Die Zukunft unserer Energieversorgung Eine Analyse aus mathematisch-naturwissenschaftlicher Sicht

Das Buch behandelt die Energie als Mittel zur Entropieerzeugung, welche die Voraussetzung für alle auf der Erde ablaufenden Prozesse ist. Die verfügbaren Energieträger werden unterschieden in erneuerbar und nichterneuerbar. Für letztere wird ihre Reichweite mithilfe mathematischer Modelle berechnet, wobei die Entwicklung der Bevölkerungszahlen und des Lebensstandards berücksichtigt werden.

Camera Networks: The Acquisition and Analysis of Videos overWide Areas

As networks of video cameras are put in in lots of functions like safety and surveillance, environmental tracking, catastrophe reaction, and assisted residing amenities, between others, photograph figuring out in digicam networks is changing into a major region of analysis and know-how improvement. there are various demanding situations that have to be addressed within the procedure.

Asymptotic Analysis for Functional Stochastic Differential Equations

This short treats dynamical structures that contain delays and random disturbances. The research is stimulated by means of a wide selection of structures in genuine lifestyles within which random noise needs to be considered and the impression of delays can't be overlooked. targeting such platforms which are defined by way of useful stochastic differential equations, this paintings makes a speciality of the examine of huge time habit, specifically, ergodicity.
