Byzantium and Venice : a study in diplomatic and cultural relations by Donald MacGillivray Nicol( Book )

33 editions published between 1988 and 2002 in English and Turkish and held by 688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book traces the diplomatic, cultural and commercial links between Constantinople and Venice from the foundation of the Venetian republic to the fall of the Byzantine Empire. It aims to show how, especially after the Fourth Crusade in 1204, the Venetians came to dominate first the Genoese and thereafter the whole Byzantine economy. At the same time the author points to those important cultural and, above all, political reasons why the relationship between the two states was always inherently unstable

Om den sidste kristne kejser i Byzans Konstantin XI (1405-1453)
Church and society in the last centuries of Byzantium by Donald MacGillivray Nicol( Book )

20 editions published between 1979 and 2008 in English and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Byzantines lived in a theocratic society. They were less ready than their western contemporaries to draw the line between things spiritual and things temporal, between Church and state. This book explores some of the characteristics of that society in the age of its decline and fall between the thirteenth and the fifteenth centuries. Though irremediably shattered by the effects of the Fourth Crusade in 1204, the Byzantine Empire found the will to reassert itself and to endure for another 250 years. Material recovery was hardly possible, but there was a remarkable reawakening of scholarship and of the spiritual life. The world's debt to some of the late Byzantine scholars is known to classicists and to students of the Italian Renaissance. The contribution of the latter-day saints of Byzantium, the hesychasts and scholars of the spirit, has been less publicized

A Multistage linear array assignment problem( Book )

4 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Implementation of certain algorithms on parallel computing architectures can involve partitioning contiguous elements into a fixed number of groups, each of which is to be handled by a single processor. It is desired to find an assignment of elements to processors that minimizes the sum of the maximum workloads experienced at each stage. This problem can be viewed as a multi-objective network optimization problem. Polynomially-bounded algorithms are developed for the case of two-stages, whereas the associated decision problem (for an arbitrary number of stages) is shown to be NP-complete. Heuristic procedures are therefore proposed and analyzed for the general problem. Computational experience with one of the exact problems, incorporating certain pruning rules, is presented for a variety of test problems. Empirical results also demonstrate that one of the heuristic procedures is especially effective in practice. (kr)
