- ItemOpen AccessComputer-Assisted Linguistic Analysis(1973-05) Wolfart, H. Christoph; Pardo, FrancisLinguistic analysis depends on a variety of highly structured arrangements of textual and lexical data. These same materials also serve as input to the Inflectional Analysis Package which tests linguistic rules against a large body of spontaneously recorded data. In addition to file processing and rule testing, the identification of new stems and affixes leads to a substantive improvement of the original files. At the same time, the analytic programs may be regarded as a model of morphological analysis. In describing the Cree Project, this report also provides an outline for more detailed or more technical discussions which will appear at a later date; it also intends to present a specific example of computer applications within a relatively small-scale project. A user's guide which makes the programs accessible to other scholars is included as an appendix.

- ItemOpen AccessSpline solutions for nonlinear two point boundary value problems(1980-1-1) Usmani, Riaz A.Necessary formulas are developed for obtaining cubic, quartic, quintic, and sextic spline solutions of nonlinear boundary value problems. These methods enable us to approximate the solution of the boundary value problems, as well as their successive derivatives smoothly. Numerical evidence is included to demonstrate the relative performance of these four techniques.
- ItemOpen AccessRings with involution whose symmetric elements are central(1980-1-1) Lim, Taw PinIn a ring R with involution whose symmetric elements S are central, the skew-symmetric elements K form a Lie algebra over the commutative ring S. The classification of such rings which are 2-torsion free is equivalent to the classification of Lie algebras K over S equipped with a bilinear form f that is symmetric, invariant and satisfies [[x,y],z]=f(y,z)x−f(z,x)y. If S is a field of char ≠2, f≠0 and dimK>1 then K is a semisimple Lie algebra if and only if f is nondegenerate. Moreover, the derived algebra K′ is either the pure quaternions over S or a direct sum of mutually orthogonal abelian Lie ideals of dim≤2.

- ItemOpen AccessWordsworth's Daffodils: A Recurring Motif in Contemporary Canadian Literature.(1982) Brydon, DianaIt is a commonplace of criticism in the new literatures in English that colonial writers experienced difficulty in adapting the English language and English literary forms to the very different natural environments they experienced in all parts of the Commonwealth. Anglocentric attitudes dictated the belief that Australia was the antipodes, the reverse of the true and Northern hemisphere, that North America was a wilderness that must be turned into a garden, that India and Africa were heathen to be converted or savage to be tamed. The native inhabitants of these countries were viewed as part of their barbaric landscapes, equally in need of change to meet English standards. Finally, an imported and in the colonial context an ossifying, Romantic tradition prevented immigrants and the native-born alike from seeing their natural environments with native eyes. As the chief representative of this Romantic tradition, Wordsworth looms large.
- ItemOpen AccessLongitudinal dispersion of tracer particles in a channel bounded by Porous media using slip condition(1984-1-1) Pal, Dulal; Veerabhadraiah, R.; Shivakumar, P. N.; Rudraiah, N.Longitudinal dispersion of solute in a channel bounded by porous layers is studied using the analysis of Taylor  with BJ slip condition. The results of the present analysis are compared with those of Fung and Tang  obtained from using the no-slip condition. It is found that the effect of slip is significant only in the case when the membrane is permeable to solvent but not to the tracer. However, in the case when the membrane is permeable to both the tracer and the solvent, we find that our results coincide with those of Fung and Tang .
