Significance of Yavneh & Other Essays in Jewish Hellenism
This volume collects thirty essays by Shaye J.D. Cohen. First published between 1980 and 2006, these essays deal with a wide variety of themes and texts: Jewish Hellenism; Josephus; the Synagogue; Conversion to Judaism; Blood and Impurity; the boundary between Judaism and Christianity. What unites them is their philological orientation. Many of these essays are close studies of obscure passages in Jewish and Christian texts.
The essays are united too by their common assumption that the ancient world was a single cultural continuum; that ancient Judaism, in all its expressions and varieties, was a Hellenism; and that texts written in Hebrew share a world of discourse with those written in Greek. Many of these essays are well-known and have been much discussed in contemporary scholarship. Among these are: "The Significance of Yavneh" (the title essay), "Patriarchs and Scholarchs," "Masada: Literary Tradition, Archaeological Remains, and the Credibility of Josephus," "Epigraphical Rabbis," "The Conversion of Antoninus," "Menstruants and the Sacred in Judaism and Christianity," and "A Brief History of Jewish Circumcision Blood."

This book provides an overview of emerging new approaches to video search and mining based on promising methods being developed in the computer vision and image analysis community. The objective of this book is to present the latest advances in video search and mining covering both theoretical approaches and practical applications.

“Video Search and Mining” ed. by Dan Schonfeld, Caifeng Shan, Dacheng Tao, and LiangWang
Video search and mining is a rapidly evolving discipline whose aim is to capture interesting patterns in video data. It has become one of the core areas in the data mining research community. In comparison to other types of data mining (e.g. text), video mining is still in its infancy.
The book provides researchers and practitioners a comprehensive understanding of the start-of-the-art in video search and mining techniques and a resource for potential applications and successful practice.
This book can also serve as an important reference tool and handbook for researchers and practitioners in video search and mining.

Multiple Comparison Procedures

FREEDownload : Multiple Comparison Procedures

Multiple Comparison Procedures by Yosef Hochberg, Ajit C. Tamhane
English | 1987-09 | ISBN: 0471822221 | 480 pages | PDF | 7,8 MB

Multiple Comparison Procedures
Offering a balanced, up-to-date view of multiple comparison procedures, this book refutes the belief held by some statisticians that such procedures have no place in data analysis.
With equal emphasis on theory and applications, it establishes the advantages of multiple comparison techniques in reducing error rates and in ensuring the validity of statistical inferences. Provides detailed descriptions of the derivation and implementation of a variety of procedures, paying particular attention to classical approaches and confidence estimation procedures. Also discusses the benefits and drawbacks of other methods. Numerous examples and tables for implementing procedures are included, making this work both practical and informative.

Radar Cross Section (Scitech Radar and Defense) by Michael T. Tuley
English | Dec 2, 2004 | ISBN: 1891121251 | 477 Pages | PDF | 19 MB
Radar cross section (RCS) is a comparison of two radar signal strengths. One is the strength of the radar beam sweeping over a target, the other is the strength of the reflected echo sensed by the receiver. This book shows how the RCS gauge can be predicted for theoretical objects and how it can be measured for real targets.

Global Positioning: Technologies and Performance
English | Telecommunication | 14. March 2008 | ISBN-10: 0471793760 | 419 pages | pdf | 7.2 mb
From stars to terrestrial networks and satellites From outdoors to indoors From ancient to future applications From techniques to technologies

Global Positioning: Technologies and Performance
The field of radionavigation signals and systems has seen significant growth in recent years. Satellite systems are very efficient, but owing to their limited exposure and/or availability in some environments, they do not cover the whole spectrum of applications. Thus, many other positioning techniques are being developed. Now, Global Positioning presents an overview of the strengths and weaknesses of various systems with a specific emphasis on those that are satellite-based. Beginning with a description of the evolution of positioning systems, the book provides detailed coverage of the three main Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) constellations, discusses how to cope with indoor positioning, defines development activities and commercial positioning, and proposes a vision for the future of the field. Special features of the book include: Exercises to test and challenge the reader's understanding Direct comparison between constellations and other positioning systems Mathematical content kept to a minimum in order to maximize accessibility and readability Descriptions of European and U.S. discussions for Galileo Historical aspects and links between the distant past and current systems Footnotes that provide hints and comments to the reader At a time when the positioning domain is experiencing such immense transformation, it is vital to have a solid understanding of the fundamental principles, current tech-nologies, and future improvements that will help estimate the performance and limita-tions of existing systems. Global Positioning fills an important need for professionals and students in a variety of fields who want a complete and authoritative overview of global positioning techniques.
