Corrupted Science: Fraud, Ideology and Politics in Science

In Discarded technology, John furnish took a desirable examine every thing technology received flawed during the centuries. yet at the least these have been sincere errors. Grant’s both soaking up follow-up examines anything extra sinister: planned hoaxes and frauds. he is taking us via a rogue’s gallery that includes faked creatures, palaeontological trickery, fake psychics, and miracle remedies that aren’t so stunning.

Mesotext : digitised emblems, modelled annotations and humanities scholarship

The main strikingly lacking piece of performance in present electronic versions is that of annotation. electronic versions should still provide a facility the place researchers can shop established and unstructured observations with recognize to the edited texts. This e-book discusses a few techniques to annotation platforms within the context of the research of logos, the 16th and 17th century literary style that joins a picture, a motto and a frequently moralizing epigram.

8. 2). 6) This is an example of a simple linear regression equation. Regression equations and the statistics which may be used to describe their ‘goodness of fit’, to a linear or other model, are explained in detail in Chapter 6. 442). 442). 6). These are examples of pattern recognition although regression models would not normally be classed as pattern recognition methods. Pattern recognition and chemometrics are more or less synonymous. Some of the pattern recognition techniques are derived from research into artificial intelligence.

We might more correctly use the term multivariate analysis since not all multivariate methods are statistical. 4 Pattern recognition is the name given to any method which helps to reveal the patterns within a data set. A definition of pattern recognition is that it ‘seeks similarities and regularities present in the data’. Some 4 But, of course, it is restricted to chemical problems. 2 Anaesthetic activity and hydrophobicity of a series of alcohols (reproduced from ref.

Having carried out the full factorial design in three factors (addition temperature, concentration of phospholene, and addition time) further experiments were made to ‘fine-tune’ the response. These probing experiments involved small changes to one factor while the others were held constant in order to determine whether an optimum had been reached in the synthetic conditions. 1 shows a response surface for the high addition time in which percentage yield is plotted against phospholene concentration and addition temperature.
