For many students a College Algebra course represents the first opportunity to discover the
beauty and practical power of mathematics. Thus instructors are faced with the challenge
of teaching the concepts and skills of algebra while at the same time imparting a sense of
its utility in the real world. In this edition, as in the previous four editions, our aim is to
provide instructors and students with tools they can use to meet this challenge.
The emphasis is on understanding concepts. Certainly all instructors are committed to
encouraging conceptual understanding.
Removing the constraint of acyclicity fromthe acyclic peer-to-peer architecture,
we obtain the general peer-to-peer architecture. Like the acyclic peer-to-peer
architecture, this architecture allows bidirectional communication between two
servers, but the topology can form a general undirected graph, possibly having
multiple paths between servers. An example is shown in Figure 7.
The advantage of the general peer-to-peer architecture over the previous
two architectures is that it requires less coordination and offers more ﬂexi-
bility in the conﬁguration of connections among servers.
Math is an integral part of our increasingly complex daily life. Calculus for the
Managerial, Life, and Social Sciences, Seventh Edition, attempts to illustrate this
point with its applied approach to mathematics. Our objective for this Seventh
Edition is twofold: (1) to write an applied text that motivates students and (2) to
make the book a useful teaching tool for instructors. We hope that with the present
edition we have come one step closer to realizing our goal.
The RoboCup Soccer Simulation is considered as a good application of the Multi-Agent
Systems. By using the multi-agent approach, each team in this simulation is considered as a multiagent
system, which is coordinated each other and by a coach agent. Different strategies have been
proposed in order to improve the efficiency of this agent. In this paper, we investigate firstly the
coordination in several modern teams by identifying all of their disadvantages.
Transforming syntactic representations in order to improve parsing accuracy has been exploited successfully in statistical parsing systems using constituency-based representations. In this paper, we show that similar transformations can give substantial improvements also in data-driven dependency parsing. Experiments on the Prague Dependency Treebank show that systematic transformations of coordinate structures and verb groups result in a 10% error reduction for a deterministic data-driven dependency parser.
Past work on English coordination has focused on coordination scope disambiguation. In Japanese, detecting whether coordination exists in a sentence is also a problem, and the state-of-the-art alignmentbased method specialized for scope disambiguation does not perform well on Japanese sentences. To take the detection of coordination into account, this paper introduces a ‘bypass’ to the alignment graph used by this method, so as to explicitly represent the non-existence of coordinate structures in a sentence.

This function is defined for all x e (-1. 1). and its range consists of all y. The arctanh x is an odd, nonperiodic. unbounded function that crosses the coordinate axes at the origin x = 0, y = 0. This is an increasing function in its domain with no points ofextremum and an inflection point at the origin. It has two vertical asymptotes: x = ±1. The graph of the function y = arctanh x is given in Fig. 2.20.
