  • 'It was as if I had privately discovered life on another planet, or a parallel universe where life was at once recognizably similar but entirely different. I can't tell you how exciting it was. Insofar as I had accumulated my expectations of Australia at all in the intervening years, I had thought of it as a kind of alternative southern California, a place of constant sunshine and the cheerful vapidity of a beach lifestyle, but with a slightly British bent - a sort of Baywatch with cricket...' Of course, what greeted Bill Bryson was something rather different. Australia is a country...

  • The talk proceeds as follows: (1) we summarize OT and its applications to UG. The we present (2) learning and (3) parsing algorithms for OT. Finally, (4) we show how crucial elements of OT emerge from connectionism, and discuss the one central feature of OT which so far eludes connectionist explanation. (1) In OT, UG provides a set of highly general universal constraints which apply in parallel to assess the wellformedness of possible structural descriptions of linguistic inputs.

  • AFTER some fourteen years of teaching in American colleges and universities the author finds that the average high school graduate has not developed in himself a mathematical type of reasoning. lie therefore hopes that this treatment may in some measure accomplish this purpose. The first few chapters are devoted to a thorough review of high school algebra, for the author is convinced that most college freshmen need considerable drill on the fundamental processes of algebra before attempting a very extensive study of mathematics....

  • Muterials science emerged in USA, some time in thc carly 1950s. That phrase denoted a new scientific concept, born out of metallurgy, and this book is devoted to the emergence, development and consequences of that concept, in the US and elsewhere. Just who first coined the phrase is not known, but it is clear that by 1956 a number of senior research scientists had acquired the habit of using it.

  • This project has allowed me the luxury of following my curiosity to its natural end, and it is a pleasure to thank those who have made it possible. Graduate fellowships from the Fulbright-Hays program, the American Association of University Women, and Northwestern University helped to underwrite the early stages of my research and writing. The American Council of Learned Societies, the Horace H. Rackham fund of the University of Michigan, and Duke University provided later sustenance, computer support and time away from teaching duties....

  • Instead of assembling a new MBA program from existing courses, we chose to first develop a concep- tual foundation that tries to integrate these components based on a common vision and a common set of methods and models. Parallel to the ‘Enterprise Engineer’ approach by Martin (1995), Business Engi- neering was been proposed initially in the mid 1990s as a holistic methodology for the conceptualiza- tion, design, and implementation of IT-enabled business transformation.

  • The one-sided dependency on investment activity repeatedly subjects the ME industry to pronounced cyclic fluctuations in demand. The client companies’ investment decisions are a response to actual or expected changes in capacity utilisation, earnings, financing costs or general market conditions. These aspects develop in parallel for large areas of the economy, leading to cumulative processes.

  • Finally, international (foreign currency) credit can also put upward pressure on the real exchange rate, as borrowers exchange foreign for domestic currency for the purchase of domestic goods or assets. With a fixed exchange rate (or within a currency area), real exchange rate appreciation can take the form of relatively rapid inflation. For a country with an independent currency, real exchange rate appreciation can result from either nominal appreciation or relatively rapid inflation.

  • Metadata associated with each document indicate its status in the process, and it changes as each task is completed: first draft, edited, final draft, translated, published. In this example the sequence of tasks is linear, even if the document edited must be revised by the Author before going to the next step. Workflow processes can be more complex; for example, they can include parallel flows, multiple feedback or control loops.

  • T-S FUZZY MODEL AS UNIVERSAL APPROXIMATOR In this chapter, we present two results concerning the fuzzy modeling and control of nonlinear systems w1x. First, we prove that any smooth nonlinear control systems can be approximated by Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy models with linear rule consequence. Then, we prove that any smooth nonlinear state feedback controller can be approximated by the parallel distributed compensation ŽPDC. controller. Among various fuzzy modeling themes, the Takagi-Sugeno ŽT-S. model w2x has been one of the most popular modeling frameworks....

  • CHAPTER 9 COUPLING, CLUTCHING, AND BRAKING DEVICES COUPLING OF PARALLEL SHAFTS Fig. 1 One method of coupling shafts makes use of gears that can replace chains, pulleys, and friction drives. Its major limitation is the need for adequate center distance. However, an idler can be used for close centers, as shown. This can be a plain pinion or an internal gear. Transmission is at a constant velocity and there is axial freedom. Fig. 2 This coupling consists of two universal joints and a short shaft.

  • A recent report by Drexel University [Eisenstein et al., 2003b] addresses the complex issue of life safety systems tied into the BCS—a scenario that does not fit well with the scenarios presented above. Presently all life safety systems (fire) are in parallel to the HVAC and other elements of the BCS, with separate wiring and only connections at the highest controller level to allow the BCS to get status information.
