Author(s): Jol Blot
Nala Hayek
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:In this bookthe authors takea rigorous look at the infinite-horizon discrete-time optimalcontrol theory from the viewpoint of Pontryagins principles. Several Pontryagin principles are described which govern systems andvarious criteria which define th e notions of optimality, along with a detailed analysis of how each Pontryagin principle relate to each other. The Pontryagin principle is examined in a stochastic setting and results are given whichgeneralize Pontryagins principles to multi-criteria prob lems. Infinite-Horizon Optimal Control in the Discrete-Time Frameworkis aimed toward researchers and PhD students in various scientific fields such as mathematics,applied mathematics, economics, management, sustainable development (such as, of fisheries a nd of forests), and Bio-medical sciences who are drawn to infinite-horizon discrete-time optimal control problems

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The Earth's average temperature has risen by 1.4F over the past century, and computer models project that it will rise much more over the next hundred years, with significant impacts on weather, climate, and human society. Manyclimate scientists attr ibute these increases to the buildup of greenhouse gases produced by the burning of fossil fuels and to the anthropogenic production of short-lived climate pollutants. Climate Change Modeling Methodologies:Selected Entries from the Encyclopedia of Sustain ability Science and Technology provides readers with an introduction to the tools and analysis techniques used by climate change scientists to interpret the role of these forcing agentson climate. Readers will also gain a deeper understanding of the stren gths and weaknesses of these models and how to test and assess them. The contributions include a glossary of key terms and a concise definition of the subjectfor each topic, as well as recommendations for sources of more detailed information. Features aut horitative, peer-reviewed contributions on the development and use ofcontemporary methods in climate change science Provides insightinto the construction, assessment, and testing of climate models Covers individual component models for the atmosphere, oce an, land, and ice, and discusses their contribution to an example of climate change in monsoon systems Discusseshow climate change models can shed light on the changing climate of the past and on possible shifts in the future

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:An Indispensable Truth [electronic resource] How Fusion Power Can Save the Planet
Author(s): Francis F Chen
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:Both global warming and oil shortage can be solved by controlled fusion, a clean power source that will serve mankind for millennia. The idea of hydrogen fusion as well as its difficulties are presented in non-technicallanguage to dispel the notion t hat fusion is always 50 years away. This book also summarizes the evidence for climate change and explains the principles of both fossil and green energy sources to show that fusion is the bestalternative for central-station power in the near term as well as the far future. Praise for An Indispensable Truth: How Fusion Power Can Save the Planet: In this study Professor Chen outlines the underlying physics, recent progressin achieving advanced plasmas and magnetic confinement, and hopes for the future. He recognizes the difficulties that remain in engineering a fusion reactor, but he remains optimistic regarding ultimate success, yet fearful of theconsequences were we to fail.- James R. Schlesinger, former Chairman, Atomic Energy Commission Director, Centr al Intelligence Agency Secretary of Defense and Secretary of Energy With lots of detail and examples, Chen brings thetechnical topic of fusion to life, making the book a great read for scientists and nonscientists alike.- Representative Rush Holt (D-NJ) P rofessor Chen has opened the door to energy survival for our globe. His insightful analysismakes the case for fusion energy, and he conveys both its complexity and its promise. This book is a must for all those who are concerned about the energy future of our species.- Raymond L Orbach, former Undersecretary for Science,U.S. Department of Energy This is an important book for anyone who wishes to understand the greatest challenge we face. Frank Chen makes the science of fusion and energy clear, compelling, and hugely enjoyable.- Steven Cowley,Director and CEO, Culham Centre for Fusion Energy, United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority

Title:Materials Issues for Generation IV Systems [electronic resource] : Status, Open Questions and Challenges

Date:2008
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
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
