In this book, Jeremy Munday presents advances towards a general theory of evaluation in translator decision-making that will be useful to translator and interpreter training and to descriptive translation analysis. By ‘evaluation’ the author refers to how a translator’s subjective stance manifests itself linguistically in a text. In a world where translation and interpreting function as a prism through which opposing personal and political views enter a target culture, it is crucial to ... Read more

The relationship between private and public morality is clarified by exploring such questions as: "What prompts Christians to disagree on moral issues?" "Is there a Christian morality?" and "How are convictions related to decisions?" Using critical incidents or cases to ... Read more
The very scope of reliability analyses is to take decisions relative to engineering systems. This commands for radical changes in the probabilistic/statistical techniques used in reliability practice. Since the decisions to be taken have an engineering/economical relevance (one can incur a loss if the system fails before mission time), the superimposed cost structure does play a central role in any reliability problem. Only the Bayesian predictive approach allows to combine harmonically ... Read more

A decision procedure is an algorithm that, given a decision problem, terminates with a correct yes/no answer. Here, the authors focus on theories that are expressive enough to model real problems, but are still decidable. Specifically, the book concentrates on decision procedures for first-order theories that are commonly used in automated verification and reasoning, theorem-proving, compiler optimization and operations research. The techniques described in the book draw from fields such as ... Read more
