The cult of nothingness : the philosophers and the Buddha by Roger-Pol Droit( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and French and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cet essai analyse la réception par les philosophes occidentaux de la première moitié du XIXe siècle tels Hegel et Renan, de grands concepts du bouddhisme comme le néant, puis étudie les points de jonction entre les notions bouddhistes d'oubli de soi et de néant critiqués par les Occidentaux et les courants nihilistes se développant alors en Occident avec la montée de l'athéisme
The divine guide in early Shiʻism : the sources of esotericism in Islam by Mohammad Ali Amir-Moezzi( Book )

5 editions published between 1994 and 2016 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Imam, the Divine Guide, is the central point around which the Shi'ite religion turns. The power of Shi'ism comes from the actions of the Imam. This title is reserved exclusively for the sucessors of the prophets in their mission. The author shows that from the beginning of Shi'ite Islam until the tenth century, the Imam was primarily a master of knowledge with supernatural powers, not a jurist theologian. The Imam is the threshold through which God and the creatures communicate. He is thus a cosmic necessity, the key and the center of the universal economy of the sacred. The author presents Shi'ism as a religion founded on double dimensions where the role of the leader remains constantly central: perpetual initiation into divine secrets and continued confrontation with anti-initiation forces. Without esotericism, exotericism loses its meaning. Early Imamism is an esoteric doctrine. Historically, then, at the beginning of esotericism in Islam, we find an initiatory, mystical, and occultist doctrine. This is the first book to systematically explore the immense literature attributed to the Imams themselves in order to recover the authentic original vision. It restores an essential source of esotericism in the world of Islam. -- Back cover
The autobiography of the Moroccan Sufi Ibn Ajiba by Aḥmad ibn Muḥammad Ibn ʻAjībah( Book )

Two treatises on the oneness of existence by the Moroccan Sufi Aḥmad ibn ʻAjība (1747-1809) by Aḥmad ibn Muḥammad Ibn ʻAjībah( Book )

Averroes : a rationalist in Islam by Roger Arnaldez( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through a combination of biography and analyses of Averroes' various commentaries on Aristotle and his theological treatises, Arnaldez argues that Averroes deserves a higher place in Muslim intellectual history than he now holds

Maximum-likelihood estimators for the time and frequency differences of arrival of cyclostationary digital communications signals by David Streight( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Advanced techniques have been employed for decades in the location of emitted communications signals. The use of cyclostationary maximum-likelihood estimators (MLE) applied to time different of arrival (TDOA) and frequency difference of arrival (FDOA) techniques for target emitter location is a newly developed approach. This dissertation provides an introduction to traditional TDOA and FDOA methods and the underlying cyclostationary theory of pseudo-random signals. A survey of current cyclostationary TDOA and FDOA methods, the description of new maximum likelihood estimators (MLEs) and descriptions of Monte Carlo simulations follow this. By comparing performance results to those of the Complex Ambiguity Function (CAF), it is shown that the new MLE(s) outperform the CAF in nearly all cases. Also, by comparison to the Cramer-Rao lower bound, the new MLE(s) provide a hint of the ultimate power of cyclostationary techniques over stationary techniques, exceeding this stationary theoretical lower bound on performance in many cases. Finally, the new MLE(s) perform comparably in the measurement of TDOA to those cyclostationary algorithms previously derived, when adjustments are made for the different signal environments used in the heritage work
Application of Cyclostationary Signal Selectivity to the Carry-On Multi-Platform GPS Assisted Time Difference of Arrival System by David Streight( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Traditional methods of time difference of arrival (TDOA) determination suffer significantly in environments fraught with co-channel interference and low signal to noise ratios. Cyclostationary signal processing techniques offer solutions to the shortcomings of the traditional TDOA methods. Specifically, the Spectral Coherence Alignment (SPECCOA) method of TDOA determination, developed by the Mission Research Corp. and Statistical Signal Processing Inc., performs exceptionally in very poor signal to noise ratio environments. The Applied Research Lab at the University of Texas at Austin (ARL:UT) has developed a prototype TDOA system, the Carry-on Multi-platform GPS Assisted Time Difference of Arrival System for the Naval Information Warfare Activity. It currently utilizes a traditional complex ambiguity function (CAF) to determine the TDOA(s) between multiple observers and an ARL:UT developed closed form solution for the geolocation of the emitter. The work presented here takes the first step in applying SPECCOA to the ARL:UT system. Coding both SPECCOA and the ARL:UT closed form solution in MATLAB(Trademark) makes possible a quantitative comparison between the CAF and SPECCOA using ARL:UT real world test signals
