On the power of magic

Catriel Beeri, Raghu Ramakrishnan
1991 The Journal of Logic Programming  
These algorithms generalize the counting and magic-sets algorithms to work with arbitrary programs.  ...  This paper considers the efficient evaluation of recursive queries expressed using Horn clauses.  ...  ON THE POWER OF MAGIC In this section, we present some results characterizing the generalized magic-sets rule-rewriting algorithm with respect to other strategies for implementing a sip.  ...

On the Power of Reusable Magic States [article]

Jonas T. Anderson
2012 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper we study reusable magic states. These states are a special subset of the standard magic states. Once distilled, reusable magic states can be used, repeatedly, to apply some unitary U.  ...  Given this property, reusable magic states have the potential to greatly lower qubit and gate overheads in fault-tolerant quantum computation.  ...  A reusable magic state for the S gate ( √ Z gate) was shown in [14, 15] III. NON-CLIFFORD REUSABLE MAGIC STATES Most research on magic states focuses exclusively on non-Clifford magic states.  ...

The Development of Socialist Magic: Reflections on the Place of Power and Ideology in Magic Performance

Ian Saville
2013 Journal of Performance Magic  
Moreover, the modern magician is associated with rationalism and scepticism, which sometimes puts the conjurer on the side of a progressive view of society.  ...  However, the magician's role is complex, as he (or less commonly she) practises an art which is part of 'low' culture, despite its association with the rich and powerful.  ...  The relationship of magic to race and ethnicity is, perhaps, more complex than the simple show of power described above.  ...

MAGIC observations on Pulsar Wind Nebulae around high spin-down power Fermi-LAT pulsars [article]

A. Fernández-Barral, E. de Oña Wilhelmi Institut de Fisica d'Altes Energies, The Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology, Bellaterra Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics, HBNI, Kolkata, India, Institute for Space Sciences Universidad Complutense, E-28040 Madrid, Spain)
2017 arXiv   pre-print
Those energetic pulsars can be traced using observations with the Fermi-LAT detector. The MAGIC Collaboration has carried out deep observations of PWNe around high spin-down power Fermi pulsars.  ...  These sources, some of which emit very-high-energy (VHE) gamma-rays, are believed to be related to the young and energetic pulsars that power highly magnetized nebulae (a few μG to a few hundred μG).  ...  In this work, we aim to prove particle acceleration at the outer side of the Galaxy, for which we selected promising PWN candidates based on the high spin-down power (between ∼ 10 35 -10 37 erg s −1 )  ...

The Mythical Context of Magic as an influential power on the plot development in Thomas Malory's Le Morte Darthur

Baker Mohammad Jamil Bani-Khair
2017 Advances in Language and Literary Studies  
This paper studies the mythical context of magic in Thomas Malory's Le Morte Darthur through a critical lens that focuses the light on plot development and the use of suspense throughout the novel.  ...  The study places the emphasis on a major character named "Merlyn" who seems to have a great influence on the plot and actions of the novel through his devilish and mythical prophecies about characters  ...  However, we should also bear in mind the centrality and the significance of magic on the plot itself and how it goes on as magic sophisticates the plot or probably makes us think of its complexity from  ...

Magic and Christianity: An Exegesis on Magical Passages in the Acts of the Apostles

Chandra Han
2021 Dunamis: Jurnal Teologi dan Pendidikan Kristiani  
between God's power and magic is inevitable for it is between God and evil.  ...  Magic is a significant theme in The Acts of the Apostle but is undermined by scholars. The significance of this theme is obvious in the so-called five episodes or passage of magic.  ...  Thus the authority lies in the power of God on those who are Jesus' disciples and should not be understood and used as magic. The power of casting out evil is not a magic, it is the power of God.  ...

Magic: A Problem in Semantics

Dorothy Hammond
1970 American Anthropologist  
“In magic man depends on his own strength ...” (Frazer 1900:711). “Magic is the one and only specific power, a force unique of its kind, residing exclusively in man. . .” (Malinowski 1948:56).  ...  It has, however, been assumed that the existence of impersonal power is one of the fundamental postulates of many reli- gions.  ...

Powers of doubly-affine integer square matrices with one non-zero eigenvalue [article]

Peter Loly, Ian Cameron, Adam Rogers
2017 arXiv   pre-print
When doubly-affine matrices such as Latin and magic squares with a single non-zero eigenvalue are powered up they become constant matrices after a few steps.  ...  The process of compounding squares of orders m and n can then be used to generate an infinite series of such squares of orders mn.  ...  Acknowledgements Miguel Amela drew our attention in September 2016, to the role of 1EV for the even powers of our 8 order 4 associative magic squares by using the transpose of f 360.  ...
