Économie du bien commun by Jean Tirole

By Jean Tirole

Avec ce preferable livre en français destiné à un huge public, le prix Nobel d'économie 2014 nous invite à partager sa ardour pour cette self-discipline. Il défend une certaine imaginative and prescient de l'économie, technological know-how qui croise los angeles théorie et les faits au provider du bien commun, et de l'économiste, chercheur et homme de terrain. C'est dire que le lecteur pénètre dans l'atelier d'un économiste et voyage à travers les sujets affectant notre quotidien : économie numérique, innovation, chômage, changement climatique, Europe, État, finance, marché... En dressant un landscape des grandes problématiques de l'économie d'aujourd'hui, Jean Tirole nous fait entrer au coeur des théories dont il est le père.

Algebraic K-groups as Galois modules by Victor P. Snaith

By Victor P. Snaith

This monograph offers the cutting-edge within the conception of algebraic K-groups. it truly is of curiosity to a wide selection of graduate and postgraduate scholars in addition to researchers in similar parts comparable to quantity concept and algebraic geometry. The strategies provided listed below are largely algebraic or cohomological. all through quantity thought and arithmetic-algebraic geometry one encounters items endowed with a traditional motion by way of a Galois crew. particularly this is applicable to algebraic K-groups and ?tale cohomology teams. This quantity is anxious with the development of algebraic invariants from such Galois activities. more often than not those invariants lie in low-dimensional algebraic K-groups of the critical group-ring of the Galois crew. A important subject, predictable from the Lichtenbaum conjecture, is the evaluate of those invariants by way of distinct values of the linked L-function at a unfavourable integer counting on the algebraic K-theory size. moreover, the "Wiles unit conjecture" is brought and proven to guide either to an review of the Galois invariants and to clarification of the Brumer-Coates-Sinnott conjectures. This publication is of curiosity to a large choice of graduate and postgraduate scholars in addition to researchers in components regarding algebraic K-theory corresponding to quantity idea and algebraic geometry. The strategies awarded listed here are largely algebraic or cohomological. necessities on L-functions and algebraic K-theory are recalled whilst wanted.

Structures of Social Action by J. Maxwell Atkinson

By J. Maxwell Atkinson

Bringing jointly 13 unique papers by way of major American and British researchers, this quantity displays clean advancements within the more and more influential box of dialog research. It starts off by way of outlining the theoretical and methodological foundations of the sphere and is going directly to advance a few of the major topics that experience emerged from topical empirical learn. those comprise the organization of choice, subject, non-vocal actions, and it sounds as if spontaneous responses similar to laughter and applause. the gathering represents the main entire assertion but to be released in this kind of learn.

Representation Theory of Algebras and Related Topics (ICRA by Raymundo Bautista, Roberto Martínez-Villa, Jose Antonio de

By Raymundo Bautista, Roberto Martínez-Villa, Jose Antonio de la Peña, eds.

Those lawsuits document a couple of lecture sequence brought in the course of the Workshop on illustration idea of Algebras and comparable issues held at Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM) in August 1994. The workshop used to be devoted to fresh advances within the box and its interplay with different components of arithmetic, similar to algebraic geometry, ring idea, and illustration of teams. this system of the Workshop consisted of nine lecture sequence. In addition there has been a Tame Day which includes 6 lectures reporting at the fresh advances within the examine of tame algebras and their module different types. in the course of the Workshop there has been a consultation dedicated to the exhibition of computing device courses built through individuals. those courses are implementations of algorithms concerning the calculation of very important elements of algebras and their module different types.

The Aura of Kings: Legitimacy and Divine Sanction in Iranian by Abolala Soudavar

By Abolala Soudavar

Within the air of mystery of Kings, Abolala Soudavar lines the symbolism of the Divine Glory to its early origins and demonstrates its continuity throughout Iranian background. The Divine Glory or farr-e izadi (Old Persian: khvarnah) is an enduring precept of Iranian political ideology frequently invoked to undertaking legitimacy of rule and divine sanction. Persian literature abounds with references to the ruler’s Divine Glory, and scholarly stories frequently emphasize the centrality of this topic to the subject of authority and gear. but, little awareness has been dedicated to the visible symbolism of farr and its strength for laying off extra gentle on our belief of old Iranian historical past. In a tradition the place the written notice is scarce and, even if on hand, is metaphoric and evasive, the pictorial record should be as beneficial as textual content, and iconography might be built into a necessary instrument of historiography. this significant and intensely readable examine sheds new mild at the formula and improvement of the symbolism of kingship in Iran and her geo-cultural friends, and contributes towards a greater realizing of the Iranian worldview mostly, and the propagation of the air of mystery as a visible image of farr specifically. "Abolala Soudavar has written a really informative ebook, which demanding situations many validated perspectives and introduces many new rules, hypotheses, and interpretations referring to symbols of legitimacy in Iran. via drawing on plenty of cash, vessels, bas-reliefs, work, and texts and emphasizing the visible representations of the symbols of legitimacy he has significantly widened the scope of discussion in this vital factor. No historian of Persian politics, religions or artwork can exempt himself from thinking about his interpretations and leading edge ideas." —Ehsan Yarshater, Prof. Emeritus, Columbia collage "I have learn The air of mystery of Kings with nice curiosity. It comprises new principles and new ways to provide an explanation for the monuments of Iranian background and paintings. i locate its arguments logical and well-conceived…." —Richard N. Frye, Prof. Emeritus, Harvard collage
