With Lawrence in Arabia by Lowell Thomas( Book )

9 editions published between 1924 and 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 1,474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was 1918 in Jerusalem, when the admiring young American scholar and journalist Lowell Thomas first met T.E. Lawrence. He went on to write With Lawrence in Arabia, a book that sparked the Lawrence of Arabia legend and was the basis of the celebrated film. With brilliant narrative verve, Lowell recounts the exploits of the young British agent who managed to weld disparate and warring Arab tribes into a formidable mobile fighting force - a guerilla army that would defeat the Turks in the Arab Revolt, sealing the fate of the Ottoman Empire in the Middle East during World War I. On a canvas whose background is the fierce, inhospitable desert and in whose foreground stride the Emir Feisal, King Hussein I of the Hedjaz, the British General Allenby, and the strange, hypnotic figure of Lawrence himself, Thomas paints a vivid portrait of the "modern knight of Arabia."

The decomposition principle in engineering problems: towards a multi-level concept of problem solving( Book )

1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In a previous report (AD-630 942) it was shown that a large system of differential equations could be decomposed into smaller groups (called subproblems) such that the solutions of the subproblems converged to the solution of the original system. It was also shown that the decomposition was most effective when the original problem was decomposed along the boundaries of weakest interaction in terms of the Lipscitz constants. This last fact, however, is a desirable but not essential condition. The major purpose of the present report is to develop certain techniques which will facilitate the application of the decomposition principle as stated in the previous report. The techniques fall into two categories: (a) Those that help indicate how the grouping may be done in a natural and efficient manner, and (b) Those that lead to a prior simplification of the original problem before the variables are grouped. Techniques of the first category make use of what has been called 'directed graphs'; those of the second category concentrate on the various types of linearization. (Author)
