Codex Manesse: quatro iluminuras do Grande Livro de Can es manuscritas de Heidelberg (século XIII) - análise iconográfica  [PDF]
Ricardo da Costa,Alyne dos Santos Gol?alves
Brathair , 2001,
Abstract: Iconographic analyses of four iluminures contained in the Great Book of Manuscripts Songs of Heidelberg. The article begins with a short description of the political situation of the German Empire on the second half of the XIII century. Afterwards, it describes the book organization and the characteristics of the artists. The chosen iluminures are: 1) The Kaiser Heinrich VI, traditionally represented in his throne; 2) King Tyro of Schoffen, a scene where the father advises his son of the best way to the well-government; 3) King Wenzell, showed in a scene of Royal Court, surrounded by employed, knights, musicians and servants. The scene means the praise of the prince; 4) Duke Heinrich of Breslau. The scene shows the duke as the triumphant winner of a military campaign, surrounded by a multitude of musicians and knights. The duke receives the victory's laurel by the hands of a lady, what symbolises the medieval courtly love.

Abstract: Codex[ml] integrated system has been developed by CILEA with the aim of meeting management, storage and fruition requirements of digital objects. Using Codex[ml] every agency and every library that deals with organ ized information can offer the fruition of its own works, text or archives, through an on-line navigation based on different xml metadata standards. Codex[ml] performs import, creation, long-term storage, delivery and fruition of xml documents that follow administrative standards for data management. It is an open system, which is able to manage METS, MAG and other standards, even not yet developed (adding new metadata interface modules). This is a modular and scalar software: every component is developed over a common framework to guarantee full interoperability. Il sistema integrato Codex[ml] è stato sviluppato dal CILEA per la gestione, conservazione e fruizione via web di risorse digitali. La piattaforma consente a ogni istituzione culturale, biblioteca o archivio che possieda informa zioni cartacee digitalizzate, la relativa fruizione attraverso la navigazione via web, sfruttando l’analisi dei diversi standard di metadati, in linguaggio XML. Il sistema si presenta modulare e scalabile: ogni modulo è un elemento indipendente che interagisce con gli altri per garantire la possibilità di creare, conservare, distribuire immagini corredate da metadati. L’utente può navigare all’interno della risorsa digitale visualizzandola con un’interfaccia web, sfruttando la struttura descritta nei metadati, codificati in linguaggio XML, secondo le specifiche previste dagli standard METS, MAG, etc., ma predisposta anche per nuovi standard non ancora scritti.
Coppo’s Piran codex – structure and condition  [PDF]

Knji?nica : Revija za Podro?je Bibliotekarstva in Informacijske Znanosti , 2002,
Abstract: Along with a number of precious museum pieces, the Maritime Museum Sergej Ma era in Piran keeps within its collection two manuscripts bound in a single text-block, i.e. De Summa totius Orbis and Portolano, together with printed woodcut maps. Coppo’s codex as a whole, is probably the most precious cartographic document kept in Slovenia and considered to be an artefact with world class cultural status. As parts of the Codex differ in content, they also vary in terms of their material profile. The manuscript and printed part differ due to the type of record, paper, form, manner of binding and degree of damage. For drawing, printing and colouring of the maps, the same materials were used as its contemporaries: paper, iron-gall inks and pigments. The textual part of the Codex is hardly readable and in many places badly damaged due to the corrosive activity of metal ions in iron-gall inks and copper pigments. Apart from itsinestimable information value, any potential damage to the Codex demands constant strict protection and exhibition only on exceptional occasions.
Probing dark energy beyond $z=2$ with CODEX  [PDF]
P. E. Vielzeuf,C. J. A. P. Martins
Physics , 2012, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevD.85.087301
Abstract: Precision measurements of nature's fundamental couplings and a first measurement of the cosmological redshift drift are two of the key targets for future high-resolution ultra-stable spectrographs such as CODEX. Being able to do both gives CODEX a unique advantage, allowing it to probe dynamical dark energy models (by measuring the behavior of their equation of state) deep in the matter era and thereby testing classes of models that would otherwise be difficult to distinguish from the standard $\Lambda$CDM paradigm. We illustrate this point with two simple case studies.
Ancient Greek Illustrated Dioscoridean Herbals: Origins and Impact of the Juliana Anicia Codex and the Codex Neopolitanus
Jules JANICK,John STOLARCZYK
Notulae Botanicae Horti Agrobotanici Cluj-Napoca , 2012,
Abstract: The pharmacopeia of Pedanius Dioscorides (20-70 ce), entitled Περ λη ιατρικ (latinized as De Materia Medica, On Medical Matters) was written in Greek about the year 65. It was destined to be one of the most famous books on pharmacology and medicine but is also rich in horticulture and plant ecology. An illustrated alphabetical version of Dioscorides’ manuscript was completed in Constantinople about 512. This magnificent volume was prepared and presented to the imperial Princess Juliana Anicia (462-527), daughter of the Emperor Anicius Olybrius, Emperor of the Western Roman Empire. The bound manuscript stored in ōsterreichische Nationalbibliothek in Vienna is available in facsimile and is now referred to as the Juliana Anicia Codex (JAC) or the Codex Vindobonensis Dioscorides. The JAC contains 383 paintings of plants including many horticultural crops, many of which can still be recognized in modern day examples. An analysis of the illustrations indicates that they were made by numerous artists of varying skills and it is probable that some were derived from an earlier lost version. The Codex Neapolitanus (NAP) (late 6th or early 7th century) which now contains 406 plant images on 172 folios resides in the Biblioteca Nazionale, Naples is closely related to JAC, and is also available in facsimile editions. A comparison of the 352 common illustrations contained in both NAP and JAC suggests that many of the illustrations derived from a common source, perhaps an illustrated collection owned by Theodosius II, but the possibility also exists that some of the NAP images are direct copies of JAC images. There are 31 images in JAC which do not appear in NAP, 1 is a 13th century addition, 4 are images that can be assigned to 2 torn pages. and 26 can be assigned to 11 missing leaves of the NAP. Of the 54 images in NAP which do not appear in JAC, 2 are likely to have been Mandragora included in lost folios in JAC, but the other 52 may include other images that existed in the common source. While common images in NAP and JAC are often very similar, 11.6% show substantially differences including variants of the same plant in different stages. Additional images in the archetypic source including different stages of the same plant could have provided the copyists working on JAC and NAP the opportunity to select different images to fulfill their commissions.

Estudios de cultura maya , 2010,
Abstract: ancient mayan civilization, flourished from 1200 b.c. to 1500 a.d., has left numerous hieroglyphic texts on astronomical observations and calendar. in particular, the dresden codex contains the most details of such ancient mayan heritage. page 24 and those from 46 to 50 of the dresden codex describe the mayan venus calendar along with the augural descriptions. we note that the calendar in dresden codex is venus-solar calendar. our work focuses on the possibility that the calendar was made to work in conjunction with the periodic appearance of constellations on the sky. by analyzing the descriptions in the venus pages, we propose that the columns in each page describe the motion of venus with respect to major constellations at dates corresponding to special events while the calendar dates increase horizontally in the synodic period of venus. we present twenty mayan constellations identified from the venus pages assuming that the first date of page 46 is february 6, 1228. we also report our understanding of verb expressions about the relative movement of constellations and venus.
Porting HTM Models to the Heidelberg Neuromorphic Computing Platform  [PDF]

Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: Hierarchical Temporal Memory (HTM) is a computational theory of machine intelligence based on a detailed study of the neocortex. The Heidelberg Neuromorphic Computing Platform, developed as part of the Human Brain Project (HBP), is a mixed-signal (analog and digital) large-scale platform for modeling networks of spiking neurons. In this paper we present the first effort in porting HTM networks to this platform. We describe a framework for simulating key HTM operations using spiking network models. We then describe specific spatial pooling and temporal memory implementations, as well as simulations demonstrating that the fundamental properties are maintained. We discuss issues in implementing the full set of plasticity rules using Spike-Timing Dependent Plasticity (STDP), and rough place and route calculations. Although further work is required, our initial studies indicate that it should be possible to run large-scale HTM networks (including plasticity rules) efficiently on the Heidelberg platform. More generally the exercise of porting high level HTM algorithms to biophysical neuron models promises to be a fruitful area of investigation for future studies.

Abstract: Ancient Mayan civilization, flourished from 1200 B.C. to 1500 A.D., has left numerous hieroglyphic texts on astronomical observations and calendar. In particular, the Dresden Codex contains the most details of such ancient Mayan heritage. Page 24 and those from 46 to 50 of the Dresden Codex describe the Mayan Venus calendar along with the augural descriptions. We note that the calendar in Dresden Codex is Venus-solar calendar. Our work focuses on the possibility that the calendar was made to work in conjunction with the periodic appearance of constellations on the sky. By analyzing the descriptions in the Venus pages, we propose that the columns in each page describe the motion of Venus with respect to major constellations at dates corresponding to special events while the calendar dates increase horizontally in the synodic period of Venus. We present twenty Mayan constellations identified from the Venus pages assuming that the first date of page 46 is February 6, 1228. We also report our understanding of verb expressions about the relative movement of constellations and Venus. La civilización maya, que floreció del 1200 a.C. a 1500 d.C., dejó numerosos textos jeroglíficos sobre el calendario y observaciones astronómicos. El Códice de Dresde, en particular, contiene el más detallado de dichos antiguos legados mayas. Las páginas 24 y 46 a 50 de dicho códice describen el calendario de Venus con los augurios correspondientes. Nosotros hemos notado que éste es un calendario Venus-Solar, y nuestro trabajo se enfoca sobre la posibilidad de que estuviera hecho para trabajar en conjunción con la aparición de determinadas constelaciones en el cielo. Es a través del análisis y descripción de las páginas de Venus que proponemos que las columnas en cada página describen el movimiento de Venus respecto de constelaciones mayores, en fechas que corresponden a eventos especiales, mientras que las fechas calendáricas se incrementan horizontalmente dentro del periodo sinódico de Venus. Aquí presentamos veinte constelaciones mayas identificadas desde las páginas de Venus asumiendo que la primera fecha, en la página 46, fue febrero 6 de 1228. También reportamos, como entendemos, las expresiones verbales sobre el movimiento de Venus y las constelaciones.
