Messung ökologischer Effizienz mittels Data Envelopment by Katrin Allen

By Katrin Allen

Die "ökologische Effizienz" gewinnt für Unternehmungen im Rahmen eines nachhaltigen Umweltmanagements zunehmend an Bedeutung. Durch ihre Messung können Entwicklungen, Stärken und Schwachstellen in der unternehmerischen Umweltleistung aufgezeigt werden.

Katrin Allen untersucht die Möglichkeiten und Grenzen der information Envelopment research (DEA) als tool für eine Messung ökologischer Effizienz. Nach einer examine der reason und Schwierigkeiten der Messung ökologischer Effizienz stellt sie die Grundlagen der DEA anhand eines einfachen Zahlenbeispiels vor. Der Schwerpunkt liegt auf der Identifikation und examine von Erweiterungen der DEA, die für eine Messung ökologischer Effizienz erforderlich oder nützlich sind. Dazu wird insbesondere auf Erkenntnisse der Produktions- und Entscheidungstheorie zurückgegriffen.

Advances in Spatio-Temporal Analysis by Tang X. (Ed), Kainz W. (Ed)

By Tang X. (Ed), Kainz W. (Ed)

Advancements in geographic details expertise have raised the expectancies of clients. A static map isn't any longer adequate; there's now call for for a dynamic illustration. Time is of significant value whilst working on real-world geographical phenomena, specifically while those are dynamic. Researchers within the box of temporal geographical info platforms (TGIS) were constructing tools of incorporating time into geographical info platforms. Spatio-temporal research embodies spatial modeling, spatio-temporal modeling, spatial reasoning, and knowledge mining. Advances in Spatio-Temporal research contributes to the sector of spatio-temporal research, proposing cutting edge rules and examples that mirror present growth and achievements.

Market Risk Analysis by Carol Alexander

By Carol Alexander

Ebook Date: February 24, 2009 | ISBN-10: 0470997990 | ISBN-13: 978-0470997994 | variation: 4 quantity Boxset
Market threat research is the main entire, rigorous and certain source to be had on industry threat research. Written as a sequence of 4 interlinked volumes each one name is self-contained, even if various cross-references to different volumes allow readers to procure additional heritage wisdom and knowledge approximately monetary applications.

Volume III: Pricing, Hedging and buying and selling monetary tools has 5 very lengthy chapters at the pricing, hedging and buying and selling of bonds and swaps, futures and forwards, recommendations and volatility besides specific descriptions of mapping portfolios of those monetary tools to their hazard components. there are lots of examples, all coded in interactive Excel spreadsheets, together with many pricing formulae for unique concepts yet with the exception of the calibration of stochastic volatility types, for which Matlab code is equipped. The chapters on innovations and volatility jointly represent 50% of the booklet, the marginally longer bankruptcy on volatility targeting the dynamic houses the 2 volatility surfaces the implied and the neighborhood volatility surfaces that accompany an choice pricing version, with specific connection with hedging.

Metallography in Failure Analysis by I. Le May (auth.), James L. McCall, P. M. French (eds.)

By I. Le May (auth.), James L. McCall, P. M. French (eds.)

Detailed analyses of mess ups of fabric parts have proved to be worthy in lots of methods; by means of fighting extra mess ups, via assessing the validity of designs and the choice of fabrics, through uncovering shortcomings within the processing of the fabrics in­ volved via characterizations of defects, and via revealing difficulties brought in the course of the manufacture or fabrication of the part. elevated reputation of the worth of appearing failure analyses has prompted the sphere to turn into a really lively sector of tech­ nical pastime. Failure research has been hired in different diversified technical dis­ ciplines and has confirmed helpful. The elevated task has prompted many new and im­ proved equipment for appearing those analyses to be built. between those are many equipment which are characterised as often belonging to the sphere of metallography. In attractiveness of the real function that metallography performs within the functionality of failure analyses, the absence of a textual content that particularly discusses this topic, and the be­ lief that conversation of data at the topic will be of technical curiosity, the yankee Society for Metals and The overseas Metallographic Society co­ subsidized a symposium. The purpose used to be to compile world-recognized professionals operating in a variety of elements of the failure research and metallographic fields to percentage meth­ ods they use, effects they've got received, and the needs to which they applied those effects. The symposium, entitled "Metallography in Failure Analysis", used to be held in Hous­ ton, Texas, united states, July 17-18, 1977.

Plane Analytic Geometry With Differential Calculus. Maxime by Maxime Bocher

By Maxime Bocher

Analytic Geometry, if competently taught, is a diificult topic, and focus on some of its very important rules is important if mastery is the purpose. i've got minimize out, or installed small sort (or in past due chapters that may be simply passed over) what turns out to me much less crucial. With only a few exceptions i've got used equipment so ordinary that they could function versions for the coed in his personal paintings. Neither the notation of determinants nor (except inC hapters XII, XIII) that of the calculus has been used, due to the fact a tough new topic is simply obscured through a notation which has now not already turn into completely typical, and i'm out of date adequate to think in dealing with one trouble at a time. It desire rarely be acknowledged that during instructing it might probably now not be a good idea to stick with in all places the order of the booklet, that's intended to serve no longer in basic terms as a text-book from daily yet as an everlasting publication of reference. At Harvard, the place lots of the paintings the following given is taken up within the Freshman type, a substantial a part of bankruptcy Xand the entire of bankruptcy XI are postponed until theS ophomore yr, hence making room for Chapters XII and XIII. This advent of a bit calculus, now not hashed effective yet placed squarely as a brand new topic, over the last six weeks of the Freshman yr has been such a lot winning. The elements of the calculus therefore brought are more straightforward than the components of analytic geometry they substitute, and, to the typical scholar, extra fascinating; and the coed who has obtained just a little past his intensity has an opportunity for a brand new start.

Introduction to the theory of Fourier's series and integrals by H. S. Carslaw

By H. S. Carslaw

As an introductory rationalization of the speculation of Fourier's sequence, this transparent, precise textual content is exceptional. The 3rd revised variation, that is the following reprinted unabridged, includes assessments for uniform convergence of sequence, an intensive remedy of term-by-term integration and the second one theorem of suggest worth, enlarged units of examples on endless sequence and integrals, and a bit facing the Riemann Lebeague theorem and its results. An appendix compares the Lebeague convinced quintessential with the classical Riemann necessary.
