Risk and Social Theory in Environmental Management by Thomas Measham, Stewart Lockie
2012 | ISBN: 0643104127 | English | 232 pages | PDF | 12 MB

Risk and Social Theory in Environmental Management
marks a timely contribution, given that environmental management is no longer just about protecting pristine ecosystems and endangered species from anthropogenic harm; it is about calculating and managing the risks to human communities of rapid environmental and technological change.

First, the book provides a solid foundation of the social theory underpinning the nature of risk, then presents a rethinking of key concepts and methods in order to take more seriously the biophysical embeddedness of human society. Second, it presents a rich set of case studies from Australia and around the world, drawing on the latest applied research conducted by leading research institutions. In so doing, the book identifies the tensions that arise from decision making over risk and uncertainty in a contested policy environment, and provides crucial insights for addressing on-the-ground problems in an integrated way.

* First volume to address environmental risk from a social science perspective
* Latest theoretical developments
* In depth case studies of contemporary issues (e.g. climate change, water shortages)

A Concise Text on Advanced Linear Algebra by Yisong Yang
2015 | ISBN: 1107087511, 1107456819 | English | 331 pages | PDF | 2 MB

A Concise Text on Advanced Linear Algebra
This engaging textbook for advanced undergraduate students and beginning graduates covers the core subjects in linear algebra. The author motivates the concepts by drawing clear links to applications and other important areas, such as differential topology and quantum mechanics. The book places particular emphasis on integrating ideas from analysis wherever appropriate. For example, the notion of determinant is shown to appear from calculating the index of a vector field which leads to a self-contained proof of the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra, and the Cayley-Hamilton theorem is established by recognizing the fact that the set of complex matrices of distinct eigenvalues is dense. The material is supplemented by a rich collection of over 350 mostly proof-oriented exercises, suitable for students from a wide variety of backgrounds. Selected solutions are provided at the back of the book, making it suitable for self-study as well as for use as a course text.

The Theory of Intermolecular Forces, 2nd Edition

FREEDownload : The Theory of Intermolecular Forces, 2nd Edition

The Theory of Intermolecular Forces, 2nd Edition by Anthony Stone
English | 2013 | ISBN: 0199672393 | ISBN-13: 9780199672394 | 352 pages | PDF | 2,6 MB
The theory of intermolecular forces has advanced very greatly in recent years. It has become possible to carry out accurate calculations of intermolecular forces for molecules of useful size, and to apply the results to important practical applications such as understanding protein structure and function, and predicting the structures of molecular crystals.

The Theory of Intermolecular Forces, 2nd Edition
The Theory of Intermolecular Forces sets out the mathematical techniques that are needed to describe and calculate intermolecular interactions and to handle the more elaborate mathematical models. It describes the methods that are used to calculate them, including recent developments in the use of density functional theory and symmetry-adapted perturbation theory. The use of higher-rank multipole moments to describe electrostatic interactions is explained in both Cartesian and spherical tensor formalism, and methods that avoid the multipole expansion are also discussed. Modern ab initio perturbation theory methods for the calculation of intermolecular interactions are discussed in detail, and methods for calculating properties of molecular clusters and condensed matter for comparison with experiment are surveyed.

Quasi-Gas Dynamic Equations

FREEDownload : Quasi-Gas Dynamic Equations

Tatiana G. Elizarova, "Quasi-Gas Dynamic Equations"
2009 | pages: 291 | ISBN: 3642002919 | PDF | 7,5 mb

Quasi-Gas Dynamic Equations
The monograph is devoted to modern mathematical models and numerical methods for solving gas- and fluid-dynamic problems based on them. Two interconnected mathematical models generalizing the Navier-Stokes system are presented; they differ from the Navier-Stokes system by additional dissipative terms with a small parameter as a coefficient. The new models are called the quasi-gas-dynamic and quasi-hydrodynamic equations. Based on these equations, effective finite-difference algorithms for calculating viscous non-stationary flows are constructed and examples of numerical computations are presented. The universality, the efficiency, and the exactness of the algorithms constructed are ensured by the fulfillment of integral conservation laws and the theorem on entropy balance for them.
