Note:This book project was initiated at The Tribute Workshop in Honour of Gunnar Sparr and the follow-up workshop Inequalities, Interpolation, Non-commutative Analysis, Non-commutative Geometry and Applications, held at the Centre forMathematical Sciences , Lund University in May and November of 2008. The resulting book is dedicated in celebration of Gunnar Sparr's sixty-fifth anniversary and more than forty years of exceptional service to mathematics and itsapplications in engineering and technology, math ematics and engineering education, as well as interdisciplinary, industrial and international cooperation. This book presents new advances in several areas of mathematics andengineering mathematics including applications in modern technology, engineering and life sciences. Thirteen high-quality chapters put forward many new methods and results, reviews of up to date research and open directions andproblems for future research. A special chapter by Gunnar Sparr and Georg Lindgren contains a historical acc ount and important aspects of engineering mathematics research and education, and the implementation of the highly successfuleducation programme in Engineering Mathematics at Lund Institute of Technology, where not only the mathematical sciences have play ed a role. This book will serve as a source of inspiration for a broad spectrum of researchers andresearch students

Title:The Wondrous Universe [electronic resource] Creation without Creator?
Author(s): Gerhard Brner
Date:2011
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The world as it is viewed from modern physics and cosmology has many strange and unexpected features. Often these are in stark contrast with our everyday experience or our preconceptions, such as the concept of space and time asfinite and changeable. Nevertheless it is this strange world which is the fundamental basis of our existence. Therefore modern science also has a few things to say about the age-old questions: Who are we? Where do we come from? Where are we going? The author, an experienced s cientist and teacher, presents the knowledge that we have about our worldfor non-experts. He takes us on a journey through cosmology and the quantum world of elementary particles. Andhe sketches the impact of the insights gained into philosophical assumpt ions and religious beliefs in these disciplines. In the end he asks the speculative question whether there is something beyond the limits of the natural sciences.Gerhard Brner is a Professor of Physics at the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich and co nducts research on the early universe and dark matter at the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics in Garching near Munich. He received hisPhD for a thesis on particle physics under the supervision of Werner Heisenberg and Hans-Peter Drr. Professor Brner is the author of the successful graduate textbook The Early Universe (published by Springer and now in its 4thedition), as well as of several popular science books on cosmology. In 2009 he received the Chinese Academy of Sciences Award for International C ooperation in Science and Technology (together with Prof. Maurice-Roger Bonnet). In 2010he received the Friendship Award, and in January 2011 the Chinese governments National Award for Cooperation in Science and Technology, the highest honor bestowed on f oreigners

Title:Nuclear Power and Energy Security [electronic resource]
Author(s): Samuel A Apikyan
David J Diamond
Date:2010
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:World energy consumption has grown dramatically over the past few decades. This growth in energy demand will be driven by large increases in both economic growth and world population coupled with rising living standards inrapidly growing countries. T he last years, we routinely hear about a renaissance of nuclear energy. The recognition that nuclear power is vital to global energy security in the 21st century has been growing for some time. Themore we look to the future, the more we can expect countri es to be considering the potential benefits that expanding nuclear power has to offer for the global environment and for economic growth, IAEA Director General MohamedElBaradei said in advance of a gathering of 500 nuclear power experts assembled in Mosco w for the International Conference on Fifty Years of Nuclear Power - the Next Fifty Years. But such a renaissance is not a single-valued andsure thing. Legitimate four unresolved questions remain about high relative costs perceived adverse safety, environ mental, and health effects potential security risks stemming from proliferation and unresolved challenges inlong-term management of nuclear wastes. Failure to answer these questions adequately could imperil the nuclear revival so many have proclaimed is n ight. This proceeding examines the status and future of nuclear power because of abelief that this technology is an important option for the regional and the world countries to meet the future energy needs without emitting carbon dioxide and other atmosph eric pollutants. The objectives, addressed to government,industry, and academic leaders, discusses the interrelated technical, economic, environmental and political challenges facing a significant increase in the global nuclear power utilization over the next half century and what might bedone to overcome those challenges
