Diplomacy games : formal models and international negotiations by Rudolf Avenhaus( )

26 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, leading experts in international negotiations present formal models of conflict resolution and international negotiations. Besides the description of different models and approaches, the book answers three questions: How can the abstract concepts and results of rational choice theorists be made more understandable and plausible to political and social scientists not trained to work with formal models? What can be done to encourage practitioners to use not only simple but also mathematically advanced approaches in their analysis of real world negotiation problems? How can practitioners (e.g., politicians and diplomats) become interested in, take into account, and apply formal models of their more important problems?
Verifying treaty compliance : limiting weapons of mass destruction and monitoring Kyoto Protocol provisions by Rudolf Avenhaus( )

21 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

International treaties requiring binding commitments on the part of the member states and appropriate compliance verification by an international authority constitute a primary assurance against risks posed by the spread of sensitive technologies that can be used to produce weapons of mass destruction or risks posed by climate changes due to global human activities. This book presents in an interdisciplinary manner experts' analysesand views of existing verification systems: It gives guidelines and advice for the improvement of those systems as well as for new challenges in the field
Negotiated risks : international talks on hazardous issues by Gunnar Sjöstedt( )

15 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book fills a major gap in the risk literature, as it brings together two research strands: risks, to which IIASA's research programs have contributed significantly over the years, culminating in the Risk and Vulnerability Program, and international negotiations, on which there is an abundance of published work, much of it resulting from the work of IIASA's Processes of International Negotiations Program." "Throughout the book, it is pointed out that there are actor-driven risks, namely those posed by international negotiations themselves, and issue-driven risks which are caused by large-scale human activities. In fact, negotiated risks deal with some of the most serious risks facing humanity: climate change, nuclear activities, and weapons of mass destruction." "The book contains both scientific analyses on the nature of internationally negotiated risks and analyses of concrete risks, both of which are of immense practical relevance in the larger context of international negotiations."--Jacket
Compliance quantified by Rudolf Avenhaus( Book )

17 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

International agreements, such as those governing arms control or the environment, virtually always require some degree of verification of information, in order that compliance can be established. To ensure that the verification process can be regarded as efficient, effective and impartial, it is important to have a mathematical model of it. One can be derived by applying methods from statistics and the theory of non-cooperative games, developed in part by John Nash, who received a Nobel prize in 1994 for his work. The methods permit the development of rational verification strategies, as well as such fundamental concepts as guaranteed probability of detection, timeliness of inspections and the deterrence of illegal activity. In this 1996 book, the required theory is introduced gradually in the context of specific real-world examples. The only prerequisites are simple calculus and statistics, so the book should be accessible to a broad range of scientists and non-scientists, in industrial, academic or governmental environments
Quantitative assessment in arms control : mathematical modeling and simulation in the analysis of arms control problems by Rudolf Avenhaus( Book )

11 editions published in 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book originates in a series of contributions to the 1983 Systems Science Seminar at the Computer Science Department of the German Armed Forces University Munich. Under the topic "Quantita­ tive Approaches to Arms Control" that seminar attempted to review the present state-of-the-art of systems analysis and numerate meth­ ods in arms control. To this end, the editors invited a number of experts from Europe, the United St~tes and Canada to share and dis­ cuss their views and assessments with the faculty and upper class computer science students of the university as well as numerous guests from the defence community and the interested public. In three parts, this book presents a selection of partly re­ vised and somewhat extended versions of the seminar presentations followed, in most cases, by brief summaries of the transcripts of the respective discussions. In addition to an introduction by the editors, part I contains six papers on the present state and prob­ lems of arms control with emphasis on START (Strategic Arms Re­ duction Talks), INF (Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces negotia­ tions), and MBFR (Mutually Balanced Force Reduction talks). The seven contributions to part II are devoted to mathematical models of arms competition and quantitative approaches to force balance assessment of both, the static and dynamic variety. Part III pre­ sents five papers which address technical and operational aspects and legal implications of arms control negotiations and verifica­ tion
Safeguards systems analysis : with applications to nuclear material safeguards and other inspection problems by Rudolf Avenhaus( Book )

11 editions published between 1986 and 2013 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adequate verification is the key issue not only in today's arms control, arms limitation, and disarmament regimes, but also in less spectacular areas like auditing in economics or control of environmental pollution. Statistical methodologies and system analytical approaches are the tools developed over the past decades for quantifying those components of adequate verification which are quantifiable, i. e., numbers, inventories, mass transfers, etc., together with their uncertainties. In his book Safeguards Systems AnalyƯ sis, Professor Rudolf Avenhaus condenses the experience and expertise he has gained over the past 20 years, when his work was mainly related to the development of the IAEA's system for safeguarding nuclear materials, to system analytical studies at IIASA in the field of future energy requirements and their risks, and to the application of statistical techniques to arms control. The result is a unified and up-to-date presentation and analysis of the quantitative aspects of safeguards systems, and the application of the more important findings to practical problems. International Nuclear Material Safeguards, by far the most advanced verification system in the field of arms limitation, is used as the main field of application for the game theoretical analysis, material accountancy theory, and the theory on verification of material accounting data developed in the first four chapters

Modelling and Analysis in Arms Control by Rudolf Avenhaus( )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the results of an international workshop on Modelling and Analysis of Arms Control Problems held in Spitzingsee near Munich in October 1985 under the joint sponsorship of NATO's Scientific Affairs Division and the Volkswagen Foundation. The idea for this workshop evolved in 1983, as a consequence of discussions in the annual Systems Science Seminar at the Computer Science Department of the Federal Armed Forces University ~1unich on the topic of Quantitative Assessment in Arms Control 1) • There was wide agreement among the contribu­ tors to that seminar and its participants that those efforts to assess the potential contributions of systems and decision sciences, as well as systems analysis and"mathematical modelling, to arms control issues should be ex­ panded and a forum should be provided for this activity. It was further agreed that such a forum should include political scientists and policy analysts working in the area of arms control
Game equilibrium models by Reinhard Selten( Book )

8 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The four volumes of Game Equilibrium Models present applications of non-cooperative game theory. Problems of strategic interaction arising in biology, economics, political science and the social sciences in general are treated in 42 papers on a wide variety of subjects. Internationally known authors with backgrounds in various disciplines have contributed original research. The reader finds innovative modelling combined with advanced methods of analysis. The four volumes are the outcome of a research year at the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies of the University of Bielefeld. The close interaction of an international interdisciplinary group of researchers has produced an unusual collection of remarkable results of great interest for everybody who wants to be informed on the scope, potential, and future direction of work in applied game theory. Volume IV Social and Political Interaction contains game equilibrium models focussing on social and political interaction within communities or states or between states, i.e. national and international social and political interaction. Specific aspects of those interactions are modelled as non-cooperative games and their equilibria are analysed
