Se ridicã mândra lunã,
Totu-i vis si armonie -
Noapte bunã!

Figure 16: A polygon P together with its visibility graph Gvis and the minimum base graph vis .
Simple Agents Learn to Find Their Way: An Introduction on Mapping Polygons
P (dashed parts) cannot easily be reflected in G(cid:63) vis .
Simple Agents Learn to Find Their Way: An Introduction on Mapping Polygons
Therefore, we naturally associate vis which is indistinguishable every vertex v of Gvis to the unique vertex of G(cid:63) from v .
Simple Agents Learn to Find Their Way: An Introduction on Mapping Polygons
As the counter-clockwise ordering starts on the boundary of the polygon, boundary arcs can be distinguished from non-boundary arcs in G(cid:63) vis .
Simple Agents Learn to Find Their Way: An Introduction on Mapping Polygons
At some point there would be only one class C (cid:63) left in vis .
Simple Agents Learn to Find Their Way: An Introduction on Mapping Polygons
Of course, no other vertex of G(cid:63) vis .
Simple Agents Learn to Find Their Way: An Introduction on Mapping Polygons
Because an loops, and hence the total number of vertices n is encoded in G(cid:63) vis, this means that n can always be upper bound on n is sufficient for finding G(cid:63) inferred by an agent knowing only an upper bound at the start.
Simple Agents Learn to Find Their Way: An Introduction on Mapping Polygons
The look-back agent can easily find such a class Cx by vis has – recall that a counting the number of self-loops that every vertex in G(cid:63) vis has the maximum number of class is a clique if and only if its vertex in G(cid:63) n/k − 1 self-loops.

The visualisation commands are too numerous to detail here. A full description of all commands is available in the Application Developers Guide. For example, a user would instantiate a user interface and then issue commands, such as “/vis/open OGL” and “/vis/drawVolume” to get an image of the detector.
The Geant4 Visualisation System - a multi-driver graphics system
The Ray Tracer can produce a JPEG file, either from its X11 version (described above, Section 6.1.3, and instantiated with “/vis/open RayTracerX”) or from this version that needs no graphics library, instatiated within “/vis/open RayTracer”.

The robustness of the calculated ratio against changes in the computational methods used will have to be evaluated vis-a-vis other models, e.g., those using 2-D radiation transfer.

Next, we comment qualitatively about structural similarities between the spatial distribution of emission in individual UIBs as obtained from ISOCAM (our U I B7.7 ; LW4, LW6 & LW8 maps of ZD), vis a vis the total emission due to all UIBs within the MSX band A (U I BA ).

The larger dispersion in the values of RC among the five regions considered here, is perhaps indicative of the observed variability of the strength of 12.7 µm feature vis-a-vis other UIBs at shorter wavelengths (e.g. among the sources whose ISOSWS spectra have been presented by Verstraete et al.

The Faraday rotation in this case is larger than the giant Faraday rotation observed in the paramagnetic (II,Mn)VI’s at optical frequencies117 and should be readily observable in the highly metallic samples.
