The book presents the theory of latticed shells as continual systems and describes its applications. It analyses the problems of statics, stability and dynamics. Generally, a classical rod deformation theory is applied. However, in some instances, more precise theories which particularly consider geometrical and physical nonlinearity are employed. A new effective method for solving general boundary value problems and its application for numerical and analytical solutions of mathematical physics and reticulated shell theory problems is described. A new method of solving the shell theory's nonlinear problems, substantially simplifying the existing algorithms is given. Questions of optimum design are discussed. Some of the findings are generalized and extended to edged and composite systems. The results of the solutions of a wide range of pressing problems are presented.

The book is devoted to borders, cross-border collaboration and cross-border integration, analyzing European border twin towns and continental integration processes as a context for the investigation. Those pairings - towns located on the border and directly neighboring each other - serve as an interesting microcosm where, on a reduced scale, continent-wide phenomena can be observed and tested. Constituting on the one hand exceptions in the territorial-political development of European states, on the other phenomena typically embodying Europe's historic territorial complexity, they are often termed 'laboratories of European integration'. This means they are forerunners of continent-wide processes, where the 'European' idea is tested in micro-scale. At the same time they challenge state boundaries, still one of the most crucial elements of sovereignty, defining the shape of the nation state. The aim of the book is to draw a picture of European integration in a down-scaled perspective by testing the cross border collaboration and integration of border twin towns. The main question raised here is how the European project is implemented on borders at the local level. It is operationalized by the secondary questions: How has the European integration process reorganized the spatial-political order, based on Westphalian principles? How do border twin towns structure their mutual relations? What is the role of the historic legacies in current collaboration and integration? Why and how do the towns integrate? And last but not least, how should the newly emerged structures crossing state boundaries be governed? The author answers these questions by testing 24 border twin towns pairs in various parts of the continent.
The Last Country
Author: Svenja Leiber
Publisher: German List
Winner of the 2015 Arno Reinfrank Literaturpreis "Ruven Preuk stands apart from the village, on an August day in 1911, and listens." Thus begins an epic bildungsroman about the life of Ruven Preuk, son of the wainwright, child of a sleepy village in Germany's north, where life is both simple and harsh. Ruven, though, is neither. He has the ability to see sounds, leading him to discover an uncanny gift for the violin. When he meets a talented teacher in the city's Jewish quarter, Ruven falls under the spell of a prodigious future. But as the twentieth century looms, Ruven's pursuit of his craft takes a turn. In The Last Country, Svenja Leiber spins a tale that moves from the mansions of a disappearing aristocracy to a communist rebellion, from a joyous village wedding to a Nazi official's threats, from the First World War to the Second. As the world Ruven knows disappears, the gifted musician must grapple with an important question: to what end has he devoted himself to his art?
This book explores and evaluates non-territorial autonomy (NTA), an important modality of ethnic and religious diversity management. Whereas multicultural liberal democracies sincerely champion equality and individual human rights, they often have considerable difficulty in accommodating culturally diverse minority communities. In most cases, minority communities do not reside within a compact space, making any territorial representation impossible. This brings into focus modalities of NTA as a possible alternative approach. NTA takes a variety of different forms, such as consociationalism or national cultural autonomy, and also encompasses other forms of representation, such as frameworks for accommodating indigenous peoples, juridical autonomy extended to religious communities, or elements of some models of multiculturalism. Using both theoretical and empirical approaches, and also including the work of legal practitioners, the essays within this volume examine the challenges and possible solutions offered by different NTA models for the effective participation of minorities in public life, addressing issues such as the limits and/or possibilities of implementing NTA models in liberal democracies, the extent to which NTA approaches can serve the goals of European integration and the European minority protection framework, and the possible role of NTA in resolving protracted territorial conflicts.
Every age has answered the questions and challenges of spiritual living in its own particular ways through its languages, arts, and lifestyles, giving seekers various concepts for guidance. In this original manifesto, bestselling author Joan Chittister delivers a roadmap based on the ancient Rule of Benedict that stands as a practical model upon which to build a satisfying life, despite the seemingly limitless (and at times meaningless) supply of options in the modern world. By giving spiritual seekers - individuals, couples, families, and small groups - a new opportunity to live a better life from the very centre of their world without ever having to withdraw from it, Chittister's new approach redefines Benedictine living for modern day seekers while remaining firmly rooted in its monastic values.
