World trade law after neoliberalism : re-imagining the global economic order by Andrew Lang( Book )
23 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 212 libraries worldwide
It is often argued that there is an inherent tension between human rights law and the rules of free trade. This book explores the assumptions underlying this debate and argues that we need to reconsider them, focusing more on how expert knowledge and informal relationships shape trade law and its interaction with human rights
The glass axe by Andrew Lang( file )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
A king and queen who have long had everything they desire except a child, are finally graced with one but are immediately faced with tragedy. The queen dies on the day after her son is born, but not before she warns her husband to never let their son's feet touch the ground or else he will be immediately taken by an evil fairy. As he grew, everyone was careful to keep him from touching the ground - using wheelchairs, litters, and even horses, which he especially excelled at. One day when he was out riding, his saddle broke and he fell to the ground and immediately vanished. Under the control of the evil fairy, he is told he must obey her every command or else he will be severely punished. Her first order was for him to cut down all the trees in a forest using a glass axe -- and to NOT speak to a girl he might encounter on his way. Of course, the glass axe shattered at its first contact with the tree. Scared and hopeless, he curls up and falls asleep, only to be woken by the same girl he had been warned against. The girl is also imprisoned by the fairy, who is also her mother, and she offers to help the prince do whatever is asked of him, as long as he promised to help her in return. When the evil fairy discovers the two are helping one another, she is outraged and decides to take her anger out on both of them. The two are then left to try to escape and outwit the evil fairy on their quest to be free
The casimir effect by Andrew Lang( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
This thesis contains several quantum field theoretic calculations using both the massless scalar field and the electromagnetic field. The main result being the calculation of the expectation of the energy density in the vacuum region for the geometry in which half of space is filled by a non-dispersive dielectric of constant susceptibility and the other half of space is vacuum. As we approach the surface of the dielectric the expectation of the energy density is found to diverge. In the final Chapter of this dissertation we prove that, under physically reasonable conditions, the quantum field theory representations for certain current models of dispersive dielectrics remain the same as that for the free electromagnetic field in vacuum. This is good news for the theories discussed
Financial services in EU trade agreements ( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
This document prepared by Policy Department A for the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee (ECON) provides an overview of rules concerning trade in financial services in a range of recent preferential trade agreements (PTA) to which the EU is a party, in view of ongoing negotiations with the US over the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). EU Member States are collectively the world's largest exporters of financial services, and the sector is of strategic importance in the EU's trade policy. In its trade agreements with Korea, Singapore, Colombia/Peru, Central America and CARIFORUM, and its ongoing negotiations with Canada, the EU has sought and obtained considerable concessions in the sector which go beyond those agreed multilaterally in the WTO
Improvement of speckle-tracked freehand 3-D ultrasound through the use of sensor fusion by Andrew Lang( Book )
2 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Freehand 3-D ultrasound (US) using a 2-D US probe has the advantage over conventional 3-D probes of being able to collect arbitrary 3-D volumes at a lower cost. Traditionally, generating a volume requires external tracking to record the US probe position. An alternative means of tracking the US probe position is through speckle tracking. Ultrasound imaging has the advantage that the speckle inherent in all images contains relative position information due to the decorrelation of speckle over distance. However, tracking the position of US images using speckle information alone suffers from drifts caused by tissue inconsistencies and overall lack of accuracy. This thesis presents two novel methods of improving the accuracy of speckle-tracked 3-D US through the use of sensor fusion. The first method fuses the speckle-tracked US positions with those measured by an electromagnetic (EM) tracker. Measurements are combined using an unscented Kalman filter (UKF). The fusion is able to reduce drift errors as well as to eliminate high-frequency jitter noise from the EM tracker positions. Such fusion produces a smooth and accurate 3-D reconstruction superior to those using the EM tracker alone. The second method involves the registration of speckle-tracked 3-D US volumes to preoperative CT volumes. We regard registration combined with speckle tracking as a form of sensor fusion. In this case, speckle tracking is used in the registration to generate an initial position for each US image. To improve the accuracy of the US-to-CT registration, the US volume is registered to the CT volume by creating individual US "sub-volumes", each consisting of a small section of the entire US volume. The registration proceeds from the beginning of the US volume to the end, registering every sub-volume. The work is validated through spine phantoms created from clinical patient CT data as well as an animal study using a lamb cadaver. Using this technique, we are able to successfully register a speckle-tracked US volume to a CT volume with excellent accuracy. As a by-product of accurate registration, any drift from the speckle tracking is eliminated and the freehand 3-D US volume is improved

Financial services liberalisation and TiSA : implications for EU Free Trade Agreements ( file )
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
With 23 participating countries, including all of the world’s largest financial centres, covering the vast bulk of global financial services trade, the TiSA negotiations on financial services trade are strategically important for the EU. They are likely to deliver commitments and rules, which go significantly beyond the GATS package negotiated over two decades ago – and to extend their umbrella to a greater range of countries. In addition, the level of market access commitments ultimately incorporated into TiSA will set a new benchmark and reference point for future EU FTA negotiations. Depending on the outcome of remaining negotiations, the TiSA may also establish influential new and consolidated texts on such matters as data transfer, forced localisation, source code, regulatory transparency, and domestic regulation
The orange fairy book : illustrated 30 stories by Andrew Lang( file )
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The children who read fairy books, or have fairy books read to them, do not read prefaces, and the parents, aunts, uncles, and cousins, who give fairy books to their daughters, nieces, and cousins, leave prefaces unread. For whom, then, are prefaces written? When an author publishes a book 'out of his own head,' he writes the preface for his own pleasure. After reading over his book in print--to make sure that all the 'u's' are not printed as 'n's,' and all the 'n's' as 'u's' in the proper names--then the author says, mildly, in his preface, what he thinks about his own book, and what he means it to prove--if he means it to prove anything--and why it is not a better book than it is. But, perhaps, nobody reads prefaces except other authors; and critics, who hope that they will find enough in the preface to enable them to do without reading any of the book. This appears to be the philosophy of prefaces in general, and perhaps authors might be more daring and candid than they are with advantage, and write regular criticisms of their own books in their prefaces, for nobody can be so good a critic of himself as the author--if he has a sense of humour. If he has not, the less he says in his preface the better. These Fairy Books, however, are not written by the Editor, as he has often explained, 'out of his own head.' The stories are taken from those told by grannies to grandchildren in many countries and in many languages--French, Italian, Spanish, Catalan, Gaelic, Icelandic, Cherokee, African, Indian, Australian, Slavonic, Eskimo, and what not. The stories are not literal, or word by word translations, but have been altered in many ways to make them suitable for children.
