We introduce the notion of strategic uncertainty for bound-edly rational, non-myopic agents as an analog to the equilibrium selection problem in classical game theory. We then motivate the need for and feasibility of addressing strategic uncertainty and present an algorithm that produces decisions that are robust to it. Finally, we show how agents'(More)
In this paper we introduce a workflow for multiagent modeling that relies on piecemeal calibration to verify the model, and discuss how modelers can organize this workflow to accelerate model building, improve the quality and technical soundness of the final model and be able to attribute dynamics of model outputs to causal mechanisms represented in the(More)
have partnered to build analytical tools for border security that incorporate social, cultural, behavioral and organizational aspects of interactions among border security forces, smugglers and the population and represent integrated technology architectures made up of fixed and mobile sensor and surveillance networks. These tools provide critical(More)
Three samples with dielectric layers from high- κ dielectrics, hafnium oxide, gadolinium-silicon oxide, and lanthanum-lutetium oxide on silicon substrate were studied by Raman spectroscopy. The results obtained for high- κ dielectrics were compared with spectra recorded for silicon dioxide. Raman spectra suggest the similarity of gadolinium-silicon oxide(More)
A methodological approach is reported to produce a context analysis in South Afghanistan under the banner of Do No Harm (DNH). The difficult work environment for locals, development workers and researchers alike is briefly described; and the problem that is supposed to be solved is derived from it, namely how to elicit the needs and requirements of the(More)
Links between licit and illicit economies fuel conflict in countries mired in irregular warfare. We argue that in Afghanistan, cultivating poppy and trading drugs bring stability to farmers who face the unintended consequences of haphazard development efforts while lacking alternative livelihoods and security necessary to access markets.
