[Letter from B. Ada Drury to Charles B. Moore, June 13, 1897]

[Letter from B. Ada Drury to Charles B. Moore, June 13, 1897]

Date: June 13, 1897
Creator: Drury, B. Ada
Description: This is a letter from the Charles B. Moore Collection. It is written by B. Ada Drury. In this letter, Drury discusses the theory of evolution, the idea of life after death, and compliments Charles on his ability to think for himself and be a champion of free thought. She asks to hear from him again and in the letter's close she give a brief update on the weather in Louisville, KY. She mentions that she hope the Moore Family will be able to read the letter and sends her love to Mary Ann, Linnet, John, and Charles. The envelope is included with the letter.

Model for Long-range Correlations in DNA Sequences

Model for Long-range Correlations in DNA Sequences

Date: December 1996
Creator: Allegrini, Paolo
Description: We address the problem of the DNA sequences developing a "dynamical" method based on the assumption that the statistical properties of DNA paths are determined by the joint action of two processes, one deterministic, with long-range correlations, and the other random and delta correlated. The generator of the deterministic evolution is a nonlinear map, belonging to a class of maps recently tailored to mimic the processes of weak chaos responsible for the birth of anomalous diffusion. It is assumed that the deterministic process corresponds to unknown biological rules which determine the DNA path, whereas the noise mimics the influence of an infinite-dimensional environment on the biological process under study. We prove that the resulting diffusion process, if the effect of the random process is neglected, is an a-stable Levy process with 1 < a < 2. We also show that, if the diffusion process is determined by the joint action of the deterministic and the random process, the correlation effects of the "deterministic dynamics" are cancelled on the short-range scale, but show up in the long-range one. We denote our prescription to generate statistical sequences as the Copying Mistake Map (CMM). We carry out our analysis of several DNA sequences, ...

Rhetorical Drawings

Date: May 2000
Creator: Birdsong, Daniel L.
Description: Document that details the conception, evolution and conclusions of a body of work consisting of seven prints executed in the printmaking technique of intaglio printing in the manner of the state print. The work is discussed by explaining the visual and conceptual associations that occur in an "Alice In Wonderland" manner, where the initial idea is paired with seemingly unrelated topics to establish a progressive visual language. This language is further supported by discussing a comparative of the state print with the idea of the sketchbook as a tool of thought generation and elaboration. The technical aspects of intaglio and the choice of techniques utilized are discussed to support this comparison. How the quality of the prints reflects the quality of the sketchbook and how these techniques combine with the conceptual reasoning, which result in the body of work. Findings for the work are based on three questions that deal with the progression of conceptual reasoning, predictability of recurring ideas and the intentions of the technical choices made.
