The shape of time : remarks on the history of things by George Kubler( Book )

3 editions published in 1988 in Spanish and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it was first released in 1962, The Shape of Time presented a radically new approach to the study of art history. Drawing upon new insights in fields such as anthropology and linguistics, George Kubler replaced the notion of style as the basis for histories of art with the concept of historical sequence and continuous change across time. Kubler's classic work is now made available in a freshly designed edition. "The Shape of Time is as relevant now as it was in 1962. This book, a sober, deeply introspective, and quietly thrilling meditation on the flow of time and space and the place of objects within a larger continuum, adumbrates so many of the critical and theoretical concerns of the late twentieth and early twenty-first century. It is both appropriate and necessary that it re-appear in our consciousness at this time."--Edward J. Sullivan, New York University This book will be of interest to all students of art history and to those concerned with the nature and theory of history in general. In a study of formal and symbolic durations the author presents a radically new approach to the problem of historical change. Using new ideas in anthropology and linguistics, he pursues such questions as the nature of time, the nature of change, and the meaning of invention. The result is a view of historical sequence aligned on continuous change more than upon the static notion of style--the usual basis for conventional histories of art. A carefully reasoned and brilliantly suggestive essay in defense of the view that the history of art can be the study of formal relationships, as against the view that it should concentrate on ideas of symbols or biography.--Harper's. It is a most important achievement, and I am sure that it will be studies for many years in many fields. I hope the book upsets people and makes them reformulate.--James Ackerman. In this brief and important essay, George Kubler questions the soundness of the stylistic basis of art historical studies. ... The Shape of Time ably states a significant position on one of the most complex questions of modern art historical scholarship.--Virginia Quarterly Review

A finite Markov chain model of the combat process by Thomas Ford Reese( )

4 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A generalized combat process is structured as a regular finite Markov chain with states reflecting the control, maneuver, target acquisition, and target destruction actions of a weapons system. The mean and variance of the first passage times to certain states and the limiting distribution of the amount of time that the process remains in a given state are suggested as being useful measures of the effectiveness of a weapons system. Some statistical techniques for estimating the one-step transition probabilities are given, and methods for modeling deterministic and stochastic action times, i.e., the amount of time that the process remains in a given state are presented. It is also shown that the reciprocal of an element of the mean first passage time matrix of the Markov chain model of the generalized combat process can be defined as the Lanchester attrition coefficient for a square law combat process. The usefulness of this contribution to the Lanchester theory of combat is discussed
