|9780521770439 An Introduction to Mathematical Finance Cambridge Academ |
This mathematically elementary introduction to the theory of options pricing presents the Black-Scholes theory of options as well as introducing such topics in finance as the time value of money, mean variance analysis, optimal portfolio selection, and the capital assets pricing model. The author assumes no prior knowledge of probability and presents all the necessary preliminary material simply and clearly. He explains the concept of arbitrage with examples, and then uses the arbitrage theorem, along with an approximation of geometric Brownian motion, to obtain a simple derivation of the Black-Scholes formula. In the later chapters he presents real price data indicating that this model is not always appropriate and shows how the model can be generalized to deal with such situations. No other text presents such topics in a mathematically accurate but accessible way. It will appeal to professional traders as well as undergraduates studying the basics of finance.

|9780810967953 Briliant Leroy neiman Abrams |
Emerging in the 1950s in Chicago, LeRoy Neiman brought to his art the painterliness of Abstract Expressionism, but he couldn't resist representing the world around him. The artists he mingled with were the great jazz artists: Armstrong and Fitzgerald, Mingus and Davis, and his portraits of them are profound. As his career flourished, Neiman travelled the jet-set circuit and depicted urban sophisticates, cafe society and cocktail culture. Neiman is perhaps best known for his depictions of sporting events and portraits of sports icons, from Muhammed Ali to Roy Jones Jr. This volume encompasses the entire creative vision of LeRoy Neiman, showcasing the rich, multi-faceted spectacle of contemporary life in the second half of the 20th century.
|9780714843582 Lawrence Alma-Tadema Pb Phaidon Press Ltd. |
Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema (1836-1912), was one of the finest and most distinctive of the Victorian painters. Dutch-born, he moved to London in 1870 and became famous for his depictions of the luxury and decadence of the Roman Empire, set in fabulous marbled interiors or against a backdrop of dazzling blue Mediterranean sea and sky. In this original study, Rosemary Barrow presents an absorbing and often amusing portrait of an exuberant personality who carved out a brilliant career for himself at the heart of London's artistic and cultural elite. But above all she subjects the paintings to a fresh scrutiny, and reveals that Alma-Tadema, a knowledgeable student of antiquity, repeatedly used literary and archaeologil allusions in his paintings to play a game of interpretation with his viewers. Time and again the seeming innocence of the scenes he depicts is subverted by a mischievously placed inscription or statue, suggesting to the initiated a darker and usually risque meaning. Neglected after his death, Alma-Tadema's paintings are once again admired for their beauty and their remarkable mastery of light, colour and texture. With its intriguing insights into his personality and intentions, this book should provide a challenging reassessment of a major artist.

|9780521016926 Lyle Scruggs Sustaining Abundance Cambridge Academ |
The ultimate goal of environmental policy is reducing pollution. Attention to environmental problems in the social sciences has brought some bold generalizations about causes of good results, but almost no systematic cross-national studies that flesh out major theoretical arguments and test those claims with data. This study makes a seminal contribution to that effort in two ways. First, by taking environmental outcomes over the last thirty years as the central dependent variable, it provides a basis for evaluating national performance in reducing environmental problems. Second, by developing a data set including performance in a number of countries and elaborating on major explanations of environmental performance found in the literature, this study provides the most rigorous available analysis of the determinants of environmental performance. In so doing, it challenges what is probably the conventional wisdom in the social sciences.

|9781843430506 Politkovskay Putin s Russia Random House |
Former KGB spy Vladimir Putin, named Prime Minister of Russia in 1999 and, one year later, President, has been something of a media darling in the West, having successfully marketed himself as an enlightened leader with both feet planted firmly on the Eastern borders of Europe. Anti-establishment journalist and human-rights activist Anna Politkovskaya disagrees strenuously with this point of view. In her new book, she trains her steely gaze on, as she puts at, Putin "without the rapture". From her privileged vantage-point at the heart of Russian current affairs, Politkovskaya reports from behind the scenes, dismantling both Putin the man and Putin the brand name, arguing that he is a power-hungry product of his own history in the security forces and so unable to prevent himself from stifling dissent and other civil liberties at every turn. After centuries of living under tyrants, Politkovskaya argues, this is not what contemporary Russians want. The book is, however, not simply a biography or an analysis of Putin's presidency. Politkovskaya's writing is known for its humanity and its passion, and her focus is on individual human beings and their stories. As she puts it, "my book is jottings made on the margins of life in Russia. For the time being, I cannot analyse that existence. I'm just living and noting what I see." So her readers are treated to exposes of mafia dealings and scandals in the provinces, of corruption in the military and the judiciary, of the decline of the dissident intelligentsia and concomitant rise of street traders, and of the truth behind the Moscow theatre siege. Other shocking stories fill out an intimate portrait of nascent civil institutions being subverted under the unquestioning eyes of the West.

The Antitrust Revolution: Economics, Competition, and Policy, 4/e, examines the critical role of economic analysis in recent antitrust case decisions and policy. The book consists of economic studies of twenty of the most significant antitrust cases of recent years, fourteen of them new to this edition and six updated from the third edition. These cases include alleged anticompetitive practices by Microsoft, Intel, and American Airlines; mergers-proposed or consummateby
AOL and TimeWarner, GE and Honeywell, MCI WorldCom and Sprint, and BP Amoco and ARCO; and other competitive issues such as bid rigging on school milk contracts, professional sports league practices, prescription drug pricing, and vertical restraints by manufacturers in regard to distributors. New overview essays precede the four sections of the book: Horizontal Structure, Horizontal Practices, Vertical and Related Market Issues, and Network Issues.
Commissioned and edited by John E. Kwoka and Lawrence J. White, the case studies are written by prominent economists who participated in the proceedings. These economists were responsible for helping to formulate the economic issues, undertake the necessary economic research, and offer the economic arguments in court. As a result, they are uniquely qualified to describe and analyze the cases. Fully updated with the most current examples, this volume provides detailed and comprehensive insight
into the central role that is now played and will continue to be played by economics and economists in the antitrust process. The Antitrust Revolution, 4/e, is ideal for undergraduate and graduate classes in industrial organization, government policy, and antitrust/regulation law and economics. It is also a useful reference book for lawyers and economists--both academics and practitioners--who are interested in the types of economic analyses that have been applied in recent antitrust
cases.New to the fourth edition, the site features cases from the previous three editions.

|9780436205170 Eco Umberto On Beauty Random House |
Beauty is neither a history of art, nor a history of aesthetics but Umberto Eco draws on the histories of both these disciplines to define the ideas of beauty that have informed sensibilities from the classical world to modern times. In terms of form and style, Beauty has been conceived for a vast and diversified readership: taking in painting, sculpture, architecture, film, photography, the decorative arts, novels and poems, it offers a rich and intelligent panorama of this huge subject. It traces the philosophy of aesthetics through history and examines some of the many treatises that have sought to define it. Beauty is Umberto Eco at his most captivating and eclectic: we read not only of Botticelli and Michelangelo but of how the fashion of the 1960s owes much to ancient Egyptian dress, and how ancient Roman and eighteenth-century hairstyles have much in common. It makes the familiar new, and sheds a brilliant new light on the unfamiliar. Illustrated in full colour throughout and produced to the highest standards, Beauty is an indispensable book.

|9780006552055 Marya Hornba Centre of Winter, The HarperCollins UK |
A fascinating, highly unusual, literary novel of love, obsession and powerful women by the author of the highly acclaimed Wasted. 'All the seasons here in the north move toward their own end, except winter, which moves toward its centre and sits there to see how long you can take it.' At the centre of winter, in Motley, Minnesota, Arnold Schiller gives in to the oppressive season that reigns outside and to his own inner demons and commits suicide, leaving a devastated family in his wake. Claire Schiller, wife and mother, takes shelter from the emotional storm with her husband's parents, but must ultimately emerge from her grief and help her two young children to recover. Esau, her oldest, is haunted by the same darkness that plagued his father. At twelve years old, he has already been in and out of state psychiatric hospils and now, with the help of his mother and sister, he must overcome the forces that drive him deep into himself. But as the youngest, perhaps, it is Kate who carries the heaviest burden. A precocious six-year-old who desperately wants to help her mother hold the family together, she will have to come to terms with the memory of her father who was at once loving and cruel. Narrated alternately by Claire, Katie and Esau, this powerful and passionate novel explores the ways in which both children and adults experience tragic events, discover solace and hope in each other, and survive. The Centre of Winter finds humour in unlikely places and evokes the north -- its people and landscape -- with warmth, sensitivity and insight. The story of three people who, against all odds, find their way out of the centre of winter, Marya Hornbacher's debut novel will leave you breathless, tearful, and ultimately, inspired.

It achieves this objective."

|9780415400244 Krieger-Bode The impact of European integration on its Regions Taylor&Francis |
Edited by three European editors and spanning across Europe, this excellent study focuses on the effects of the European integration process on the
inter-regional division of labour in both western and Eastern European countries. Using extensive empirical analysis of the changes of re
ional specialization over a period of two decades, observing its causes and consequences, the authors show economic integration as a relocation of resources across sectors and
space. The authors argue that the resulting challenge to both regional and social cohesion in the enlarged European Union may require a reorientation of cohesion policy at European,
national and local levels.
Disaggregated national data sets with respect to both the sectoral and spatial levels are combined with an analysis of both regional structural change
and the role of foreign direct investment in this process. This book will be of great interest to post graduate students and researchers interested in international trade and regional
economics as well as policy makers engaged with regional and structural changes at both a European and national level.

|9780300096903 Chenique, Br Theodore Chasseriau Yale University Press |
Theodore Chasseriau was one of the most sensual and intellectual painters of his time. A pupil and precocious disciple of Ingres, he also fell under the
influence of Delacroix, and he left his mark on both the second generation of Romantic artists and their Symbolist successors. Although his works fuse Ingres's linear precision with the
lush colour and Romantic exoticism of Delacroix, they escape easy stylistic classification.
His oeuvre includes Orientalist and religious paintings, scenes from Antiquity, and
portraits, but he is best known for his ambitious decorative compositions for the churches of Paris and for the Cour des Comptes in the Palais d'Orsay. This volume presents more than
250 of Chasseriau's paintings, drawings and prints. The texts of the essays and entries, as well as the extensive chronology, focus on the artist's personality, his professional and social
milieu, and on the works themselves, thus providing an in-depth view of the state of the arts in France in the mid-19th century.

|9780552150583 Cooper, Jill The Man Who Made Husbands Jealous Transworld Publishers |
Lysander Hawkley combined breathtaking good looks with the kindest of hearts. He couldn't pass a stray dog, an ill-treated horse, or a neglected wife without
rushing to the rescue. And with neglected wives the rescue invariably led to ecstatic bonking, which didn't please their erring husbands one bit.
Lysander's mid-life crisis had
begun at twenty-two. Reeling from the death of his beautiful mother, he was out of work, drinking too much and desperately in debt. The solution came from Ferdie, his fat,
fast-operating friend: if Lysander was so good at making husbands jealous, why shouldn't he get paid for it? So Ferdie moved him into the idyllic Rutshire village of Paradise, which
teemed with underserviced wives whose husbands were whooping it up in London.
Not only did Lysander cause absolute havoc, but as the husbands came roaring home to
protect their property he was soon awash with cash, polo ponies, yachts and Ferraris given him by grateful wives. But husband rattling has its complications. The undisputed King Rat of
Rutshire was a fiendishly temperamental, world-famous conductor called Rannaldini, who lived in a huge haunted abbey overlooking Paradise with a Rottweiler called Tabloid and a
string of racehorses and glamorous groupies.
Indeed, the only unglamorous woman around Rannaldini was the one who ran his life like clockwork, his plump young wife Kitty.
Soon Lysander was seriously convinced that Kitty must be rescued at all costs from Rannaldini's sadistic promiscuity. Frantic to prove he was not just a far-from-cheap wife-enhancer,
Lysander enlisted the help of old blue-eyed havoc maker Rupert Campbell-Black, who as a successful trainer had his own reasons for wanting to bury Rannaldini -
and the battle of the giants was on.
Set against a ritzy background of racing and grand operatics, this new Rutshire chronicle continues the high jinks of the rich and famous
that have so lavishly entertained the countless readers of 'RIDERS', 'RIVALS' and 'POLO'.

Design ideas for everything from paving and pergolas to perennial plantings burst from every page, captured in Andrew Lawson's atmospheric images and Lennox-Boyd's plans.
The second part of the book looks in detail at more than 20 very different gardens, many these are private and never photographed before.

|9783764324155 Lehmann Sylv Techniques in Prion Research Birkhauser Verlag AG |
Prion diseases, also known as Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies (TSEs), exist in both humans (Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD)) and animals (scrapie, bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), chronic wasting disease) and have the unique property of being infectious, sporadic or genetic in origin.Although the precise nature of the infectious agent responsible for TSEs is not definitely identified, it is now clearly demonstrated that a protein named PrP (for Prion Protein) plays a critical role in the transmission and pathogenesis of TSEs.This book provides the general description as well as the details of the techniques currently used for the study of prion diseases. Taking into account the pivotal role played by PrP it is not surprising that many Chapters of this book deal with the purification, the detection and the characterization of the different forms of this protein. In addition, in vitro, cellular and animal models specifically adapted to the study of TSEs, as well as bio-safety procedures are described. Each Chapter is written by scientists involved for many years in their respective domain of prion biology who give the best of their knowledge in this technical document. This volume is a very useful tool for any laboratory which recently decided to contribute to the study of TSEs as well as for teams already engaged in this field for many years but interested in extending their technical capacity toward new methods.Features:Purification of PrPC and the Pathological Isoform of Prion Protein (PrPsc or PrP-res)Animal Models of TSEsCell Culture Models of TSEsPrPsc ImmunohistochemistryWestern Immunoblotting TechniquesAntibody Production and ELISATSE Strain Typing in MiceBiosafety and Decontamination ProceduresCell-free Conversion of Prion ProteinsCytotoxicity of PrP PeptidesCyclic Amplification of Prion Protein MisfoldingPrion diseases, also known as Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies (TSEs), exist in both humans (Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) and animals (scrapie, bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), chronic wasting disease) and have the unique property of being infectious, sporadic or genetic in origin.Although the precise nature of the infectious agent responsible for TSEs is not definitely identified, it is now clearly demonstrated that a protein named PrP (for Prion Protein) plays a critical role in the transmission and pathogenesis of TSEs.This book provides the general description as well as the details of the techniques currently used for the study of prion diseases.

|9783540727149 Xu GPS Springer |
This reference and handbook describes theory, algorithms and applications of the Global Positioning System (GPS/Galileo). It is primarily based on source-code descriptions of the KSGsoft program developed by the author at the GFZ in Potsdam. The theory and algorithms are extended and verified for a new development of a multiple functional GPS/Galileo software. Besides the concepts such as the unified GPS data processing method and the numerical solution of the variation equations, as well as the general ambiguity search criteria reported in the first edition, there are several highlights reported. Such as the equivalent principle and its applications, the theory of independent parameterisation, the diagonalisation algorithm, etc.. Mathematically rigorous, the book begins with the basics of coordinate and time systems and satellite orbits, as well as GPS observables, and deals with topics such as physical influences, observation equations and their parameterisation, adjustment and filtering, ambiguity resolution, data processing, and the determination of perturbed orbits.
|9780387710792 Gaither Carl Gaither s Dictionary of Scientific Quotations Springer |

Professor Conant's detailed studies of Santiago de Compostela and of the abbey church at Cluny fit him for this account of building in the period of the round
arch which preceeded Gothic. In this volume he shows how, at the instigation of the monasteries during the little renaissance of Charlemagne, Roman methods of construction were
revived and fused with local traditions to produce a distinctive Carolingian manner; and how such monuments as the Palatine Chapel at Aachen already contained hints of the nobler

|9781557989307 Keyes, Corey Flourishing Eurospan |
Psychology has made great strides in understanding mental illness, but how much has it learned about mental health? When people want to reflect upon the
good life and how to live it, they turn to philosophers and novelists, not psychologists. The emerging field of positive psychology aims to redress this imbalance. In Flourishing,
distinguished scholars apply scientific analyses to study the good life, expanding the scope of social and psychological research to include happiness, well-being, courage, citizenship,
play, and the satisfactions of healthy work and healthy relationships.
Their findings reveal that a sense of meaning and a feeling of richness emerge in life as people immerse
themselves in activities, relationships, and the pursuit of intrinsically satisfying goals like overcoming adversity or serving one's community through volunteering. This provocative book
will further define this evolving field.

|9783764356323 Rambert F Claude Vasconi Birkhauser Verlag AG |
The French architect Claude Vasconi gained widespread attention with his elegantly-produced industrial buildings. His assembly halls for Renault in Billancourt became so well known in France that they were used for an edition of postage stamps. Equally sophisticated curved forms distinguish his opera house and congress centre in Mulhouse and the administrative building for the Departement du Bas-Rhin in Strasbourg. Vasconi has also created office buildings such as the Lille-Europe tower in Euralille, the Spandau Gate centre in Berlin and the Kreativitatsmelle in Dusseldorf. In 1973 he gained international acclaim as a result of the highly-controversial project of Les Halles in Paris. Further projects include the reorganization of the Borsig-area in Berlin and the design for the new Chamber of Commerce in Luxembourg. Smaller projects such as a radar station in the Vosges mountains and a mobile theatre in Weimar have also come under the aegis of this versatile architect This volume presents approximately 20 selected buildings and projects from the 1970s to the 1990s.
|9780521860178 Dean Baker The United States since 1980 Cambridge Academ |
Describes the sharp right turn the United States has taken following the election of Ronald Reagan as president in 1980. The treatment details how the policies pursued by the Reagan administration were a break from both the policies pursued by prior administrations and those pursued in other wealthy countries. The Reagan administration policies had the effect of redistributing both before- and after-tax income upward, creating a situation in which the bulk of the economic gains over the last quarter century were directed to a small segment of the population. The analysis explains how both political parties have come largely to accept the main tenets of Reaganism, putting the United States on a path that is at odds with most of the rest of the world and is not sustainable.
|9780521716277 Richard M. E A Social History of the Deccan, 1300–1761 Cambridge Academ |
In this fascinating account of one of the least known parts of South Asia, Eaton recounts the history of the Deccan plateau in southern India from the fourteenth century to the rise of European colonialism. He does so, vividly, through the lives of eight Indians who lived at different times during this period, and who each represented something particular about the Deccan. In the first chapter, for example, the author describes the demise of the regional kingdom through the life of a maharaja. In the second, a Sufi sheikh illustrates Muslim piety and state authority. Other characters include a merchant, a general, a slave, a poet, a bandit and a female pawnbroker. Their stories are woven together into a rich narrative tapestry, which illumines the most important social processes of the Deccan across four centuries. This is a much-needed book by the most highly regarded scholar in the field.

artworks were dated by radio-carbon tests to an age of 27,000 years. The undersea gallery includes pictures of land animals such as horses, ibex, chamois, and the huge, long-extinct
megaloceros deer; marine animals such as seals and great auks, which flourished in the then-frigid Mediterranean climate; dozens of paintings of human hands; and amazingly, a
drawing of a human killed by a spear, an unusual subject in paleolithic art. The authors discuss in detail the size, style and location of the images, and compare them with art found in
other prehistoric caves.

|9783764355357 Steven Holl Birkhauser Verlag AG |
The work of New York architect Stephen Holl is hallarked by a minimalism. This process of refinement - reference to Japanese modernity - is expressed by an authenticity of construction, and an architecture that is at once simple and complex. His work expresses his curiosity about, and passion for, forms and detail, as well as sensibility to the essence of materials. To Stephen Holl's mind, architecture goes beyond physical and functional requirements by merging with the site in a relationship that is both metaphysical and poetic. He draws abstract compositions which are the springboard for the conceptual developments of the project. Forms, colours and materials are all worked out using water-colours and small-scale models, in which figurative and abstract features are juxtaposed. This linkage in turn gives rise to a particular formal and conceptual langauge.

|9781856691031 Jones Architecture and the Environment Thames & Hudson |
Sustainable building has commonly been seen as separate from mainstream architecture and has been accorded the status of worthy but dull design. Adopting the term "bioclimatic" in preference to "green" to describe buildings which are inspired by nature and have a clear strategy for minimizing environmental depredation, this book seeks to revise this judgement. Introductory chapters trace the history of bioclimatic design in architecture, exploring the relationship between architecture and the natural environment. An examination of three projects currently under construction points to future directions in bioclimatic architecture. The contemporary projects featured in the main section of the book are diverse - from office buildings which flaunt their measures for energy conservation in the form of external solar shading, wind towers, glazed atria and photovoltaic modules, to a church built from tubes of recycled paper and a museum constructed in timber and inserted in a woodland setting. Architects whose work is featured include Tadao Ando, Shigeru Ban, Edward Cullinan, Foster and Partners, Herzog and Partners, Glenn Murcutt and Arata Isozaki.

|9780300055221 Modernism in Dispute Yale University Press |
This volume is part ofour-volume series about art and its interpretation in the 19th and 20th centuries. The books provide an introduction to modern European and American art and criticism that should be valuable both to students and to the general reader. This, the final volume in this series discusses how American art evolved from the social realism prevalent during the 1930s to a predominantly abstract art after the war, relates this change to America's growing economic and political dominance of the post-war world, and constrasts the abstraction of American art with the persistently realistic art of France. The authors then review the era of high Modernism in the 1960s and the challenge to Modernism by movements such as Minimal art, Land art, and Conceptual art, and they consider the moves to develop an art of overt social purpose in the wake of widespread criticism of Modernist claims for the autonomy of art. The book concludes by considering the implications of the Postmodernism debate for the practice of art today.
