In Andy McDermott's awesome new novel, Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase are at the hunt for the misplaced pyramid of Osiris. .. The great mystery of the nice Sphinx of Egypt is ready to be printed.

It's the spring of 1945, and the Nazis are disposing of the entire witnesses to their terrible crimes, together with Jews and foreigners closing within the felony camps.

Bob Lee Swagger is again in a mystery fifty years within the making. ..
It's no longer even a clue. It's a whisper, a hint, a ghost echo, drifting down in the course of the many years through probability connections so fragile that they'd collapse within the puff of a breath. yet it's sufficient to get mythical former Marine sniper Bob Lee Swagger drawn to the occasions of November 22, 1963, and the 3rd bullet that so decisively ended the lifetime of John F. Kennedy and set the degree for some of the most enduring controversies of our time.
Swagger starts off his sluggish evening stalk via a much-traveled panorama. yet he's asking questions that few have requested prior to: Why did the 3rd bullet explode? Why did Lee Harvey Oswald, approximately to turn into the main hunted guy on the earth, hazard all of it by way of returning to his rooming condo to safe a pistol he simply can have introduced with him? How might a conspiracy that went un-penetrated for 50 years were thrown jointly within the and a part days among the statement of the president's course and the assassination itself?
As Bob investigates, one other voice enters the narrative: understanding, ironic, virtually conventional, that of a talented, Yale-educated veteran of the CIA Plans department. Hugh Meachum has secrets and techniques and the potential and the desire to maintain them buried. while weighed opposed to his personal legacy, Swagger's existence is a mere expense—but to blunt the chance, he'll first need to ambush the sniper.
As every one guy hunts the opposite throughout today's globe and during the thickets of heritage, The 3rd Bullet builds to an explosive climax that may eventually turn out what Bob Lee Swagger has regularly identified: it's by no means too overdue for justice.

To show that Haack’s epistemology can be subsumed within the account of coherence as constraint satisfaction, 42 CHAPTER THREE I will reinterpret her principles in terms of the theory of explanatory coherence (TEC) and describe how crossword puzzles can be solved as a constraint-satisfaction problem by the computational model (ECHO) that instantiates TEC. TEC is informally stated in the following principles (Thagard 1989, 1992a, 1992b): Principle E1: Symmetry Explanatory coherence is a symmetric relation, unlike, say, conditional probability.
C divides into C+, the positive constraints on E, and C-, the negative constraints on E. With each constraint is associated a number w, which is the weight (strength) of the constraint. The problem is to partition E into two sets, A and R, in a way that maximizes compliance with the following two coherence conditions: • If (ei, ej) is in C+, then ei is in A if and only if ej is in A. • If (ei, ej) is in C-, then ei is in A if and only if ej is in R. Let W be the weight of the partition, that is, the sum of the weights of the satisﬁed constraints.
He was right: Karsten Verbeurgt proved that max cut, a problem in graph theory known to be NP-complete, can be transformed to the coherence problem (Thagard and Verbeurgt 1998, appendix). If there were a polynomial-time solution to coherence maximization, there would also be a polynomial-time solution to max cut and all the other NP-complete problems. , that the class of problems solvable in polynomial time is not equal to NP), we can conclude that the general problem of computing coherence is computationally intractable.
