Mathematics and computers in archaeology by Jim Doran( Book )
21 editions published between 1975 and 1977 in English and held by 664 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book is for students and practitioners of archaeology. It offers an introductory survey of all the applications of mathematical and statistical techniques to their work. These applications are increasingly concerned with computerized data classification and quantification, and their effect is to reduce the level of uncertainty in the interpretation of the evidence that time and chance have left. Any archaeologist wanting to find out what these new methods have to offer has hitherto been forced to search for information in the specialist handbooks, conference proceedings, and review articles of his own, and very often of other, disciplines. This book brings together the information conveniently together, so far as it pertains to archaeology, and permits an assessment of its relevance and quality." -- Provided by publisher

Agent-Based Modelling for Environmental Coalition Formation ( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Planned intervention to achieve stakeholder cooperation and coalition is essential for successful environmental management. Agent-based modelling on a computer has the potential to build a practical theory of intervention in this and related contexts. Potentially we can compare real intervention strategies with those an agent-based model suggests and hence obtain new insights and guidelines of practical value. But the technical problems of model building for this purpose are formidable. We explain and discuss these problems by reference to an example model specification framework, and seek ways forward. Insights obtained may be generalised to coalition formation in general

Erroll Garner no one can hear you read ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In a triumphant career that lasted forty years Erroll Garner pushed the playability of the piano to its limits, developed an international reputation, and made an indelible mark on the jazz world. And yet, his story has never been told. Until now. Atticus Brady's new film uses an astonishing array of archival materials interwoven with interviews with friends, family, and fellow musicians, and features commentary from Woody Allen; Ahmad Jamal; Tonight Show host Steve Allen; Erroll's sister, Ruth Garner Moore; pianist and arranger Dick Hyman; Columbia Records executive George Avakian; Erroll's bass player Ernest McCarty; Erroll's biographer Jim Doran; jazz journalist John Murph; dancer/choreographer Maurice Hines; and Erroll's daughter Kim Garner, who goes on the record about her father for the first time. The film explores Erroll's childhood in Pittsburgh; his meteoric rise in popularity while playing on 52nd street, New York's famed jazz epicenter; the origins of his most famous album (Concert By The Sea) and his most famous composition (Misty); his singular, virtuosic piano style; and his dynamic personality, both on and off the stage
