Star Wormwood

Philip Q. Roche
1959 Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease  
The story of Star Wormwood is fictional; the comments are a protest against a crimi- nal and penal system founded on vengeance.  ...  The story does not quite de- velop a dynamic set for either the killing or the eating of a part of the victim. She was not previously linked to Roger’s life.  ...

Web-STAR: A Visual Web-Based IDE for a Story Comprehension System [article]

Christos Rodosthenous, Loizos Michael
2018 arXiv   pre-print
We present Web-STAR, an online platform for story understanding built on top of the STAR reasoning engine for STory comprehension through ARgumentation.  ...  The platform also delivers a number of "social" features, including a community repository for public story sharing with a built-in commenting system, and tools for collaborative story editing that can  ...  help in the preparation of the evaluation methodology; and the anonymous reviewers, for their valuable comments and suggestions.  ...

How to marry a star: probabilistic constraints for meaning in context [article]

Katrin Erk, Aurelie Herbelot
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We characterize the lexical comprehension process as a combination of cognitive semantics and Discourse Representation Theory, formalized as a 'situation description system': a probabilistic model which  ...  In this paper, we derive a notion of 'word meaning in context' which accounts for the wide range of lexical shifts and ambiguities observed in utterance interpretation.  ...  So for example the meaning of star is characterized by a random variable for the concept underlying star.  ...

Ultracompact vector stars [article]

Gianmassimo Tasinato
2022 arXiv   pre-print
We introduce and determine the vector magnetic susceptibility as a probe of the star properties, and we analyze how the rate of rotation of the star is affected by the vector charges.  ...  We analytically investigate a new family of horizonless compact objects in vector-tensor theories of gravity, called ultracompact vector stars.  ...  Acknowledgements It is a pleasure to thank Mustafa Amin and Ivonne Zavala for discussions. The work is funded by the STFC grant ST/T000813/1.  ...

Massive star clusters in galaxies

W. E. Harris
2010 Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences  
The ensemble of all star clusters in a galaxy constitutes its star cluster system.  ...  In this review, the focus of the discussion is on the ability of star clusters, particularly the systems of old massive globular clusters (GCSs), to mark the early evolutionary history of galaxies.  ...  Pieces of these steps are understood, sometimes in much detail, but a comprehensive end-to-end story still awaits assembly.  ...

Mass Exchange in Binary Stars

Miroslav Plavec
1970 Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific  
The comprehensive grids of models computed so far represent only the beginning of a phase that may be long and during which the parameters of the system may change perceptibly.  ...  For a system in which the mass ratio is q = 2ft 2 /2ft 1? the more massive star has mass 2ft l5 and its instantaneous radius is R 1?  ...

Dichotomy of Baryons as Quantum Hall Droplets and Skyrmions In Compact-Star Matter [article]

Yong-Liang Ma, Mannque Rho
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We review the recent exploration of a possible "domain-wall structure" of compressed baryonic matter in massive compact stars in terms of fractional quantum Hall droplets and skyrmions for baryons in medium  ...  and quarks of QCD.  ...  Acknowledgments The work of YLM was supported in part by the National Science Foundation of China (NSFC) under Grant No. 11875147 and 11475071.  ...

14. From Transmedia Storytelling to Transmedia Experience Star Wars Celebration as a Crossover/Hierarchical Space [chapter]

Matt Hills, Dan Hassler-Forest, Sean Guynes
2018 Star Wars and the History of Transmedia Storytelling  
The book series Transmedia: Participatory Culture and Media Convergence provides a platform for cutting-edge research in the field of media studies, with a strong focus on the impact of digitization, globalization  ...  Interdisciplinary by its very definition, the series will provide a publishing platform for international scholars doing new and critical research in relevant fields.  ...  This arrangement created a strong incentive for those pieces-the comics, the toys, the novelizations, and so forth-to be more fully incorporated into the story system of Star Wars.  ...

STaR: Bootstrapping Reasoning With Reasoning [article]

Eric Zelikman, Yuhuai Wu, Jesse Mu, Noah D. Goodman
2022 arXiv   pre-print
We show that STaR significantly improves performance on multiple datasets compared to a model fine-tuned to directly predict final answers, and performs comparably to fine-tuning a 30× larger state-of-the-art  ...  We propose a technique to iteratively leverage a small number of rationale examples and a large dataset without rationales, to bootstrap the ability to perform successively more complex reasoning.  ...  We evaluate these techniques with a variety of ablations in both mathematical and commonsense reasoning domains. 4.  ...

Stars at the Gate

David J. Berri, Martin B. Schmidt, Stacey L. Brook
2004 Journal of Sports Economics  
Specifically, the significance of star power is only uncovered in a multiplicative model rather than in the commonly employed linear form. Additional empirical results are reported in the text.  ...  Given the role competitive balance plays in maintaining consumer demand, the authors examine the role the star attractions of the NBA play in promoting fan interest.  ...  An objective of the present work is to extend the work of Hausman and Leonard (1997) in a more comprehensive study of the relationship between team attendance and both team performance and the team's  ...

Massive Stars in the Local Group: Implications for Stellar Evolution and Star Formation

Philip Massey
2003 Annual Review of Astronomy and Astrophysics  
s Abstract The galaxies of the Local Group serve as important laboratories for understanding the physics of massive stars.  ...  I show that the current generation of stellar evolutionary models do well at matching some of the observed features and provide a look at the sort of new observational data that will provide a benchmark  ...  Thus a simple story of star formation can now be told for R136, in which the intermediate-mass stars began forming some 6 Myr ago and continued up to the time that the high-mass stars formed 1-2 Myr ago  ...

Mark R. Krumholz, Christopher F. McKee, Joss Bland-Hawthorn
2019 Annual Review of Astronomy and Astrophysics  
Here, we review observations and theoretical models for the formation, evolution, and eventual disruption of star clusters.  ...  Star clusters stand at the intersection of much of modern astrophysics: the ISM, gravitational dynamics, stellar evolution, and cosmology.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We thank A. Adamo, N. Bastian, R. Chandar, E. van Dishoeck, B. Elmegreen, E. Falgarone, M. Fall, D. Kruijssen, E. Ostriker, and A. Sternberg  ...

2021 "The Star" for Beginners: Introductions to the Magnum Opus of Franz Rosenzweig  
The same experience awaits the reader of the Star. Part I created a demanding, coherent, and thoughtful environment. If carefully followed and confronted, it made its own sense.  ...  Firstly, it offered a harsh and principled critique of How to cite this book chapter:  ...  Scholars disagree concerning the extent to which the philosophic stand expressed in this article is indeed identical to that of the systemic book, but I find this expression fruitful for its comprehension  ...

Mark R. Krumholz
2014 Physics reports  
I conclude with a discussion of prospects for theoretical progress in the coming years.  ...  Star formation lies at the center of a web of processes that drive cosmic evolution: generation of radiant energy, synthesis of elements, formation of planets, and development of life.  ...  I also thank the Aspen Center for Physics, which is supported by NSF Grant PHY-1066293, for hospitality during the writing of this review.  ...
