Singular perturbation for nonlinear boundary-value problems

Asymptotic solutions of a class of nonlinear boundary-value problems are studied. The problem is a model arising in nuclear energy distribution. For large values of the parameter, the differential ... integer > 2, a > 0 and b > 0, by the method of matched asymptotic expansions. The problem arises in connection with the distribution of the energy released in a nuclear power reactor as a result of a power

Nuclear law revisited as an academic discipline

The existence of a specific legal framework for peaceful uses of nuclear energy has attracted the attention of legal academia since the 1960s. During this period, some academics have argued that ... nuclear law. When defining energy law, the authors mentioned above usually refer to ‘energy resources’ that also include uranium and its associated use in nuclear energy. Consequently, they argue for
