Starring Brian Blessed and Rory Bremner, 1001 Arabian Nights is the first tale from The Opus Pocus: a series of symphonies transformed into funny, action-packed, musical audiobooks and accompanying comic books, helping children to discover the magic of classical music, starting with Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov´s dazzling composition, Scheherazade. Here is the first chapter of the first story from The Opus Pocus: 1001 Arabian Nights or The Princess, the Pirate and the Baboon! It´s a hairy tale of a princess, a sultan, a genie, and a shipwreck, and an unlucky pirate who keeps getting turned into a baboon! Also included is the orchestral music, providing children with an introduction to the first movement of Rimsky-Korsakov´s magical symphonic work. 1001 Arabian Nights stars Brian Blessed as the Great Sultan Shakriar, Rory Bremner as Sinbad the Hairy Pirate, with Jess Murphy as Princess Sheherazade and Sam Morris as the narrator, Grandma Dingley. Other pirates, wizards, and various characters were performed by Nigel Garton, backed by an orchestra conducted by Greg Arrowsmith with a violin solo by Sarah Sexton, mastered by Andrew Smillie. It was written and directed by Matt Parry, with cover illustration by Faye Simms and design by Mandy Norman. Funded by a Kickstarter campaign and winning the national Intuit StartUp Britain competition, The Opus Pocus needs your help to bring classical music to thousands - millions - of children worldwide!

Operations Research: An Introduction, Global Ed...
32,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

For junior/senior undergraduate and first-year graduate courses in Operations Research in departments of Industrial Engineering, Business Administration, Statistics, Computer Science, and Mathematics. Operations Research provides a broad focus on algorithmic and practical implementation of Operations Research (OR) techniques, using theory, applications, and computations to teach students OR basics. The book can be used conveniently in a survey course that encompasses all the major tools of operations research, or in two separate courses on deterministic and probabilistic decision-making. With the Tenth Edition, the author preserves classical algorithms by providing essential hand computational algorithms as an important part of OR history. Based on input and submissions from OR students, professors, and practitioners, the author also includes scenarios that show how classical algorithms can be beneficial in practice. These entries are included as Aha! Moments with each dealing with stories, anecdotes, and issues in OR theory, applications, computations, and teaching methodology that can advance the understanding of fundamental OR concepts. The Companion Website for Operations Research, 10/e (www.pearsonhighered.com/taha) provides valuable resources for both students and instructors. Resources include case studies that require students to employ OR tools from multiple chapters, Excel, TORA, and AMPL files as well as additional chapters and appendixes.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

This practical resource, a volume in the new Differential Diagnoses in Surgical Pathology series, is arranged by differential diagnoses, filling a niche in urologic pathology resources and providing a practical guide to making the correct diagnosis between commonly confused entities. This innovative book covers over 175 differential diagnoses, ranging from the most common in surgical urologic pathology to select disorders that are less frequently seen. In every chapter, lesions are presented side by side for easy comparison, with clinical and pathological findings in short outline format followed by several full color images. In addition to illustrating and discussing the classical features of these entities, the authors emphasize atypical features that can complicate diagnoses. Key Features´´ * Side-by-side comparisons for each major differential diagnoses for quick and accurate reference * Over 1,450 color photographs that depict the features of each entity and cover all major differential diagnoses in genitourinary pathology * A practical guide that directs all text and photographs toward differentiating between entities to ensure the pathologist arrives at an accurate diagnosis * A companion website with fully-searchable text and an image bank

Rationality: From AI to Zombies , Hörbuch, Digi...
9,95 € *

What does it actually mean to be rational? Not Hollywood-style ´´rational´´, where you forsake all human feeling to embrace Cold Hard Logic. Real rationality, of the sort studied by psychologists, social scientists, and mathematicians. The kind of rationality where you make good decisions, even when it´s hard; where you reason well, even in the face of massive uncertainty; where you recognize and make full use of your fuzzy intuitions and emotions, rather than trying to discard them. In Rationality: From AI to Zombies, Eliezer Yudkowsky explains the science underlying human irrationality with a mix of fables, argumentative essays, and personal vignettes. These eye-opening accounts of how the mind works (and how, all too often, it doesn´t!) are then put to the test through some genuinely difficult puzzles: computer scientists´ debates about the future of artificial intelligence (AI), physicists´ debates about the relationship between the quantum and classical worlds, philosophers´ debates about the metaphysics of zombies and the nature of morality, and many more. In the process, Rationality: From AI to Zombies delves into the human significance of correct reasoning more deeply than you´ll find in any conventional textbook on cognitive science or philosophy of mind. A decision theorist and researcher at the Machine Intelligence Research Institute, Yudkowsky published earlier drafts of his writings to the websites Overcoming Bias and Less Wrong. Rationality: From AI to Zombies compiles six volumes of Yudkowsky´s essays into a single audiobook. Collectively, these sequences of linked essays serve as a rich and lively introduction to the science - and the art - of human rationality. 1. Language: English. Narrator: George Thomas, Robert DeRoeck, Aaron Silverbook. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/099524/bk_acx0_099524_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

An introduction to vehicle dynamics and the fundamentals of mathematical modeling Fundamentals of Vehicle Dynamics and Modeling is a student-focused textbook providing an introduction to vehicle dynamics, and covers the fundamentals of vehicle model development. It illustrates the process for construction of a mathematical model through the application of the equations of motion. The text describes techniques for solution of the model, and demonstrates how to conduct an analysis and interpret the results. A significant portion of the book is devoted to the classical linear dynamic models, and provides a foundation for understanding and predicting vehicle behaviour as a consequence of the design parameters. Modeling the pneumatic tire is also covered, along with methods for solving the suspension kinematics problem, and prediction of acceleration and braking performance. The book introduces the concept of multibody dynamics as applied to vehicles and provides insight into how large and high fidelity models can be constructed. It includes the development of a method suitable for computer implementation, which can automatically generate and solve the linear equations of motion for large complex models. Key features: * Accompanied by a website hosting MATLAB® code. * Supported by the Global Education Delivery channels. Fundamentals of Vehicle Dynamics and Modeling is an ideal textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate courses on vehicle dynamics.
