› Find signed collectible books: 'Complementarity Modeling in Energy Markets (International Series in Operations Research & Management Science)'
This addition to the ISOR series introduces complementarity models in a straightforward and approachable manner and uses them to carry out an in-depth analysis of energy markets, including formulation issues and solution techniques. In a nutshell, complementarity models generalize: a. optimization problems via their Karush-Kuhn-Tucker conditions b. on-cooperative games in which each player may be solving a separate but related optimization problem with potentially overall system constraints (e.g., market-clearing conditions) c. conomic and engineering problems that arent specifically derived from optimization problems (e.g., spatial price equilibria) d. roblems in which both primal and dual variables (prices) appear in the original formulation (e.g., The National Energy Modeling System (NEMS) or its precursor, PIES). As such, complementarity models are a very general and flexible modeling format. A natural question is why concentrate on energy markets for this complementarity approach? s it turns out, energy or other markets that have game theoretic aspects are best modeled by complementarity problems. The reason is that the traditional perfect competition approach no longer applies due to deregulation and restructuring of these markets and thus the corresponding optimization problems may no longer hold. Also, in some instances it is important in the original model formulation to involve both primal variables (e.g., production) as well as dual variables (e.g., market prices) for public and private sector energy planning. Traditional optimization problems can not directly handle this mixing of primal and dual variables but complementarity models can and this makes them all that more effective for decision-makers.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Materials for Engineering: A Fundamental Design Approach'
(The last decade has seen an increase in the use of ceramics, composites and polymers, some of which are still at the experimental stage and require a totally new engineering approach.
Materials for Engineering is an innovative text which looks at the mechanical properties of these materials, and those of traditional metals, from the perspective of the engineer, that is, placing the emphasis on how to deal with the material properties in design, rather than concentrating on the physical properties of the materials themselves.
Assuming only a basic knowledge of the properties of materials, the authors discuss the strength of materials by looking at elastic design, yield criteria, brittle fracture, fracture mechanic creep, fatigue and time dependent failure.
Ceramics and brittle materials are covered in depth. Defects and flaws and the design problems that may be encountered are covered, followed by thermal stresses and general design practice.
A section on composites includes: the elastic properties of composites, the strengths of fibre composites, and the fracture and toughness of composites. Finally the authors detail metal and ceramic matrix composites. Full references and examples (most with solutions) complete the text.
Materials for Engineering will be welcomed by undergraduate students of Mechanical, Production and Materials Engineering and also by practising engineers wishing to keep abreast of new developments.
