Consequently, the absence of side lobes is desirable because any sizable
reflections are known to have been produced by objects located somewhere
along the direction of the main lobe. The main lobe can be scanned to search in

Introduction to Wave Physics is a textbook that was developed out of a one-semester college course on Waves and Optics. It is designed to prepare the reader for work, research, or further study in areas that require a strong foundation in wave phenomena. It is therefore intended to be comprehensive and includes chapters on interference, reflection and transmission, cavities and waveguides, radiation, diffraction and scattering. It proceeds from simple to complex, employing one-dimensional waves to introduce major concepts in the first chapter, and extending each of those concepts to three dimensions in subsequent chapters for rectangular, spherical and cylindrical coordinates. Both scalar and vector waves are addressed, using acoustic waves as the primary example of the former and electromagnetic waves as the primary example of the latter.

clearly in the eastern building of the large central compound (Building K, Fig. 7).
This building had two very long rooms (K2 and K4, 25 m and 32 m in length) with

Section 508 Compliant During the last few decades, there has been great interest in the problems of defining the extent and nature of kingship in the Mycenaean world. Questions concerning the degree of economic and religious power held by the king have been given special emphasis. This book surveys the conclusions drawn by individual scholars studying the Linear B tablets, contrasts their theories with our knowledge of the Mycenaean kingdoms as derived from the archaeological record, and finally compares this evidence with possible reflections in the oral tradition, specifically in the Iliad and Odyssey . This approach leads to the suggestion that the king in the Mycenaean period had only limited power over the society and its economy. Although the king appears to have controlled a large segment of the economy, it is argued here that other individuals and family groups within the kingdom also had a certain degree of economic independence.
Large operations constitute a special category, both because it is difficult to
maintain secrecy about them and because their compromise, if and when it
occurs, is usually dramatic. Most large operations cannot be truly secret: if they

This volume contains selected papers of Lawrence R Klein in economics, econometric theory and applications in modeling, forecasting, macroeconomic analysis, international economics and public policy. Nobel Laureate Lawrence Klein's bibliography spans a half-century, including books, articles, and chapters in conference proceedings, festschriften, and thematic books. One such volume of solely scientific collections, mainly from his relatively early articles, has already been published. The present volume is different, it includes some articles, but largely chapters, or book excerpts that were mostly written since 1980, the approximate cut-off date of the prior volume, and the year of his Nobel Prize. Also, it includes things that were published in very limited or obscure editions. Thus it provides a more complete picture of his scholarly career and his current reflections on the state of economic science. All these writings are in the vanguard of thinking about economics in a global domain. The thirty-five-plus selections are organized in five parts, by major themes. An editorial commentary introduces each part. The introductory chapters include Klein's autobiographical research commentary, and his professional life philosophy.

Is culture brokered like stocks, real estate, or marriage? In this engaging book, Richard Kurin shows that cultures are always mediated and indeed brokered by countries, organizations, communities, and individuals - all with their own vision of the truth and varying abilities to impose it on others. Arguing that cultural exhibits reflect a series of decisions about representing someone, someplace, and something, Reflections of a Culture Broker discusses the ethical and technical problems faced by not only those who practice in a museum setting but also anyone charged with representing culture in a public forum.
The Process One positive attribute of processing shallow seismic reflection data
is that the total size of the data set is typically small relative to exploration - scale
data sets . Because of this , processors have the ability to perform several steps ...

The goal of this primer is to provide a basic near-surface seismic-reflection processing guide for workers who have not had industry- or academic-supported training or guidance but wish to maintain the integrity of seismic imaging as a tool for near-surface exploration. Increasingly, shallow-reflection seismology is being used as a noninvasive tool for determining the physical properties and geometry of the upper 100 meters of the subsurface. This primer focuses on processing two small data sets using standard common-midpoint (CMP) processing and includes significant processing pitfalls encountered in previous work.
