The Rooftop Club is a book series about kids growing up in the city. This is not a happy ending series. The characters in this series help the reader to explore what it means to be a kid in the city, dealing with problems, and living from day to day. Please enjoy exploring this series through the eyes of the characters in the rooftop club. Meet the Rooftop club is the first adventure of this series. The Rooftop Club have to deal with the bullies of their school. What will happen to the members of the rooftop club? Readers can answer the questions at the end of the book to help them understand how to deal with the bullies at their school. A portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to the National Voices for Equality, Education, and Enlightenment (NVEEE). Visit their website: www.nveee.org A National Voices for Equality, Education, and Enlightenment (NVEEE) is a nonprofit organization providing programs and support services to youths and families affected by bullying violence, and suicide, through mentoring, preventative education and communication.
A unique synthesis of the three existing Fourier-analytic treatments of quadratic reciprocity.<br> <br> The relative quadratic case was first settled by Hecke in 1923, then recast by Weil in 1964 into the language of unitary group representations. The analytic proof of the general n-th order case is still an open problem today, going back to the end of Hecke's famous treatise of 1923. The Fourier-Analytic Proof of Quadratic Reciprocity provides number theorists interested in analytic methods applied to reciprocity laws with a unique opportunity to explore the works of Hecke, Weil, and Kubota.<br> <br> This work brings together for the first time in a single volume the three existing formulations of the Fourier-analytic proof of quadratic reciprocity. It shows how Weil's groundbreaking representation-theoretic treatment is in fact equivalent to Hecke's classical approach, then goes a step further, presenting Kubota's algebraic reformulation of the Hecke-Weil proof. Extensive commutative diagrams for comparing the Weil and Kubota architectures are also featured.<br> <br> The author clearly demonstrates the value of the analytic approach, incorporating some of the most powerful tools of modern number theory, including adeles, metaplectric groups, and representations. Finally, he points out that the critical common factor among the three proofs is Poisson summation, whose generalization may ultimately provide the resolution for Hecke's open problem.
The scholar Thomas Jefferson, author of the United States Declaration of Independence, found it "self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness"--but this remarkable book presents scientific evidence of such an endowment. In it, Michael T Takac argues that our unalienable Rights stem from the physical Laws of Nature through the Constructal Law. This law explains how everything that moves--whether animate or inanimate--naturally evolve in ways that facilitate such movement. Movement for all "Life" includes "Liberty" that facilitates "the pursuit," of positive feedback ("Happiness").
Written in an easy style, Takac takes the discourse out of the ivory tower for all to understand. He demonstrates these Rights represent a dynamic fine-tuning bio-program that led to the machinery of natural selection, the emergence of philosophy, the evolution of science, the maturity of morality, a closure of the gap between man-made laws and the Laws of Nature, and the basis to economics. By understanding our Rights as belonging to nature and building social institutions that embrace those Rights, humanity may travel toward a better way of life on the "road to utopia."
