The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Body Digital Cameras combines a 16-megapixel high-speed MOS sensor offering improved performance and clarity in all aspects of image capture. Olympus´ TruePic VII image-processing engine improves image quality in low-light environments. The camera´s sensor allows for a maximum ISO of 25,600, and the dynamic range has been expanded for more faithful color reproduction. The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II thus improves upon its predecessor by utilizing a 5-axis VCM (Voice Coil Motor) Image Stabilization that provides up to 5 stops of compensation. The Olympus OM-E E-M5 Mark II delivers sharp, clear still images in low light or steady HD video when capturing movies. Full HD 1080p video recording is now available on the Mark II with a higher bitrate of up to 77 Mb / s and various codecs. Built into the E-M5 Mark II is a unique feature that utilizes a 40MP image shift sensor. The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II´s electronic viewfinder has an eye-tracking sensor to seamlessly switch the display between the tilting 3.0 ´´touch screen OLED and the electronic viewfinder for ease-of-use EVF´s ability to display the effects of various exposure adjustments and filter effects - all without a doubt. Interactive, high-resolution and high-magnification electronic viewfinder. 3 ´´touch-screen LCD monitor, with variable angle positioning The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II built-in Wi-Fi for instant connectivity, which automatically blends multiple exposures for incredibly detailed night scenes and compatibility Olympus Capture camera control software, which creates a seamless interface between camera and computer for studio work.
In 1898, a woman forsakes the comfort of home and family for a love that takes her to a remote lighthouse on the wild coast of California. What she finds at the edge of the earth, hidden between the sea and the fog, will change her life irrevocably. Trudy, who can argue Kant over dinner and play a respectable portion of Mozart´s Serenade in G major, has been raised to marry her childhood friend and assume a life of bourgeois comfort in Milwaukee. She knows she should be pleased, but she´s restless instead, yearning for something she lacks even the vocabulary to articulate. When she falls in love with enigmatic and ambitious Oskar, she believes she´s found her escape from the banality of her preordained life. But escape turns out to be more fraught than Trudy had imagined. Alienated from family and friends, the couple moves across the country to take a job at a lighthouse at Point Lucia, California - an unnervingly isolated outcropping, trapped between the ocean and hundreds of miles of inaccessible wilderness. There they meet the light station´s only inhabitants - the formidable and guarded Crawleys. In this unfamiliar place, Trudy will find that nothing is as she might have predicted, especially after she discovers what hides among the rocks. Gorgeously detailed, swiftly paced, and anchored in the dramatic geography of the remote and eternally mesmerizing Big Sur, The Edge of the Earth is a magical story of secrets and self-transformation, ruses and rebirths. Christina Schwarz, celebrated for her rich evocation of place and vivid, unpredictable characters, has spun another haunting and unforgettable tale. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Candace Thaxton.

Spectral methods, particularly in their multidomain version, have become firmly established as a mainstream tool for scientific and engineering computation. While retaining the tight integration between the theoretical and practical aspects of spectral methods that was the hallmark of their 1988 book, Canuto et al. now incorporate the many improvements in the algorithms and the theory of spectral methods that have been made since then. This second new treatment, Evolution to Complex Geometries and Applications to Fluid Dynamics, provides an extensive overview of the essential algorithmic and theoretical aspects of spectral methods for complex geometries, in addition to detailed discussions of spectral algorithms for fluid dynamics in simple and complex geometries. Modern strategies for constructing spectral approximations in complex domains, such as spectral elements, mortar elements, and discontinuous Galerkin methods, as well as patching collocation, are introduced, analyzed, and demonstrated by means of numerous numerical examples. Representative simulations from continuum mechanics are also shown. Efficient domain decomposition preconditioners (of both Schwarz and Schur type) that are amenable to parallel implementation are surveyed. The discussion of spectral algorithms for fluid dynamics in single domains focuses on proven algorithms for the boundary-layer equations, linear and nonlinear stability analyses, incompressible Navier-Stokes problems, and both inviscid and viscous compressible flows. An overview of the modern approach to computing incompressible flows in general geometries using high-order, spectral discretizations is also provided. The recent companion book Fundamentals in Single Domains discusses the fundamentals of the approximation of solutions to ordinary and partial differential equations on single domains by expansions in smooth, global basis functions. The essential concepts and formulas from this book are included in the current text for the reader s convenience.
