Steve Morse's almost mythical musical capabilities need no introduction. Marrying blazing chops to a singular sense of hook writing creativity, his distinctive brand of rootsy American virtuosity has inspired generations of players to think outside of the pentatonic box. Morse is renowned for reeling off what he calls "un-guitaristic" lines of seemingly impossible complexity. These keyboard- and fiddle-inspired trademark phrases often consist of no more than a single note on any given string. This kind of one-note-per-string arpeggio picking is typically regarded as the domain of fingerpickers, not flatpickers. Yet the effortlessness with which Morse nails these gymnastic routines is the obvious clue that something mechanically magical is happening under the hood.
Testimony is the third studio album, and the first concept album, by Neal Morse. Released in 2003, this double record is in five sections detailing the composer's life and conversion to Christianity. The album features performances from ex-Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy and Kerry Livgren of Kansas, although the majority of instruments are played by Morse himself.
Filmed in the Netherlands towards the end of an extensive tour schedule, this is a stunning performance from beginning to end, encompassing the bulk of the 'Grand Experiment' album plus a selection of strong progressive tracks from older releases, such as 'Lifeline' and 'Testimony'…

Cet ouvrage est une introduction aux méthodes modernes de la topologie symplectique. Il est consacré à un problème issu de la mécanique classique, la " conjecture d'Arnold ", qui propose de minimiser le nombre de trajectoires périodiques de certains systèmes hamiltoniens par un invariant qui ne dépend que de la topologie de la variété symplectique dans laquelle évolue ce système. …
