This is the sixth book of examples from the Theory of Probability. This topic is not my favourite,
however, thanks to my former colleague, Ole Jørsboe, I somehow managed to get an idea of what it is
all about. The way I have treated the topic will often diverge from the more professional treatment.
On the other hand, it will probably also be closer to the way of thinking which is more common among
many readers, because I also had to start from scratch.
What does a Distributer do? While Distributers are
invisible to most consumers their role is to bridge the
geographical gap between producer and retailer.
Supermarkets and department stores couldn't exist
without a complicated distribution system, capable of
moving enormous amounts of product from point A – the
producer to point C – the consumer. Distributors add
significantly to the cost of the products we buy but they
deliver a valuable service in providing access to the
marketplace so producers can focus their energies on
manufacturing the product.

electronics are viewed as geniuses. Do you want to learn how to control the power of
It might also mean that you’re ready to take a leap of faith and start reading about something that sounds too good to be true. Ater all, I had a work-shop atendee tell me last summer, “he only reason I signed up for your workshop is because I didn’t believe...
A lathe is a machine tool which spins a block of material to perform various operations such as cutting, Turning, Facing, Threading, sanding, knurling, drilling, or deformation such as metal spinning with tools that are applied to the work piece to create an object which has symmetry about an axis of rotation
• The term Centre Lathe is derived from the fact that in its operation the lathe holds a piece of material between two rigid supports called centres, or by some other device such as a chuck or faceplate which revolves about the centre line of the lathe.
The complementary in shopping does not eliminate the possibility
to discriminate the shoppers and the captives when the two goods are complements.
Rather, it gives an additional ability to do such discrimination without lowering prices
too much as the shoppers have a stronger incentive to shop at one place. We were unable
to solve our model when these costs are present as this task requires nding the marginal
distributions as well as the distribution of the sum of the two prices.
Tasked in the previous section and ask the single question: Are the two sets drawn from the same distribution function, or from different distribution functions? Equivalently, in proper statistical language
Technology is often a consequence of science and engineering — although technology as a human activity precedes the two fields. For example, science might study the flow of electrons in electrical conductors, by using already-existing tools and knowledge. This new-found knowledge may then be used by engineers to create new tools and machines, such as semiconductors, computers, and other forms of advanced technology. In this sense, scientists and engineers may both be considered technologists; the three fields are often considered as one for the purposes of research and reference....
Test Access Unit (TAU) module is an optional
maintenance device that provides monitor and intrusive test
access to the DS1 channels in the Soneplex Broadband chassis
between the high speed network interface modules and the
low speed DS1 distribution modules.
In 2004, Ruby on Rails became public. The world was surprised by its productivity
and by the magic of Ruby that enabled Ruby on Rails. Many people
knew Ruby before Rails, but few realized the power of the language, especially
But Rails is not the first framework to realize the power of Ruby. dRuby came
long before Rails. It uses metaprogramming features for distributed programming.
Proxy objects “automagically” delegate method calls to remote objects.

This is a good time for a review of the academic literature on evaluating
portfolio performance, concentrating on professionally managed invest-
ment portfolios. While the literature goes back to before the 1960s,
recent years have witnessed an explosion of new methods for perfor-
mance evaluation and new evidence on the subject. We think that
several forces have contributed to this renaissance. The demand for
research on managed portfolio performance increased as mutual funds
and related investment vehicles became more important to investors
in the 1980s and 1990s.
Qualified long-term care services are those generally given by long-term
care providers. These services must be required by chronically ill individuals
and must be given according to a plan of care prescribed by a licensed
health care practitioner. You are considered chronically ill if you are
expected to be unable to do at least two activities of daily living without
substantial assistance from another person for at least 90 days.
“I did not know that it was so dangerous to drink a beer with you. You
write a book with those you drink a beer with,” said Professor Willem Van
Zwet, referring to the preface of the book Csorgo and I wrote (1981) where
it was told that the idea of that book was born in an inn in London over
a beer. In spite of this danger Willem was brave enough to invite me to
Leiden in 1984 for a semester and to drink quite a few beers with me there.
In fact I gave a seminar in Leiden, and the handout of that seminar...
At the same time, the majority of users are not ma-
licious, and would enable client-side enforcement to
avoid exploits such as cross-site scripting andWeb-based
worms. Even if only benign users with enhanced clients
might perform security enforcement, those users would
be protected, and all users would beneﬁt from fewer at-
tacks on the Web application.
Unfortunately, there are many obstacles to the adop-
tion of new, enhanced security mechanisms in popular
Web browsers. Even when such enhancements are prac-
tical and easy to implement, they may not be deployed

Distributional word similarity is most commonly perceived as a symmetric relation. Yet, one of its major applications is lexical expansion, which is generally asymmetric. This paper investigates the nature of directional (asymmetric) similarity measures, which aim to quantify distributional feature inclusion. We identify desired properties of such measures, specify a particular one based on averaged precision, and demonstrate the empirical beneﬁt of directional measures for expansion.
