Extracted from a corpus of over forty thousand Chinese words, these most frequently used words cover 90% of almost one million word samples selected from various sources like popular newspapers, novels and various reading materials. The data presented in this book are of the most fundamental importance in the design and construction of word processors and computers for processing Chinese text and data, investigation of lexicographical and phonological matters.

The Life Story of an Infrared Telescope

Author: John K. Davies
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9783319235790
Release Date: 2016-02-11
Genre: Science

Written by one of the astronomers who 'lived the dream' of working there this book is a restrospectively expanded diary featuring the 'birth and long life' of what was a truely innovative telescope. Based on input received from people involved in its planning, building, operation, and many scientists who observed with it, the author tells this success story of The United Kingdom Infrared Telescope (UKIRT). Conceived in the mid 1970's as a cheap and cheerful light-bucket for the newly emerging field of infrared astronomy it has re-invented itself once a decade to remain at the forefront of infrared astronomy for more than 30 years. Even in 2012 / 2013, when ironically it faced almost certain closure, it remained one of the most scientifically productive telescopes in the world. Everybody, including amateur and professional astronomers, interested in real astronomy projects will enjoy reading that story and meet (again) the persons who lived it.
