A Survey of Statistical Network Models aims to provide the reader with an entry point to the voluminous literature on statistical network modeling. It guides the reader through the development of key stochastic network models, touches upon a number of examples and commonalities across different parts of the network literature, and discusses major schools of thought in static and dynamic network modeling. Networks have found a prominent place in our everyday lives. In science, networks have been used to analyze interpersonal social relationships, communication, academic paper co- authorships and citations, protein interaction patterns, and much more. Popular books on networks and their analysis began to appear a decade ago, and online "networking communities" such as Facebook, MySpace, and LinkedIn now include millions of people from around the world. Formal statistical modeling for the analysis of network data has emerged as a major research topic in diverse areas of study. A Survey of Statistical Network Models aims to provide the reader with an entry point to the voluminous literature on statistical network modeling. It guides the reader through the development of key stochastic network models, touches upon a number of examples and commonalities across different parts of the network literature, and discusses major schools of thought in static and dynamic network modeling. In addition it illuminates the interconnections between existing models. Despite the rich and extensive network modeling literature, many statistical questions remain unanswered. It is hoped that the concluding discussion of gaps and challenges will help the interested reader deduce important future research directions.
Environmental and Workplace Safety A Guide for University, Hospital, and School Managers James T. O'Reilly Philip Hagan Peter de la Cruz Environmental and Workplace Safety is the first book to provide health, safety, and environmental managers at health care and educational organizations with the comprehensive and up-to-date regulatory and compliance information needed to avoid costly penalties and litigation. It also offers sound guidance on how managers, with the aid of consultants and legal counsel, can develop cost-effective safety and environmental programs to comply with OSHA, DOT, and EPA standards. Environmental and Workplace Safety defines the regulatory problems facing nonprofit organizations and the types of liability their managers and employees are exposed to--since contrary to popular belief, nonprofits are not exempt from compliance and enforcement. Bringing together widely scattered information, this essential resource addresses a wide range of workplace-risk issues, and explains the institution's liability if regulations are violated Coverage includes:<br> * General building safety concerns such as indoor air, lead, asbestos, and electrical safety<br> * Groundwater issues such as underground storage tanks and industrial effluents<br> * Biologically hazardous waste and other laboratory hazards<br> * Air pollution permits required under Title V<br> * OSHA-mandated safety training for a facility's workers and students<br> In addition, this convenient handbook alerts managers to newer potential sources of liability, such as the accidental release of viruses and bacteria in biotechnology experiments, injuries caused by an institution's waste, rapes and assaults in unsafe dormitories and parking lots, and community opposition to hospital and college zoning requests. In each case, the book gives managers cost-effective compliance solutions to these problems to prevent the expensive litigation and negative publicity they can engender. Finally, Environmental and Workplace Safety fosters a new understanding of the importance of safety and environmental professionals within their organizations, enhancing their status and increasing their ability to obtain the resources they need to do their jobs more effectively.
