The Cloisters : medieval art and architecture by Peter Barnet( Book )

10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Cloisters is the branch of The Metropolitan Museum of Art devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe. This splendid new guide, richly illustrated with more than 175 color pictures, offers a broad introduction to the remarkable history of The Cloisters as well as a lively and informative discussion of the treasures within. Assembled with Romanesque and Gothic architectural elements dating from the twelfth through the fifteenth century, The Cloisters is itself a New York City landmark, overlooking sweeping vistas of the Hudson River in Upper Manhattan. Long cherished as a world-class museum, it also contains beautiful gardens featuring plants, fruit trees, and useful herbs familiar from the collection's medieval tapestries and other works of art. Among the masterworks of medieval religious and domestic life housed in The Cloisters are exceptional examples of carved ivory, illuminated manuscripts, stained glass, silver- and goldsmiths' work, and tapestries, including the famous Unicorn in Captivity. Enriched by the latest scholarship from The Cloisters' expert staff of curators, educators, and horticulturalists, this volume will stand as the definitive source on the collection for years to come." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/enhancements/fy0662/2005029684-d.html
Ad quadratum : the practical application of geometry in medieval architecture by Nancy Y Wu( )

27 editions published between 2002 and 2017 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The purpose of the project is to provide the most up-to-date survey on issues dealing with practical geometry and how it might have been applied in the design of medieval architecture. Chronologically, the topics cover a wide span - from early Medieval through Late Gothic. Geographically, the monuments under discussion range from Early Medieval Florence through Carolingian Germany, Crusader Cyprus, Romanesque France and Gothic England. The applications of both geometry and metrology are considered in this volume, often with illustrations generated by computer-assisted design (CAD) software. The project therefore offers recent scholarship in the field, as well as cutting-edge technology which helps propel the pursuit of such studies. To this end, the project is the first of its kind both in terms of its focus and its comprehensiveness. Such a project is sorely needed to introduce this highly specialized discipline to other historians of art, history, and science of the Middle Ages, as well as historians in most humanistic areas." -- Publisher's description
The Cloisters : Medieval art and architecture by Peter Barnet( Book )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Home to an extraordinary collection of treasured masterworks, including the famed Unicorn Tapestries, 'The Cloisters' is devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe. This splendid new guide, published to celebrate The Cloisters' seventy-fifth anniversary, richly illustrates and describes the most important highlights of its collection, from paintings, illuminated manuscripts, and exquisitely carved ivories to its monumental architecture evocative of the grand religious spaces and domestic interiors of the Middle Ages. 'The Cloisters' remains a testament to design innovation - a New York City landmark with sweeping views of the Hudson River - featuring original elements of Romanesque and Gothic architecture dating from the 12th through the 15th century. Three of the structures enclose beautiful gardens cultivated with species known from tapestries, medieval herbals, and other historic sources. These exotic spaces, the art masterpieces, and the fragrant plants offer visitors an oasis of serenity and inspiration

Stability enhancement of atomic timekeeping using Raman adiabatic rapid passage by Nancy Y Wu( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Current state-of-the-art atomic clocks span the range from large accurate fountain clocks such as the NIST-F2 to relatively small inaccurate chip scale clocks. Small clocks with higher accuracy could greatly expand the range of applications for precision timekeeping, and enable cheaper implementation of existing applications. This type of clock may be realized by use of optical Raman interferometry based on pulsed interrogation of cold atoms. However, this method suffers from serious systematic error sources, e.g., AC Stark shift and Zeeman shift, which alter the atomic resonance frequency. A new method based on adiabatic rapid passage (ARP) has been recently demonstrated at Draper which has significantly reduced phase sensitivity to differential AC Stark shift. It is found that compared to standard Raman, use of ARP enhances timekeeping stability by a factor of three with stability of 2 x 10⁻¹² at 100 seconds. Increasing data rate may also improve short term stability. With all of the above improvements, ARP enhances short term fractional stability to 7 x 10⁻¹² at one second
