Mil-spec work was kind of a pain, but Winnifred Gurry was happy to take it on because it helped fund her research on her own pet project: a humanoid clank-bot to learn multiple tasks and serve as her shop assistant.
She never expected a metal construct to be the catalyst for change in her work with military liaison Major Dewar - or for her assistant to be commandeered.
Unspeakable Proposal is an erotic tale about two women, one man and a whole lot of hot sexy drama. What would you do? Would you share your marital bed with another woman for any reason? Well, this woman did. Hope and John Sabin have been happy married for five years. They have an extremely active sex life and like to keep things interesting in the bedroom. Props, role play, tools and fantasy reenactments are not taboo in the Sabin house. They are an insanely rich couple and have everything in life they could ever want except a baby.
After five years of trying to conceive naturally they are given the bad news that Hope cannot conceive or carry a child. Sure they could adopt or hire a surrogate mother, but even that is a complicated. The problem is that Hope is opposed to adoption and John is opposed to a surrogate. At thirty five years old and desperate, Hope does the unthinkable. She contracts Quanique a bisexual college student, to have a threesome with Hope and her husband, in hopes of conceiving a child. The trouble with this plan is that Quanique develops some plans of her on and John, Hope’s husband is completely unaware that there even is a plan. See how this saga unfolds when two women have designs on one man and one baby and one fortune. Who will triumph in the end? What would you do? Would you share your marital bed with another woman? This is an erotic romance novel and not intended for anyone under the age of 18. This book contains strong language, adult situations and explicit sex scenes.

"The highest standards of logical clarity are maintained." — Bulletin of The American Mathematical Society Written with exceptional lucidity and care, this concise text offers a rigorous introduction to finite differences and difference equations-mathematical tools with widespread applications in the social sciences, economics, and psychology. The exposition is at an elementary level with little required in the way of mathematical background beyond some facility with standard algebraic techniques and the essentials of trigonometry. Moreover, the author explains when needed such relevant ideas as the function concept, mathematical induction, binomial formula, de Moivre's Theorem and more. The book begins with a short introductory chapter showing how difference equations arise in the context of social science problems. Chapter One then develops essential parts of the calculus of finite differences. Chapter Two introduces difference equations and some useful applications in the social sciences: compound interest and amortization of debts, the classical Harrod-Domar-Hicks model for growth of national income, Metzler's pure inventory cycle, and others. Chapter Three treats linear differential equations with constant coefficients, including the important question of limiting behavior of solutions, which is discussed and applied to a variety of social science examples. Finally, Chapter Four offers concise coverage of equilibrium values and stability of difference equations, first-order equations and cobweb cycles, and a boundary-value problem. More extensive coverage is devoted to the relatively advanced concepts of generating functions and matrix methods for the solution of systems of simultaneous equations. Throughout, numerous worked examples and over 250 problems, many with answers, enable students to test their grasp of definitions, theorems and applications. Ideal for an undergraduate course or self-study, this cogent treatment will be of interest to all mathematicians, and especially to social scientists, who will find it an excellent introduction to a powerful tool of theory and research.

Το τρίτο μυθιστόρημα του Βαγγέλη Χατζηγιαννίδη από το 2000 - οπότε κυκλοφόρησαν κάνοντας αίσθηση "Οι τέσσερις τοίχοι"- λέγεται "Το ελάχιστο ίχνος" και μοιάζει με ουράνιο τόξο: γιατί σ' αυτό συνοψίζεται με ιλιγγιώδη ταχύτητα -χρωματική, αισθηματική και βιωματική- η πολυτάραχη ζωή ενός ανθρώπου. Και όχι μόνο.
Πάνω στη ζωή του κεντρικού ήρωα η ανάκλαση και η διάθλαση από άλλες ζωές δημιουργεί ένα συνεχές φάσμα, ένα φαινόμενο αφήγησης που καλύπτει πέντε δεκαετίες και μια διαδρομή από τα δάση του ορεινού βορρά στο αστικό τρίγωνο της αθηναϊκής θεατρικής πιάτσας. Ιώδες, πράσινο, ώχρα και κυανό, και οι διαβαθμίσεις τους, αλλά με διαφορετική οπτική γωνία και χρονική εκτροπή σε κάθε κεφάλαιο, κρατούν τον αναγνώστη αιχμάλωτο από την πρώτη σελίδα ως την τελευταία. Ο μύθος λέει ότι στη βάση του ουράνιου τόξου κρύβεται ένα πιθάρι με χρυσάφι για όποιον μπορέσει να φτάσει εκεί. Εδώ ο θησαυρός είναι αλλιώς: η αστραφτερή αφηγηματική επιφάνεια υποστηρίζεται από πλέγματα "στοχαστικών προσαρμογών" όπου διασταυρώνονται το ταλέντο, η καταγωγή, η πίστη, οι δεσμοί αίματος, η ομορφιά, η διαπλοκή, η αξία, η θυσία, το χρήμα, ο φθόνος, η ηδονή, η αγάπη.
