      The inverse problem in gravimetry is to find a domain ð • inside the reference domain ω from boundary measurements of gravitational force outside ω. We found that about five parameters of the unknown ð • can be stably ...
    • Xunzi: Moral education and transformation 

      Lu, Xiufen (Routledge, 2020-11-08)
      A fair amount of recent Xunzi scholarship has focused on the problem of moral transformation. The problem being addressed supposedly arises this way. According to Xunzi, human nature is innately or inherently evil; ...

    • The Genius of the 'Original Imitation Game' Test 

      Sterrett, Susan G. (Springer, 2020-10-29)
      Twenty years ago in "Turing's Two Tests for Intelligence" I distinguished two distinct tests to be found in Alan Turing's 1950 paper "Computing Machinery and Intelligence": one by then very well-known, the other neglected. ...
