Advanced Smart Grids for Distribution System Operators

Advanced Smart Grids Set Coordinated by Nouredine Hadjsaïd and Jean-Claude Sabonnadière – Volume 1

Marc Boillot, EDF Regional Action Division, France

Distribution System Operators (DSOs) are key players in energy transition and with the help of Advanced Smart Grids they will be able to better take advantage of existing distribution networks.
Energy transition is underway in many regions of the world. This is a real challenge for electric systems and a paradigm shift for existing distribution networks. With the help of “advanced” smart technolo...

Ocean in the Earth System

Seas and Oceans Set – Volume 1

Edited by André Monaco, CNRS, France Patrick Prouzet, Ifremer, France

The books brought together in the “Seas and Oceans” Set make up a multi-disciplinary and systemic approach to the complexity, vulnerability, productivity and exploitation of the marine environment that is today faced with global change. This set of books does not simply describe and analyze the mechanisms that act on how these environments work, but it also presents a cross-disciplinary approach, ...

Kinematic Analysis of Human Movement

FOCUS Series in Bioengineering and Health Science

Laurence Chèze, Claude Bernard University Lyon 1, France

Understanding human motion has, for a long time, involved a multidisciplinary approach encompassing many scientific disciplines: biomechanics, functional anatomy, physiology and neuroscience, among others. Although these different perspectives are all important in order to completely understand motion, it is not realistic to try to cover all these aspects at the same time. This book deliberately f...

Fat-tailed Distributions

Data, Diagnostics and Dependence

Roger M. Cooke, Resources for the Future, Washington, USA Daan Nieboer, Erasmus Medical Centre – University Medical Centre Rotterdam, the Netherlands Jolanta Misiewicz, Warsaw University of Technology, Poland

This book has been written for numerate non-specialists and serves three purposes.
Firstly, it gathers together mathematical material from diverse but related fields of order statistics, records, extreme value theory, majorization, regular variation and subexponentiality. Secondly, it presents a new measure of obesity. Thirdly, and most importantly, the authors hope to convince readers that fat-t...

Climate Change

Identification and Projections

Philippe de Larminat, Ecole-Centrale-Nantes, France

Under certain scenarios on the subject of CO2 emissions, by the end of the century the atmospheric concentration could triple its pre-industrial level.
The very large numerical models intended to anticipate the corresponding climate evolutions are designed and quantified from the laws of physics. However, little is generally known about these: genesis of clouds, terms of the greenhouse effect, so...

Flows and Chemical Reactions in Heterogeneous Mixtures

Roger Prud’homme, CNRS, France

Flows with chemical reactions can occur in various fields such as combustion, process engineering, aeronautics, the atmospheric environment and aquatics.
The examples of application chosen in this book mainly concern heterogeneous reactive mixtures that can occur in propellers, during fires in microgravity or during high-speed atmospheric re-entry:
- multi-phase flows and the problem of their ge...

Spatio-temporal Approaches

Geographic Objects and Change Process

Hélène Mathian and Lena Sanders, UMR Géographie-cités, Paris, France

Spatio-temporal Approaches presents a constructed set of concepts, methods and approaches to represent and understand the evolution of social and environmental phenomena within space. It relies on applications concerning not only human geography, but also environmental geography and archeology (which enables us to explore questions regarding various temporalities) in order to test the genericity o...
