  4. The village world of early medieval northern Spain: local community and the land market

    The pattern of rural life in early medieval Spain is here vividly brought to life through careful examination of contemporary documents.

  5. LDPC coded OFDM and its application to DVB-T2, DVB-S2 and IEEE 80216e

    Nurellari, Edmond
    Since the invention of Information Theory by Shannon in 1948, coding theorists have been trying to come up with coding schemes that will achieve capacity dictated by Shannon’s Theorem. The most successful two coding schemes among many are the LDPCs and Turbo codes. In this thesis, we focus on LDPC codes and in particular their usage by the second generation terrestrial digital video broadcasting (DVB-T2), second generation satellite digital video broadcasting (DVB-S2) and IEEE 802.16e mobile WiMAX standards. Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) block codes were invented by Gallager in 1962 and they can achieve near Shannon limit performance on...

  8. Cromwell's head

    Fitzgibbons, Jonathan
    Oliver Cromwell's magnificent funeral in 1658 was a regal affair, witnessed by thousands and drawing on all the trappings of state. Yet less than three years later his corpse was removed from Westminster Abbey and 'executed' at Tyburn. This gruesome ceremony launched Cromwell's head on three centuries of extraordinary adventures, from a traitor's pole by Westminster Hall to an exhibition in London's Bond Street, the probings of 'cranial detectives' to the peace of a Cambridge college. "Cromwell's Head" tells the story of the head's remarkable journey, blending gallows humour with a compelling portrait of the great parliamentarian in life. It...

  11. The Oxford handbook of management

    Wilkinson, Adrian; Armstrong, Steve; Loundsbury, Michael
    Management, the pursuit of objectives through the organization and co-ordination of people, has been and is a core feature—and function— of modern society. Some ‘classic’ forms of corporate and bureaucratic management may be seen as the prevalent form of organization and organizing in the 20th century, but in the post-Fordist, global, knowledgedriven contemporary world we are seeing different patterns, principles, and styles of management as old models are questioned. The functions, ideologies, practices, and theories of management have changed over time, as recorded by many scholars, and may vary according to different models of organization, and between different cultures and societies. Whilst the administrative, corporate, or factory manager may be a...
