George Lusztig Discrete Series of GLn Over a Finite Field. (AM-81), Volume 81

7227 руб.
In this book Professor Lusztig solves an interesting problem by entirely new methods: specifically, the use of cohomology of buildings and related complexes.The book gives an explicit construction of one distinguished member, D(V), of the discrete series of GLn (Fq), where V is the n-dimensional F-vector space on which GLn(Fq) acts. This is a p-adic representation; more precisely D(V) is a free module of rank (q--1) (q2-1)...(qn-1-1) over the ring of Witt vectors WF of F. In Chapter 1 the author studies the homology of partially ordered sets, and proves some vanishing theorems for the homology of some partially ordered sets associated to geometric structures. Chapter 2 is a study of the representation △ of the affine group over a finite field. In Chapter 3 D(V) is defined, and its restriction to parabolic subgroups is determined. In Chapter 4 the author computes the character of D(V), and shows how to obtain other members of the discrete series by applying Galois automorphisms to D(V). Applications are in Chapter 5. As one of the main applications of his study the author gives a precise analysis of a Brauer lifting of the standard representation of GLn(Fq).

The Oxford Handbook of Animal Studies

15935 руб.
Intellectual struggles with the "animal question"― how humans can rethink and reconfigure their relationships with other animals― first began to take hold in the 1970s. Over the next forty years, scholars from a wide range of fields would make sweeping reevaluations of the relationship between humans and other animals. The Oxford Handbook of Animal Studies brings these diverse evaluations together for the first time, paying special attention to the commodification of animals, the degradation of the natural world and a staggering loss of animal habitat and species extinction, and the increasing need for humans to coexist with other animals in urban, rural and natural contexts. Linda Kalof maps these themes into the five major categories that structure this volume: Animals in the Landscape of Law, Politics and Public Policy; Animal Intentionality, Agency and Reflexive Thinking; Animals as Objects in Science, Food, Spectacle and Sport; Animals in Cultural Representations; and Animals in Ecosystems. Written by international scholars with backgrounds in philosophy, law, history, English, art, sociology, geography, archaeology, environmental studies, cultural studies, and animal advocacy, the thirty chapters in this handbook investigate key issues and concepts central to understanding our current relationship with other animals and the potential for coexistence in an ecological community of living beings.

Peter Ayres G. Shaping Ecology. The Life of Arthur Tansley

8786.99 руб.
Sir Arthur Tansley was the leading figure in ecology for the first half of the 20th century, founding the field, and forming its first professional societies. He was the first President of the British Ecological Society and the first chair of the Field Studies Council. His work as a botanist is considered seminal and he is recognized as one of the giants of ecology throughout the world. Ecology underpins the principles and practices of modern conservation and the maintenance of biodiversity. It explains the causes of, and offers solutions to, problems of climate change. Yet ecology is a young science, barely 100 years old. Its origins lie in phytogeography, the naming and mapping of plants. Shaping Ecology is a book about a multi-faceted man whose friends included Bertrand Russell, Marie Stopes, Julian Huxley, GM Trevelyan, and Solly Zuckerman. Historical context is provided by Tansley's family for his parents moved in the Fabian-socialist world of John Ruskin and Octavia Hill, both instrumental in the foundation of the National Trust. While Britain was relatively slow to protect its green spaces and wildlife, it did establish in 1913 the first professional Ecological Society in the world. Tansley was its President. Organising the British Vegetation Committee and initiating a series of International Phytogeographic Excursions, he changed phytogeography into ecology.

A volume in Research Methods in Educational TechnologySeries Editor Walter F. Heinecke, University of VirginiaDespite technology's presence in virtually every public school, its documented familiarity and use byyouth outside of school, and the wealth of resources it provides for teaching social studies, there has beenrelatively little empirical research on its effectiveness for the teaching and learning of social studies. In aneffort to begin to fill this gap in research literature, this book focuses on research on technology in socialstudies education. The objectives of this volume are threefold: to describe research frameworks, provideexamples of empirical research, and chart a course for future research endeavors. Accordingly, the volumeis divided into three overarching sections: research constructs and contexts, research reports, and researchreviews.The need for research is particularly acute within the field of social studies and technology. As the primarypurpose of social studies is to prepare the young people of today to be the citizens of tomorrow, it isnecessary to examine how technology tools impact, improve, and otherwise affect teaching and learning insocial studies. Given these circumstances, we have prepared this collection of research conceptualizations, reports, and reviews to achieve three goals.1. Put forward reports on how research is being conducted in the field2. Present findings from well-designed research studies that provide evidence of how specifi...

Two accounts of American Gunners at WarNot only was the United States committed to a policy of neutrality as the Great War broke out in Europe in 1914 it was also, in any event, completely unprepared to be a participant in a global conflict. By 1917 its army consisted of only 300,000 men, it had experienced operational difficulties in its recent expedition into Mexico and had not fully grasped that its rate of growth as a nation would inevitably include it in all events on the world stage whether it wished to be included or not. The allies looked to the prodigious manufacturing capacity of the United States and its resources in manpower to break the stalemate of the war on the Western Front and so in April of 1917 it reluctantly 'threw its hat into the ring.' Those who are interested in Americans at war, the United States effort in World War 1, the history of the US Artillery arm and the first hand experiences of the US soldiers who fought in Europe in the early years of the twentieth century will find much to interest them in the pages of this book. However, while all that may be sufficient for many The 305th Field Artillery in the Great War offers more.

Human cancer is at an important frontier of medical research, and one where Computational Intelligence methods have made substantial inroads in recent years. Computational Intelligence research in cancer now reaches all biological scales from human population down to the phenotype and genotype. It is also fair to say that it reaches the complete range of cancer pathologies. This book does not aim to achieve such completeness of coverage. Instead, the studies included in it should provide readers with a broad palette and a hopefully useful taster of what Computational Intelligence methods can achieve in the field. This volume contains an overview of the field and a collection of eight leading-edge studies from research teams composed of experts in the field on various aspects of the subject.

4609.46 руб.
The Carboniferous Shannon Basin of Western Ireland has become one of the most visited field areas in the world. It provides an ideal opportunity for examining a wide range of ancient sedimentary environments, including carbonate shelf, reefs and mud mounds, black shales and phosphates, and a spectrum of deep sea, shallow marine, fluvio-deltaic and alluvial siliciclastic sediments. The area boasts extensive outcrops and some of the most renowned sections through turbidites, large-scale soft sediment deformation features and sediments that display a response to tectonic and sea-level controls. This field guide provides the first synthesis of the principal localities in this area of Western Ireland, and presents an easily accessible handbook that will guide the reader to, and within, a wide range of sedimentary facies, allowing an understanding of the evolving nature of the fill of this Carboniferous basin and the context of its sedimentary and tectonic evolution. The guide summarizes recent and new work in the area by a range of authors and outlines issues of current debate concerning the Shannon Basin and its palaeoenvironmental interpretation. The field guide will find extensive use in teaching and research by academic researchers, professional and amateur geologists, as well as by applied geologists, geophysicists and reservoir engineers who use these outcrops as analogues for subsurface reservoirs in many areas of the world.

Master's Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject Statistics, grade: Passed, RMIT (RMIT), course: Master of Engineering (systems engineering), 120 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This thesis investigates the effect of ideology on the survival times of 557 terrorist organisations. While there is broad acceptance of the view that the majority of terrorist organisations are short-lived, quantitative studies of the life spans of terrorist organisations are rare. Terrorist organisations go to great lengths to ensure their survival, with many terrorist organisations viewing their continued existence as a victory in itself. Within the broader field of organisational analysis, an organisation's age is viewed as a key variable in explaining the development of its structures, functions, and, most importantly, its likelihood of continued survival. The ideology through which a terrorist organisation views the world is thought by many scholars of terrorism to play an important role in its justification for violence, its strategic intentions, the targets it selects, and its survival prospects. While many typologies of terrorist ideologies have been proposed, one of the most common approaches uses four broad categories of ideological orientation: Separatist/nationalist, left-wing, religious, and right-wing. Separatist/nationalist organisations are widely believed to have much greater longevity than organisations that lack a distinct, territorially bounded, ...

Forged from Native American pathways, the Camino Real de los Tejas and its variants became an important transportation corridor during the Spanish Colonial period of Texas. Following the explorations of Alonso de León, between 1686 and 1690, Spanish missionaries and soldiers began the earliest European settlements in Texas. Mexican Territorial and early Anglo-American period immigrants to Texas also contributed much information about its people, land, and trails. Through their diaries, correspondence and maps, Spanish explorers, missionaries, and settlers provided an historical and ethnographic context about the early history of Texas. Today, historians and archaeologists utilize key historical texts in their studies about Texas and its early roads. The significance of the Camino Real de los Tejas and its variants, to the history of Texas and our national story, is clearly demonstrated in their scholarly works used in this publication. In 2004, the United States Congress designated the Camino Real de los Tejas National Historic Trail. Later, in 2015, UNESCO designated San Antonio Missions National Historical Park as a World Heritage Site. Such honors pay tribute to the significance of early Hispanic missionaries and settlers in Texas and Coahuila who, between 1690 and 1821, developed towns, ranches, fortifications, missions, and a mighty road to support such enterprises. In that way, they too touched the future of Texas and our national story. The heritage of the Camino Real ...

Though still a relatively young field, memory studies has undergone significant transformations since it first coalesced as an area of inquiry. Increasingly, scholars understand memory to be a fluid, dynamic, unbound phenomenon-a process rather than a reified object. Embodying just such an elastic approach, this state-of-the-field collection systematically explores the transcultural, transgenerational, transmedial, and transdisciplinary dimensions of memory-four key dynamics that have sometimes been studied in isolation but never in such an integrated manner. Memory Unbound�places leading researchers in conversation with emerging voices in the field to recast our understanding of memory's distinctive variability.

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2011 in the subject Art - Architecture / History of Construction, grade: Bestanden, Technical University of Darmstadt, language: English, abstract: This research has the aim to study Mozambican housing considering its evolution and present day characteristics, making critical analyses of the current situation, in order to indicate possible guidelines for actions in the future. The study objective is the so called Open House, its transformations and applicability in today's urban context of the informal settlements, with the hypotheses that it can be preserved as a sustainable housing concept. This project produces original knowledge, since investigations of the housing situation so far have not provided detailed architectural analysis of the Open House in informal settlements in Mozambique. The method is based on case studies with an abductive approach. The steps are in short; 1. an inventory based on document analyses, 2. field studies with observations and interviews of key actors, 3. SWOTanalyses, 4. recommendations and proposals for preserving and developing the sustainable characteristics of the Open House concept.

Master's Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, grade: 1.3, University of Münster (English Department), language: English, abstract: Digital games are products of contemporary popular culture and indicators of social and cultural processes in modern computerized information societies. In recent years digital games asserted their status not only as a popular form of entertainment but also as virtual spaces for social interaction, escapism from reality, electronic sports and digital art. The first scientific studies of digital games date back to the late 1970s but recent debates about violence and addiction revived the interest in game research. The field of academic game studies describes the social, cultural, political, ideological, philosophical and psychological dimensions of digital games and their effects and influence on players. This paper presents an outline of game studies as academic school of thought and their role in scientific, public and political debates. The ambition of this paper is to demonstrate that game studies are a resourceful field of work and can be beneficial to the humanities. More importantly this work states that it is necessary to form an institutionalized frame of academic game research in order to retain the ability to describe and analyze a growing cultural and social phenomenon of unprecedented proportions. Without game studies, whole sectors of youth culture and virtual social networks ...

Molecular biology is a rapidly developing field of science. Advancements in molecular biology have helped various other fields including medicine and dentistry to go molecular. Since the introduction of molecular biology in orthodontics and the identification of genes associated with growth and development the focus has shifted towards a personalized treatment approach. The genes which have been linked to malocclusions and developmental disorders can serve as targets for an individual based treatment. Researchers have also been able to discover the molecules involved in orthodontic tooth movement, thus paving a pathway for modulation of the rate of tooth movement. The field of molecular orthodontics is in its nascent stage. Most of the studies involving gene therapies have been conducted in animal models. Large scale clinical trials are required to develop precise treatment modalities. There is a constant need for further research in this field so that the benefits of this approach can be delivered to the patients in an effective way.
