In particular, the medium-scale irrigation scheme utilized less than 40% of total storage, whereas the small-scale scheme utilized about 70% of the storage.
The examination of field-level water management practices suggests that an application efficiency of 58–68% is achievable in both schemes by improving the irrigation scheduling of the major crops.
– Es ist ein richtiges Urteil der Gelehrten, daß die Menschen aller Zeiten zu wissen glaubten, was gut und böse, lobens- und tadelnswert sei.
Aber es ist ein Vorurteil der Gelehrten, daß wir es jetzt besser wüßten als irgendeine Zeit.” It has been hardly noticed that these two points contradict each other: from observation, we only know a finite number of linguistic objects; if our grammars describe infinitely many linguistic objects, they are prescriptive on those objects we do not observe.
Dissertations and theses submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for master's or doctoral degrees at the University of Michigan. dissertations at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor are awarded by the Rackham School of Graduate Studies.
This collection also includes theses written by U-M faculty.
During the Disputation, the candidate is examined on the research presented in the dissertation as well as on other topics important to the candidate’s general field of research.
Prerequisite for being accepted as a doctoral student is the completion of one of the following university degrees, with above-average results: , or an equivalent university degree from a German or foreign university in Chinese Studies or a comparable field of studies.
This means among other that statements such as “natural languages are not context-free” or “natural languages are mildly context-sensitive” are meaningless in the sense that they cannot be falsified empirically – they can only be falsified if we a finite language into the infinite in a certain way.
This however turns out to be a highly non-trivial issue!
