#### Klimawandel und die Frage der Gerechtigkeit

Diplomica Verlag 2011; US$ 32.02Hauptbeschreibung Die Temperaturen auf der Erde steigen. Weltweit sind die Folgen des Klimawandels in Gestalt von längeren Dürreperioden auf der einen Seite und höheren Überflutungsgefährdungen auf der anderen Seite zu spüren. Es ist mittlerweile wissenschaftlich erwiesen, dass diese Klimaveränderungen auf menschliches Handeln zurückzuführen sind.... more...

#### Quantum Mechanics in the Geometry of Space-Time

Springer Fachmedien 2011; US$ 49.95This book continues the fundamental work of Arnold Sommerfeld and David Hestenes formulating theoretical physics in terms of Minkowski space-time geometry. We see how the standard matrix version of the Dirac equation can be reformulated in terms of a real space-time algebra, thus revealing a geometric meaning for the "number i" in quantum... more...

#### Phase Transitions in Two-Dimensional Complex Plasmas

Springer 2011; US$ 129.00The two experimental studies reported in this thesis contribute important new knowledge about phase transitions in two-dimensional complex plasmas: in one case a determination of the coupling parameter (ratio of mean potential to mean kinetic energy of the particles in an ensemble), and in the other a detailed characterization of the non-equilibrium... more...

#### Greenhouse: Planning for Climate Change

CSIRO Publishing 1988; US$ 140.00This important book explores the sensitivity of Australia to possible climate change induced by the greenhouse effect. more...

#### Towards a Sustainable Asia

Springer 2012; US$ 139.00This series of books are the output of the research project called "Sustainable Development in Asia (SDA)", which was initiated by the Association of Academies of Sciences in Asia (AASA). They are comprised of one synthesis report, which entitled "Towards a Sustainable Asia: Green Transition and Innovation", and four thematic reports... more...

#### Climate Change and the Sustainable Use of Water Resources

Springer 2011; US$ 279.00The book explores the geo-chemical, physical, social and economic impacts of climate change on water supplies. It contains examples and case studies from a wide range of countries, and addresses the need to promote sustainable water use across the world. more...

#### A Concise Introduction to the Statistical Physics of Complex Systems

Springer 2011; US$ 49.95This concise primer (based on lectures given at summer schools on complex systems and on a masters degree course in complex systems modeling) will provide graduate students and newcomers to the field with the basic knowledge of the concepts and methods of statistical physics and its potential for application to interdisciplinary topics. Indeed, in... more...

#### Analytic Methods of Sound Field Synthesis

Springer 2012; US$ 159.00This book puts the focus on serving human listeners in the sound field synthesis although the approach can be also exploited in other applications such as underwater acoustics or ultrasonics. The author derives a fundamental formulation based on standard integral equations and the single-layer potential approach is identified as a useful tool in order... more...

#### Computation and Asymptotics

Springer 2012; US$ 49.95This book addresses the task of computation from the standpoint of asymptotic analysis and multiple scales that may be inherent in the system dynamics being studied. This is in contrast to the usual methods of numerical analysis and computation. The technical literature is replete with numerical methods such as Runge-Kutta approach and its variations,... more...

#### Singularities in Elliptic Boundary Value Problems and Elasticity and Their Connection with Failure Initiation

Springer 2011; US$ 149.00This introductory and self-contained book gathers as much explicit mathematical results on the linear-elastic and heat-conduction solutions in the neighborhood of singular points in two-dimensional domains, and singular edges and vertices in three-dimensional domains. These are presented in an engineering terminology for practical usage. The author... more...
