By Corinna Elsenbroich,David Anzola,Nigel Gilbert

This ebook offers a multi-disciplinary research into extortion rackets with a specific specialise in the buildings of legal companies and their cave in, societal approaches during which extortion rackets try and fail and the affects of bottom-up and top-down methods of battling extortion racketeering. via integrating a number of disciplines and strategies the e-book presents an in depth case research of empirically established computational social technological know-how. it's in line with a wealth of qualitative facts concerning a number of extortion rackets, reminiscent of the Sicilian Mafia, a world funds laundering organization and a predatory extortion case in Germany. Computational tools are used for info research, to aid in operationalising facts to be used in agent-based types and to discover constructions and dynamics of extortion racketeering via simulations. as well as textual info resources, stakeholders and specialists are generally concerned, delivering narratives for research and qualitative validation of versions. The publication provides a scientific software of computational social technological know-how how to the major sector of extortion racketeering. The reader will achieve a deep knowing of extortion rackets, particularly their entrenchment in society and procedures assisting and undermining extortion rackets. additionally lined are computational social technological know-how tools, specifically computationally assisted textual content research and agent-based modelling, and the combination of empirical, theoretical and computational social science.

Modeling Conflict Dynamics with Spatio-temporal Data (SpringerBriefs in Applied Sciences and Technology)

This authored monograph provides using dynamic spatiotemporal modeling instruments for the identity of advanced underlying techniques in clash, comparable to diffusion, relocation, heterogeneous escalation, and volatility. The authors use rules from records, sign processing, and ecology, and supply a predictive framework which will assimilate facts and provides self belief estimates at the predictions.

Synthetic Gene Network: Modeling, Analysis and Robust Design Methods

This e-book develops a rational layout and systematic method of build a gene community with wanted behaviors. in an effort to accomplish that aim, the registry of normal organic components and experimental innovations are brought first and foremost. Then those organic parts are characterised by means of a typical modeling process and picked up within the part libraries, which are successfully reused in engineering artificial gene networks.
