Strontium Contamination in the Environment (The Handbook of Environmental Chemistry)
Strontium Contamination in the Environment (The Handbook of Environmental Chemistry)

This book provides an authoritative review of the origin and extraction of strontium and its impact on the environment. It also presents the latest strontium decontamination and remediation strategies. Around the globe, nuclear power is being recognized as a major source of energy and is expected to play a crucial role in...

Hidden Unity in Nature's Laws
Hidden Unity in Nature's Laws
One of the paradoxes of the physical sciences is that as our knowledge has progressed, more and more diverse physical phenomena can be explained in terms of fewer underlying laws, or principles. In Hidden Unity, eminent physicist John Taylor puts many of these findings into historical perspective and documents how progress is made when unexpected,...
Memory Allocation Problems in Embedded Systems: Optimization Methods (ISTE)
Memory Allocation Problems in Embedded Systems: Optimization Methods (ISTE)

Embedded systems are everywhere in contemporary life and are supposed to make our lives more comfortable. In industry, embedded systems are used to manage and control complex systems (e.g. nuclear power plants, telecommunications and flight control) and they are also taking an important place in our daily activities (e.g. smartphones,...

Safety Design for Space Systems
Safety Design for Space Systems
Progress in space safety lies in the acceptance of safety design and engineering as an integral part of the design and implementation process for new space systems. Safety must be seen as the principle design driver of utmost importance from the outset of the design process, which is only achieved through a culture change that moves all...
A Theory of the Drone
A Theory of the Drone
Drone warfare has raised profound ethical and constitutional questions both in the halls of Congress and among the U.S. public. Not since debates over nuclear warfare has American military strategy been the subject of discussion in living rooms, classrooms, and houses of worship. Yet as this groundbreaking new work shows, the full...
Gauge Field Theories: An Introduction with Applications
Gauge Field Theories: An Introduction with Applications
Over the last two decades a revolution has taken place concerning the way physicists view the fundamental processes taking place in our universe. This revolution has its basis in the belief that all fundamental interactions are associated with a particularly beautiful and powerful kind of quantum field theory-a theory of local gauge fields. This...
Hydrogen and Fuel Cells: Emerging Technologies and Applications (Sustainable World)
Hydrogen and Fuel Cells: Emerging Technologies and Applications (Sustainable World)

The next several years will see a massive emergence of hydrogen fuel cells as an alterative energy option in both transportation and domestic use. The long-range expectation is that hydrogen will be used as a fuel, produced either from renewable energy, fossil, or nuclear sources, offering an environmentally acceptable and efficient source of...

The Next Wave in Computing, Optimization, and Decision Technologies
The Next Wave in Computing, Optimization, and Decision Technologies
Brown et al. (2004) (see also Reed 1994 and Skroch 2004) model the
completion of an adversarial nation’s nuclear-weapons program using
general techniques of PERT. (See PERT 1958 and Malcolm et al. 1959
for the original descriptions of PERT, and see Moder et al. 1983 for a
comprehensive review.) Brown et al. (2004) ask the

Iran and Nuclear Weapons: Protracted Conflict and Proliferation (Routledge Global Security Studies)
Iran and Nuclear Weapons: Protracted Conflict and Proliferation (Routledge Global Security Studies)

This book investigates what is driving Iran's nuclear weapons programme in a less-hostile regional environment, using a theory of protracted conflicts to explicate proliferation.

Iran’s nuclear weapons program has alarmed the international community since the 1990s, but has come to the forefront of international security...

Complex Robotic Systems (Lecture Notes in Control and Information Sciences)
Complex Robotic Systems (Lecture Notes in Control and Information Sciences)
Robotic systems have proved themselves to be of increasing importance and are widely adopted to substitute for humans in repetitive or hazardous situations. Their diffusion has outgrown the limits of industrial applications in manufacturing systems to co ver all aspects of exploration and servicing in hostile environments such as undersea, outer...
Asymmetric Warfare in South Asia: The Causes and Consequences of the Kargil Conflict
Asymmetric Warfare in South Asia: The Causes and Consequences of the Kargil Conflict

The 1999 conflict between India and Pakistan near the town of Kargil in contested Kashmir was the first military clash between two nuclear-armed powers since the 1969 Sino-Soviet war. Kargil was a landmark event not because of its duration or casualties, but because it contained a very real risk of nuclear escalation. Until the Kargil...
