Politics is often characterized as the art of compromise - the implication being that compromise is desirable and that insight, imagination, discipline, and skill are all necessary for a compromise. Compromise in ethics, however, is quite another matter: there, it is usually regarded as a sign of weakness or lack of integrity. From Socrates and Sir Thomas More to Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr., we honour these men and women not only for the nature of their convictions but also for their unwavering refusal to compromise.

Difference and Repetition

We call this dark precursor , this difference in itself or difference in the second degree which relates ... space in which it is displaced and its process of disguise determine a relative size of the differences brought into relation .

Since its publication in 1968, "Difference and Repetition", an exposition of the critique of identity, has come to be considered a contemporary classic in philosophy and one of Deleuze's most important works. The text follows the development of two central concepts, those of pure difference and complex repetition. It shows how the two concepts are related, difference implying divergence and decentring, repetition being associated with displacement and disguising. The work moves deftly between Hegel, Kierkegaard, Freud, Althusser and Nietzsche to establish a fundamental critique of Western metaphysics, and has been a central text in initiating the shift in French thought - away from Hegel and Marx, towards Nietzsche and Freud.

Difference Methods for Singular Perturbation Problems

However, the estimates (12.16) and (12.17) of the matrix A do not allow us to clarify differences in sensitivity of solutions of the difference schemes (12.4), (12.7) and (12.4), (12.5), (12.14) to perturbations in the data of the grid ...

Difference Methods for Singular Perturbation Problems focuses on the development of robust difference schemes for wide classes of boundary value problems. It justifies the ε-uniform convergence of these schemes and surveys the latest approaches important for further progress in numerical methods. The first part of the book explores boundary value problems for elliptic and parabolic reaction-diffusion and convection-diffusion equations in n-dimensional domains with smooth and piecewise-smooth boundaries. The authors develop a technique for constructing and justifying ε uniformly convergent difference schemes for boundary value problems with fewer restrictions on the problem data. Containing information published mainly in the last four years, the second section focuses on problems with boundary layers and additional singularities generated by nonsmooth data, unboundedness of the domain, and the perturbation vector parameter. This part also studies both the solution and its derivatives with errors that are independent of the perturbation parameters. Co-authored by the creator of the Shishkin mesh, this book presents a systematic, detailed development of approaches to construct ε uniformly convergent finite difference schemes for broad classes of singularly perturbed boundary value problems.

Introduction to Difference Equations

Had we known this fact (namely, the difference of the sum9 of two functions is equal to the sum of the differences of the functions) we could have avoided the above algebra and obtained A(at + 2:2) directly from Table 1.1.

This is the first monograph on codebooks and linear codes from difference sets and almost difference sets. It aims at providing a survey of constructions of difference sets and almost difference sets as well as an in-depth treatment of codebooks and linear codes from difference sets and almost difference sets. To be self-contained, this monograph covers necessary mathematical foundations and the basics of coding theory. It also contains tables of best BCH codes and best cyclic codes over GF(2) and GF(3) up to length 125 and 79, respectively. This repository of tables can be used to benchmark newly constructed cyclic codes. This monograph is intended to be a reference for postgraduates and researchers who work on combinatorics, or coding theory, or digital communications.

McKenna explicates key elements of the anthropology of Rene Girard and the literary theory of Jacques Derrida in terms of each other--to create an interpretive strategy that he hopes will "salvage deconstruction from the flashy sterility it favors."

Addressing representation and identity in a variety of production styles and genres, including experimental film and documentary, independent and mainstream film, and television drama, Filming Difference poses fundamental questions about the ways in which the art and craft of filmmaking force creative people to confront stereotypes and examine their own identities while representing the complexities of their subjects. Selections range from C. A. Griffith’s “Del Otro Lado: Border Crossings, Disappearing Souls, and Other Transgressions” and Celine Perreñas Shimizu’s “Pain and Pleasure in the Flesh of Machiko Saito’s Experimental Movies” to Christopher Bradley’s “I Saw You Naked: ‘Hard’ Acting in ‘Gay’ Movies,” along with Kevin Sandler’s interview with Paris Barclay, Yuri Makino’s interview with Chris Eyre, and many other perspectives on the implications of film production, writing, producing, and acting. Technical aspects of the craft are considered as well, including how contributors to filmmaking plan and design films and episodic television that feature difference, and how the tools of cinema—such as cinematography and lighting—influence portrayals of gender, race, and sexuality. The struggle between economic pressures and the desire to produce thought-provoking, socially conscious stories forms another core issue raised in Filming Difference. Speaking with critical rigor and creative experience, the contributors to this collection communicate the power of their media.
