The oldest and so much routinely Celtic kind of layout, spiral styles illustrate vividly the continuity among pagan and Christian Celtic artwork. Spirals are a relentless presence, from the paintings of overdue Stone Age important Europe, via megalithic temple sculptures, the l. a. Tene bronzes of the Gauls and Britons, and Pictish jewels, to the original method of layout constructed in Celtic arts golden age within the early heart a while. Aidan Meehan offers distinctive functional suggestion on tips on how to adapt that dwelling culture to the calls for of mnrlern craft and layout.

An image can be considered as a grey-scale histogram H of N levels or bins where hi is the number of pixels that fall into the interval represented by bin i (this vector h is the feature vector). 17) can be used to compare two images described as histograms. L1 , L2 and less often L∞ norms are used. 19) where H and K are two histograms, h and k are the corresponding vectors of bin i values and mi = hi +k 2 . While these measures have sound theoretical support in information theory and in statistics they have some significant drawbacks.

However, since it is not known which state of nature will occur before an action is taken, these utilities are not known. 18) j=1 for i = 1, . . , m. We choose the action ai for which the expected utility is a maximum. This is called the principle of maximizing expected utility and is the decision criterion for choosing a decision under uncertainty. The principle generalizes in the usual way when there is a continuum of possible actions and states of nature; the pi j s are replaced by densities and one forms expected utilities by integration.
