Download New Developments in Approximation Theory: 2nd International by Francesco Altomare, Ioan Rasa (auth.), Manfred W. Müller, PDF

By Francesco Altomare, Ioan Rasa (auth.), Manfred W. Müller, Martin D. Buhmann, Detlef H. Mache, Michael Felten (eds.)

This publication comprises refereed papers that have been provided on the moment overseas Dortmund assembly on Approximation thought (IDoMAT ‘98) at Haus Bommerholz, the convention middle of Dortmund collage, in the course of the week of February 23–27, 1998. At this convention 50 researchers and experts from Bulgaria, China, France, nice Britain, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Romania, South Africa and Germany participated and defined new advancements within the fields of univariate and multivariate approximation concept. The papers hide subject matters resembling radial foundation features, bivariate spline interpolation, subdivision algorithms, multilevel interpolation, multivariate triangular Bernstein bases, Padé approximation, comonotone polynomial approximation, weighted and unweighted polynomial approximation, adaptive approximation, approximation operators of binomial style, quasi-interpolants, generalized convexity and Peano kernel techniques.

This examine has purposes in components similar to computer-aided geometric layout, as utilized in engineering and scientific know-how (e.g. automatic tomography).

Download Zertifikate im Klimaschutz: Ausgestaltung eines Systems by Petra Kreis-Hoyer PDF

By Petra Kreis-Hoyer

Der so genannte "Treibhauseffekt" stellt eines der drängendsten Probleme unserer Zeit dar. Gelingt es nicht, die Anreicherung der dafür verantwortlichen "Treibhausgase" in der Atmosphäre zu beschränken, droht eine Erwärmung der Erdoberfläche mit schwerwiegenden Folgen für den Menschen.

Petra Kreis-Hoyer untersucht die Frage, ob handelbare Treibhausgaszertifikate ein geeignetes Mittel zur Lösung dieser Aufgabe darstellen. Aufbauend auf einer nearby differenzierten Kosten-Nutzen-Analyse des Klimaschutzes erarbeitet sie konkrete Ausgestaltungsvorschläge für ein solches Zertifikatesystem. Im Mittelpunkt ihrer examine steht die spieltheoretisch ausgerichtete Untersuchung von Teilnahmeanreizen und von Maßnahmen zur Stabilisierung einer einmal erreichten Klimakooperation.

Insgesamt kommt die Autorin zu dem Ergebnis, dass ein sinnvoll konzipiertes internationales Zertifikatesystem einen wertvollen Beitrag zu einer ökonomisch effizienten und ökologisch effektiven Bekämpfung des Treibhauseffektes leisten könnte.
