Information theory: structural models for qualitative data

Krippendorff introduces social scientists to details conception and explains its software for structural modeling. He discusses key themes comparable to: find out how to be sure a knowledge conception version; its use in exploratory study; and the way it compares with different ways comparable to community research, direction 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 staff fought for hundreds of years to win. traditional net clients, in the meantime, hold little keep an eye on over their own information. whereas promising to be the good equalizers, on-line systems have frequently exacerbated social inequalities. Can the web be owned and ruled in a different way?

We now compute a typical transformed velocity-squared term in the kinetic energy in order to obtain the exact form of these divergence terms. = C:t (x, + Eh)y + 1;8)2 = x/ + 21;8 Xk + (1;8)2 = (,x k = x• k 2 + I; 8 dtd (2xd + 0 (I; 8) . 46). 47) 10, 8,9. Whence, it follows from Eqs. 22) that ot. 48) k constant. 49) We remark that (xC' Ye, ze) are the coordinates of the center of mass of the system, and M is of course just the total mass of the n particles. 50) for constants A I, A z, and A 3' Denoting the constants on the right-hand sides of Eqs.

In our analysis, however, this degree of generality will not be required. 16 1 Necessary Conditions for an Extremum (r', ... • dt". The boundary of D will be denoted by Bd D. The Divergence Theorem, which states that the volume integral of a divergence expression equals a certain integral over the Bd D, is needed in our calculation of necessary conditions, so we shall now state it but without proof. Any standard advanced calculus text can be consulted for the proof. 3 Theorem Let D <;; R" and let f(t) = [it", ...

1 Necessary Conditions for an Extremum 24 EXERCISES Consider the variational problem J = J6" x2 dt. (t) = t + e sin t. Sketch this family geometrically, compute J(e) explicitly, and prove directly that M(x, 11) = 0, where x = t,11 = sin t, Deduce that x(t) = t is an extremal. 1-1 1-2 For the simplest variational problem J = J:~ L(t, x, x) dt, prove that the Euler-Lagrange equations may be written in the form 1-3 Analyze the following variational problems: (a) J(x) = (b) J(x) = (c) J(x) = fx dt -+ Ext, fxx f dt -+ Ext, txx dt -+ x(O) = 0, x(1) = 1.
