Ausgestoßen und verfemt - Der letzte Teil des sechsteiligen Serials »Das Pestkind« von Nicole Steyer! Rosenheim zur Zeit des Dreißigjährigen Krieges: Die junge Marianne lebt und arbeitet in der Brauerei, die von der Witwe Hedwig Thaler geführt wird. Die alte Frau hat Marianne bei sich aufgenommen und aufgezogen – doch das Mädchen hat von ihr nur böse Worte und Ungerechtigkeiten empfangen. Einzig der Pfarrer des Ortes begegnet Marianne freundlich und nimmt sie vor den Anfeindungen der Leute in Schutz: Diese sehen in ihr so etwas wie eine Hexe, da sie einst die Pest überlebt hat. Doch dann liegt eines Tages Hedwig Thaler erschlagen auf dem Hof – und nur Marianne ahnt, wer der Mörder ist ...

In 1747 Paris, Sophie falls in love with married philosopher Denis Diderot, who is collaborating with authors to create an encyclopedia of all human knowledge, a project that threatens to undermine both the monarchy and the church--as well as Sophie's right to freedom, love, and happiness.

1913. Dinners, Millet-Bass, and Napps-three explorers bound not by friendship, but by a dependence founded on survival-volunteer to leave their ship, the Kismet, and scout an uncharted and unknown island in the Antarctic, which Napps names "Everland." While all three are enticed by the promise of adventure and reward, they are immortalized by the disastrous outcome of the expedition, their stories preserved for posterity. 2012. Brix, Jess, and Decker-three researchers with their own reasons for being so far from home-set out on a centenary field trip to survey the same island. Their equipment is more advanced than the previous group's, and their purpose more scientific, but the harsh weather of Everland remains an unpredictable and deadly force: the adventure and the danger are inescapable. Under the harsh ultraviolet light of a sun which doesn't set, and isolated from the world, they begin to echo the expedition of a hundred years ago. History, it seems, has a way of repeating itself-when theirs is written, what will it say? From the Trade Paperback edition.

In recent years, Niccolò Machiavelli's works have been viewed primarily with historical interest as analysis of the tactics used by immoral political officials. Roger D. Masters, a leading expert in the relationship between modern natural sciences and politics, argues boldly in this book that Machiavelli should be reconsidered as a major philosopher whose thought makes the wisdom of antiquity accessible to the modern (and post-modern) condition, and whose understanding of human nature is superior to that of Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, Marx, or Mill. Central to Masters's claim is his discovery, based on previously untranslated documents, that Machiavelli knew and worked with Leonardo da Vinci between 1502-1507. An interdisciplinary tour de force, Machiavelli, Leonardo, and the Science of Power will challenge, perplex, and ultimately delight readers with its evocative story of the relationship between Machiavelli and da Vinci, their crucial roles in the emergence of modernity, and the vast implications this holds for contemporary life and society.

The market for consumer electronics is characterized by rapidly growing complexities of applications and decreasing market window opportunities. A key concept for coping with such requirements is the reuse of system components. Embedding programmable processors into VLSI systems facilitates reuse and offers a high degree of flexibility. The use of embedded processors, however, poses challenges for software compilers, because real-time constraints and limited silicon area for program memories demand extremely efficient machine code. Additionally there is a need for flexible, retargetable compilers which explore the mutual dependence between processor architectures and program execution speed. Current compiler technology does not meet these demands, particularly the area of DSP where application-specific processors are predominant. As a consequence, the largest part of DSP software is still developed manually at assembly language level. Recent research efforts, located at the intersection of software and hardware design, aim at eliminating this bottleneck. Retargetable Code Generation for Digital Signal Processors outlines the new role of compilers in hardware/software codesign of embedded systems, and it describes the state-of-the-art in the area of retargetable code generation and optimization for embedded DSPs. It presents novel concepts and algorithmic solutions, which achieve both retargetability and high code quality. In contrast to approaches taken in classical compiler construction, emphasis is put on effective code optimization instead of high compilation speed. The usefulness of the proposed techniques is demonstrated for real-life architectures. Retargetable Code Generation for Digital Signal Processors, with a foreword by Peter Marwedel, is the first contribution to this area, that presents an integrated solution for retargetable DSP compilers. It covers the whole compilation process, including target processor modelling, intermediate code generation, code selection, register allocation, scheduling and optimization for parallelism. It will be of interest to researchers, senior design engineers and CAD managers both in academia and industry.

Statistical Analysis in the Social Sciences imbeds basic descriptive and inferential statistical concepts within a unified framework: the linear regression model. The regression model is used not only for conducting standard regression analyses but also for other statistical analyses that are ordinarily taught as separate and distinct techniques, such as correlation, difference of means, analysis of variance, and certain nonparametric tests. This extensive use of a single statistical model will increase students' depth of understanding and give them a sense of mastery and self-confidence that they might otherwise fail to achieve in their first statistics course.
