4.6 The Classification Theorem

In this subsection we state the Classification Theorem for surfaces, which classifies a surface in terms of its boundary number β, its orientability number ω and its Euler characteristic χ, each of which is a topological invariant – it is preserved under homeomorphisms.

Let us remind ourselves of these three numbers.

  • A surface may or may not have a boundary, and, if it does, then the boundary has finitely many disjoint pieces. The nu

1.2 Different arts and humanities subjects

If studying the arts and humanities helps us understand our culture so that we can live together more meaningfully, then why do we study particular subjects or ‘disciplines’ in our universities? You may be studying a single discipline: a language (ancient or modern), history, art, music, literature, film, law, religion, philosophy – and so forth; or some subjects combined, in multi- or inter-disciplinary studies. Why not the arts and humanities in general?

It is partly beca

Can simulations in VE support architects in solving complex design problems?
Building design is facing development of industrialization of the production on the one hand and more complex 'One of a Kind' products on the other. This will be for rebuilding of a large stock of existing buildings and what can be left to new production. In both cases the results of the design process have to be solid to guarantee a successful product. In both cases an integrated and careful design process is absolutely crucial. The demands on the built environment make the systems of buildings

7.3 Is the rate of reaction very slow?

If the equilibrium position is very favourable, then the reason why Reaction 8.1 fails to occur at 525 °C must be that its rate is very slow. Usually, a reasonable response would be to increase the temperature yet further, but the structure and economy of the car gives us little scope to do this. The alternative is to use a catalyst, which leaves the equilibrium constant unchanged, while speeding the reaction up.

Let us look at the changes that take place in the internal energy

1.11.1 Subject positions

In her analysis, Blackman is identifying a pattern in Diana's talk and relating it to other similar methods of self-representation found in our culture. It is worth thinking through this in more detail. One key claim of discourse researchers is that language positions people – discourse creates subject positions. What does this mean? To speak at all is to speak from a position (remember the discussion of footing in the previous section). Further than this, the positions or slots in c

On November 27, 2007 I presented our work on Open Notebook Science. I had a little more time to explain most aspects of our work to a scientific, but not necessarily a chemistry audience.

Near the end I did discuss some of our very recent results relating to our CombiUgi project and the synthesis of some compounds about to to be tested for

Summary

1 The visible matter in the Universe, stars and interstellar gas, is concentrated into galaxies, which are collections of ~1011 stars. The galaxies themselves are usually to be found in clusters with typically tens or hundreds of members. The clusters, in their turn, are loosely associated in superclusters.

2 Distances are estimated via a series of intercalibrated techniques, each overlapping with and extending further than the previous one. The principal stages are:

Morphological indicators of solar exposure
This paper investigates the relation between the shading condition and geometrical configuration of neighborhood-scale developments. It introduces a straightforward method for measuring shadow areas casted on buildings? roofs and facades ? in urban areas ? using digital 3D models. Employing this method for measuring shadow areas in nine neighborhoods in Jinan, China, at six different time points on summer and winter solstices ? a total of 54 sample measurements ? this study develops two regressi
