Title:Applied Data-Centric Social Sciences [electronic resource] : Concepts, Data, Computation, and Theory
Author(s): Aki-Hiro Sato
Date:2014
Publisher:Tokyo : Springer Japan : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Applied data-centric social sciences aim to develop both methodology and practical applications of various fields of social sciences and businesses with rich data. Specifically, in the social sciences, a vast amount of data onhuman activities may be useful for understanding collective human nature. In this book, the author introduces several mathematical techniques for handling a huge volume of data and analysing collective human behaviour. The book isconstructed from data-oriented investigation, wit h mathematical methods and expressions used for dealing with data for several specific problems. The fundamental philosophy underlying the book is that both mathematical and physicalconcepts are determined by the purposes of data analysis. This philosophy is shown throughout exemplar studies of several fields in socio-economic systems. From a data-centric point of view, the author proposes a concept that maychange peoples minds and cause them to start thinking from the basis of data. Several goals underli e the chapters of the book. The first is to describe mathematical and statistical methods for data analysis, and toward that end theauthor delineates methods with actual data in each chapter. The second is to find a cyber-physical link between data and da ta-generating mechanisms, as data are always provided by some kind of data-generating process in the real world.The third goal is to provide an impetus for the concepts and methodology set forth in this book to be applied to socio-economic systems

Title:Physics of Societal Issues [electronic resource] : Calculations on National Security, Environment, and Energy
Author(s): David Hafemeister
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides the reader with essential tools needed to analyze complex societal issues and demonstrates the transition from physics to modern-day laws and treaties. This second edition features new equation-orientedmaterial and extensive data s ets drawing upon current information from experts in their fields. Problems to challenge the reader and extend discussion are presented on three timely issues: National Security:Weapons, Offense, Defense, Verification, Nuclear Proliferation, Terrorism Environment: Air/Water, Nuclear, Climate Change, EM Fields/Epidemiology Energy: Current Energy Situation, Buildings, SolarBuildings, Renewable Energy, Enhanced End-Use Efficiency, Transportation, Economics Praise for the first edition: This insight is n eeded in Congress and the Executive Branch. Hafemeister, a former Congressional fellow with wideWashington experience, has written a book for physicists, chemists and engineers who want to learn science and policy on weapons, energy, and the environment. Scientists who want to make a difference will want this book. RichardScribner, first Director, Congressional Science and Engineering Fellow Program, AAAS Hafemeister shows how much one can understand about nuclear weapons and missile issues through simpl e back-of-the-envelope calculations. He alsoprovides compact explanations of the partially successful attempts that have been made over the past 60 years to control these weapons of mass destruction. Hopefully, Physics of Societal Issues will help interes t a new generation ofphysicists in continuing this work. Frank von Hippel, Professor, Princeton, former Assistant Director, National Security, White House, OSTP Energy policy must be quantitative.

Title:Statistical Analysis of Financial Data in R [electronic resource]
Author(s): Ren Carmona
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Although there are many books on mathematical finance, few deal with the statistical aspects of modern data analysis as applied to financial problems. This book fills this gap by addressing some of the most challenging issuesfacing any financial engi neer. It shows how sophisticated mathematics and modern statistical techniques can be used in concrete financial problems. Concerns of risk management are addressed by the control of extreme values, the fittingof distributions with heavy tails, the comput ation of values at risk (VaR), and other measures of risk. Data description techniques such as principal component analysis (PCA), smoothing, and regression are applied to the constructionof yield and forward curve. Nonparametric estimation and nonlinear filtering are used for option pricing and earnings prediction. The book is intended for undergraduate students majoring in financial engineering, or graduate studentsin a Master in finance or MBA program. Because it was designed as a teaching vehicle, it is sprinkled with practical examples using market data, and each chapter ends with exercises. Practical examples are solved in the computingenvironment of R. They illustrate problems occurring in the commodity and energy markets, the fixed income markets as well as the equity markets, and even some new emerging markets like the weather markets. The book can helpquantitative analysts by guiding them through the details of statistical model estimation and implementation. It will also be of interest to resea rchers wishing to manipulate financial data, implement abstract concepts, and testmathematical theories, especially by addressing practical issues that are often neglected in the presentation of the theory

Title:Pollution Under Environmental Regulation in Energy Markets [electronic resource]
Author(s): Francesco Gull
Date:2013
Publisher:London : Springer London : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Pollution Under Environmental Regulation in Energy Markets provides a study of environmental regulation when energy markets are imperfectly competitive. This theoretical treatment focuses on three relevant cases of energy markets.First, the residenti al space heating sector where hybrid regulation such as taxation and emissions trading together are possible. Second, the electricity market where transactions are organized in the form of multi-period auctions.Third, namely natural gas (input) and electr icity (output) markets where there is combined imperfect competition in vertical related energy markets. The development of free or low carbon technologies supported by energy policies,aiming at increasing security of supply, is also explored whilst cons idering competition policies that reduce market power in energy markets thus improving market efficiency. Pollution Under Environmental Regulation in Energy Marketsdiscusses the key issues of whether imperfect competition can lessen the ability of environ mental policy to reduce pollution and/or to minimize the cost of meeting environmental targets. Policymakers, analysts and researchers gain athorough understanding of the performance of environmental policy from Pollution Under Environmental Regulation i n Energy Markets leading to better design of simulation models of performance and costs of environmental regulation

Title:Chips 2020 [electronic resource] : A Guide to the Future of Nanoelectronics
Author(s): Bernd Hoefflinger
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The chips in present-day cell phones already contain billions of sub-100-nanometer transistors. By 2020, however, we will see systems-on-chips with trillions of 10-nanometer transistors. But this will be the end of theminiaturization, because yet sma ller transistors, containing just a few control atoms, are subject to statisticalfluctuations and thus no longer useful. We also need to worry about a potential energy crisis, because in less than fiveyears from now, with current chip technology, the inte rnet alone would consume the total global electrical power! This book presents a new, sustainable roadmap towards ultra-low-energy (femto-Joule), high-performance electronics. Thefocus is on the energy-efficiency of the various chip functions: sensing, pr ocessing, and communication, in a top-down spirit involving new architectures such as silicon brains, ultra-low-voltage circuits, energy harvesting, and 3Dsilicon technologies. Recognized world leaders from industry and from the research community share t heir views of this nanoelectronics future. They discuss, among other things, ubiquitous communication based on mobile companions,health and care supported by autonomous implants and by personal carebots, safe and efficient mobility assisted by co-pilots e quipped with intelligent micro-electromechanical systems, and internet-based education for a billionpeoplefrom kindergarden to retirement. This book should help and interest all those who will have to make decisions associated with future electronics: stu dents, graduates, educators, and researchers, as well as managers, investors, andpolicy makers.

Title:The Second Law of Economics [electronic resource] Energy, Entropy, and the Origins of Wealth
Author(s): Reiner Kmmel
Date:2011
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Nothing happens in the world without energy conversion and entropy production. These fundamental natural laws are familiar to most of us when applied to the evolution of stars, biological processes, or the working of an internalcombustion engine, but what about industrial economies and wealth production, or their constant companion, pollution? Does economics conform to the First and the Second Law of Thermodynamics? In this important book, ReinerKmmel takes us on a fascinating tour of these laws and their influence on natural, technological, and social evolution. Analyzing economic growth in Germany, Japan, and the United States in light of technological constraints oncapital, labor, and energy, Professor Kmmel upends conventional economic wisdom by showing that the productive power of energy far outweighs its small share of costs, while for labor just the opposite is true. Wealth creation byenergy conversion is accompanied and limited by polluting emissions that are coupled to entropy production. Th ese facts constitute the Second Law of Economics. They take on unprecedented importance in a world that is facing peakoil, debt-driven economic turmoil, and threats from pollution and climate change. They complement the First Law of Economics: Wealth is a llocated on markets, and the legal framework determines the outcome. By applying the First andSecond Law we understand the true origins of wealth production, the issues that imperil the goal of sustainable development, and the technological options that a re compatible both with this goal and with natural laws. The criticalrole of energy and entropy in the productive sectors of the economy must be realized if we are to create a road map that avoids a Dark Age of shrinking natural resources, environmental d egradation, and increasing social tensions
