Discrete Inverse Problems: Insight and Algorithms

Per Christian Hansen

Cambridge University Press, 2010. First edition. Paperback. New. 17 X 25 cm. This acclaimed book introduces the practical treatment of inverse problems by means of numerical methods, with a focus on basic mathematical and computational aspects. To solve inverse problems, it demonstrates that insight about them and algorithms go hand in hand. Discrete Inverse Problems includes a number of tutorial exercises that give the reader hands-on experience with the methods, and challenges associated with the treatment of inverse problems. It includes carefully constructed illustrative computed examples and figures that highlight the important issues in the theory and algorithms. This book is written for graduate students, researchers, and professionals in engineering and other areas that depend on solving inverse problems with noisy data. It aims to provide readers with enough background that they can solve simple inverse problems and read more advanced literature on the subject. • Careful constructive illustrative computed examples enhance understanding • Tutorial exercises provide practice • The text can either act as a stand-alone guide to elementary inverse problem solving, or as a preparatory volume for those wishing to tackle more advanced literature Contents Preface; List of symbols; 1. Introduction and motivation; 2. Meet the Fredholm integral equation of the first kind; 3. Getting to business: discretizations of linear inverse problems; 4. Computational aspects: regularization methods; 5. Getting serious: choosing the regularization parameter; 6. Toward real-world problems: iterative regularization; 7. Regularization methods at work: solving real problems; 8. Beyond the 2-norm: the use of discrete smoothing norms; Appendix A. Linear algebra stuff; Appendix B. Symmetric Toeplitz-plus-Hankel matrices and the DCT; Appendix C. Early work on `Tikhonov regularization`; Bibliography; Index. Printed Pages: 226.

Globalisation, Labor Markets and Inequality in India

Dipak Majumdar,Sandip Sarkar

Routledge/Cambridge University Press, 2007. Softcover. New. The economic reforms in India which were initiated in the mid-1980s, albeit mildly, but gained momentum since the early 1990s, have undoubtedly accelerated the GDP growth rate, but their impact on poverty, inequality and employment have been controversial. This book examines in detail these aspects of post-reform India, and traces the changes and trends which these new developments have created. Providing an original analysis of unit-level data available from the quinquennial National Sample Survey, the Annual Survey of Industries and other basic data sources, the authors analyse and compare the results with other works written on the matter. While describing the overall situation for India, the book highlights regional differences, and studies the major sectors of agriculture, manufacturing and services. The important issue of labor market institutions, both in the organised and the unorganised sector, is considered as well as the possible adverse effects on employment growth. Since any reform of this framework must go hand in hand with more proactive state intervention in the informal sector in order to have any chance of political acceptance, some of the major initiatives in this area are critically explored. The book will be of great interest to development economists, labour economists and specialists in South Asian Studies. This book is based on the results of a collaborative research project undertaken at the Institute for Human Development (IHD), New Delhi, with support from the International Development Research Centre, Ottawa. Contents List of figures List of tables List of maps 1.

The Rainbow

D.H. Lawrence

Peacock/ Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd., 2002. First edition. Hardcover. New. Set in the rural midlands of England, The Rainbow chronicles the lives of three generations of the Brangwen family, conveying how their rural existence is gradually but profoundly changed by the influx of industry and urbanism. But it is far more ambitious than a family history. Using the language of religious experience, Lawrence shows the struggle of the individual human consciousness in facing an unknowable, infinite reality beyond the commonplace social self. The book is remarkable for its study of the recurrence of love and conflict` within the marriages it describes; for its attempt to capture the flux of human personality; and for its sense of a mystic procreative continuity within the rhythm of eternity both of the seasons and the Christian year. In spite of the view held by T.S. Eliot and reiterated by many contemporary critics, that in this novel is found the profoundest research into human nature , The Rainbow was banned by court order within six weeks of its publication in London in 1915 on grounds of obscenity. Today it is considered a brilliantly rendered work of art. This edition reprints the original, unexpurgated text Printed Pages: 528.

Jim Corbett

Oxford University Press, 2010. Soft cover. Near Fine. Most of Jim Corbetts books contain collections of stories that recount adventures tracking and shooting man-eaters in the Indian Himalaya. This volume, however, consists of a single story, often considered the most exciting of all Corbett"s jungle tales. He gives a carefully-detailed account of a notorious leopard that spread terror in the hills of the colonial United Provinces. This book gives an absorbing account of his prolonged and hard-won campaign against a single leopard, an animal which outdoes tigers in cunning and ferocity. Roaming over an area of 500 square miles, the Rudraprayag leopard brought terror to the inhabitants of Garhwal for eight years, and year after year all efforts to kill it failed. On and off, Jim Corbett stalked it during the last two years of its career, finally destroying it at the end of an uninterrupted ten week pursuit.

The Hindu Jajmani System: A socio-economic system interrelating members of Hindu village community in services

William Henricks Wiser

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., 1988. 3rd edition. Hardcover. New. 15 X 23 cm. Contents: Preface. Introduction. 1. Jajmani functional responsibilities in Karimpur. 2. Jajmani compensation and rights in Karimpur. 3. Disintegrating features of the Hindu Jajmani system. 4. Evaluation of the Hindu Jajmani system. ""The Hindu Jajmani System remains a fascinating subject for students of anthropology because of the complex Inter-change of services and goods between the various castes. Because there has been little else written regarding the economic aspects of caste and the steady demand for this book, it is reprinted in a third edition. ""This study is of the Jajmani system in a North India village and the author`s information comes from personal experiences and knowledge. The functional responsibilities are described in detail from the highest to the lowest caste. This includes every kind of service from religious instruction to entertainment by dancing girls. In return for these services appropriate compensation is given in the form of service and/or payment in cash or kind. Members of each caste are obliged to fulfil their duties and realize the rights. It they do not carry out these obligations the village can put pressure and see that they do so. Even grazing rights of animals feature in this system. The last two sections show how the Jajmani system has been disintegrating gradually, and discusses its advantages and disadvantages."" Printed Pages: 157.
