Описание: В 1966 году в Национальной библиотеке в Мадриде были обнаружены два манускрипта, написанные Леонардо. Когда-то они не были учтены при каталогизации, и об их существовании не было известно. Этим двум манускриптам дали условные названия «Мадридский кодекс I» и «Мадридский кодекс II».
«Мадридский кодекс I» состоит из 192 листов 1490—1499 годов написания, содержащих изображения различных механизмов и изложения теории механики. Хотя работа и посвящена механике, в ней есть заметки по астрономии и по оптике.
«Мадридский кодекс II» был создан Леонардо в 1503—1505 гг. и состоит из 158 листов. Он собрал исследования в области геометрии, такие, например, как «квадратуры круга». Кроме этого, в нём содержатся работы по перспективе и оптике. В книге можно найти эскизы морских и топографических карт, рассматриваются проблемы военной техники и архитектуры. Самое интересное в этом кодексе — неосуществлённый проект изменения русла реки Арно, эскизы фрески «Битва при Ангиари» и конного памятника Франческо Сфорца.

Example text

The remaining responders tend toward specialists or semispecialists. This distribution of expertise may be indicative of the community of response: Events of this scale are rare (the last local event of this scale, a flood, had been sixteen years earlier), so responders have little occasion to gain expertise locally. However, a significant number of responders have sufficient personal resources to be able to deploy regularly to nonlocal events. 5 Frequency of Performing Unfamiliar Tasks 12 10 8 9 6 6 5 4 2 2 0 2 2 4 Never Few Times 0 Never Often or Constantly 1-3 Times 4 or more times Note: Bars show number of responders reporting performing unfamiliar tasks or making unfamiliar decisions, and indicate responders’ prior experience in the specific role they were performing.

Police officers and paramedics), and may be presumed to have both training and experience with frequently occurring response tasks. Expanding organizations typically have a small core of “habitual” responders (with both training and experience in response). This core is supported by a larger group with training but limited experience, and augmented (when fully mobilized) by a large number of individuals with neither training nor experience. Members of extending and emergent organizations generally have little or no training or experience with disaster response, with two notable exceptions.

The conceptual framework developed offers the beginnings of a theoretical foundation for a design-oriented discipline of response technology. Keywords: Response Technology, User Interface, Design Space, Design Theory, Disaster Management, Disaster Response, User, Task, Context Analysis, Requirements Analysis In order to solve a problem, a problem solver must develop what cognitive scientists call the problem space—a mental representation of the problem (Newell and Simon, 1972; Simon, 1999). If the problem is to be solved successfully, the problem space must contain those problem features that are relevant to solutions and omit those that are irrelevant (Simon, 1999).
