We say that there is a representation of the universal algebra B in the universal algebra A if the set of endomorphisms of the universal algebra A has the structure of universal algebra B. Therefore, the role of representation of the universal algebra is similar to the role of symmetry in geometry and physics. Morphism of the representation is the mapping that conserves the structure of the representation. Exploring of morphisms of the representation leads to the concepts of generating set and basis of representation. The set of automorphisms of the representation of the universal algebra forms the group. Twin representations of this group in basis manifold of the representation are called active and passive representations. Passive representation in basis manifold is underlying of concept of geometric object and the theory of invariants of the representation of the universal algebra. In the book I considered the concept of tower of representations of the tuple of universal algebras as the set of coordinated representations of universal algebras. The representation of universal algebra has different applications in mathematics and physics.

In Artificial Intelligence knowledge representation is a combination of data structures and interpretive procedures that leads to knowledgeable behavior. It is required to investigate such knowledge representation technique in which knowledge can be easily represented in computer. This book compares various knowledge representation techniques and proves that predicate logic is more efficient and accurate knowledge representation scheme. The algorithm presented in this book splits the English text into phrases/constituents and then represents these in predicate logic. Another algorithm splits the Urdu text into phrases/constituents and then represents these in predicate logic. These algorithms also regenerate the original sentences from the representation in order to check the accuracy of representation. These algorithms have been tested on real text of English and Urdu. As the algorithms work on pre-tagged input files, so if the tagging is done correctly then these algorithms achieve high level of accurately. Therefore it is required that there should be proper rules with the help of which one can correctly tag the input text into phrases/constituents.

Women and Democracy in Developing World

Gender inequality in most democratic countries in the world including Ghana has been a major setback to development. For instance, scholars have postulated on practical ideals and measures that countries could apply to close the gender gap if not completely eradicate women under-representation existing in most countries including Ghana. Ironically, Ghana’s population is made up of over 52% females but has less than 10% of females occupying political and economic positions within the country. This study “Women and Democracy in Ghana” analyzes the existing scholarly debate and discussions about the cultural and institutional causes for the under-representation of women within its political system. In effect, the book provides systematic evidence on the under-representation of women in Ghana’s parliament from independence in 1957 to the current legislature elected in December of 2008. Also included in the book is the tabular representation of women in Ghana’s parliament from 1957 to present. The research reveals that the under-representation of women within the political system has contributed in undermining Ghana’s democratic regime.

Empowering or Threatening?:A Representation of Women in Advertisements

4839 руб.
Representation of the woman in advertisements is a signifying practice especially in the discourse like print media and billboard whereas advertisements are the main tools for the consumer world to launch or introduce a product to the consumer. It involves a certain system of representation to make the message persuasive and attractive. This paper identifies the regressive and progressive politics inherent in the representation of women. On the one hand, it shows how some print and billboard advertisements threaten the existence of woman as women are presented eroticized, domesticated, stereotyped, and thus vulnerable to male gaze as well as commodification. On the other hand, this representation may forward ‘Female empowerment’. Celebration of femininity and re-conceptualizing femininity can be seen as a tacit resistance against patriarchal domination. However,this research aims at making them conscious about the fact of this kind of representation and focusing some advertisements which can be encouraging and at the same time empowering against their threatening politics of representation.

Management is an occupational area where women are severely underrepresented. The lack of women in top management position has been the subject of much debate in developed countries. Rare studies are available in south Asia and Pakistan as well .This book explores the factors that undermine the women’s representation at top management positions in universities of Pakistan. Quantitative method was used in the study. The study was descriptive and explanatory in nature. The main objectives of the study were (a) to identify the structural factors(that undermine the women’s representation at top management position in universities of Pakistan.(b) to identify the socio-cultural factors that undermine the women’s representation at top management position (c) to identify the individual factors. The universities under study consisted of 1/3rd of the HEC recognized public sector general universities of Pakistan, 9 universities were selected (Punjab, Federal and AJ&K). On the basis of the analysis it was concluded that socio-cultural factors are leading factors followed by structural/organizational factors.Unbiased representation of women in management is an important issue of HRM.

Consciousness and Meaning

5445 руб.
One of the most important problems of modern philosophy concerns the place of the mind - and in particular, of consciousness and intentionality - in a purely physical universe. Brian Loar was a major contributor to the discussion of this problem for over four decades. This volume contains two parts; one a selection of Loar's essays on the philosophy of language, the other on the philosophy of mind. A common thread in Loar's essays on language is his engagement with the Gricean program of reducing linguistic representation in terms of mental representation. In the philosophy of mind he was mostly concerned with understanding consciousness and intentionality (mental representation) from the subjective perspective. The central concern that unifies Loar's work in mind and language is how to understand subjectivity in a physical universe.

The issue of women has been very complex when it comes to representation and decentralisation of power by governments in democratically organised societies. International organisations, such as the United Nations, are putting pressure for gender equality to be addressed at the local government level, closer to the people. Studies have shown that women participate in greater numbers in local governments to fight against under-representation in decision-making processes (Hassim, 2005). However, this is not the case in every country, due to religious, political and cultural influences. This study attempts to address gender inequality issues at the local government level in South Africa. The overall objective of the study is to investigate women?s representation and participation at Msunduzi Municipality. Also, the study explores how women councillors are gaining support from other stakeholders in terms of addressing gender issues. Barriers and challenges women councillors are facing, and factors contributing to successful representation at the local government level are identified.

This book explores slave mother-child relationship in Tony Morrison’s Beloved and Harriet Jacobs’ Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl. The role of women and mothers in American slave history is demonstrated to understand the slave women and mothers’ representation in both selected works. Black slave women and mothers’ representation in the literary works about slavery is a main point of the exploration. For the purpose of the assessment, Morrison and Jacobs’ works are mainly chosen to be analyzed; however, some other sample slave narratives are also used to further investigate the women and mothers’ representation in literary works. This piece of writing mostly attempts to find whether there is a slave mother-child relationship or not and how it is portrayed in both works.

Namibia’s goal by 2020 is to achieve 50/50 representation of men and women at all levels of decision making. With only 24.4% of its parliament being represented by women, Namibia is far from achieving that goal. The purposes of this case study were to examine the reasons behind Namibia’s imbalanced representation of women in political decision making and identify actions that the government and people of Namibia can take to close the gender gap in political representation. This study used in-depth interviews with 8 purposefully selected Namibian members of parliament, 4 men and 4 women, and a review of parliamentary records and media reports. Results revealed that women face sizable obstacles in seeking election to parliament, in spite of laws and policies to promote gender equality and women’s rights. Recommendations include building women’s leadership capacity, demanding accountability from political parties, and reforming laws. The study should provide evidence for advocates and legislators to work for attitudinal changes, eliminating barriers, and reforming electoral law to foster women’s equal political representation and improve the conditions of women.

Animation and the Programmed, Abstract Aesthetic

The production of animated film content throughout the 20th and the 21st century has not only seen the progression of representational film and digital video works but also extensive explorations into abstraction. A trend that is evident is that what is real and what is not real in digital representation has since become increasingly intertwined into the abstract and so it is proposed that a further representation of the real needs to be considered and investigated. In this research project it is proposed that the idea of the impossibly real is this further representation of the real and is inherent in the role of abstraction and the computational logic of a digital system which calculates reality to constitute a simulated visual production. As an entry point the author reappropriates the technology of the programming method of Particle System Simulation to explore the computational logic of data-parameter manipulation as a programmed abstract aesthetic. The impossibly real is not real, but in this research project it proposed as a further representation of the real that could surpass the need for realist representation and interpretation in digital productions in the future.

The Representation of Absurdity in Thomas Pynchon's Fiction

4929 руб.
In The Crying of Lot49 and Gravity’s Rainbow, the concept of absurdity reigns from the beginning until the end. Indeed, there are characters who strive to abate the amount of their dislocation by stepping into the unknown to finally accept their unknown destiny. Absurdity is an unbearable, a truculent and a weird state of mind. In fact, Pynchon seems to be telling the reader that America has lost much of its historical and political energies. Yet, it should be understood that his project is primarily an artistic project whereby he seeks to explore and create an absurd style of representation in a world that has grown replete with signs emptied of their values. This work examines how Pynchon represents absurdity in his novels and explores the manifestations of such a representation.

Said’s postulations have a constitutive influence on Post-Colonial criticism. Being a practicing critic, an academic in the renowned US Columbia University, and an active intellectual in the Arab and the American intellectual scenes testifies to the instrumental role he played and still plays in shaping critical orientations concerning the representation of the Arabs/Palestinians/ Muslims in and by the West. This book undertakes the discussion of Said’s views concerning representation as an activity involved in all cultural practices. It addresses Said’s views concerning the misguided representation of the Orient(als) in Western culture and the entailing translation of Orientalist discourse into political, economic and military domination. The book also deals with the dimension of resistance to imperialist domination, the emergence of nationalist consciousness and its fundamental impact on resistance cultures as it appears in Said’s works. It finally investigates two main strains in Said’s postulations: the first is the role of criticism as an activity informing and informed by the society in which it is practiced; and the second is the intellectual’s function in society.

This work attempts to investigate main obstacles to women’s representation in political leadership in Jordan and how best they can be overcome? In order to answer this question, the book investigates various literature, surveys, research produced on the subject of women and political participation. The dissertation, while appropriating available academic research on women and political participation in the Arab region in general and Jordan in specific, is also based on a review of newspapers interviews with women MPs. The dissertation provides an illustration of women’s under-representation and outlines the common situation with emphasis on the Arab region. It also provides an analysis to the situation in Jordan and the associated socio-cultural, attitudinal, and institutional challenges. Through a study of literature, it became apparent that women’s under-representation in Jordan is similar to other Arab countries, and it differs in its attempt to adopt policies of liberalization and political reform.

In the popular debates about migration and integration of immigrants in Germany, the Turks are often at the centre as the largest minority group in Germany. So, this study aims to reveal that the German perception towards Turkey’s EU membership is in a great sense influenced by the relative share of the representation of the Turkish population in the German printed media. To illustrate this, the significance of the media has been explained to realize how effective they are for the public opinion. The representation of Turkish immigrants has been revealed through secondary literature and it has been focused on some title themes of the weekly magazine "Der Spiegel" to show how the ‘otherness’ of Turkish immigrants is constructed. The German public opinion about Turkey’s accession was analyzed and the significance of the public opinion has been explained with the reason of a possible referendum during the time when Turkey has fulfilled all conditions for the membership. Finally, the linkage between the representation of Turkish immigrants in the German printed media and the opposition of the German public in respect to Turkey’s accession into the EU has been clarified.

Creating awareness about representations is one of the objectives of the study. Before forming an opinion about the representation of print media in films it is important to know what those representations represent. Today there are online newspapers and it co-exists with the traditional print media. Thus the researcher has found it more important to study the portrayal of the print media in films in the context of today’s time and space. The researcher is not trying to appeal that print media should be potrayed in a certain way. The research contains analysis of some films to study the representation. Researcher is not being judgemental about the representations but only investigating the depiction of print media, journalists and professions in films, as film is a different medium from print. The researcher, a student of Communication feels the necessity of this enquiry about the representation of the print media in the films and the way in which it has been represented.

Some Problems in the Spectral Theory of Separated Dirac Operators

4839 руб.
This work describes a representation of the spectral function for the Dirac operator, and includes an application of this representation to the problem of bounding the points of spectral concentration of the operator. Conditions on the potential function under which an absolutely continuous spectrum exists are given. A connection is made between the Dirac system and a Riccati equation, and the spectral derivative is expressed using a series solution of the Riccati equation. Conditions under which this series converges are given. The terms of the series are then differentiated to obtain a representation of the second derivative of the spectral function. The question of relative asymptotic sizes of the terms of this representation are addressed. The construction and application of the representation are similar to those used to investigate the spectrum of the Sturm-Liouville operator.

Representation Theorems of abstract Banach lattices

The space of integrable functions with respect to a vector measure finds applications in important problems as the integral representation and the study of the optimal domain of linear operators or the representation of abstract Banach lattices as spaces of functions. Classical vector measures are defined on a ?-algebra and with values in a Banach space. However, this framework is not enough for applications to operators on spaces which do not contain the characteristic functions of sets or Banach lattices without weak unit. These cases require the vector measure to be defined on a ?-ring. In this work we are mainly interested in providing the properties which guarantee the representation of a Banach lattice by means of an space of integrable functions with respect to a vector measure on a ?-ring. The analytic properties of a vector measure are directly related to the lattice properties of the space L1. It will be also the aim of this work to study the effect of certain properties of the vector measure on the lattice structure of the space L1w. We also study the spaces Lp, Lpw for a vector measure on a ?-ring and the corresponding representation theorems by means of these spaces.

Toward a Higher-level Visual Representation

6690 руб.
With the availability of massive amounts of digital images in personal and on-line collections, e?ective techniques for navigating, indexing and searching images become more crucial. In this book, we rely on the image visual content as the main source of information to represent images. Starting from the bag of visual words (BOW) representation, a higher-level visual representation is introduced which is more discriminative and invariant to the visual diversity. It is learned using a new probabilistic topic model, Multilayer Semantic Signi?cance Analysis (MSSA) model, where each image is modeled as a mixture of visual topics depicted in the image and related to high-level topics. The large-scale extensive experimental results show that the proposed higher-level visual representation outperforms the traditional part-based visual representations in retrieval, classification and object recognition. This book is designed for professionals and researchers in the domain of image analysis, image processing and image semantic understanding. It is also suitable for graduate-level students in computer science and electrical engineering.

This thesis analyzes EU international climate policy discourses around the adoption of the Kyoto Protocol, its entry-into-force and the COP15-negotiations in Copenhagen. Using EU-press releases and employing Hajer’s argumentative approach, the main focus lies on discursive shifts and self-representation. In addition evidences of discourse institutionalization are presented. The thesis also gives an extensive insight into the theoretical underpinnings used in the analysis and provides references to the actual EU-climate-policy around and during the analyzed timeframes. The thesis finds considerable discursive shifts, including a changing role of science, global responsibility and the economy. Findings also include the self-representation of the EU changing from an emerging to an established and powerful actor but with a sharp rupture after COP15.

Set Theory for Knowledge Representation

4839 руб.
The decision problem in set theory has been intensively investigated in the last decades, and decision procedures or proofs of undecidability have been provided for several quantified and unquantified fragments of set theory. In this book we study the decision problem for three novel quantified fragments of set theory, which allow the explicit manipulation of ordered pairs. We present a decision procedure for each language of this family, and prove that all of these procedures are optimal (in the sense that they run in nondeterministic polynomial-time) when restricted to formulae with quantifier nesting bounded by a constant. The expressive power of languages of this family is then measured in terms of set-theoretical constructs they allow to express. In addition, these languages can be profitably employed in knowledge representation, since they allow to express a large amount description logic constructs.

The study has investigated the relationship between culture and language learning in Pakistan. The motivational factors (i.e. instrumental or integrative motivation) of Pakistani learners have been reviewed in relation to culture and language teaching. For this purpose, first of all, the existing culture and language teaching models and approaches have been analyzed and their application in the context of L2 in Pakistan has been assessed. Then, native and non-native literature of English has also been discussed from a cultural point of view. The study, especially, investigated the cultural representation with respect to ESL learning in Pakistan in two areas. Firstly, the representation of culture in textbooks has been studied. The textbooks, which are used in Pakistan, have been analyzed in comparison with the textbook of other countries. They have been analyzed on the basis of the source culture, the target culture and the intercultural representation. Secondly, the study investigated the effectiveness of using the native culture for L2 learning in Pakistan. For this purpose, the selected extracts were used in class, and then the data was collected through questionnaire.

The growth of modern literature was a product of the colonial transformation of South Asia. Urdu literature of 20th century reflects the social as well as family culture of India. It also help us to visualize the various aspects of the lives lived by these members of the society. My topic is concerned with the representation of women in Urdu Literature; therefore, I, aim to locate the status of women in society and literature. The main sources, secondary as well as others have been investigated to explore the real status of the women of those times and their representation in Urdu literature in the early part of the twentieth century. The Muslim culture in sub continent passed through the various vicissitudes. Many locally spun cultural strands got synthesized with the cultural modes having its origin in Arbia and Persia. Therefore, Muslim contribution effecting in the new, social synthesis in the sub-continent was undoubtedly secured.

Digital representation of curves and surface involves geometric modeling techniques that are used for efficient acquisition, reconstruction and analysis of 2D and 3D objects. Curve approximation techniques are used for modeling the digital representation of object. In computing the approximated curves, efficient data point’s approximation is a challenge mostly found in many applications of Computer Aided Geometric Design (CAGD), as the available techniques mostly uses data parametrization for curve approximation. Data parametrization involves complex computations which lead to processing overhead.

Development of advanced techniques for biological network visualization is crucial for successful progress in the areas of systems-level biology and data-intensive bioinformatics. However, current techniques for biological network visualization fall short of expectations for representing extensive biological networks. In order to provide useful network visualization tools, new approaches have to be proposed and applied alongside with those most powerful features of current visualization systems. The resulting representation techniques have to be tested by applying to large-scale examples that would include metabolic, signaling and gene expression events.

The main goal of this research is to discover the development of the representation of swords – the principal type of weapon in the Middle Ages – and to ground it on examples represented in religious paintings. Latters are treated not only as the representatives of Christian ideas, but also as witnesses to the everyday life of the time. The principal questions that author tries to answer in this research are the following: • How are the swords represented? • Does the development of the representations of swords correspond to changes in the field of weaponry of the time? • Are swords represented “repetitively” in the images and do they convey the existence of delay? • Does the development of swords depend on the subject matter of images? • What is the meaning and function of the representation of swords: sword in action versus sword as an attribute? Do they also hold emblematic, illustrative, symbolic, or any other meanings? • Does there appear to be an impact from the East or maybe a synthesis of Eastern and Western influences in the images of swords in Central Europe?

Knowledge representation and granular computing is an active area of current research for their potential application to many real life problems. Thus, it is challenging for human being in converting huge data into knowledge, and to use this knowledge to make informed decisions properly. It is very difficult to extract expert knowledge from the universe and is an active area of research in artificial intelligence. This involves analysis of how to accurately and effectively use a set of symbols to represent a set of facts within a knowledge domain. The focus of the work in this book is a combination of theoretical advancements of some of the extended models and their applications in knowledge bases. The theoretical advancements have been supported with formal proof to establish soundness whereas the applications are mostly undertaken from real life situations. The book discusses some aspects of rough sets approach in the study of knowledge discovery in databases and granular computing. An elaborate bibliography is provided at the end of the book. The material in this book includes concepts, figures, graphs, and tables to guide researchers in the area of knowledge representation.

Although this qualitative study showed promise for identifying factors contributing to the over-representation of Black students in special education, engaging in courageous conversations about race is clearly not an institutionalized practice in the schools represented in this study. However, as we consider the statistical facts, it is difficult not to think about racial inequality as a predominant factor causing today’s achievement gap. It is our responsibility, as educators, to garner the courage to disaggregate and interpret the data through a “cultural eye.” Only then can we engage in courageous conversations about race in order to improve student achievement.

Image representation (description) involves several steps until they are reconstructed for comparison. The steps are mapping, optimization, parametrization, and reconstruction. This book describes the step by step process of representing images while exploiting the exciting properties of the representation tools Spherical Harmonics (SPHARM) and Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) individually in a comparative fashion, and under one platform. The orthogonal relationship between the parameters of the listed tools extracts the image data during the parametrization phase after the mapping and optimization processes. A comparative analysis is done in the end for both the tools focusing on the compromise between image quality and compression after the reconstruction phase and are ready for comparison. The text also includes least square error graphs for each tool, which makes the comparison easier for the reader

Signs of Gender Clash Representation in Folktales

Since the dawn of history, folktales have been serving to pass didactic lessons to the audience to enlighten their mindset.However, this literary genre has started recently to lose its superficial role due to its inherent discursiveness in representing gender identity. Thus, the book in hand aims at scrutinizing the representation of gender dual dichotomy in folktales; this book is also written to provide the reader with a theoretical as well as an analytical insight on issues that concern gender as a social construct. To this very reason, a case study has been selected for exploring closely the various metaphorical aspects through which gender clash is depicted. For the critical study of this problematic theme, recourse to the feminist-based oppositional approach is suggested in this vein to fit into the requirements of our methodological analysis.

The usual method for time-frequency representation using Short Time Fourier Transform or Spectrogram does not give precise time frequency information; hence the analysis of signal using them is not much easy. The Wigner Ville Distribution (WVD) can be used for a time-frequency representation of signals with a very good resolution in time and frequency domain. WVD has many features which make them suitable for applications in transient signal detection. This book talks about different time frequency signal representations including Wigner Ville Distribution and presents some methods to reduce the cross terms in WVD. The book also describes some important applications of the variants of WVD in the world of signal processing. This book will help a student or a researcher to learn about time frequency representations and to understand how to use them in a variety of applications.

Images of the West in the Moroccan Contemporary Novel

3249 руб.
Cultural representation has been a hot commodity in academia since the advent of postcolonial and cultural studies. This book investigates the various images of the West(s) in the Moroccan contemporary novel. The study shows that the representation of the West was oftentimes paradoxical and ambivalent; it was neither entirely homogeneous nor fixed because it largely succumbed to the mutable sociopolitical and historical contexts determining the West-East/Morocco relations. More importantly, the writer's personal experiences and ideological backgrounds are determining factors in shaping the image of the West. The close reading of five Moroccan novels in this book demonstrates the heterogeneity of conceptions vis-a-vis cultural Otherness.

Revision with unchanged content. This book provides a comprehensive introduction on the rainfall character­istics in a tropical area, Indonesia, on a time scale monthly to interannual. Unlike the monsoonal South Asia and East Asia, the Southeast Asian mon­soon, especially over Indonesia is still not well understood. Chapters of this book stand for basic pillars in the rainfall characteristics in Indonesia; from the representation of rainfall from observation, representation of rainfall in the global model or reanalyses, representation of rainfall in the regional cli­mate model, the introduction of the ocean climate in Indonesia related to the rainfall and the coupled ocean atmosphere aspects of the Indonesian rainfall. This book covers basic annual patterns and their regionalizations as well as ocean atmosphere mechanisms that drive them and how those annual pat­terns interplay to regional phenomena such as ENSO. The objective of this book is to describe how well the performance of multi level climate models over the tropics, especially in the representation of Indonesian rainfall. The reader of this book shall be the climatologist, atmospheric science, oceano­grapher and hydrologist who are interested in the climate and air sea inter­actions of the tropics.
