  1. 1. Complex Conflicts Causes and Consequences of Multiparty Civil Wars

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Institutionen för freds- och konfliktforskning, Uppsala universitet

    Author : Nynke Salverda; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; rebel groups; civil war; UN peacekeeping; non-state violence; splintering; fragmentation; formation; dynamics; Peace and Conflict Research; Freds- och konfliktforskning;

    Abstract : Civil wars are inherently complex and often feature a myriad of actors, whose interactions influence the intensity, duration and outcome of the conflict. The larger the number of actors involved in a conflict, the more complex it gets. READ MORE

  2. 2. Complex patterns from physical to social interactions

    University dissertation from Umeå : Fysik

    Author : Andreas Grönlund; Umeå universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Complex networks; collective dynamics; statistical physics; random graphs; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Other physics Statistical physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Övrig fysik Statistisk fysik;

    Abstract : Interactions are what gives us the knowledge of the world around us. Interactions on all levels may fundamentally be seen as an exchange of information and a possible response of the same. Whether it is an electron in an electrical field or a handsome dude in a bar responding to a flirtation---interactions make things happen. READ MORE

  3. 3. Equilibrium and Dynamics on Complex Networkds

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Gino Del Ferraro; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Statistical mechanics; complex networks; spin systems; non equilibrium dynamics; generalized belief propagation; message passing; cavity method; variational approaches; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : Complex networks are an important class of models used to describe the behaviour of a very broad category of systems which appear in different fields of science ranging from physics, biology and statistics to computer science and other disciplines. This set of models includes spin systems on a graph, neural networks, decision networks, spreading disease, financial trade, social networks and all systems which can be represented as interacting agents on some sort of graph architecture.

  4. 4. Modeling Organizational Dynamics Distributions, Networks, Sequences and Mechanisms

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Sociology, Stockholm University

    Author : Hernan Mondani; Stockholms universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; organizational dynamics; social organizing; organizational change; modeling; organizational growth; process stability; labor flow network; employment trajectories; heavy-tailed distributions; complex network analysis; sequence analysis; agent-based modeling; sociophysics; Sociology; sociologi;

    Abstract : The study of how social organizations work, change and develop is central to sociology and to our understanding of the social world and its transformations. At the same time, the underlying principles of organizational dynamics are extremely difficult to investigate. READ MORE

  5. 5. Geospatial Knowledge Discovery using Volunteered Geographic Information a Complex System Perspective

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology
