The current volume contains selected papers submitted after Critical Link 5 (Sydney 2007) and arises from its topic - quality interpreting being a communal responsibility of all the participants. It takes the much discussed theme of professionalisation of community interpreting to a new level by stating that achieving quality depends not only on the technical skills and ethics of interpreters, but equally upon all other parties that serve multilingual populations: speakers, employers and administrators, educational institutions, researchers, and interpreters. Major articles outline both innovative practices in legal and medical settings and prevailing deficiencies in community interpreting in different countries. While Part I, A shared responsibility: The policy dimension, addresses the macro environment of specific social policy contexts with constrains that affect interpreting, Part II,Investigations and innovations in quality interpreting, reveals a number of admirable cases of interpreters working together with their client institutions in a variety of social settings. Part III is dedicated to the questions of Pedagogy, ethics and responsibility in interpreting. The collection is an important reference book catering to the interpreting community: interpreting practitioners and interpreter users, researchers, educators, and students.
This book develops the theory of the null-field method (also called T-matrix method), covering almost all aspects and current applications. This book-and-CD set also incorporates FORTRAN programs and simulation results. The FORTRAN source programs included on the CD exemplify the wide range of application of the T-matrix method. Worked examples of the application of the FORTRAN programs show readers how to adapt or modify the programs for their specific application.
Engineering Computations and Modeling in MATLAB(R)/Simulink(R) provides a broad overview of The MathWorks' MATLAB(R)/Simulink(R)/GUIDE development and modeling environment. This textbook shows how to use these software tools effectively in a variety of engineering applications, including modeling real-world dynamic systems. Concepts Discussed: Major concepts of MATLAB(R), Symbolic Math ToolboxA', Simulink(R), and GUIDE * Development of effective foolproof M-file scripts and functions * Use of the 2D and 3D plotting functions and handle graphics * Creation of interactive user interfaces and animations * Presentation of numerical methods, coded in MATLAB(R) functions * Accuracy of digital computations Special Features: * Numerous examples * Derivation of fundamental formulas using symbolic math computations * Dynamic systems modeling in MATLAB(R) and Simulink(R) * Development of user-friendly standalone GUIs * Introduction of aerospace engineering tools This book is used as a textbook by undergraduate and graduate students taking introductory and advanced courses in applied programming, and also as a reference for working professionals using MATLAB(R)/Simulink(R).
