Описание: WINNER OF THE HUGO AND NEBULA AWARDS - Frederik Pohl stands shoulder to shoulder with Philip K. Dick, Larry Niven, Robert Heinlein, and Ray Bradbury as one of the brilliant vision-aries in the science fiction stratosphere. Gateway is a modern masterpiece that defines--and transcends--its genre. Seeded among the stars are troves of valuable artifactsleft behind by the enigmatic, long-vanished alien racecalled the Heechee. For the right price, anyone can climb aboard one of the abandoned Heechee spaceships, castoff on an autopilot voyage to parts unknown, and takea chance on finding wealth . . . or facing death. Robinette Broadhead took that chance and walked awaya winner. But at what cost? Despite living a millionaire's life of material luxury, he's haunted by crippling despair--and the dark secrets buried deep in his psyche. With the help of his computerized psychiatrist, the truth about whathappened "out there" could set Broadhead free. But only after a personal journey more terrifying and, ultimately, more devastating than his last fateful trip into space. Praise for Gateway "When an author of the stature of Frederik Pohl says that . . . Gateway is the best thing he has ever written, it deserves careful attention. . . . Get this one."--Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine
"Ccompulsive reading."--Chicago Daily News "Wonderfully satisfying."--The New York Times Book Review
Описание: 'The book remains a valuable tool both for statisticians who are already familiar with the theory of copulas and just need to develop sampling algorithms, and for practitioners who want to learn copulas and implement the simulation techniques needed to exploit the potential of copulas in applications.'Mathematical ReviewsThe book provides the background on simulating copulas and multivariate distributions in general. It unifies the scattered literature on the simulation of various families of copulas (elliptical, Archimedean, Marshall-Olkin type, etc.) as well as on different construction principles (factor models, pair-copula construction, etc.). The book is self-contained and unified in presentation and can be used as a textbook for graduate and advanced undergraduate students with a firm background in stochastics. Besides the theoretical foundation, ready-to-implement algorithms and many examples make the book a valuable tool for anyone who is applying the methodology.

The undisputed virtuosity of William Shakespeare's theatrical works--and their perennial relationship to the experience of being human--assures their continued importance in the cultural life of the twenty-first century. However, Shakespeare is a subject of interest beyond the theater; his life and work remain among the foremost themes of literary and historical scholarship. Nonetheless, virtually every scholarly commentary on Shakespeare's dramas remains unsatisfying on a deeper level. This is because the profound depths of these plays are not, in fact, accessible to a strictly intellectual approach. Shakespeare's "realism" relates just as much to the world we inhabit in our dreams as it does to our everyday consciousness. Taken as a whole, Shakespeare's dramas are characterized by the interplay of a brightly colored, dynamic "dream" world and a "real" world of authentic, even archetypal, psychological insight. This dual-nature of Shakespeare's plays serves as the author's point of departure in this book.
Using seven of his most loved and performed plays as examples, Willem Frederik Veltman uncovers the spiritual reality that hides--in full view, as an open secret--in Shakespeare's world of images. This exciting study looks at The Merchant of Venice; A Midsummer Night's Dream; Macbeth; Hamlet; As You Like It; The Winter's Tale; and The Tempest.
