TitleHow Should Humanity Steer the Future?
Author(s)Aguirre, Anthony;Foster, Brendan;Merali, Zeeya
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2016.
DescriptionVIII, 175 p. 14 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteThe fourteen award-winning essays in this volume discuss a range of novel ideas and controversial??topics that could decisively influence the course of human life on Earth.??Their??authors address, in accessible language,??issues as diverse as:??enabling our social systems to learn; research in biological??engineering and artificial intelligence; mending and??enhancing minds; improving the way we do, and teach, science; living in the??here and now; and the value of play. ?? The essays are enhanced versions of the prize-winning entries submitted to the Foundational Questions Institute (FQXi) essay competition in 2014. FQXi, catalyzes, supports, and disseminates research on questions at the foundations of physics and cosmology, particularly new frontiers and innovative ideas integral to a deep understanding of reality, but unlikely to be supported by conventional funding sources

TitleRadiation in Enclosures : Elliptic Boundary Value Problem
Author(s)Mbiock, Aristide;Weber, Roman
PublicationBerlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2000.
DescriptionXIII, 211 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThis graduate textbook is concerned with both the formulation and the solution of radiation heat transfer problems in enclosures. The book is essentially self-contained and includes a brief historical survey. The foundations are carefully discussed from the point of view of the exact mathematical basis of boundary value problems and their variational solutions as well as of the physical foundations. The computational methods developed by the authors are used in engineering applications. The combinaton of exact mathematical modelling with numerical skills makes this a unique textbook
