Twenty-second-century the US is probably not a lot worthy scuffling with for, yet Ryan Cawdor and his warrior survivalists push on, clinging to the deep wellspring of human desire that someplace within the uncooked, violent new frontier of a rad-blasted day after today is somewhere they could name home.
Weary, ill and hungry, the crowd slightly survives a trek during the torturous deserts of the Southwest which leads into the bayous of what used to be Louisiana, a spot considered one of their very own first known as domestic. The eerie, useless silence of the swamps warns of hassle forward. yet not anything can arrange them for Dr. Jean, a madman who has harnessed pre-Dark tech to create a military of crazed zombies marching towards his personal twisted imaginative and prescient of Deathlands domination.
He's a qualified shadow. A watcher who offers safety in probably adversarial occasions.

On mankind’s final venture to the moon, a killer comes alongside for the ride.
Since the 1st manned spaceflight in 1944, NASA has conquered the outer surroundings, explored Mars, and put nuclear missiles at the moon. yet investment for interstellar adventures—military or otherwise—has dried up. Now, NASA is making plans a last lunar challenge to close up the remnants of man’s first extraterrestrial colony. The nuclear missiles are supposed to be shot into the sunlight, yet an individual onboard the USS Conestoga would like to determine them fired towards Earth.
The evening prior to the project release, one of many astronauts is abducted from his lodge room and changed with a surgically altered physique double. by the point the opposite astronauts discover the deception, the Conestoga is just too faraway from domestic for NASA to aid. at the floor of the Moon, a decades-old conspiracy has reached its ultimate level, and Earth’s destiny hangs within the stability.

The elementary divisors of a polynomial matrix are uniquely determined. This follows immediately from the uniqueness of the invariant polynomial of polynomial matrices. Equivalent polynomial matrices possess the same elementary divisors. For a polynomial matrix of known dimensions its rank together with its elementary divisors uniquely determine its Smith canonical form.
M), where q1i(s), qj1(s) are the quotients and r1i(s), rj1(s) are the remainders of division of a 1i(s) and a j1(s) by a 11(s), respectively. Subtracting from the j-th row (i-th column) the first row (column) multiplied by qj1(s) (by q 1i(s)), we replace the entry a j1(s) ( a 1i(s)) by the remainder rj1(s) (r1i(s)). Next, among these remainders we find a polynomial of the lowest degree with respect to s and interchanging rows and columns, we move it to the position (1,1). We denote this polynomial by r 11(s).
