The study of literary style is often regarded as the exclusive province of the literary critic; yet, since verbal and literary expression are types of behavior involving the use of linguistic forms in a cultural context, it is apparent that the linguist, the psychologist, and the anthropologist are also concerned with aspects of verbal and literary style. The question then arises: Will interaction between these diverse disciplines result in a clearer understanding of the nature and...

This richly documented overview of the evolution of power systems completes a major contribution to the history of American technology, business, and society. Volume 1, a survey of the continuing use of water power in the nineteenth century, was published in 1979 and was awarded the Dexter Prize in the history of technology. Volume 2, published shortly after Hunter's death in 1984, dealt with the advent of steam power. Now Lynwood Bryant has edited and completed Hunter's draft materials to...

This book is the definitive guide to all of H.H. Richardson's work, built and unbuilt, extant and demolished - his municipal offices, educational buildings, department stores, libraries, railroad stations, churches, and private residences. It is heavily illustrated with sketches, plans, and interior and exterior photographs; maps and addresses are supplied for buildings which survive. The paperback edition contains new information on several of Richardson's projects as well as eight...

The traditional assumption that stock price changes could in theory be forecast by sufficiently detailed analysis of previous price fluctuations has only recently been found to have little empirical support when examined statistically. Some investigators now conclude that stock price changes are best approximated by classical Brownian motion.

A major achievement of Soviet mathematics education is the extensive program of extracurricular activities designed to discover and train future mathematicians and scientists at an early age. In recent years this program has taken on new dimensions. In 1964, the world-renowned mathematician, I. M. Gelfand, organized the Mathematics Correspondence School at Moscow University. Admission is based on highly competitive examinations. By 1968 more than 8,000 gifted secondary school students were...

Simulating Computer Systems provides an introduction to simulation for computer and communication-system designers who want to analyze the performance of their designs. In it MacDougall describes a discrete-event simulation language called smpl, discusses simulation modeling with smpl (using a variety of models as examples), describes the design of smpl, and presents a C language implementation.The book's first part introduces smpl simulation operations using a queueing network simulation...

An argument for retaining the notion of personal property in the products we “buy” in the digital marketplace. The open access edition of this book was made possible by generous funding from Arcadia – a charitable fund of Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin. If you buy a book at the bookstore, you own it. You can take it home, scribble in the margins, put in on the shelf, lend it to a friend, sell it at a garage sale. But is the same thing true for the ebooks or other digital goods you buy?...

Japanese Tone Structure provides a thorough, phonetically grounded description of accent and intonation in Tokyo Japanese and uses it to develop an explicit account of surface phonological representation. The unusual amount of quantitative phonetic data analyzed and its testing in a detailed model make this an important new study for theoretical phonologists, phoneticians, and specialists in Japanese. The authors' broader purpose, however, is to develop a general theory of surface...

Most histories of 20th century design cite Peter Behrens's seminal influence on three of his former prot_g_s - Gropius, Mies, and Le Corbusier - and mention the turbine factory and arc-lamp he designed for the German electric company, the AEG. Now the full story of the extraordinary collaboration between Peter Behrens and the AEG is disclosed in this extensive account of his industrial, graphic, and architectural designs. Illustrated with 600 halftones, 31 line drawings, and 53 four-color...

A comprehensive proposal for reforming copyright law to ensure sustainable public access to research and scholarship. Open access is widely supported by researchers, librarians, scholarly societies, and research funders, as well as large and small publishers. Yet despite this support—and the pandemic's demonstration of the importance of open access for scientific progress—the scholarly publishing market is failing to deliver open access quickly enough.

Carl Friedrich Gauss (1777-1855) is generally ranked with Archimedes and Newton as one of the three greatest mathematicians that ever lived. His work, in terms of its all-pervasive importance, its painstaking attention to detail, and its completely developed beauty, somehow reminds one of Beethoven, his contemporary and compatriot. Gauss was the last of the truly universal mathematicians and scientists, whose realm embraced virtually all the domains of pure and applied mathematics, astronomy,...

Although in the United States the scientific value of acupuncture is only now being clinically evaluated for the first time, needling is only one of a number of therapeutic disciplines which have proved effective in China for over two thousand years and which today provide common remedies for more than one quarter of the worlds population. Why, asks Dr. Porkert, shouldnt medical men everywhere have access to the premises and results of this medical knowledge?
