Simulations are widely used in the military for training personnel, analyzing proposed equipment, and rehearsing missions, and these simulations need realistic models of human behavior. This book draws together a wide variety of theoretical and applied research in human behavior modeling that can be considered for use in those simulations. It covers behavior at the individual, unit, and command level. At the individual soldier level, the topics covered include attention, learning, memory, decisionmaking, perception, situation awareness, and planning. At the unit level, the focus is on command and control. The book provides short-, medium-, and long-term goals for research and development of more realistic models of human behavior.
A practical text suitable for an introductory or advanced course in formal methods, this book presents a mathematical approach to modelling and designing systems using an extension of the B formal method: Event-B. Based on the idea of refinement, the author's systematic approach allows the user to construct models gradually and to facilitate a systematic reasoning method by means of proofs. Readers will learn how to build models of programs and, more generally, discrete systems, but this is all done with practice in mind. The numerous examples provided arise from various sources of computer system developments, including sequential programs, concurrent programs and electronic circuits. The book also contains a large number of exercises and projects ranging in difficulty. Each of the examples included in the book has been proved using the Rodin Platform tool set, which is available free for download at www. event-b. org.

The F4F Wildcat was an aircraft of the type of which legends are made of. Approaching obsolescence when it first entered combat, it managed to hold up against seemingly impossible odds. Without the handling performance that made the Japanese Zero so famous, it was well regarded for its ruggedness and firepower and, in the hands of a skilled pilot who understood both its strengths and weaknesses, it was capable of holding its own against the best its opponents had to offer.This book details projects that encompass four variants of the F-4 Wildcat; the F4F-3, FM-2, Martlet III and the Martlet IV. As they were supplied to a wide range of air forces during the war including the RAF, there is a wide range of markings available to a modeller. A number of these are also dealt with in detail over a range of modelling abilities from a beginner's first build to an expert modeller scratch-building extras, all illustrated with full color step-by-step photographs.
The M3 and M5 Stuart were the most significant light tanks of the US Army, as well as many other allied armies, during World War II. They have proved to be popular modelling subjects ever since, largely due to the large number of kits available in many different scales covering a broad selection of the different variants used. The Stuarts were also painted in a wide range of colourful camouflage schemes, reflecting their widespread service, and this adds to their appeal. This title shows a number of different ways to model this popular tank in 1/35 scale, covering construction, painting and weathering the vehicle.
The North American P-51 Mustang had a humble genesis as a British request for single engine escort fighter. The projects in the book take the modeller from the aircraft's beginnings to the ultimate manifestation of this elegant and deadly bird, the F-82 G/H Twin Mustang. The North American P-51 Mustang had a humble genesis as a British request for single engine escort fighter. "Dutch" Kindelberger's North American design team created, in just six months, a prototype that would become, arguably, World War II's most important fighter aircraft. The aircraft was designed around the innovative laminar flow wing, which resulted in a much more efficient flow of air across the top of the wing, thereby reducing drag and increasing range. Modelling is the perfect format to appreciate this revolutionary design feature which created a highly maneuverable plane with excellent range. This book pays attention to the crucial details and methods needed to model the Mustang, at differing skill levels and with unique finishing tips and styles - showing the benefits of scratch built components, all illustrated in a clear concise and easy to use manner.
Tank destroyers were the US Army's response to blitzkrieg, and were based around the concept of mounting a large anti-tank gun on a light, fast moving vehicle. They served in the Mediterranean, Pacific, and North-West Europe theatres, and were also supplied to other Allied armies. These vehicles form an attractive modelling subject; their open turrets provide plenty of opportunity for detail work, as demonstrated here by the author in clear step-by-step instructions. Packed with tips and techniques from a leading modeller and Allied armour expert, this title covers the M10, M18, M36, and M39, and features modelling projects in 1/35th and 1/72nd scale.
Models for Mental Disorder, first published in 1987, anticipated the move towards integration of psychiatric services into multidisciplinary teams (doctor, psychologist, nurse, social worker, etc) and the need to bring together the different philosophies of mental illness. Peter Tyrer has identified four different models of mental disorder that are relevant to clinical practice: the disease, psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioural and social models. Each model is described and reviewed, with reference to case studies and illustrations, to show how it relates to mental health disorders and can be used to interpret and manage these disorders.The book has been widely read and is often used for training purposes so that each professional can understand and appreciate that differences in viewpoint are often a consequence of one or more models being used in a different way rather than a fundamental schism in approach.Since the fourth edition was published in 2005, the disciplines of mental health have moved even closer together with the growth of assertive outreach and more integrated community teams. This, combined with the greater awareness of mental health among users of services, which leads to more penetrating and informed questions at interviews with professionals, has emphasised the need for a wider understanding of these models.Table of contents:Chapter 1 IntroductionChapter 2 The Disease ModelChapter 3 The Psychodynamic ModelChapter 4 The Cognitive-Behavioural ModelChapter 5 The Social ModelChapter 6 Working Models in PracticeAppendix 1 Teaching Exercise: Teaching the ModelsGlossary of Terms
Models for Multidisciplinary Arrangements: A State-By-State Review of Options (APA Practitioner's Toolbox Series)by Will Mcdermott Emory Mcdermott
As a result of the expansion in insurance coverage for mental health care services, a substantial percentage of Americans have third-party insurance for professional psychological services. Increasingly, however, this development is creating significant problems for psychologists as more payers are limiting patients' ability to choose their own therapists as well as the number of treatment sessions that will be covered. This book discusses options for mental health professionals on a state-by-state basis, as well as limitations. Good reference tool for mental health professionals.

In this candid and witty autobiography, Nobel laureate Herbert A. Simon looks at his distinguished and varied career, continually asking himself whether (and how) what he learned as a scientist helps to explain other aspects of his life.A brilliant polymath in an age of increasing specialization, Simon is one of those rare scholars whose work defines fields of inquiry. Crossing disciplinary lines in half a dozen fields, Simon's story encompasses an explosion in the information sciences, the transformation of psychology by the information-processing paradigm, and the use of computer simulation for modeling the behavior of highly complex systems.Simon's theory of bounded rationality led to a Nobel Prize in economics, and his work on building machines that think -- based on the notion that human intelligence is the rule-governed manipulation of symbols -- laid conceptual foundations for the new cognitive science. Subsequently, contrasting metaphors of the maze (Simon's view) and of the mind (neural nets) have dominated the artificial intelligence debate.There is also a warm account of his successful marriage and of an unconsummated love affair, letters to his children, columns, a short story, and political and personal intrigue in academe.
