 Oslo Accords - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Oslo Accords were a culmination of a series of secret and public agreements, dating particularly from the Madrid Conference of 1991 onwards, and negotiated between the Israeli government and the Palestine Liberation Organization (acting as representatives of the Palestinian people) in 1993 as part of a peace process trying to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Also, the expansion of the settlements and blockades which caused the deterioration of economic conditions caused frustration and a corresponding descent in support for the accord and those who stood behind its ratification.
Since the start of the al-Aqsa Intifada, the Oslo Accords are viewed with increasing disfavor by the Israeli public.

OSLO is used primarily to determine the optimum sizes and shapes of the elements in optical systems in cameras, consumer products, communications systems, military/space applications, scientific instruments, etc. In addition, it is used to simulate the performance of optical systems, and to develop specialized software tools for optical design, testing, and manufacturing.

OSLO was the first program used for serious optical design on desktop computers, and it has been developed far more extensively than other software.
