  • Recently, several solutions to the robot localisation problem have been proposed in the scientific community. In this chapter we present a localisation of a visual guided quadruped walking robot in a dynamic environment. We investigate the quality of robot localisation and landmark detection, in which robots perform the RoboCup competition (Kitano et al., 1997). The first part presents an algorithm to determine any entity of interest in a global reference frame, where the robot needs to locate landmarks within its surroundings.

  • In consultation with many local organisations and groups the Environment Agency has produced Catchment Flood Management Plans (CFMPs) covering the main 68 catchments in England. These documents set out the strategic context for managing flood risk in a catchment, helping decision makers by identifying the policy options being adopted to manage flood risks. They also help form the position we take in our work to manage assets, watercourses, flood forecasting, and to help land use planning and development.

  • The acceleration of globalization and the growth of emerging economies present signifi cant opportunities for business expansion. One of the quickest ways to achieve effective international expansion is by leveraging the web, which allows for the technological connectivity of global markets and opportunities to compete on a global basis. To systematically engage and thrive in this networked global economy, professionals and students need a new skill set – one that can help them develop, manage, assess, and optimize efforts to successfully launch websites for tapping global markets.

  • In 1992, the first United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, popularly known as the Rio Earth Summit, was convened in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to address the state of the environment and sustainable development. The Earth Summit yielded several important agreements including “Agenda 21”, a plan of action adopted by over 178 governments to address human impacts on the environment at local, national and global levels, and key treaties on climate change, desertification and biodiversity.

  • Written by two of the foremost researchers in the field, this book studies the local times of Markov processes by employing isomorphism theorems that relate them to certain associated Gaussian processes. It builds to this material through self-contained but harmonized “mini-courses” on the relevant ingredients, which assume only knowledge of measuretheoretic probability. The streamlined selection of topics creates an easy entrance for students and experts in related fields.

  • While population grew at rates beyond Malthus’ imagination (see Figure 1), food production expanded even faster, and the debate has shifted to concerns about the role of population growth in the depletion of other natural resources, such as fossil fuels and minerals; in the degradation of renewable resources, such as forests, fisheries and biodiversity; and in the despoliation of local environment and the global climate.

  • Global Scaling Up Handwashing is a Water and Sanitation Program (WSP) project focused on learning how to apply innovative promotional approaches to behavior change to generate widespread and sustained improvements in handwashing with soap at scale among women of reproductive age (ages 15-49) and primary school-aged children (ages 5-9). The project is being implemented by local and national governments with technical support from WSP. For more information, please visit www.wsp.org/scalinguphandwashing.

  • Shrimp farming is an evolving sector of agriculture that creates important economic opportunities in many rural communities plagued by under and unemployment. This water farming practice relies on the wise and responsible use of coastal natural resources and habitats. The long-term, local success of shrimp farming is also influenced by global market forces, consumer preferences and international food safety standards. Advances depend on accessibility of critical research, educational and laboratory services.

  • For much of history, few things have mattered more to humans than their relations with soil. This is evidenced by a rich historical literature on aspects of soil management and soil fertility, dating back to texts of ancient civilizations of the Middle East, the Mediterranean, China, and India (see McNeill and Winiwarter 2004).

  • In the early years of oil drilling and production, wells were primarily drilled on land to moder- ate depths and with relatively minor horizontal offsets, and an empirical understanding of the impact of geological forces and Earth material properties on required drilling practice was de- veloped by region. Successful practices were defined by trial and (sometimes costly and spectacular) error.

  • Bilateral Investment Treaty’s effects on FDI and the domestic business environment remain unexplored despite the proliferation of treaties over the past several years. This paper asks whether BITs stimulate FDI flows to host countries, and if the treaties have any impact on the environment for domestic private investment. We find a weak relationship between BITs and FDI. However, for risky countries, BITs attract greater amounts of FDI. We also find a weak relationship between BITs and the domestic investment environment.

  • Various methods for controlling mobile robot systems have been developed which are generally classified into two categories: global planning and local control. Many works, based on the complete knowledge of the robot and the environment, use a global planning method such as artificial potential fields [11], connectivity graph, cell decomposition [12], etc. These methods build some paths (set of sub-goals) which are free of obstacles

  • Smart polymers are macromolecules capable of undergoing rapid, reversible phase transitions from a hydrophilic to a hydrophobic microstructure. These transitions are triggered by small shifts in the local environment, such as slight variations in temperature, pH, ionic strength, or the concentration of specific substances like sugars. Smart polymers have an extensive range of applications, but this book focuses solely on their roles within the fields of bioseparation and biomedicine. Until recently, polymers were considered to be passive participants within these fields.

  • The programming language Python links the database to the “front-end” (main interface) of the timeline. Digital layouts and comps begin to set the visual tone and the aesthetics of an interface, but when the end product is intended for web use, there is no substitute for transferring the design into an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and reproducing the design with HTML, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), and Javascript. Illustrator and Photoshop “comps” were recreated in Aptana Studio, the IDE application used to design and build the GDHit interface.

  • The idea for this book began over ten years ago through conversations with Clive Edwards, editor of an agroecosystems series of books. It was clear to both of us that the human intersect with the environment is mediated by social forces that are international, national, and local. But at that point there was little research to demonstrate the nature of the relationships between human institutions and ecosystems.
