Note:This book focuses on a development of optimal, flexible, and efficient models and algorithms for cell formation in group technology. Its main aim is to provide a reliable tool that can be used by managers and engineers to designmanufacturing cells ba sed on their own preferences and constraints imposed by a particular manufacturing system. This tool could potentially lower production costs by minimizing other costs in a number of areas, thereby increasingprofit in a manufacturing system. In the volume , the cell formation problem is considered in a systematic and formalized way, and several models are proposed, both heuristic and exact. The models are based on general clusteringproblems, and are flexible enough to allow for various objectives and const raints. The authors also provide results of numerical experiments involving both artificial data from academic papers in the field and real manufacturing datato certify the appropriateness of the models proposed. The book was intended to suit the broadest possible audience, and thus all algorithmic details are given in a detailed description with multiple numerical examples and informalexplanations are provided for the theoretical results. In addition to managers and industrial engineers, this book is int ended for academic researchers and students. It will also be attractive to many theoreticians, since it addressesmany open problems in computer science and bioinformatics

Title:Iris Runge [electronic resource] : A Life at the Crossroads of Mathematics, Science, and Industry
Author(s): Renate Tobies
Date:2012
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book concerns the origins of mathematical problem solving at the internationally active Osram and Telefunken Corporations during the golden years of broadcasting and electron tube research. The woman scientist Iris Runge,who received an interdis ciplinary education at the University of Gttingen, was long employed as the sole mathematical authority at these companies in Berlin. It will be shown how mathematical connections were made between statisticsand quality control, and between physical-chemi cal models and the actual problems of mass production. The organization of industrial laboratories, the relationship between theoretical and experimental work, and the role ofmathematicians in these settings will also be explained. By investigating the so cial, economic, and political conditions that unfolded from the time of the German Empire until the end of the Second World War, the book hopes to build abridge between specialized fields mathematics and engineering and the general culture of a particul ar era. It hopes, furthermore, to build a bridge between the history of science and industry, on the one hand, and the fields ofGender and Womens Studies on the other. Finally, by examining the life and work of numerous industrial researchers, insight wil l be offered into the conditions that enabled a woman to achieve a prominent professional position duringa time when women were typically excluded from the scientific workforce

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

Note:Aerogels are the lightest solids known. Up to 1000 times lighter than glass and with a density as low as only four times that of air, they show very high thermal, electrical and acoustic insulation values and hold many entries inGuinness World Record s. Originally based on silica, R&D efforts have extended this class of materials to non-silicate inorganic oxides, natural and synthetic organic polymers, carbon, metal and ceramic materials, etc. Composite systemsinvolving polymer-crosslinked aerogels an d interpenetrating hybrid networks have been developed and exhibit remarkable mechanical strength and flexibility. Even more exotic aerogels based on clays, chalcogenides, phosphides, quantumdots, and biopolymers such as chitosan are opening new applicati ons for the construction, transportation, energy, defense and healthcare industries. Applications in electronics, chemistry, mechanics, engineering, energy production andstorage, sensors, medicine, nanotechnology, military and aerospace, oil and gas recov ery, thermal insulation and household uses are being developed with an estimated annual market growth rate of around 70% until 2015. The AerogelsHandbook summarizes state-of-the-art developments and processing of inorganic, organic, and composite aerogels , including the most important methods of synthesis, characterization as well as their typical applications and theirpossible market impact. Readers will find an exhaustive overview of all aerogel materials known today, their fabrication, upscaling aspect s, physical and chemical properties, and most recent advances towards applications and commercialproducts, some of which are commercially available today.

Note:Global warming, shortage of low-cost oil resources and the increasing demand for energy are currently controlling the world's economic expansion while often opposing desires for sustainable and peaceful development. In thiscontext, atomic energy sati sfactorily fulfills the criteria of low carbon gas production and high overall yield. However, in the absence of industrial fast-breeders the use of nuclear fuel is not optimal, and the production of highactivity waste materials is at a maximum. These are the principal reasons for the development of a new, fourth generation of nuclear reactors, minimizing the undesirable side-effects of current nuclear energy production technologywhile increasing yields by increasing operation temperatures and opening the way for the industrial production of hydrogen through the decomposition of water. The construction and use of such reactors is hindered by several factors,including performance limitations of known structural materials, particularly if the life of the pr ojected systems had to extend over the periods necessary to achieve low costs (at least 60 years). This book collects lectures andseminars presented at the homonymous NATO ASI held in autumn 2007 at the Institut dEtudes Scientifiques in Cargse, France. Th e adopted approach aims at improving and coordinating basic knowledge in materials science andengineering with specific areas of condensed matter physics, the physics of particle/matter interaction and of radiation damage. It is our belief that this metho dology is crucially conditioning the development and the industrialproduction of new structural materials capable of coping with the requirements of these future reactors

Note:This textbook provides a comprehensive modeling, reformulation and optimization approach for solving production planning and related supply chain planning problems, covering topics from a basic introduction to planning systems,mixed integer programmi ng (MIP) models and algorithms through the advanced description of mathematical results in polyhedral combinatorics required to solve these problems. This book addresses the solution of real life or industrialproduction planning problems (involving comple x production structures with multiple production stages) using a MIP modeling and reformulation approach. It is based on close to twenty years of research in which the authors have played asignificant role. One of the goals of this book is to allow non-ex pert readers, students in business, engineering, applied mathematics and computer science to solve such problems using standard modeling tools and MIP software. Toachieve this the book provides a unique collection of reformulation results, integrating the m into a comprehensive modeling and reformulation approach, as well as an easy to use problem-solving library. Moreover this approach isdemonstrated through a series of real life case studies, exercises and detailed illustrations. Graduate students and re searchers in operations research, management, science and applied mathematics wishing to gain a deeper understandingof the formulations and mathematics underlying this approach will find this book useful because of its detailed treatment of the polyhedral structure of the basic lot-sizing problems and simple mixed integer sets that arise in thedecomposition of more complicated problems. This book will allow the reader to improve formulations of non-standard MIP models and produce state-of-the-art models a nd algorithms

Note:Hydrocarbon exploration and production incorporate great technology challenges for the oil and gas industry. In order to meet the world's future demand for oil and gas, further technological advance is needed, which in turnrequires research across mu ltiple disciplines, including mathematics, geophysics, geology, petroleum engineering, signal processing, and computer science. This book addresses important aspects and fundamental concepts in hydrocarbonexploration and production. Moreover, new developm ents and recent advances in the relevant research areas are discussed, whereby special emphasis is placed on mathematical methods and modelling. The book reflects the multi-disciplinarycharacter of the hydrocarbon production workflow, ranging from seismic data imaging, seismic analysis and interpretation and geological model building, to numerical reservoir simulation. Various challenges concerning the productionworkflow are discussed in detail. The thirteen chapters of this joint work, authored by intern ational experts from academic and industrial institutions, include survey papers of expository character as well as original researcharticles. Large parts of the material presented in this book were developed between November 2000 and April 2004 through t he European research and training network NetAGES, Network for Automated Geometry Extraction from Seismic.The new methods described here are currently being implemented as software tools at Schlumberger Stavanger Research, one of the world's largest servi ce providers to the oil industry
