    This book compiles a series of case studies derived from archaeological excavation in Greek cultural contexts in the Mediterranean (ca. 800-100 B.C), addressing the current state of the field, the goals and direction of Greek archaeology, and its place in archaeological thought and practice. Overviews of archaeological sites and analyses of assemblages and contexts explore how new forms of data; methods of data recovery and analysis; and sampling strategies have affected the discourse in classical archaeology and the range of research questions and strategies at our disposal. Recent excavations and field practices are steering the way that we approach Greek cultural landscapes and form broader theoretical perspectives, while generating new research questions and interpretive frameworks that in turn affect how we sample sites, collect and study material remains, and ultimately construct the archaeological record. The book confronts the implications of an integrated dialogue between realms of data and interpretive methodologies, addressing how reengagement with the site, assemblage, or artifact, from the excavation context can structure the way that we link archaeological and systemic contexts in classical archaeology.

    In historical and cultural studies, the Early Modern Age has developed a profile of its own. The book series Frhe Neuzeit (Early Modern Age) publishes editions, monographs and collected volumes advancing fundamental research in the field. It does not seek to produce wide-ranging overviews, premature syntheses or pretentious constructions but takes the long route of detailed work and the exploration of submerged traditional linkages. Particular emphasis is placed on studies which transcend the boundaries of individual disciplines.

    Catastrophic scenarios dominate our contemporary mindset. Catastrophic events and predictions have spurred new interest in re-examining the history of earlier disasters and the social and conceptual resources they have mobilized. The essays gathered in this volume reconsider the history and theory of different catastrophes and their aftermath. The emphasis is on the need to distance this process of reconsideration from previous teleological representations of catastrophes as an endpoint, and to begin considering their "operative" aspects, which unmask the nature of social and political structures. Among the essays in this volume are analyses, by leading scholars in their respective fields, concerning the role of catastrophes in theology, in the history of industrial accidents, in theory of history, in the history of law, in "catastrophe films", in the history of cybernetics, in post-Holocaust discussions of reparations, and in climate change.
    Honorary editor: Ren Dirven The series Applications of Cognitive Linguistics (ACL) welcomes book proposals from any domain where the theoretical insights developed in Cognitive Linguistics (CL) have been (or could be) fruitfully applied. In the past thirty-five years, the CL movement has articulated a rich and satisfying view of language around a small number of foundational principles. The first one argues that language faculties do not constitute a separate module of cognition, but emerge as specialized uses of more general cognitive abilities. The second principle emphasises the symbolic function of language. The grammar of individual languages (including the lexicon, morphology, and syntax) can be exclusively described as a structured inventory of conventionalized symbolic units. The third principle states that meaning is equated with conceptualization. It is subjective, anthropomorphic, and crucially incorporates humans' experience with their bodies and the world around them. Finally, CL's Usage-Based conception anchors the meaning of linguistic expressions in the rich soil of their social usage. Consequently, usage-related issues such as frequency and entrenchment contribute to their semantic import. Taken together, these principles provide researchers in different academic fields with a powerful theoretical framework for the investigation of linguistic issues in the specific context of their particular disciplines. The primary focus of ACL is to serve as a high level forum for the result of these investigations.
    Mit den Verfassungsdokumenten Haitis von den Anfngen bis zur Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts liegt als Band 10 des Amerika-Teils der Reihe Verfassungen der Welt eine weiter verfassungshistorisch bedeutsame Edition vor. In der Folge der amerikanischen und der franzsischen Revolutionen entstanden hier die ersten modernen Verfassungstexte auf dem amerikanischen Doppelkontinent auerhalb der Vereinigten Staaten, und die Revolution in Haiti von 1791 bis 1804 fhrte zur Grndung der ersten unabhngigen Nation Lateinamerikas. Die nun aufgelegte Edition bercksichtigt erstmalig alle Verfassungstexte dieser Zeit und erlaubt daher einen einzigartigen Einblick in die frhe Verfassungsgeschichte Haitis. Die Sammlung bercksichtigt dabei Entwrfe, Verfassungen und Verfassungsnderungen aus drei verschiedenen Zeitabschnitten. Aus der Zeit unmittelbar nach der franzsischen aber vor der haitianischen Revolution liegen zwei Entwrfe vor. Dem schlieen sich Dokumente vielfltigsten Charakters an, deren vorlufiger Endpunkt die republikanische Verfassung von 1816 markiert. Nach einer lngeren Phase relativer politischer und konstitutioneller Stabilitt waren schlielich die 1840er Jahre erneut von groen politischen Umwlzungen geprgt, die ihren Ausdruck auch in ganz unterschiedlichen Entwrfen und Verfassungen fanden. Diese Verfassungstexte dokumentieren sowohl Kontinuitt als auch Wandel. Neben der Kodifizierung der Prinzipien des modernen Konstitutionalismus nahm dabei die Wahrung der Unabhngigkeit Haitis, zunchst auch gegenber Frankreich, eine zentrale Position ein. Den individuellen Rechten wurden, jenseits der kategorischen Abschaffung der Sklaverei, ganz unterschiedliche Gewichtungen verliehen, wie auch verschiedene Staatsformen Republik, Monarchie, Empire in den Dokumenten dieser Epoche verankert wurden. Die vorliegende Sammlung bercksichtigt bislang nur schwer zugngliche haitianische Erstausgaben als Editionsgrundlagen. Auf dieser Basis rekonstruierten die Herausgeber des Bandes die authentischen Verfassungstexte. Der Band korrigiert und erweitert damit den bislang zugnglichen Korpus zeitgenssischer franzsischer Editionen oder die klassischen Sammlungen von Janvier und Pradine. Ebenfalls enthalten ist eine umfassende Einfhrung in die Verfassungsgeschichte Haitis bis 1849 mit einer in sie eingebetteten Analyse der hier vorgestellten Quellentexte.
    More than 20 years of experience in molecular structure generation, from conceptualization through to applications Innovative, interdisciplinary text demonstrating example queries with software packages such as MOLGEN-online Detailed explanations on establishing QSPRs and QSARs as well as structure elucidation using mass spectrometry and structure generation. Aims and Scope This work provides an introduction to mathematical modeling of molecules and the resulting applications (structure generation, structure elucidation, QSAR/QSPR etc.). Most chemists have experimented with some software that represents molecules in an electronic form, and such models and applications are of increasing interest in diverse and growing fields such as drug discovery, environmental science and metabolomics. Furthermore, structure generation remains the only way to systematically create molecules that are not (yet) present in a database. This book starts with the mathematical theory behind representing molecules, explaining chemical concepts in mathematical terms and providing exercises that can be completed online. The later chapters cover applications of the theory, with detailed explanations on QSPR and QSAR investigations and finally structure elucidation combining mass spectrometry and structure generation. This book is aimed in particular at the users of structure generation methods and corresponding techniques, but also for those interested in teaching and learning mathematical chemistry, and for software designers in chemoinformatics.
    The series is devoted to the publication of monographs and high-level textbooks in mathematics, mathematical methods and their applications. Apart from covering important areas of current interest, a major aim is to make topics of an interdisciplinary nature accessible to the non-specialist. The works in this series are addressed to advanced students and researchers in mathematics and theoretical physics. In addition, it can serve as a guide for lectures and seminars on a graduate level. The series de Gruyter Studies in Mathematics was founded ca. 30 years ago by the late Professor Heinz Bauer and Professor Peter Gabriel with the aim to establish a series of monographs and textbooks of high standard, written by scholars with an international reputation presenting current fields of research in pure and applied mathematics. While the editorial board of the Studies has changed with the years, the aspirations of the Studies are unchanged. In times of rapid growth of mathematical knowledge carefully written monographs and textbooks written by experts are needed more than ever, not least to pave the way for the next generation of mathematicians. In this sense the editorial board and the publisher of the Studies are devoted to continue the Studies as a service to the mathematical community. Please submit any book proposals to Niels Jacob .

    As in the field of "Invariant Distances and Metrics in Complex Analysis" there was and is a continuous progress this is now the second extended edition of the corresponding monograph. This comprehensive book is about the study of invariant pseudodistances (non-negative functions on pairs of points) and pseudometrics (non-negative functions on the tangent bundle) in several complex variables. It is an overview over a highly active research area at the borderline between complex analysis, functional analysis and differential geometry. New chapters are covering the Wu, Bergman and several other metrics. The book considers only domains in C n and assumes a basic knowledge of several complex variables. It is a valuable reference work for the expert but is also accessible to readers who are knowledgeable about several complex variables. Each chapter starts with a brief summary of its contents and continues with a short introduction. It ends with an "Exercises" and a "List of problems" section that gathers all the problems from the chapter. The authors have been highly successful in giving a rigorous but readable account of the main lines of development in this area.

    Sudokurtsel sind heute weltweit bekannt und beliebt. Die Lsungen, also die ausgefllten Sudokus, wrdigt der Ratende kaum eines Blicks. Gleichwohl sind die Sudokus fr den Mathematiker als kombinatorische Objekte von hohem Interesse. Das Buch zeigt, welche enorme Vielfalt und Komplexitt sich bei genauer Betrachtung erschliet, um zugleich mit begrifflichen Ordnungsprinzipien die Schnheit der Phnomene und ihrer Zusammenhnge in der riesigen Sudokumenge aufzuzeigen. Die Sudokus teilen sich auf in die algebraischen und, in berwiegender Mehrheit, die transzendenten Sudokus. Whrend die algebraischen gut erforscht sind und vollstndig klassifiziert werden, sind die transzendenten konkret schwer zu erfassen. Aber es zeigt sich, dass alle Sudokus eine gewisse DNA besitzen, bestehend aus einem Satz von neuartigen Graphen, den Dominographen. Die transzendenten erweisen sich als stark singulr. Die algebraischen mit hinreichend regulren Anteilen bilden Clans verwandter Sudokus, die durch einen gewissen Schaltprozess erzeugt werden. Diese Clans erreichen Anzahlen von 1 bis 5000 Exemplaren. Das Buch enthlt einige offene Probleme, die zur Lsung einladen.

    Ab 1933 wurden Tausende von Menschen vom nationalsozialistischen Regime ins Exil getrieben. Fr viele deutschsprachige Knstler und Schriftsteller wurde Paris vorbergehend zur Hauptstadt. Die Archive dieser Exilanten wurden zu "displaced objects", verstreut, geraubt, verschleppt, oft zerstrt, aber auch hufig bewahrt. Im Zentrum des Buches steht die Auswertung unbekannten Quellenmaterials, das seit Kriegsende im Moskauer Sonderarchiv/RGVA lagert und das neue Einblicke in die Aktivitten der deutschsprachigen Emigration der dreiiger Jahre in Paris und Europa erlaubt. Im Rahmen der aktuellen Debatte um deplatzierte Kulturgter und Restitution versucht der Band damit auch einen transnationalen, interdisziplinren Wissenschaftsdialog zu erffnen.
    Touch is a fundamental element of dance. The (time) forms and contact zones of touch are means of expression both of self-reflexivity and the interaction of the dancers. Liberties and limits, creative possibilities and taboos of touch convey insights into the aisthesis' of the different forms of dance: into their dynamics and communicative structure, as well as into the production and regulation of affects. Touching and Being Touched assembles seventeen interdisciplinary papers focusing on the question of how forms and practices of touch are connected with the evocation of feelings. Are these feelings evoked in different ways in tango, Contact improvisation, European and Japanese contemporary dance? The contributors to this volume (dance, literature, and film scholars as well as philosophers and neuroscientists) provide in-depth discussions of the modes of transfer between touch and being touched. Drawing on the assumptions of various theories of body, emotion, and senses, how can we interpret the processes of tactile touch and of being touched emotionally? Is there a specific spectrum of emotions activated during these processes (within both the spectator and the dancer)? How can the relationship of movement, touch, and emotion be analyzed in relation to kinesthesia and empathy?
