by Jean-Michel Rendu (Author)
Don’t invest in a mining project until you’ve read Risk Management in Evaluating Mineral Deposits.
Mining is not for the fainthearted. Yes, the rewards are enormous. But so are the risksand consequencesof failure. Risk Management in Evaluating Mineral Deposits walks you through the many-faceted risk evaluation you need to conduct before you invest your hard-earned dollars.
Written by a mining professional with a strong background in technical and financial studies, risk assessment, and statistics, this book provides a detailed suite of tools so you can determine whether investing in a mining project makes sense for you. Looking at a host of issuesthe composition of the ore deposit, the management’s previous record, the quality of the information at hand, and your own risk-tolerance comfort level, to name a fewauthor Jean-Michel Rendu provides a comprehensive guide to determine when to invest with high confidence, when to demand a plan that reduces the risks and increases the chances of a positive outcome, and when to just walk away.
This book will have relevance for many years. Unlike others, Rendu factors in not just financial but environmental and social aspects to evaluate the triple bottom line. He shows you why your project needs a different evaluator for each of these three legs and how to combine their evaluations to make one decision. As more and more government agencies and communities insist on these types of metrics, this focus will help keep you up-to-date in a rapidly changing world and increase the possibility that your investment will generate profits even in this complex, uncertain, and time-constrained industry.

This book summarizes the results of research the authors have pursued in the past years on the problem of implementing Bell’s notion of local causality in local physical theories and relating it to other important concepts and principles in the foundations of physics such as the Common Cause Principle, Bell’s inequalities, the EPR (Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen) scenario, and various other locality and causality concepts. The book is intended for philosophers of science with an interest in the formal background of sciences, philosophers of physics and physicists working in foundation of physics.

Understanding basin-fill evolution and the origin of stratal architectures has traditionally been based on studies of outcrops, well and seismic data, studies of and inferences on qualitative geological processes, and to a lesser extent based on quantitative observations of modern and ancient sedimentary environments. Insight gained on the basis of these studies can increasingly be tested and extended through the application of numerical and analogue forward models.
Present-day stratigraphic forward modelling follows two principle lines: 1) the deterministic process-based approach, ideally with resolution of the fundamental equations of fluid and sediment motion at all scales, and 2) the stochastic approach. The process-based approach leads to improved understanding of the dynamics (physics) of the system, increasing our predictive power of how systems evolve under various forcing conditions unless the system is highly non-linear and hence difficult or perhaps even impossible to predict. The stochastic approach is more direct, relatively simple, and useful for study of more complicated or less-well understood systems. Process-based models, more than stochastic ones, are directly limited by the diversity of temporal and spatial scales and the very incomplete knowledge of how processes operate and interact on the various scales.

The papers included in this book demonstrate how cross-fertilization between traditional field studies and analogue and numerical forward modelling expands our understanding of Earth-surface systems.

Problems in science and engineering are more and more solved “in silico”, meaning by computation. By providing an overview on computational science with problems from various fields, the editors present a good overview on what is possible in simulation, optimization and data analysis when using computational methods.
Eleven carefully selected, peer-reviewed contributions from the Virtual Conference on Computational Science (VCCS-2016) are featured in this edited book of proceedings. VCCS-2016, an annual meeting, was held online from 1st to 31st August 2016. The theme of the conference was’Computational Thinking for the Advancement of Society’and it matched the paradigm shift in the way we think. VCCS-2016 was attended by 100 participants from 20 countries. The chapters reflect a wide range of fundamental and applied research applying computational methods.
Marcano investigated anthocyanidin and anthocyanin pigments for dye sensitized solar cells based on Density Functional Theory (DFT) method. DFT method was also used by Ranjan et al. to study silver-gold nanoclusters. Gbayo et al. applied DFT method to understand the mechanism of nucleophilic substitution reactions of 4-(4-nitro)phenylnitrobenzofurazan ether with aniline in acetonitrile. Khairat et al. used high level ab initio method to probe the electronic states of two newly detected dications namely MgS and SiN. Palafox applied several ab initio methods to vibrational spectroscopy for a better characterization and assignment of all the bands of the experimental spectra. Majee and Biswas used computational algorithm methods where Spatial Aggregation Propensity was employed and molecular dynamics simulation approach for prediction of aggregation prone areas in mono-clonal antibodies. Chowdhury et al. studied the optical and magnetic properties of free standing two-dimensional (2D) materials silicene, germanene and T-graphene while the contribution by Schwingenschlogl et al. provides a review of elemental two-dimensional materials beyond graphene. Ocaya and Terblans addressed the challenges of standalone multi-core simulations in molecular dynamics. Patade and Bhalekar analyzed pantograph equation with incommensurate delay and provide analytical solution. Chooramun et al. used the Hybrid Space Discretisation to simulate evacuation and this was applied to large underground rail tunnel station.

The Nanotechnology Revolution : A Global Bibliographic Perspective

English | 2018 | ISBN: 9814774197 | 448 Pages | PDF | 14 MB

Nanotechnology is changing the world in a very big way, but at the atomic and sub-atomic level. Although the roots of nanotechnology can be traced back to more than a century ago, the last three decades have witnessed an explosion of nano-based technologies and products. This reference work examines the history, current status, and future directions of nanotechnology through an exhaustive search of the technical and scientific literature. The more than 4000 bibliographic citations it includes are carefully organized into core subject areas, and a geographic and subject index allows readers to quickly locate documents of interest.
Although a sense of the global reach and interest in nanotechnology can be gleaned from the reference sections of countless journal articles, conference papers, and books, this is the only reference work providing an in-depth global perspective that is ready-made for nanotechnology professionals and those interested in learning more about all things nanotechnology. Despite the abundance of online resources, there is still an urgent need for well-researched, well-presented, concise, and thematically organized reference works. Instead of relying on wiki pages, citation aggregators, and related websites, the author searched the databases and databanks of scholarly literature search providers such as EBSCO, ProQuest, PUBMED, STN International, and Thomson Reuters. In addition, he used select serials-related databases to account for pertinent documents from countries in which English is not the primary national language (i.e., China Online Journals, e-periodica, J-STAGE, and SciELO Brazil among others).
