Par williams maria le jeudi, octobre 5 , This book moves systematically through the topic of applied probability from an introductory chapter to such topics as random variables and vectors, stochastic processes, estimation, testing and regression. The topics are well chosen and the presentation is enriched by many examples from real life.
Each chapter concludes with many original, solved and unsolved problems and hundreds of multiple choice questions, enabling those unfamiliar with the topics to master them. Additionally appealing are historical notes on the mathematicians mentioned throughout, and a useful bibliography. A distinguishing character of the book is its thorough and succinct handling of the varied topics.
Seventeen-year-old Vane Weston has no idea how he survived the category five tornado that killed his parents. And he has no idea if the beautiful, dark-haired girl who s swept through his dreams every night since the Kanban and Scrum - Making the Most of Both download ebook storm is real. But he hopes she is. Spark Joy is an in-depth, line illustrated, room-by-room guide to decluttering and organising your home, from bedrooms and kitchens to bathrooms and living rooms as well as a wide range of items in different categories, including clothes, photographs, paperwork, books, cutlery, cosmetics, shoes, bags, wallets and valuables.
Charming line drawings explain how to properly organise drawers, wardrobes, cupboards and cabinets. The illustrations also show Ms Kondo's unique folding method, clearly showing how to fold anything from shirts, trousers and jackets to skirts, socks and bras. The secret to Marie Kondo's unique and simple KonMari tidying method is to focus on what you want to keep, not what you want to get rid of.
Ask yourself if something 'sparks joy' and suddenly it becomes so much easier to understand if you really need it in your home and your life. When you surround yourself with things you love you will find that your whole life begins to change.
Marie Kondo's first book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying, presents her unique tidying philosophy and introduces readers to the basics of her KonMari method. The following books are included in this Boxed Set Trapped in Minecraft: Spud's Thrilling Adventure in the Overworld Trapped in Minecraft starts with Spud, a perfectly normal kid, who gets home and plays his Minecraft game. Like most nights, he plays for as long as he can. But this time, he soon finds himself trapped inside the Minecraft game, fighting for his survival.
Will Spud escape or become another victim to Minecraft? Once they reach the mountain, however, they are transported to a strange, dangerous world - the Skylands! Filled with floating islands, weird creatures and dangerous obstacles, the Skylands make Rozzie and Greyson wish they were back at home under the covers! Escape from Minecraft: Buck Descends into the Caves Buck was having another normal night, playing Minecraft in hopes that his mom would stop bothering him.
The longer he plays, however, the more he realizes he is being transported into the game! Soon he is in the caves, battling angry creepers and scary zombies. Will Buck be able to lead his group through the spooky Minecraft caves and get back to the real world? Herobrine Invades the Overworld The Overworld has been swarmed and civilization destroyed by massive hordes of attacking Creepers.
Someone is behind it - and some say it's Herobrine. Our three heroes, Tone Dead, Fumbles, and Moose, form a deadly team and fight their way through horde after horde. Finally, they encounter the legendary Herobrine. But Herobrine wasn't exactly who they thought Scrum and Kanban are two flavours of Agile software development - two deceptively simple but surprisingly powerful approaches to software development. So how do they relate to each other? The purpose of this book is to clear up the fog, so you can figure out how Kanban and Scrum might be useful in your environment.
Part I illustrates the similarities and differences between Kanban and Scrum, comparing for understanding, not for judgement. There is no such thing as a good or bad tool - just good or bad decisions about when and how to use which tool. This book includes: - Kanban and Scrum in a nutshell - Comparison of Kanban and Scrum and other Agile methods - Practical examples and pitfalls - Cartoons and diagrams illustrating day-to-day work - Detailed case study of a Kanban implementation within a Scrum organization Part II is a case study illustrating how a Scrum-based development organization implemented Kanban in their operations and support teams.
Par williams maria le jeudi, septembre 28 , Deborah Smith's is one of the most imaginative and appealing new voices in Southern fiction. In the tradition of "Fried Green Tomatoes, " the nationally bestselling author offers a deliciously original new novel that will make you laugh one moment and then move you to tears--an irresistible Southern saga that chronicles a love as innocent as a child's and as powerful as that of two star-crossed lovers can be. I'd be deliberately peculiar.
I'd wear bright red lipstick and tell embarrassing true stories about my family, and people would say, "I heard she was always a little funny, if you know what I mean.
And she knows why it all started falling apart, too. Because Roan Sullivan was banished from Dunderry, Georgia, twenty years ago, and Claire hasn't heard from him since. She was only ten then, and Roan fifteen, but what happened to the two of them is the stuff of local legend, as vivid and dramatic as anything can be in a small town where people hoard sad stories as carefully as their great-grandmother's china.
Back then, Roan Sullivan lived in a trailer amid junked cars and rusted tin cans, while Claire was the willful, pampered young daughter of the town's most respected family. So no one--least of all her parents--understood the bond that tied her to the fierce, motherless boy who had to fight every day for his place in the world. But Roan and Claire didn't choose one another; they belonged together, as involuntarily andpermanently as the soil and the seed from which the foxgloves grew on the side of Dunshinnog Mountain.
They were simply a part of the place, and a part of each other. Until the dark afternoon when violence and terror overtook them, and Roan disappeared from Claire's life. Now, twenty years later, Claire is adrift, and the Maloneys are still hoping the past can be buried forever under the rich Southern earth. But Roan Sullivan is about to walk back into their lives. By turns tender and sexy and heartbreaking and exuberant, "A Place to Call Home" is an unforgettable journey between two hearts.
It is a book to read, and reread, and cherish. The reader's sense is that these two could only belong to one another, and no one else. I also loved the rich detail of family life, especially the uniquely Southern aspects. A moving story that holds you to the end and has all warmth and tenderness of LaVyrle Spencer at her best. Meddling old biddies, warring families, lovers reunited.
What more could you want? Katherine Mansfield: A Secret Life. Par williams maria le samedi, septembre 23 , On the third day of the war with Japan, two Royal Navy capital ships were sunk off Malaya by air torpedo attack. The authors re-create for the reader not only what happened, but also what it was like for the men involved. They dispose of several myths to explain the events of those confused hours, and address the uncertainty, controversy and strong emotions that surrounded the militarily disastrous sinkings.
This guide begins with an introduction to the Sanskrit alphabet, followed by a treatment of the accent its changes in combination, inflection, and tone. Succeeding chapters discuss declension, conjugation, parts of speech, more. Josey Wales was the most wanted man in Texas. His wife and child had been lost to pre-civil War destruction and, like Jesse James and other young farmers, he joined the guerrilla soldiers of Missouri--men with no cause but survival and no purpose but revenge.
Hiding by day, traveling by night, they are joined by an Indian woman named Little Moonlight, and rescue an old woman and her granddaughter from their besieged wagon. The five of them travel toward Texas and win through brash and honest violence, a chance for a new way of life. Bringing to life the science and adventure of eighteenth-century plant collecting, The Brother Gardeners is the story of how six men created the modern garden and changed the horticultural world in the process.
It is a story of a garden revolution that began in America. In , colonial farmer John Bartram shipped two boxes of precious American plants and seeds to Peter Collinson in London. Around these men formed the nucleus of a botany movement, which included famous Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus; Philip Miller, bestselling author of "The Gardeners Dictionary"; and Joseph Banks and David Solander, two botanist explorers, who scoured the globe for plant life aboard Captain Cook's Endeavor. As they cultivated exotic blooms from around the world, they helped make Britain an epicenter of horticultural and botanical expertise.
Par williams maria le mardi, septembre 19 , It is , the Great War is long over and the next is yet to come. Amid billowing clouds of dust and information, the government 'Better Farming Train' slides through the wheat fields and small towns of Australia, bringing expert advice to those living on the land. The train is on a crusade to persuade the country that science is the key to successful farming, and that productivity is patriotic.
In the swaying cars an unlikely love affair occurs between Robert Pettergree, a man with an unusual taste for soil, and Jean Finnegan, a talented young seamstress with a hunger for knowledge. In an atmosphere of heady scientific idealism, they marry and settle in the impoverished Mallee with the ambition of proving that a scientific approach to cultivation can transform the land. But after seasons of failing crops, and with a new World War looming, Robert and Jean are forced to confront each other, the community they have inadvertently destroyed, and the impact of their actions on an ancient and fragile landscape.
Shot through with humour and a quiet wisdom, this haunting first novel vividly captures the hope and the disappointment of the era when it was possible to believe in the perfectibility of both nature and humankind. London Orbital is Iain Sinclair's voyage of discovery into the unloved outskirts of the city.
Stumbling upon converted asylums, industrial and retail parks, ring-fenced government institutions and lost villages, Sinclair discovers a Britain of the fringes, a landscape consumed by developers. London Orbital charts this extraordinary trek and round trip of the soul, revealing the country as you've never seen it before. Sentence for sentence, there is no more interesting writer at work in English' John Lanchester, Daily Telegraph 'A magnum opus, my book of the year.
I urge you to read it. In fact, if you're a Londoner and haven't read it by the end of next year, I suggest you leave' Will Self, Evening Standard 'A journey into the heart of darkness and a fascinating snapshot of who we are, lit by Sinclair's vivid prose.
I'm sure it will be read fifty years from now' J. For decades, 98 per cent of our DNA was written off as 'junk' on the grounds that it did not code for proteins. From rare genetic diseases to Down's Syndrome, from viral infections to the ageing process, only now are the effects and the vital functions of these junk regions beginning to emerge.
Scientists' rapidly growing knowledge of this often controversial field has already provided a successful cure for blindness and saved innocent people from death row via DNA fingerprinting, and looks set to revolutionise treatment for many medical conditions including obesity. From Nessa Carey, author of the acclaimed The Epigenetics Revolution, this is the first book for a general readership on a subject that may underpin the secrets of human complexity - even the very origins of life on earth.
Want to grow food but have nothing larger than a balcony, windowsill or a piece of wall? No problem! This is a gardening book with a difference. It will help you to grow your own fruit, vegetables, herbs and even mushrooms in small spaces in the most ecological way possible.
Edible Cities shows you why the urban landscape can be a great place for permaculture.
Let be a controlled one-dimensional standard Brownian motion starting from. The problem of optimally controlling until for the first time is solved explicitly in a particular case. The maximal value that the instantaneous reward given for survival in can take is determined. Consider the one-dimensional controlled standard Brownian motion process defined by the stochastic differential equation where is the control variable, , and is a standard Brownian motion. Assume that and define the first passage time Our aim is to find the control that minimizes the expected value of the cost function where and are positive constants. In the case when , Lefebvre and Whittle [ 1 ] were able to find the optimal control by making use of a theorem in Whittle [ 2 , page ] that enables us to express the value function in terms of a mathematical expectation for the uncontrolled Brownian motion obtained by setting in 1.

It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. This text is designed for a one-semester course on Probability and Statistics. The exposition unfolds systematically from an introductory chapter to such topics as random variables and vectors, stochastic processes, estimation, testing and regression.
This book is based mainly on the lecture notes that I have been using since for a course on applied probability for engineers that I teach at the Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal. This course is given to electrical, computer and physics engineering students, and is normally taken during the second or third year of their curriculum. Therefore, we assume that the reader has acquired a basic knowledge of differential and integral calculus. The main objective of this textbook is to provide a reference that covers the topics that every student in pure or applied sciences, such as physics, computer science, engineering, etc.

Where the Crawdads Sing is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heart-breaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder. Includes new renditions of some of the Bee Gees' biggest hits, that Barry Gibb has re-recorded with several of the world's biggest country artists. Out of stock. The main intended audience for this book is undergraduate students in pure and applied sciences, especially those in engineering.
Профессор вертел кольцо в пальцах и изучал надпись. - Читайте медленно и точно! - приказал Джабба. - Одна неточность, и все мы погибли. Фонтейн сурово взглянул на. Уж о чем о чем, а о стрессовых ситуациях директор знал .
ME TOO, что означало: Я. Беккер расхохотался. Он дожил до тридцати пяти лет, а сердце у него прыгало, как у влюбленного мальчишки. Никогда еще его не влекло ни к одной женщине. Изящные европейские черты лица и карие глаза делали Сьюзан похожей на модель, рекламирующую косметику Эсте Лаудер. Худоба и неловкость подростка бесследно исчезли. С годами она приобрела гибкость и грацию.
Больше ему никто не помешает. В двенадцати тысячах миль от этого места Токуген Нуматака в полной растерянности застыл у окна своего кабинета. Сигара умами безжизненно свисала изо рта. Сделка всей его жизни только что распалась - за каких-то несколько минут. Стратмор продолжал спуск.
Он не хотел, чтобы это зашло так далеко, - говорила она. - Он хотел нас спасти. Но снова и снова он протягивал руку, так, чтобы люди обратили внимание на кольцо.
Увы, Мидж платили за то, чтобы она задавала вопросы, и Бринкерхофф опасался, что именно с этой целью она отправится прямо в шифровалку. Пора готовить резюме, подумал Бринкерхофф, открывая дверь. - Чед! - рявкнул у него за спиной Фонтейн. Директор наверняка обратил внимание на выражение глаз Мидж, когда она выходила. - Не выпускай ее из приемной.
ГЛАВА 89 Лучи утреннего солнца едва успели коснуться крыш Севильи и лабиринта узких улочек под. Колокола на башне Гиральда созывали людей на утреннюю мессу. Этой минуты ждали все жители города. Повсюду в старинных домах отворялись ворота, и люди целыми семьями выходили на улицы. Подобно крови, бегущей по жилам старого квартала Санта-Крус, они устремлялись к сердцу народа, его истории, к своему Богу, своему собору и алтарю.
Линейная мутация, - простонал коммандер. - Танкадо утверждал, что это составная часть кода. - И он безжизненно откинулся на спинку стула.
Он молился не об избавлении от смерти - в чудеса он не верил; он молился о том, чтобы женщина, от которой был так далеко, нашла в себе силы, чтобы ни на мгновение не усомнилась в его любви. Он закрыл глаза, и воспоминания хлынули бурным потоком. Он вспомнил факультетские заседания, лекции - все то, что заполняло девяносто процентов его жизни. Вспомнил о Сьюзан. Это были простые воспоминания: как он учил ее есть палочками, как они отправились на яхте к Кейп-Коду.
Уже теряя сознание, она рванулась к свету, который пробивался из приоткрытой двери гостиничного номера, и успела увидеть руку, сжимающую пистолет с глушителем. Яркая вспышка - и все поглотила черная бездна. ГЛАВА 40 Стоя у двери Третьего узла, Чатрукьян с безумным видом отчаянно пытался убедить Хейла в том, что с ТРАНСТЕКСТОМ стряслась беда. Сьюзан пробежала мимо них с одной только мыслью - как можно скорее предупредить Стратмора. Сотрудник лаборатории систем безопасности схватил ее за руку.
Отключи ТРАНСТЕКСТ. Давай выбираться отсюда. Внезапно Стратмор сбросил оцепенение.
У него счастливая миури - счастливая судьба.
ГЛАВА 10 - Энсей Танкадо мертв? - Сьюзан почувствовала подступившую к горлу тошноту. - Вы его убили. Вы же сказали… - Мы к нему пальцем не притронулись, - успокоил ее Стратмор. - Он умер от разрыва сердца. Сегодня утром звонили из КОМИНТа.
Сьюзан пойдет со. А вы останетесь. - Мне неприятно тебе это говорить, - сказал Стратмор, - но лифт без электричества - это не лифт.
Она изучала записку. Хейл ее даже не подписал, просто напечатал свое имя внизу: Грег Хейл. Он все рассказал, нажал клавишу PRINT и застрелился.
