  2. Gerard Larguier, Artist, France

    Since 1994, the French National Agency for Radioactive Waste Management (Andra) has been pursuing a study of collective memory, based on its experience with the Manche disposal facility. In 2010 - in response to the project Centre industriel de stockage geologique (Cigeo), its concomitant need to preserve collective memory of the site for at least 500 years, and public demand - Andra launched an initiative to ensure that future generations do not forget about the existence of radioactive waste disposal facilities. Pursuing its investigations in this area, Andra has led theoretical enquiries that consider art as a possible vehicle of collective memory. Memory is often found between parentheses that do not overload the spirit but enclose it in rules that facilitate forgetting... which is a vanity of the present moment. The past must always have the role of providing future ferment. And then the transfer occurs that can open up to history. Born in 1938, Gerard Larguier began working in 1956 with the renowned poster artist Paul Colin of Nancy before going on to study at the Beaux-Arts in Paris and Academie Julian. He has worked at his studio in the Bateau Lavoir in Paris since 1979 as well as Bonnet's former presbytery in the Meuse since 1973. Using both materials and relief, he has exhibited his artwork at leading institutions around the world. Since 1998, he has taken up the theme of memory in his works 'Chronique du XXeme siecle', 'Autodafes et palimpsestes' and his series 'A saute-souvenances'. He has also tackled the evolution of artwork over the centuries in a series of fifty works entitled 'Les chefs-d'oeuvre revisites'. In 2008, Gerard Larguier completed a fresco commissioned by Andra on the local heritage and environment of the Bure Laboratory. In 2010, the municipality of Soulaines d'Huys commissioned a fresco of the history of the town from the sixteenth century to the present using the archives of

  10. Teaching and Learning in the Summa theologiae of Gerard of Bologna (d. 1317)

    Nolan, Simon


    Gerard of Bologna (d. 1317) was the first Carmelite master at the University of Paris in the Middle Ages. In Quaestio 6, article 1 of his incomplete Summa theologiae, Gerard discusses the issue of teaching and learning. During the course of his discussion he summarises his understanding of the process of cognition in human beings and he considers God, angels and human beings as teachers. Gerard insists on the necessity of the teacher-student relationship in the handing on of human knowledge.

  11. "Symposium" by Richard Dawkins, Gerard 't Hooft, Alain Connes

    Maximilien Brice


    Richard Dawkins will speak on biology, Gerard ‘t Hooft will focus on physics, and Alain Connes will discuss mathematics. CERN scientists probe ever-deeper levels of matter and their interactions, but can we say that the patterns they see are truly fundamental? Does the universe obey the same laws throughout? Since mathematical constructions can be true in the absence of any relation to the physical world, is mathematics more fundamental than physics? Extraterrestrial life would probably look much different from that on Earth, but natural selection still be fundamental to their evolution?

  12. The Incomputable Alan Turing

    Cooper, S. Barry


    The last century saw dramatic challenges to the Laplacian predictability which had underpinned scientific research for around 300 years. Basic to this was Alan Turing's 1936 discovery (along with Alonzo Church) of the existence of unsolvable problems. This paper focuses on incomputability as a powerful theme in Turing's work and personal life, and examines its role in his evolving concept of machine intelligence. It also traces some of the ways in which important new developments are anticipa...

  13. Incomputability after Alan Turing

    Cooper, S. Barry


    Incomputability as a mathematical notion arose from work of Alan Turing and Alonzo Church in the 1930s. Like Turing himself, it attracted less attention than it deserved beyond the confines of mathematics. Today our experiences in computer science, physics, biology, artificial intelligence, economics and the humanities point to the importance of the notion for understanding the world around us. This article takes a Turing centenary look at how the interface between the computable world and th...

  14. Alan Turing the enigma

    Hodges, Andrew


    It is only a slight exaggeration to say that the British mathematician Alan Turing (1912-1954) saved the Allies from the Nazis, invented the computer and artificial intelligence, and anticipated gay liberation by decades--all before his suicide at age forty-one. This classic biography of the founder of computer science, reissued on the centenary of his birth with a substantial new preface by the author, is the definitive account of an extraordinary mind and life. A gripping story of mathematics, computers, cryptography, and homosexual persecution, Andrew Hodges's acclaimed book captures bot

  15. An updated summary of MATHEW/ADPIC model evaluation studies

    This paper summarizes the major model evaluation studies conducted for the MATHEW/ADPIC atmospheric transport and diffusion models used by the US Department of Energy's Atmospheric Release Advisory Capability. These studies have taken place over the last 15 years and involve field tracer releases influenced by a variety of meteorological and topographical conditions. Neutrally buoyant tracers released both as surface and elevated point sources, as well as material dispersed by explosive, thermally bouyant release mechanisms have been studied. Results from these studies show that the MATHEW/ADPIC models estimate the tracer air concentrations to within a factor of two of the measured values 20% to 50% of the time, and within a factor of five of the measurements 35% to 85% of the time depending on the complexity of the meteorology and terrain, and the release height of the tracer. Comparisons of model estimates to peak downwind deposition and air concentration measurements from explosive releases are shown to be generally within a factor of two to three. 24 refs., 14 figs., 3 tabs

  20. A Very Human Survey: The Cross-Cultural Inquiries of R. H. Mathews

    Martin Thomas


    Full Text Available In addressing the life and legacy of R. H. Mathews (1841-1918, this article queries the emphasis on 'otherness' that is common in much post-colonial commentary. The focus here is on the sharing of knowledge and other experiences of familiarity across cultures. Mathews was an Australian-born surveyor who turned to anthropology in the 1890s, publishing prolifically in Australia and overseas. Well known in Aboriginal communities through much of eastern Australia, he took advantage of contacts he had developed during his career as a surveyor. Such experience gave him a personal understanding of the land which greatly influenced his anthropological writing. In addition to direct interview, he also acquired information through correspondence with graziers and officials with Aboriginal employees or other connections with indigenous people. The article draws from some of these letters, many of which survive in the extensive R. H. Mathews Papers at the National Library of Australia. To date, the main source of information on Mathews has been a three-part article by A. P. Elkin published in the 1970s. Much information has since become available, including the testimony of Aboriginal informants who were recorded by Janet Mathews, a grand daughter-in-law of R. H. who worked for the Australian Institute of Aboriginal Studies as it was originally known (now AIATSIS. Mathews close connections in the Aboriginal world did nothing to protect him from the internecine feuding that characterised Australian anthropology in the Federation era. The article argues that Mathews' standing was damaged by a conspiracy involving the Melbourne-based Professor W. Baldwin Spencer who persuaded J. G. Frazer and other scholars in Britain never to acknowledge him or cite his work.

  15. Two-parameter double-oscillator model of Mathews-Lakshmanan type: Series solutions and supersymmetric partners

    Schulze-Halberg, Axel, E-mail:, E-mail: [Department of Mathematics and Actuarial Science and Department of Physics, Indiana University Northwest, 3400 Broadway, Gary, Indiana 46408 (United States); Wang, Jie, E-mail: [Department of Computer Information Systems, Indiana University Northwest, 3400 Broadway, Gary, Indiana 46408 (United States)


    We obtain series solutions, the discrete spectrum, and supersymmetric partners for a quantum double-oscillator system. Its potential features a superposition of the one-parameter Mathews-Lakshmanan interaction and a one-parameter harmonic or inverse harmonic oscillator contribution. Furthermore, our results are transferred to a generalized Pöschl-Teller model that is isospectral to the double-oscillator system.

  17. A sea breeze tracer study with the MATHEW/ADPIC transport and diffusion model

    The three-dimensional MATHEW/ADPIC (M/A) model was developed for the assessment of the consequences of a release of radioactive materials into the atmosphere. The M/A model has been applied to several continuous tracer releases under sea breeze conditions at Montalto on the Tyrrhenian coast approximately 100 km northwest of Rome, at the construction site of a nuclear power plant. The MATHEW model generates a mass conservative three-dimensional gridded wind field including terrain from available interpolated meteorological data. ADPIC is a three-dimensional numerical particle-in-cell transport and diffusion model capable of simulating the time- and space-varying dispersal of atmospheric pollutants under complex conditions. It is a particle-in-cell model in which Lagrangian 'mass' particles are transported inside a fixed Eulerian grid. The M/A evaluation of the sea breeze data is shown in terms of the fraction of computed samples agreeing with measured values within a factor N, versus an angle deltatheta which is a precision parameter inversely proportional to the model's accuracy. Indications are that a small average angular shift of deltatheta=10 deg. in the direction of the computed tracer plume will provide very good agreement with observed concentrations. It is found that for these experiments the vertical and horizontal model diffusion parameters need to be decoupled because of different turbulence characteristics in the vertical and horizontal planes. The sensitivity of the M/A model results to meteorological parameters and diffusion coefficients is examined, with the most important variable being wind direction. (author)

  20. Obituary: Alan D. Fiala (1942-2010)

    Kaplan, George


    Dr. Alan Dale Fiala, astronomer and expert on solar eclipses, died on May 26, 2010 in Arlington, Virginia, of respiratory failure after a brief illness. He was 67. Fiala had been a staff astronomer at the U.S. Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C., for his entire professional career, where he rose from a position as a summer intern to become the Chief of the Nautical Almanac Office, responsible for annual publications for astronomy and navigation that are used the world over. He retired from the observatory in 2000. Although a childhood case of polio affected his mobility for the rest of his life, he seldom let his physical constraints limit his activities, which were many and varied. Alan Fiala was born in Beatrice, Nebraska on November 9, 1942, the middle son of Emil A. ("John") and Lora Marie Fiala. Fiala's father was a postal clerk and Civil Service examiner. Fiala expressed interest in astronomy at a very young age. He contracted polio when he was 9. He graduated from Beatrice High School in 1960 with a straight-A average and went on to study at Carleton College. He received his B.A. summa cum laude after three years, in 1963, with a major in astronomy and minors in physics and mathematics. He was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, Sigma Xi, and Pi Mu Epsilon (mathematics). In 1962, Alan Fiala obtained a job as a summer intern at the Naval Observatory in Washington, working in the Nautical Almanac Office (NAO). He entered the graduate program at Yale University and continued to work summers at the observatory. He received his Ph.D. in 1968, under Gerald Clemence. His dissertation was titled "Determination of the Mass of Jupiter from a Study of the Motion of 57 Mnemosyne." After receiving his doctorate, Fiala became a permanent member of the Naval Observatory staff. Computers were just being introduced there and he participated in the automation of many procedures used to prepare the annual publications of the Nautical Almanac Office. One of his first assignments was

  2. Remembering James Alan Bassham (1922-2012).

    Govindjee; Bassham, Helen; Bassham, Susan


    James Alan Bassham, known to many as Al, was born on November 26, 1922, in Sacramento, California (CA), USA. He died on November 19, 2012, in El Cerrito, CA. To celebrate his life at his 3rd death anniversary, we present here a brief biography, comments on his discoveries, but most importantly, remembrances from family and friends; we remember this wonderful and modest person who had played a major pivotal role in the discoveries that led to what he would like to call the P(hotosynthetic) C(arbon) R(eduction) cycle, known to many as the Calvin Cycle, the Calvin-Benson Cycle, or the Calvin-Benson-Bassham Cycle. Based on a personal request by Bassham himself to one of us (Govindjee), we refrain from including his name in the cycle-in recognition of his many students and associates he would have liked to honor.

    Full Text Available ABSTRACT This paper consists on a bibliometric analysis of the international influences of the book "Studies on termites from the Mato Grosso State, Brazil", by AGA Mathews (1977. The number of citations has increased over the years after the first citation. Mathews book was cited in articles, reviews, theses, dissertations, books, book chapters, abstracts in conference proceedings, comments and scientific notes. Most these studies are empirical and descriptive. The studies were conducted in 35 countries of the Neotropical, Palearctic, Afrotropical, Nearctic, Australasia and Indomalaya regions. 55% of the studies were carried out in Brazil. The journals Sociobiology and Insectes Sociaux, have social insect studies within its scope, and the highest number of articles citing Mathews. Most of the 71 authors that cited Mathews more than twice are Brazilian. Constrictotermes cyphergaster was the most studied in over 80% of the studies addressing Isoptera. The most frequent keywords were termite, Isoptera and taxonomy, generalist terms indexed in most publications carried out in different countries. Most of the research studies were carried out in laboratories and native vegetation areas. Studies in agroecosystems were implemented predominantly in Brazil. This study shows the diversity of application (citations of Mathews' book, and that the number of citations will continue to increase due to the large amount of information presented by the author.

  9. Contributions of Gerard de Saussure to fission physics: Subthreshold and near-subthreshold measurements at the ORELA

    In the late 1960s, Strutinsky's theoretical work on the structure of the fission barrier, together with some new neutron cross-section measurements performed at Saclay and Gel, was called to Gerard de Saussure's attention, and he immediately recognized the importance of those developments. Indeed, de Saussure was quick to note that for neutron energies in the range of the fission barrier potential energy, fission cross-section measurements would yield direct information about the physical properties of the fission barrier. Under his leadership, a set of extensive and precise measurements was performed at the Oak Ridge Electron Linear Accelerator (ORELA) by an international group of researchers, lasting over two decades. Those measurements were unique in many respects: Fission widths were determined for many previously unreported resonances in the subthreshold region, and a detailed study was performed on the physical properties of the fission barrier at high nuclear deformations. In this paper, we report a specific part of the de Saussure's extensive involvement in the area of subthreshold fission physics: the 1979 measurement of the 238U(n,f) cross ection in the subthreshold and near-subthreshold regions. This cross section was measured in the energy region between 5 eV and 3.5 MeV using a large fission chamber loaded with high-purity 238U, which had 235U

  20. Editors' overview for the Alan Turner Memorial volume

    O'Regan, Hannah J.; Elton, Sarah; Schreve, Danielle


    The papers presented here, in this special volume dedicated to the memory of Alan Turner (1947-2012), provide a glimpse of the multi-faceted ways in which the mammalian fossil record can be investigated. The authors of contributions in this Special Issue are by no means an exhaustive list of his international collaborators and colleagues, and indeed, many are not represented here, but the contents cover many of the topics and issues that were of central archaeological and wider Quaternary mammalian interest to Alan. Although the papers are not intended to provide a comprehensive overview of all techniques that can be applied, the set nevertheless reveals a snapshot of the state-of-the-art and of some of the methods that have the potential to bring much more of the past to life. Alan always sought to move beyond the 'stamp-collecting' approach of simply listing which taxa were present at a site, attempting to elucidate what the presence of those animals might mean in terms of palaeoecology. In particular, the span of Alan's career has seen major advances in our understanding of Quaternary mammalian biostratigraphy and palaeobiogeography, the widespread application of novel techniques such as ancient DNA, the development of high-precision geochronology and the discovery of new hominin species. The papers presented here reflect those developments and highlight interdisciplinary approaches, from examination of sediments to careful measurements of the fossils themselves, from modelling the presence of taxa at particular points in the Quaternary to examination of the similarities and differences in fauna within and between sites.

  1. Alan Turing's Legacy: Info-Computational Philosophy of Nature

    Dodig-Crnkovic, Gordana


    Alan Turing's pioneering work on computability, and his ideas on morphological computing support Andrew Hodges' view of Turing as a natural philosopher. Turing's natural philosophy differs importantly from Galileo's view that the book of nature is written in the language of mathematics (The Assayer, 1623). Computing is more than a language of nature as computation produces real time physical behaviors. This article presents the framework of Natural Info-computationalism as a contemporary natu...

  3. Development of hydrogen storage systems using sodium alanate

    Lozano Martinez, Gustavo Adolfo


    In this work, hydrogen storage systems based on sodium alanate were studied, modelled and optimised, using both experimental and theoretical approaches. The experimental approach covered investigations of the material from mg scale up to kg scale in demonstration test tanks, while the theoretical approach discussed modelling and simulation of the hydrogen sorption process in a hydride bed. Both approaches demonstrated the strong effect of heat transfer on the sorption behaviour of the hydride bed and led to feasible methods to improve and optimise the volumetric and gravimetric capacities of hydrogen storage systems. The applied approaches aimed at an optimal integration of sodium alanate material in practical hydrogen storage systems. First, it was experimentally shown that the size of the hydride bed influences the hydrogen sorption behaviour of the material. This is explained by the different temperature profiles that are developed inside the hydride bed during the sorptions. In addition, in a self-constructed cell it was possible to follow the hydrogen sorptions and the developed temperature profiles within the bed. Moreover, the effective thermal conductivity of the material was estimated in-situ in this cell, given very good agreement with reported values of ex-situ measurements. It was demonstrated that the effective thermal conductivity of the hydride bed can be enhanced by the addition of expanded graphite. This enhancement promotes lower temperature peaks during the sorptions due to faster heat conduction through the bed, which in addition allows faster heat transfer during sorption. Looking towards simulations and further evaluations, empirical kinetic models for both hydrogen absorption and desorption of doped sodium alanate were developed. Based on the results of the model, the optimal theoretical pressure-temperature conditions for hydrogen sorptions were determined. A new approach is proposed for the mass balance of the reactions when implementing

    In order to prove that mathematics cannot be exhausted by a finite set of procedures, Alan Turing conceives, in 1936, of an abstract machine 1. The machine makes its debut in “On Computable Numbers with an application to the Entscheidungsproblem,” his first major mathematical paper 2. A close reading of this machine’s dynamic will show that Turing’s thought in the field of mathematics is a consciously embodied thought that contemplates its own incompleteness.

  11. Freedom 7 the historic flight of Alan B. Shepard, Jr.

    Burgess, Colin


    Inevitably, there are times in a nation’s history when its hopes, fears and confidence in its own destiny appear to hinge on the fate of a single person. One of these pivotal moments occurred on the early morning of May 5, 1961, when a 37-year-old test pilot squeezed himself into the confines of the tiny Mercury spacecraft that he had named Freedom 7. On that historic day, U.S. Navy Commander Alan Shepard carried with him the hopes, prayers, and anxieties of a nation as his Redstone rocket blasted free of the launch pad at Cape Canaveral, hurling him upwards on a 15-minute suborbital flight that also propelled the United States into the bold new frontier of human space exploration. This book tells the enthralling story of that pioeering flight as recalled by many of the participants in the Freedom 7 story, including Shepard himself, with anecdotal details and tales never before revealed in print. Although beaten into space just three weeks earlier by the Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, Alan Shepard’s h...

It is important both in itself and because it is an intermediate step in many other important problems. Gaussian elimination is nowadays the standard method for solving this problem numerically on a computer and it was the first numerical algorithm to be subjected to rounding error analysis. In 1948, Alan Turing published a remarkable paper on this topic: “Rounding-off errors in matrix processes” (Quart. J. Mech. Appl. Math. 1, pp. 287-308. In this paper, Turing formulated Gaussian elimination as the matrix LU factorization and introduced the “condition number of a matrix”, both of them fundamental notions of modern Numerical Analysis. In addition, Turing presented an error analysis of Gaussian elimination for general matrices that deeply influenced the spirit of the definitive analysis developed by James Wilkinson in 1961. Alan Turing’s work on Gaussian elimination appears in a fascinating period for modern Numerical Analysis. Other giants of Mathematics, as John von Neumann, Herman Goldstine, and Harold Hotelling were also working in the mid-1940s on Gaussian elimination. The goal of these researchers was to find an efficient and reliable method for solving systems of linear equations in modern “automatic computers”. At that time, it was not clear at all whether Gaussian elimination was a right choice or not. The purpose of this paper is to revise, at an introductory level, the contributions of Alan Turing and other authors to the error analysis of Gaussian elimination, the historical context of these contributions, and their influence on modern Numerical Analysis.La resolución de sistemas de ecuaciones lineales es sin duda el problema más importante en Matemática Aplicada.

  20. Preparation of polyaniline/sodium alanate hybrid using a spray-drying process

    Nowadays, hydrogen is highly interesting as an energy source, in particular in the automotive field. In fact, hydrogen is attractive as a fuel because it prevents air pollution and greenhouse emissions. One of the main problems with the utilization of hydrogen as a fuel is its on-board storage. The purpouse of this work was to develop a new hybrid material consisting of a polyaniline matrix with sodium alanate (NaAlH4) using a spray-drying process. The polyaniline used for this experiment was synthesized by following a well-established method for the synthesis of the emeraldine base form of polyaniline using dodecylbenzenesulfonic acid as dopant. Micro particles of polyaniline/sodium alanate hybrids with 30 and 50 wt% of sodium alanate were prepared by using a spray-drying technique. Dilute solutions of polyaniline/sodium alanate were first prepared, 10g of the solid materials were mixed with 350 ml of toluene under stirring at room temperature for 24h and the solutions were dried using spray-dryer (Büchi, Switzerland) with 115°C of an inlet temperature. The hybrids were analyzed by differential scanning calorimetry, FT-IR and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The addition of sodium alanate decreased the glass transition temperature of the hybrids when compared to neat polyaniline. FT-IR spectrum analysis was performed to identify the bonding environment of the synthesized material and was observed that simply physically mixture occurred between polyaniline and sodium alanate. The SEM images of the hybrids showed the formation of microspheres with sodium alanate dispersed in the polymer matrix

  2. LEDs/ALAN-Working To Be Good Neighbors

    Adams, Robert


    ALAN (Artificial Light At Night) and LEDs have recently become major discussion topics in the areas of astronomy, light pollution, endangered species and human health to mention but a few. In years past, MH, LPS and HPS dominated night lighting with LPS and its associated narrow spectrum as the preferred source around observatories and shorelines. LEDs offer the ability to modify the spectrum, realize substantial energy savings and other associated benefits while meeting the requirements of the astronomy community.The primary concern of the different groups relates to blue light content of the LED. For astronomers, the molecular (Raleigh) scattering related to the blue light interferes with certain portions of the spectrum used for deep space studies. The ecologists studying various endangered species find blue and green light can be related to declining leatherback turtle population in certain areas of the world. Other animals ranging from bats to moths and other insects are now being studied to determine the effect of the blue light spectrum on their behavior. The impact of blue light on the human circadian rhythm and vision, especially in the older population, is being extensively studied today.This presentation will discuss the spectral power distribution (SPD) of various light sources, the performance of new LED solutions and how the SPD of these new LED’s can be adapted to address some of the issues raised by various constituencies. A discussion describing why some of the metrics used to describe standard lighting are not adequate for specifying the new LED solutions with the modified spectra will be included.Today, lighting plans and implementation are all too often based on opinions and limited data. The ensuing problems and repercussions make it imperative to collect accurate and thorough information. Data collection is now ongoing using a variety of techniques analyzing the “before” and “after” lighting results from the C of HI LED streetlight

  4. A density functional theory study of the one-dimensional alane

    The AlH1-6, Al2H1-7, Al3H1-9, AlmH3m (m = 4-10), and the periodic helical structure of the one-dimensional (1D) alane are studied by means of density functional theory calculations. The helical isolated structure is more stable than those in the corresponding cyclic and other geometries. A new periodic 1D helical alane structure is predicted for the first time. The stability of this periodic 1D helical alane structure has been confirmed by its large average binding energy based on AlH3, large energy gap of highest occupied molecular orbital and lowest unoccupied molecular orbital, and the typically double helical π-orbital which parallels its bone structure.

  5. Artificial Intelligence, Evolutionary Computing and Metaheuristics In the Footsteps of Alan Turing


    Alan Turing pioneered many research areas such as artificial intelligence, computability, heuristics and pattern formation.  Nowadays at the information age, it is hard to imagine how the world would be without computers and the Internet. Without Turing's work, especially the core concept of Turing Machine at the heart of every computer, mobile phone and microchip today, so many things on which we are so dependent would be impossible. 2012 is the Alan Turing year -- a centenary celebration of the life and work of Alan Turing. To celebrate Turing's legacy and follow the footsteps of this brilliant mind, we take this golden opportunity to review the latest developments in areas of artificial intelligence, evolutionary computation and metaheuristics, and all these areas can be traced back to Turing's pioneer work. Topics include Turing test, Turing machine, artificial intelligence, cryptography, software testing, image processing, neural networks, nature-inspired algorithms such as bat algorithm and cuckoo sear...

  6. Structure and hydrogen dynamics of pure and Ti-doped sodium alanate

    We have studied the structure, energetics, and dynamics of pure and Ti-doped sodium alanate (NaAlH4), focusing on the possibility of substitutional Ti doping in the bulk. Our ab initio calculations reproduce well the measured neutron inelastic scattering spectrum, which exhibits surprisingly strong and sharp two-phonon features. The calculations also reveal that substitutional Ti doping is energetically possible, and imply that Ti prefers to substitute for Na and is a powerful hydrogen attractor that facilitates multiple Al-H bond breaking. Our results hint at ways of improving the hydrogen dynamics and storage capacity of the alanates

    Loosely based on the Ripper murders in 1880s London, the graphic novel From Hell, written by Alan Moore and illustrated by David Gibbons, portrays the Victorian age as a site of class and gender struggle through the juxtaposition of two liminal opposites: the lower-class, female prostitute and the upper-class, male Freemason. This dissertation examines the interplay between the two character types through a socio-cultural analysis that spaces from Victorian ideology, to the condition of the u...

  19. The Third Force in Folklore Studies: Gary Alan Fine's Sociological Approach

    Dragana Antonijević


    Full Text Available This paper attempts to offer a critical overview of the theoretical and methodological contribution of micro-sociologist and social psychologist Gary Alan Fine to folklore studies. It begins with a discussion of both the major and most questioned points of his methodology, continues with a consideration of the wider folkloristical framework of his interpretation, and ends with a suggestion for innovation and improvement of Fine's analytical framework for the interpretation of folk narratives. Gary Alan Fine's most significant contribution to folklore studies was research of rumours and urban legends, including their meaning, function, and influence on individual behavior. In a series of papers, apart from offering an interpretation of various urban and corporate legends, he also demonstrated methods and means of connecting social and cultural factors with narrative content, in the context of social and economic structures and relations in post-industrial and late-capitalist global societies. Of special interest are papers in which he analyzes folklore as expressive culture and a form of symbolic communication between small groups, as an important form of selfidentification and behavior strategies both from within and without of the group. Fine makes a point when he diagnoses a lack of analyses of this sort in American folklore studies, wishing there were enough to make a significant turn in contemporary folkloristics. This is why Fine named his new research strategy the "third force". Another dimension of his contribution is the further elaboration of the analytical framework that relies on socio-structural, socio-psychological, symbolical and economical parameters of explanation. For that purpose, he constructed a theoretical and methodogical model called the folklore diamond. With his suggestions and critique of the existing state of folklore studies, Gary Alan Fine provided a very significant contribution to the science of folklore in general.

  20. Computational study of pristine and titanium-doped sodium alanates for hydrogen storage applications

    Dathar, Gopi Krishna Phani

    The emphasis of this research is to study and elucidate the underlying mechanisms of reversible hydrogen storage in pristine and Ti-doped sodium aluminum hydrides using molecular modeling techniques. An early breakthrough in using complex metal hydrides as hydrogen storage materials is from the research on sodium alanates by Bogdanovic et al., in 1997 reporting reversible hydrogen storage is possible at moderate temperatures and pressures in transition metal doped sodium alanates. Anton reported titanium salts as the best catalysts compared to all other transition metal salts from his further research on transition metal doped sodium alanates. However, a few questions remained unanswered regarding the role of Ti in reversible hydrogen storage of sodium alanates with improved thermodynamics and kinetics of hydrogen desorption. The first question is about the position of transition metal dopants in the sodium aluminum hydride lattice. The position is investigated by identifying the possible sites for titanium dopants in NaAlH4 lattice and studying the structure and dynamics of possible compounds resulting from titanium doping in sodium alanates. The second question is the role of titanium dopants in improved thermodynamics of hydrogen desorption in Ti-doped NaAlH4. Though it is accepted in the literature that formation of TiAl alloys (Ti-Al and TiAl3) is favorable, reaction pathways are not clearly established. Furthermore, the source of aluminum for Ti-Al alloy formation is not clearly understood. The third question in this area is the role of titanium dopants in improved kinetics of hydrogen absorption and desorption in Ti-doped sodium alanates. This study is directed towards addressing the three longstanding questions in this area. Thermodynamic and kinetic pathways for hydrogen desorption in pristine NaAlH4 and formation of Ti-Al alloys in Ti-doped NaAlH 4, are elucidated to understand the underlying mechanisms of hydrogen desorption.

  5. Alan Turing's electronic brain the struggle to build the ACE, the world's fastest computer

    Copeland, B Jack


    The mathematical genius Alan Turing, now well known for his crucial wartime role in breaking the ENIGMA code, was the first to conceive of the fundamental principle of the modern computer-the idea of controlling a computing machine's operations by means of a program of coded instructions, stored in the machine's 'memory'. In 1945 Turing drew up his revolutionary design for an electronic computing machine-his Automatic Computing Engine ('ACE'). A pilot model of the ACE ran its firstprogram in 1950 and the production version, the 'DEUCE', went on to become a cornerstone of the fledgling British

  13. A Semiotic Analysis of Visual Elements Particular to the Medium of Comics in Alan Ford by Max Bunker and Magnus

    Hrvoje Gržina


    Full Text Available This paper presents the results of a semiotic analysis of visual elements characteristic for the medium of comic books applied to the first seventy-five issues of the Croatian edition of Alan Ford. After a description of the cultural and historical framework, it analyzes individual signs in comics and different elements specific for expression in comic books in Western culture with the aim of exploring which of these signs are present in Alan Ford, and to what extent. The results show that the analyzed comic book is deeply rooted in the visual and literary Western tradition, and that it contains virtually all the characteristic elements of representation in comic books. However, the paper also concludes that certain iconic elements of the vocabulary of comics – i.e. onomatopoeic neologisms – are to a certain extent specific and typical only for Alan Ford.

  14. Professor Alan Turner (1947-2012). Specialist in Miocene-Pleistocene Carnivora, particularly Felidae and Hyaenidae and their palaeoecology

    O'Regan, Hannah; Turner, Adam; Antón, Mauricio


    Alan first trained as a telecom engineer, working for the GPO (General Post Office) which later became British Telecom. He never forgot this early training and was fascinated by how things worked - always happy to take something apart and fix it (although his attempt to close a large plate glass window with a geological hammer was not one of his successes). Following a few years as an engineer, he went to Sheffield University to study archaeology as a mature student in 1973. At this time Sheffield was a hotbed of prehistory with Graeme Barker, Robin Dennell and many others contributing to a truly research-led degree (with tutorials in the pub (well, it was the 1970s)) (Fig. 1). Alan's interest in bones developed at this time, and having graduated in 1976 he went on to take a PhD, supervised by Robin Dennell, on "Aspects of the palaeoecology of large predators, including man, during the British Upper Pleistocene, with particular emphasis on predator-prey relationships" which resulted in a life-long interest in the Carnivora and particularly hyaenas. Following his PhD, Alan moved to the Environmental Archaeology Unit at York to undertake a Science Research Council project on the morphometrics of domestic cattle and pigs from Coppergate and other major urban excavations in the city. Faced with a lot of measurements and statistics, Alan retained his interest in the animals themselves. The project also confirmed to Alan that prehistory was his metier, rather than the historic periods. Former York colleagues still fondly recall Alan's dry wit, and the day that he successfully put the irritating lab telephone beyond use with no externally visible trace of damage.

  16. Effect of substrate on the nucleation and growth of aluminum films deposited from methylpyrrolidine alane

    Methylpyrrolidine alane complex was used to deposit aluminum films on various types of substrates in a low pressure chemical vapor deposition reactor. The films grow easily on metallic and transition metal oxide surfaces, but not on any other tested semiconductor and dielectric substrates below 200 deg. C, showing strong substrate dependency. The free energies of precursor adsorption, surface dissociation reaction and product desorption, as well as the film wettability to substrate are among the key factors which affect the energy barrier for nucleation or deposition selectivity. In general, a metal substrate can enhance nucleation because it catalyzes the surface reactions and bonds strongly with aluminum. The oxidation-reduction reaction may occur between the precursor and substrate on a metal oxide surface. The reduced metal sites can be the seed nuclei and are possibly responsible for Al growth on the surfaces of transition metal oxides

  17. First-principles study of hydrogen vacancies in sodium alanate with Ti substitution

    Wang, Hao; Tezuka, Akinori; Ogawa, Hiroshi; Ikeshoji, Tamio


    In order to clarify the effect of hydrogen vacancies on the stability and structure of sodium alanate, NaAlH4, with and without Ti substitution for Al, first-principles electronic structure calculations were carried out. The relative thermodynamic stability of the Ti dopant and the H vacancy in a supercell was obtained. For the Ti-doped Na16Al16H64 supercell calculations, it was preferable to perform the initial substitution with a cluster of TiAlHn. We showed that substitution of a Ti atom for an Al atom in Na16Al15TiH63 with H vacancies increases the stability of the structure. A density of states analysis revealed weakening of the bond strength corresponding to increase in the bond length.

  19. Growth of high quality AlGaAs by metalorganic molecular beam epitaxy using trimethylamine alane

    Abernathy, C. R.; Jordan, A. S.; Pearton, S. J.; Hobson, W. S.; Bohling, D. A.; Muhr, G. T.


    AlGaAs grown by metalorganic molecular beam epitaxy (MOMBE) has been problematic due to oxygen and carbon contamination, particularly when triethylaluminum (TEAl) has been used as the aluminum source. Consequently, we have investigated trimethylamine alane (TMAAl) as a potential replacement for the conventional metalorganic Al sources. AlGaAs films with excellent structural and optical properties have been grown with this source. Photoluminescence intensities from AlGaAs grown by MOMBE at 500 °C using TMAAl are comparable to those from material grown by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition at 675 °C using triethylaluminum (TMAl). Carbon and oxygen levels in MOMBE-grown AlGaAs are drastically reduced in comparison to similar films grown with TEAl.

  4. The Society of Brains: How Alan Turing and Marvin Minsky Were Both Right

    Struzik, Zbigniew R.


    In his well-known prediction, Alan Turing stated that computer intelligence would surpass human intelligence by the year 2000. Although the Turing Test, as it became known, was devised to be played by one human against one computer, this is not a fair setup. Every human is a part of a social network, and a fairer comparison would be a contest between one human at the console and a network of computers behind the console. Around the year 2000, the number of web pages on the WWW overtook the number of neurons in the human brain. But these websites would be of little use without the ability to search for knowledge. By the year 2000 Google Inc. had become the search engine of choice, and the WWW became an intelligent entity. This was not without good reason. The basis for the search engine was the analysis of the ’network of knowledge’. The PageRank algorithm, linking information on the web according to the hierarchy of ‘link popularity’, continues to provide the basis for all of Google's web search tools. While PageRank was developed by Larry Page and Sergey Brin in 1996 as part of a research project about a new kind of search engine, PageRank is in its essence the key to representing and using static knowledge in an emergent intelligent system. Here I argue that Alan Turing was right, as hybrid human-computer internet machines have already surpassed our individual intelligence - this was done around the year 2000 by the Internet - the socially-minded, human-computer hybrid Homo computabilis-socialis. Ironically, the Internet's intelligence also emerged to a large extent from ‘exploiting’ humans - the key to the emergence of machine intelligence has been discussed by Marvin Minsky in his work on the foundations of intelligence through interacting agents’ knowledge. As a consequence, a decade and a half decade into the 21st century, we appear to be much better equipped to tackle the problem of the social origins of humanity - in particular thanks to the

  8. Developmental and environmental influences on physiology and behavior--2014 Alan N. Epstein Research Award.

    Tamashiro, Kellie L K


    Environmental factors acting during development of an individual may influence future health and disease susceptibility. Stressors, including altered diet, psychosocial stress, and immune challenge, during gestation can have negative consequences on the intrauterine environment and increase disease susceptibility of the developing fetus. The long-term effects on offspring have been observed in humans and include greater susceptibility to psychiatric disease, such as depression and anxiety disorders, and adverse metabolic conditions including obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Studies in my laboratory use rodent models and incorporate a multilevel approach to determine the behavioral, physiological, and neurobiological correlates of disease development as a consequence of early life stressors. The road I took in developing this research program was a rather circuitous one and navigating that path would not have been possible without the many mentors, colleagues, fellows and students who provided critical support. Although my name appears on the plaque of the Alan N. Epstein Research Award, I share this with all those I had the privilege of working with along that road, as briefly summarized in this article.

  10. The feasibility of using trimethylamine alane as an Al precursor for MOMBE

    Abernathy, C. R.; Jordan, A. S.; Pearton, S. J.; Ren, F.; Baiocchi, F.; Bohling, D. A.; Muhr, G. T.


    The growth of III-V Al-containing epitaxial structures by MOMBE has proven difficult due to the excessive oxygen and carbon contamination introduced by the Al source. Triethylaluminum (TEAl), the most commonly used precursor, produces unacceptable levels of both impurities in AlGaAs grown by MOMBE. We have grown AlGaAs films with excellent structural and optical properties using a novel source, trimethylamine alane (TMAAl). Photoluminescence intensities from AlGaAs grown by MOMBE at 500δC with TMAAl are comparable to those from material grown by MOCVD at 675δC using trimethylaluminum. In addition, carbon and oxygen levels in AlGaAs, as detected by SIMS, are drastically reduced in comparison to similar films produced with TEAl. We shall also discuss the effects of growth temperature and Al content on carbon and oxygen incorporation as well as crystallinity and provide preliminary device results on GaAs/AlGaAs HBTs prepared by the MOMBE technique.

  12. Environment between System and Nature: Alan Sonfist and the Art of the Cybernetic Environment

    Etienne Benson


    Full Text Available This paper examines the role of systems thinking in environmental(ist art and activism through a close reading and contextualization of Army Ants: Patterns and Structures (1972, an installation by Alan Sonfist, one of the leading figures in U.S. land art and environmental art of the 1960s and 1970s. It challenges a commonly held retrospective understanding of "environmental art" as being inherently about bringing nature into art (or into the gallery by showing how important systems thinking, which blurred the natural-cultural divide, was to Sonfist and other artists of the time. It suggests that these two understandings of the environment -- one focused on nature, the other on systems -- were both allied and in tension, and that the unexpected technical problems faced by Army Ants can be attributed at least in part to a failure to acknowledge those tensions. Similarly, the paper suggests, the legacy of glossing over these different understandings of the environment has been at the root of broader conceptual problems with environmental art and activism.

    Full Text Available Amaç: Veri madenciliği, genel olarak tanımlayıcı ve tahmin edici olmak üzere iki ana başlıkta incelenmektedir. Özellikle tıp alanında veri madenciliği daha çok tahmin edici yönüyle kullanılmaktadır. Bu çalışmada, ağaç tabanlı veri madenciliği yöntemlerinden birisi olan Random Forests (RF yönteminin incelenmesi ve sağlık alanından elde edilen bir veri seti üzerine uygulaması yapılarak sonuçlarının tartışılması amaçlanmıştır. Gereç ve Yöntemler: RF yönteminde, karar ormanını oluşturan karar ağaçları orijinal veri setinden bootstrap yöntemiyle seçilen farklı örneklerden oluşturulmaktadır. Her karar ağacında veri setindeki tüm değişkenlerden rastgele seçilen az sayıda değişken kullanılmaktadır. Her ağaç bir sınıf için oy vermektedir ve orman sınıflayıcısı bütün ağaçların verdiği oyları toplayarak bir sınıf için son tahminini yapmaktadır. Yöntemin uygulanması amacıyla Diş hekimliği alanından elde edilen bir veri seti kullanılmıştır. Bulgular: Toplam 43 tane demografik, dental ve serolojik özelliklere ait veriler kullanılarak RF yöntemi ile %95.4 oranında başarılı bir sınıflandırma yapılmıştır. Bu karar ormanının hata oranı ise %3.33 olarak bulunmuştur. Aynı veri seti için Bagging ve CART yöntemi ile de sınıflama yapılmış ve Bagging yöntemi ile hata oranı %5.4, CART yöntemi ile %8.75 olarak bulunmuştur. Sonuç: RF yöntemi ile veri setindeki değişken sayısı ve örnek sayısı ne kadar çok olursa olsun genellikle hata oranı düşük sınıflamalar yapılmaktadır. Hata oranının düşüklüğü ise bir topluluk yöntemi olmasından kaynaklanmaktadır. Özelikle çok sayıda değişkenin olduğu DNA veri seti gibi binlerce gen arasından önemli olanları tespit etmek için kullanılabilir.

  9. Towards understanding a mechanism for reversible hydrogen storage: theoretical study of transition metal catalysed dehydrogenation of sodium alanate.

    Ljubić, Ivan; Clary, David C


    On the basis of density functional theory and coupled-cluster CCSD(T) calculations we propose a mechanism of the dehydrogenation of transition metal doped sodium alanate. Insertion of two early 3d-transition metals, scandium and titanium, both of which are promising catalysts for reversible hydrogen storage in light metal hydrides, is compared. The mechanism is deduced from studies on the decomposition of a model system consisting of one transition metal atom and two NaAlH(4) units. Subsequently, the significance of such minimal cluster model systems to the real materials is tested by embedding the systems into the surface of the NaAlH(4) crystal. It is found that the dehydrogenation proceeds via breaking of the bridge H-Al bond and consequent formation of intermediate coordination compounds in which the H(2) molecule is side-on (eta(2)-) bonded to the transition metal centre. The total barrier to the H(2) release is thus dependent upon both the strength of the Al-H bond to be broken and the depth of the coordinative potential. The analogous mechanism applies for the recognized three successive dehydrogenation steps. The gas-phase model structures embedded into the surface of the NaAlH(4) crystal exhibit an unambiguous kinetic stability and their general geometric features remain largely unchanged. PMID:20379493

  10. Decomposition Process of Alane and Gallane Compounds in Metal-Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition Studied by Surface Photo-Absorption

    Yamauchi, Yoshiharu; Kobayashi, Naoki


    We used surface photo-absorption (SPA) to study trimethylamine alane (TMAA) and dimethylamine gallane (DMAG) decomposition processes on a substrate surface in metal-organic chemical vapor deposition. The decomposition onset temperatures of these group III hydride sources correspond to the substrate temperature at which the SPA reflectivity starts to increase during the supply of the group III source onto a group V stabilized surface. It was found that TMAA and DMAG start to decompose at about 150°C on an As-stabilized surface, which is much lower than the decomposition onsets of trialkyl Al and Ga compounds. Low temperature photoluminescence spectra exhibit dominant excitionic emissions for GaAs layers grown by DMAG at substrate temperatures above 400°C, indicating that carbon incorporation and the crystal quality deterioration due to incomplete decomposition on surface is much suppressed by using DMAG. A comparison of AlGaAs photoluminescence between layers by TMAA/triethylgallium and triethylaluminum/triethylgallium shows that the band-to-carbon acceptor transition is greatly reduced by using TMAA. TMAA and DMAG were verified to be promising group III sources for low-temperature and high-purity growth with low-carbon incorporation.

  11. Gas Source Melecular Beam Epitaxy Growth of High Quality AlGaAs Using Trimethylamine Alane as the Aluminum Source

    Okamoto, Naoya; Ando, Hideyasu; Sandhu, Adarsh; Fujii, Toshio


    We investigated the dependence of the background impurity incorporation on growth conditions and optical properties of undoped AlGaAs grown by gas source molecular beam epitaxy using trimethylamine alane (TMAAl), triethylgallium, and arsine. The use of TMAAl enabled us to reduce the carbon concentration (7× 1016 cm-3) to over one order of magnitude less than that using triethylaluminum (TEAl). The 77 K photoluminescence spectrum of undoped AlGaAs grown using TMAAl was dominated by excitonic band-edge emission not observable in AlGaAs grown using TEAl. Furthermore, we report for the first time the doping characteristics of n-type AlGaAs grown using disilane (Si2H6) as an n-type gaseous dopant source together with TMAAl. The carrier concentration (5× 1017--3× 1018 cm-3) in n-AlxGa1-xAs (x{=}0.09--0.27) was reliably controlled and showed the same Si2H6 flow rate dependence as that of GaAs. The activation efficiency of silicon was more than 60%. We demonstrated the excellent n-type doping characteristics by uisng TMAAl.

  13. Investigation on the nature of active species in the CeCl{sub 3}-doped sodium alanate system

    Fan Xiulin; Xiao Xuezhang [Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Zhejiang University, 38 Zheda Road, Hangzhou 310027 (China); Chen Lixin, E-mail: [Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Zhejiang University, 38 Zheda Road, Hangzhou 310027 (China); Li Shouquan; Wang Qidong [Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Zhejiang University, 38 Zheda Road, Hangzhou 310027 (China)


    Research highlights: > The additive of CeCl{sub 3} is reduced in doping process, causing the formation of NaCl and highly dispersed Ce species. > After dehydrogenation, Al-Ce alloy with a structure of CeAl{sub 4} comes into being and remains almost unchanged in the following cycles. > Directly doping CeAl{sub 4} into the system results in much similar kinetics. - Abstract: CeCl{sub 3}-doped NaAlH{sub 4} was directly synthesized in hydrogenation process using NaH/Al with 2 mol% CeCl{sub 3} under ball-milling. X-ray diffraction was utilized to unveil the nature of cerium during NaAlH{sub 4} synthesis process and succedent cycling. It is found that, CeCl{sub 3} is reduced in the ball-milling process and following cycles, causing the formation of NaCl and Al-Ce alloy with a structure of CeAl{sub 4}. The catalytic enhancement arising upon doping the ball-milled CeAl{sub 4} alloy is quite similar to that achieved in the CeCl{sub 3}-doped sodium alanate. Because the CeAl{sub 4} dopant does not consume the effective hydrogen storage component, the CeAl{sub 4}-doped NaAlH{sub 4} exhibits more hydrogen storage capacity. Moreover, CeCl{sub 3}-doped NaAlH{sub 4} and CeAl{sub 4}-doped NaAlH{sub 4} exhibit similar apparent activation energies estimated from Kissinger's method, suggesting the reactions are all determined by the same rate-limiting step. These results clearly demonstrate that the in situ formed CeAl{sub 4} acts as active species to catalyze the reversible dehydriding/rehydriding of NaAlH{sub 4}.

    Full Text Available As one follows the climate negotiations, year after year, one cannot help but feel frustrated, and wonder how we got to this impasse between policy-makers – who are advocating techno-fixes to engineer our way out of the problem, and citizens – who are pushing for democratic, sustainable, people-oriented solutions. To illustrate this, I present two dichotomous initiatives to the climate change crisis: on one hand, the Cochabamba People’s agreement, calling for a ‘global referendum or popular consultation on climate change in which all are consulted’ and the Copenhagen Accord on the other where a handful of world leaders – technocrats – tried to take the planet’s future into their own hands.

  7. Electrões inobserváveis e estrelas invisíveis: em torno do problema do Realismo em Ciência: Bas C. van Fraassen versus Alan Musgrave

    Ribeiro, Cláudia de Nóbrega Moita Quelhas


    The aim of this thesis is to revisit the problem of realism in science. Hence we start by confronting the perspectives concerning some relevant issues of the realist, semi-realist and non-realist philosophers who stood out during the last few decades. Then we analyse texts by two of the participants in this debate: Bas C van Fraassen’s‘ Arguments Concerning Scientific Realism’, where the author states his constructive empiricist position; and ‘Realism versus Constructive Empiricism’, by Alan ...

  9. Alan R. Barton Nuclear Plant Units 1, 2, 3 and 4: Draft environmental statement (Docket Nos. 50-524, 525, 526 and 527)

    The proposed action is the issuance of construction permits to the Alabama Power Company for the construction of the Alan R. Barton Nuclear Plant Units 1, 2, 3 and 4. The Barton Plant, located on the Coosa River in Chilton and Elmore Counties, Alabama, will employ boiling water reactors to produce up to 3579 megawatts thermal (MWt) from each unit. A steam turbine-generator will use the heat to provide 1159 MWe (net) of electrical power capacity. A stretch power level of 3758 MWt (1209 MWe) is anticipated from design data and is considered in the assessments contained in this statement. The exhaust steam will be cooled in a closed cycle mode by mechanical cooling towers with water from the Coosa River. Construction of the plant and adjacent facilities will disturb an area of about 1025 acres. the land presently consists of forest land and some cropland. The impact is considered minor. About 18,460 acres will be required for the transmission line routes. The land presently consists of forest, pasture and cropland. No unique land usage is involved in the routes selected. The impacts are considered minor. Station construction will involve some community impacts. Highway congestion, due to increased traffic associated with construction and commuting activities, will have a moderate adverse impact on the local area. The number of construction workers moving into the area is expected to place a strain on the local school systems, housing and community services. Noise, dust, and odor during construction will have a minor adverse effect upon nearby residents in the sparsely populated area. 125 refs., 25 figs., 56 tabs

  10. Alan Greenspan, the confidence strategy

    Edwin Le Heron


    Full Text Available To evaluate the Greenspan era, we nevertheless need to address three questions: Is his success due to talent or just luck? Does he have a system of monetary policy or is he himself the system? What will be his legacy? Greenspan was certainly lucky, but he was also clairvoyant. Above all, he has developed a profoundly original monetary policy. His confidence strategy is clearly opposed to the credibility strategy developed in central banks and the academic milieu after 1980, but also inflation targeting, which today constitutes the mainstream monetary policy regime. The question of his legacy seems more nuanced. However, Greenspan will remain 'for a considerable period of time' a highly heterodox and original central banker. His political vision, his perception of an uncertain world, his pragmatism and his openness form the structure of a powerful alternative system, the confidence strategy, which will leave its mark on the history of monetary policy.

    Smeenk, Chris

    The study of Einstein's theory of general relativity experienced a renaissance beginning in the early 1960s. Prior to this resurgence of interest, general relativity was isolated from mainstream physics-admired for its elegance, perhaps, but only from a distance. The generation of students who risked their careers by entering this neglected field has now reached the age of festschrifts. In June of 2000, Caltech hosted "Kipfest," a conference in honor of Kip Thorne's 60th birthday. Thorne started graduate school at Princeton in 1962 and began research in general relativity under John Wheeler's guidance in the heady early days of the renaissance. Since then, he has played a prominent role in general relativity: as co-author of the influential textbook Gravitation, as a leader in research regarding astrophysical applications of Einstein's theory, and as a co-founder and chief advocate for the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO), to mention a few aspects of his far-reaching work. "Kipfest" included 14 speakers discussing fields to which Thorne has contributed. But the conference also reflected Thorne's long-standing commitment to communicating science to a general audience: Igor Novikov, Stephen Hawking, Timothy Ferris, and Alan Lightman gave popular talks at "Kipfest," with Thorne himself tricked into delivering a fifth. The Future of Spacetime gathers adaptations of these five lectures, along with a lengthy introductory essay by Richard Price.

  11. Alan Turing: person of the XXth century?

    Sánchez Ron, José M.


    Full Text Available “Time” magazine chose Albert Einstein as “Person of the Century.” This was undoubtedly a reasonable choice, but as I will argue in this article, there are also good reasons for contending that Turing might have received this honor. One such reason I consider here is his purely scientific work, which stems from the greatest mathematical tradition, and how it affected the development of mathematics itself and was finally instrumental in shaping a new technological world. This is true both as regards the computation and treatment of information as well as the establishment of new forms of social relations. In relation to the foregoing, we have Turing’s contributions to the deciphering of secret codes during the Second World War, which in a somewhat metaphorical sense may be regarded as a new tool for undermining personal privacy, that civil right whose denial finally ruined his lifeEn diciembre de 1999, la revista Time eligió a Albert Einstein “The Person of the Century”. Fue, no cabe duda, una elección razonable, pero, como se argumenta en este artículo, existen también buenos argumentos para sostener que Turing podría haber recibido tal honor. En apoyo de semejante tesis están sus trabajos puramente científicos, que se esbozan aquí, trabajos que entroncan con la mejor tradición matemática, y cómo afectaron al desarrollo matemático, siendo finalmente instrumentales en la configuración de un nuevo mundo tecnológico, tanto en lo que al cálculo y manejo de información se refiere, como en lo relativo al establecimiento de nuevas formas de relaciones sociales. Relacionadas con lo anterior, se encuentran las aportaciones que hizo durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial al desciframiento de códigos secretos, que, en cierto sentido, metafórico, se pueden considerar como una nueva herramienta para socavar la privacidad, ese derecho civil cuya negación arruinó su propia vida.

  16. X-ray Diffraction and NMR Studies of Na3-nLinAlH6 (n=0, 1, 2) Alanates Synthesized by High-Pressure Reactive Ball Milling

    The present work combines X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis and NMR Study of Na3-nLinAlH6 (n = 0, 1, 2) alanates synthesized by high-pressure reactive ball milling. Reactive ball-milling of alkali hydrides and Al Under it hydrogen pressure of 10 MN allows for the synthesis of Na3AlH6 and Na2LiAlH6 with a yield higher than 90 wt % When using 2 mol % of TiCl3 as a dopant The synthesis of NaLi2AlH6 compound by reactive ball Milling was not Successful The crystal Structure of both Na3AlH6 and Na2LiAlH6 phases are in agreement with previous publications. The phase compositions of the synthesized samples obtained from XRD analysis are in good agreement with the results determined from NMR refinements Without the addition of TiCl3, Na3AlH6 compound Could also be formed, although the reaction was not complete due to slow kinetics. For the magic angle spinning NMR 26Al, 23Na, 6Li, and 1H spectra, strong bulk magnetic Susceptibility (BMS) effects have been observed to affect to the same extent all detected lines and thus indicates that paramagnetic species (Ti3+ or Ti0 bearing phase) are present and well dispersed in the samples. 23Na and 27Al NMR spectra call be refined with very similar NMR parameters for both doped and non doped samples, suggesting that Ti does not incorporate the crystal structure of these materials. Accurate values of 23Na and 27Al NMR parameters and quantification of the studied phases have been obtained thanks to a new treatment allowing for taking into account the BMS effects. Finally, it good agreement of experimental 23Na and 27Al quadrupolar parameters with density functional theory using the gauge-including projector augmented wave (DFT-GIPAW) predicted values is obtained. This work validates the use of DFT-GIPAW calculations for future NMR studies. (authors)

  3. Postmodern Heroics, Misreading and Irony in the Fictions of James Alan McPherson and Toni Morrison%麦克斐逊与莫里森小说的后现代豪语、误读与反讽



    近35年来,随着美国少数族裔作家(包括非洲裔美国作家)在"美国性"定义问题上的重要性日益突显,美国文学研究的重心发生了深刻的变化.到底是什么构成了"非洲裔美国人身份或黑人身份"?这一问题在非洲裔美国文学内部引发了激烈的对话,而在诺贝尔文学奖得主托妮·莫里森和普利策小说奖得主詹姆士·阿兰·麦克斐逊的小说中,这类讨论显得尤为深刻.本文通过细读莫里森的小说《柏油娃》和麦克斐逊的两篇短篇小说,即"我为什么喜欢乡村音乐"和"活动空间",探讨其中隐含的关于种族真实性问题的争论.本文的中心论点是,作品通过旅行而不是通过对种族概念的抽象化,传达出作品人物对自己身份和身份归宿的理解.就本质而言,这些故事是在对一个观念进行言说,即身份是一个过程问题而不是位置问题.%American literary studies have witnessed a profound shift in emphasis over the last thirty five years in the United States, with minority writers, including African American writers, taking a more prominent role in defining what it means to be American.We also find within African American literature, there has come to be a vigorous dialogue as to what constitutes an authentic African American, or black, identity.This discussion has been especially profound in the fictions of Nobel Laureate, Toni Morrison, and the Pulitzer-Prize-winning fiction writer, James Alan McPherson.This essay seeks to examine this struggle over issues of racial authenticity by examining Morrison's 1980 novel, Tar Baby, and two short stories by McPherson, "Why I Like Country Music" and "Elbow Room." At the center of the argument is that it is travel, not an essentialized notion of race, that informs the characters' understanding of who they are and who they can be.In essence, the stories speak to the notion that identity is a matter of process, not location.

    Full Text Available The aim of this research is to determine which components form poetic texts with regard to Jakobson’s poetic function of language model and the relevance of poems in Turkish course books to poetic genre in this aspect. The difference of poetic language described by Jakobson with the poetic function term is seen both in content and expression plane. Poetic function focuses on the settlement form of message, not its content. The content in the message is compressed. Some parallelisms and juxtapositions are constructed to constitute a new signification system. In the research, the poems in Turkish course books are evaluated in terms of the features stated by content analysis. It is figured out that the poems include features of poetic language inadequately. It is also found that most of the poems were chosen according to the theme and the topic. Activities in workbooks and teacher manuals are also far away from prior dimensions of poetry. For this reason, poems in Turkish course books are poor texts to get students to comprehend the features of poetic genre and provide perfect instances related to artistic use of language – in other words, teach a new domain of language use. It is also identified that these poems are not compatible with the goals, basic skills, meta skills, and acquisitions of teaching Turkish. It is suggested that Turkish course books should have texts having high poetic features and activities should be prepared according to features of poetic language Bu çalışmanın amacı şiir bilimin temel ilkeleri ve Jakobson’un dilin şiirsel işlevi modeline dayanarak şiir metinlerinin hangi öğelerden oluştuğunu saptamak ve buna bağlı olarak Türkçe ders kitaplarında yer alan şiirlerin şiir türüne uygunluğunu belirlemektir. Jakobson’un şiirsel işlev terimiyle betimlediği şiir dilinin farklılığı hem anlatım hem içerik düzleminde kendini gösterir. Şiirsel işlevin önceliği iletinin gönderdiği i

    ğretimin son aşamasına kadar bu becerilerinin geliştirildiği süreci içine alan bir dönemdir. Yazma becerisi bilgi, birikim ve dili etkili kullanmayı gerektirdiğinden bu sürecin okuma, dinleme/izleme, konuşma ve dil bilgisi etkinlikleriyle de desteklenmesi gerekir.Öğrencilerin yazılı anlatım metinlerini inceleyen araştırmacılar, öğrenci metinlerinde birçok eksikliğin olduğunu, öğrencilerin yazma becerilerinin beklenen yeterliliğe ulaşamadığını ifade etmektedir. Bu becerideki eksikliklerin bilgi aşamasından bilgilerin beceriye dönüştürülememesine kadar geniş bir çerçeveye dağıldığı düşünülmektedir. Bu yüzden bu çalışmanın amacı, ortaöğretim 9. sınıf öğrencilerinin Dil ve Anlatım Ders Programı’nda da ifade edilen yazma becerisine yönelik kazanım cümleleri doğrultusunda yazılı anlatım alan bilgisi düzeylerini belirlemektir. Araştırmada ayrıca öğrencilerin yazılı anlatım alan bilgisi yeterlilik düzeylerinin başta cinsiyet olmak üzere diğer değişkenlere göre de değişip değişmediği tespit edilmiştir.Araştırmadan elde edilen bulgulara göre, ortaöğretim 9. sınıf öğrencilerin Yazılı Anlatım Alan Bilgisi Testi genel başarı puanları ortalamaları 100 tam puan üzerinden 59 puanla sınırlı kalmıştır. Yine 9. sınıf öğrencilerinin yazılı anlatım alan bilgisi başarı düzeyleri, cinsiyet değişkenine göre anlamlı bir farklılık göstermezken öğrencilerin akademik başarına, serbest yazma etkinliği yapmalarına, günlük tutmalarına, Dil ve Anlatım dersini sevmeleri ile yazma etkinliklerinden memnun olmalarına göre ise değişmektedir. Araştırmanın sonunda elde edilen sonuçlara bağlı kalınarak Dil ve Anlatım derslerini veren öğretmenlere bazı önerilerde bulunulmuştur.

    Full Text Available Der Band versammelt Perspektiven unterschiedlicher wissenschaftlicher Disziplinen zur performativen Herstellung von Geschlecht in den Bereichen von Musik, Theater und Medienkultur. Ausgangspunkt und Verbindungsglied der Beiträge ist Judith Butlers Konzept zur Performativität von Geschlecht, das in seiner Relevanz für musikwissenschaftliche Frauen- und Genderforschung diskutiert wird. Im Zentrum steht die Reflexion der musikalischen Aufführung als Aufführung performativer Akte zur Konstruktion von Geschlechteridentitäten. Über die musikwissenschaftliche Perspektive hinaus liefern die verschiedenen Studien anregende und weitreichende Impulse zur Betrachtung künstlerischer Ausdrucksformen im Prozess der soziokulturellen Konstruktion von Geschlecht und Sexualität.The volume collects different disciplinary perspectives on the performative production of gender in the areas of music, theater, and media culture. The point of departure and nexus of the contributions is Judith Butler’s concept of the performativity of gender, which is discussed in its relevance for women���s and gender research in musicology. Central is the reflection on the musical performance as a performative act for the construction of gender identities. Over and beyond the perspective of musicology, the different studies provide stimulating and broad-reaching impulses for the consideration of artistic forms of expression in the process of the sociocultural construction of gender and sexuality.

    LiAlH4 doped with Ni and Ce(SO4)2 additives and the effect of doping on temperature and hydrogen release were studied by pressure-content-temperature (PCT) experiment and X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis.It is indicated that doping with Ni induces a significant decrease in temperature in the first step and LiAlH4 doped with 1mol% Ni presents the most absorption of hydrogen.Doping with Ce(SO4)2 also causes a marked decrease,while the amount of hydrogen release changes only slightly.The results from X-ray diffraction analysis show that doping does not cause any structural change; Ni and Ce-containing phases are not observed at room temperature or even at 250℃.

  6. Sodium alanate nanoparticles--linking size to hydrogen storage properties.

    Baldé, Cornelis P; Hereijgers, Bart P C; Bitter, Johannes H; de Jong, Krijn P


    Important limitations in the application of light metal hydrides for hydrogen storage are slow kinetics and poor reversibility. To alleviate these problems doping and ball-milling are commonly applied, for NaAlH 4 leading to particle sizes down to 150 nm. By wet-chemical synthesis we have prepared carbon nanofiber-supported NaAlH 4 with discrete particle size ranges of 1-10 microm, 19-30 nm, and 2-10 nm. The hydrogen desorption temperatures and activation energies decreased from 186 degrees C and 116 kJ.mol (-1) for the largest particles to 70 degrees C and 58 kJ.mol (-1) for the smallest particles. In addition, decreasing particle sizes lowered the pressures needed for reloading. This reported size-performance correlation for NaAlH 4 may guide hydrogen storage research for a wide range of nanostructured light (metal) hydrides. PMID:18459778

    El New Deal fue impulsado por unos 200 0 300 jóvenes pragmáticos, abogados y economistas en su mayoría, preocupados sobre todo por cuestiones de política y de persuasión. Aunque se consideraban a sí mismo como keynesianos, las ideas de Keynes no tuvieron entonces un impacto muy profundo en sus recomendaciones de política. Los principales desarrollos aparecieron bajo la forma de  actas y memorandos, a menudo de circulación restringida. Aun tenían mucho que aprender de la teoría General y existían muchas ideas y confusiones que era necesario despejar. Los análisis hechos antes del 37 no eran tan sencillos como parece sugerir la analogía del "impulso inicial".  Esta idea, lejos de significar que lo único que se necesitaba era un empujón inicial del gasto para alcanzar la recuperación, planteaba que le gasto debía continuar todo el tiempo que fuera necesario hasta que la construcción, financiada por el sector privado, lograra despegar. En cuanto a las causes de la recesión del 37, Currie ubicaba a la caída en la contribución neta, en conjunto con los cuellos de botella, las fuertes alzas de salarios y el auge de los inventarios como factores explicativos esenciales.

    The New Deal was promoted by 200 or 300 pragmatic young men,lawyers and economists for the most part who were principally principally preoccupied whit questions of policy and persuasion, although they considered themselves Keynesians, Keynes' ideas did not have much impact on their policy recommendations at that time. Principal developments took the form of acts and memorandums which were often classified. They sril1 had a lot to learn about General Theory and there still many ideas and misunderstandings that had to be clarified, the analyses done before 1937 were not as simple as the "pum priming" analogy seems to suggest. This idea, far from signifying that only an initial push in spending had necessary to achieve recovery,suggested that spending had to be continuous for DS long as necessary until construction, financed by the private sector, got off the ground, Currie identified the fall in net construction, the bottlenecks, the high rises in salary and the upsurge of .inventories as the essential causes of the 1937 recession.

    Gherardi, Guido


    We investigate Turing's contributions to computability theory for real numbers and real functions presented in [22, 24, 26]. In particular, it is shown how two fundamental approaches to computable analysis, the so-called ‘Type-2 Theory of Effectivity' (TTE) and the ‘realRAM machine' model, have their foundations in Turing's work, in spite of the two incompatible notions of computability they involve. It is also shown, by contrast, how the modern conceptual tools provided by the...

    alan „Nerede İnsan Varsa Orada Umut Vardır‟, „Kedi Ağaca Çıktı‟ ve „Hazır Olun Fırtına Geliyor‟ adlı kısa öyküler metindilbilimsel bir bakış açısıyla incelenmeye çalışılmıştır. Metnin temel konusu ve alt konularının belirlenmesi; metnin görünen, anlaşılan kısmının, yani yüzey yapısının yanında, metnin derin yapısının, yani metnin arka planının ortaya konması ancak metindilbilimsel bir yaklaşımla mümkün olabilmektedir. Bu bağlamda, öncelikle metnin küçük ölçekli yapısını oluşturan artgönderim, öngönderim, eksiltili yapı, yineleme, bağıntı öğeleri, eşdizimsel örüntü gibi dilbilgisel ve sözcüksel bağlaşıklık düzenekleri ele alınmış, daha sonra öykülerden alınan örneklerle konuya açıklık kazandırılmıştır. Metnin büyük ölçekli yapısı bağlamında, anı türündeki „Hazır Olun Fırtına Geliyor‟, deneme türündeki „Nerede İnsan Varsa Orada Umut Vardır‟ ve mizah türündeki „Kedi Ağaca Çıktı‟ adlı metinler yorumlanmış, aynı kavram alanından sözcüklerin oluşturduğu örüntü ve bağlaşıklık düzeneklerine dayanarak anlamsal büyük yapıya ulaşılmaya çalışılmıştır. Metnin büyük ölçekli yapısını oluşturan küçük ölçekli yapı taşları, metnin diğer ögeleriyle metin örüntüsünü gerçekleştirerek metni anlamlı kılmaktadır. Metin çözümlemelerinde, küçük ölçekli yapıdan büyük ölçekli yapıya, büyük ölçekli yapıdan da üst yapı kategorilerine ulaşılmaya çalışılmalıdır. Metindilbilimin amacı, metinlerin yapılarını, yani dilbilgisel ve içeriksel kurgulanma biçimlerini ve bildirişimsel işlevlerini ortaya çıkarmak ve uygulamalı örneklerle göstermektir. Çalışma, metnin sıralı tümceler dizisi değil, izlek ve yapı yönünden tutarlı ve sürekli bir bütün olduğu gerçeğini öyküler üzerinden bize sunmaktadır.
