Scars of a Boy Soldier is the story of the physical and psychological turmoil suffered by a 12-year-old boy when he's abducted into the Lord's Resistance Army in northern Uganda.
This 25-year-old Ugandan author faced violent memories that, for ten years, he had tried to repress. Forgotten tears were shed in the writing of this book. How should the story be told? What should be told? How much detail should be told?
Readers will get a unique insight into what happened to a young boy's mind when he was torn from his family and tortured into fighting.
This gripping story, beyond imagination, is written from the heart. Gruesome, but understated, and without gratuitous detail.
This is the second of a five-volume exposition of the main principles of nonlinear functional analysis and its applications to the natural sciences, economics, and numerical analysis. The presentation is self -contained and accessible to the nonspecialist. Part II concerns the theory of monotone operators. It is divided into two subvolumes, II/A and II/B, which form a unit. The present Part II/A is devoted to linear monotone operators. It serves as an elementary introduction to the modern functional analytic treatment of variational problems, integral equations, and partial differential equations of elliptic, parabolic and hyperbolic type. This book also represents an introduction to numerical functional analysis with applications to the Ritz method along with the method of finite elements, the Galerkin methods, and the difference method. Many exercises complement the text. The theory of monotone operators is closely related to Hilbert's rigorous justification of the Dirichlet principle, and to the 19th and 20th problems of Hilbert which he formulated in his famous Paris lecture in 1900, and which strongly influenced the development of analysis in the twentieth century.
