This work focuses on the application of dynamic game theory and control theory to analyze a number of important issues in the interaction between economic and environmental problems. The authors provide research results, mathematical models and prescriptions for public policy tools to prevent economic and natural systems from taking unsustainable development paths. The book should be of interest to research workers in industry and university, including engineers, mathematicians, economists and public policy-makers.
