Amore and Amaretti: A Tale of Love and Food in Italy by Victoria Cosford

By Victoria Cosford

"L'appetito vien mangiando!" or "Appetite comes if you are eating." Vicky arrives in Tuscany to check the language and tradition of Italy, yet quickly falls in love with charismatic chef Gianfranco and starts off to benefit the artwork of Italian cooking in his trattoria. On Sunday nights, after benches are stacked on tables, they discover the nation-state by means of vehicle, passing glassy lakes and old hill cities. This colourful and intoxicating gastro-memoir takes you backstage of romantic eating places and bars in Tuscany, Umbria, Elba, and Perugia. Interspersed with recipes, humor, and heartbreak, it is going to depart you entranced and with a hankering for tagliatelle and cakes.

In many situations, however, the Lagrange multiplier or, equivalently, a "dual" variable (sand flux upon the pile surface, electric field, and strain tensor, respectively) also has to be found. We present, for both the sandpile and the superconductivity problem, the variational formulations written for the dual variables. On discretization these dual formulations yield an efficient algorithm to compute the dual and primal variables simultaneously. Only the simplest version of each problem is considered.

E) > 0 (3) for any 7p_e W, where W = {ij_ e [M{fl)]^ : curl^^ e L^{^)}, 4>{u) = /nic|w|, and J^{u) = {he{t) — /ie(0) — ho, curlu). The primary variable, h, is found as h = ho + he{0) - he{t) - curl{/o edt}. The simple transformation i? : e = (ei, 62) ^ (ea, —ej) maps W io V and enables us to use the same Raviart-Thomas finite element as in the previous case. To model the magnetization of a superconductor with a multiply connected cross-section (Fig. 2) we "filled" the hole and set jc = 0 there.

Consequently, the array elements should have interelement spacing of | or less in order to remove the grating lobes in the visible region. The shape optimization method will create a non-periodical geometry in order to reduce the grating lobes. Indeed the presence of grating lobes has an adverse effect on the peak of the main lobe. When a grating lobe appears, energy is taken away from the main lobe and placed into the grating lobe resulting in a loss of Directive Gain. 3. Shape Optimization Method The design problem consists in optimizing geometrical arrangement {Q and relative weights (w) of the array elements so as to focus towards an angular pattern centered at the particular direction Up G S"^ noted V\{up).
