PublicationBerlin, Springer, 2008.
Description1 online resource (ix, 393 p.) : ill
Abstract NoteEach chapter in Managing Complexity focuses on analyzing real-world complex systems and transferring knowledge from the complex-systems sciences to applications in business, industry and society. The interdisciplinary contributions range from markets and production through logistics, traffic control, and critical infrastructures, up to network design, information systems, social conflicts and building consensus. They serve to raise readers' awareness concerning the often counter-intuitive behavior of complex systems and to help them integrate insights gained in complexity research into everyda

TitleComet/asteroid impacts and human society : an interdisciplinary approach
Author(s)Peter T. Bobrowsky (ed.);Hans Rickman () (ed.)
Edition1st ed
PublicationBerlin, Springer, 2007.
Description1 online resource (xxvi, 546 p.) : ill. (some col.), maps (some col.)
Abstract NoteIn 1908, an atmospheric explosion in northern Siberia released energy equivalent to 15 Mton of TNT. Can a comparable or larger NEO affect us again? When the next NEO strikes Earth will it be large enough to destroy a city? Will the climate change significantly? Can archaeology and anthropology provide insights into the expected cultural responses with NEO interactions? Does society have a true grasp of the actual risks involved? Is the Great Depression a good model for the economic collapse that could follow a NEO catastrophe? This volume provides a necessary link between various disciplines and comet/asteroid impacts
