Gas Hydrates 1

Fundamentals, Characterization and Modeling

Edited by Daniel Broseta, University of Pau and Pays de l’Adour, France Livio Ruffine, French Research Institute for the Exploitation of the Sea (Ifremer), France Arnaud Desmedt, University of Bordeaux, France

Gas hydrates, or clathrate hydrates, are crystalline solids resembling ice, in which small (guest) molecules, typically gases, are trapped inside cavities formed by hydrogen-bonded water (host) molecules. They form and remain stable under low temperatures – often well below ambient conditions – and high pressures ranging from a few bar to hundreds of bar, depending on the guest molecule. Their pre...

Supply Chain Management and Business Performance

The VASC Model

Christelle Camman, Aix-Marseille University, France Claude Fiore, Aix-Marseille University, France Laurent Livolsi, Aix-Marseille University, France Pascal Querro, Aix-Marseille University, France

Against this current trend of low growth and high uncertainty, business directors must work with their shareholders to set strategic objectives and define business models.
The great number of possible strategies makes this type of management very complex, and the actual deployment of strategic choices is often limited by a lack of overall coherence within the organization.
This problem calls fo...

Chi-squared Goodness-of-fit Tests for Censored Data

Stochastic Models in Survival Analysis and Reliability Set – Volume 3

Mikhail S. Nikulin, University Victor Segalen, France Ekaterina V. Chimitova, Novosibirsk State Technical University, Russia

This book is devoted to the problems of construction and application of chi-squared goodness-of-fit tests for complete and censored data. Classical chi-squared tests assume that unknown distribution parameters are estimated using grouped data, but in practice this assumption is often forgotten. In this book, we consider modified chi-squared tests, which do not suffer from such a drawback. The auth...

Smart Decisions in Complex Systems

Pierre Massotte, Consultant Patrick Corsi, Consultant

Faced with ever-increasing complexity on a daily basis, the decision-makers of today are struggling to find the appropriate models, methods and tools to face the issues arising in complex systems across all levels of global operations.
Having, in the past, resorted to outdated approaches which limit problem-solving to linear world views, we must now capitalize on complexities in order to succeed ...

Innovation, Between Science and Science Fiction

Smart Innovation Set - Volume 10

Thomas Michaud, Consultant

Fantasy and science fiction are both involved in the process of innovation in techno-scientific societies. Long regarded as a hindrance to rationality, and to science, science fiction has become the object of praise in recent decades.
Innovative organizations use science fiction to stimulate the creativity of their teams, and more and more entrepreneurs are using its influence to develop innov...

Nonlinear Theory of Elastic Plates

Anh Le van, University of Nantes, France

This book presents three plate models, those of Cosserat, Reissner-Mindlin and Kirchhoff-Love respectively. From the point of view of the kinematics hypothesis, these range from the most general to the most restrictive; and from the point of view of the formulation of the model, these range from the simplest to the most complex.
While the explanation clearly demonstrates how the models are rela...

Exterior Algebras

Elementary Tribute to Grassmann's Ideas

Vincent Pavan, Aix-Marseille University, France

Exterior algebras have two key characteristics: they are relatively unknown and essential to linear algebra. Since being theorized by Grassmann in 1844, they have remained tragically forgotten.
This book presents the construction and use of exterior algebra calculations in an elementary and progressive manner. Aimed at students, teachers as well as other users of algebraic calculations – physic...

From Pinch Methodology to Pinch-Exergy Integration of Flexible Systems

Thermodynamics – Energy, Environment, Economy Set

Assaad Zoughaib, Mines ParisTech, France

Current changes to the energy market, as well as an ambition to achieve decarbonation and highly energy efficient systems, will lead to a fundamental change in the way in which energy systems are designed and managed. In particular, the growth of renewable and renewed energy will introduce a level of design and management complexity with a greater need for efficient energy storage.
Beginning w...

Data Treatment in Environmental Sciences

Multivaried Approach

Valérie David, University of Bordeaux, France

Data Treatment in Environmental Sciences presents the various methods used in the analysis of databases, obtained in the field or in a laboratory, by focusing on the most commonly used multivariate analyses in different disciplines of environmental sciences – from geochemistry to ecology. The book examines the principles, application conditions and implementation (in R software) of various analyse...

Cognitive Approach to Natural Language Processing

Bernadette Sharp, Staffordshire University, UK Florence Sèdes, Toulouse University, France Wieslaw Lubaszewski, University of Technology, Poland

As natural language processing spans many different disciplines, it is sometimes difficult to understand the contributions and the challenges that each of them presents. This book explores the special relationship between natural language processing and cognitive science, and the contribution of computer science to these two fields. It is based on the recent research papers submitted at the intern...
