Advanced Power MOSFET Concepts by B. Jayant Baliga

By B. Jayant Baliga

During the decade many new innovations were proposed for bettering the functionality of strength MOSFETs. the result of this study are dispersed within the technical literature between magazine articles and abstracts of meetings. for this reason, the knowledge isn't available to researchers and practising engineers within the strength gadget neighborhood. there is not any cohesive therapy of the information to supply an overview of the relative advantages of the ideas.

"Advanced strength MOSFET innovations" offers an in-depth remedy of the physics of operation of complicated energy MOSFETs. Analytical types for explaining the operation of the entire complicated strength MOSFETs may be built. the result of numerical simulations can be supplied to provide extra perception into the machine physics and validate the analytical versions. the result of two-dimensional simulations might be supplied to corroborate the analytical types and provides larger perception into the gadget operation.

Lachen über [M]Auschwitz?: Formen und Funktionen des by Janin Taubert

By Janin Taubert

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Neuere Deutsche Literatur, be aware: 1,0, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (Institut für deutsche Literatur), Veranstaltung: Hauptseminar Geschichte(n) erzählen: Nach-Bilder des Holocaust, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Die Frage nach dem Komischen in dem Comix Maus. Die Geschichte eines Überlebenden des New Yorker Comixautors paintings Spiegelman zu stellen, scheint zunächst paradox, da in der Forschung neben der Legitimität des Comix als adäquate Darstellung der Shoah immer wieder auch auf seine Seriösität insistiert wird. Die kurz nach Erscheinen des ersten Bandes von Maus ausgelöste Kritik, die sich besonders in Deutschland auf die Wahl des scheinbar komischen Mediums ‚Comic’ konzentrierte, hat sich in allgemeine Anerkennung gewandelt. Maus gilt heute in der Forschung als Inbegriff für einen Comix, der eine im Zeichen der Postmemory stehende Darstellungsform der Shoah und ihrer Folgen für die Überlebenden und Nachgeborenen gefunden hat. Dem soll in dieser Arbeit, die sich primär als Problemaufriss und als Versuch einer Antwort auf die Frage nach dem Komischen in Maus versteht, nicht widersprochen werden. Allerdings zeigt sich, dass die Bewertung von Maus als legitime Darstellung der Shoah meist mit der Prämisse verbunden wird, dass der Comix nichts Komisches enthalte und kein Lachen auslöse. LaCapra resümiert entsprechend, dass Maus kaum Komisches beinhalte. Zwar handelt es sich bei diesem Comix dem style nach tatsächlich nicht um eine Komödie oder eine genuin komische Bilderzählung. Aber dennoch wird im Vergleich mit anderen, die Shoah thematisierenden Comics, vor allem im Vergleich zu Crocis Auschwitz (2000), deutlich, dass diese nicht nur ohne anthropomorphe Tiere auskommen, sondern jede shape des Komischen vermeiden, während Maus sich durch eine subtile, reflexive Komik auszeichnet, so dass das Komische ein point des spezifischen Darstellungsmodus bildet, sich aber zum Teil auch auf inhaltlicher Ebene in shape von komischen Anekdoten zeigt. Diese Momente des Komischen rufen kein schallendes Gelächter hervor, aber wohl ein leises Lächeln und führen damit zu einer unauflösbaren, widersprüchlichen Spannung zwischen der zum Lachen reizenden Darstellung und der moralisch-ethischen Frage ‚Darf ich das?'. purpose der vorliegenden Seminararbeit ist es, eben jene Formen des Komischen im Comix Maus aufzuspüren, sie im Hinblick auf ihre Funkion zu analysieren und entgegen der Forschungstendenz zu zeigen, dass der Comix sehr wohl Komisches enthält, wodurch aber die Legitimität des Comix als Nach-Bild der Shoah keinesfalls in Frage gestellt werden soll. Zu untersuchen sind vielmehr die Chancen und Grenzen des Komischen in Bezug auf die Darstellung der Shoah.
