  • The Silk Road in World History (repost)

    The Silk Road in World History
    English | ISBN: 0195161742 | edition 2010 | PDF | 168 pages | 3,3 mb

    The Silk Road was the contemporary name for a complex of ancient trade routes linking East Asia with Central Asia, South Asia, and the Mediterranean world. This network of exchange emerged along the borders between agricultural China and the steppe nomads during the Han Dynasty (206BCE-220CE), in consequence of the inter-dependence and the conflicts of these two distinctive societies.

    Curtis Lee occupies the era of rock & roll in between the death of Buddy Holly and the arrival of the Beatles — a period usually thought of as "lost years," because, apart from the Beach Boys, few of the artists involved lingered long on the charts or left an obvious legacy into the next era. Neither did Lee, but two of his songs, "Pretty Little Angel Eyes" and "Under the Moon of Love," evoke vivid associations with that innocent, romantic era.

    Buddy Knox was the first artist of the rock & roll era to write and record his own number one hit, 1957's million-selling classic "Party Doll" — a pioneer of the Lone Star State rockabilly sound that would later earn the name "Tex-Mex," the arc of his career anticipated that of fellow Texan Buddy Holly, yet while Holly is now enshrined in the pantheon of rock's true immortals, Knox's contributions remain sadly underappreciated. This compilation, from Canadian label, contains all the Roulette and Liberty recordings.

    Mère de Louis XIV, le Roi Soleil, Anne d’Autriche est pourtant une reine méconnue, réduite à jouer les femmes frivoles dans « Les Trois Mousquetaires » d’Alexandre Dumas. La beauté de cette infante d’Espagne est célèbre ! Même si on prétend que Louis XIII, son mari, préfère la compagnie des écuyers aux joies du lit conjugal… Mariée à quatorze ans, Anne d’Autriche met vingt-trois ans à donner un dauphin à la France. Devenue veuve, elle devient régente. Contemporaine de Richelieu et Mazarin, elle connaît une des périodes les plus troubles de l’histoire de France. De sa mère, le Roi Soleil disait : « Elle mérite d’être mise au rang de nos plus grands rois ». De l’abbaye du Val de Grâce au château de Saint Germain en Laye, Stéphane Bern nous fait découvrir les lieux magnifiques où elle vécut et tout l’éclat d’un règne sans lequel Louis XIV n’aurait pas été et Versailles n’existerait pas.

    Ek-Tunkel is a set of deep Mexican Native American music from Jorge Reyes. Reyes combines traditional acoustic ethnicity with electric and electronic instruments to create this homage to his ancestry and heritage. He adds nature samples and field recordings for atmospheric effect. The simple melodies and gentle percussion allow listeners to float in and out of the psycho-acoustic sound worlds. The deep spirituality of these native cultures is a soft and warm destination. This is a relaxing journey. This CD will appeal to fans of Luis Paniagua, Robert Rich, Steve Roach, and Suso Saiz.

    Teaching Mathematical Reasoning in Secondary School Classrooms
    English | 1 edition | October 21, 2009 | ISBN-10: 0387097414 | 225 pages | PDF | 3.38 MB

    For too many students, mathematics consists of facts in a vacuum, to be memorized because the instructor says so, and to be forgotten when the course of study is completed. In this all-too-common scenario, young learners often miss the chance to develop skills—specifically, reasoning skills—that can serve them for a lifetime. The elegant pages of Teaching Mathematical Reasoning in Secondary School Classrooms propose a more positive solution by presenting a reasoning- and discussion-based approach to teaching mathematics, emphasizing the connections between ideas, or why math works.

  • Theory and Practice of Algorithms in (Computer) Systems (repost)

    English | 2011 | ISBN: 3642197531 | 275 pages | PDF | 3,4 MB

    This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the First International ICST Conference on Theory and Practice of Algorithms in (Computer) Systems, TAPAS 2011, held in Rome, Italy, in April 2011. The 25 papers presented, including three short papers by invited speakers, were carefully reviewed and selected from 45 submissions. The papers all feature original research in the design, implementation and evaluation of algorithms with special focus on algorithms for combinatorial optimization problems, and to real-world applications, engineering and experimental analysis of algorithms – thus fostering the cooperation among researchers in computer science, networking, discrete mathematics, mathematical programming and operations research.

  • Soft Methods for Integrated Uncertainty Modelling (repost)

    Soft Methods for Integrated Uncertainty Modelling
    English | ISBN: 3540347763 | edition 2006 | PDF | 413 pages | 3 mb

    These conferences provide a forum for discussion and research into the fusion of soft methods with probability and statistics, with the ultimate goal of integrated uncertainty modelling in complex systems involving human factors. In addition to probabilistic factors such as measurement error and other random effects, the modelling process often requires us to make qualitative and subject judgments that cannot easily be translated into precise probability values.

    English | ISBN: 1848003838 | edition 2008 | PDF | 303 pages | 10.4 mb

    Reliability and Risk Issues in Large Scale Safety-critical Digital Control Systems provides some important coverage of reliability issues and their corresponding countermeasures in the field of large-scale digital control systems, from the hardware and software in digital systems to the human operators who supervise the overall process of large-scale systems. Unlike other books which examine theories and issues in individual fields, this book reviews important problems and countermeasures across the fields of hardware and system reliability, software reliability, verification and validation, digital systems, human factors engineering and human reliability analysis.

    English | ISBN: 1848000626 | edition 2007 | PDF | 271 pages | 4,8 mb

    Here you’ll find a comprehensive insight into the intelligence and dexterity of robotic multi-fingered hands from both the physical and control-theoretic viewpoints. It focuses on the problem of how to control dexterous movements of fingers interacting with an object in the execution of everyday tasks. It moves on to clarify what kinds of sensory-motor coordinated signals are necessary and sufficient for realizing stable grasping as well as object manipulation.
