The Lexicon of Greek Personal Names, a major project of the British Academy, offers scholars a fully documented listing of all known personal names from the ancient Greek world. It draws on all the available evidence, primarily inscriptions but also literature, papyri, coins, vases and other artefacts; chronologically it ranges from the earliest times (though excluding Mycenean names) to about AD 600. It has benefited from the collaboration of scholars in many countries. It is intended to form the basis of a wide range of historical, philological, and literary research. The present volume, III.B, contains the onomastic material from Central Greece, comprising Phocis, Locris, Doris, Boeotia with Megara, and Thessaly. It continues the series begun with volume I, The Aegean Islands, Cyprus, and Cyrenaica, volume II, Attica, and volume III.A The Peloponnese, Western Greece, Magna Graecia, and Sicily.
Linear electric actuators (LEAs) and linear electric generators (LEGs) are widely used electromagnetic devices. This book deals with LEAs that convert electric energy into controlled mechanical motion of limited travel and LEGs that transform mechanical energy into electric energy. Examples range from loudspeakers and microphones to magnetically levitated material transfer in ultraclean rooms. Much of the literature on linear actuators and generators covers the principles of operation and performance calculations of these devices. Little has been published on their control or on detailed design methodologies. This book presents the first unified treatment of the subject, including the construction, operation, control and design of LEAs and LEGs. Chapters describe linear induction, permanent-magnet, linear reluctance, switched reluctance, and linear stepper actuators, as well as various types of linear electric generators. The text is amply illustrated with numerous design examples.
