Making the Modern World: Materials and Dematerialization


Vaclav Smil
978-1-119-94253-5 / 1-119-94253-5 240 pp. Pub: 15/11/13 General & Introductory Materials Science
How much further should the affluent world push its material consumption? Does relative dematerialization lead to absolute decline in demand for materials? These and many other questions are discussed and answered in Making the Modern World: Materials and Dematerialization. Over the course of time, the modern world has become dependent on unprecedented flows of materials. Now even the most efficient production processes and the highest practical rates of recycling may not be enough to result in dematerialization rates that would be high enough to negate the rising demand for materials generated by continuing population growth and rising standards of living. This book explores the costs of this dependence and the potential for substantial dematerialization of modern economies. It considers the principal materials used throughout history, from wood and stone, through to metals, alloys, plastics, and silicon, describing their extraction and production as well as their dominant applications. The evolving productivities of material extraction, processing, synthesis, finishing, and distribution, and the energy costs and environmental impact of rising material consumption are examined in detail. The book concludes with an outlook for the future, discussing the prospects for dematerialization and potential constraints on materials. This interdisciplinary text will provide useful perspectives for readers with backgrounds including resource economics, environmental studies, energy analysis, mineral geology, industrial organization, manufacturing, and material science.

Provides the entire roadmap for the design, testing, development, refinement, deployment and statistics-driven optimization of building systems for intelligence. The confluence of cloud computing, parallelism and advanced machine intelligence approaches has created a world in which the optimum knowledge system will usually be architected from the combination of two or more knowledge-generating systems. There is a need, then, to provide a reusable, broadly-applicable set of design patterns to empower the intelligent system architect to take advantage of this opportunity. This book explains how to design and build intelligent systems that are optimized for changing system requirements (adaptability), optimized for changing system input (robustness), and optimized for one or more other important system parameters (e.g., accuracy, efficiency, cost). It provides an overview of traditional parallel processing which is shown to consist primarily of task and component parallelism; before introducing meta-algorithmic parallelism which is based on combining two or more algorithms, classification engines or other systems.

978-1-118-11890-0 / 1-118-11890-1 240 pp. Pub: 26/04/13 Polymer Science & Technology General
Plastics Additives and Testing is a practical book for engineers and operators and discusses both inorganic and organic chemicals that are widely used as additives in plastics processing operations. It is common practice today to use analytical techniques to improve plastics processing. Because it is critically important to manufacture quality products, a reasonable balance must be drawn between control requirements and parameters for improved processing method with respect to plastics additives. This book serves to implement this balance in the manufacturing line. There are many books focusing solely on additives, testing, or plastics processing. However, this book combines plastics additives, testing and quality control so it is a valuable and critical book for engineers and operators to have when performing their tasks. The author is an successful international consultant with an excellent publishing track record. The book is aimed at people in industry and manufacturing such as operators, processors, engineers, chemists. The book is ideal for technical seminars in industry or courses in engineering and technology schools that teach polymers or plastics technology both at the graduate and post graduate levels.

Covers almost all theoretical physics topics that would typically be taught in an advanced bachelor program or to prepare for a Masters in theoretical physics. The quantum mechanics, statistical physics, and special relativity part of the book proposal are part of standard physics curricula. A guide for Instructor's covering all the key topics of theoretical physics required in an undergraduate physics program Includes, with full derivations of all expressions, accounts of Nobel-prize-winning work such as the Weinberg--Salam theory of the electroweak interaction and the Bardeen-Cooper--Schrieffer theory of superconductivity. Suitable as a guide for Instructor's covering all the key topics of theoretical physics required in an undergraduate physics program. Also relevant to advanced bachelor/beginning master students in theoretical physics, who want an overview of topics in theoretical physics that weren't part of their undergraduate curriculum (e.g. general relativity).

Statistical Physics: an Entropic Approach


Ian Ford
978-1-119-97531-1 / 1-119-97531-X 272 pp. Pub: 24/05/13 Thermal Physics & Statistical Mechanics
This undergraduate textbook provides students with a statistical mechanical foundation to the classical laws of thermodynamics through a comprehensive treatment of the basics of classical thermodynamics, equilibrium statistical mechanics, irreversible thermodynamics, and statistical mechanics of non-equilibrium phenomena. The concept of entropy is studied starting from the ideal gas law, known to every undergraduate. By considering various thermodynamic processes, it then explores the concept's generality. An accessible style enables undergraduates to easily follow the presentation without much prior knowledge. The focus on entropy distinguishes the book from many other treatments of this subject. A unique approach to this key topic within the physics undergraduate curriculum that bases everything on pictures and intuition, to which mathematics adds a definitive structure. Focuses from the beginning on entropy as the important quantity and introduces it thoroughly in the context of classical thermodynamics Will include problems with solutions and extensive illustrations, as well as supplementary reading sections on Langevin dynamics and Fluctuation Theorems and an expansion of several existing themes. This text is aimed at physics and engineering students taking a course in statistical thermodynamics, usually nd 2 /3rd year undergraduate. The book is also valuable as a general reference for the first years of graduate studies.

Provides a comprehensive look into a modern section of the probability theory, the so-called theory of branching random walks. Chapter 1 describes the random walk model in the finite branching one-source environment. Chapter 2 is devoted to a model of homogeneous, symmetrical, irreducible random walk (without branching) with finite variance of the jumps on the multidimensional integer continuous-time lattice where transition is possible to an arbitrary point of the lattice and not only to the neighbor state. This model is a generalization of the simple symmetrical random walk often encountered in the applied studies. In Chapter 3 the branching random walk is studied by means of the spectral methods. Here, the property of monotonicity of the mean number of particles in the source plays an important role in the subsequent parts of the book. Chapter 4 demonstrates that existence of an isolated positive eigenvalue in the spectrum of unperturbed random walk generator defines the exponential growth of the process in the supercritical case. Chapter 5 exemplifies application of the Tauberian theorems in the asymptotical problems of the probability theory. At last, the final Chapters 6 and 7 are devoted to detailed examination of survival probabilities in the critical and subcritical cases. Describes the random walk model in the finite branching one-source environment, gradually increasing the complexity of the model Explores the branching random walk by means of the spectral methods. Exemplifies application of the Tauberian theorems in the asymptotical problems of the probability theory. Provides detailed examination of survival probabilities in the critical and subcritical cases.
