Caciques and Cemí idols the web spun by Taíno rulers between Hispaniola and Puerto Rico by José R Oliver ( )
11 editions published in 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 1,131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Cemís are both portable artifacts and embodiments of persons or spirit, which the Taínos and other natives of the Greater Antilles (ca. AD 1000-1550) regarded as numinous beings with supernatural or magic powers. This volume takes a close look at the relationship between humans and other (non-human) beings that are imbued with cemí power, specifically within the Taíno inter-island cultural sphere encompassing Puerto Rico and Hispaniola. The relationships address the important questions of identity and personhood of the cemí icons and their human "owners" and the implications of cemí gift-givin

The archaeological, linguistic and ethnohistorical evidence for the expansion of Arawakan into northwestern Venezuela and northeastern Colombia by José R Oliver ( Book )
12 editions published between 1989 and 1993 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This dissertation provides a model of the prehistoric to proto-historic expansions of Arawakan-speaking groups into Northwestern Venezuela and Northeastern Colombia. It is based on research conducted in Coastal Falcon State. Venezuela between 1981 and 1983. Three independent data sets are analyzed: archaeology, lingustics and ethnohistory. Once the patterns of distribution are modeled for each domain independently, an evaluation is made of the degrees of correspondence between each model. The resulting integrated model of Arawakan expansion stands in sharp contrast to previous models. It is argued that an early Proto-Maipuran/Arawakan group expanded out of the Central Amazon into the Orinoco-Apure River confluence, reaching the area by 3600 B.C. and carrying an ancient Amazonian Polychrome Tradition. This expansion continued westward along the Apure and into the Llanos, splitting northward into Barquisimeto Plateau and into the Maracaibo Basin. The archaeological evidence correlated with this early movement is defined as the Marco-Tocuyanoid Tradition. By ca. 1200-900 B.C., the Macro-Tocuyanoid Tradition had already colonized the Lower Magdalena and the Rancheria valleys in Northeastern Colombia. The Marco-Tocuyarnoid Tradition survived until shortly after Conquest in the Lower Guajira, where the Arawakan-speaking Onoto, Paraujano and Guajiro inhabited at the time. An intermediate "stage" of Proto-Maipuran divergence and subsequent expansion is hypothesized to have taken place possibly as early as 1500 B.C. out of this, the Caquetio eventually emerged. Their ancestors expanded westward along the Apure and north into the Cojedes river (Upper Llanos). Along the way they developed a ceramic style of the Macro-Dabajuroid Tradition. By at least A.D. 700/800, two related by distinct archaeological traditions emerged. The Dabajuroid Tradition and the Tierroid Tradition. The latter, by A.D. 900 had already colonized the Barquisimeto and Yaracuy valleys. The Tierran styles correlate precisely with the Barquisimeto-Yaracuy Caquetio polities based on a dual system of leadership. The Dabajuroid Tradition, also expanded into the Yaracuy Valley where it split into several component sub-traditions and spread in opposite directions along the coast of Venezuela. The Dabajuran Sub-Tradition expanded into the west coast of Venezuela and rapidly colonized Aruba, Curacao and Bonaire by A.D. 900. By A.D. 1300 it reached the Maracaibo Basin. This process of expansion was interrupted by the Spanish Conquistadores. The Dabajuran sub-tradition precisely correlates with the Coastal Caquetio polity, characterized by a centralized leadership based on combining the roles of great shaman and paramount chief

Ferroelectric Tungsten Bronze Bulk Crystals and Epitaxial Thin Films for Electro-Optic Device Applications ( Book )
3 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Several doped (ce3+Ce4+ and Fe2+/Fe3+) and undoped SBN:60 single crystals have been grown using the Czochralski technique. Optical evaluation shows that Ce-doped crystals have minimum or no striations and are of optical quality, while Fe-doped crystals are highly striated under all growth conditions. Current results suggest that the existence of striations depends strongly on the type of dopant and its location in the structure. Ce-doped SBN:60 crystals currently exhibit excellent photorefractive properties with improved sensitivity and speed, indicating possible use for this material in device applications. The bronze composition SBN:50 is being studied for pyroelectric IR focal plane array applications. SBN:50 is slightly off congruent melting; however using the current Czochralski technique is now possible to grow good quality crystals as large as 1 cm in diameter. An extensive discussion of the thermodynamic phenomenology for tungsten bronze crystals is presented. An excellent fit to birefringence polarization data for Ba2NaNb5015 (BNN) is found for the Devonshire form of the Gibbs free-energy expansion, and good agreement is found for a number of thermodynamic constants over a broad range of tungsten bronze materials. This indicates that the hypothesis of near-constant higher order stiffness parameters is a good approximation for tetragonal bronze ferroelectrics, thereby allowing the analysis of a very wide range of other bronze compositions.

Research on Millimeter Wave Dielectric Materials ( Book )
1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Much of the early effort in this program was devoted to single crystal strontium barium niobate (SBN), a tungsten bronze with an unusually large room-temperature dielectric response. More recently, other tungsten bronzes such as potassium lithium niobate (KLN) and barium strontium potassium sodium niobate (BSKNN) have been prepared and studied to elucidate the role of unfilled crystallographic sites in influencing dielectric loss. Currently, we are developing preparation techniques for morphotropic phase boundary (MPB) bronzes, such as lead barium niobate (PBN), which should exhibit exceptionally large nonlinear electrical and optical response for a Pb:Ba ratio of 60:40, where it undergoes a transition from tetragonal to orthorhombic form. Large, high quality BSKNN single crystals have now been developed for free-space millimeter wave measurements. Measurements on BSKNN and SBN at room and cryogenic temperatures are reported, and a theoretical model has been successfully formulated for the dielectric response. Low frequency data are also presented for a new orthorhombic bronze, SCNN, which shows high suitability for millimeter wave development

New DC conductivity versus temperature data on sample of olivine, proxene, and feldspar in an atmosphere controlled by the quartz-fayalite-magnetite buffer are presented. AC data on one of the olivine samples are used to show directly that radio frequency sounding experiments in a lithospheric waveguide bounded above by conducting wet rocks and below by conducting hot rocks are a plausible possibility
