Описание: This volume puts forth an original theoretical framework, the ludonarrative model, for studying video games which foregrounds the empirical study of the player experience. The book provides a comprehensive introduction to and description of the model, which draws on theoretical frameworks from multimodal discourse analysis, game studies, and social semiotics, and its development out of participant observation and qualitative interviews from the empirical study of a group of players. The volume then applies this approach to shed light on how players’ experiences in a game influence how they understand and make use of game components in order to progress its narrative. The book concludes with a frame by frame analysis of a popular game to demonstrate the model’s principles in action and its subsequent broader applicability to analyzing video game interaction and design. Offering a new way forward for video game research, this volume is key reading for students and scholars in multimodality, discourse analysis, game studies, interactive storytelling, and new media.

Описание: A synchrotron is a particular type of cyclic particle accelerator in which the magnetic field and the electric field are carefully synchronised with the travelling particle beam. In this book, the authors discuss the design, properties and applications of synchrotrons. Topics include synchrotron radiation as a tool to study fragmentation of chlorine containing molecules; undulator radiation in multiple magnetic fields; molecular clustering and molecular imaging to study biomoleculars and biopolymers in heterogeneous biological tissues; nanoscale diffusion and solid state reaction in layered structures; in-situ real-time synchrotron x-ray scattering; and synchrotron-based fourier transform infrared spectroscopy.
Описание: Companies, society and individuals' dreams have been shattered as a result of directors' reckless acts. In an effort, to avoid such situations, there is total failure to add another fundamental aspect which is "directors' responsibilities to creditors of the company" they direct. Many a judge, lawyers and practitioners have least thought of this as a serious factor. They are blinded by the principles that directors are directly responsible to their employer company and that their acts are protected by the company. Even in those circumstances where the veil of incorporation is lifted, to expose directors for "ultra vires" acts in the company, nothing or little is done to involve the creditors' interest who provide the capital. Creditors' interest have been relegated to insolvency. This book sets to illustrate to investors, businessmen, judges, lawyers and practitioners, policymakers and students that for companies/establishments to stay healthy in business, managing directors must be responsible to creditors whose interests need to be protected like those of other stakeholders in the company. South Africa and OHADA region are used for illustration.
