Complex systems modeling for obesity research

Ross A Hammond
2009 Preventing Chronic Disease  
complex adaptive system.  ...  It argues that the obesity epidemic is driven by such a system and that lessons and techniques from the field of complexity science can help inform both scientific study of obesity and effective policies  ...  A wide array of techniques for modeling exist and are used for many different purposes in many different fields.  ...

Resilience Thinking: Integrating Resilience, Adaptability and Transformability

Carl Folke, Stephen R. Carpenter, Brian Walker, Marten Scheffer, Terry Chapin, Johan Rockström
2010 Ecology and Society  
Resilience in this context is the capacity of a SES to continually change and adapt yet remain within critical thresholds. Adaptability is part of resilience.  ...  The capacity to transform at smaller scales draws on resilience from multiple scales, making use of crises as windows of opportunity for novelty and innovation, and recombining sources of experience and  ...  In some fields the term resilience has been technically used in a narrow sense to refer to the return rate to equilibrium upon a perturbation (called engineering resilience by Holling in 1996) .  ...

Organizing Far from Equilibrium: Nonlinear Change in Organizational Fields

Alan D. Meyer, Vibha Gaba, Kenneth A. Colwell
2005 Organization science (Providence, R.I.)  
We urge our colleagues to transcend the general linear model, and embrace ideas like field configuration, complex adaptive systems, self-organizing networks, and autocatalytic feedback.  ...  Nevertheless, equilibrium and linearity are assumptions of social theory, not facts of social life.  ...  However, at least in oscillating fields, the central dynamic of community-level change is not adaptation toward optimal fitness, but a more complex coevolutionary process.  ...

Perspective: Complexity Theory and Organization Science

Philip Anderson
1999 Organization science (Providence, R.I.)  
Complex adaptive system models represent a genuinely new way of simplifying the complex.  ...  Applying complex adaptive systems models to strategic management leads to an emphasis on building systems that can rapidly evolve effective adaptive solutions.  ...  The third step would be to make novel predictions based on the model that move beyond received theory.  ...

Advancing Multilevel Research Design

Steve W. J. Kozlowski, Georgia T. Chao, James A. Grand, Michael T. Braun, Goran Kuljanin
2013 Organizational Research Methods  
We conclude with a set of recommendations for advancing multilevel research on emergent phenomena in teams and organizations. Kozlowski et al.  ...  We argue that direct quantitative approaches, largely represented by computational modeling / agent-based simulation, have much to offer with respect to illuminating the mechanisms of emergence as a dynamic  ...  Such a model could be adapted to explore how STMM's and TM systems react to and absorb the "shock" of members learning to make use of novel information.  ...

A Survey of Artificial Immune System Based Intrusion Detection

Hua Yang, Tao Li, Xinlei Hu, Feng Wang, Yang Zou
2014 The Scientific World Journal  
There is a lot of literature about ID, but this study only surveys the approaches based on Artificial Immune System (AIS). The use of AIS in ID is an appealing concept in current techniques.  ...  This paper summarizes AIS based ID methods from a new view point; moreover, a framework is proposed for the design of AIS based ID Systems (IDSs).  ...  Garrett introduced an adaptive CSA as a modification of CLONALG [51] . CSA has always been used as strategy towards optimization and pattern recognition [52] .  ...

Creating Agent-Based Energy Transition Management Models That Can Uncover Profitable Pathways to Climate Change Mitigation

Auke Hoekstra, Maarten Steinbuch, Geert Verbong
2017 Complexity  
A review of modelling techniques shows that equilibrium models are unsuitable and that system dynamics and discrete event simulation are too limited.  ...  Technology should be represented as a detailed and heterogeneous portfolio that can develop in a bottom-up manner, using endogenous feedback loops.  ...  Multilevel Agent-Based Models. Finally transition management models need to be multilevel.  ...
