The fractal analysis is becoming a very useful tool to process obtained data from chaotic systems in geosciences. It can be used to resolve many ambiguities in this domain. This book contains eight chapters showing the recent applications of the fractal/mutifractal analysis in geosciences. Two chapters are devoted to applications of the fractal analysis in climatology, two of them to data of cosmic and solar geomagnetic data from observatories. Four chapters of the book contain some applications of the (multi-) fractal analysis in exploration geophysics.
Special and general relativity are the theories describing the physics of space
and time. Space and time are explored with clocks and electromagnetic signals.
Therefore, special and general relativity are related to precise clocks and the
thorough understanding of signal propagation. The ever-increasing accuracy
of clocks together with novel methods for precision time transfer and clock
synchronization are pivotal for the new generation of experiments probing the
validity of Einstein’s theories from subatomic distances to cosmic scales....
The Synthesis of Yoga ﬁrst appeared serially in the monthly
review Arya between August 1914 and January 1921. Each
instalment was written immediately before its publication. The
work was left incomplete when the Arya was discontinued. Sri
Aurobindo never attempted to complete the Synthesis;hedid,
however, lightly revise the Introduction, thoroughly revise all
of Part I, “The Yoga of Divine Works”, and signiﬁcantly revise
several chapters of Part II, “The Yoga of Integral Knowledge”.
This report originated in 1999 as a result of discussions between the Committee on
Solar and Space Physics (CSSP) and officials within NASA’s Office of Space Science Sun-
Earth Connections program. As noted in the statement of task (Appendix A), the objective
of the study was to provide a scientific assessment and strategy for the study of
magnetized plasmas in the solar system. By emphasizing the connections between
locally occurring (solar system) structures and processes and their astrophysical counterparts,
the study would contribute to a unified view of cosmic plasma behavior.
The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali are in themselves exceedingly brief, less than ten pages of large type in the
original. Yet they contain the essence of practical wisdom, set forth in admirable order and detail. The theme,
if the present interpreter be right, is the great regeneration, the birth of the spiritual from the psychical man:
the same theme which Paul so wisely and eloquently set forth in writing to his disciples in Corinth, the theme
of all mystics in all lands.
Concentration signifies the state of being at a centre (con and _centrum_). Applied to thought, it is the act of
bringing the mind to a single point. Each human being must practise concentration subjectively and
objectively. In other words, each human being aims with more or less precision at concentration on a point
within and a point without his own world. Concentration "without" is illustrated when you devote all your
attention upon Nature, such as learning a trade, a profession, a science, an art or some form of business. This
is _Evolution_, outgoing or positive mental energy.
