Based on a streamlined presentation of the author’s successful work, An Introduction to Frames and Riesz Bases, this book develops frame theory as part of a dialogue between mathematicians and engineers. Newly added sections on applications will help mathematically oriented readers to see where frames are used in practice and engineers to discover the mathematical background for applications in their field. The book presents basic results in an accessible way and includes extensive exercises.
In June 1998, U.S. Vice President Al Gore and the National Partnership for Reinventing Government presented a team of Army logisticians and RAND analysts the Hammer Award in recognition of a great accomplishment: making Army logistics work better and cost less. This report documents that achievement. Started in 1995, the
This publication is based on a research procedure that has remained fundamentally un-
changed from the beginning. A large sample of small-business owners, all members of the Na-
tional Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), is sent a mail questionnaire.
naire presents 75 potential business problems, public policy related and not. Respondents are
asked to rate the severity of each potential problem on a scale of 1 to 7 anchored by “Critical
Problem” on one end and “Not a Problem” on the other.
Build this up. You have a stunning three stage prediction, each stage
seemingly more impossible than the last. Take time to build up, chat a bit
to misdirect the audience so they forget the exact details of the earlier
part of the prediction, and, if you act amazed at each step they will react
the same. This trick is known in some magical circles as The Trick that
Fooled Einstein. If you present it well, it will fool anyone!

A long-term goal of our work is to develop the basic control theory for me-
chanical systems, and Lagrangian systems in particular. There are several reasons
why mechanical systems are good candidates for new results in nonlinear control.
On the practical end, mechanical systems are often quite well identiﬁed, and ac-
curate models exist for speciﬁc systems, such as robots, airplanes, and spacecraft.
This book-and-video package teaches you the essential elements of Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) from the ground upno previous knowledge of SSIS is required.

Schaum's Easy Outline of Bookkeeping and Accounting is a pared-down, simplified, and tightly focused review of the topic. With an emphasis on clarity and brevity, it features a streamlined and updated format and the absolute essence of the subject, presented in a concise and readily understandable form. Graphic elements such as sidebars, reader-alert icons, and boxed highlights stress selected points from the text, illuminate keys to learning, and give you quick pointers to the essentials.
This book presents a complete account of the foundations of the theory of
p-adic Lie groups. It moves on to some of the important more advanced
aspects. Although most of the material is not new, it is only in recent years
that p-adic Lie groups have found important applications in number theory
and representation theory. These applications constitute, in fact, an increasingly
active area of research. The book is designed to give to the advanced,
but not necessarily graduate, student a streamlined access to the basics of
the theory. It is almost self contained.
Modern technology has made possible to gather and present this information economically and efficiently

The Rule amendments also streamline and clarify the direct notice requirements to ensure
that key information is presented to parents in a succinct “just-in-time” notice; expand the non-
exhaustive list of acceptable methods for obtaining prior verifiable parental consent; create two
new exceptions to the Rule’s notice and consent requirements; strengthen data security
protections by requiring operators to take reasonable steps to release children’s personal
information only to service providers and third parties who are capable of maintaining the
confidentiality, security, an...
The emergence of the WWW as the main source of distributing content opened the floodgates of information. The sheer volume and diversity of this content necessitate an approach that will reinvent the way it is analysed. The quantitative route to processing information which relies on content management tools provides structural analysis. The challenge we address is to evolve from the process of streamlining data to a level of understanding that assigns value to content.
