Klute by Alan J Pakula( Visual )

31 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A laserdisc version of the film, with original theatrical trailer. This film works both as a genre entertainment - a suspense thriller in which an ex-policeman investigates the mysterious disappearance of a research scientist - and as a character study of some psychological and moral complexity. The real centre is Jane Fonda's portrayal of a high-bracket call girl, Bree, who wants to quit yet enjoys the control she exercises over her customers. Cable the murderer, and Klute are not psychologically rounded characters. They can be seen to represent the duality in Bree's nature: Cable, the malignant and unfeeling side, Klute the projection of her positive and loving feelings

Applied nonlinear time series analysis : applications in physics, physiology and finance by Michael Small( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nonlinear time series methods have developed rapidly over a quarter of a century and have reached an advanced state of maturity during the last decade. Implementations of these methods for experimental data are now widely accepted and fairly routine; however, genuinely useful applications remain rare. This book focuses on the practice of applying these methods to solve real problems. To illustrate the usefulness of these methods, a wide variety of physical and physiological systems are considered. The technical tools utilized in this book fall into three distinct, but interconnected areas: quantitative measures of nonlinear dynamics, Monte-Carlo statistical hypothesis testing, and nonlinear modeling. Ten highly detailed applications serve as case studies of fruitful applications and illustrate the mathematical techniques described in the text
