- In 1886 an archeologists named Arthur Evans discovered an ancient stone that was engraved with mysterious writings. Through continuous investigation and research Evans made a connection between the mysterious writing system and the Aegean empire of the ancient Minoans. Later Evans discovered another unique form of writing that was very similar to the first one he discovered. Evans called these forms of writing Linear A and Linear B. Linear A and B is a form of writing systems that were used by ancient Crete.... [tags: form of writing used in ancient Crete]

- Introduction to linear motion graphs The change of location of an object along a straight line and can be described using a single spatial dimension is called linear motion. It can be uniform or non-uniform, that is, constant velocity or variable velocity. The motion of particle can be described in terms of X with time T. A very good example for linear motion is a ball throwing down and up straightly. Plotting of graphs under linear motion is called Linear motion graphs. Here we study about two types of graphs as displacement-time graph and velocity-time graph.... [tags: Math]

- Abstract: Linear Feedback Shift Registers (LFSRs) are considered powerful methods for generating pseudo-random bits in cryptography algorithm applications. In this paper it is shown that the linear dependencies in the generated random bit sequences can be controlled by adding a chaotic logistic map to the LFSR’s systems. The structure of the LFSR’s output sequence in combination with a chaotic map is analyzed and proved to have at least as much uniformity than the corresponding set for the linear components individually....

- “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” -Pablo Picasso. This quote is pretty straightforward. It says how all children are artists and how they grow older are not an artist anymore. A child’s drawing can tell so much about what they are thinking and feeling about their surroundings. They see things differently from adults and teens because when they are drawing or doing some sort of art they are not told that it is a “bad picture” or what ever they are doing is “not right.” They don’t have a limit upon their thoughts and ideas, but when they grow up, they do....

- Through the readings that we have done thus far, the piece of art that I find most interesting is the "Palace Complex Knossos on Crete". What I find most interesting is not just its architecture as compared to its contemporaries in other regions, but in the culture of the people who occupied the complex, its history, and the myths that evolved from its ruins. Crete is an island located in the Aegean sea. It is located south of mainland Greece.... [tags: Minoan civilization, Knossos, Labyrinth, Linear B]

- We do not know who ruled Crete. This is due to the fact that a lot of the archaeological evidence on Crete has been destroyed. While some historians believe that Crete was ruled by a king, others believe that it was ruled by a group of priestesses.

- 3. LITERATURE STUDY 3.1. Historical context At the end of the 1950’s and during the 1960’s and 1970’s the idea of corridor development, both planned and unplanned, was actively studied and discussed among spatial planners, designers and scientists (e.g. by C.F.G. Whebell, George R. Collins, C. Doxiadis). Many of these practitioners and scholars also encountered the difficulty of visualising the dynamics of corridors and often referred to (earlier) schemes and designs of linear cities. A study on both the definition and visualisation of corridors in this time-period may contribute to the discussion on corridor development and urban networks....

- This report breaks down and compares key aspects of three separate ocean wave power generators: permanent-magnet tubular linear generators, hybrid air-wave turbine generators and wave tunnel generators. Each individual generator type is to be described and analyzed on topics such as a general background on design and functionality, applicable locations, costs and efficiency using research and diagrams to support explanations where necessary. Though these forms of power generation are not effective enough to serve as a substitute for fossil fuels entirely, they are capable of reducing human reliance on strictly fossil fuels and are thus a worthy subject to invest research into....

- ... The two main hitting styles are linear and rotational hitting. From 1920 to 1975, rotational hitting was mainly used. It was very popular back then because it allowed small players to hit the ball farther than normal. After that in the 70s and 80s, linear hitting came into play. In this time period many teams switched to Astroturf. This allowed the ball to roll two times faster in the outfield. Many players then focused using their hands to direct the ball into the gaps of the infield and outfield.... [tags: homeruns, mechanics in swinging the bat]

- Geometry in Art Most of the art that we see today uses some form of geometry. Sometimes we can visually see the shapes and other times we can’t. If we didn’t have geometry the art of today would be flat and scattered, making it unpleasing to look at. Due to the great works of Brunelleschi and Leonardo da Vinci the concepts of linear perspective and geometry were brought into art and resulted in geometry continuing in our art today. Filippo Brunelleschi was a “trained goldsmith who, in 1420, changed the course of the artistic renaissance in Florence in two large ways” (“BRUNELLESCHI and the Re-Discovery of Linear Perspective”)....

- What Is Polynomial Regression A polynomial is a mathematical expression that is a sum of more than one monomial (Wikipedia). A monomial can be a constant, or a variable (also called indeterminate). In a monomial, the coefficients should be involved with only the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and non-negative integer exponents (Wikipedia). For example, X2+5X-7 is a polynomial, and it is a quadratic one. Polynomial regression is the regression technique that tries to figure out the polynomial that fits the relationship of one dependent variable (Y) and one or more independent variables (X1, X2…)....

- A major change that has occurred in the development of film is the linearity of narrative. The history of film spans over one hundred years ago, with classical narrative emerging in Hollywood around the nineteen thirties. The classical narrative period had a strong emphasis on linearity and coherence, where characters where goal centred and consistent in personality and action. In the nineteen sixties a change began to emerge in Hollywood, with Breathless (Jean-Luc Godard, 1960) breaking the editing rules, and narrative coherence, with the introduction of jump cuts....

The standard deviation of gestation periods for smoking mothers is 0.0096 weeks more than the gestation period for non-smoking mothers. This is a very small number compared to the gestation period so it is not significant. The standard deviation of the data set is 2.30 which could be the average standard deviation of the gestation period. So, for a child from a mother who smokes, we would expect the birth weight to be less than that of a child from a non-smoking mother.... [tags: Arithmetic mean, Standard deviation, Infant]

These changes occur physically as the adolescent goes through puberty, as well as psychological changes where high emotional reactivity emerges, and social development is at its height (Casey, 2008). Adolescents are more likely than adults or children to engage in risky behaviour that can subsequently lead to death or illness by drunk driving, carrying weapons, using illegal drugs, and engaging in unprotected sex, which in turn can lead to STD’s and teenage pregnancies (Eaton, 2006)....

- Abstract. This paper describes a facial feature localizer framework that is capable of processing images rapidly while achieving high detection rates. There are three key contributions. The first is the introduction of a new vector space for image representation. Due to this definition, an m×n image consists of m vectors in an n-dimensional space. The second is proving that an image consists of observations set from similar distribution. The third contribution is proposing a one-to-one linear transform called the “Linear Principal Transform”, which allows extracting all features of image rapidly and efficiently....
