  • Climate Change and Energy Options for a Sustainable Future


    Climate Change and Energy Options for a Sustainable Future
    by Dinesh Kumar Srivastava & V S Ramamurthy

    "The authors analyse solutions offered by science and technology with a clarity that will likely surpass the expectations of non-expert readers. Following a pedagogical approach with vivid illustrations, the book offers an in-depth description of how each green-energy option could be integrated into a global-energy strategy ... They stress that any solution should not compromise quality of life or development opportunities in developing countries. This book could not be more timely. It is an invaluable resource for scientists, policymakers and educators."

    Ethics of Chemistry


    Ethics of Chemistry
    From Poison Gas to Climate Engineering
    edited by Joachim Schummer & Tom Børsen

    "Overall, this collection of case studies provides an outstanding starting point for understanding the ethics of chemistry. It is an extremely important contribution to the study of chemical ethics … Ethics of Chemistry is a key resource for educators interested in integrating ethics instruction into their chemistry curricula … an important foundation for equipping students with the moral judgement and analytical skills necessary to contend with the ethical issues they are likely to face in their professional lives."

    A Day at CERN


    A Day at CERN
    Guided Tour Through the Heart of Particle Physics
    by Gautier Depambour

    "This brief book offers an interesting, fun, and widely accessible first-person tour of CERN, the European Center for Nuclear Research, the largest particle physics laboratory in the world. The facilities at CERN include the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a 27-kilometer particle accelerator that straddles the border between Switzerland and France. The LHC was famously used to discover the Higgs boson, a long-sought fundamental particle. Physics historian Depambour (University of Paris) is enthusiastic about all aspects of CERN, especially its role as an agent for peace and international cooperation..."

This special issue was also prepared to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Wuhan National Laboratory for Optoelectronics.

    Special Issue on Economics of Water Technology Diffusion and Policy Uncertainties

    Guest Editor: Zhanhong Wan

    This special issue weaves together a rich tapestry of cutting-edge research, shedding light on the intricate landscape of water resource management, economic development, and the critical policy implications that emerge from these studies. These papers, like threads in a complex fabric, converge to reveal overarching themes and fresh perspectives, providing vital guidance for policymakers grappling with the challenges that define the global landscape of water technology diffusion.

    Special Issue on “Reviews & Essays”

    Guest Editors: Nicola Bellomo and Franco Brezzi

    This editorial is dedicated to presenting the papers published in a special issue focused on modeling, qualitative analysis and simulation of the collective dynamics of systems in engineering and life sciences. All papers have a minor or major reference to living, i.e. complex systems, and a critical analysis of the overall content of the issue is proposed, leading to a forward look at research perspectives.
