This study provides a history of the concept of form in the twentieth century CE, focusing on the rise and character of relational theory. To some extent drawing on older traditions, relational theory accepts some aspects of modern particularism but moves beyond it by holding that relations simultaneously separate and connect. Particularity and generality are seen as aspects of relationality, and forms are viewed as complexes of relations. Prominent features of a relational view include: an avoidance of rigid structures through an orientation toward probability; multiperspectivity; possibility, not just particular actuality; continuity between the human and the nonhuman; and a valuational rather than a neutral view of reality. Socially, relational theory has supported a combination of freedoms. It joins internal freedom, which values both body and mind, with both negative and positive external freedom, including "freedom from" external controls and "freedom for" the fulfillment of possibilities in cooperation with others. Politically, this ideal favors economic solidarity, respectful recognition of different "racial" or ethnic groups, women's liberation, increased sexual freedom, and ecological consciousness. Relational theory was not the only notable view of form in the twentieth century, however. More-or-less individualistic particularism was radicalized in nihilist and skeptical philosophies, and powerful versions of group particularism arose in fascism, Stalinism, and continuing imperialism. Caucasian male thinkers varied considerably in the degree to which they supported relational conceptions of form, but, not surprisingly in view of the connection between a relational view of form and interactive freedom, most women and non-Caucasian males advocated relational views. Some of the tension described can be viewed positively from the relational side, however, for according to information theory uncertainty provides an opportunity for communication.

Hardbound. This volume of the Handbook of Statistics presents a state-of-the art exposition of current topics in signal/image processing. It provides an excellent balance between both theory and applications. The collection of chapters deals with topics such as fast computations and transforms in signal processing, sampling theorems, parameter estimation and signal modeling, image and multidimensional signal processing, array processing, direction-of-arrival estimation, beamforming, adaptive algorithms, multiscale signal processing and wavelet transforms. Other subjects include VLSI implementations in hardware, image gathering and video coding, spectrum estimation, neural net sensor fusion, hidden Markov models with applications in speech recognition, design of special types of digital filter structures (and innovative methods for performance evaluation of such structures), as well as more general systems which are encountered in signal processin

The book provides an analysis of a key notion in our lives, causation: what its nature is; how we should characterise it in language, how it relates to laws of nature, how causes differ from their effects and why they tend to occur earlier than their effects.
