Geographical Models with Mathematica

André Dauphiné, University of Nice Sophia-Antipolis, France

All scientists develop models. Geographers build models to understand and explain the relationships between societies and their environment, the locations of objects, people and activities, and the organization of spaces and territories. This book provides a fairly comprehensive overview of the types of models necessary for the development of new geographical knowledge: stochastic models, models f...

Wall Turbulence Control

Sedat Tardu, Grenoble University, France

Wall turbulence control is a major subject, the investigation of which has significant industrial, environmental and fundamental consequences. This book deals with recent advances in active and passive turbulent skin-friction control over the past two decades.
The importance of drag reduction control in aerodynamics can be demonstrated with one simple example: just a 2% drag reduction is sufficie...

Portfolio Optimization with Different Information Flow

Optimization in Insurance and Finance Set

Caroline Hillairet, University Paris Saclay, CREST, France Ying Jiao, University of Lyon, France

This book presents recent progress made in stochastic portfolio optimization with asymmetry information, modeled through different filtrations.
The authors apply the theory of the enlargement of filtrations and solve the optimization problem. Two main types of enlargement of filtration are discussed: initial and progressive, using tools from various fields, such as from stochastic calculus and c...

Fluid–Structure Interactions and Uncertainties

Ansys and Fluent Tools

Abdelkhalak El Hami, INSA, France Bouchaib Radi, Settat Hassan First University, Morocco

The field of fluid–structure interactions groups together the study of all phenomena that present the coupling of the movement of a structure with that of a fluid. This is the mutual interaction that can link a fluid domain to its surrounding structure. The range of phenomena studied is very wide, from the study of vibrating cylinders in flows, as is the case in the nuclear industry, to vibrating ...

Musical Techniques

Frequencies and Harmony

Dominque Paret, ESIEE / DEA, France Serge Sibony, ESTP, France

If music is born of a succession of notes, only the art of choosing them well creates harmony. It is the different tones of a scale, their chords, tonal functions, movements and sequences that operate the magic sounds.
Both didactic and technical, this book presents a simple summary of the many components of musical harmony. Studying frequencies and resonances, it reveals the origins that intrins...

Stochastic Analysis of Risk and Management

Stochastic Models in Survival Analysis and Reliability Set – Volume 2

Boris Harlamov, State University, St. Petersburg, Russia

This book confronts a growing business problem. How plausible is it for a business to control the dynamic of their capital? Central to this book is the theory of the probability of ruin and how this may not necessarily mean the end of business activity. In addition to this, there are many probabilistic recommendations made by successful businessmen and women who have made their fortunes and are no...

Reflexive Governance for Research and Innovative Knowledge

Responsible Research and Innovation Set – Volume 6

Marc Maesschalck, Université de Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium

Too often, governance falls short of the ideals established through reflections on RRI. Yet, a reflexive governance model has emerged in recent years in scientific debates. This model tries to focus on the effects of actors’ commitment in shared cooperative actions so as to create the conditions for accumulating new knowledge through the collective experimentation of solutions. These reflexive mec...
