A presente tese de doutorado, intitulada Cartas provincianas: correspondência entre Gilberto Freyre e Manuel Bandeira, é composta pela edição fidedigna da correspondência de Gilberto Freyre (1900-1987) e Manuel Bandeira (1886-1968), acompanhada pela edição de alguns textos esparsos da obra de ambos. Como complemento, a tese traz estudo que pretende não só apresentar aspectos do diálogo, num sentido amplo, entre Freyre e Bandeira, mas também estender a discussão para leituras que ambos fazem acerca do processo modernizador em curso no país na primeira metade do século XX. Pretende-se, desse modo, facultar material inédito criteriosamente editado, assim como desenvolver uma reflexão sobre o debate intelectual e artístico em cena no Modernismo brasileiro.; Cartas provincianas: correspondência entre Gilberto Freyre e Manuel Bandeira is a doctoral thesis whose main elements are an edition of the correspondence between Gilberto Freyre (1900-1987) and Manuel Bandeira (1886-1968) and a selection and edition of some texts of both writers. As a complement this work presents a study that aims not only to bring some aspects of the dialogue (in a broadly sense) between Freyre and Bandeira, but also to extend this discussion to their readings of the Brazilian modernization process in the first half of the twentieth century.

Demonstramos um teorema da correspondência do tipo Galois para ações de álgebras de Hopf pontuais de dimensão finita em álgebras primas. A correspondência acontece entre subálgebras racionalmente completas e comódulo subálgebras. As subálgebras racionalmente completas são subálgebras da álgebra prima, enquanto os comódulo subálgebras são comódulo subálgebras do produto smash entre o centralizador da álgebra prima em sua álgebra de quocientes de Martindale simétrica e a álgebra de Hopf.; A Galois-type correspondence theorem for prime algebras acted upon by a finite dimensional pointed Hopf algebra is proved. The correspondence involves rationally complete subalgebras and comodule subalgebras. The rationally complete subalgebras are subalgebras of the prime algebra, while the comodule subalgebras are comodule subalgebras of the smash product between the centralizer of the prime algebra in its symmetric Martindale quotient algebra and the Hopf algebra.

Tradução comentada da correspondência entre Henry James (Nova York, 1843 Londres, 1916) e Robert Louis Stevenson (Edimburgo, 1850 Samoa, 1894), inédita em português. A correspondência começou em dezembro de 1884, e se estendeu por uma década. As cartas revelam uma amizade algo improvável entre dois escritores muito diferentes, e um interesse compartilhado pela arte da ficção. O material analisado joga luz sobre uma discussão importante acerca da literatura em um momento decisivo, à véspera das transformações por que passaria no início do século XX. O ensaio introdutório visa reconstituir o curso dessa discussão e apontar algumas de suas implicações.; Annotated translation of the correspondence between Henry James (New York, 1843 London, 1916) and Robert Louis Stevenson (Edinburg, 1850 Samoa, 1894), unpublished in Portuguese. The correspondence began in December 1884 and lasted for a decade. The letters reveal an unlikely friendship between two very different writers and a shared concern for the art of fiction. The material examined sheds light on an important discussion about literature at a decisive moment, on the eve of the transformations that it was to undergo at the beginning of the twentieth century. The introductory essay seeks to recreate the course of this discussion and point some of its implications.

O objetivo desta dissertação é revisar os operadores laços de Wilson no contexto da correspondência AdS/CFT. Estes operadores, presentes em qualquer teoria de calibre, são importantes por nos fornecer um parâmetro de ordem para a transição de fase confinante/desconfinante. Além disso, eles são particularmente importantes no estudo da correspondência AdS/ CFT pois: i) Eles nos dão, em alguns casos, resultados exatos graças ao fato de poderem ser localizados em um modelo de matrizes, desta forma nos permitindo fazer testes altamente não triviais da correspondência; ii) Eles são os objetos da teoria de calibre que são duais as cordas propagando no interior do espaço, nos dando um rico dicionário entre quantidades no interior (AdS) e na borda do espaço (CFT). Depois de revisarmos os laços de Wilson em teorias de calibre e a correspondência Ads/CFT, introduziremos a definição dos laços de Wilson supersimétricos 1/2 BPS. Calcularemos eles para o caso de um acoplamento fraco e para qualquer outro valor da constante de acoplamento usando técnicas de modelos de matrizes. Finalmente, compararemos nossos resultados com computações de superfícies minimais no interior do espaço, encontrando uma concordância perfeita.; The aim of this thesis is to review Wilson loop operators in the contexto f the AdS/CFT correspondence.

Supersymmetric M/string compactifications to five dimensions contain BPS black string solutions with magnetic graviphoton charge (P) and near-horizon geometries which are quotients of (AdS 3 imes S^2). The holographic duals are typically known 2D CFTs with central charges (c L = c R = 6P^3) for large (P). These same 5D compactifications also contain non-BPS but extreme Kerr-Newman black hole solutions with (SU(2)) Lspin (J L) and electric graviphoton charge (Q) obeying (Q^3 le J L^2). It is shown that in the maximally charged limit (Q^3 ightarrow J L^2), the near-horizon geometry coincides precisely with the right-moving temperature (T R = 0) limit of the black string with magnetic charge (P = J L^frac{1}{3}). The known dual of the latter is identified as the (cL = c R =6J L) CFT predicted by the Kerr/CFT correspondence. Moreover, at linear order away from maximality, one finds a (T R ot= 0) quotient of the AdS 3 factor of the black string solution and the associated thermal CFT entropy reproduces the linearly sub-maximal Kerr-Newman entropy. Beyond linear order, for general (Q^3 < J L^2), one has a finite-temperature quotient of a warped deformation of the magnetic string geometry. The corresponding dual deformation of the magnetic string CFT potentially supplies...

This paper describes the problem of three-dimensional object correspondence and presents an algorithm for matching two three-dimensional colored surfaces using polygon reduction and the minimization of an energy function. At the core of this algorithm is a novel data-dependent multi-resolution pyramid for polygonal surfaces. The algorithm is general to correspondence between any two manifolds of the same dimension embedded in a higher dimensional space. Results demonstrating correspondences between various objects are presented and a method for incorporating user input is also detailed.

The paper presents a simple model for recovering affine shape and correspondence from two orthographic views of a 3D object. It is shown that four corresponding points along two orthographic views, taken under similar illumination conditions, determine affine shape and correspondence for all other points. The scheme is useful for purposes of visual recognition by generating novel views of an object given two model views. It is also shown that the scheme can handle objects with smooth boundaries, to a good approximation, without introducing any modifications or additional model views.

Experiments with correspondence algorithms using dynamic programming have shown that robust and high quality correspondences can be computed, even between images acquired from radically different viewpoints, on different days, under different lighting conditions, and for scenes of discontinuous depth change. This paper examines the underlying reasons that these algorithms obtain such results. The spatial structure of a scene and image can be represented by ordering image features by spatial position. Structure and its representation by order describe nonlocal characteristics of a scene and image which remain invariant to changes in viewpoint. Thus, order from structure provides an excellent mechanism for detecting correspondence between different images of a scene. Once such an ordering is established, dynamic programming provides one method for resolving remaining ambiguities. The notion of correspondence from structure is developed by comparison with other underlying constraints discovered in prior work on correspondence. Some observations about the theoretical and experimental performance of correspondence algorithms based on order from structure are made.

There is a growing body of evidence that the perception of visual stimuli is altered when they occur near the observer’s hand relative to other locations in space (see Brockmole, Davoli, Abrams, & Witt, 2013; for a review). Several accounts have been offered to explain the pattern of performance across different tasks. These have typically focused on attentional explanations (attentional prioritization and detailed attentional evaluation of stimuli in nearhand space), but more recently, it has been suggested that near-hand space enjoys enhanced magnocellular (M) input. Here we differentiate between the attentional and M-cell accounts, via a task that probes the roles of position consistency and color consistency in determining dynamic object correspondence through occlusion. We found that placing the hands near the visual display made observers use only position consistency and not color in determining object correspondence through occlusion, which is consistent with the fact that M-cells are relatively insensitive to color. In contrast, placing observers’ hands far from stimuli allowed both color and position contribute. This is evidence in favor of the M-cell enhancement account of altered vision near the hands.; This research was supported by an Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Early Career Research Award (DECRA) awarded to S.C.G.

The caloron correspondence (introduced in [32] and generalised in [25, 33, 41]) is a tool that gives an equivalence between principal G-bundles based over the manifold M x S¹ and principal LG-bundles on M, where LG is the Frechet Lie group of smooth loops in the Lie group G. This thesis uses the caloron correspondence to construct certain differential forms called string potentials that play the same role as Chern-Simons forms for loop group bundles. Following their construction, the string potentials are used to define degree 1 differential characteristic classes for ΩU(n)-bundles. The notion of an Ω vector bundle is introduced and a caloron correspondence is developed for these objects. Finally, string potentials and Ω vector bundles are used to define an Ω bundle version of the structured vector bundles of [38]. The Ω model of odd differential K-theory is constructed using these objects and an elementary differential extension of odd K-theory appearing in [40].; Thesis (M.Phil.) -- University of Adelaide, School of Mathematical Sciences, 2013

The observation of McKay relates exceptional curves in the minimal resolution of quotient singularities $A^2_C/G$ for finite subgroups $GsubsetSL(2,C)$ to the representation theory of the group $G$: the representation graph of the group $G$ is isomorphic to the intersection graph of the exceptional curves, both are graphs of ADE type (classical McKay correspondence). The McKay correspondence in a broader sense describes the geometry of resolutions of quotient singularities $X/G$ in terms of the $G$-equivariant geometry of $X$. A method to construct resolutions of quotient singularities is the $G$-Hilbert scheme $GHilb X$ for a scheme $X$ with $G$-operation. It parametrises $G$-clusters, these are $G$-stable finite closed subschemes $Zsub X$, whose coordinate ring as a representation is isomorphic to the regular representation of $G$. In this work we consider McKay correspondence over fields that are not necessarily algebraically closed and for finite group schemes instead of simply finite groups. Let $GsubsetSL(2,K)$ be a finite subgroup scheme over a field $K$ of characteristic $0$. Over non algebraically closed $K$ there may exist both representations of $G$ and components of the exceptional divisor in the minimal resolution of $A^2_K/G$ that are irreducible over $K$ but split over the algebraic closure. We show that these two kinds of splittings that arise by extending the ground field are linked and formulate a McKay correspondence relating nontrivial irreducible representations to exceptional prime divisors over arbitrary fields $K$ of characteristic $0$. With the aim to generalise the McKay correspondence...

Nesta dissertação estudamos alguns aspectos da correspondência fluido/gravitação aplicada ao espaço plano em coordenadas de Rindler ingoing. Nosso principal objetivo é estudar o efeito de transformações de Ehlers e simetrias das equações de Einstein no contexto da correspondência fluido/gravitação. Para isso, fazemos uma revisão dos aspectos principais da Relatividade Geral e da Hidrodinâmica, os quais serão empregados ao longo do texto. Damos bastante atenção ao desenvolvimento de um método que permite encontrar soluções da equações de Einstein por meio de uma expansão em derivadas, o qual sera utilizado posteriormente para gerar uma solução-base sobre a qual aplicaremos transformações de Ehlers. Nós mostramos que a métrica de um espaçotempo plano em coordenadas de Rindler ingoing está relacionada a um espaçotempo de Taub por meio de uma transformação de Ehlers e nós utilizamos um método em que nós resolvemos a equação de Killing perturbativamente na expansão no parâmetro $\epsilon$. Os resultados obtidos com este método não são inteiramente conclusivos, de modo que faz-se necessária uma futura investigação.; In this dissertation we study some aspects of the fluid/gravity correspondence applied to flat space in ingoing Rindler coordinates. Our main goal is to study the effect of Ehlers transformations and symmetries of the Einstein equations in the context of fluid/gravity correspondence. To do so...

The present study investigated the influence of emotional valence on the spatial stimulus-key location correspondence effect in three experiments using the Affective Spatial Correspondence task (AffSCt). We initially reanalyzed the results of Conde et al. (2011) according to the model proposed by Proctor (2013). In that study, compatible and incompatible responses were chosen according to the participants' team preference. In one block, the volunteers had to press a key on the same side for the Favorite team and on the opposite side for the Rival team. In another block, a reverse code was used. We found that responses were faster for the Favorite-compatible/Rival-incompatible condition (614 ms) compared with the Favorite-incompatible/Rival-compatible condition (691 ms). The same experimental arrangement was replicated in another Brazilian city, and similar results were found. Additionally, we employed non-affective "fake" soccer teams as a control condition, and no mapping-rule effect was observed. Finally, a final experiment that used the same design but different non-affective stimuli (yellow and blue bars) was performed to provide further evidence that the valence effect in the present experimental paradigm only occurs with affective stimuli. As expected...

Canonical non-symmetrical correspondence analysis is developed as an alternative method for constrained ordination, relating external information (e.g., environmental variables) with ecological data, considering species abundance as dependant on sites. Ordination axes are restricted to be linear combinations of the environmental variables, based on the information of the most abundant species. This extension and its associated unconstrained ordination method are terms of a global model that permits an empirical evaluation of the impact that the environmental variables have on the community composition. Scores, contributions, qualities of representation, interpretation of dispersion graphs and an application to real vegetation data are presented.

This report gives a comprehensive explanation of the multivariate technique called correspondence analysis, applied in the context of a large survey of a nation's state of health, in this case the Spanish National Health Survey. It is first shown how correspondence analysis can be used to interpret a simple cross-tabulation by visualizing the table in the form of a map of points representing the rows and columns of the table. Combinations of variables can also be interpreted by coding the data in the appropriate way. The technique can also be used to deduce optimal scale values for the levels of a categorical variable, thus giving quantitative meaning to the categories. Multiple correspondence analysis can analyze several categorical variables simultaneously, and is analogous to factor analysis of continuous variables. Other uses of correspondence analysis are illustrated using different variables of the same Spanish database: for example, exploring patterns of missing data and visualizing trends across surveys from consecutive years.
