Abstract: This is a qualitative study of how hand gestures take their particular forms. Participants performed actions such as playing with a whirlygig toy, then described this to someone who had not done it. In doing so, the speaker often made a series of gestures that were not only different from the original action but from each other. The specific gestural (symbolic) form of the gesture can be explained by its immediate communicative function, in this case, by what was given and what was new information in it at that moment. Parts of the action that had just been depicted but were still needed (i.e., given) became smaller, or “sloppier”, while the new feature being depicted was larger, clearer, or otherwise emphasized. Some earlier actions disappeared but had to be presupposed in order to understand the new information. These differences are analogous to the differences in given vs. new verbal information.

Abstract: Let P be a set of n points in the plane. Draw all segments joining pairs of points in P. We are interested in the number of segment-intersections, or crossings, in such a drawing. For a fixed n, the problem of minimizing the number of crossings over all sets of n points in the plane is a famous unsolved problem in Combinatorial Geometry. We classify all sets of n points according to the sizes of their convex layers and consider the minimum number of crossings over sets within the same class. We present our best constructions providing general upper bounds for sets with two layers, and exact values for small n.

Abstract: This study used Kingdon’s Streams Model to explain why some policy proposals are seriously considered while other solutions are neglected. Interviews with 119 reading policy actors suggest that solutions that recombine familiar elements of previously generated alternatives, indicate support from empirical research, enjoy the support of a high ranking official, redress inequity, or confer benefits to other groups beyond the target were likely to make it to the short list.

Abstract: Improvisation is a free elective course offered by the Music Department to students from all disciplines at the main University. Earlier studies on enabling nonmusic-specialist learners through Improvisation reveal informal and formal learning through reflexive and reflective thinking processes (Dairianathan & Stead 2006, 2008), which we argue are funded on the concept of askesis, notably melete and gymnasia, in the Stoic tradition. But both thinking processes do not fully explain appropriateness of response in the moment (kairos) as a function of past experiences and opportunities to reflect on and re-enact prior moments (khronos). In this paper, we rely on students’ performances as well as excerpts from participants’ journal reflections and essays to critically examine the relationship between kairos and khronos for a non music-specialist learner and what it means for learners to be given time to improvise.

Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: In this paper we suggest an original approach to conducting individual pair comparisons during group decision-making (including AHP/ANP-based decisions). Under this approach every expert is given an opportunity to use the scale, in which degree of detail (number of points) most adequately reflects this expert’s competence in the issue under consideration. Before aggregation all separate expert estimates (judgments) are brought to a unified scale, and scales, in which these judgments were built, are assigned respective weights. A respective instrument for pair comparison conduction has been developed, and an experiment has been organized. The experiment statistically proves that as a result of suggested technology usage, there is an increase in degree of correspondence between estimates, input by an expert, and his (her) own notions on examination objects.
