        MAMMALS OF AUSTRALIA (VOL. 1) (AUTHENTIC FACSIMILE EDITION) Wombats, Koalas, Possums, Echidnas, Platypus

      Hill House. New;. 1999. Hardcover. 0947352368 . 60 Plates. BRAND NEW! This is not a mere reproduction. This is an exact facsimile of an original held in the Libraries of the British Museum (Natural History) in London and Tring. It is not a reproduction, because no camera was used in transferring the images from the originals. The paper used is 130 gsm mat art paper. This facsimile carries faithfully every spot, mark or stain as the original. It also carries the original Museum Department of Zoology stamps, and librarian's annotations. The color printing is so accurate that, from behind glass, the naked eye would be unable to distinguish the original from the facsimile. This facsimile is exactly the same size as the original (Imperial Folio: 22" x 15"). It is cased-in and bound between 4 mm. The boards are covered in special Japanese Saifu cloth, gold stamped on the spine, and with the gold Crown Cipher of the British Museum (Natural History) on the front, and blind embossed on the inner margin of the front boards. The end-papers are of special wood-free heavy grade paper, printed in a generated repetitive pattern of the Museum's Library stamps. The publisher has not intruded into the authenticity of the book, leaving the publication data printed only on the very last page at the end of the book block. This book is individually numbered on the inside front board, hand wrapped in protective brown paper, and placed in its own crush-proof outer carton. The carton is then sealed, numbered and signed on the outside by the printer's quality control officer. ; Vol. 1 .

        The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon

      (NY): Scribner. (1999). A novel in which a lost girl channels the strengths (at the time) of Boston Red Sox relief pitcher Tom Gordon for comfort. Signed by King. With the bookplate of horror writer Stanley Wiater on the front pastedown; fine in a fine dust jacket. One of King's scarcest trade editions to find signed, presumably because of the difficult logistics of handling a Stephen King book signing in recent years, due to his extreme popularity. This copy was a gift to attendees at a dinner celebrating King's 25th anniversary as a published writer, which Wiater attended with his wife. A limited edition of this title was published several years later, and a pop-up edition of it was done as well. But signed copies of the trade first edition are exceedingly scarce. First Edition. Hardcover.

Seit Jahren nicht mehr im Buchhandel erhältlich, werden Zarlengas Thesen im Internet, von Politikern und von Geldmanagern heiß diskutiert.

Hier ist sie, die kritische Geschichte des Geldes und der Währungen, die sowohl auf begeisterte Zustimmung als auch auf skeptische Ablehnung stösst. Die oft überraschenden Thesen Zarlengas belegen, dass die säkulare Macht in einer Gemeinschaft vor allem von ihrem Geld- und Bankensystem ausgeübt wird - und keineswegs, wie wir naiverweise anzunehmen gewillt sind, von Regierungen und Volksvertretern.

Zarlenga arbeitete viele Jahre in Europa und ist mit der Geschichte des Euros vertraut.

        Applied Pattern Recognition: A Practical Introduction to Image and Speech Processing in C++ von Joachim Hornegger (Autor), Dietrich W. R. Paulus Algorithms and Implementation in C++ Advanced Studies of Computer Science

      Wiesbaden: Vieweg+Teubner Verlag Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden, 1999. Auflage: 2nd ed. 1998. Corr. 2nd printing 1999 (28. Oktober 1999). Softcover. Good. 21,1 x 14,8 x 2,3 cm. Ein ganz großer Vorteil dieses Buches ist, dass die Thematik nicht nur auf einer abstrakten Ebene beschrieben wird, sondern dass im Buch immer wieder die Umsetzung der Aussagen in C++ gezeigt wird. neben einer Einführung in C++ werden die Algorithmen und Techniken immer wieder auch als Programm vorgestellt. Dadurch wird der Schritt von der Theorie - das heißt, dem als mathematische Formel beschriebenen Algorithmus - hin zur Praxis (dem Computerprogramm) durchgängig." Elektronik This book demonstrates the efficiency of the C++ programming language in the realm of pattern recognition and pattern analysis. For this 3rd edition, new features of the C++ language were integrated and their relevance for image and speech processing is discussed. The description of the STL library was extended and STL is now used in many places in the book. The chapters 23 and 24 can now be used to build complete systems and give hints for further extensions.The book is divided into 4 parts. After an introduction to programming and software engineering, the required basics of image and speech processing are given. Statistics and mathematics is explained as required. The second part treats C++ as an object-oriented language and introduces it thru examples. In the third part the examples of the first and second part are combined to form an image segmentation and a word recognition system. All relevant features of the C++ language are thus introduced with direct relation to the tasks in image and speech processing. "Die Behandlung der C++-Konstukte ist wirklich anwendungsnah." Prof. Dr. Michael Schenke, FH Merseburg "/.../ sehr umfassend - anschaulich, klar, gut nachvollziehbar." Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hans Peter Kölzer, HAW Hamburg "Dieses Buch werde ich meinen Studenten empfehlen, weil es einen sehr anschaulichen und motivierenden Einstieg in die Mustererkennung bietet." Prof. Dr. Hans-Peter Weber, FH Darmstadt Concerning 3rd edition: "This book is a beautifully arranged marriage of state-of-the-art pattern recognition theory and of programming theory and practice. The elegant and thorough treatment of modern aspects of speech and video processing and interpretation springs to life through a multitude of well-designed case studies and concrete examples." Carlo Tomasi, Prof. of Computer Science, Duke University, USA "This book is a must for learners of practical image processing. The examples are well explained and cover the needs of a graduate image processing or pattern recognition course." Laszlo Csink, Prof. of Computer Science, Budapest Polytechnic John von Neumann Faculty of Informatics, Hungary "I am not aware of a book comparable to this one which gives an excellent combination of an account of relevant topics in pattern recognition as well as of techniques for implementing the equations and algorithms in C++. Therefore, the book is invaluable both to students starting in the field and and to practitioners needing a special algorithm and its implementation." H. Niemann, Prof. of Computer Science, Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany "/.../ this book has been the perfect source for my students and me. Not only that the reader is elegantly and in a straightforward manner guided to the central points of the theory, but in parallel the authors also make it transparent how to implement the algorithms resulting from the theory."

      Birkhauser (Architectural), 1999. 1999. Hardcover. Good. 31 x 24,4 x 3,3 cm. The style of Peter Zumthor's work has some affinities with what is often called Swiss minimalism. Zumthor believes "the language of architecture is not a question of a specific style. Every building is built for a specific use in a specific place for a specific society. My buildings try to answer the questions that emerge from these simple facts as precisely and critically as they can."

        Fifty Years of Portaits (Two Page Autograph Treatment)

      Santa Fe: Arena Editions, 1999. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Fine. This is a signed first edition, first printing of \"Peter Beard: Fifty Years of Portraits by Peter Beard\" published by Arena Editions, Santa Fe, in 1999. The book was published on the occasion of the 1999 exhibition Peter Beard: Fifty Years of Portraits curated by Peter T. Tunney, at the Fahey/Klein Gallery, Los Angeles and is a highly sought-after monograph of Beard\'s work. The publisher\'s comments provide a wonderful insight into the book: \"Throughout his remarkable life, photographer, naturalist, and raconteur Peter Beard has befriended and photographed some of the most prominent figures of our times. Portraiture is woven into the fabric of all of Beard\'s work, yet to date this relationship has never been carved out and explored. From his earliest attempts at expression as a child to the mania for travel and adventure that overtook Beard as a young man, and onward to Beard\'s most recent work on assignment, portraiture is a central thread of Beard\'s career. Beard\'s \"portraits,\" however, rarely conform to the traditional format of this genre. Instead, they embody spontaneity, the moments shared with intimate friends, and the adventurous lives and experiences to which he has long been attracted. A vital chronicler of our times, he has created memorable images of such icons as Picasso, Francis Bacon, Karen Blixen, Andy Warhol, Truman Capote, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Salvador Dali, and Mick Jagger, along with the last great safari hunters, such as J.A. Hunter, Phillip Percival, and Cape-to-Cairo Grogan\". Profusely illustrated with numerous photographs, photomontages and collages with hand-written texts, photographs, painting and drawings by Peter Beard, the book measures approximately 10.5 x 8.5 inches and is 206 pages. The book is bound in brown leatherette covered boards with a tipped-in plate on the front cover and debossed title. Both the book and covers are in FINE condition. What makes this book even more special is the two page autograph treatment by Peter Beard. In addition to his full signature in red to match the title page color, he has added the date 2000 ad and included his footprint and red ink splashes to create a unique personalized signature treatment.

        Large Mass Hierarchy from a Small Extra Dimension" in Physical Review Letters 83 Issue 17, 25 October 1999, pp. 3370 - 3373 and "An Alternative to Compactification" in Physical Review Letters 83 Issue 23, 6 December 1999, pp. 4690-4693

      - FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF TWO OF THE MOST CITED PAPERS IN THE HISTORY OF PHYSICS. In these papers, Randall and Sundrum show that infinite extra dimension and weakness of gravity can be explained with an extra dimension. "String theory extra dimensions have traditionally been considered to be small and unobservable. Randall and Sundrum introduced an alternative in these two papers in which one of the additional dimensions is "warped." In their approach, the strong, weak, and electromagnetic forces are confined to three dimensions (on a 3-brane, a three-dimensional "membrane," at a specific location in the other dimensions), but gravity propagates in the warped space as well. Their work differs from most of the rest of string theory in that they predict quantum effects due to gravity that may soon be testable by the LHC. To parse the theoretical disunification of physics in disparate gravitational force-strength Lisa Randall and Raman Sundrum posited the existence of extra-dimensional brane-layers actively leaking energy fluctuations into our own universe; with mathematical supports, Randall and Sundrum illustrated their idea's compatibility with existing cosmological valuations and astrophysical data. Lisa Randall was the first tenured woman in physics at Princeton, as well as the first tenured theorist at Harvard and MIT. Additionally, she is the most cited theoretical physicist in the world. CONDITION & DETAILS: Maryland: The American Physical Society. Physical Review Letters 83 Issue 17 pp. 3370 - 3373, 25 October 1999 and Physical Review Letters 83 Issue 23, pp. 4690-4693, 6 December 1999. Quarto (11.25 x 8.25 inches; 281 x 206mm).
