The book, Women in Oromo Folktales and Proverbs, uncovers the images of women in folktales and popular sayings of the Oromo of East Wollega, Western Oromia, Ethiopia. The author made an attempt to review and discuss folktales (their concepts, categories, characteristics...) and popular sayings thoroughly. He collected a number of folktales and proverbs from the study area and analyzed them critically on how women have been portrayed in the genres. As it is known folktales and popular sayings belong to the verbal aspects of folklore and are believed to reflect a given society's mode of thinking, tradition, attitudes, ways of life and the likes. The book discloses that Oromo women and the feminine attributes have been portrayed negatively in most of the tales and sayings widely used or told in Western Oromia. Most of the folktales and popular sayings in which men and women are characterized seem to have been used for maintaining and validating patriarchy. Oromo women's image, role and status in the society seem to have been diminished and distorted to such a very great extent.
This book presents the development of a GAPD (Geiger-mode Avalanche PhotoDiode) pixel detector aimed mostly at particle tracking at future linear colliders. GAPDs offer outstanding qualities to meet the challenging requirements of ILC (International Linear Collider) and CLIC (Compact LInear Collider), such as an extraordinary high sensitivity, virtually infinite gain and ultra-fast response time, apart from compatibility with standard CMOS technologies. In particular, GAPD detectors can be read out after each single bunch crossing, a unique quality that none of its competitors can offer at the moment. In spite of all these advantages, GAPD detectors suffer from two main problems. On the one side, there exist noise phenomena inherent to the sensor, which induce noise pulses that cannot be distinguished from real particle events and also worsen the detector occupancy to unacceptable levels. On the other side, the fill-factor is too low and gives rise to a reduced detection efficiency. Solutions to the two problems commented that are compliant with the severe specifications of the next generation of particle colliders have been thoroughly investigated.
In the present book, the high cross-polarization of the offset parabolic reflector has been suppressed by using a multi-mode matched feed. The concept of matched feed is thoroughly described at the beginning of the book. The multi-mode matched feed has been realized in three different waveguide structures, i.e., rectangular, cylindrical and corrugated structure. The detailed designs of all the three matched feed structures have been presented in the book. Through extensive numerical as well as experimental results, it has been verified that the proposed matched feeds effectively suppress the undesired high cross-polarization of the offset parabolic reflector antenna. The feeds also remove the beam squinting in the secondary radiation pattern of the reflector, when circular polarization is employed. Finally, a few practical applications of the proposed feeds are discussed and the corresponding results are summarized.
The book focuses on the electrical properties and photoinduced processes in polymer based field-effect transistors PFETs. The photoinduced drain current in the PFETs results from a variety of possible pathways, and is a consequence of a complex charge generation, recombination and transport processes. These processes are observed to be dependent on the gate voltage and demonstrate a coupling between the photoexcitation and transistor features. Considerable increase in drain current upon irradiation, followed by an extremely slow relaxation upon terminating the illumination is the striking feature in poly(3-hexylthiophene) based transistor operated under accumulation mode. In depletion mode, the photoresponse becomes strongly dependent on gate voltage. Low dark current in the background, accompanied by large photosensitivity in this mode is exploited to observe memory effect including write, read, store and erase operations. The unique combination of gate bias and light as input parameters for charge transport in polymer transistor and the spatial information of the gate voltage dependent photocarrier generation region are thoroughly investigated using spectroscopic analysis.
Performance evaluation studies constitute a considerable portion of the wireless communications literature. The importance of these studies stems from the fact that theyprovide system designers with feedback on the quality of their designs and hence, anopportunity for enhancements before actual deployment.This book represents a comprehensive study on the performance of mobile radio networks. It is divided into two main parts where in each part adifferent perspective is adopted: a system-level perspective is considered in the firstand a link-level one in the second. In the first part, the TDD mode of operation of WCDMA technology is thoroughly investigated under different scenarios and a complete framework forperformance evaluation is proposed. In the second part, a number of problems related to the performance of communicationsystems over the Weibull fading channel are addressed. In particular, the performance of different diversity schemes is extensively studied under different scenarios involving theexistence/non-existence of cochannel interference. Throughout this work, Monte Carlo simulations are provided to complement theanalytical results presented.
Chromatographic separations are usually realized in isocratic mode, i.e., with constant temperature, pressure or solvent composition of the mobile phase during the process. However, it is well known that the adsorption behavior of the system can be strongly affected by changes of these operating parameters in gradient mode. In the work presented here several aspects of applying the gradient technique for preparative scale of both batch and continuous chromatography are discussed. This analysis is included in the main PART II of the work. It starts from the examination of a batch system consisting of a single column. Subsequently, strategies of using gradient in a continuous separation with a parallel multi-column arrangement and with the SMB system are discussed. Before analyzing the gradient technique the application of mathematical models of process dynamics for predicting chromatographic separations is thoroughly examined in PART I of the work. Moreover, in PART I several aspects of the application of numerical methods for solving the model equations are discussed.
The front-line workers face directly to the dangers may exist in their work, it is the grassroots organizations that should be enforced on safety management in order to prevent accidents. Experiences and Lessons both show that a suitable risk management mode is the prerequisite to prevent accidents. In this book, a simple and effective risk management mode for front-line workers is introduced, i.e., the "2+1" program, in which 2 documents is for regulating the behavior of person and 1 checklist is for checking the state of hardware. Because all kinds of accidents are caused either by unsafe behavior of person or by unsafe state of hardware, the mode can be used to prevent all kinds of accidents effectively. The underlining principle and application of the model, as well as the document structure and steps of compilation are all described in the book, through which the model is explained thoroughly. The book will be helpful to those who are interest in HSE management of grassroots organization, such as HSE scholars, experts and students, certainly, the mode will help the managers who want do better in safety management of their grassroots organization but lack of effective methods.
