This publication goals to supply the medical group with a unique and priceless method in keeping with fractal geometry innovations at the vital houses and techniques of various environmental structures. the translation of complicated environmental platforms utilizing glossy fractal ways is in comparison and contrasted with the extra classical techniques. The booklet will give you the basic wisdom important for fixing functional environmental difficulties. additionally, it examinea how the fractal strategy has been utilized with the intention to comprehend the constitution and reactivity of average, environmental platforms together with flocs, sediments, soils, microorganisms and humic components.

Flüchten oder Bleiben? Rekonstruktion biographischer Verläufe und Ressourcen von Emigranten im Nationalsozialismus

Sylke Bartmann zeigt anhand der Rekonstruktion biographischer Verläufe von Emigranten unterschiedliche Umgehensweisen mit dem Nationalsozialismus und damit verbundene Repressalien und Bedrohungen auf. Der Fokus richtet sich dabei auf den Einzelnen als Akteur und Gestalter seines eigenen Lebens. Es wird die Frage beantwortet, inwieweit in den Prozessen der Biographisierung Ressourcen zum Ausdruck kommen, die das Leben im Nationalsozialismus (weiterhin) als zusammenhängend und sinnvoll erscheinen lassen - auch wenn dem einzelnen Menschen die Welt manchmal sinnentleert gegenüberzustehen scheint.

Objects are more lacunar if their gap sizes are distributed over a wider range. 15c. A more precise definition of lacunarity was introduced by Gefen et al. [44], who viewed lacunarity as a measure of the deviation of a geometric object from translational invariance. 15 Examples of 2nd iterate prefractals of Sierpinski carpets having different appearances, but identical fractal (similarity) dimension. In all three cases, the iterative construction process consists of dividing the initiator in 7 × 7 = 49 squares, and removing 3 × 3 = 9 squares.

At each step, the number of line segments increases by a factor of 4. curve (the von Koch curve) has an infinite number of vanishingly small segments and has a total length tending to infinity. 4, one takes the part of I4 that corresponds to the interval [0, 1/3] of the initiator, and scales this part up horizontally and vertically by three, one obtains I3 . In the limit n → ∞, however, this same scaling up of any segment of In would reproduce the von Koch curve itself. Furthermore, like the Peano–Hilbert space-filling curves, the von Koch curve is nowhere differentiable.

In stage n, the length is thus 3n . If one pursues the above construction procedure to the limit as n → ∞, the number of straight-line segments and their total length tend to infinity. e. it does not allow a tangent at any of its points (which are all ‘corners’). 3). g. 14, 15]. e. it never intersects or touches itself. g. 5, 14 (pp. 89–93)]. 4, starts with a line segment, I0 , of unit length. This initiator is replaced by the generator shown as the curve I1 , consisting of four segments of length 1/3.
