    Bowen Measure From Heteroclinic Points

    Full text link
    We present a new construction of the entropy-maximizing, invariant probability measure on a Smale space (the Bowen measure). Our construction is based on points that are unstably equivalent to one given point, and stably equivalent to another: heteroclinic points. The spirit of the construction is similar to Bowen's construction from periodic points, though the techniques are very different. We also prove results about the growth rate of certain sets of heteroclinic points, and about the stable and unstable components of the Bowen measure. The approach we take is to prove results through direct computation for the case of a Shift of Finite type, and then use resolving factor maps to extend the results to more general Smale spaces

    The Charles and Helen Schwab Foundation's After-School Programs Initiative is designed to increase the access of low-income children to high-quality after-school programs in California and to support the successful statewide implementation of Proposition 49, the After-School Education and Safety Program (ASESP) approved by voters in November 2002.This report is designed to assist other foundations that might be interested in supporting after-school programming in California. The report describes the need for after-school programs (especially those serving low-income communities), the impact of after-school programs on children, California's unique opportunity to provide after-school programs to every elementary and middle school student, and a variety of funding strategies that foundations can use to support the successful implementation of the ASESP. While our focus is on California, the movement to increase after-school programs using proven youth development strategies is nationwide, and national organizations are provided in the Resources section of this document

    The Collision of tao, rhetorike, & Orientalism

    Get PDF
    This essay will not focus on my analyses of the poems that were the original impetus of my study, but instead on what I discovered when researching the rhetorical traditions within which the poems are situated. My argument hinges on this question: Why did no gross disparities between rhetorical traditions emerge in my initial research, and why is this absence significant? My analysis draws on the works of George A. Kennedy, Robert Oliver, and Edward Said, in addition to the post-colonial studies of Bill Ashcroft, Gareth Griffiths, and Helen Tiffin
