The story of German military cargo ships produced in series programs in the Mediterranean and Black Sea area during the 2nd World War is not well known among naval historians. The “Kriegstransporter” (KT) were German-designed armed cargo ships of 1250 t displacements (700 tdw/ 834 GRT) produced in series in World War II for the Mediterranean and Black Sea theatre of war, only one ship was built in Hamburg. The concept of the “Kriegstransporter” was developed in 1941 by the Kriegsmarine out of the necessity to replace the many losses of German and Italian merchant ships in the Mediterranean. Construction contracts were signed for 60 ships, approximately 40 ships were completed before the end of the war. The much less meaningful program of the “Schwarzmeer-Einheitsschiffe” (SME) was a project for the series production of coastal motor vessels of 706 GRT for the Black Sea theatre of war as there was an awkward shortage of tonnage for the army’s supply routes along the coast. Construction contracts for a total number of 12 units were signed, none of them was completed before the end of the war.While the SMEs played no more role in combat operations in World War II, the KTs were involved in many military encounters with Allied warships and aircraft 1942-1945.

Physics has always influenced other fields, from the mirrors of Archimedes which were supposed to ignite the sails of enemy warships, to the hydrogen bombs which could destroy Sao Paulo and Dusseldorf. More recently, (com putational) statistical physics has been applied to biology, economics, world politics, etc. This book presents some examples in this direction to explain these methods. We do not claim to present a textbook of biology, or a so lution of economic problems; we merely explain how physicists like us did it, in order to encourage others to try similar interdisciplinary work. The theo ries presented here may not be the best ones for the problems but should be the ones closest to statistical physics methods. In most fields we give only the general idea to guide the reader to the original literature; for the Penna model of biological ageing we try to give a more complete overview, including computer programs, so that readers can start their own research immediately in this field. The selection of material follows our own experience, and even with these selected applications we would appreciate if readers would inform us about overlooked literature. We prove our ignorance, if we do not cite impor tant papers. We thank many people, in particular M. Azbel, A. T. Bernardes, S. Dasgupta, S. Galam, H. J. Herrmann, N. Jan, H. Milbrodt, T. J. P. Penna, S. Solomon, D. Sornette, Y. C. Zhang and R.
