Boundaries of Smooth Strictly Convex Sets in the Euclidean Plane R2  [PDF]
Horst Kramer
Open Journal of Discrete Mathematics (OJDM) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojdm.2017.72008
Abstract: We give a characterization of the boundaries of smooth strictly convex sets in the Euclidean plane R2?based on the existence and uniqueness of inscribed triangles.
GRS Method for Uncertainty and Sensitivity Evaluation of Code Results and Applications
Horst Glaeser
Science and Technology of Nuclear Installations , 2008, DOI: 10.1155/2008/798901
Abstract: During the recent years, an increasing interest in computational reactor safety analysis is to replace the conservative evaluation model calculations by best estimate calculations supplemented by uncertainty analysis of the code results. The evaluation of the margin to acceptance criteria, for example, the maximum fuel rod clad temperature, should be based on the upper limit of the calculated uncertainty range. Uncertainty analysis is needed if useful conclusions are to be obtained from “best estimate” thermal-hydraulic code calculations, otherwise single values of unknown accuracy would be presented for comparison with regulatory acceptance limits. Methods have been developed and presented to quantify the uncertainty of computer code results. The basic techniques proposed by GRS are presented together with applications to a large break loss of coolant accident on a reference reactor as well as on an experiment simulating containment behaviour.
MARIO VARGAS LLOSA: LA FICCIONALIZACIóN DE LA HISTORIA EN LA GUERRA DEL FIN DEL MUNDO
Nitschack,Horst;
Revista chilena de literatura , 2011, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-22952011000300006
Abstract: in the novel the war of the end of the world (la guerra del fin del mundo) mario vargas llosa presents a rewriting and fictionalization of euclides da cunha's foundational text os sertdes. the article relates this novel to the radical change in mario vargas llosa's ideological and political convictions in the 1970s and intends to analyze how the author's neo-liberal positions are reflected in the poetics of this novel. the central argument is that in this process of fictionalization of euclides da cunha's text, two strategies can be discovered: the first being the individualization of history, that is, the narrative privileges the subjective experiences of the characters to explain their disposition to violence; the second refers to the fictionalization's paradox of pretending to represent the unrepresentable while letting the reader know that it is just fiction. in other words, the reader has to decide to what extent s/he is willing to identify the narration with the historical "truth". in both cases we are dealing with a poetics that values individual and subjective responsibility instead of the individual's dependence on the collective or the narrative's commitment to objectify history.

The Internet as an Instrument for Collecting Customer-related Data: A Data Quality Perspective
Horst Treiblmaier
International Journal of Electronic Business Management , 2006,
Abstract: The Internet has increasingly replaced or supplemented other communication andtransaction channels. Due to the simplicity of getting information and conductingtransactions, a steadily increasing number of consumers are using the World Wide Web forinforming themselves and shopping online. From a company’s point of view, these changesin consumers’ behavior have generated a multitude of opportunities to collect data, eitherwith the Internet users being aware of it (e.g. when conducting transactions or filling out asurvey) or by analyzing their traces on the Web (e.g. cookies or log files). Along with theincreased opportunities of easily generating vast amount of consumer data arise thoseproblems which pertain to the control of data quality. The information which users providevoluntarily is especially difficult to validate against a number of important data qualityattributes, such as believability, accuracy and reputation. By conducting two empiricalstudies (a Web site analysis and a survey) this paper shows how Austrian companies, mostof which are small and medium-sized enterprises (SME’s), use the Internet for collectingdata. Furthermore, the results demonstrate how issues of data quality are dealt with andhighlight the importance of a comprehensive data management.
Vico’s Three Realms. From “Liber metaphysicus” to Category Theory
STEINKE, Horst
Laboratorio dell'ISPF , 2012,
Abstract: This essay examines Vico’s De Antiquissima (Metaphysics) with a view to delineating, first, the three fundamental realms in Vico’s epistemology of science – metaphysics, mathematics, “physics” – and, secondly, Vico’s conception of their interrelationships. The study argues that Vico’s epistemology finds certain analogues both in actual mathematical practice as well as in modern conceptual mathematics (Category Theory). This correspondence, the article argues, makes Vico’s epistemology still relevant to modern mathematical physics.
MARIO VARGAS LLOSA: LA FICCIONALIZACIóN DE LA HISTORIA EN LA GUERRA DEL FIN DEL MUNDO
Horst Nitschack
Revista Chilena de Literatura , 2011,
Abstract: En la novela La Guerra del fin del mundo Mario Vargas Llosa presenta una reescritura y ficcionalización del texto fundacional Os Sertdes de Euclides da Cunha. El presente artículo sitúa esta novela en el momento de un cambio radical de las convicciones ideológicas y políticas de Mario Vargas Llosa en la década de los 70 y se propone analizar de qué manera las nuevas posiciones neoliberales asumidas por el autor se reflejan en la poética de la novela. Como argumento central se sostiene que en el proceso de ficcionalización del texto referencial de Euclides da Cunha se dejan descubrir dos estrategias: la primera es la individualización de la Historia, es decir, la narración privilegia las experiencias subjetivas de los protagonistas para explicar sus disposiciones a la violencia; en la segunda, la ficcionalización asume una paradoja: finge representar lo irrepresentable advirtiendo al mismo tiempo al lector que se trata solamente de ficción, es decir, ella responsabiliza al propio lector en qué medida él está dispuesto a identificar la narración con la 'verdad' histórica. En los dos casos nos encontramos frente a una poética que valoriza la responsabilidad individual y lo subjetivo en vez de la dependencia individual de lo colectivo y del compromiso de la narración con la historia objetiva.
