The Venus Blueprint: Uncovering the Ancient Science of by Richard Merrick

By Richard Merrick

In 2010, Richard Merrick took a relations journey to Scotland's Rosslyn chapel—the enigmatic fifteenth-century temple made well-known through Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code. Little did he comprehend he used to be approximately to embark upon an highbrow and private trip that might bring about the invention of a real-life misplaced symbol—one that unearths the relationship among the world's so much sacred temples and opens up a treasure trove of misplaced technology and historical secrets.

the logo he discovers—the Venus Blueprint—is according to that planet's orbital trend, which takes the form of a five-pointed megastar whilst noticeable from Earth. As Merrick digs deeper, he realizes the Venus Blueprint used to be an essential component of the layout template of a few of the main major non secular structure round the world--including St. Peter's Basilica within the Vatican, the Roman Pantheon, the Greek Parthenon, the Temple of Jerusalem, and the nice Pyramid of Giza, in addition to many constructions designed via the secretive Freemason society.

Upon additional exam, Merrick is astounded to find that temples designed utilizing the Venus Blueprint are endowed with amazing acoustics that, while provided with definitely the right tones and frequencies, are in a position to harmonizing with Earth's resonant frequencies and evoking altered states of recognition. He then proposes a desirable proposal: may perhaps or not it's that the ancients used those harmonics to reinforce entheogenically precipitated visions—to commune with the divine and unencumber the gods within?

Supported through a magnificent array of historic learn and clinical research, The Venus Blueprint bargains compelling proof of an old misplaced tradition that used to be either spiritually and scientifically advanced.

Waveform Analysis of Sound (Mathematics for Industry) by Mikio Tohyama

By Mikio Tohyama

What is that this sound? What does that sound point out? those are questions often heard in day-by-day dialog. Sound effects from the vibrations of elastic media and in lifestyle presents informative signs of occasions occurring within the surrounding setting. In examining auditory sensations, the human ear turns out rather stable at extracting the sign signatures from sound waves. even if exploring auditory processing schemes could be past our features, resource signature research is a truly beautiful zone within which signal-processing schemes should be built utilizing mathematical expressions.

This ebook is electrified by way of such processing schemes and is orientated to signature research of waveforms. lots of the examples within the booklet are taken from info of sound and vibrations; notwithstanding, the equipment and theories are in most cases formulated utilizing mathematical expressions instead of by means of acoustical interpretation. This booklet could accordingly be beautiful and informative for scientists, engineers, researchers, and graduate scholars who're attracted to the mathematical illustration of signs and the functions of Fourier analysis.

The publication may be defined as being essentially self-contained yet does suppose readers are accustomed to introductory themes in discrete sign processing, as within the discrete Fourier remodel. for that reason this e-book could be additionally usable as a textbook in graduate classes in utilized arithmetic on themes resembling advanced features. just about all medical phenomena are sensed as waves propagating in a few house. through the years, waveform research has for that reason been one of many resilient educational parts of analysis and nonetheless is visible as fertile flooring for improvement. particularly, waveform research in response to the idea of linear platforms will be an exceptional instance the place a actual interpretation will be given to the mathematical thought of advanced services by way of value, attitude, poles, and zeros of advanced features.

For readers who're attracted to the actual points of sound and vibration facts or uncomplicated formula of wave equations and their options, the e-book Sound and Signals through M. Tohyama (Springer 2011) is suggested. it could actually function a complementary spouse to this current quantity or independently as a superb reference.

Speech Synthesis and Recognition, 2nd Edition by endy Holmes

By endy Holmes

With the becoming impression of data expertise on everyday life, speech is changing into more and more vital for delivering a normal technique of conversation among people and machines. This broadly remodeled and up-to-date re-creation of Speech Synthesis and Recognition is an easy-to-read advent to present speech expertise. geared toward complex undergraduates and graduates in digital engineering, desktop technology and knowledge know-how, the publication is usually appropriate to specialist engineers who have to comprehend sufficient approximately speech expertise so as to observe it effectively and to paintings successfully with speech specialists. No complicated mathematical skill is needed and no expert earlier wisdom of phonetics or of the homes of speech indications is believed. Speech Synthesis and Recognition: + Explains the complexity of speech verbal exchange; + Describes mechanisms and types of human speech construction and belief; + Covers concatentive synthesis strategies and structure synthesis by way of rule, in addition to the processing required for synthesis from textual content; + Introduces equipment for automated speech acceptance through whole-word template matching and by means of statistical development matching utilizing hidden Markov tools + Describes functional suggestions that give a contribution to the profitable implementation of speech popularity structures, together with these for spotting very huge vocabularies; + contains chapters protecting the similar applied sciences of electronic speech coding and automated popularity of speaker features; + Discusses functions and function of present speech know-how. through the e-book the emphasis is on explaining underlying ideas with adequate yet no longer pointless aspect, with a view to give you the reader with an intensive grounding within the difficulties and methods in speech synthesis and popularity. This e-book is accordingly excellent as an creation prior to tackling extra complicated texts.

Jim Marshall - The Father of Loud: The Story of the Man by Rich Maloof

By Rich Maloof

(Book). within the early Nineteen Sixties, a handful of brash British childrens wanted a brand new sound for a brand new form of track. They marched right into a track shop of their blue-collar city and requested the gentleman in the back of the table to construct them an amplifier with leg-shaking energy and jaw-dropping tone. So he did. This first-ever biography tells the tale of Jim Marshall founding father of Marshall Amplification and author of guitar amplifiers that experience outlined the sound of rock and are prized by way of rock guitarists of all ages and elegance from his early life while he used to be clinically determined with a unprecedented bone sickness that limited him to a physique forged for 9 years, to his level luck as a crooner and big-band drummer, via his improvement of the "Marshall Stack" and supreme upward thrust to the vanguard of the tune software undefined. 40 years after Jim Marshall offered his first JTM45, 3 generations of guitarists and fanatics revere the identify. Highlights in Marshall background, photos of amp anatomy, information about recognized avid gamers' most well-liked types, and testimonials from guitar stars around out this engrossing luck tale. Full-color photographs all through. "What Jim marshall did ... used to be offer English heavy steel and blues avid gamers of the mid '60s and early '70s with those weapons." Pete Townshend
