About this series
The purpose of the Computation and International Security book series is to establish the state of the art and set the course for future research in computational approaches to international security. The scope of this series is broad and aims to look at computational research that addresses topics in counter-terrorism, counter-drug, transnational crime, homeland security, cyber-crime, public policy, international conflict, and stability of nations. Computational research areas that interact with these topics include (but are not restricted to) research in databases, machine learning, data mining, planning, artificial intelligence, operations research, mathematics, network analysis, social networks, computer vision, computer security, biometrics, forecasting, and statistical modeling. The series serves as a central source of reference for information and communications technology that addresses topics related to international security. The series aims to publish thorough and cohesive studies on specific topics in international security that have a computational and/or mathematical theme, as well as works that are larger in scope than survey articles and that will contain more detailed background information. The series also provides a single point of coverage of advanced and timely topics and a forum for topics that may not have reached a level of maturity to warrant a comprehensive textbook.
