NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER For the first time ever, an international coalition of leading researchers, scientists and policymakers has come together to offer a set of realistic and bold solutions to climate change. All of the techniques described here - some well-known, some you may have never heard of - are economically viable, and communities throughout the world are already enacting them. From revolutionizing how we produce and consume food to educating girls in lower-income countries, these are all solutions which, if deployed collectively on a global scale over the next thirty years, could not just slow the earth's warming, but reach drawdown: the point when greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere peak and begin todecline. So what are we waiting for?

'Sudden' or 'rapid' drawdown is considered to occur when reservoir or other adjacent water levels are lowered at such a rate that little or no drainage occurs in an earth slope at the time the water level is being lowered. Slope stability analyses are routinely performed to calculate the factor of safety for earth slopes subjected to this condition. This study provides a basis for a number of important conclusions regarding the accuracy and the degree of conservatism of the procedures for analyzing rapid drawdown slope stability. The best procedure should have the following characteristics: a. The procedure should employ a measure of shear strength and pore pressure that reflects the actual properties of the soils in the slopes. b. The procedures should use a soundly bases technique for relating shear strength to effective consolidation pressures. and c. The procedure should not include strength components due to to negative pore water pressures to avoid overestimating factors of safety for conditions where partial drainage occurs during drawdown. A method with these characteristics can be conceived as a combination of methods currently in use. Keywords: Effective stress analysis; Pore pressure coefficients; Shear strength envelopes.

Stochastic Drawdowns consists of some recent advances on Dr Hongzhong Zhang's own quantitative research of the well-known risk measures, drawdowns and maximum drawdowns. In this book, the author provides an extensive probabilistic study of different aspects of drawdown risks, which include the drawdown risk in finite time-horizons, the speed of market crashes (drawdowns), the frequency of drawdowns, the occupation time (time in distress), and the duration of drawdowns. Leveraging the knowledge in stochastic calculus, Lévy processes and optimal stopping, these topics can be considered as problems in advanced applied stochastic processes, and insurance/financial mathematics. The book also offers a number of applications of drawdowns in financial risk management, insurance, and algorithmic trading, including schemes on hedging and synthesizing of maximum drawdown options, (cancellable) drawdown insurance contracts and their fair premium, as well as optimal trading under drawdown-type constraints such as trailing stops. It is the goal of this book to offer a comprehensive characterization of drawdown risks and a handful of applications of drawdown in practice. On the one hand, the book enables interested students and researchers to learn the state-of-art probabilistic research on drawdowns, and explore new mathematical problems that are of practical importance to the financial industry. On the other hand, the book provides financial practitioners with access to a variety of analytically tractable measurements of drawdown risks, and the insight into hedging, optimal trading and execution amid challenges of these risks. Contents: Introduction Drawdown Measures: Drawdowns Preceding Drawups in a Finite Time-Horizon Drawdowns and the Speed of Market Crashes Frequency of Drawdowns in a Brownian Motion Model Occupation Times Related to Drawdowns Duration of Drawdowns under Lévy Models Applications of Drawdown: Maximum Drawdown Insurance Using Options Fair Premiums of Drawdown Insurances Optimal Trading with a Trailing Stop Appendix: Briefly on One-Dimensional Linear Diffusions Readership: Senior undergraduate and graduate students equipped with the knowledge of stochastic processes and financial practitioners who are interested in optimal trading and execution.
