An atlas of the smaller maps in orientable and nonorientable surfaces by D. M Jackson( Book )

18 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An Atlas of the Smaller Maps in Orientable and Nonorientable Surfaces is the first book to provide complete collections of maps along with their vertex and face partitions, number of rootings, and an index number for cross-referencing. It provides an explanation of axiomatization and encoding, and serves as an introduction to maps as a combinatorial structure. The Atlas lists the maps first by genus and number of edges, and gives the embeddings of all graphs with at most five edges in orientable surfaces, thus presenting the genus distribution for each graph."--Jacket

Cardiff singer of the world 2001( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the 10th biennial Cardiff Singer of the World Competition. The competition is now recognised as one of the leading events of its kind in the world. Past winners have included Karita Matilla and Dmitri Hvorostovksy. The 2001 finalists were Natalie Christie (Australia), Marius Brenciu (Romania), Ekaterina Semenchuk (Russia), Markus Bruck (Germany) and Elina Garanca (Latvia). The final winner was Marius Brenciu (Romania), who also won the Song Prize. Previous competitions also available."--Alexander Street, resource website
Karita and Dmitri in Cardiff( Visual )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two of the most successful and internationally renowned winners of the prestigious Cardiff Singer of the World competition return to the Welsh capital for a spectacular gala concert. Karita Mattila won the first competition in 1983 - in fact she was the first singer to sing in the very first round. In 1989, Dmitri Hvorostovsky won one of the most hotly contested competitions, which became known as the battle of the baritones (a young Bryn Terfel won the lieder prize that year). This concert is a celebration of the competition, with arias and duets from these sensational performers. Accompanied by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and conducted by Richard Hickox, the repertoire includes extracts from Dvorak's Rusalka, Verdi's Rigoletto and Aida, and works by Puccini, Bellini, Mussorgsky, Tchaikovsky and Mozart."--Alexander Street, resource website
Poppea by Claudio Monteverdi( Visual )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on David Alden's award-winning production for Welsh National Opera, this clever, contemporary treatment of Monteverdi's Venetian masterpiece, L'Incoronazione di Poppea, follows the successful soap-style TV adaptations of The Vampyr and The Marriage of Figaro. Each episode begins with a 'Previously on Poppea' round-up of the action so far and the plot has all the ingredients of every good soap: lust, power, greed, corruption, intrigue, revenge, characters one loves to hate and a bit of cross-dressing thrown in for good measure. The setting is ancient Rome and focuses on the schemes of the Emperor Nero and his ambitious mistress, Poppea, to crown her Empress. Sung in Italian and recorded in digital widescreen."--Alexander Street, resource website

An introduction to quantum and Vassiliev knot invariants by D. M Jackson( )

4 editions published in 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an accessible introduction to knot theory, focussing on Vassiliev invariants, quantum knot invariants constructed via representations of quantum groups, and how these two apparently distinct theories come together through the Kontsevich invariant. Consisting of four parts, the book opens with an introduction to the fundamentals of knot theory, and to knot invariants such as the Jones polynomial. The second part introduces quantum invariants of knots, working constructively from first principles towards the construction of Reshetikhin-Turaev invariants and a description of how these arise through Drinfeld and Jimbo's quantum groups. Its third part offers an introduction to Vassiliev invariants, providing a careful account of how chord diagrams and Jacobi diagrams arise in the theory, and the role that Lie algebras play. The final part of the book introduces the Konstevich invariant. This is a universal quantum invariant and a universal Vassiliev invariant, and brings together these two seemingly different families of knot invariants. The book provides a detailed account of the construction of the Jones polynomial via the quantum groups attached to sl(2), the Vassiliev weight system arising from sl(2), and how these invariants come together through the Kontsevich invariant

The use of automatically-obtained keyword classifications for information retrieval; final report by Karen Sparck Jones( Book )

6 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report summarizes the work carried out on the automatic construction of keyword classifications and their use in information retrieval. It discusses the possible characteristics of such classifications, and potential ways of using them; and describes the various approaches to classification that were considered in terms of an overall frame of reference in which several types of classification are distinguished. The result of experiments using a collection of documents and test requests obtained from the Aslib Cranfield project are presented, from which it can be concluded that automatic classifications, which lead to noticeable improvements in retrieval performance over those obtainable with unclassified terms, can be set up.
