Environmental Networks

  • Anna Nagurney
Part of the Advances in Computational Economics book series (AICE, volume 10)


Problems associated with environmental pollution are some of the most pressing ones facing policy-makers today. Concern with the deterioration, for example, of the quality of air and water resources is bringing new methodologies from a variety of disciplines to this problem domain.
