This open access book was prepared as a Final Publication of the COST Action IC1406 "High-Performance Modelling and Simulation for Big Data Applications (cHiPSet)" project. Long considered important pillars of the scientific method, Modelling and Simulation have evolved from traditional discrete numerical methods to complex data-intensive continuous analytical optimisations. Resolution, scale, and accuracy have become essential to predict and analyse natural and complex systems in science and engineering. When their level of abstraction raises to have a better discernment of the domain at hand, their representation gets increasingly demanding for computational and data resources. On the other hand, High Performance Computing typically entails the effective use of parallel and distributed processing units coupled with efficient storage, communication and visualisation systems to underpin complex data-intensive applications in distinct scientific and technical domains. It is then ...

Postcolonialism Cross-Examined: Multidirectional Perspectives on Imperial and Colonial Pasts and the Neocolonial Present (Routledge Philosophers in ... by Monika Albrecht (Routledge) 4.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 6 hours ago

Taking a strikingly interdisciplinary and global approach, Postcolonialism Cross-Examined reflects on the current status of postcolonial studies and attempts to break through traditional boundaries, creating a truly comparative and genuinely global phenomenon. Drawing together the field of mainstream postcolonial studies with post-Soviet postcolonial studies and studies of the late Ottoman Empire, the contributors in this volume question many of the concepts and assumptions we have become accustomed to in postcolonial studies, creating a fresh new version of the field. The volume calls the merits of the field into question, investigating how postcolonial studies may have perpetuated and normalized colonialism as an issue exclusive to Western colonial and imperial powers. The volume is the first to open a dialogue between three different areas of postcolonial scholarship that previously developed independently from one another: ? the wide field of postcolonial studies working on ...

Deerbrook portrays the failed love affair between Edward Hope, a local physician and Margaret Ibbotson, his sister-in-law. Married to Hester Ibbotson, Edward's life becomes a series of misfortune, first with his stifling marriage and second due to a vile rumour that he had robbed a grave! Excerpt: "Every town-bred person who travels in a rich country region, knows what it is to see a neat white house planted in a pretty situation, -- in a shrubbery, or commanding a sunny common, or nestling between two hills, -- and to say to himself, as the carriage sweeps past its gate, "I should like to live there," -- "I could be very happy in that pretty place." Transient visions pass before his mind's eye of dewy summer mornings, when the shadows are long on the grass, and of bright autumn afternoons, when it would be luxury to saunter in the neighbouring lanes; and of frosty winter days, when the sun shines in over the laurustinus at the window, while the fire burns with a different light from ...

Automated Machine Learning: Methods, Systems, Challenges (The Springer Series on Challenges in Machine Learning) by Frank Hutter (Springer) 4.5 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 6 hours ago

This open access book presents the first comprehensive overview of general methods in Automated Machine Learning (AutoML), collects descriptions of existing systems based on these methods, and discusses the first series of international challenges of AutoML systems. The recent success of commercial ML applications and the rapid growth of the field has created a high demand for off-the-shelf ML methods that can be used easily and without expert knowledge. However, many of the recent machine learning successes crucially rely on human experts, who manually select appropriate ML architectures (deep learning architectures or more traditional ML workflows) and their hyperparameters. To overcome this problem, the field of AutoML targets a progressive automation of machine learning, based on principles from optimization and machine learning itself. This book serves as a point of entry into this quickly-developing field for researchers and advanced students alike, as well as providing a ...

Emile by Jean-Jacques Rousseau (E-BOOKARAMA) 4.0 Stars (61 Reviews)    Price verified 6 hours ago

"Emile" (AKA "On Education") is a treatise on the nature of education as well as the nature of man. "Emile" was written by Jean-Jacques Rousseau and first published in 1762. Rousseau considered this book to be the best and most important of anything he had written. The book was banned in Paris and Geneva, and publicly burned in the year of its release. This was due to a particular section of the book called, "Profession of Faith of the Savoyard Vicar." During this rather well-received chapter, Rousseau insists that God and religion should be discovered freely, and should not be preached to small children. This infuriated the eighteenth-century church and clergymen, who considered and questioning or critique of their religion as a direct threat. The irony of this is that Rousseau famously considered himself a devout Christian for his entire life, unlike so many of his fellow contemporary philosophers, many of whom were secular or even atheists.

Men, Women & Manners in Colonial Times by Sydney George Fisher (Skyhorse) 4.2 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 6 hours ago

“In travelling from Massachusetts to the Carolinas one passed through communities of such distinct individuality that they were almost like different nations," writes author Sidney George Fisher in his preface to Men, Women & Manners in Colonial Times, in which he presented the history and culture of colonial America to his Gilded Age contemporaries, who he felt had lost an appreciation of the fascinating circumstances that created the Founding Fathers and the Revolution. In the almost two hundred years of colonial life preceding the Revolution, the colonies displayed a remarkable variety, from their religion, politics, and countries of origin, to their dress, lifestyles, and character. Fisher cites primary documents such as colonial newspapers and the diaries of common men and women as well as famous political figures. He addresses the credibility of legends of our forefathers still told today (George Washington “was an extremely sociable man, and he could not have lived in ...

Similarly to Sappho (5th Century BC), Nukenova allows everyone access into a woman's world, wherein seductive complexities of thought becomes manifest through wit and rhetoric. Admittedly, her images are often sharp-carefully elaborated for their own jovial sake.

Macroeconomics, Agriculture, and Food Security: A Guide to Policy Analysis in Developing Countries by Eugenio Díaz-Bonilla (International Food Policy Research Institute) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified one day ago

Why write a book on macroeconomic policies and their links to agriculture and food security in developing countries? The food price spikes of the years just prior to 2010 and the economic, political, and social dislocations they generated refocused the attention of policymakers and development practitioners on the agricultural sector and food security concerns. But even without those traumatic events, the importance of agriculture for developing countries -- and for an adequate functioning of the world economy -- cannot be denied. First, although declining over time, primary agriculture still represents important percentages of developing countries' overall domestic production, exports, and employment. If agroindustrial, transportation, commercial, and other related activities are also counted, then the economic and social importance of agriculture-based sectors increases significantly. Furthermore, large numbers of the world's poor still live in rural areas and work in agriculture. ...

The Changing Economic Geography of Globalization (Routledge Studies in Global Competition Book 27) by Giovanna Vertova (Routledge) 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified one day ago

The process of globalization has had profound, often destabilizing, effects on space, at all levels (i.e. local, regional, national, international). This revealing book analyzes, both theoretically and empirically, the effects of globalization over space. It considers, through a dialogue among different paradigms, the ways in which space has become more important in the global economy. Globalization has been advocated as a way of shrinking time and space which will lead to a homogenized global market; a suggestion challenged in differing ways and with a variety of approaches by all the contributors to this volume. Leading authorities from a range of disciplines are represented amongst this impressive list of contributors, including Eric Sheppard, Bjørn Asheim, Richard Walker and Peter Swann. The chapters demonstrate persuasively the continuing, and even increasing, role of space in the global economy, and throughout, the book covers viewpoints from the fields of: • ...

Faith in Life: John Dewey's Early Philosophy (American Philosophy) by Donald J. Morse (Fordham University Press) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified one day ago

This is the first book to consider John Dewey's early philosophy on its own terms and to explicate its key ideas. It does so through the fullest treatment to date of his youthful masterwork, the Psychology. This fuller treatment reveals that the received view, which sees Dewey's early philosophy as unimportant in its own right, is deeply mistaken. In fact, Dewey's early philosophy amounts to an important new form of idealism. More specifically, Dewey's idealism contains a new logic of rupture, which allows us to achieve four things: ? A focus on discontinuity that challenges all naturalistic views, including Dewey's own later view; ? A space of critical resistance to events that is at the same time the source of ideals; ? A faith in the development of ideals that challenges pessimists like Schopenhauer and Nietzsche; and ? A non-traditional reading of Hegel that invites comparison with cutting-edge Continental philosophers, such as Adorno, Derrida, and Zizek, and even goes ...
