Der Beruf des Seelsorgers im Justizvollzug ist ein komplexes Handlungsfeld voller Probleme und Konflikte. Um für das kirchliche Handeln in den (ungarischen) Gefängnissen unter diesen Umständen Anhaltspunkte anzubieten, wurde systemisch untersucht, vor welche Herausforderungen Anstaltsseelsorger durch das System „Gefängnis“ gestellt werden. Die am kirchlichen Handeln in den Justizvollzugsanstalten Mitwirkenden sind zwangsläufig an zwei unterschiedlichen komplexen Systemen beteiligt und werden dadurch vor die Aufgabe gestellt, sich ein in beide Richtungen interaktionsfähiges System zu schaffen, das ein bewusstes und dynamisches Hin-und-her-Pendeln zwischen dem System „Kirche“ und dem System „Justizvollzug“ ermöglicht. Durch die Nutzung der Ressourcen, die sich in diesem Hin-und-her-Pendeln verbergen, kann ein bewusster Auf- und Ausbau der pastoralen Identität erfolgen.

Abstract  

This paper is a review of recent developments of a research line proposed on the turn of the decades, 1980s to 1990s. The main results concern basic qualitative properties of nonlinear models of population biology, such as controllability and observability. The methods applied are different for the density-dependent models of population ecology and for the frequency-dependent models of population genetics and evolutionary theory. While in the first case the classical theorems of nonlinear systems theory can be used, in the second one an extension of classical results to systems with invariant manifold is necessary.

Abstract  

An old problem in Isothermal Titration Calorimetry is the accurate characterisation of the instrument, i.e. the determination of the instrumental transfer function. Normally, this calibration is performed electrically or through well known chemical reactions, but the transfer function parameters obtained by both methods generally do not agree: the first method normally yields smaller time constants than the second one. This fact is explained by the different path the heat flux takes towards the thermal sink. However, the time constants must be independent of the experiment type (electrical or chemical). In order to attain this independency, a realistic physical model of the system is developed taking into account the different heat sources and the paths in the system and using physically attainable (experimental and theoretical) inputs for testing the model. Important results from the model study are that the instrument is represented by different transfer functions, depending on the heat source location, and that the time constants are the same, regardless of the heat source location. A very simple and fast method based on such non-phenomenological physical model for obtaining the transfer function of an Isothermal Titration Microcalorimeter is applied here.

Since the first publication of Economics of Shortage in 1980, an entire economist generation has grown up, whose members are well-versed in numerous sub-themes of the economic sciences. They find their way around the most modern methodological schools, yet they know significantly less about the workings of the social systems. To the younger generations, the socialist system, whose heritage still lives with us and whose characteristic behavioural forms and attitudes have not yet disappeared at all from the economic practices of the post-socialist countries, seems like the distant past, just like the Turkish occupation or the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy.The target audience of Kalligram Publishing House is this generation, to the majority of whom János Kornai’s works will probably come as a revelation. The years of crisis — whose end is still far off — has made even those uncertain about the workings of economic systems, who have personal experiences of the decades of socialism. Therefore, it would be quite important for them to re-read Kornai’s works written during the socialist era in order to be able to grasp the workings of economic systems through the help of balanced and objective analyses. Moving beyond the momentary shocks and nostalgias, the older ones also have a great need to evaluate the roles of the market and the state in a bias-free manner resting on a solid theoretical foundation, to realistically see the mechanisms of shortage and surplus economies. This way it is perhaps possible to avoid “going down the same river twice”, which disappears somewhere underground and never reaches the sea.
