Long term projections of power: political, economic, and military forecasting by Oskar Morgenstern ( Book )
6 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
General report on the economics of the peaceful uses of underground nuclear explosions by Oskar Morgenstern ( Book )
4 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Plowshare program of the Atomic Energy Commission sets forth to put nuclear explosives to peaceful, economic use. The present report evaluates the major fields of application proposed up to now for such explosives. They are the stimulation of gas and oil reservoirs, production of shale oil, applications to mining, cratering, and a list of various other projects, among them storage of natural gas, waste disposal and water resource management

Long term projections of political and military power by Klaus P Heiss ( Book )
4 editions published between 1973 and 1974 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Techniques of Long Term Projections were evaluated. Among these the most useful tools were identified and applied. Major results: Japan and Western Europe will be increasingly dependent on outside energy resource support which may induce political/military dependence. China was identified as increasingly expansive in economic development; capable of sustaining industrial growth rates between 10 and 20 percent over the next decades. Even though, indications are that by 1990 China will only have caught up in absolute terms with the level of economic development of the 1970 USSR. The production and consumption of energy, and the regional energy resource balances were found to be the only major physical variable that will importantly influence regional power relations over the next decades.

Long term projections of power: review and outline by Klaus P Heiss ( Book )
2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Techniques of long term projections were evaluated. Among these the most useful tools were identified and applied. Major forecasts are that Japan and Western Europe will be increasingly dependent on outside energy resource support which may induce political/military dependence, and that mainland China is identified as increasingly expansive in economic development, capable of sustaining industrial growth rates between 15 and 20 percent over the next decades, reaching the level of economic development of the 1970 USSR.

Technical and Economic Potentials of Shale Oil Production by Nuclear Explosives ( )
1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The largest single reserve of hydrocarbons known to exist anywhere in the world is given by the oil shales of the Green River formation. in the western part of the United States. With available conventional techniques only an insignificant part of these resources could be tapped, and that only at great cost and under considerable technical uncertainties. It is on this basis that the Oil Shale Advisory Board came in 1964 to the negative conclusion that such an oil shale industry would not be competitive under conditions as they were at that time. In the following report a new technology is discussed which was first proposed in 1959, but which has been developed mainly since 1964: the in situ production of oil from shale by large underground retorts created by nuclear explosives. The first part of the present report describes this new process; the second part gives an analysis of the United States and the world endowments with crude oil resources and oil shale deposits and finally, the third part deals with expected cost estimates of this new technology as compared with present crude oil prices and potential costs of conventional shale oil production
GAME THEORY AND HUMAN CONFLICTS ( Book )
1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Review of Bruno de Finetti's article 'La teoria dei Giochi' (1963) and comments on the history of game theory, the role of minimax theorem in zero sum games and non-zero sum games, its implications for the solution of social conflicts as seen by de Finetti. (Author)

The Economic Potentials of Natural Gas Production Stimulation by Nuclear Explosions ( )
1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The present report describes the technical and economic potentials of gas stimulation by nuclear explosives. It is part of a larger study of Plowshare whose principal aim is to analyze, on the basis of all available technological information, the economic consequences which various Plowshare projects would entail. The present report shows that there exists a sufficiently firm body of information which will have to be enlarged and improved by experiments specifically related to gas stimulation to confirm the statement that gas stimulation can become one of the first technically and economically feasible applications of the peaceful uses of nuclear explosives. From this study it appears that gas stimulation can be applied with profit in existing tight gas fields which can not be exploited with conventional techniques. The study further states that if the existing body of information is confirmed, the peaceful application of nuclear explosives would increase the United States recoverable natural gas resources by amounts greatly in excess of known supplies. Specifically, it appears that the increase would extend the present supply of gas by adding a supply of at least 18 years. The true figure might in fact exceed 55 years additional supplies, even allowing for a substantial annual increase in demand by the United States economy
