his volume brings together and expands on research on the subject of energy T security externalities that we have conducted over a twenty-year period. We were motivated to bring this work together by the lack of a comprehensive analysis of the issues involved that was conveniently located in a single document, by the desire to focus that disparate body of research on the assessment of energy security externalities for policy purposes, and by the continuing concern of researchers and policymakers regarding the issues involved. Many misconceptions about energy security continue to persist in spite of a large body of research to the contrary, and we hope that this volume will help to dispel them. Most of our original research was funded by either the U.S. Department of Energy or Resources for the Future (RFF), and all of it was conducted while we served as staff members of RFF. To these institutions, and to the many individuals who commented on our original work, we wish to express our sincere gratitude. We also wish to express our appreciation to our colleague Margaret Walls for her sub stantial contribution to Chapter 7 on transportation policy.
The past three decades have witnessed a spectacular and unsustainable increase in the global demand for energy. This trend acquires a special significance in East Asia as a result of the region's economic growth dependency on heavy industrialization, its fragile security architecture and the traditional rejection of regional States to delegating power to supranational entities. In spite of the latter, the constitutional structures and institutions of East Asia's regional order have undergone a process of gradual reinforcement since the early nineties. This book analyzes the impact of the region's energy needs on both regional and global security and governance.
Resonance Energy Transfer<br> <br> The resonance transfer of energy between molecules, or between sites within a large molecule, plays a central role in many areas of modern chemistry and physics. In biophysics, for example, this process defines the migration of excitation energy within photosynthetic systems (commonly the Frster mechanism). Another important area is in crystals, laser and other laser materials.<br> <br> Resonance Energy Transfer contains a large amount of cutting-edge research which has never before appeared in book form. It is the first comprehensive modern survey of the field, offering a broad, yet detailed view of the mechanisms of energy transfer. The broad range of applications of fluorescence and fluorescence energy transfer to studies in molecular biology and biotechnology ensures that resonance energy transfer will be a vital component of the new science and technology of the next millenium.<br> <br> This book is written for those working with materials, both experimentally and theoretically, as well as for biophysicists and biochemists interested in studying protein structure and dynamics.<br> <br> <br> ISBN 0 471 987328 (Cloth)<br> <br> Foreword supplied by Professor Graham Fleming FRS, University of California, Berkeley, USA.<br> <br> Cover shows the Peripheral Light Harvesting Complex (LH2) of Rps.acidophila kindly supplied by Dr. Stephen M.
