  Epic poetry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The epic is a broadly defined genre of poetry, and one of the major forms of narrative literature.
In the West, the Iliad, Odyssey, and the Nibelungenlied; and in the East, the Mahabharata, Ramayana, and Shahnama are often cited as examples of the epic genre.
Invocatio (pray to the muse [of the epic]), Prepositio (introduction of the epic's theme), Enumeratio (counting the fighting armys / heroes), In medias res (start from the middle of an event), Deus ex machina (interruption / miracle from a god), Anticipatio (prediction), and Ephiteton ornans (permanent attributes of the hero[es]).

 The EPIC Architecture
EPIC provides a framework for constructing models of human-system interaction that are accurate and detailed enough to be useful for practical design purposes.
The most important issue that we are studying with EPIC is the nature of human multiple-task performance: these are situations in which a person is executing more than one task simultaneously, such as tuning a radio while driving a car, or making tactica l decisions while tracking a specific target in a military fighter aircraft.
Our goal in the EPIC architecture development is to abstract these limitations and abilities from the substantial research literature in human performance, and then realize them in the form of computational modules that represent the known properties of human information processing.

PMEL has developed the EPIC I/O system library (EPS library), which is layered on top of the netCDF input/output library, to write netCDF files with the conventions described here.

All EPIC CCDs operate in photon counting mode with a fixed, mode dependent frame read-out frequency, producing event lists, that is tables with one entry line per received event, listing (among others) attributes of the events such as the position at which they were registered, their arrival time and their energies.
The EPIC consortium is made up of ten institutes in four nations: the United Kingdom, Italy, France and Germany.
EPIC consists of three cameras, at whose heart are charge-coupled devices (CCD) which register and record the energy of incoming X-ray photons and a Radiation Monitor to register the dose of radiation seen by the spacecraft as it crosses the radiation belts surrounding the Earth.

 EPIC-Oxford   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
EPIC (the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition) was initiated in 1992 and is the largest detailed study of diet and health ever undertaken.
The strategy for establishing the EPIC-Oxford cohort was to recruit participants with a wide range of diets by targeting vegetarians as well as participants from the general UK population.
As such EPIC-Oxford is of great scientific value to the EPIC study as a whole, because the diets of vegetarians, and especially vegans, differ substantially from those of meat-eaters and this range in diets makes it easier to detect relationships between nutrition and health.

 Epic Films
Epics, costume dramas, historical dramas, war film epics, medieval romps, or 'period pictures' are tales that often cover a large expanse of time set against a vast, panoramic backdrop.
Epics are often called costume dramas, since they emphasize the trappings of a period setting: historical pageantry, costuming and wardrobes, locale, spectacle, decor and a sweeping visual style.
Another subgenre of epics are 'biopics' or biographical works, that dramatize the life of an actual historical figure (usually a 'Great Man', politician or President, entertainer, inventor/scientist, military leader, artist, sports hero or celebrity).
