When the BBC launched the world's first regular, high-definition television service on 2 November, 1936 it was the culmination of decades of technological innovations. More than this, however, the service meant that the principle of television had finally found its place. The Birth of British Television - A History traces the early history and development of television, from the experiments of amateurs to the institutionalised developments that led to the world's first regular, high definition television service. Author Mark Aldridge provides a clear, in-depth and accessible introduction for those either exploring the period for the first time or seeking new insights into the beginnings of the industry. In tracing the origins and development of television, Aldridge focuses on a number of important factors including the attitude of the press towards early television and examines the way that expectations of television changed over time prior to its official launch. Utilising new research, this illuminating study examines how the aims for a new television service developed, and the extent to which content and technology were linked. The Birth of British Television approaches this formative period from several perspectives, from private individuals to the BBC and government, while also examining the broader opinions at the time towards the new medium through press reports and feedback from the general public. Also included is an assessment of early programming, which helps to offer a new and profound evaluation of the development of early television. Mark Aldridge is a Lecturer in Film and TV Studies at Southampton Solent University, UK. He specialises in British television and both film and television history. His previous publications include T is for Television (2008), an analysis of the work of Russell T. Davies, co-written with Andy Murray.
The End of the Beginning This story starts off where many end. As I sit in front of my computer, the thoughts of many things bounce around my skull like a silver metallic ball in an old pinball machine. I need to pay my back rent. I have to prepare for a defamation trial in small claims court. I have no food in the fridge. I'm over $20,000 dollars in the hole. My company needs a new website. I haven't released a new record in months. I have one solitary quarter to my name. Literally. I need my Clonazepam. Obstacles such as these have broken many men, but I will not fall victim to the same fate. You can attribute this proclamation to my unwavering confidence, blind faith or the egotistical nature of a champion. Nevertheless, the future will be a testament to these words. I will not fail.
This book contains lectures presented at the MIT symposium on the 100th anniversary of Norbert Wiener's birth held in October 1994. The topics reflect Wiener's main interests while emphasizing current developments. In addition to lectures dealing directly with problems on which Wiener worked, such as potential theory, harmonic analysis, Wiener-Hopf theory, and Paley-Wiener theory, the book discusses the following topics: * Fourier integral operators with complex phase (a contemporary successor to the Paley-Wiener theory) * statistical aspects of quantum mechanics and of liquid crystals * financial markets, including the new trading strategies for options based on Wiener processes * statistical methods of genetic research * models of the nervous system, pattern recognition, and the nature of intelligence The volume includes reviews on Norbert Wiener's contributions from historical and current perspectives. This book gives mathematical researchers an overview of new mathematical problems presented by other areas and gives researchers in other fields a broad overview of the ways in which advanced mathematics might be useful to them. This text will also be of interest to those working in applications.
