This anthology features Dimitris Fampas' guitar music— one of Greece's most celebrated classical guitarists-composers and a professor. His artistry reached far beyond the borders of his country and for a long time he was considered one of the world's leading performers. Also acclaimed as a composer, he enriched the guitar repertoire with many wonderful and original works, full of beautiful melodies and lively, exciting rhythms, mainly influenced by his native country's musical tradition.Guitarists of all levels will discover and enjoy the originality and beauty of Fampas' works as well as the quality of the compositions which cover a variety of styles. from the first piece Triplet Memory (to Emilio Pujol) which is filled with Latin American influences to the last short, but very attractive tremolo the Windsong, his music stands as a very romantic, colorful being skillfully written for the guitar. Also includes two rhythmic and lively Greek dances Sirtos and Ballos, the very pleasing Waltz, Reverie and 3 Songs for Guitar, and the easily played Sentimental Preludes, Romanza and Variations for Evgenia. Enjoy the inspiring Heart-felt Conversation with A.Segovia and the Segovia's Portrait dedicated to Andrés Segovia as well as the romantic and exciting A Lafkos' Faire. This whole collection has been compiled, revised (since some of the works presented here were found unfinished or still in a preparation level) and fingered by guitarist–professor Eva Fampas, the composer's daughter.
The defeat of the Greek armies in Asia Minor in August 1922, led directly to the flight of Greek refugees from Asia Minor, the compulsory exchange of populations between Greece and Turkey and the resettlement in Greece of 1.3 million displaced people. This text covers this impact.

The Life & Letters of St. Dimitri Klepinin, Martyred During the Holocaust
Author: Helene Klepinin-Arjakovsky
Pubpsher: Conciliar Press
Category: Biography & Autobiography
In 1943, Father Dimitri Klepinin, an Orthodox priest serving the Russian emigre community in occupied Paris, was arrested by the Nazis for issuing false baptismal certificates to Jews. One year later, he died in the concentration camp at Dora. In 2004, he was glorified as a saint by the Orthodox Church. In this volume, his daughter lovingly tells the story of her father's life, from his childhood in pre-revolutionary Russia to his martyrdom. It is the story of a man whose entire life was founded on love--for his God, his faith, his family, and all those who came to him for help. The final section of the book consists of Fr. Dimitri's letters to his wife during his confinement. In these letters we glimpse the humble, dauntless spirit of a man whose reliance on Christ was absolute and whose devotion to serving his fellowmen did not waver, even to the grave.
A Competent Genetic Algorithm for Solving Permutation and Scheduling Problems
Author: Dimitri Knjazew
Pubpsher: Springer Science & Business Media
OmeGA: A Competent Genetic Algorithm for Solving Permutation and Scheduling Problems addresses two increasingly important areas in GA implementation and practice. OmeGA, or the ordering messy genetic algorithm, combines some of the latest in competent GA technology to solve scheduling and other permutation problems. Competent GAs are those designed for principled solutions of hard problems, quickly, reliably, and accurately. Permutation and scheduling problems are difficult combinatorial optimization problems with commercial import across a variety of industries. This book approaches both subjects systematically and clearly. The first part of the book presents the clearest description of messy GAs written to date along with an innovative adaptation of the method to ordering problems. The second part of the book investigates the algorithm on boundedly difficult test functions, showing principled scale up as problems become harder and longer. Finally, the book applies the algorithm to a test function drawn from the literature of scheduling.
