New perspectives on old texts: proceedings of the Tenth International Symposium of the Orion Center for the Study of the Dead Sea Scrolls and Associated Literature, 9-11January, 2005 (Studies on the texts of the Desert of Judah; Vol. 88)

This quantity provides new views at the historical texts came across at Qumran. The essays supply clean insights into specific texts and genres, via using tools and constructs drawn from different disciplines to the examine of the useless Sea Scrolls, and through exploring new in addition to long-standing concerns raised through those works.

Progress in Cryptology - AFRICACRYPT 2012: 5th International Conference on Cryptology in Africa, Ifrance, Morocco, July 10-12, 2012. Proceedings

This e-book constitutes the refereed complaints of the fifth overseas convention at the thought and alertness of Cryptographic suggestions in Africa, AFRICACRYPT 2011, held in Ifrane, Morocco, in July 2012. The 24 papers provided including abstracts of two invited talks have been rigorously reviewed and chosen from fifty six submissions.

Algorithmic Game Theory: 6th International Symposium, SAGT 2013, Aachen, Germany, October 21-23, 2013. Proceedings

This publication constitutes the complaints of the sixth overseas Symposium on Algorithmic video game concept, SAGT 2013, held in Aachen, Germany, in October 2013. The 25 papers provided during this quantity have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen from sixty five submissions. They disguise quite a few vital elements of algorithmic video game concept, equivalent to resolution suggestions in video game concept, potency of equilibria and the cost of anarchy, computational points of equilibria and online game theoretical measures, repeated video games and convergence of dynamics, evolution and studying in video games, coordination and collective motion, community video games and graph-theoretic elements of social networks, vote casting and social selection, in addition to algorithmic mechanism layout.

Example text

A half-melted bit of ice may show no boundaries in regular light, but between crossed polarizers, you may find that part of it is dark in one position and the other D Experiments with Polarized Light 33 part is dark in another position. Clearly, in such a case, it consists of two crystals. 3 Ice and mica In the section on ice, an interference figure was described, a black cross on a gray background, that could be seen under favorable conditions. It is not easy to see. One needs a rather thick piece of ice, with smooth surfaces, and an area that looks black in all orientations when the ice sheet is parallel to the plane of the polarizers.

They oscillate from side to side in all directions that are at right angles to the direction in which the light is traveling. However, it is possible to pass the light through something that will only let through light that is oscillating in one particular plane. Light oscillating in one plane only is called plane polarized light, or often simply polarized light. The thing causing the polarization of the light is called a polarizer. There are several kinds of polarizers. Every smooth, non-metallic, surface that reflects light partially polarizes it.

When limestone is metamorphosed, marble results. The calcite crystals become larger, some growing at the expense of others. Metamorphism of shale produces slate. Further metamorphism of slate produces schist, a rock full of mica that glistens in the sunlight. 4. Boulders, pebbles, and sand. If you live where you do not see any big rock masses exposed for you to study, pick up any small bits that you can find. Often they are dirty on the outside, and sometimes their surfaces have been changed by the weather.
