Almost Periodic Functions

Mathematician Harald Bohr, motivated by questions about which functions could be represented by a Dirichlet series, devised the theory of almost periodic functions during the 1920s. His groundbreaking work influenced many later mathematicians, who extended the theory in new and diverse directions. In this volume, Bohr focuses on an essential aspect of the theory — the functions of a real variable — in full detail and with complete proofs.
The treatment, which is based on Bohr’s lectures, starts with an introduction that leads to discussions of purely periodic functions and their Fourier series. The heart of the book, his exploration of the theory of almost periodic functions, is supplemented by two appendixes that cover generalizations of almost periodic functions and almost periodic functions of a complete variable.

Almost Blue

Un ragazzo cieco ascolta la città con lo scanner, unica compagnia *Almost Blue* suonato da Chet Baker. Un assassino si reincarna nelle sue vittime, e corre per le strade con nelle orecchie il rock piu metallico. Una giovane detective molto determinata scopre di essere donna, e tutta intera, in un universo tutto di uomini.
Nessuno vuole ammetterlo, ma a Bologna c’è un assassino seriale: è l’lguana, che assume di volta in volta l’identità delle sue vittime, per sfuggire alle «campane dell’inferno» che gli risuonano nelle orecchie. Tocca a Grazia cercare di prenderlo, e piu delle sofisticate tecnologie che usa, le servirà l’intuito e la capacità di ascolto di Simone, cieco dalla nascita. Mentre cacciatore e preda si scambiano continuamente i ruoli, vediamo la scena ora con gli occhi attenti e ansiosi di Grazia, ora con lo sguardo febbricitante e doloroso dell’lguana, o la percepiamo come un concerto di suoni e di voci, un complicato e fantastico arabesco mentale, quando la soggettiva è di Simone. E la città che così prende forma sotto i nostri occhi, fitto reticolo di trame e di ossessioni, è insieme la sorprendente megalopoli italiana che si stende su tutta l’Emilia, e anche il teatro magico dove tutte le storie possono accadere.

Almayer’s Folly a Story of an Eastern River

Almayer’s Folly, Joseph Conrad’s first novel, is a tale of personal tragedy as well as a broader meditation on the evils of colonialism. Set in the lush jungle of Borneo in the late 1800s, it tells of the Dutch merchant Kaspar Almayer, whose dreams of riches for his beloved daughter, Nina, collapse under the weight of his own greed and prejudice. Nadine Gordimer writes in her Introduction, “Conrad’s writing is lifelong questioning . . . What was ‘Almayer’s Folly’? The pretentious house never lived in? His obsession with gold? His obsessive love for his daughter, whose progenitors, the Malay race, he despised? All three?” Conrad established in Almayer’s Folly the themes of betrayal, isolation, and colonialism that he would explore throughout the rest of his life and work

All Art Is Propaganda

As a critic, George Orwell cast a wide net. Equally at home discussing Charles Dickens and Charlie Chaplin, he moved back and forth across the porous borders between essay and journalism, high art and low. A frequent commentator on literature, language, film, and drama throughout his career, Orwell turned increasingly to the critical essay in the 1940s, when his most important experiences were behind him and some of his most incisive writing lay ahead.
*All Art Is Propaganda *follows Orwell as he demonstrates in piece after piece how intent analysis of a work or body of work gives rise to trenchant aesthetic and philosophical commentary. With masterpieces such as “Politics and the English Language” and “Rudyard Kipling” and gems such as “Good Bad Books,” here is an unrivaled education in, as George Packer puts it, “how to be interesting, line after line.”
