Wien für Mediziner: 15 Spaziergänge durch das alte by Wolfgang Regal

By Wolfgang Regal

"Die Stra?en Wiens sind mit Medizingeschichte gepflastert." So k?nnte guy einen Satz von Karl Kraus abwandeln. Tats?chlich kann sich ein aufmerksamer Besucher kaum durch die Stadt bewegen, ohne durch einen Stra?ennamen, ein Geb?ude, ein Denkmal oder eine Gedenktafel daran erinnert zu werden, dass Wien einst eine medizinische Weltstadt warfare, in die Studenten und ?rzte aus der ganzen Welt pilgerten, um hier zu lernen. Dieser Stadtf?hrer richtet sich speziell an den medizinhistorisch interessierten Besucher – aber auch Bewohner – dieser immer wieder faszinierenden Stadt. In 15 Spazierg?ngen begeben sich die Leser auf eine Spurensuche im alten medizinischen Wien: zum Narrenturm oder zu Freuds Ordination oder den Wirkst?tten ber?hmter ?rzte, durch das Alte Allgemeine Krankenhaus oder zu den wichtigen medizinhistorischen Museen and so on. Mit vielen unbekannten information und Anekdoten bietet der Reisef?hrer auch eine kurze Medizingeschichte Wiens – erg?nzt durch einen kleinen Lokalf?hrer f?r den m?den Besucher.

Sloppy Craft: Postdisciplinarity and the Crafts by Elaine Cheasley Paterson, Susan Surette

By Elaine Cheasley Paterson, Susan Surette

Sloppy Craft: Postdisciplinarity and the Crafts brings jointly major overseas artists and critics to discover the probabilities and boundaries of the assumption of 'sloppy craft' – craft that's messy or unfinished having a look in its execution or visual appeal, or either. The individuals deal with 'sloppiness' in modern artwork and craft practices together with portray, weaving, stitching and ceramics, ponder the significance of conventional options of ability, and the results of sloppiness for a brand new twenty first century emphasis on inter- and postdisciplinarity, in addition to for activist, functionality, queer and Aboriginal practices.

In addition to serious essays, the ebook contains a 'conversation' part during which modern artists and practitioners speak about demanding situations and possibilities of 'sloppy craft' of their perform and instructing, and an afterword through Glenn Adamson.

This quantity offers common methodologies observed by way of Matlab software program to govern a number of sign and picture processing functions. it's performed with discrete and polynomial periodic splines. numerous contributions of splines to sign and snapshot processing from a unified viewpoint are provided. This presentation relies on Zak rework and on Spline Harmonic research (SHA) technique. SHA combines approximation services of splines with the computational potency of the quick Fourier remodel. SHA reduces the layout of other spline kinds comparable to splines, spline wavelets (SW), wavelet frames (SWF) and wavelet packets (SWP) and their manipulations via uncomplicated operations. electronic filters, produced by means of wavelets layout approach, supply beginning to subdivision schemes. Subdivision schemes allow to accomplish speedy particular computation of splines' values at dyadic and triadic rational issues. this is often used for indications and photographs up sampling. as well as the layout of a various library of splines, SW, SWP and SWF, this booklet describes their functions to useful difficulties. The functions comprise up sampling, photograph denoising, restoration from blurred pictures, hydro-acoustic objective detection, to call a couple of. The SWF are applied for photo recovery that was once degraded by way of noise, blurring and lack of major variety of pixels. The publication is observed by way of Matlab dependent software program that demonstrates and implements the entire offered algorithms. The ebook combines huge theoretical publicity with certain description of algorithms, functions and software.

The Allied Arts: Architecture and Craft in Postwar Canada by Sandra Alfoldy

By Sandra Alfoldy

During times of shut collaboration, championed by means of figures like John Ruskin and William Morris, structure and craft have been known as "the allied arts." by way of the mid-twentieth century, notwithstanding, it used to be extra universal for the 2 disciplines to be thought of precise specialist fields, with structure having little to do with studio craft. The Allied Arts investigates the heritage of the complicated dating among craft and structure by way of analyzing the intersection of those components in Canadian public structures. Sandra Alfoldy explains the demanding situations dealing with the advance of the sector of public craft and records the principally overlooked public craft commissions of the post-war period in Canada. The e-book highlights the worldwide issues of fabric, scale, shape, decoration, and identification shared through architects and craftspeople. It additionally examines the ways that the allied arts are mediated via associations and the fragility of craft commissions as soon as thought of a vital part of the equipped setting. contemplating quite a lot of craftspeople, fabrics, and types - from the ceramics of Jack Sures and Jordi Bonnet to the cloth paintings of Mariette Rousseau Vermette and Carole Sabiston - Alfoldy celebrates the successes of architectural craftsmanship. the 1st paintings of its variety, The Allied Arts develops rules concerning the complicated courting among structure and craft that extend well past nationwide obstacles.

As a practiced reporter until eventually her newspaper went to that groovy pressroom within the sky, P.I. Tess Monaghan is aware and loves each inch of her local Baltimore, even the components being slobbered on by way of the sad-sack greyhound she's minding for her uncle. It's a unusual urban the place baseball reigns, yet in recent times murder seems the second one most well liked neighborhood game. company multi-millionaire "Wink" Wynkowski is making an attempt to alter all that by way of bringing seasoned basketball again to city, and everybody's rooting fro him -- till a devastating, muckraking divulge of his lurid prior appears to be like at the entrance web page of the Baltimore Beacon-Light. It's a
surprise even to the Blight's editors, who concept they'd killed the piece. in its place, the piece killed Wink -- who's present in his storage with the auto running.

Now the Blight desires to nail the unknown desktop hacker who planted the deadly tale, and the project is correct up the alley of a former newshound like Tess. however it doesn't take lengthy for her to find deeper, darker secrets and techniques, and to achieve that this case is admittedly extra approximately whacking than hacking. It's simply homicide in Baltimore nowadays -- and Tess Monaghan herself could be subsequent at the list.

Maple and Mathematica, A Problem Solving Approach for by Inna K. Shingareva

By Inna K. Shingareva

Within the historical past of arithmetic there are numerous occasions during which calculationswere played incorrectly for vital sensible applications.Let us examine a few examples, the historical past of computing the quantity πbegan in Egypt and Babylon approximately 2000 years BC, considering that then manymathematicians have calculated π (e.g., Archimedes, Ptolemy, Vi`ete,etc.). the 1st formulation for computing decimal digits of π was once discoveredby J. Machin (in 1706), who used to be the 1st to properly compute100 digits of π. Then many of us used his procedure, e.g., W. Shankscalculated π with 707 digits (within 15 years), even though as a result of mistakesonly the 1st 527 have been right. For the following examples, we will be able to mentionthe background of computing the fine-structure consistent α (that was once firstdiscovered through A. Sommerfeld), and the mathematical tables, distinctive solutions,and formulation, released in lots of mathematical textbooks, werenot validated carefully [25]. those mistakes can have a wide impression onresults received by way of engineers.

3D-Computation of Incompressible Internal Flows: Proceedings by Gabriel Sottas, Inge L. Ryhming

By Gabriel Sottas, Inge L. Ryhming

The goal of the 1989 GAMM Workshop on 3D-Computation of Incompressible inner Flows was once the simulation of a practical incompressible move box in a massive business software. In view of the problems taken with formulating the sort of try case, requiring the supply of an experimental facts base, severe care needed to be taken within the choice of the right kind one. Professor I. L. Ryhming's idea, that the movement via a Francis turbine configuration or components thereof will be possible as a try case, a result of numerical demanding situations in addition to the chance to provide an experimental info base through the use of the experimental amenities of the Hydraulic Machines and Fluid Mechanics Institute (IMHEF) on the Swiss Federal Institute of expertise in Lausanne (EPFL), used to be permitted through the GAMM Committee in April 1987. a systematic committee, shaped lower than the chairmanship of Professor I. L. Ryhming, met a couple of times to settle on the Francis turbine configuration, the try out case standards, and so forth. , wherein the layout enter got here from the water turbine specialists. This committee determined to limit the experiences to the 3 following usual functions for the easiest working aspect of the turbine: • simulation of the 3D circulate in a Francis runner in rotation • simulation of the 3D move within the distributor (stay and consultant vane earrings) of this turbine • simulation of the 3D movement in an elbow draft tube The simultaneous computation of 2 or 3 of those geometries used to be encouraged.
