Author(s)Er??etin, ??efika ??ule;A????kal??n, ??uay Nilhan;Vajzovi??, Emir
PublicationCham, Springer International Publishing, 2021.
DescriptionXII, 315 p. 43 illus., 18 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book analyzes a range of new developments in various fields concerning the concepts of chaos and complexity theory. The proceedings of the 7th International Symposium on Chaos, Complexity and Leadership feature newly developed concepts involving various research methodologies for identifying chaos and complexity in different fields of the sciences and leadership. In addition, it explores chaotic and complex systems from all fields of knowledge in order to stake a claim of prevalence of compatibility between knowledge fields. Particular emphasis is placed on exploring non-linearity in order to open a discussion on new approaches to and perspectives on chaos, complexity and leadership. Readers will find coverage of important events that have recently taken place in our world, regardless of whether they were social, political, economic or scientific in nature. The book explores diverse aspects of and issues related to the effects of chaos and complexity in the world; discusses the application of nonlinear dynamics in order to arrive at transformational policies; and offers projections of tomorrow???s world using an interdisciplinary approach. Though primarily intended for readers with an interest in nonlinear science, thanks to its focus on the application of chaos and complexity to other disciplines, the book appeals to a broad readership

TitleInstrumentation Between Science, State and Industry
Author(s)Joerges, B;Shinn, T
PublicationDordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2001.
DescriptionX, 272 p. 5 illus : online resource
Abstract Notethese. In this book, we appropriate their conception of research-technology, and ex?? tend it to many other phenomena which are less stable and less localized in time and space than the Zeeman/Cotton situation. In the following pages, we use the concept for instances where research activities are orientated primarily toward technologies which facilitate both the production of scientific knowledge and the production of other goods. In particular, we use the tenn for instances where instruments and meth?? ods?? traverse numerous geographic and institutional boundaries; that is, fields dis?? tinctly different and distant from the instruments' and methods' initial focus. We suggest that instruments such as the ultra-centrifuge, and the trajectories of the men who devise such artefacts, diverge in an interesting way from other fonns of artefacts and careers in science, metrology and engineering with which students of science and technology are more familiar. The instrument systems developed by re?? search-technologists strike us as especially general, open-ended, and flexible. When tailored effectively, research-technology instruments potentially fit into many niches and serve a host of unrelated applications. Their multi-functional character distin?? guishes them from many other devices which are designed to address specific, nar?? rowly defined problems in a circumscribed arena in and outside of science. Research?? technology activities link universities, industry, public and private research or me?? trology establishments, instrument-making finns, consulting companies, the military, and metrological agencies. Research-technology practitioners do not follow the career path of the traditional academic or engineering professional

TitleEconophysics of Systemic Risk and Network Dynamics
Author(s)Frederic Abergel (ed.);Bikas K. Chakrabarti (ed.);Anirban Chakraborti (ed.);Asim Ghosh (ed.)
PublicationMilano, Springer, 2013.
DescriptionVIII, 300 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThe primary goal of the book is to present the ideas and research findings of active researchers such as physicists, economists, mathematicians and financial engineers working in the field of Econophysics, who have undertaken the task of modeling and analyzing systemic risk, network dynamics and other topics. Of primary interest in these studies is the aspect of systemic risk, which has long been identified as a potential scenario in which financial institutions trigger a dangerous contagion mechanism, spreading from the financial economy to the real economy. This type of risk, long confined to the monetary market, has spread considerably in the recent past, culminating in the subprime crisis of 2008. As such, understanding and controlling systemic risk has become an extremely important societal and economic challenge. The Econophys-Kolkata VI conference proceedings are dedicated to addressing a number of key issues involved. Several leading researchers in these fields report on their recent work and also review contemporary literature on the subject

TitleEconophysics of Agent-Based Models
Author(s)Frederic Abergel (ed.);Hideaki Aoyama (ed.);Bikas K. Chakrabarti (ed.);Anirban Chakraborti (ed.);Ghosh, Asim
PublicationCham, Springer International Publishing, 2014.
DescriptionVIII, 302 p. 91 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteThe primary goal of this book is to present the research findings and conclusions of physicists, economists, mathematicians and financial engineers working in the field of "Econophysics" who have undertaken agent-based modelling, comparison with empirical studies and related investigations. Most standard economic models assume the existence of the representative agent, who is ???perfectly rational??? and applies the utility maximization principle when taking action. One reason for this is the desire to keep models mathematically tractable: no tools are available to economists for solving non-linear models of heterogeneous adaptive agents without explicit optimization. In contrast, multi-agent models, which originated from statistical physics considerations, allow us to go beyond the prototype theories of traditional economics involving the representative agent. This book is based on the Econophys-Kolkata VII Workshop, at which many such modelling efforts were presented. In the book, leading researchers in their fields report on their latest work, consider recent developments and review the contemporary literature

TitleElementi di management dei programmi spaziali
Author(s)Spagnulo, Marcello
PublicationMilano, Springer Milan, 2012.
DescriptionXVII, 265 pagg : online resource
Abstract NoteLa realizzazione e il lancio nello spazio di satelliti o sonde attraverso missili o navette spaziali sono un esempio di attivit?? industriale di enorme complessit?? e di lungo periodo. Lo sviluppo di un programma spaziale prevede la realizzazione di vari sistemi costituenti: il segmento spaziale, cio?? i lanciatori per l???accesso allo Spazio, i satelliti o le sonde, le infrastrutture spaziali abitate da astronauti oppure robotizzate; e il segmento di terra che consente agli operatori sulla terra di controllare i sistemi nello spazio e di fruire delle applicazioni derivanti dal loro uso. Il settore ?? di per s?? peculiare dato l???ambiente extra-atmosferico ove si troveranno ad operare astronauti o sonde robotizzate, pertanto la manifattura dei sistemi spaziali ?? una pratica a met?? strada tra la scienza esatta e l???artigianato di elevatissima qualit??. Le metodologie e i processi realizzativi dei programmi spaziali hanno per?? avuto il pregio nel passato di costituire, sin dagli anni ???60, un modello di riferimento per altri settori industriali proprio a causa della loro unicit?? tecnologica e produttiva. E oggi le metodologie di gestione dei programmi spaziali sono standardizzate e consolidate. Gli elementi trattati in questo libro intendono avvicinare il lettore alle specificit?? gestionali della concezione, del finanziamento e della messa in essere di un programma spaziale, una tra le pi?? complesse attivit?? umane influenzate da fattori storici, scientifici, economici e politici

PublicationDordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 1985.
DescriptionXI, 613 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThe European Community's Indirect Action Research Programme on the Safety of Thermal Water Reactors had as main obj ectives to execute useful fundamental research, complementary and confirmatory to on-going work in national programmes, and to improve collaboration and exchange of inform?? ation between laboratories in the Member States. The Seminar was aimed to report on work performed during the last five years and to identify useful further research areas with a tentative assessment of the state of the art for future work in certain issues of LWR-safety. The results obtained in 33 research projects executed in different national laboratories of the European Community were presented, evaluated and discussed, together with a number of invited papers on topics related to the research programme. Topics covered mainly within 3 distinct research areas or sub-programmes: Research Area A: The loss of coolant accident (LOCA) and the func?? tioning and performance of the emergency core cooling system (ECCS). Fundamental work on thermalhydraulics and heat transfer during refill and reflood of an uncovered core after a LOCA. Research Area B: The protection of nuclear power plants against external gas cloud explosions. Study of the impact on plant structure and systems of external explosions of dense combustible gas clouds due to accidental releases of hydro?? carbons in the vicinity of the plant. Research Area C: The release and distribution of radioactive fission products in the atmosphere following a reactor accident

TitleExplaining Technical Change in a Small Country : The Finnish National Innovation System
Author(s)Vuori, Synn??ve;Vuorinen, Pentti
PublicationHeidelberg, 1. Imprint: Physica 2. Physica-Verlag HD, 1994.
DescriptionXI, 215 p : online resource
Abstract NoteTechnical change is produced by the interaction of a large number of technical, economic, social and institutional factors. One of the starting points is the concept of national innovation systems. The aim of this book is to take Finland as an example illustrating the challenges faced by small countries. The characteristics and performance of the Finnish national innovation system of the last couple of decades are analyzed. The Finnish experience is put in a broader context by comparing it with a few other countries. The development paths possible in the near future are assessed. According to the results, many problems remain despite favourable developments in several technology indicators. The rigidities of the social institutions created during the 1970s and 1980s seem to have become obstacles for economic and technological development. There are fairly large differences between the countries studied, and even between the culturally and historically close Nordic countries. However,Finland and Sweden seem to share the same kind of encompassing collective risk-sharing systems, which may have detrimental effects on, for instance, incentives related to innovativeness. Increasing globalisation requires further development of the national system of innovation. Technology policy must be seen as one part of more encompassing social and economic policies, and the role of factors such as well-functioning institutions, appropriate education and sound incentive systems is highly important. The papers of this book are written by experts of various research disciplines. They reflect the respective views on the issue how technical change in Finland can be explained. It is also discussed how Finland fares in comparison to Denmark, Sweden, Japan and the United States

TitlePhysics and National Socialism : An Anthology of Primary Sources
Author(s)Hentschel, Klaus
PublicationBasel, 1. Birkh??user Basel 2. Imprint: Birkh??user, 1996.
Description406 p : online resource
Abstract Note1 Aim and General Description of the Anthology The purpose of this anthology is to introduce the English speaking public to the wide spectrum of texts authored predominently by physicists portraying the ac?? tual and perceived role of physics in the Nazi state. Up to now no broad and well?? balanced documentation of German physics during this time has been available in English, despite the significant role physics has played both politically (e. g. , in weaponry planning) and ideologically (e. g. , in the controversy over the value of theoretical ('Jewish') vs. experimental ('Aryan') physics), and even though prominent figures like the scientist-philosopher and emigre Albert Einstein and the controversial nuclear physicist Werner Heisenberg have become household names. This anthology will attempt to bridge this gap by presenting contempo?? rary documents and eye-witness accounts by the physicists themselves. Authors were chosen to represent the various political opinions and specialties within the physics community, omitting some of the more readily accessible texts by leading physicists (e. g. , Einstein, Heisenberg, Lenard) in favor of those by less well-known but nonetheless important figures (e. g. , Finkelnburg, Max Wien, Ramsauer). In this way we hope not only to circumvent the constricted 'Great Men' approach to history but also to offer a broader picture of the activities and conflicts within the field and the effects of the political forces exerted upon them

TitleCommunications After ad2000
Author(s)Davies, D.E.N;Hilsum, C;Rudge, A.W
PublicationNew York, NY, Springer US, 1993.
DescriptionXIV, 253 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThe Royal Society has initiated a series of meetings to discuss the effect advances in technology will have on our way of life in the next century. The two previous meetings have been concerned with housing and waste treat?? ment. The subject of the third meeting, communications, is no less critical to life, but it offers particular problems and uncertainties, especially in the forecasting of future trends. Indeed, some have doubted if there can be profitable debate on long-term development in such a fast-moving field. The importance of the topic justifies an attempt, and the reader will judge whether the authors have met the challenge. Communications today bears little resemblance to that of the 1970s. Then we knew about satellites and optical fibres, and we had seen lasers and silicon chips, but most of us could never imagine the potential of the new technologies within our grasp. We had also not assessed the thirst of the popUlation for more and better ways of talking and writing to each other. It was the combination of market need and technical capability that created the com?? munications revolution
