About this book

TThis book illustrates recent advances in applications of partial order theory and Hasse diagram techniques to data analysis, mainly in the socio-economic and environmental sciences. For years, partial order theory has been considered a fundamental branch of mathematics of only theoretical interest. In recent years, its effectiveness as a tool for data analysis is increasingly being realized and many applications of partially ordered sets to real problems in statistics and applied sciences have appeared. Main examples pertain to the analysis of complex and multidimensional systems of ordinal data and to problems of multi-criteria decision making, so relevant in social and environmental sciences. 
Partial Order Concepts in Applied Sciences presents new theoretical and methodological developments in partial order for data analysis, together with a wide range of applications to different topics: multidimensional poverty, economic development, inequality measurement, ecology and pollution, and biology, to mention a few. The book is of interest for applied mathematicians, statisticians, social scientists, environmental scientists and all those aiming at keeping pace with innovation in this interesting, growing and promising research field.

About the authors

Marco Fattore, Degree in Theoretical Physics, Ph. D in Statistics, Assistant Professor in Applied Statistics, Department of Statistics and Quantitative Methods, University of Milano-Bicocca. His main research interests pertain to mathematical structures in data analysis, with a particular focus on Partial Order Theory and the measurement of multidimensional poverty and inequality. He also works on Big Data analysis and applied multivariate statistics in socio-economics.
Rainer Brüggemann has studied chemistry in the Ludwig-Maximilians University Munich (LMU) and received his PhD at LMU, in quantum chemistry.After a time as post doc working about spectroscopical issues he joined a group, performing risk assessment studies with respect to nuclear waste disposal sites (Technical University in Berlin). Position in the Helmholtz-Center Munich (former: GSF - National Research Center for Environment and Health). There he was one of the authors of the evaluation software code for chemicals "E4CHEM". Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries, Berlin. Together with Prof. Steinberg an award concerning their work in limnologyNow, retired, he is working mainly about partial order and its applications.
