I analyze the new emerging role of mathematics for extracting structure from data. This role is different from the traditional role of mathematics as a tool for other sciences. Each such science had provided a theoretical framework in which experiments acquired meaning, with which the quality of data could be assessed and which could be explored with the formal methods of mathematics. The challenge for mathematics now is to handle data without such theoretical guidance from other disciplines… 

Boundedly rational strategic interaction and the interplay between complexity and simplification: Implications for strategy science

It is a basic question of strategy science how we can cope with an uncertain and complex world, taking into account limitations of information access or computing power. Using new insights from

Data and Model Operations in Computational Sciences: The Examples of Computational Embryology and Epidemiology

The article deconstructs the ideas that data are self-evident informational aggregates and that data-driven approaches are exempted from theoretical work and stresses the fact that data is constructed and theory laden not only in their fabrication, but also in their reusing.

Agnostic Science. Towards a Philosophy of Data Analysis

It is argued that, rather than diminishing or flattening the role of mathematics in science, the lack of isomorphisms with phenomena liberates mathematics, paradoxically making more likely the practical use of some of its most sophisticated ideas.

Topology and data

This paper will discuss how geometry and topology can be applied to make useful contributions to the analysis of various kinds of data, particularly high throughput data from microarray or other sources.

Closure measures for coarse-graining of the tent map.

The relationship between the dynamics of a time-discrete dynamical system, the tent map T and its iterations T(m), and the induced dynamics at a symbolical level in information theoretical terms is quantitatively evaluated.

Comparison between Different Methods of Level Identification

This study is restricted to the case of discrete dynamical systems, where the different levels are linked by a coarse-graining of variables and states of the system.

Head-driven phrase structure grammar

This book presents the most complete exposition of the theory of head-driven phrase structure grammar, introduced in the authors' "Information-Based Syntax and Semantics," and demonstrates the applicability of the HPSG approach to a wide range of empirical problems.

The devil in the details : asymptotic reasoning in explanation, reduction, and emergence

Batterman examines a form of scientific reasoning called asymptotic reasoning, which he argues has important consequences for our understanding of the scientific process as a whole. He argues that

Support Vector Machines

This book explains the principles that make support vector machines (SVMs) a successful modelling and prediction tool for a variety of applications and provides a unique in-depth treatment of both fundamental and recent material on SVMs that so far has been scattered in the literature.

An Introduction to Support Vector Machines and Other Kernel-based Learning Methods

This is the first comprehensive introduction to Support Vector Machines (SVMs), a new generation learning system based on recent advances in statistical learning theory, and will guide practitioners to updated literature, new applications, and on-line software.

A Method for Finding Aggregated Representations of Linear Dynamical Systems

An algorithm that finds aggregations of linear dynamical systems, e.g. including Markov chains and diffusion processes on weighted and directed networks, by employing it to identify coarse grained representations of cellular automata.

Introduction to Chaotic Dynamical Systems

This thesis develops some of the current definitions of chaos and discusses several quantitative measures of chaos, and serves as a complement to the work done by Philip Beaver, which details chaotic dynamics for discrete systems.
