The examine of biography has consistently held an enormous, if now not explicitly acknowledged, position at school curricula. The absence in colleges of a category particularly dedicated to learning the lives of the giants of human heritage belies the focal point such a lot classes have regularly had on humans. From precedent days to the current, the realm has been formed via the choices, philosophies, innovations, discoveries, inventive creations, clinical breakthroughs, and written works of its myriad personalities.

The Saint's Saints: Hagiography And Geography In Jerome (Ancient Judaism and Early Christianity)

The Saint's Saints provides Jerome’s international photograph as obvious via his saints’ Lives. It analyses either his rhetoric and his descriptions of realia, and how he combines classical, Christian and Jewish assets to re-write the biblical Holy Land as a brand new and Christian global for his readers. Susan Weingarten appears to be like at how Jerome dovetails his literary assets along with his adventure of the cloth global of the fourth century to write down the Lives of the saints Paul, Hilarion, Malchus and Paula, successfully utilizing them to put in writing the lifetime of Saint Jerome.

C ∆ 2 can also be written (A + iB)(A – iB), where A – iB is called the complex conjugate of C, often written C *. The polar coordinate expression for C is Ce ia, where C is the amplitude (vector length) and a is the phase (the angle the vector makes with the x axis). C * is Ce–ia. This notation is particularly suitable for crystallography, because we measure amplitude and phase separately. When we measure the intensity of a reﬂection we are measuring ∆F ∆2, where F = Fe ia. The missing phase that cannot be measured directly in the crystallographic experiment is a.

Instead, the crystal must be moved into di√erent orientations to allow all the reﬂections to be observed. In the early twentieth century, the father-and-son team of William and William Lawrence Bragg developed a simple, semiquantitative model to explain di√raction from three-dimensional crystals. In the Bragg model the crystal contains families of equally spaced parallel planes running in di√erent directions. 1. The Bragg plane families are named by three integers, h, k, and l, called Miller indices.

Crystallography Made Crystal Clear, 2nd edition, by Gale Rhodes (Academic Press, New York, 2003) is a clear and well-constructed paperback. Good ﬁgures; gentle math. Outline of Crystallography for Biologists by David Blow (Oxford University Press, Oxford, 2002) is written by one of the creators of protein crystallography. Makes extensive use of the convolution operation to explain many crystallographic points. This is a powerful tool, but it comes with a learning curve. Wonderful physical insights.
