
