Green Growth and Sustainable Development
The book examines problems associated with green growth and sustainable development on the basis of recent contributions in economics, natural sciences and applied mathematics, especially optimal control theory. Its main topics include pollution, biodiversity, exhaustible resources and climate change. The integrating framework of the book is dynamic systems theory which offers a common basis for multidisciplinatory research and mathematical tools for solving complicated models, leading to new insights in environmental issues.
Builds an integrated framework for analyzing green growth and sustainable development Provides mathematical solutions of how pollution, biodiversity, exhaustible resources and climate change could be incorporated into models of endogenous economic growth Applies dynamic systems theory to environmental issues, e. g. to the prospects of energy supply
