distorted in such a way that many of the structure's features can be seen as both convex shapes and concave impressions. This is a very good example of Escher's mastery in creating illusion of "Impossible Architectures". The windows , roads, stairs and other shapes can be perceived as opening

not necessary for the image to form. [ 1 ] When we look through a diverging lens (at least one concave surface) or look into a convex mirror , what we see is a virtual image. However, if we observe a focused image on a screen inside or behind a converging lens (at least one convex side

Logarithmically concave function print that page

In convex analysis , a non-negative function f  : R n → R + is logarithmically concave (or log concave for short) if its domain is a convex set , and if it satisfies the inequality for all x , y ∈ dom f and 0    θ    1 . If f is strictly positive, this is equivalent
