Geographical Models with Mathematica
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
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...
From Photon to Pixel – Revised and Updated 2nd Edition
The Digital Camera Handbook
This second edition of the fully revised and updated From Photon to Pixel presents essential elements in modern digital photographic devices.
Our universal infatuation with photography profoundly affects its usage and development.
While some sides of photographic “culture” remain wholly unchanged – art photography, journalistic and advertising photography, scientific photography, etc. – new fa...
Portfolio Optimization with Different Information Flow
Optimization in Insurance and Finance Set
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
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 ...
Frequencies and Harmony
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
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...
Current and Emerging Issues in the Audiovisual Industry
Diverse and Global Perspectives on Value Creation Set – Volume 1
This book focuses on the challenges of competition in television broadcasting markets. The issues that arise with the transforming audiovisual industry are observed with a focus on audiences and consumers. The ideas collected here are the result of years of market observation, conversations with media managers and trend analysis. Although some of the examples provided come from the Spanish market,...
Reflexive Governance for Research and Innovative Knowledge
Responsible Research and Innovation Set – Volume 6
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...
Location Strategies and Value Creation of International Mergers and Acquisitions
The globalization of markets and changes in the economic environment are prompting companies to accelerate their international expansion through mergers and acquisitions. The research presented in this book is based on a sample of 395 mergers and acquisitions carried out by French companies worldwide. It has two components: (1) the study of the purchaser's choice to undertake operations in mature ...
