Chapters present principles and techniques in an order that roughly mirrors the application development process itself, from gathering requirements through final testing. The focus is on understanding and enhancing applications using classic techniques, in circumstances where it is impractical to rewrite applications using XPages. Each chapter focuses upon a particular aspect of Domino Web applications and provides guidance, recommendations

This is the ﬁrst in a series of papers whereby we combine the classical approach to exponential Diophantine equations (linear forms in logarithms, Thue equations, etc.) with a modular approach based on some of the ideas of the proof of Fermat’s Last Theorem. In this paper we give new improved bounds for linear forms in three logarithms. We also apply a combination of classical techniques with the modular approach to show that the only perfect powers in the Fibonacci sequence are 0, 1, 8 and 144 and the only perfect powers in the Lucas sequence are 1...
In this book, Alexander Parmington combines an examination of space, access
control, and sculptural themes and placement to propose how images and texts
controlled movement in ClassicMaya cities. Using Palenque as a case study, this
book analyzes speciﬁc building groups and corresponding sculptures to provide
insight into the hierarchical distribution and use of ritual and administrative
space in temple and palace architecture. Identifying which spaces were the most
accessible and thereforemore public and which spaces weremore segregated and
consequently more private, Dr.
Chemometric Techniques for Quantitative Analysis shows how to produce and use quantitative analytical calibrations in a laboratory or production environment following a variety of methods, how to estimate the time and resources needed to develop analytical calibrations, and how to employ the quantitative software provided with a wide range of instruments and commercial software packages. Among several, this bestselling volume covers basic and classical approaches, component regression; PCR in action; partial least squares; PLS in action.
This book is dedicated to the rapidly grown field of microporous ceramic membranes
with separating layers of pore diameter less than 2 nm. In spite of the recent rapid growth
of the research effort directed towards the development of microporous ceramic
membranes the field is still considered to be at its infancy and exhibits a significant future
The practice of drawing…distilled to its essential elements.In this elegant and inspiring primer, master contemporary artist and author Juliette Aristides breaks down the drawing process into small, manageable lessons; introduces time-tested principles and techniques that
In this chapter, you will learn to: Explain the terms random experiment, outcome, sample space, permutations, and combinations; define probability; describe the classical, empirical, and subjective approaches to probability; explain and calculate conditional probability and joint probability;...
Chapter 5 - A survey of probability concepts. In this chapter, the learning objectives are: Define probability; describe the classical, empirical, and subjective approaches to probability; explain the terms experiment, event, outcome, permutations, and combinations; define the terms conditional probability and joint probability; calculate probabilities using the rules of addition and rules of multiplication.
As with all good Windows programs — and AutoCAD is a very good
Windows program — you can make your drawings appear on-screen in
For a start, there’s the . . . er, Start button, the one that Mick and the Rolling
Stones sang about way back when Bill Gates launched Windows 95 on an
unsuspecting world. To get to AutoCAD 2007 (or AutoCAD LT 2007), you click

you’re at the end of the line because the last AutoCAD 2007 has a unique pro-

A few years after this classic book on how to improve your brainpower was first published, a fairly average student announced that he intended to try for a place at Cambridge University. His chances were assessed as ‘slim’, since his grades were usually unexceptional. But with the help of Use Your Head, he went on to achieve four As at A-level, two starred firsts at Cambridge and a top job with a multi-national company. Teach you the vital skills of Learning How to Think and Learn, Increase your creative thinking and problem-solving capacity, Enable you to make the best of...
This mesmerizing exploration of the most subtle, elusive, and effective form of power is a masterful analysis of civilization's greatest seducers, from Cleopatra to JFK, as well as the classic literature of seduction from Freud to Kierkegaard and Ovid to Casanova. Robert Greene once again identifies the rules of a timeless, amoral game and explores how to cast a spell, break down resistance, and, ultimately, compel a target to surrender.
The fifth edition of this classic book continues its excellence in teaching numerical analysis and techniques. Interesting and timely applications motivate an understanding of methods and analysis of results. Suitable for students with mathematics and engineering backgrounds, the breadth of topics (partial differential equations, systems of nonlinear equations, and matrix algebra), provide comprehensive and flexible coverage of all aspects of all numerical analysis.
Most modern programming languages provide support for some type of object that can hold
a variable number of elements. These objects are referred to as collections, and they can have
elements added and removed with ease without having to worry about proper memory allocation.
If you’ve programmed with classic ASP before, you’re probably familiar with the
Scripting.Dictionary object, a collection object that references each element with a
textual key. A collection that stores objects in this fashion is known as a hash table.
A major objective of this book is to fill the gap between traditional logic design principles and logic design/optimization techniques used in practice. Over the last two decades several techniques for computer-aided design and optimization of logic circuits have been developed. However, underlying theories of these techniques are inadequately covered or not covered at all in undergraduate text books. This book covers not only the "classical" material found in current text books but also selected materials that modern logic designers need to be familiar with
Principal component analysis (PCA) and the closely related Karhunen-Lo` ve transe form, or the Hotelling transform, are classic techniques in statistical data analysis, feature extraction, and data compression, stemming from the early work of Pearson . Given a set of multivariate measurements, the purpose is to ﬁnd a smaller set of variables with less redundancy, that would give as good a representation as possible.
The signal processing task is a very critical issue in the majority of new technological inventions
and challenges in a variety of applications in both science and engineering fields.
Classical signal processing techniques have largely worked with mathematical models that
are linear, local, stationary, and Gaussian. They have always favored closed-form tractability
over real-world accuracy.
I wrote this text for a one semester course at the sophomore-junior level. Our experience
with students taking our junior physics courses is that even if they’ve had the mathematical
prerequisites, they usually need more experience using the mathematics to handle it efficiently
and to possess usable intuition about the processes involved. If you’ve seen infinite series in a
calculus course, you may have no idea that they’re good for anything.
Principal Component Analysis and Whitening
Principal component analysis (PCA) and the closely related Karhunen-Lo` ve transe form, or the Hotelling transform, are classic techniques in statistical data analysis, feature extraction, and data compression, stemming from the early work of Pearson . Given a set of multivariate measurements, the purpose is to ﬁnd a smaller set of variables with less redundancy, that would give as good a representation as possible. This goal is related to the goal of independent component analysis (ICA).
The Fuzzy Set Theory developed by L. Zadeh (Zadeh 1965) as a possible way to
handle uncertainty is particularly useful for the representation of vague expert
knowledge and processing uncertain or imprecise information. The Fuzzy Set
Theory is based on an extension of the classical meaning of the term "set" and
formulates specific logical and arithmetical operations for processing information
defined in the form of fuzzy sets and fuzzy rules.
