 Department for Culture Media and Sport - making representations For a representation to be relevant it must be one that is about the likely effect of the application on the promotion of one or more of the four licensing objectives. Any representations made in relation to an application for a provisional statement, a premises licence or club premises certificate (or a variation) or in respect of a review must be about the likely effect of granting the application on the promotion of one or more of the licensing objectives. For a representation to be a repetition it is identical or substantially similar to one already considered by the authority before it determined an application, or the representation would have been considered but for the fact that they were excluded representations following a provisional statement. www.culture.gov.uk /what_we_do/Alcohol_entertainment/licensing_act_2003_explained/making_representations.htm   (2366 words)

 Exploring Multi-Layered Representations in Research While some of the representations, like the Aztec calendar, are also selected by other students because they so clearly fit the criteria, her choices of the artwork on the front of the cards is unique. The representations Julie has selected and the form she has placed them in are inherently recognizable as a calendar. It is research into representation that may open the way for teacher educators to give voice to their own and their students' meanings. www.nova.edu /ssss/QR/QR5-3/delawter.html   (5541 words)

 Illuminations: Domain Representations Recognize and use connections between a function’s symbolic representation, a function’s graphical representation, and a function’s domain. From these two representations, students should recognize that the asymptotes are x = ‑2 and at x = 3, and holes occur on the number line at ‑2 and 3. Given a verbal description for a domain, have students write the symbolic representation and draw a graph of a function with the given domain. illuminations.nctm.org /LessonDetail.aspx?id=L621   (1395 words)

 Mental Representations: Entry In this network, the input activation vector is a representation of the echo profile, and the activation of the two output nodes represents the presence of a mine or a rock, respectively. Representation tokens are usually thought of as members of a general scheme of representation. Holograms are another well-understood form of superpositional representation: the holographic plate records a large number of incident light arrays (from different angles), and (under the right conditions) is able to reproduce all these light arrays, each radiating in a distinct direction, hence as the viewer moves around the hologram, she sees different scenes. host.uniroma3.it /progetti/kant/field/mr.htm   (4979 words)

 Representation Representation can also be defined as the act of placing or stating facts in order to influence or affect the action of others. These representations, to different degrees, are thought to be somewhat realistic, or to go back to the definitions, they are thought be 'clear' or state 'a fact'. However, "representation of an underrepresented group is necessarily within the hermeneutics of domination, overcharged with allegorical significance." (170) The mass media tends to take representations of the subaltern as allegorical, meaning that since representations of the marginalized are few, the few available are thought to be representative of all marginalized peoples. www.english.emory.edu /Bahri/Representation.html   (1623 words)

 Generative Representations for Design Automation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08) Since one of the goals of automated design systems is to achieve truly novel artifacts, we focus on open-ended representations because it is difficult for a parameterization to achieve a type of design that was not conceived of by its creators. Non-generative representations are limited in their ability to scale to complex structures because of the exponential growth in the size of the design space and the increasing number of dependencies in a design. Explicit, generative representations are a procedural approach in which a design is explicitly represented by an algorithm for constructing it. ic.arc.nasa.gov /people/hornby/genre/genre.html   (925 words)

 An Approach to Analyzing Existing Process Representations As mentioned earlier, the goal of the second phase of the PSL project is to analyze existing process representations to identify the constructs and characteristics of these representations which address the information requirements found in the first phase of the project. Once the representations are classified and the requirements are categorized, one may look at the matrix to determine what types of representations are good at representing what types of requirements. Once the representation analysis phase of the project is completed and a suitable process representation is determined, we will proceed to the subsequent phases, namely: schema definition, language grammar/syntax development, language notation(s) development, pilot implementation and validation, and finally, submission as a candidate standard. www.mel.nist.gov /psl/pubs/spain/paper.htm   (3190 words)

 Modeling Hair Using Level-of-Detail Representations The three representations are shown in figure 1 to the left and they consist of strips, clusters, and individual strands. The strip representation, Figure 1(a), is modeled with a subdivision surface and is the coarsest level-of-detail. The intermediate LOD is the cluster representation Figure 1(b) and are represented as generalized cylinders created with texture-mapped subdivision surfaces. www.cs.unc.edu /~geom/HSLOD   (1442 words)

 Standards for School Mathematics: Representation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08) Representations are necessary to students' understanding of mathematical concepts and relationships. Representations allow students to communicate mathematical approaches, arguments, and understanding to themselves and to others. Unfortunately, these representations and others have often been taught and learned as if they were ends in themselves. standards.nctm.org /document/chapter3/rep.htm   (271 words)

 Graphic Organizers - Representations Representations are vehicles for communicating and sharing information. Representations are visual, verbal, symbolic or a combination. to the construction of a representation consideration should be given as to what mode the representation will be presented in. www.graphic.org /reps.html   (288 words)

 Molecular Representations   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08) The draw mode is an attribute of individual atoms and bonds, whereas wire linewidth is a model attribute. Protein secondary structure can also be shown with PipesAndPlanks, and special representations of the base and sugar components of nucleic acids (combined with sticks in the figure) can be generated with the Nucleotides tool. In Chimera, all of the representation types can be manipulated in real time, unlike the space-filling models created with the commands conic, neon, and ribbonjr. www.cgl.ucsf.edu /chimera/docs/UsersGuide/representation.html   (697 words)

 Java: Lie Group Representations Representations of the universal cover of SL(2,R) can be realized as global sections of standard weakened Harish-Chandra sheaves on the flag variety of the group PSL(2,C). For more details on representations of the universal cover of SL(2,R) you can download a short expository paper on the subject [1]. All of these representations are tempered, but the set of global sections of the standard module I({0},0,1) is not a discrete series representation. www.panix.com /~shalla/java/sl2r.html   (762 words)

 Insights Into Algebra 1 . Workshop 5 Because visual representations appeal to everyone, not just visual learners, the first representation mentioned in the Rule of Four is the geometric representation. Her visual representation involves a square in which she and the students shaded half of the area at each step to show the probability that another tails was obtained; the remaining unshaded area represents the probability of obtaining heads on that toss. Further, some students are adept at interpreting numbers and noticing patterns among them, and for these students it is important that they have the opportunity to view numbers in their most basic state. www.learner.org /channel/workshops/algebra/workshop5/teaching.html   (2712 words)

 Autodesk - Autodesk Inventor - Controlling Positional Representations   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08) A positional representation in the parent assembly has an override on the subassembly, setting a positional representative for that assembly. Use the first method when the master state of the parent assembly is best defined not by the master state of the subassembly, but by a positional representation of the subassembly, such as a hydraulic cylinder in a closed position. Examine the browser: The Left Bump positional representation of the top assembly is now nesting the shock absorber's Closed positional representation. usa.autodesk.com /adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?siteID=123112&id=5644193&linkID=4183230   (558 words)

 Representations - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia In cognitive psychology a representation is a hypothetical 'internal' 'cognitive' symbol that represents external reality. Representationalism (also known as indirect realism) is the view that representations are the main way we access external reality.

 NIPS Workshop: Overcomplete Representations and Nonlinear ICA   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08) Although most ICA research was focused on complete representations, we believe that statistical models with overcomplete representations will lead to new powerful techniques for signal- and image processing. There is also a link between overcomplete representations and efficient sensory coding in the brain which shows the vitality of the emerging new perspectives. The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers who are interested in exchanging their ideas and exploring new theories for overcomplete representations. www.cnl.salk.edu /~tewon/ICA/nips_workshop.html   (249 words)

 JBG: Personal Knowledge and Collective Representations Collective representations are part of the given for each individual, yet each individual must construct private meanings for the collective representations. Customers and bartenders must share these collective representations, but their personal knowledge associated with the mutually identified drinks are generally quite different. Further, even when crew members do use collective representations to define segments of their private action routines -- e.g., thinking to oneself, "We are now 'hauling gear'." -- crew members vary widely in the personal knowledge mobilized during that time segment (Gatewood 1985). www.lehigh.edu /~jbg1/persknow.htm   (4327 words)

 GECCO 2005 Workshop on Theory of Representations   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08) The choice of representation crucially determines the performance of a heuristic search process. In this workshop we would like to gather such work and, in a discussion between the contributors from the various lines of research, fuse the various approaches and formalisms into a common framework. This framework might clarify what the scope of a theory of representations should be, what existing algorithms may be considered as cases of representation adaptation, and how the existing literature on the topic can be integrated in a broader picture -- thereby also seeking contact with related areas in Computer Science and Machine Learning. homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk /mtoussai/gecco05   (520 words)

 Automorphic Forms and Representations   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08) I felt that there was a need for a book which would present the subject in a style which was accessible, yet based on complete proofs, revealing clearly the uniqueness principles which underlie the basic constructions. Since 1990 I have been lecturing on automorphic forms and representation theory at Stanford and the MSRI, and this book is the end result. Both the ``classical'' and ``representation theoretic'' viewpoints are covered. math.stanford.edu /~bump/book.html   (363 words)

 bibliography for automorphic and modular forms, L-functions, representations, and number theory [Garrett 1985] P.B. Garrett, `Integral representations of certain L-functions attached to 1,2, and 3 modular forms', preprint, University of Minnesota, 1985. [Gelfand-Kazhdan 1975] I.M. Gelfand and D. Kazhdan, `Representations of the group \$GL(n,k)\$ where \$k\$ is a local field', in Lie Groups and their Representations, Halsted, New York, 1975, pp. This is done in the context of real Lie groups, but easily generalizes to an adelic version, if one knows enough about the other necessary technical matters in that case. www.math.umn.edu /~garrett/m/b/bib.html   (3638 words)
