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.

Title:Analyzing Compositional Data with R [electronic resource]
Author(s): K. Gerald van den Boogaart
Raimon Tolosana-Delgado
Date:2013
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents the statistical analysis of compositional data sets, i.e., data in percentages, proportions, concentrations, etc. The subject is covered from its grounding principles to the practical use in descriptiveexploratory analysis, robust linear models and advanced multivariate statistical methods, including zeros and missing values, and paying special attention to data visualization and model display issues. Many illustrated examples andcode chunks guide the reader into their modeling and interpretation. And, though the book primarily serves as a reference guide for the R package compositions, it is also a general introductory text on Compositional DataAnalysis. Awareness of their special characteristics spread in the Geosciences in the e arly sixties, but a strategy for properly dealing with them was not available until the works of Aitchison in the eighties. Since then, research hasexpanded our understanding of their theoretical principles and the potentials and limitations of their inte rpretation. This is the first comprehensive textbook addressing these issues, as well as their practical implications withregard to software. The book is intended for scientists interested in statistically analyzing their compositional data. The subject e njoys relatively broad awareness in the geosciences and environmental sciences, but the spectrum ofrecent applications also covers areas like medicine, official statistics, and economics. Readers should be familiar with basic univariate and multivariate s tatistics. Knowledge of R is recommended but not required, as the book isself-contained

Note:Introduction to Global Optimization Exploiting Space-Filling Curves provides an overview of classical and new results pertaining to the usage of space-filling curves in global optimization. The authors look at a family ofderivative-free numerical alg orithms applying space-filling curves to reduce the dimensionality of the global optimization problem along with a number of unconventional ideas, such as adaptive strategies for estimating Lipschitzconstant, balancing global and local information to acce lerate the search. Convergence conditions of the described algorithms are studied in depth and theoretical considerations are illustrated through numerical examples. This workalso contains a code for implementing space-filling curves that can be used for constructing new global optimization algorithms. Basic ideas from this text can be applied to a number of problems including problems with multiextremaland partially defined constraints and non-redundant parallel computations can be organized. Professors, students, researchers, engineers, and other professionals in the fields of pure mathematics, nonlinear sciences studying fractals,operations research, management science, industrial and applied mathematics, computer science, engineering, economics, and t he environmental sciences will find this title useful .

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Applied Spatial Data Analysis with R, Second Edition, is divided into two basic parts, the first presenting R packages, functions, classes and methods for handling spatial data. This part is of interest to users who need to accessand visualise spatia l data. Data import and export for many file formats for spatial data are covered in detail, as is the interface between R and the open source GRASS GIS and the handling of spatio-temporal data. The second partshowcases more specialised kinds of spatial d ata analysis, including spatial point pattern analysis, interpolation and geostatistics, areal data analysis and disease mapping. The coverage of methods of spatial data analysis ranges fromstandard techniques to new developments, and the examples used ar e largely taken from the spatial statistics literature. All the examples can be run using R contributed packages available from the CRAN website, with code and additionaldata sets from the book's own website. Compared to the first edition, the second edit ion covers the more systematic approach towards handling spatial data in R, as well as a number of important and widely used CRAN packages that haveappeared since the first edition. This book will be of interest to researchers who intend to use R to hand le, visualise, and analyse spatial data. It will also be of interest to spatial data analysts who do not use R, but who areinterested in practical aspects of implementing software for spatial data analysis. It is a suitable companion book for introductory spatial statistics courses and for applied methods courses in a wide range of subjects using spatialdata, including human and physical geography, geographical information science and geoinformatics, the environmental sciences, ecology, public health and disease control, economics, public administration and political science. Thebook has a website where complete code examples, data sets, and other support material may be found: http://www.asdar-boo

Note:Heavy-tailed probability distributions are an important component in the modeling of many stochastic systems. They are frequently used to accurately model inputs and outputs of computer and data networks and service facilitiessuch as call centers. Th ey are an essential for describing risk processes in finance and also for insurance premia pricing, and such distributions occur naturally in models of epidemiological spread. The class includes distributionswith power law tails such as the Pareto, as wel l as the lognormal and certain Weibull distributions. One of the highlights of this new edition is that it includes problems at the end of each chapter. Chapter 5 is also updated toinclude interesting applications to queueing theory, risk, and branching processes. New results are presented in a simple, coherent and systematic way. Graduate students as well as modelers in the fields of finance, insurance, networkscience and environmental studies will find this book to be an essential reference

Title:Pollution Under Environmental Regulation in Energy Markets [electronic resource]

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:Conflicts in the form of wars, or competition among countries and industrial institutions are plenty in human history. The introduction of game theory in the middle of the twentieth century shed insights and enabled researchers toanalyze this subject with mathematical rigor. From the ground-breaking work of VonNeumann and Morgenston, modern game theory evolved enormously. In the last few decades, Dynamic game theory framework has been deepened and generalizedfrom the pioneering work on differential g ames by R. Isaacs, L.S. Pontryagin and his school, and on stochastic games by Shapley. This book will expose the reader to some of the fundamental methodology in non-cooperative game theory,and highlight some numerical methods, along with some relevant ap plications. Since the early development days, differential game theory has had a significant impact in such diverse disciplines as applied mathematics, economics, systemstheory, engineering, operations, research, biology, ecology, environmental sciences, among others. Modern game theory now relies on wide ranging mathematical and computational methods, and relevant applications that are rich andchallenging. Game theory has been widely recognized as an important tool in many fields. Importance of game theo ry to economics is illustrated by the fact that numerous game theorists, such as John Forbes Nash, Jr., Robert J. Aumannand Thomas C. Schelling, have won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics Sciences. Simply put, game-theory has the potential to reshape the analysis of human interaction

Title:Social Self-Organization [electronic resource] : Agent-Based Simulations and Experiments to Study Emergent Social Behavior

Note:What are the principles that keep our society together? This question is even more difficult to answer than the long-standing question, what are the forces that keep our world together. However, the social challenges of humanityin the 21st century ra nging from the financial crises to the impacts of globalization, require us to make fast progress in our understanding of how society works, and how our future can be managed in a resilient and sustainable way.This book can present only a few very first s teps towards this ambitious goal. However, based on simple models of social interactions, one can already gain some surprising insights into the social, ``macro-level'' outcomes and dynamicsthat is implied by individual, ``micro-level'' interactions. Depe nding on the nature of these interactions, they may imply the spontaneous formation of social conventions or the birth of social cooperation, but also their suddenbreakdown. This can end in deadly crowd disasters or tragedies of the commons (such as finan cial crises or environmental destruction). Furthermore, we demonstrate that classical modeling approaches (such as representative agent models)do not provide a sufficient understanding of the self-organization in social systems resulting from individual i nteractions. The consideration of randomness, spatial or network interdependencies, and nonlinear feedback effects turnsout to be crucial to get fundamental insights into how social patterns and dynamics emerge. Given the explanation of sometimes counter- intuitive phenomena resulting from these features and their combination, our evolutionary modelingapproach appears to be powerful and insightful. The chapters of this book range from a discussion of the modeling strategy for socio-economic systems over ex perimental issues up the right way of doing agent-based modeling. Wefurthermore discuss applications ranging from pedestrian and crowd dynamics over opinion formation, coordination, and cooperation up

Note:The prevalence of imperfect structures, externalities, and imperfect information in existing market systems prevents the marketfrom serving asan efficient mechanism for resource allocation. In the presence ofsuch failures,optimization of economic act ivities provides an effective remedial measure. Cooperative optimization suggests the possibility of socially optimal and individually rational solutions to decision problems involving strategic action overtime however,to guarantee that cooperation will l ast throughout the agreement period,the stringent condition ofsubgame consistencyis required. This textbook presents a treatise on subgame consistent economicoptimization,developing game-theoretic optimization techniquesto establish the foundation for an effective policy menu to tackle sub-optimalcircumstancesthat the conventional market mechanism fails to resolve.Topics coveredinclude: * dynamic optimization * group optimality and individual rationality * time (optimal-trajectory-subgame) consistent econ omic optimization * dynamic economic optimization under uncertainty and subgame consistency *dynamically stable joint ventures * collaborative environmental management * discrete-time subgame consistent economic optimization. This is the first bookto thor oughly addressthe topic of subgame consistent economicoptimization.It will be of particular interest as a research reference forgame theorists, economists, mathematicians, policy makers, and corporate planners. With ample problems and exercises, it is als oauseful textforgraduate students in game theory

Note:Heavy-tailed probability distributions are an important component in the modelingof many stochastic systems. They are frequently used to accurately model inputs and outputs of computer and data networks and service facilitiessuch as call centers. The y are an essential for describingrisk processes in finance and also for insurance premia pricing, and such distributions occur naturally in models of epidemiological spread. The class includes distributionswith power law tails such asthe Pareto, as well a s the lognormal and certain Weibull distributions. This monograph defines the classes oflong-tailed and subexponential distributions in one dimension and provides a complete andcomprehensive description of their properties. New results are presented in a simple, coherent and systematic way. This leads to a comprehensive exposition of tail properties of sums of independent random variables whose distributionsbelong to the long-tailed and subexponential class. The book includes adiscussion of and references to contemporary areas of applications and also contains preliminary mathematicalmaterialwhich makes the book self contained.Modelers in the fields of finance, insurance, network science and environmental studies will find this book to be an essential ref erence

Title:The Second Law of Economics [electronic resource] Energy, Entropy, and the Origins of Wealth
Author(s): Reiner Kmmel

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:Spatial Statistics and Modeling [electronic resource]
Author(s): Carlo Gaetan
Xavier Guyon
Date:2010
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Spatial statistics are useful in subjects as diverse as climatology, ecology, economics, environmental and earth sciences, epidemiology, image analysis and more. This book covers the best-known spatial models for three types ofspatial data: geostatis tical data (stationarity, intrinsic models, variograms, spatial regression and space-time models), areal data (Gibbs-Markov fields and spatial auto-regression) and point pattern data (Poisson, Cox, Gibbs andMarkov point processes). The level is relatively advanced, and the presentation concise but complete. The most important statistical methods and their asymptotic properties are described, including estimation in geostatistics,autocorrelation and second-order statistics, maximum likelihood methods, appr oximate inference using the pseudo-likelihood or Monte-Carlo simulations, statistics for point processes and Bayesian hierarchical models. A chapter isdevoted to Markov Chain Monte Carlo simulation (Gibbs sampler, Metropolis-Hastings algorithms and exact simulation). A large number of real examples are studied with R, and each chapter ends with a set of theoretical and appliedexercises. While a foundation in probability and mathematical statistics is assumed, three appendices introduce some necessary back ground. The book is accessible to senior undergraduate students with a solid math background and Ph.D.students in statistics. Furthermore, experienced statisticians and researchers in the above-mentioned fields will find the book valuable as a mathematica lly sound reference. This book is the English translation of Modlisation etStatistique Spatiales published by Springer in the series Mathmatiques & Applications, a series established by Socit de Mathmatiques Appliques et Industrielles (SMAI).

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This milestone extensive work combines the essentials of history biography, chronology, political and economic background with the observations, theories, principles, laws and equations that constitute the specifics ofscience. The 5800-page Encyclo pedia arises from the conviction that the optimal perspective on science is through the lens of history, setting aside traditional divisions of discipline and specialty, and rising above geopoliticalboundaries. Reaching from 4,200 BCE to the 21st century CE, the Encyclopedia relates (as the author himself puts it) not only who did it and when it was done but also precisely what was done. The author, Ari Ben-Menahem, surveys100 generations of great thinkers, offering 2070 detailed biographies of scientists , engineers, explorers and inventors, who left their mark on the history of science and technology. The span of coverage is all-encompassing:mathematics, philosophy, logic, physical and environmental sciences (including physics, chemistry, astronomy, eart h and space sciences and cosmology), life sciences (biology, medicine, physiology, botany, zoology and biochemistry),associated engineering disciplines, and the social sciences (among them economics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, linguistics and mo re). The six-volume Encyclopedia also includes 380 articles summarizing the time-line of ideas inthe leading fields of science, technology, mathematics and philosophy, plus useful tables, figures and photos, and 20 Science Progress Reports detailing scien tific setbacks. Interspersed throughout are quotations, gathered fromthe wit and wisdom of sages, savants and scholars throughout the ages from antiquity to modern times

Note:The construction of mathematical models is an essential scientific activity. Mathematics has long been associated with developments in the exact sciences and engineering, but more recently mathematical modelling has been used toinvestigate complex sy stems that arise in many other fields. The contributors to this book demonstrate the application of mathematics to modern research topics in ecology and environmental science, health and medicine, phylogeneticsand neural networks, theoretical chemistry, e conomics and management. The reader will find some review papers outlining current research directions in hot topics such as pattern formation and applications to medicine, and more targetedresearch papers on current developments in the various discipline s included. Both should provide insight and inspiration for further work on these subjects. The extensive relevant literature cited in some of the survey expositoryarticles is another feature

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The statistical analysis of extreme data is important for various disciplines, including hydrology, insurance, finance, engineering and environmental sciences. This book provides a self-contained introduction to the parametricmodeling, exploratory an alysis and statistical interference for extreme values. The entire text of this third edition has been thoroughly updated and rearranged to meet the new requirements. Additional sections and chapters, elaboratedon more than 100 pages, are particularly con cerned with topics like dependencies, the conditional analysis and the multivariate modeling of extreme data. Parts IIII about the basic extreme value methodology remain unchanged to somelarger extent, yet notable are, e.g., the new sections about An Over view of Reduced-Bias Estimation (co-authored by M.I. Gomes), The Spectral Decomposition Methodology, and About Tail Independence (co-authored by M. Frick),and the new chapter about Extreme Value Statistics of Dependent Random Variables (co-authored by H. Drees).

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

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Operations Research emerged as a quantitative approach to problem-solving in World War II. Its founders, who were physicists, mathematicians, and engineers, quickly found peace-time uses for this new field. Moreover, we can saythat Operations Researc h (OR) was born in the same incubator as computer science, and through the years, it has spawned many new disciplines, including systems engineering, health care management, and transportation science.Fundamentally, Operations Research crosses discipline domains to seek solutions on a range of problems and benefits diverse disciplines from finance to bioengineering. Many disciplines routinely use OR methods. Many scientificresearchers, engineers, and others will find the methodological presentations in th is book useful and helpful in their problem-solving efforts. ORs strengths are modeling, analysis, and algorithm design. It provides a quantitativefoundation for a broad spectrum of problems, from economics to medicine, from environmental control to sport s, from e-commerce to computational geometry. The primary purpose of TUTORIALS ON EMERGING METHODOLOGIES AND APPLICATIONS INOPERATIONS RESEARCH is to provide a reference for practitioners and academics who seek a clear, concise presentation of developing methodologies, hence providing themselves with the capability to apply these methods to new problems.The field of Operations Research is always changing. Its changes are driven by the technology it uses and that it extends, and the applications that it af fects. Relevant changes in the field have a permanent effect on the conduct of ORand are vital to anyone who wants to be current in the field. Each chapter presents a new developing methodology in Operations Research. Each chapter examines each topic with clarity and depth, and organizes the examination around thefollowing questions: (1) What the developing methodology basically is about? (2) Why is it important? and (3) Where can I learn more?
