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

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The disastrous impact of the recent worldwide financial crisis in the global economy has shown how vulnerable international markets are. The insufficiency of our models and tools to effectively intercept the overwhelmingconsequences of the decline ha s to be the starting point for re-designing and re-engineering existing portfolio management methods and tools. Under this rationale, three strong necessities become apparent: a) The enhancement ofcurrent PM processes and ontologies, b) The improvement o f the effectiveness of contemporary portfolio engineering models, and c) The augmentation of the operational transparency and compliance within the PM practice. The methods,tools, and analytics that are presented in this book directly deal with the above objectives and assist in the enhancement of current state-of-the-art by introducing innovative and integrated investment business analytics andframeworks, launching new powerful and robust decision support algorithmic tools and mechanisms, and exploiting multiple risk metrics and standardized risk management procedures, within a fertile coalition. The target audience ofthis book includes a diversified group of readers, such as portfolio managers, financial managers, economists, bankers, as well as operat ions researchers and management scientists. Moreover, this monograph can also be used as atextbook for graduate courses in portfolio theory, investment analysis and fund management

Title:Demand Flexibility in Supply Chain Planning [electronic resource]
Author(s): Joseph Geunes
Date:2012
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:This work encapsulates the essential developments in this field into a single resource, as well as to set an agenda for further development in the field.This brief focuses on the demand flexibility in supply chains withfragmented results distributed throughout the literature. These results have strong implications for managing real-world complex operations planning problems. This book exploits dimensions of demand flexibility in supply chains andcharacterizes the best fit between demand properties an d operations capabilities and constraints. The origins and seminal works are traced in integrated demand and operations planning and an in-depth documentation is provided for thecurrent state of the art. Systems with inherent costs and constraints that mu st respond to some set of demands at a minimum cost are examined. Crucial unanswered questions are explored and the high-value research directions arehighlighted for both practice and for the development of new and interesting optimization models and algo rithms.

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

Title:Grain Boundary Segregation in Metals [electronic resource]
Author(s): Pavel Lejcek
Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Grain boundaries are important structural components of polycrystalline materials used in the vast majority of technical applications. Because grain boundaries form a continuous network throughout such materials, their propertiesmay limit their pract ical use. One of the serious phenomena which evoke these limitations is the grain boundary segregation of impurities. It results in the loss of grain boundary cohesion and consequently, in brittle fracture of thematerials. The current book deals with fund amentals of grain boundary segregation in metallic materials and its relationship to the grain boundary structure, classification and other materials properties

Note:In this monograph the authors develop a theory for the robust control of discrete-time stochastic systems, subjected to both independent random perturbations and to Markov chains. Such systems are widely used to providemathematical models for real pr ocesses in fields such as aerospace engineering, communications, manufacturing, finance and economy. The theory is a continuation of the authors work presented in their previous book entitledMathematical Methods in Robust Control of Linear Stochastic Syst ems published by Springer in 2006. Key features: - Provides a common unifying framework for discrete-time stochastic systems corrupted with both independent randomperturbations and with Markovian jumps which are usually treated separately in the control l iterature - Covers preliminary material on probability theory, independent random variables, conditional expectation and Markov chains -Proposes new numerical algorithms to solve coupled matrix algebraic Riccati equations - Leads the reader in a natural w ay to the original results through a systematic presentation - Presents new theoretical results with detailednumerical examples The monograph is geared to researchers and graduate students in advanced control engineering, applied mathematics, mathematical systems theory and finance. It is also accessible to undergraduate students with afundamental knowledge in the theory of stochastic systems

Note:The science of graphs and networks has become by now a well-established tool for modelling and analyzing a variety of systems with a large number of interacting components. Starting from the physical sciences, applications havespread rapidly to the n atural and social sciences, as well as to economics, and are now further extended, in this volume, to the concept of innovations, viewed broadly. In an abstract, systems-theoretical approach, innovation can beunderstood as a critical event which destabili zes the current state of the system, and results in a new process of self-organization leading to a new stable state. The contributions to this anthology address different aspects of therelationship between innovation and networks. The various chapters in corporate approaches in evolutionary economics, agent-based modeling, social network analysis and econophysics and explore the epistemic tension between insights intoeconomics and society-related processes, and the insights into new forms of complex dynam ics

Note:The transportation problem can be formalized as the problem of finding the optimal way to transport a given measure into another with the same mass. In contrast to the Monge-Kantorovitch problem, recent approaches model thebranched structure of such supply networks as minima of an energy functional whose essential feature is to favour wide roads. Such a branched structure is observable in ground transportation networks, in draining and irrigationsystems, in electrical power supply systems and in natu ral counterparts such as blood vessels or the branches of trees. These lectures provide mathematical proof of several existence, structure and regularity properties empiricallyobserved in transportation networks. The link with previous discrete physical m odels of irrigation and erosion models in geomorphology and with discrete telecommunication and transportation models is discussed. It will bemathematically proven that the majority fit in the simple model sketched in this volume

Note:The implicit function theorem is one of the most important theorems in analysis and its many variants are basic tools in partial differential equations and numerical analysis. This book treats the implicit function paradigm in theclassical framework and beyond, focusing largely on properties of solution mappings of variational problems. The purpose of this self-contained work is to provide a reference on the topic and to provide a unified collection of a numberof results which are currently scattered throughout the literature. The first chapter of the book treats the classical implicit function theorem in a way that will be useful for students and teachers of undergraduate calculus. Theremaining part becomes gradually more advanced, and considers imp licit mappings defined by relations other than equations, e.g., variational problems. Applications to numerical analysis and optimization are also provided. This valuablebook is a major achievement and is sure to become a standard reference on the topic

Note:Information is an important feature of the modern world. Mathematical techniques underlie the devices that we use to handle it, for example, mobile phones, digital cameras, and personal computers. This book is an integratedintroduction to the mathema tics of coding, that is, replacing information expressed in symbols, such as a natural language or a sequence of bits, by another message using (possibly) different symbols. There are three main reasons fordoing this: economy, reliability, and security, a nd each is covered in detail. Only a modest mathematical background is assumed, the mathematical theory being introduced at a level that enables the basic problems to be statedcarefully, but without unnecessary abstraction. Other features include: clear a nd careful exposition of fundamental concepts, including optimal coding, data compression, and public-key cryptography concise but complete proofs ofresults coverage of recent advances of practical interest, for example in encryption standards, authentica tion schemes, and elliptic curve cryptography numerous examples and exercises, and a full solutions manual available tolecturers from www.springer.com This modern introduction to all aspects of coding is suitable for advanced undergraduate or postgraduate courses in mathematics, computer science, electrical engineering, or informatics. It is alsouseful for researchers and practitioners in related areas of science, engineering and economics

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Constrained optimization models are core tools in business, science, government, and the military with applications including airline scheduling, control of petroleum refining operations, investment decisions, and many others.Constrained optimization models have grown immensely in scale and complexity in recent years as inexpensive computing power has become widely available. Models now frequently have many complicated interacting constraints, giving riseto a host of issues related to feasibility and infeasibility. For example, it is sometimes difficult to find any feasible point at all for a large model, or even to accurately determine if one exists, e.g. for nonlinear models. If themodel is feasible, how quickly can a solution be found? If the mode l is infeasible, how can the cause be isolated and diagnosed? Can a repair to restore feasibility be carried out automatically? Researchers have developed numerousalgorithms and computational methods in recent years to address such issues, with a number o f surprising spin-off applications in fields such as artificial intelligence and computational biology. Over the same time period, relatedapproaches and techniques relating to feasibility and infeasibility of constrained problems have arisen in the constr aint programming community. Feasibility and Infeasibility in Optimization is a timely expository book that summarizesthe state of the art in both classical and recent algorithms related to feasibility and infeasibility in optimization, with a focus on pra ctical methods. All model forms are covered, including linear, nonlinear, and mixed-integerprograms. Connections to related work in constraint programming are shown. Part I of the book addresses algorithms for seeking feasibility quickly, including new me thods for the difficult cases of nonlinear and mixed-integer programs.Part II provides algorithms for analyzing infeasibility by isolating minimal infeasible (or maximum feasible) subsets of constraints

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Linear and Nonlinear Programming is considered a classic textbook in Optimization. While it is a classic, it also reflects modern theoretical insights. These insights provide structure to what might otherwise be simply acollection of techniques and r esults, and this is valuable both as a means for learning existing material and for developing new results. One major insight of this type is the connection between the purely analytical character of anoptimization problem, expressed perhaps by properties of the necessary conditions, and the behavior of algorithms used to solve a problem. This was a major theme of the first and second editions. Now the third edition has beencompletely updated with recent Optimization Methods. Yinyu Ye has written chapters and chapter material on a number of these areas including Interior Point Methods. This book is designed for either self-study by professionals orclassroom work at the undergraduate or graduate level for technical students. Like the field of optimization itself, which involves many classical disciplines, the book should be useful to system analysts, operations researchers,numerical analysts, management scientists, and other specialists

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Linear Programming: Foundations and Extensions is an introduction to the field of optimization. The book emphasizes constrained optimization, beginning with a substantial treatment of linear programming, and proceeding to convexanalysis, network flow s, integer programming, quadratic programming, and convex optimization. The book is carefully written. Specific examples and concrete algorithms precede more abstract topics. Topics are clearly developed with alarge number of numerical examples worked out in detail. Moreover, Linear Programming: Foundations and Extensions underscores the purpose of optimization: to solve practical problems on a computer. Accordingly, the book is coordinatedwith free efficient C programs that implement the major algorithms studied: The two-phase simplex method The primal-dual simplex method The path-following interior-point method The homogeneous self-dual methods. In addition, thereare online JAVA applets that illustrate various pivot rules and variants of the simplex met hod, both for linear programming and for network flows.

Note:The paradigms of dynamic games play an important role in the development of multi-agent models in engineering, economics, and management science. The applicability of their concepts stems from the ability to encompass situationswith uncertainty, inco mplete information, fluctuating coalition structure, and coupled constraints imposed on the strategies of all the players. This bookan outgrowth of the 10th International Symposium on Dynamic Gamespresentscurrent developments of the theory of dynamic game s and its applications to various domains, in particular energy-environment economics and management sciences. The volume uses dynamic game models of various sorts to approach and solveseveral problems pertaining to pursuit-evasion, marketing, finance, cl imate and environmental economics, resource exploitation, as well as auditing and tax evasions. In addition, it includes some chapters on cooperative games, whichare increasingly drawing dynamic approaches to their classical solutions. The book is themati cally organized into six parts: * zero-sum game theory * pursuit-evasion games * games of coalitions * new interpretations of theinterdependence between different members of a social group * original applications to energy-environment economics * manageme nt science applications This work will serve as a state-of-the art account of recent advances in dynamic gametheory and its applications for researchers, practitioners, and graduate students in applied mathematics, engineering, economics, as well as envir onmental and management sciences
