The purpose of this project was to develop the modeling and analysis of both PDE-based and statistical point process models for repeat activity in security applications. The research team has made great strides in applying such ideas to urban domestic crime applications, to the point where models developed in research papers several years ago are now in place in the field in over 30 cities worldwide. This project developed new basic research to extend many of these ideas beyond domestic crime applications to problems abroad involving insurgents and also to other areas of interest to the Army such as email traffic on social networks and to emotional contagion in crowds. The research project produced 15 journal publications and an additional 4 manuscripts still under review. Published and submitted journal papers included the work of two postdoctoral scholars, six PhD students and three undergraduates, in addition to the PIs.
