After reviewing recent research in Graph Drawings, in this book, author investigated: 1) Novel heuristic algorithms to solve the 1-page and 2-page BCNPs. They obtained the results better than or comparable with existing algorithms. 2) Genetic algorithms for the BCNPs. They obtained better results than the latest heuristic algorithms. 3) Two neural network models for the 1-page and 2-page BCNPs, respectively, and the convergence of the neural network models. Both models obtained good results. Especially, the model for the 2-page BCNP achieved much better performance than the existing model. 4) The complexity of parallel genetic algorithms, and the unified framework of PGA models in the form of function PGA (subpopulation size, cluster size, migration period, topology). 5) Theorems about the 1-page and 2-page BCNs for some kinds of structural graphs. 6) Proximity to the optimal crossing numbers for the evaluation of different algorithms on some kinds of structural graphs, and conjectures of 1-page and 2-page BCNs for some kinds of structural graphs.
The focus of this research is on seventeenth-century witchcraft in the Chesapeake. To date, there has not been an in depth study witchcraft in the early Southern colonies. Most studies of American colonial witchcraft tend to be either on the 1692 witchcraft hysteria of Salem. While both regions were comprised of English colonies, there were profound differences between the Northern and Southern colonists. These disparities resulted in dramatically different ways each group perceived the nature of witchcraft, and the way they dealt with it. To aid in the understanding of the place of witchcraft in the Southern worldview, the use of the traditional Puritan model of witchcraft as a heresy has been abandoned in favor of an English seventeenth-century model that holds witchcraft as a practice. Because this study covers criminal and civil trials over eighty years, it allows for a tracing of the evolution of the beliefs in the Chesapeake. As the social, political, and economic conditions on the frontier gave way to an emerging gentrified society, witches and their place in the Chesapeake were pushed to the background of a very colorful, eccentric society.
