Physically-Based Modelling and Simulation of Climate and Climatic Change
Economics of Information Security applies economics not to generate
breakthroughs in theoretical economics, but rather breakthroughs in
understanding the problems of security. Security, privacy and
trusted computing are examined distinctly, using the tools of
economics, and as elements of a larger dynamic system. Economics of
Information Security is designed for researchers and managers
struggling to understand the risks in organizations dependent on
secure networks. This book is also suitable for students in
computer science, policy and management.
` These two volumes are a useful contribution to the literature on climatic modelling, and I am pleased to have them in my personal library. The editor, Michael Schlesinger, deserves to be congratulated on his efforts, not only in seeing the Institute proceedings through to publication, but also in organizing the overall meeting. I particularly liked the artistic sketches by David Warrilow included at the front of the individual volumes - a very nice editorial inclusion. ' Ecomod, 9 (1-2) June 1991
