Genre: Computers

This volume of LNCSE is a collection of the papers from the proceedings of the third workshop on sparse grids and applications. Sparse grids are a popular approach for the numerical treatment of high-dimensional problems. Where classical numerical discretization schemes fail in more than three or four dimensions, sparse grids, in their different guises, are frequently the method of choice, be it spatially adaptive in the hierarchical basis or via the dimensionally adaptive combination technique. Demonstrating once again the importance of this numerical discretization scheme, the selected articles present recent advances on the numerical analysis of sparse grids as well as efficient data structures. The book also discusses a range of applications, including uncertainty quantification and plasma physics.

River Sedimentation

Author: Silke Wieprecht
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 9781317225300
Release Date: 2016-11-30
Genre: Science

Sediment dynamics in fluvial systems is of great ecological, economic and human-health-related significance worldwide. Appropriate management strategies are therefore needed to limit maintenance costs as well as minimize potential hazards to the aquatic and adjacent environments. Human intervention, ranging from nutrient/pollutant release to physical modifications, has a large impact on sediment quantity and quality and thus on river morphology as well as on ecological functioning. Truly understanding sediment dynamics requires as a consequence a multidisciplinary approach. River Sedimentation contains the peer-reviewed scientific contributions presented at the 13th International Symposium on River Sedimentation (ISRS 2016, Stuttgart, Germany, 19-22 September 2016), and includes recent accomplishments in theoretical developments, numerical modelling, experimental laboratory work, field investigations and monitoring as well as management methodologies. The book is divided into six topics: A - Integrated sediment management at the river basin scale B - Sediment transport C - River morphodynamics D - Hydromorphology meets ecology E - Reservoir sustainability F - Social, economic and political aspects of sediment management The book also includes five special topics: 1 - Hydropower and sediment management, 2 - Navigation and river morphology, 3 - Innovative measurement techniques, 4 - SEDITRANS – Sediment transport in fluvial, estuarine and coastal environment, 5 - Sustainable land management. The aforementioned subject areas will be of interest to academics, engineers and professionals.

Integrated Approach to Environmental Data Management Systems

Author: Nilgun B. Harmanciogammalu
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9789401156165
Release Date: 2012-12-06
Genre: Technology & Engineering

An integrated approach to environmental data management is necessitated by the complexity of the environmental problems that need to be addresses, coupled with the interdisciplinary approach that needs to be adopted to solve them. Agenda 21 of the Rio Environmental Conference mandated international programmes and organizations to take steps to develop common data and information management plans, and steps have been taken in this direction. The key word that defines the framework of the present book is `integration'. The book establishes the basics of integrated approaches and covers environmental data management systems within that framework, covering all aspects of data management, from objectives and constraints, design of data collection networks, statistical and physical sampling, remote sensing and GIS, databases, reliability of data, data analysis, and the transformation of data into information.

Release Date: 2015-01-01
Genre: Architecture

In The Death and Life of Great American Cities durchleuchtet Jane Jacobs 1961 die fragwürdigen Methoden der Stadtplanung und Stadtsanierung in Amerika, der "New Yorker" nannte es das unkonventionellste und provozierendste Buch über Städtebau seit langem. Die deutsche Ausgabe wurde schnell auch im deutschsprachigem Raum zu einer viel gelesenen und diskutierten Lektüre. Sie ist jetzt wieder in einem Nachdruck zugänglich, mit einem Vorwort von Gerd Albers (1993), das nach der Aktualität dieser Streitschrift fragt.

Neuk lln ist berall

Genre: Social Science

Deutschlands bekanntester Bürgermeister redet Klartext. Familien, die seit Generationen von Hartz IV leben, Eltern, die sich nicht um ihre Kinder kümmern, Jugendliche ohne Zukunftsperspektive, Parallelgesellschaften, Gewalt und Kriminalität – Berlin-Neukölln ist mittlerweile ein Synonym für die Heimat einer verlorenen Schicht geworden. Aber auch in anderen deutschen Städten haben sich die sozialen Probleme verschärft. Heinz Buschkowsky, der langjährige Bürgermeister von Neukölln, weiß, wo der Schuh drückt. Er kämpft dafür, dass sein in Verruf gekommener Bezirk wieder lebenswert für alle wird. „Um ein demokratisches, friedliches und tolerantes Gemeinwesen auch für die Zukunft sicherzustellen, heißt unser gegenwärtiger alternativloser Auftrag: Integration.“ Aber Integration ist kein Naturgesetz, das sich von alleine vollzieht, lautet seine Botschaft. Er glaubt, dass man Menschen durch Bildung verändern kann. Und er ist davon überzeugt: Wer gefördert werden will, muss sich auch an Regeln halten. Denn gerade diejenigen, die Gefahr laufen, gesellschaftlich abgehängt zu werden, sind angewiesen auf gute Bildungseinrichtungen, vernünftig bezahlte Jobs und eine Polizei, die ein friedliches Zusammenleben sichert.
