Washington DC: Center for Strategic and International Studies, 2011. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Wraps. vii, , 34,  pages. Oversized volume, measuring 11 inches by 8-12 inches. Minor cover soiling noted. Includes Executive Summary; Introduction; The Value and Objectives of U.S.-Russian Arms Control; The Next Round: Contrasting U.S. and Russian Objectives; A Way Forward; Getting the Process Right; U.S. Nuclear Weapons and Stockpile Management; Conclusions; and Appendix: Warhead Verification. While Russia's primary goal is to curtail U.S. nonnuclear capabilities, in particular ballistic missile defense and conventional prompt global strike, Washington's interests lie with Russian nuclear weapons. Russia's strategic forces remain one of the few truly existential threats faced by the United States. Consequently, it is firmly in the U.S. national interest to try to bolster strategic stability through arms control.

Washington DC: U. S, Department of Energy, Office of Science, 2010. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Wraps. 28 pages, plus covers. Illustrations (most with color). Minor edge curling. An early focus on Simulation-Based Engineering and Science (SBE&S). The report includes an Executive Summary and sections on Materials science and chemistry: Pathway to innovation; and Accelerating discovery and innovation in materials science and chemistry; and Foundational challenges in predictive materials science and chemistry; and Materials and chemistry by design: Creating an innovation ecosystem, and Benefits of predictive capability in science and engineering, and appendices of the agenda and a list of participants. The workshop concluded that the promise of an innovative 'ecosystem' required: Integration of synthesis, processing, characterization, theory, and simulation and modeling; Achieving/strengthening predictive capability in foundational challenge; Developing validated computational approaches that span vast differences in time and length scales; Experimental validation and quantification of uncertainty in simulation and modeling; Robust and sustainable computational infrastructure, including software and applications; and Efficient transfer and incorporation of simulation-based engineering and science in industry. Laid in the agenda and participants of a subsequent Simulations Summit, held October 13, 2010 in Washington, DC. There were over 70 attendees, including such luminaries as: Michael Anastasio, Steven Chu, Nicholas Donofrio, Paul Hommert, Steve Koonin, Dimitri Kusnezov, Thom Mason, George Miller,Ernest Moniz, and Victor Reis. This was a highly influential exploration of SBE&S.
