Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book Synopsis: Something old, something new, something borrowed…something blacker than the darkest night. Antiques dealer (and witch) Cosmo Saville adores his new husband, but his little white lies—and some very black magic—are about to bring his fairytale romance to an end. Someone is killing San Francisco's spellcasters—and the only person Cosmo can turn to—the man who so recently swore to love and cherish him—isn't taking his phone calls. The only magic Police Commissioner John Joseph Galbraith believes in is true love. Discovering he’s married to a witch—a witch with something alarmingly like magical powers—is nearly as bad as discovering the man he loved tricked and deceived him. John shoulders the pain of betrayal and packs his bags. But when he learns Cosmo is in the crosshairs of a mysterious and murderous plot, he knows he must do everything in in his mortal power to protect him. Till Death do them Part... With their relationship on the rocks, Cosmo and Commissioner Galbraith join forces to uncover the shadowy figure behind the deadly conspiracy… Can the star-crossed couple bring down a killer before the dark threat extinguishes true love’s flame?

Summary Book Review Two-Person Zero-Sum Games by Alan Washburn:
Download or read book Two-Person Zero-Sum Games written by Alan Washburn and published by Springer Science & Business Media. This book was released on 2013-11-29 with total page 199 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book Synopsis: Two-person zero-sum game theory deals with situations that are perfectly competitive—there are exactly two decision makers for whom there is no possibility of cooperation or compromise. It is the most fundamental part of game theory, and the part most commonly applied. There are diverse applications to military battles, sports, parlor games, economics and politics. The theory was born in World War II, and has by now matured into a significant and tractable body of knowledge about competitive decision making. The advent of modern, powerful computers has enabled the solution of many games that were once beyond computational reach. Two-Person Zero-Sum Games, 4th Ed. offers an up-to-date introduction to the subject, especially its computational aspects. Any finite game can be solved by the brute force method of enumerating all possible strategies and then applying linear programming. The trouble is that many interesting games have far too many strategies to enumerate, even with the aid of computers. After introducing ideas, terminology, and the brute force method in the initial chapters, the rest of the book is devoted to classes of games that can be solved without enumerating every strategy. Numerous examples are given, as well as an extensive set of exercises. Many of the exercises are keyed to sheets of an included Excel workbook that can be freely downloaded from the SpringerExtras website. This new edition can be used as either a reference book or as a textbook.

Summary Book Review Staging Detection by Isabel Stowell-Kaplan:
Download or read book Staging Detection written by Isabel Stowell-Kaplan and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2021-07-29 with total page 172 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book Synopsis: Staging Detection reveals how the new figure of the stage detective emerged in nineteenth-century Britain. The first book to explore the productive intersections between detection and performance across a range of Victorian plays, Staging Detection foregrounds the role of the stage detective in shaping important theatrical modes of the period, from popular melodrama to society comedy. Beginning in 1863 with Tom Taylor’s blockbuster play, The Ticket-of-Leave Man, the book criss-crosses London following the earliest performances of stage detectives. Centring the work of playwrights, novelists, critics and actors, from Sarah Lane and Horace Wigan to Wilkie Collins and Oscar Wilde, Staging Detection sheds new light on Victorian acting styles, furthers our understanding of melodrama, and resituates the famous Wildean dandy as a successor to the stage detective. Drawing on histories of masculinity and gender performance as well as developing scientific theory and nineteenth-century visual culture, Staging Detection shows how the earliest stage portrayals of the detective shaped broader Victorian debates concerning fraud, omniscience and earned authority. This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of theatre history, Victorian literature and popular culture – as well as anyone with an interest in the figure of the detective.

Summary Book Review Remote Sensing in Action by Enders A. Robinson:
Download or read book Remote Sensing in Action written by Enders A. Robinson and published by SEG Books. This book was released on 2014-08-01 with total page 374 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book Synopsis: Remote Sensing in Action: The Curious Case of Sherlock Holmes and Albert Einstein (SEG Geophysical Monograph Series No. 18) by Enders A. Robinson and Dean Clark questions a basic assumption of the scientific method — that new theories or experimental results are communicated effectively by traditional methods (e.g., presentations at professional meetings or publication in a peer-reviewed journal) — and suggests that the scientific method needs to be applied to the scientific method itself to find out if other styles of communication might work better. In a highly entertaining format, the book uses the enormously popular fictional characters created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to unravel and explain the historical underpinnings of remote sensing. The extended appendices guarantee that all of the science of remote sensing is included in this book of “scientific fiction.” The story covers more than 2000 years, beginning with Pythagoras in ancient Greece and ending with Einstein’s first article on relativity in 1905. Light-years beyond a traditional science textbook, this detective story set in 1905 will teach students of all ages about the exciting journey of scientific discovery.

Summary Book Review Social Science Quotations by Robert Merton:
Download or read book Social Science Quotations written by Robert Merton and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2018-04-27 with total page 437 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book Synopsis: Social Science Quotations has been prepared to meet an evident, unmet need in the literature of the social sciences. Writings on the lives and theories of individual social scientists abound, but there has been no fully documented collection of memorable quotations from the social sciences as a whole. The frequent use of quotations in scientific as well as literary writings that are mere summaries or paraphrases typically fail to capture the full force of formulations that have made quotations memorable. This book of quotations invites the further reading or rereading of the original texts, beyond the quotations themselves. Sills and Merton draw extensively upon the writings that constitute the historical core of the social sciences and social thought; those works with staying power often described as the "classical texts." Many quotations have been drawn from these classical texts because the quotations contain memorable ideas memorably expressed. Both consequential and memorable, these words have been quoted over the generations, entering into the collective memory of social scientists everywhere and at times diffusing into popular thought and into the vernacular as well. This book is useful to social scientists, anthropologists, economists, historians, political scientists, psychiatrists, psychologists, sociologists and statisticians, and for all who want to learn or verify memorable formulations and phrases concerning social thought and social theories. It is particularly useful for graduate students taking courses that examine the history of their discipline.

Summary Book Review Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle:
Download or read book Sherlock Holmes written by Arthur Conan Doyle and published by Wordsworth Editions. This book was released on 1996-04-29 with total page 1408 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book Synopsis: It is more than a century since the ascetic, gaunt and enigmatic detective, Sherlock Holmes, made his first appearance in A Study in Scarlet. From 1891, beginning with The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, the now legendary and pioneering Strand Magazine began serialising Arthur Conan Doyle's matchless tales of detection, featuring the incomparable sleuth patiently assisted by his doggedly loyal and lovably pedantic friend and companion, Dr Watson. The stories are illustrated by the remarkable Sydney Paget from whom our images of Sherlock Holmes and his world derive and who first equipped Holmes with his famous deerstalker hat. The literary cult of Sherlock Holmes shows no sign of fading with time as each new generation comes to love and revere the penetrating mind and ruthless logic which were the undoing of so many Victorian master criminals.

Download or read book In Bed with Sherlock Holmes written by Christopher Redmond and published by Dundurn. This book was released on 1984 with total page 207 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book Synopsis: In Bed with Sherlock Holmes provides a witty and well-researched discussion of the sexual elements in the Sherlock holmes stories, and in Conan Doyle's own life. An expert commentator on all things Victorian, Doyle also reflects that period's attitudes toward sex and erotic love. This commentary will make the Sherlock Holmes stories even more interesting and intriguing since Redmond uses published and unpublished articles, books and letters, as well as quotes from speeches given at meetings, to enliven the text and give a broad out-look to this unusual assessment of Doyle's best known stories. Each chapter opens with one of the original Sidney Paget illustrations. Bibliography. Index.
