From the INTRODUCTORY REMARKS.
In this age of moral obtuseness, political corruption, and servile, cringing timidity of officials before vice and crime, it is cheering to know that there is occasionally one who, independently and fearlessly, wields the sceptre of power, which is placed in his hands, and, with full determination to conquer, grapples with every form of iniquity, making law;, order and virtue triumphant. It is especially gratifying, in a great city like this, where lawlessness, immorality, bloodshed and murder have been almost unimpeded, to see a magistrate rise above the selfish desire to aggrandize himself, and scorn to pander to the corrupt desires of his constituents. The manner in which the lowest dregs of society in New York, composed in part of the scum of Europe's prisons and alms-houses,, have outraged all decency and good order, not only in the foulest dens of infamy and amid the darkness of midnight, but in our fashionable streets and in open daylight, calls for an outburst of indignation from every moral and religious man. It calls for more; it demands action - at the polls, by petition, and especially by sustaining those in authority who dare to face the terrific storm which threatens to overwhelm them at every step they take in wrenching the dagger from the hand of the assassin, in rescuing female virtue from the grasp of the debauchee, and in endeavoring to disperse the dark and threatening clouds of moral contamination which almost entirely hide from our view, the light of morality and religion. The loose manner in which the laws have been administered in this city for several years past is notorious; aye, the utter want of principle in many, of our highest officers and their contemptible endeavors to aggrandize and enrich themselves at the expense of good citizens, have made, us a reproach not only to this whole nation, but to European cities. It is a humbling fact that the tea-room and whiskey-bottle have influenced many of our highest officers, far more than a desire to fearlessly and faithfully perform their duty, and endeavor to be in reality as they should be, a terror to evil doers.
Some of our chief magistrates have commendably endeavored to reform and renovate the city, and have succeeded to some extent for a short time; but have seemed finally to be overwhelmed by the immense tide of opposition and corruption -with which they were surrounded, and to have given up in despair. We are fully aware that a man must have almost superhuman inflexibility, fearlessness, and perseverance, to stem the tide; but it CAN BE DONE. True, it may be at the risk of slander and even life; but it can be done. The laws are good, and only need a few modifications. Let them be executed. No matter what the consequences are. Let opposers resist; let the envious growl and defame; let the dens of licentiousness gnash their teeth; let the assassin prowl along our pathway, endeavoring to silence us in death; and let the wail of revenge against us ascend from the cells .of our penitentiaries and prisons; but let us do our duty in the fear of God, and all will be Well. He whose eye cannot look - upon iniquity with allowance, will bless us as magistrates, as individuals and as a city....


Markov Models And Optimization

RRP $387.99

This book presents a radically new approach to problems of evaluating and optimizing the performance of continuous-time stochastic systems. This approach is based on the use of a family of Markov processes called Piecewise-Deterministic Processes (PDPs) as a general class of stochastic system models. A PDP is a Markov process that follows deterministic trajectories between random jumps, the latter occurring either spontaneously, in a Poisson-like fashion, or when the process hits the boundary of its state space. This formulation includes an enormous variety of applied problems in engineering, operations research, management science and economics as special cases; examples include queueing systems, stochastic scheduling, inventory control, resource allocation problems, optimal planning of production or exploitation of renewable or non-renewable resources, insurance analysis, fault detection in process systems, and tracking of maneuvering targets, among many others.
The first part of the book shows how these applications lead to the PDP as a system model, and the main properties of PDPs are derived. There is particular emphasis on the so-called extended generator of the process, which gives a general method for calculating expectations and distributions of system performance functions. The second half of the book is devoted to control theory for PDPs, with a view to controlling PDP models for optimal performance: characterizations are obtained of optimal strategies both for continuously-acting controllers and for control by intervention (impulse control). Throughout the book, modern methods of stochastic analysis are used, but all the necessary theory is developed from scratch and presented in a self-contained way. The book will be useful to engineers and scientists in the application areas as well as to mathematicians interested in applications of stochastic analysis.


Plant And Crop Modelling

This book is a textbook (it includes, for example, exercises and outline solutions). The plant scientist is shown how to express physiological ideas mathematically and how to deduce quantitative conclusions, which can then be compared with experiment. There is little new biology in the book, but it is presented in a way that will be new to many biologists. The matching of models to experiments means using mathematics for formulating biological concepts and second, using algebra, calculus, or, now more frequently, computers to solve or simulate the resulting model; and finally, comparing, qualitatively or quantitatively, prediction to measurement. Computers are the important enabling technology that makes it all possible: solving equations, assembling models of increasing sophistication and complexity, and comparing theory with experiment. The book is divided into three parts. Part I. Covers subjects of wide relevance to modelling and plant biology. Part II. The reader may choose to select topics of particular interest from part II. However, the whole-plant modeller will need to study all chapters, and the plant ecosystem modeller may need to add other material also. Part III. Plant morphology is at an introductory level. It is included because morphological characters may prove to be of equal importance to some physiological traits in determining plant function and performance. "This textbook presents, in an interesting and clearly written fashion, a mathematical approach to a wide range of topics in plant and crop physiology, including light interception, leaf and canopy photosynthesis, respiration, partitioning, transpiration and water relations, branching and phyllotaxis. The biochemistry of plant growth and maintenanace is also presented in some detail. I was very pleased with the text, especially with the philosophy presented by the authors that biological models are necessarily simplifications of complex detail. I would strongly recommend it for reading and consultation by graduates and research workers." J. Exp. Botany "The authors' approach succeeds admirably, giving a thorough account of the mathematical toolbox available to researchers and the areas in which those tools have been used." Plant, Cell and Environment "Combining considerable technical cleverness with creativity and the refreshing notion that science is a "common-sense, unpredictable, fascinating and thoroughly human activity." Times Higher Educational Supplement "Exceptionally scholarly volume. Logical and systematic. Authors have assembled a mass of mathematical material in an elegant layout." Agricultural Systems

Preface "In aircraft design, efficiency is determined by the ability to accurately and rel- bly predict the occurrence of, and to model the development of, turbulent flows. Hence, the main objective in industrial computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is to increase the capabilities for an improved predictive accuracy for both complex flows and complex geometries". This text part taken from Haase et al (2006), - scribing the results of the DESider predecessor project "FLOMANIA" is still - and will be in future valid. With an ever-increasing demand for faster, more reliable and cleaner aircraft, flight envelopes are necessarily shifted into areas of the flow regimes exhibiting highly unsteady and, for military aircraft, unstable flow behaviour. This undou- edly poses major new challenges in CFD; generally stated as an increased pred- tive accuracy whist retaining "affordable" computation times. Together with highly resolved meshes employing millions of nodes, numerical methods must have the inherent capability to predict unsteady flows. Although at present, (U)RANS methods are likely to remain as the workhorses in industry, the DESider project focussed on the development and combination of these approaches with LES methods in order to "bridge" the gap between the much more expensive (due to high Reynolds numbers in flight), but more accurate (full) LES.
