We propose a latent variable model to enhance historical analysis of large corpora. This work extends prior work in topic modelling by incorporating metadata, and the interactions between the components in metadata, in a general way. To test this, we collect a corpus of slavery-related United States property law judgements sampled from the years 1730 to 1866. We study the language use in these legal cases, with a special focus on shifts in opinions on controversial topics across different regions....
Th is book examines how Isaac Newton’s reputation was utilized, and altered,
by British men of science in biographies and historical studies published
between 1820 and 1870.2 A detailed analysis of these works and the contexts
in which they were produced demonstrates the contemporary signifi cance of
these portraits for the scientifi c community.
Europeans have also constituted an important migrant group with significant relationships with their
home countries. Historically, Greeks, Portuguese, Spanish and Turkish are known to have close trans-
national communities abroad. A large amount of funds are remitted to Portugal, while Greek and Turkish
migrants send money from Germany and have established a banking system that allows for remittances to
be more institutionalized.
The Readymade did not and was not able to address itself to
depiction; its concern is with the object, and so if we were to
classify it within the canonical forms it would be sculpture. But
no-one who has thought about it accepts that a Readymade is
sculpture. Rather it is an object that transcends the traditional
classifications and stands as a model for art as a whole, art as a
historical phenomenon, a logic, and an institution. As Thierry
de Duve has so well demonstrated, this object designates itself
as the abstraction ‘art as such’, the thing that can...
There are five things to keep in mind as you write comments about the beers you judge. First, your
comments should be as positive as possible. Acknowledge the good aspects of the beer rather than
focusing only on the negative characteristics. Not only does this help make any negative comments
easier to take as a brewer, but it gives your evaluation more credibility. Second, and related, be polite in
everything that you write about a beer. Sarcastic and deprecating remarks should never be made on a
scoresheet. Third, be descriptive and avoid using ambiguous terms like “nice.

The student of India who would at the same time be an historian, discovers to his sorrow that the land of his researches is lamentably poor in historical sources. And if within the realm of historical investigation, a more seductive charm lies for him in the analysis of great personalities than in ascertaining the course of historical development, then verily may he look about in vain for such personalities in the antiquity and middle ages of India. Not that the princely thrones were wanting in great men in ancient India, for we find abundant traces of them in Hindu...
Electrochemical systems—e.g., batteries, capacitors, and fuel cells—are an integral
part of modern technology. Electrochemical techniques, especially potentiometry
and voltammetry, are indispensable for state-of-the-art analysis, and also for fundamental
studies of the properties of solution species and solid phases and materials.
Last, but not least, electrochemical concepts for understanding charge transfer reactions
entered the fields of biochemistry and biophysics.

Martin J. Henn's Parmenides of Elea offers to the reader a reinvigorating verse translation of the Diels and Kranz B-Fragments of Parmenides cast in rhyming couplet iambic pentameter. Placing Parmenides in his proper historical context by taking seriously the impact of Persian Zoroastrianism on his developing monism, Henn supplies precise interpretation of the most difficult and vexing of Parmenides's fragments, while also providing reliable philosophical analysis of the many seeming contradictions latent in the text.
The fundamentals of the market have historically assisted with healthy capital growth opportunities.
Colliers International has undertaken a resale analysis of fi ve buildings within the CBD in various
geographical locations which provide varying view profi les and levels of fi xtures and fi nishes. Of the
417 resales recorded in the fi ve buildings, 97% of the transactions resulted in positive capital growth
for the owner. This data suggests the Sydney CBD provides prosperous capital growth opportunities
for the astute buyer.
Previous studies have shown that the Department of Defense (DoD) and the military departments have historically underestimated the cost of new weapon systems. Quantifying cost growth is important, but the larger issue is why cost growth occurs. To address that issue, this analysis uses data from Selected Acquisition
Protein disulfide isomerases (PDIs) are enzymes that mediate oxidative pro-tein folding in the endoplasmic reticulum. Understanding of PDIs has
historically been hampered by lack of structural information. Over the last
several years, partial and full-length PDI structures have been solved at an
A native of the Sudetenland, formerly Austria, he received his BS from the
University of Nevada and earned both an MBA (with high distinction) and a DBA
(as a Ford Foundation Fellow) at the Harvard Business School. Dr. Helfert writes
and lectures extensively in his field, and his books and articles have been published
in the United States and abroad. His first literary work, Valley of the
Shadow, a factual historical novel about his experiences in central Europe at the
end of World War II, was published recently.......
Everyone is familiar with money. Yet few realise that currently contentious
issues and financial difficulties are not new. On the contrary, most are firmly
rooted in the past and when examined help to put current economic problems
into historical context.
This book presents a detailed history of money from Charlemagne’s reform
in approximately AD 800 to the end of the Silver Wars in 1896. It also offers a
summary of twentieth century events and an analysis of how the past relates to
Chapter 2 SINGLE-MARKET ANALYSIS. Trading With Tunnel Vision Can Put You on the Losing Side of a Trade. Analysis of the behavior of financial markets for the purpose of identifying and forecasting market direction has historically and traditionally been divided into two distinct schools: fundamental analysis and technical analysis.
This book is idented for three groups: students and professors of structural and ocean engineering, engineers and scientists in academic institutions, goverment laboratories, and inductries involved in research on offshore installations , espetically fluid structure soil interaction, and practicing professional engineers who considers conceptual design and need to employ dynamic analysis to evaluate facilities contructed offshore
ICA by Nonlinear Decorrelation and Nonlinear PCA
This chapter starts by reviewing some of the early research efforts in independent component analysis (ICA), especially the technique based on nonlinear decorrelation, that was successfully used by Jutten, H´ rault, and Ans to solve the ﬁrst ICA problems. e Today, this work is mainly of historical interest, because there exist several more efﬁcient algorithms for ICA. Nonlinear decorrelation can be seen as an extension of second-order methods such as whitening and principal component analysis (PCA).
During the emergence of sociology as an academic discipline the questions
about the origins, status and functions of constitutions were widely
posed. Indeed, for both thematic and methodological reasons, the analysis
of constitutions was a central aspect of early sociology. Sociology
developed, however ambiguously, as a critical intellectual response to the
theories and achievements of the Enlightenment in the eighteenth
century, the political dimension of which was centrally focused on the
theory and practice of constitutional rule....
This collective work deals with the analysis of audiovisual numerical texts or
corpora, which may e.g. form part of an audiovisual library or archive.
The development of methods, tools and conceptual frameworks (or models) for
the concrete analysis of audiovisual texts or corpora is one of the most important
issues for multimedia (audiovisual) digital libraries, archives, collections, etc. and
also for any project or program to compile and disseminate knowledge heritage
(e.g. cultural, scientific etc.).
