Item description for Coping with Uncertainty: Modeling and Policy Issues (Lecture Notes in Economics and Mathematical Systems) by Kurt Marti, Yuri Ermoliev, Marek Makowski & Georg Pflug...

Ongoing global changes bring fundamentally new scientific problems requiring
new concepts and tools. A key issue concerns a vast variety of practically
irreducible uncertainties, which challenge our traditional models and require
new concepts and analytical tools. The uncertainty critically dominates, e.g.,
the climate change debates. In short, the dilemma is concerned with enormous
costs vs. massive uncertainties of potential extreme impacts.
Traditional scientific approaches usually rely on real observations and
experiments. Yet no sufficient observations exist for new problems, and "pure"
experiments and learning by doing may be very expensive, dangerous, or
simply impossible. In addition, available historical observations are contaminated
by actions, policies. The complexity of new problems does not allow to achieve
enough certainty by increasing the resolution of models or by bringing in more links.
Hence, new tools for modeling and management of uncertainty are needed, as given
in this book which was prepared for an interdisciplinary audience, and addresses open
problems, limitations of known approaches, novel methods and techniques, or lessons
from the applications of various approaches. Thus, the book contributes to a better
understanding between practitioners dealing with the management of uncertainty, and
scientists working on either corresponding modeling approaches that can be applied for
improving understanding or management of uncertainty.

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Univ.Prof. Kurt Marti studierte Mathematik und Physik an der UniversitAt ZA1/4rich. Nach dem Diplom wechselte er an die UniversitAt Mannheim, wo er zum promovierte. AnschlieAend war er als Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter und Dozent an der UniversitAt ZA1/4rich tAtig. Es folgte ein Aufenthalt als Visiting Associate Professor an der University of Kentucky in Lexington, Ky, USA. Er wurde dann auf die Professur fA1/4r HAhere Mathematik und Operations Research an der FakultAt fA1/4r Luft- und Raumfahrttechnik der UniversitAt der Bundeswehr MA1/4nchen berufen. SpAter erfolgte der Ruf auf die Professur fA1/4r Ingenieurmathematik an derselben UniversitAt. Sein Forschungsgebiet ist die Stochastische Optimierung, wobei approximative LAsungsverfahren und insbesondere Anwendungen im Ingenieurwesen im Vordergrund stehen. Eine Aoebersicht A1/4ber die Publikationen von Prof. Marti und seiner Arbeitsgruppe auf verschiedenen Gebieten der Stochastischen Optimierung und ihren Anwendungen in der Strukturoptimierung sowie in der Robotik findet man auf der Webseite: http: // Prof. Marti ist Chairman des GAMM-Fachausschusses "Optimierung und Angewandte Stochastik" und Chairman der IFIP Working Group WG7.7 "Stochastic Optimization."

Kurt Marti was born in 1943.
