Trouble: Crippled Underwater lodge in Pacific Ocean state of affairs: severe resolution: E-Force For billionaire Michael Xavier, the crowning glory of the Neptune lodge off Fiji is the fulfilment of a youth dream and grownup obsession -- to construct a visionary five-star lodge deep at the ocean ground. notwithstanding on Grand commencing evening the unthinkable occurs. a chain of huge earth tremors destroys the resort and leaves a handful of survivors, together with Xavier himself, trying the most unlikely -- to flee from a crumbling development a hundred metres underwater. inside of seconds of the catastrophe, the crack E-Force rescue crew is briefed, mobilised and en path to Fiji. however the scenario is much extra harmful than they can ever comprehend. For this can be no ordinary catastrophe. there's a very genuine enemy at paintings -- and his plans threaten the complete international

On mankind’s final challenge 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 venture 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 work out them fired towards Earth.
The evening sooner than the challenge 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 simply too faraway from domestic for NASA to assist. at the floor of the Moon, a decades-old conspiracy has reached its ultimate level, and Earth’s destiny hangs within the stability.

2) If, for example, i1(s) = 1, then m11 = m12 = … =m 1q = 0. 1. 1) is called elementary divisor of the matrix A(s). 3) are (s+2) and (s+2, 5). 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).
