dvances in technology are increasingly impacting the way in which curriculum is delivered and assessed. The emergence of the Internet has offered learners a new instructional delivery system that connects them with educational resources.
PREFATORY NOTE.--Mr. Clemens began to write his autobiography many years ago, and he continues to
add to it day by day. It was his original intention to permit no publication of his memoirs until after his death;
but, after leaving "Pier No. 70," he concluded that a considerable portion might now suitably be given to the
public. It is that portion, garnered from the quarter-million of words already written, which will appear in this
REVIEW during the coming year. No part of the autobiography will be published in book form during the
lifetime of the author.--EDITOR N. A. R....
This is to be a book about myself but, even before I begin it, I am painfully aware of the egotistical
atmosphere which the unavoidable use of the personal pronouns creates. I have hitherto declared that I would
not write an autobiography, but a consideration of circumstances convinces me that an autobiography is the
only form any personal relation can now take. For the press has so widely and so frequently exploited certain
events of my life--impossible to omit--that disguise is far out of the question. Fiction could not hide me, nor
an assumed name, nor even no name at all.
Many chaotic circuit models have been developed and studied up to date.
Autonomous and nonautonomous Chua’s circuits hold a special
importance in the studies of chaotic system modeling and chaos-based
science and engineering applications. Since a considerable number of
hardware and software-based design and implementation approaches can
be applied to Chua’s circuits, these circuits also constitute excellent
educative models that have pedagogical value in the study of nonlinear
dynamics and chaos.
