This quantity is a post-conference ebook of the 4th global Congress on Social Simulation (WCSS), with contents chosen from one of the eighty papers initially awarded on the convention. WCSS is a biennial occasion, together geared up via 3 clinical groups in computational social technology, particularly, the Pacific-Asian organization for Agent-Based technique in Social structures Sciences (PAAA), the ecu Social Simulation organization (ESSA), and the Computational Social technology Society of the Americas (CSSSA). it really is, consequently, at present the main favorite convention within the sector of agent-based social simulation. The papers chosen for this quantity provide a holistic view of the present improvement of social simulation, indicating the instructions for destiny learn and developing an incredible archival record and milestone within the historical past of computational social technological know-how. particularly, the papers incorporated the following hide great growth in man made monetary markets, macroeconomic forecasting, offer chain administration, financial institution networks, social networks, city making plans, social norms and workforce formation, cross-cultural experiences, political celebration pageant, balloting habit, computational demography, computational anthropology, evolution of languages, public future health and epidemics, AIDS, defense and terrorism, methodological and epistemological concerns, empirical-based agent-based modeling, modeling of experimental social technological know-how, gaming simulation, cognitive brokers, and participatory simulation. additionally, pioneering reports in a few new examine parts, comparable to the theoretical foundations of social simulation and specific social technological know-how, are also incorporated within the volume.

Aftermath: Following the Bloodshed of America's Wars in the Muslim World

Nir Rosen’s Aftermath, a unprecedented feat of reporting, follows the contagious unfold of radicalism and sectarian violence that the U. S. invasion of Iraq and the consequent civil conflict have unleashed within the Muslim world.


Rosen—who the Weekly commonplace as soon as bitterly complained has “great entry to the Baathists and jihadists who make up the Iraqi insurgency”— has spent approximately a decade between warriors and militants who've been not easy American energy within the Muslim international. In Aftermath, he tells their tale, exhibiting the opposite facet of the U. S. battle on terror, touring from the battle-scarred streets of Baghdad to the alleys, villages, refugee camps, mosques, and killing grounds of Jordan, Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, and eventually Afghanistan, the place Rosen has a terrifying come upon with the Taliban as their “guest,” and witnesses the recent Obama surge fizzling in southern Afghanistan.

Rosen used to be one of many few Westerners to enterprise contained in the mosques of Baghdad to witness the 1st stirrings of sectarian hatred within the months after the U. S. invasion. He indicates how guns, strategies, and sectarian principles from the civil conflict in Iraq penetrated neighboring nations and threatened their balance, specially Lebanon and Jordan, the place new jihadist teams mushroomed. furthermore, he exhibits that the unfold of violence on the highway point is usually the end result of particular guidelines hatched in Washington, D. C. Rosen bargains a seminal and provocative account of the surge, instructed from the viewpoint of U. S. troops at the floor, the Iraqi safeguard forces, Shiite militias and Sunni insurgents that have been either allies and adversaries. He additionally tells the tale of what occurred to those militias when they outlived their usefulness to the Americans.

Aftermath is either a special own heritage and an unsparing account of what the US has wrought in Iraq and the sector. the result's a hair- elevating, 360-degree view of the trendy battlefield its consequent humanitarian disaster, and the truth of counterinsurgency.


Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock

Die rhetorisch orientierte Dichtung Klopstocks. Wie kaum ein anderer Schriftsteller im 18. Jahrhundert verdeutlicht Klopstock die Notwendigkeit eines komplexen Literaturgeschichtsmodells. Seine severe Stellung forderte zum conversation heraus und spornte zu Höchstleistungen an. In diesem Band geht es um die individual, das Werk Klopstocks, den conversation mit den Zeitgenossen, die Rezeption durch spätere Dichter und das literaturgeschichtliche Klopstock-Bild.

They found that the content of messages might possibly be used to explain stock returns, though the number of messages could not. However, they pointed out that the BMB cannot explain all residual returns. They classified the content of messages by using only one dimension such as bullishbearish. Previous studies found that text data can be classified in several dimensions. Similarly, messages on BBSs might be classified in dimensions other than bullishbearish. The purpose of our research is thus to develop a new factor based on BBSs, instead of the BMB, to explain stock returns.

7) kD1 Although it seems unrealistic to assume that readers choose blogs based on the advertising of their favorite products, product congruence could be a good proxy for similarity in taste for consumption. In addition, if affiliates are able to find an ad mix that is most congruent to the target readers’ product preferences, the resulting links will maximize this congruence. In that sense, this congruence could measure the “optimality” of the affiliates’ actions. The links maximizing topic congruence and product congruence are, respectively, extremes of a continuum of the possible links between the agents.

If a PCS correlated with a stock return, the principal component analysis might be able to explain the return. Moreover, if the PCS did not correlate with bullishness, it might be a candidate for a new factor, because the BMB is based on bullishness. 1 Definition of portfolio 9 Portfolio Definition PF1 PF2 PF3 PF4 PF5 PFX First quintile of the PCSs Second quintile of the PCSs Third quintile of the PCSs Fourth quintile of the PCSs Fifth quintile of the PCSs None of messages According to Maruyama et al.
