|9780521782326 Theory of Financial Risks Cambridge Academ |
This book summarizes recent theoretical developments inspired by statistical physics in the description of the potential moves in financial markets, and its application to derivative pricing and risk control. The possibility of accessing and processing huge quantities of data on financial markets opens the path to new methodologies where systematic comparison between theories and real data not only becomes possible, but mandatory. This book takes a physicist's point of view to financial risk by comparing theory with experiment. Starting with important results in probability theory, the authors discuss the statistical analysis of real data, the empirical determination of statistical laws, the definition of risk, the theory of optimal portfolio, and the problem of derivatives (forward contracts, options). This book will be of interest to physicists interested in finance, quantitative analysts in financial institutions, risk managers and graduate students in mathematical finance.

|9780810934801 Wegman William wegman polaroids Abrams |
For almost 25 years, William Wegman has been producing photographs with the 20 x 24" Polaroid camera. This body of work began in 1979, when Wegman - already well known in the art world for his wry video and conceptual photographic work - was invited by Polaroid to try out this unusual camera. When Wegman and his dog, Man Ray, travelled to Boston to use the camera for the first time, a remarkable collaboration was launched. After Man Ray died in 1982, Wegman continued his exploration of the medium with non-canine subjects. In the late 1980s, he began to work with the dog Fay Ray and an expanding universe of her progeny. William Wegman captures his canine subjects in a variety of poses and guises. This volume gathers together a collection of his work and includes a candid essay by the artist exploring his experiences with the large-format camera and his models.

|9780300089943 Andy Warhol Yale University Press |
Thirteen years after his death, Andy Warhol's art is more dominant and omnipresent than ever before. In particular, his serial works - the Campbell's Soup Can, Jackie, Marilyn, Mao, and others - have been reproduced everywhere and have profoundly influenced our perception and thinking about mass culture. This striking book is a highly original survey of Warhol's entire creative output. The book begins with an overview of Warhol's work by Ernst Beyeler and Georg Frei that ranges over the Campbell's Soup Can pictures, Warhol's first attempt at using a succession of images based on the same motif in various paintings; the early silk screen prints (portraits of such teenage idols as Elvis Presley, Warren Beatty, and Natalie Wood); the Disaster pictures, which reveal the dark side of American consumer positivism; and the later works, including the Last Supper in which Warhol celebrates his own immortality. Peter Gidal then discusses two of Warhol's single works, the monumental Saturday's Disaster and the thirty-minute film Blow Job. And Edward Sanders examines some of Warhol's images in the context of his life and times. Together the text and copious illustrations are a magnificent test

Francis Xavier Meehan (Meehan to his friends, 'Halt!' to the cops) has ten thousand rules to live by, but only one way to make a living: stealing. Then a man in a checked jacket from Washington comes to meet Meehan in the Manhattan Correctional Center with an offer Meehan cannot refuse. For somewhere out there is an October Surprise that may dethrone the sitting president of the United States. The Washington man wants Meehan to steal the incriminating evidence and keep the president's secret in the dark. What Meehan gets out of the deal is his freedom - and maybe a little something on the side. What the president gets is another term in the White House - instead of jail. Yet on the plane ride down to meet more guys from Washington (but with better suits), the well-thought-out-plan begins to unravel. The problem Meehan faces is that no one in Washington can keep a lip buttoned - and a bunch of politicos, spies and thugs are leaking trouble this way. Suddenly it seems that Meehan's miion is about to go the way of Watergate. There's only one difference: This time they chose the right guy for the job. Hail to the thief!

|9781840005417 S .& C. Hube How to Compare and Value Samplers Mitchell & Beazley |
Schoolgirl samplers and pictorial needlework are among the most sought-after textile collectables. This informative and colourful volume serves as a guide to developing an appraiser's eye and a connoisseur's knowledge. The authors share the secrets of professional appraisers as they show how to assess value in a sampler using a compare-and-contrast format. Apparently similar pieces are analyzed side-by-side to determine why one is more valuable than the other, or why one is a treasure and the other, not quite. On each spread, full colour photographs of two samplers, related in motif and point of origin, appear on facing pages, surrounded by call-outs highlighting each sampler's value features - those key factors, such as design, execution, material, and condition that account for the item's relative market value. Introductory text and captions provide essential historical and technical information on the featured samplers, while sidebars provide close-up details or additional information on the design, creation, and evolution of sampler art. The 60 sampler comparisons that make up the core of the book cover the entire range of the subject on both sides of the Atlantic from the 17th through to the 19th-centuries. This main section is preceded by an overview of the history of samplers and a gallery of sampler masterworks in addition to sections on buying, caring for, and displaying samplers, a comprehensive bibliography, and a resource list.

This text showcases superlative architecture in some of the most stunning and remote areas of the South American coastline. A number of renowned Latin American architects have chosen the continent's breathtakingly diverse coastline as a backdrop for their work, and their canvases range from the stark, arid locations to lusciously tropical settings. Within these beautiful landscapes each project displays the architect's ability to strike a balance between nature and dwelling place, as well as their innate sense of what makes South American beach houses culturally unique. Many houses offer a new slant on an age-old culture, or are deeply influenced by their natural surrounds. There are simple, practical homes for families and friends and lavish seaside weekenders, all of which share one thing in common - as beach houses they are also a sanctuary in which to relax and unwind.
|9788874390014 Conru K The art of southeast africa Abrams |
The art of southern and eastern Africa, unlike the better-known traditions of central and western Africa, is often overlooked. The complex history of the region, marked by migrations rather than settled kingdoms, and the very nature of the objects produced, seen as craft artefacts by western eyes, are the main reasons for this relative obscurity. The objects illustrated and catalogued in the book include rare figural sculptures, jewellery, regalia, prestige staffs carved with ornamental heads and decorations, walking/fighting sticks, headrests, snuff containers and the occasional ornamental but useful adornments which double as combs and snuff spoons. The source of distinctiveness for the artefacts of the southern African region lies in the pastoral and specifically nomadic nature of the cattle culture shared by the majority of the peoples in the region. The functional beauty of the objects and their small size are linked to the necessary ease to take them along as the need to move arose.

|9781850704621 Ward Atlas Of Infective Endocarditis Informa |
Infective endocarditis has a mortality of 25-30 per cent despite advances in treatment. This could be significantly reduced by prompt diagnosis, accurate assessment and rapid institution of appropriate treatment. This is especially true of prosthetic valve endocarditis. Because symptoms are often non-specific, diagnosis is delayed for up to several weeks, sometimes with disastrous consequences. Diagnosis and assessment involve much more than simply identifying an infecting organism. It requires knowledge of valve(s) affected and of the extent of valvular damage - complications such as abscess formation, emboli and cardiac failure have to be evaluated. Without this information, the timing of correct treatment is impossible.

|9780099453987 Palahniuk Ch Diary Random House |
Diary takes the form of a 'coma diary' kept by one Misty Tracy Wilmot as her husband lies senseless in hospital after a suicide attempt. Once she was an art student dreaming of creativity and freedom; now, after marrying Peter at art school and being brought back to once quaint, now tourist-overrun Waytansea Island, she's been reduced to the condition of a resort hotel maid. Peter, it turns out, has been hiding rooms in houses he's refurbished and scrawling vile messages all over the walls. Angry homeowners are suing, and Misty's dreams of artistic greatness are in ashes. But then, as if possessed by the spirit of Maura Kinkaid, a fabled Waytansea artist of the nineteenth century, Misty begins painting again, compulsively. The canvases are taken away by her mother-in-law and her doctor, who seem to have a plan for Misty - and for all those annoying tourists...

With scalpels, calipers and the other instruments of his science, Cley can divine good and evil, determine character and intelligence, uncover dark secrets, and foretell a person's destiny. But now the Master has sent the great physiognomist out of the City on a seemingly trivial assignment in the rural hinterland where, removed from Below's omnipresent scrutiny, even the most loyal servant of logic can fall prey to seductions of the flesh and spirit. And in this unfamiliar place, possessing terrors uniquely its own, await stark revelations that could shatter Cley's perceptions of himself, his profession, and his ordered world.

|9780099476658 Geoffrey Arc Dark Angel Random House |
A new thriller from the bestselling author of Fire Hawk, The Lucifer Network, and The Burma Legacy. Tom Sedley's idyllic summer vacation in a leafy post war suburb of north London came to an abrupt and shocking end on the 14th September, 1948 when his sister was brutally murdered in woodland near his house. A tramp was arrested for the crime but for the young boy it was the end of childhood and the beginning of a lifelong search to discover what had actually happened that late summer day. Marcus Warwick was Tom's neighbour and best friend but the murder changed their relationship forever: suspicion clouded Tom's mind and they drifted apart. Unknown to each other they were both sent to Korea two years later, Warwick an officer, Sedley as a humble radio man: and when they met in the chaos of war they both had to acknowledge a gulf of distrust and class had opened between the two. Their new relationship was tested in the savagery of the combat that swept up and down the peninsula that first winter. When Tom and Marcus met again it was in combat and it soon became apparent that the one could barely trust the other with his life. The bitterness of what they experienced scarred them for the rest of their lives. Only years later when Tom stumbles across his sister's secret diary do the events of 1948 once more leap into sharp focus and allow him to seek final justice for her murder.

|9781840137828 Warhol (Great Masters) Grange Books |
As well as being one of the leading figures in the American Pop Art movement, Andy Warhol was a painter, printmaker, occasional sculptor and filmmaker whose work carried on the tradition of Dadaism which questioned the very validity of art itself. He used images and objects, and the means of their production to draw draw parallels with cultural processes. Thus, by means of a variety of techniques, but principally the choice of images, their visual repetition and pictorial isolation, and the use of colour, Warhol makes us aware of contemporary materialism, political manipulation, economic exploitation, conspicuous consumption, media hero-worship, and the creation of artificially-induced needs and aspirations.
Through manipulating images and the public persona of the artist, Warhol also confronts us with the contradictions and superficialities of contemporary culture and the art it has engendered, whilst incorporating in his paintings and sculptures the very techniques of mass production that are central to the modern world, emphasizing to the point of absurdity the complete detachment from social and artistic commitment that he saw in the world around him.
Despite the unevenness and shallowness of much of his later work, Andy Warhol was one of the most brilliant, challenging and intentionally infuriating artists of the last half of the twentieth century.

Pure and applied mathematicians, physicists, scientists, and engineers use matrices and operators and their eigenvalues in quantum mechanics, fluid mechanics, structural analysis, acoustics, ecology, numerical analysis, and many other areas. However, in some applications the usual analysis based on eigenvalues fails. For example, eigenvalues are often ineffective for analyzing dynamical systems such as fluid flow, Markov chains, ecological models, and matrix iterations. That's where this book comes in. This is the authoritative work on nonnormal matrices and operators, written by the authorities who made them famous. Each of the sixty sections is written as a self-contained essay. Each document is a lavishly illustrated introductory survey of its topic, complete with beautiful numerical experiments and all the right references. The breadth of included topics and the numerous applications that provide links between fields will make this an essential reference in mathematics and related sciences.
|9780099453949 Eco Umberto ON LITERATURE Random House |
After the opening essay on the general significance of literature, Eco examines a number of major authors from the Western canon. A stimulating chapter on the poetic qualities of Dante's "Paradiso" is followed by one on the style of the Communist Manifesto. The next three essays centre on nineteenth- and early twentieth-century literature: one on the French writer Nerval's masterpiece, "Sylvie" (a major influence on Eco and a novella that he translated into Italian), one on Oscar Wilde's love of paradox, and one on Joyce's views on language. The last three pieces deal with the road that leads from Cervantes via Swift to Borges' "Library of Babel", then an essay on Eco's own anxiety about Borges' influence on him, and the volume ends with an article on the enigmatic Italian critic and anthropologist Piero Camporesi. "On Literature" is a provocative and entertaining collection of sprightly essays on the key texts that have shaped Eco, the novelist and critic. This volume will appeal to anyone interested in how new light is shed on old masters by a great contemporary mind.

What are the aims of higher education? What are the strategies necessary for institutional improvement? How might the student experience be improved? The emergence of the discourse around learning and teaching is one of the more remarkable phenomena of the last decade in higher education. Increasingly, universities are being required to pay greater attention to improving teaching and enhancing student learning. This book will help universities and colleges achieve these goals through an approach to institutional change that is well founded on both research and practical experience.

It demonstrates how trust can be restored within higher education while advancing the need for change based on principles of equity and academic values for students and teachers alike. "Improving Teaching and Learning in Higher Education" is key reading for anyone interested in the development of teaching and learning in higher education, as well as policy makers.

The Camp Women is the first complete resource volume devoted to the SS-Aufseherinnen, the female guards of the German concentration camps during World War II. Although no directory, database, or index on the subject has ever existed, Daniel Patrick Brown has taken the bank records of the concentration camp designated for women, RavensbrYck, to begin to catalog all of these overseers who can be documented.

In addition, the role of the girl's youth organization in developing future overseers, and the eventual recruitment, training, and employment of these women is likewise examined. Because of their participation in the slaughter in the camps, a number of female overseers were tried, conv

|9780300102345 Andreyev Russia Abroad Yale University Press |
In the wake of the Russian Revolution and the ensuing civil war, approximately one-and-a-half million Russians fled their country. Many settled in Prague,
where they were welcomed and supported by the newly formed Czechoslovak Republic. This book presents the first full account of Prague's Russian emigre community from 1918 to
1938, when the Nazi invasion scattered the inhabitants yet again.
Russia Abroad examines the life of this vibrant community, its activity, achievement, and importance.
Catherine Andreyev and Ivan Savicky explore the reasons that Czechoslovakia embraced the Russian immigrants, the evolution of the Russian community, and why the original idea of
supporting Russian emigres and creating an academic centre of progressive Russians had to be modified in the light of national and international politics. The story they tell not only
illuminates aspects of Russian life and culture of the period but also offers insights into later diasporas in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
|9780300080230 McGann Dante Gabriel Rossetti & the Game that Must Be Lost Yale University Press |
Why did the work of Dante Gabriel Rossetti come to dominate the cultural geography of England between 1850 and 1910? And why, having attained that kind
of eminence, did Rossetti's star decline so precipitously with the advent of Modernism? Finally, what is there about Rossetti's work and its historical aftermath that makes these questions
important ones to ask? The cultural and aesthetic problems raised by those questions are the subject of this fascinating book. Jerome McGann, an eminent authority on Rossetti,
demonstrates the programmatic aims of Rossetti's innovative multimedia work by focusing on two issues, one philosophical and one cultural. First, McGann shows how in Rossetti's work
high-order thinking processes are modeled and executed as aesthetic practices.
Second, from Rossetti's Pre-Raphaelite 'art of the inner standing point' McGann argues that
Rossetti forces a revision of the cultural norms commonly used for evaluating artistic success and failure.

|9780521574907 Cristina Bic The Grammar of Society Cambridge Academ |
In The Grammar of Society, Cristina Bicchieri examines social norms, such as fairness, cooperation, and reciprocity, in an effort to understand their nature and dynamics, the expectations that they generate, and how they evolve and change. Drawing on several intellectual traditions and methods, including those of social psychology, experimental economics and evolutionary game theory, Bicchieri provides an integrated account of how social norms emerge, why and when we follow them, and the situations where we are most likely to focus on relevant norms. Examining the existence and survival of inefficient norms, she demonstrates how norms evolve in ways that depend upon the psychological dispositions of the individual and how such dispositions may impair social efficiency. By contrast, she also shows how certain psychological propensities may naturally lead individuals to evolve fairness norms that closely resemble those we follow in most modern societies.

|9781870673303 Hicks D Hicks - My Kind of Garden Antique Collectors Club Ltd |
The late David Hicks was one of the great designers of the twentieth century. He is initially known for his interior design but he was involved with carpets, jewellery, fabrics, furniture, wallpaper, sheets, tiles and, last but not least, gardens. His approach was dictatorial and uncompromising; what he sought to impart in this book is 'style' and it is very much a style of his own. His clear-cut attitudes are revealed in these writings on garden design and on the gardens and styles which he admires. This is a superbly illustrated book with photographs by Dana Hyde of both the gardens David Hicks designed and gardens from all around the world he admired and which particularly influenced him.

|9780813528601 Cosmetic Surgery: the Cutting Edge of Commercial Medicine In Eurospan |
Cosmetic surgery is big business. With demand rising, this commercial medical practice has become a modern body custom. To explain the emergence and growth of this demand, Deborah A. Sullivan looks beyond the cultural imperatives of appearance and examines the market dynamics inherent in the business and politics of cosmetic surgery. In so doing, she also considers the effect of commercialization on the medical profession. After reviewing prevailing beauty trends, Sullivan looks at the social, psychological and economic rewards and penalties resulting from the way we look. Following an historical overview of the technological advances that made cosmetic surgery possible she explores the relationship between improved surgical techniques and the resulting increased demand. The book also examines the ensuing conflict within the profession over recognition of commercial cosmetic surgery as a specialty. Among the topics covered are sensitive areas such as physician advertising, unregulated practice and ambulatory surgery, and the consequences of commercialism on medical judgement. Finally, it reveals how physicians and their professional organizations have shaped the ways in which cosmetic surgery is presented in advertisements and women's magazines that would promote patient demand.

|9783791324944 Lukins I Munch: in His Own Words Prestel Publishing Limited |
"Just as Leonardo da Vinci studied the recesses of the human body and dissected cadavers, I try to dissect souls" said Edvard Munch (1863-1944), Norway's greatest artist and tortured genius. In this study Munch's own soul is laid bare through the first English translation and analysis of diaries, literary sketches and letters, presented together with his most important artistic works. Preserved in the archives of the Munch Museum in Oslo, to which they were presented by the artist himself, Munch's writings give a unique insight into one of the most fascinating aristic minds of the 20th century. Munch was as influenced by the literary and philosophical context of turn-of-the-century Europe as he was by his artistic milieu, and by his own admission, several of his major works began as literary sketches. Betiflly illustrated with drawings, paintings and Munch's own photography, this book presents an intimate portrait of the artist's life - the early death of his mother, his childhood illnesses, his tragic love affair - through his own philosophical and literary pieces. Interweaving Munch's artistic and literary experiences, these texts provide a commentary on his works and personal philosophy, on the works of his contemporaries (Van Gogh among others), and on the sensibilities of his friends and family. "Munch: In His Own Words" brings the world of the artist vividly to life.

|9783764364434 Mollfors K Mario Campi Birkhauser Verlag AG |
Elegant forms, mediterranean radiance, the archicture of Mario Campi is presented here in detail. After graduating from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich), Mario Campi opened his own architecture office in Lugano in 1962. From 1977 to 1984, he was heavily involved with teaching activities at several American universities including Cornell and Harvard, then after returning to Zurich he became Professor for Architecture at the ETH Zurich in 1985. Campi's buildings are stark in form and elegantly composed, characterised by their concentration on the structural essentials, devoid of superfluity. Although his buildings are functional and very much of today, they also evoke a sense of serenity reminiscent of classical architecture. In this respect Campi is one of the major exponents of Italian rationalism. This monograph presents Campi's recent buildings and projects, highlighting his analytical approach. The projects featured include residential buildings in Lugano and the recently completed buildings for the chemistry faculty at the ETH Zurich.
