The Names of Plants is an invaluable reference for botanists and horticulturalists. The ﬁrst section gives an historical account of the signiﬁcant changes in the ways by which plants have been known and named. It documents the problems associated with an ever-increasing number of common names of plants, and the resolution of these problems through the introduction of International Codes for both botanical and horticultural nomenclature.
The kissing number problem asks for the maximal number k(n) of equal size nonoverlapping spheres in n-dimensional space that can touch another sphere of the same size. This problem in dimension three was the subject of a famous discussion between Isaac Newton and David Gregory in 1694. In three dimensions the problem was ﬁnally solved only in 1953 by Sch¨tte and van der u Waerden. In this paper we present a solution of a long-standing problem about the kissing number in four dimensions. Namely, the equality k(4) = 24 is proved. The proof is based on a modiﬁcation of...
This paper presents techniques to apply semi-CRFs to Named Entity Recognition tasks with a tractable computational cost. Our framework can handle an NER task that has long named entities and many labels which increase the computational cost. To reduce the computational cost, we propose two techniques: the ﬁrst is the use of feature forests, which enables us to pack feature-equivalent states, and the second is the introduction of a ﬁltering process which signiﬁcantly reduces the number of candidate states. ...
NER performs what is known as surface parsing, delimiting sequences of tokens that answer these important questions. NER can also be used as the first step in a chain of processors: a next level of processing could relate two or more NEs, or perhaps even give semantics to that relationship using a verb. In this way, further processing could discover the "what" and "how" of a sentence or body of text. While NER is relatively simple and it is fairly easy to build a system with reasonable performance, there are still a large number of ambiguous cases that make...
In this unit you will become familiar with the names of common animals in a variety
of habitats. Some of them share people’s lives, while others live in the wild or
on farms. You will also learn to identify small and large elements of the world,
such as fl owers and trees, as well as geographical and physical aspects of the

Function Name TO_YMINTERVAL TRANSLATE UNISTR TABLE 10-1.
Definition Converts a character string of CHAR, VARCHAR2, NCHAR, or NVARCHAR2 datatype to an INTERVAL YEAR TO MONTH type. TRANSLATEs characters in a string into different characters. Converts a string into Unicode in the database Unicode character set.
Transformation Functions (continued)
The use of two of these functions, TO_CHAR and TO_DATE, has already been demonstrated in Chapter 9. TO_CHAR transforms a date into a character string (in the format you request).

A younger investor, less concerned about these issues, may not be sat-
isﬁed with the lower expected return that inﬂation hedging implies.
It follows from a model with additional hedge portfolios that an OE
portfolio for performance evaluation should have the same exposures
as the managed portfolio to be evaluated, not just with respect to
the overall market, but also with respect to the other relevant risk
A related asset pricing model is the Arbitrage Pricing model of
Ross (APT, 1976), which allows for several risk factors to determine
assets’ expected returns.
2. Tell the students your name is Simon. You, as Simon, give instructions to the students. They are to do what you instruct only when you begin the instruction with "Simon says..." (e.g. "Simon says, 'Touch your nose.'"). If you begin a command differently (e.g. You only say, "Touch your nose.") then the students are not to obey your command. In other words, students should only respond to your command if you begin with "Simon says, ..."

In the mid-1990’s catastrophe bonds (CAT bonds), also named as Act of God or
Insurance-linked bond, were developed to ease the transfer of catastrophe based
insurance risk from insurers, reinsurers and corporations (sponsors) to capital
market investors. CAT bonds are bonds whose coupons and principal payments
depend on the performance of a pool or index of natural catastrophe risks, or
on the presence of speciﬁed trigger conditions.
Navigating the Internet requires using addresses and corresponding names that identify the
location of individual computers. The Domain Name System (DNS) is the distributed set of
databases residing in computers around the world that contain address numbers mapped to
corresponding domain names, making it possible to send and receive messages and to access
information from computers anywhere on the Internet.
The Journal of Korean Law reviews all the received materials. Manuscripts are sent to three most relevant
investigators for review of the contents. The editor selects peer referees by recommendation of the Editorial
Board members or from the specialist database owned by the Editorial Board. For review, names and their
affiliations of the authors are blinded.
More than half of flowering plants have a sophisticated mechanism for
self-pollen rejection, named self-incompatibility. In the Brassicaceae family,
the recognition specificity of a self-incompatibility system is achieved by
the interaction of the stigmatic S-receptor kinase and its ligand S-locus cys-teine-rich protein, which are encoded by two tightly linked polymorphic
This sentiment was well expressed by Charcot in one of his many teaching sessions on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
(ALS). It holds as true today as it did in 1865 and the search must continue but progress has been incredible in
recent years. There has been an exponential increase in the number of publications dealing with ALS and motor
neuron diseases in the last 50 years, as evidenced by listings in PubMed and related data bases.

Markets are changing fast. New markets are emerging, trading blocks are
extending and communications channels about products and selling them are
changing at a revolutionary pace. The signs of this change are everywhere in this
text. Many people will use Principles of Marketing alongside its associated CDROM,
Interactive Marketing. An increasing number of references are now Website
addresses that anyone can access from their PC. Yet amid this turmoil some
issues remain the same.
