Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book results from a NATO Advanced Research Workshop titled Technological Innovations in CBRNE Sensing and Detection for Safety, Security, and Sustainability held in Yerevan, Armenia in 2012. The objective was todiscuss and exchange views as to h ow fusion of advanced technologies can lead to improved sensors/detectors in support of defense, security, and situational awareness. The chapters range from policy and implementation, advanced sensorplatforms using stand-off (THz and optical) and point-c ontact methods for detection of chemical, nuclear, biological, nuclear and explosive agents and contaminants in water, to synthesis methods for several materials used for sensors.In view of asymmetric, kinetic, and distributed nature of threat vectors, an emphasis is placed to examine new generation of sensors/detectors that utilize an ecosystems of innovation and advanced sciences convergence in support ofeffective counter-measures against CBRNE threats. The book will be of considerable interest and valu e to those already pursuing or considering careers in the field of nanostructured materials, and sensing/detection of CBRNE agentsand water-borne contaminants. For policy implementation and compliance standpoint, the book serves as a resource of several i nformative contributions. In general, it serves as a valuable source of information for those interested inhow nanomaterials and nanotechnologies are advancing the field of sensing and detection using nexus of advanced technologies for scientists, technol ogists, policy makers, and soldiers and commanders

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Modern Earth System Monitoring represents a fundamental change in the way scientists study the Earth System. In Oceanography, for the past two centuries, ships have provided the platforms for observing. Expeditions on thecontinents and Earths poles a re land-based analogues. Fundamental understanding of current systems, climate, natural hazards, and ecosystems has been greatly advanced. While these approaches have been remarkably successful, the needto establish measurements over time can only be made using Earth observations and observatories with exacting standards and continuous data. The 19 peer-reviewed contributions in this volume provide early insights into this emergingview of Earth in both space and time in which change is a critical componen t of our growingunderstanding. Presents 19 authoritative, peer-reviewed entries from the Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology Covers a widerange of data collection platforms, including satellite remote sensing, aerial surveys, and land- a nd ocean-based monitoring stations Features a glossary of key terms and a concise definition of the subject for each contributionWritten for an audience of undergraduate and graduate students, as well as professionals in academia, industry, and government

Title:Hybrid Switching Diffusions [electronic resource] : Properties and Applications
Author(s): G. George Yin
Chao Zhu
Date:2010
Edition:First
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents a comprehensive study of hybrid switching diffusion processes and their applications. The motivations for studying such processes originate from emerging and existing applications in wireless communications,signal processing, queue ing networks, production planning, biological systems, ecosystems, financial engineering, and modeling, analysis, and control and optimization of large-scale systems, under the influence of random environment.One of the distinct features of the processes under consideration is the coexistence of continuous dynamics and discrete events. This book is written for applied mathematicians, applied probabilists, systems engineers, controlscientists, operations researchers, and financial analysts. Selected materi als from the book may also be used in a graduate level course on stochastic processes and applications or a course on hybrid systems. A large part of the bookis concerned with the discrete event process depending on the continuous dynamics. In addition to the existence and uniqueness of solutions of switching diffusion equations, regularity, Feller and strong Feller properties, continuousand smooth dependence on initial data, recurrence, ergodicity, invariant measures, and stability are dealt with. Numeri cal methods for solutions of switching diffusions are developed algorithms for approximation to invariant measuresare investigated. Two-time-scale models are also examined. The results presented in the book are useful to researchers and practitioners who need to use stochastic models to deal with hybrid stochastic systems, and to treat real-worldproblems when continuous dynamics and discrete events are intertwined, in which the traditional approach using stochastic differential equations aloneis no longer adequate

Title:Weak Links [electronic resource] : The Universal Key to the Stability of Networks and Complex Systems

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:How can our societies be stabilized in a crisis? Why can we enjoy and understand Shakespeare? Why are fruitflies uniform? How do omnivorous eating habits aid our survival? What makes the Mona Lisas smile beautiful? How dowomen keep our social structu res intact? Could there possibly be a single answer to all these questions? This book shows that the statement: weak links stabilize complex systems provides the key to understanding each of theseintriguing puzzles, and many others too. The author (recip ient of several distinguished science communication prizes) uses weak (low affinity, low probability) interactions as a thread to introduce a vast variety of networks fromproteins to economics and ecosystems. Many people, from Nobel Laureates to high-scho ol students have helped to make the book understandable to all interested readers. This unique book and the ideas it develops will have a significantimpact on many, seemingly diverse, fields of study. A very personal, engaging, and unique book that will a ppeal to readers and get them thinking Steve Strogatz An adventurous, entertainingly eclectic and rich work both for experts andlaymen Lszl-Albert Barabsi This masterpiece should serve as an example of how science can be discussed Gyrgy Buzski Outstanding - I wish more books were written this way Daniel J.

Title:Shrouds of the Night [electronic resource] : Masks of the Milky Way and Our Awesome New View of Galaxies

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The Milky Way has captivated the mind of multitudes ever since the beginning of time. Particularly striking are its apparent dusty gaping voids. With the advent of near-infrared technology, astronomers have discovered an awesomenew view of its struct ure, and of the structure of other galaxies around us. Galaxies are encased within shrouds of the night: shrouds or veils of cosmic dust, which have given us a totally incomplete picture of what our majesticUniverse actually looks like. Shrouds of the Nig ht features some of the most remarkable early photographic work of masters such as Isaac Roberts and Edward Barnard, before presenting to the reader the unmasked (dust penetrated) view ofour cosmos, using some of the worlds largest ground and space-based telescopes. Galaxies are the 'ecosystems' of the cosmos vast assemblages in which gas and dust are recycled through successive generations of stars. Theauthors of this beautiful book describe our ever-sharpening view of the Milky Way, the galaxy that is our home and the discovery of the other galaxies that are its neighbors in deep space. Their voyage lies not in seeking newlandscapes but in having new eyes. In fine images and eloquent text, the two distinguished authors convey the fascination indeed t he inspiration of this scientific quest. -Lord Martin Rees of Ludlow OM Kt PRS AstronomerRoyal, President of the Royal Society, Professor of Cosmology and Astrophysics, University of Cambridge. It's hard to decide what is most appealing about this unusua l offering: its brilliantly chosen treasury of illustrations, or thetext's poetic journey of discovery from smoke to galaxies, from the minuscule to the gigantic and the astonishing connections between them. Along the path are rich insights into the varie ties of astronomical seeing, from the history ofphotography to the space telescopes that extend our vision beyond the visible. Historical connections are everywhere, from Jean Petit's
