'Nonlinear Dynamical Systems Analysis for the Behavioral Sciences Using Real Data', by
Stephen J. Guastello & Robert A. M. Gregson, Editors.

A compilation of research methods reflecting the expertise of the major contributors to NDS psychology, this book examines the techniques that have proven to be most useful in the behavioral sciences. The editors have brought together constructive work on new practical examples of methods and application built on nonlinear dynamics. The authors cover dynamics such as attractors, bifurcations, chaos, fractals, catastrophes, self-organization, and related issues in time series analysis, stationarity, modeling and hypothesis testing, probability, and experimental design. The analytic techniques discussed include several variants of the fractal dimension, several types of entropy, phase-space and state-space diagrams, recurrence analysis, spatial fractal analysis, oscillation functions, polynomial and Marquardt nonlinear regression, Markov chains, and symbolic dynamics. This book is designed to develop skill and expertise in framing dynamical hypotheses and in building viable analytic models to test them. It addresses topics and methods of current interest in an application driven manner, making the book useful to the behavioral sciences community, as well as those in engineering, medicine, and other fields who are interested in nonlinear dynamics. The authors provide a generous supply of instructions for operating some of the most popular software for nonlinear dynamical systems analysis

'Maestría en Metodología de la Investigación Científica' 2021

Maestría en Metodología de la Investigación Científica
Directora. Dra. Cristina Ambrosini

La Maestría te brindará una formación integral no prevista en las carreras de grado, que incluye la reflexión acerca de las características del conocimiento científico, así como también sobre las modalidades de producción del saber en su interacción con el resto de las prácticas sociales. 

La carrera posee una modalidad semipresencial (no virtual), con la combinación de una metodología propia de cursos a distancia (plataforma moodle) con clases teóricas de presencia obligatoria, que se realizan una vez al mes, los días viernes y sábados de 10 a 18 hs. en la sede Remedios de Escalada de nuestra Universidad. Para aprobar los módulos es obligatorio cumplir con el 80% de asistencia a las clases presenciales, estar presente en las instancias virtuales y rendir un final presencial por cada módulo cursado. 

El egresado de la Maestría de la Universidad Nacional de Lanús cuenta con un perfil sólidamente académico y está formado para: 

· Asesorar a grupos de investigación en cuestiones relativas a la elaboración de diseños y proyectos de investigación.

·Integrar o dirigir proyectos de investigación acordes con su formación profesional.

·Impartir enseñanza básica sobre dichas cuestiones.

·Gestionar carreras de grado y posgrado.

·Formar parte como Jurado de concursos de grado y Defensas de tesis de posgrado.

·Presentar marcos teóricos epistemológicos como sustento a desarrollos metodológicos investigativos y docentes. 

·Diseñar, ejecutar y evaluar proyectos de investigación en el ámbito de las distintas  disciplinas científicas.

·Participar activamente de los procedimientos de administración e la ciencia.

·Participar, en general con argumentos coherentes y fundados, en el debate contemporáneo acerca de la crisis científico social de nuestro tiempo en ámbitos académicos y en diversos foros de opinión pública.

Plan de Estudios

El programa de la Maestría en Metodología de la Investigación Científica está articulado en cinco módulos que contemplan tanto los aspectos teóricos de formación epistemológica general -acerca de las características de la práctica científica en general y de su relación con el conocimiento científico y con la sociedad en particular- como los aspectos prácticos de diseño, implementación y evaluación de proyectos de investigación en el campo de las ciencias naturales y en el de las ciencias sociales, así como en el de las indagaciones humanísticas y artísticas.

Por tratarse de una carrera cuya matrícula es multidisciplinar, existe un curso de nivelación para los estudiantes provenientes de carreras que no contemplen en su plan de estudios asignaturas teórico-metodológicas en un 30% de su currícula, ni acrediten méritos equivalentes. La Comisión Evaluadora de la MIC, analizará los antecedentes e indicará quienes deben hacer dicho curso que se realizará mediante aula virtual y culminará con la entrega de un trabajo por el mismo medio
