Download E-books Global theory of minimal surfaces: proceedings of the Clay Mathematics Institute 2001 Summer School, Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, California, June 25-July 27, 2001 PDF

By David Hoffman

In the summertime of 2001, the Mathematical Sciences study Institute (MSRI) hosted the Clay arithmetic Institute summer season tuition at the worldwide concept of minimum Surfaces. in the course of that time, MSRI turned the area heart for the research of minimum surfaces: one hundred fifty mathematicians---undergraduates, post-doctoral scholars, younger researchers, and global experts---participated in the main huge assembly ever hung on the topic in its 250-year heritage. the bizarre nature of the assembly made it attainable to place jointly this selection of expository lectures and really good studies, giving a breathtaking view of a necessary topic provided by way of best researchers within the box. the topics coated contain minimum and constant-mean-curvature submanifolds, geometric degree concept and the double-bubble conjecture, Lagrangian geometry, numerical simulation of geometric phenomena, functions of suggest curvature to common relativity and Riemannian geometry, the isoperimetric challenge, the geometry of absolutely nonlinear elliptic equations and functions to the topology of third-dimensional manifolds. The big choice of themes lined make this quantity appropriate for graduate scholars and researchers drawn to differential geometry.

Download E-books Non-negative Matrix Factorization Techniques: Advances in Theory and Applications PDF

By Ganesh R. Naik

This booklet collects new effects, recommendations and additional advancements of NMF. The open difficulties mentioned contain, e.g. in bioinformatics: NMF and its extensions utilized to gene expression, series research, the sensible characterization of genes, clustering and textual content mining and so forth. The study effects formerly scattered in several medical journals and convention complaints are methodically gathered and offered in a unified shape. whereas readers can learn the booklet chapters sequentially, each one bankruptcy is additionally self-contained. This booklet could be a solid reference paintings for researchers and engineers drawn to NMF, and will even be used as a guide for college kids and pros trying to achieve a greater figuring out of the newest functions of NMF.

This ebook is an intensive treatise at the newest advances in special effects know-how and its purposes. either in company and business components in addition to in study and improvement, you will discover during this publication a major devel­ opment of recent tools and instruments for special effects. They play crucial roles in improving the productiveness and caliber of human paintings via desktop graph­ ics and purposes. wide assurance of the varied international of special effects is the privilege of this e-book, that's the complaints of InterGraphics '83. This used to be a really interna­ tional special effects convention and convey, held in Tokyo, April 11-14, 1983, backed through the area machine Grpphics organization (WCGA) and arranged through the Japan administration organization (JMA) in coopera'tion' with ·~CM-SIGGRAPH. InterGraphics has over 15 hundreds of thousands members. This publication includes seven Chapters. the 1st chapters are at the fundamentals of special effects, and the rest 5 chapters are devoted to usual appli­ cation components of special effects. bankruptcy 1 includes 4 papers on "graphics techniques". thoughts to generate jag loose photographs, to simulate electronic good judgment, to reveal loose surfaces and to have interaction with three dimensional (3D) shaded pics are awarded. bankruptcy 2 covers "graphics criteria and 3D versions" in 5 papers. papers talk about the middle average and the GKS commonplace. 3 papers de­ scribe a number of 3D versions and their evaluations.

Download E-books Global Jihadism: Theory and Practice (Cass Series on Political Violence) PDF

By Jarret Brachman

International Jihadism exposes the center doctrine and technique of today’s worldwide Jihadist circulation. the 1st 1/2 the e-book explores the guidelines upon which teams comparable to Al Qaeda are outfitted, together with the ideas of Jihad, al-Wala wal-Bara, Takfir and Tawhid. Jarret Brachman exposes a style of Jihadist strategic scholarship that has been nearly overlooked within the West and is helping to situate it in the broader Salafist non secular circulation. the second one part explores the pondering and actions of Al Qaeda’s propaganda laptop, explaining its intricacies and idiosyncrasies. It comprises case reports at the upward push and fall of worldwide Jihadist terrorism in Saudi Arabia post-9/11, and highlights the explosive result of bringing concept to undergo on perform within the uk over the last two decades. The ebook concludes through offering leading edge suggestions for fighting the worldwide Jihadist ideology.

Download E-books Applications of Control Theory in Ecology: Proceedings of the Symposium on Optimal Control Theory held at the State University of New York, Syracuse, New York, August 10–16, 1986 PDF

By Marc Mangel (auth.), Yosef Cohen (eds.)

Control concept might be approximately labeled as deterministic or stochastic. each one of those can extra be subdivided into video game concept and optimum keep watch over idea. The vital challenge of regulate thought is the so known as restricted maximization (which-­ with moderate modifications--is such as minimization). you can then say, heuristically, that the key challenge of keep an eye on concept is to discover the utmost of a few functionality criterion (or criteria), given a collection of constraints. the start line is, after all, a mathematical illustration of the functionality criterion (or criteria)-­ often referred to as the target functional--along with the limitations. while the target sensible is unmarried valued (Le. , while there's just one aim to be maximized), then one is facing optimum keep an eye on concept. whilst a couple of aim is concerned, and the goals are usually incompatible, then one is facing video game thought. the 1st paper bargains with stochastic optimum keep an eye on, utilizing the dynamic programming procedure. the subsequent papers take care of deterministic optimum regulate, and the ultimate take care of purposes of video game thought to ecological difficulties. In his contribution, Dr. Marc Mangel applies the dynamic proQramming technique, as converted via his contemporary work--with Dr. Colin Clark, from the collage of British Columbia (Mangel and Clark 1987}*--to modelling the "behavioral judgements" of bugs. the target sensible is a degree of health. Readers drawn to special improvement of the subject material may possibly seek advice Mangel (1985). My contributions take care of functions of optimum keep an eye on theory.

Download E-books By Thomas A. Tweed - Crossing and Dwelling: A Theory of Religion PDF

By Thomas A. Tweed

Starting with a Cuban Catholic ritual in Miami, this ebook takes readers on a momentous theoretical trip towards a brand new knowing of faith.

He explores how the non secular hire tropes, artifacts, rituals, and associations to mark obstacles and to prescribe and proscribe other kinds of routine throughout these limitations; and the way religions permit and constrain terrestrial, corporeal, and cosmic crossings. Drawing on insights from the normal and social sciences, Tweed's paintings is grounded within the gritty details of designated non secular practices, at the same time it strikes towards principles approximately cross-cultural styles. At a time whilst students in lots of fields shrink back from generalizations, this booklet bargains a in charge solution to imagine extensively approximately faith, a subject matter that's an important for realizing the modern global. Lucid in motives, undertaking presentation, wealthy in examples, Crossing and residing has profound implications for the examine and educating of faith in our day. (20060215)
