Control Theory for Humans: Quantitative Approaches To Modeling Performance

Control Theory for Humans: Quantitative Approaches To Modeling PerformanceThis textbook provides a tutorial introduction to behavioral applications of control theory. Control theory describes the information one should be sensitive to and the pattern of influence that one should exert on a dynamic system in order to achieve a goal. As such, it is applicable to various forms of dynamic behavior. The book primarily deals with manual control (e.g., moving the cursor on a computer screen, lifting an object, hitting a ball, driving a car), both as a substantive area of stu…

The Death of Money: The Coming Collapse of the International Monetary System

The Death of Money: The Coming Collapse of the International Monetary System“The next financial collapse will resemble nothing in history. . . . Deciding upon the best course to follow will require comprehending a minefield of risks, while poised at a crossroads, pondering the death of the dollar.”The international monetary system has collapsed three times in the past hundred years, in 1914, 1939, and 1971. Each collapse was followed by a period of tumult: war, civil unrest, or significant damage to the stability of the global economy. Now James Rickards, t…

Quantitative Intelligence Analysis: Applied Analytic Models, Simulations, and Games (Security and Professional Intelligence Education Series)

Quantitative Intelligence Analysis: Applied Analytic Models, Simulations, and Games (Security and Professional Intelligence Education Series)Quantitative Intelligence Analysis describes the model-based method of intelligence analysis that represents the analyst’s mental models of a subject, as well as the analyst’s reasoning process exposing what the analyst believes about the subject, and how they arrived at those beliefs and converged on analytic judgments. It includes:Specific methods of explicitly representing the analyst’s mental models as computational models;dynamic simulations and interactive analytic games;the structur…

Towards the Future of Fuzzy Logic (Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing)

Towards the Future of Fuzzy Logic (Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing)This book provides readers with a snapshot of the state-of-the art in fuzzy logic. Throughout the chapters, key theories developed in the last fifty years as well as important applications to practical problems are presented and discussed from different perspectives, as the authors hail from different disciplines and therefore use fuzzy logic for different purposes.  The book aims at showing how fuzzy logic has evolved since the first theory formulation by Lotfi A. Zadeh in his seminal paper on…
