Information theory: structural models for qualitative data

Krippendorff introduces social scientists to details thought and explains its software for structural modeling. He discusses key issues akin to: tips on how to ascertain a data conception version; its use in exploratory learn; and the way it compares with different methods resembling community research, course research, chi sq. and research of variance.

Ours To Hack and To Own: The Rise of Platform Cooperativism, a New Vision for the Future of Work and a Fairer Internet

The on-demand economic climate is reversing the rights and protections employees fought for hundreds of years to win. usual net clients, in the meantime, hold little keep an eye on over their own info. whereas promising to be the good equalizers, on-line structures have usually exacerbated social inequalities. Can the web be owned and ruled in a different way?

Assume that P is a representation of G in W such that P(x) d 0 = d 0 P(x), x E G. I. Lie Groups 42 Then P(x) determines a linear map P(x),: H( W )+ H( W ) and P,: x F+ P(x), is a representation of G in H ( W ) . On the other hand, the representation, P’, of E satisfies P’(h) o d = hEE d o P’(h), (differentiate the relation above).

A subspace I'C W is called stable for P (respectively, stable fw 8) if each of the operators P (x), x E G (respectively 8(h), h E E ) maps V to itself. Now fix h E E. Then P(exp th), and P'(h) are linear transformations of W. In particular, we regard the 1-parameter group P,: t H P(exp th) 39 40 I. Lie Groups as a path in the vector space i),(t) inL, . Lw .

This Lie group is called the direct product of G and H . T h e projections nG: G x H -+ G and nH: G x H -+ H , and the inclusions G, H -+ G x H , opposite e, are all homomorphisms of Lie groups. T h e Lie algebra homomorphisms nb , are given by ~ k ( hk,) =h &(A, k ) and = k. It follows that the Lie product in T,(G x H ) is given by [(A, k), (h’, k’)] 5.
