Katitzi möter Zoni som har flytt från ett koncentrationsläger i Tyskland, av sympati vill Katitzi rista in ett eget nummer på sin arm: Z-1234.
A professor of Music Analysis dies and his soul travels to meet the Children of the Light, who inquire about how music is learned on Earth. As a teacher on this subtler plane of existence, he is called on to override the merely rational way of understanding and communicating.
Instead, the evolution of sound is used as a metaphor to illustrate the journey of light into matter and the dualities generated by their opposition. The message of this imaginative story is about the linking of human beings to a higher-realm form of communication incorporated into the reality of the Earth of the future.
"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.
Unlike appreciating America's other natural wonders such as waterfalls, glaciers, mountains, or prairies, one must struggle to absorb, assimilate, and comprehend the Grand Canyon's tremendous scale. Captured here in over 250 vintage images is the human drama of survival and coexistence in the canyon, from the native tribes who struggled with life on the rim, to the pioneers who came to foster and manipulate the early tourist industry in America's oldest natural resource. Covering the tribes that called the canyon home and the seekers who flocked to the area to find their fortune in gold and tourism, author Kenneth Shields exposes the human layers so often overlooked. Seen here are the native tribes who survived the harshest conditions of the canyon, including the Hopi, Havasupai, Navajo, and Paiute.
Readers will recognize the images of popular tourist spots like the El Tovar Hotel and the Navajo Bridge, as well as the early conservationist faces of Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and William Taft.
