An Anthology of French and Francophone Singers from A to Z

An Anthology of French and Francophone Singers from A to Z PDF Book Detail Author: Michaël Abecassis
Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing
ISBN: 1527512053
Category : Music
Languages : en
Pages : 688

Book Description
Every musical form has had an impact on the linguistic practices of our society. French song is a vector of cultural, social, and stylistic values. Throughout the world, songs in the French language are used in the teaching of French: professors incorporate songs into the curriculum in order to illustrate differences of register and linguistic variation, as well as to raise lexical or grammatical questions. As a form of popular expression, song is a genre that has, in recent years, become the focus of serious academic scholarship and criticism. However, few linguists have paid attention to French song and its linguistic uses. This richly illustrated mini-dictionary about French singers fills this gap by offering a collection of portraits of the greatest singers of the French language and how they have constructed the musical landscape in both France and the larger francophone community and the world as a whole. Through (re)discovering these classic and contemporary artists who contribute to the creation of the sonorous universe of the 20th and 21st centuries, the volume determines how these musical genres influence the French language and nourish our collective imagination. By plunging into francophone song, one can achieve a better understanding of the culture and the language of its speakers.

Criminal Law in Action

Criminal Law in Action PDF Book Detail Author: Jan van Dijk
Publisher: Martinus Nijhoff Publishers
ISBN: 9789065443601
Category : Law
Languages : en
Pages : 456

Book Description
The title of this work illustrates the two difficulties which the chosen theme poses, difficulties which arise from the confrontation between collective & individual interests. On the one hand, the criminal process is based on the protection of society; on the other hand, human rights implies respect for all individuals implicated in that process, be they victim, witness or accused. A third difficulty arises in relation to the new influence of European law. While the right to judge has long appeared to be the most obvious indication of national sovereignty, it is now subject to supranational control & a State can be censured by the European Court of Human Rights. Part One of this volume analyses the period of reform in various Eastern & Western European countries; Part Two explores the debate among jurists, historians, sociologists & philosophers on the subject of the criminal trial in a democratic society. Finally, Part Three reflects on the issue within the context of the European Community & the European Council & explores the question of a future model for the European criminal trial. Professor Mireille Delmas-Marty teaches at l'Universite de Paris I Pantheon Sorbonne & is a member of l'Institut Universitaire de France. She is the editor of The European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights, International Protection versus National Restrictions (Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 1992.)

Animation in Europe

Animation in Europe PDF Book Detail Author: Rolf Giesen
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 1000629406
Category : Computers
Languages : en
Pages : 502

Book Description
There is a lot one could say about animation in Europe, but above all, there is no consistent European animation. It is as disparate as the various countries involved. Audiences will certainly recognize American or Japanese animation, but in Europe, it can range from Czech, Polish, and Hungarian to Greek, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French, and British. Animation in Europe provides a comprehensive review of the history and current situation of animation in over 20 European countries. It features numerous interviews with artists and producers, including rare documents and firsthand accounts that illustrate the rich history of animation in Europe. Additional features include • An extensive chronology with key events in European animation • A Who’s Who of producers, directors, writers, and animators working in Europe • An examination of the origin of European animation and its influence Animation in Europe is the first book devoted entirely to this topic and, therefore, will be of value for animation buffs as well as practitioners and researchers.

Book Description
Bringing together the world's leading researchers and practitioners of computational mechanics, these new volumes meet and build on the eight key challenges for research and development in computational mechanics. Researchers have recently identified eight critical research tasks facing the field of computational mechanics. These tasks have come about because it appears possible to reach a new level of mathematical modelling and numerical solution that will lead to a much deeper understanding of nature and to great improvements in engineering design. The eight tasks are: The automatic solution of mathematical models Effective numerical schemes for fluid flows The development of an effective mesh-free numerical solution method The development of numerical procedures for multiphysics problems The development of numerical procedures for multiscale problems The modelling of uncertainties The analysis of complete life cycles of systems Education - teaching sound engineering and scientific judgement Readers of Computational Fluid and Solid Mechanics 2003 will be able to apply the combined experience of many of the world's leading researchers to their own research needs. Those in academic environments will gain a better insight into the needs and constraints of the industries they are involved with; those in industry will gain a competitive advantage by gaining insight into the cutting edge research being carried out by colleagues in academia. Features Bridges the gap between academic researchers and practitioners in industry Outlines the eight main challenges facing Research and Design in Computational mechanics and offers new insights into the shifting the research agenda Provides a vision of how strong, basic and exciting education at university can be harmonized with life-long learning to obtain maximum value from the new powerful tools of analysis

Languages : en
Pages : 312

Book Description
Les systèmes embarqués rendent un nombre de services grandissant et font partie de notre vie quotidienne : ascenseurs, transports, téléphonie, médecine, énergie, industrie, etc. Ainsi, si l’on parle de plus en plus de systèmes embarqués, il s’agit avant tout d’un ensemble complet et intégré (matériel + logiciel). Le point central de leur développement est leur interaction avec leur environnement et les conséquences associées en termes de sécurité et de fiabilité. Cet ouvrage dresse un état de l’art du développement des systèmes embarqués. Il se concentre particulièrement sur leur modélisation et leur analyse. Il s’agit d’opérations cruciales qui détermineront la fiabilité du futur système. L’apparition récente des techniques basées sur l’ingénierie des modèles pourrait révolutionner le développement de ces systèmes en assurant une continuité entre le niveau conceptuel et l’implémentation de la partie logicielle. L’ouvrage expose trois approches parmi les plus utilisées : SysML (aspects ingénierie système), UML/MARTE et AADL (conception/analyse).

Viscoplasticit endommagement m canique de la rupture et m canique du contact

ISBN: 2746243237
Category :
Languages : en
Pages : 492

Book Description
Concevoir de nouveaux matériaux de structure, allonger la durée de vie des pièces, éviter les ruptures en service font partie des préoccupations majeures des ingénieurs. Une bonne maîtrise du comportement mécanique des matériaux est essentielle pour aboutir à ce résultat. Cet ouvrage aborde ce sujet dans les domaines de la viscoplasticité, de l'endommagement, de la résistance à la fissuration et de la mécanique du contact. Faisant suite à un précédent volume sur le comportement mécanique des matériaux, consacré à l'élasticité et à l'élastoplasticité, il conserve la même démarche qui consiste, en partant des mécanismes actifs à l'échelle microscopique, à remonter aux lois macroscopiques. Le premier chapitre concerne les comportements viscoplastiques qui se manifestent, par exemple, à basse température, par une influence de la vitesse de sollicitation, ou, à haute température, par le fluage sous charge constante. Le deuxième chapitre traite des très nombreux phénomènes d'endommagement que l'on rencontre dans tous les matériaux (métalliques, polymères, verres, bétons ...), comme la cavitation, la fatigue, la corrosion sous contrainte. Le troisième chapitre donne les notions de mécanique de la rupture nécessaires pour comprendre la résistance de la fissuration. Le quatrième chapitre apporte les notions principales de mécanique du contact. Chaque chapitre est suivi d'exercices, énoncés de telle sorte que le lecteur est guidé pas à pas pour trouver la solution. De très nombreuses illustrations facilitent la lecture. Comportement mécanique des matériaux est le fruit du DEA "Mécanique et Matériaux" de la région parisienne. Il s'adresse aussi aux élèves-ingénieurs, ingénieurs et chercheurs. Les développements mathématiques y sont d'un accès facile. Les réelles difficultés, dont la maîtrise n'est pas exempte d'aspects passionnants, résident dans les fréquents changements d'échelle et dans le sens physique auquel il est fait appel.
