At the time of Isaac Newton’s invention of the calculus in the 17th century, the mechanical clock was the most
sophisticated machine known. The simplicity of the clock allowed its movements to be completely described with
mathematics. Newton not only described the clock’s movements with mathematics, but also the movements of the
planets and other astronomical bodies. Because of the success of the Newtonian method, a mathematics-based
model of reality resulted.
Research on the text generation task has led to creation of a large systemic grammar of English, Nigel, which is embedded in a computer program. The grammar and the systemic framework have been extended by addition of a semantic stratum. The grammar generates sentences and other units under several kinds of experimental control. This paper describes augmentations of various precedents in the systemic framework. The emphasis is on developments which control the text to fulfill a purpose, and on characteristics which make Nigel relatively easy to embed in a larger experimental program. ...

Overview bag of features models, bags of features for image classification, from clustering to vector quantization, image classification,... As the main contents of the lecture "Bag-of-features models". Each of your content and references for additional lectures will serve the needs of learning and research.
The credit derivatives market is booming and, for the first time, expanding into the banking sector which previously has had very little exposure to quantitative modeling. This phenomenon has forced a large number of professionals to confront this issue for the first time. Credit Derivatives Pricing Models provides an extremely comprehensive overview of the most current areas in credit risk modeling as applied to the pricing of credit derivatives.
In the past decade, Cognitive Linguistics has developed into one of the most dynamic
and attractive frameworks within theoretical and descriptive linguistics.
With about fifty chapters written by experts in the field, the Oxford Handbook of
Cognitive Linguistics intends to provide a comprehensive overview of the entire
domain of Cognitive Linguistics, from basic concepts to practical applications.

This module provides students with an introduction to the Microsoft Solutions
Framework (MSF) Process Model, including an overview of process models
(waterfall and spiral); a discussion of the MSF milestone-driven and phase-
based process model; the underlying principles of the MSF model, including
living documents, versioned releases, and project tradeoffs, and a synopsis of
how the Process Model can be applied to other types of projects, such as
enterprise architecture (EA), application development (AD), and infrastructure
deployment (ID). ...
We now turn to presenting results. After examining the demographic characteristics of Cambodian
elders, we explore a number of social, economic and health issues in that order. When presenting the
results in tabular form, we limit examination of differentials to gender, location (Phnom Penh versus the
remainder of the provinces) and age (60-69 versus 70+). Each of these dimensions are typically of
interest for both academics and policy-makers.
First we look up on the economic dependency as a component of economic deprivation. The
dependency status of a person identified as an indicator of freedom and autonomy of an
individual that reflects on the ability to transform his capability to the wellbeing (Sen 1992).
The studies of the wellbeing of the elderly gives that there is high degree of dependency in the
old age for both economic and Physical (Omran 1982, World Bank 1994). In the developed
world, it is protected by the intuitional and social care that one way curtails the incidence of
the dependency (Heslop, A. and...
An introduction to automatic speaker recognition is presented in this chapter. The identifying characteristics of a person’s voice that make it possible to automatically identify a speaker are discussed. Subtasks such as speaker identiﬁcation, veriﬁcation, and detection are described. An overview of the techniques used to build speaker models as well as issues related to system performance are presented. Finally, a few selected applications of speaker recognition are introduced to demonstrate the wide range of applications of speaker recognition technologies.
The model yields the following results. First, the model is consistent with volatility clustering
or GARCH e¤ects. The market price of risk, which is the instantaneous component of stock return
volatility, has three components: endowment risk, sentiment risk and solvency risk. These three
components are persistent, hence the model reproduces volatility clustering or GARCH e¤ects.
Endowment risk is persistent because the "two-trees" feature of the model imply that endowment
risk is proportional to the shares of aggregate endowment, which uctuate randomly between zero
Given that social media applications and services have only recently become available, these
high usage rates indicate a surprisingly rapid take up among large parts of the European
population. These findings are confirmed by a recent IPTS assessment of social computing
(Ala-Mutka et al. 2009b) and by figures from other independent sources. Nielsen Online
(2009) estimates that, globally, 67% of Internet users accessed social networking sites or
blogs in 2008.
The mammalian natriuretic peptide system, consisting of at least three
ligands and three receptors, plays critical roles in health and disease. Exam-ination of genetically engineered animal models has suggested the signifi-cance of the natriuretic peptide system in cardiovascular, renal and skeletal
Changes in the official rate also affect the market value of
securities, such as bonds and equities. The price of bonds is
inversely related to the long-term interest rate, so a rise in
long-term interest rates lowers bond prices, and vice versa
for a fall in long rates. If other things are equal (especially
inflation expectations), higher interest rates also lower other
securities prices, such as equities. This is because expected
future returns are discounted by a larger factor, so the
present value of any given future income stream falls.

As you will see, we continue to expand our work on healthy aging, prevention, and
eliminating health disparities by working closely with state and local government
and community leaders and partners to create healthy environments that offer
ample access to healthy foods and physical activity; age-friendly communities,
businesses and institutions; and schools that adopt a culture of healthy habits for
students, teachers, and parents alike.
