Be it quotidian or haute cuisine, 'Caviar' or 'Quesadillas', cooking has always been a performance, in its experimentation to create an "appetite appeal" (Carafoli 146). This paper, through an analysis of Brad Bird and Jan Pinkava's directed, Disney animation Ratatouille, explores the engaging analogies and correlations between the processes in cooking and performance. The stage is being replaced by a single performative site - the kitchen, which becomes the theatre of action, producing the ultimate 'orgy of olfaction' (Kirshenblatt-Gimblett 7). A direct communication is shown to be reestablished between the spectator and the spectacle, between the actor and the spectator, from the fact that the spectator is invited to share the secret of the kitchen, and ultimately, is, not only affected by the sight, feel, taste, or smell of the final performative outcome - the food, but also impacted upon by the identity of the performer - Remy, the 'tiny chef' - nothing but a provincial rat. © Rupkatha Journal on Interdisciplinary Studies in Humanities.

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to discuss the methodology in building an integrated domain information system with illustrations that provide proof of concept Design/methodology/approach: The present work studies the usual search engine approach to information and its pitfalls. A methodology was adopted for construction of a domain-based information system, known as Aerospace Information System (AERIS), comprising six distinct steps in identifying and sourcing, evaluating and then technically integrating resources into the information system. AERIS is an integrated gateway for resources in the domain of aerospace science and technology. AERIS is designed to provide information from varied sources such as formal publications (e.g. articles), aggregators (e.g. harvesters) and also informal resources such as blogs and discussion fora. Interaction is provided through a simple user interface. Findings: The domain-based information system with focussed collection and services serves patrons with more precision than general web search engines. Research limitations/implications: At present the AERIS system is populated with a limited number of resources. A fully-fledged system may be developed based on the same model. Originality/value: This original research work provides a model for a comprehensive integrated gateway to domain-based information using open-source tools. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

The two-dimensional (2D) Poincaré plot of HRV signal reflects the effect of different external stimuli on ANS. The classification is generally done by fitting an ‘ellipse’ on the dense region of the constructed Poincaré plot of HRV signal. However, 2D Poincaré plot sometimes fails to describe the proper behaviour of the system. One such example is 2D Poincaré plot of HRV signal in pre-music and onmusic condition. In fact, 2D Poincaré plots in pre and on-music condition look almost similar for few subjects. So a proper classification tool is sought for. In this article, an improved technique called ‘3D Poincaré plot with proper delay’ has been applied to properly distinguish the pre-music and on-music state of some normal healthy subjects. © Springer India 2015.

Signal analysis is one of the finest scientific techniques in communication theory. Some quantitative and qualitative measures describe the pattern of a music signal, vary from one to another. Same musical recital, when played by different instrumentalists, generates different types of music patterns. The reason behind various patterns is the psycho-acoustic measures - Dynamics, Timber, Tonality and Rhythm, varies in each time. However, the psycho-acoustic study of the music signals does not reveal any idea about the similarity between the signals. For such cases, study of synchronization of long-term nonlinear dynamics may provide effective results. In this context, phase synchronization (PS) is one of the measures to show synchronization between two non-identical signals. In fact, it is very critical to investigate any other kind of synchronization for experimental condition, because those are completely non identical signals. Also, there exists equivalence between the phases and the distances of the diagonal line in Recurrence plot (RP) of the signals, which is quantifiable by the recurrence quantification measure τ-recurrence rate. This paper considers two nonlinear music signals based on same raga played by two eminent sitar instrumentalists as two non-identical sources. The psycho-acoustic study shows how the Dynamics, Timber, Tonality and Rhythm vary for the two music signals. Then, long term analysis in the form of phase space reconstruction is performed, which reveals the chaotic phase spaces for both the signals. From the RP of both the phase spaces, τ-recurrence rate is calculated. Finally by the correlation of normalized tau-recurrence rate of their 3D phase spaces and the PS of the two music signals has been established. The numerical results well support the analysis. © 2014 EDP Sciences and Springer.
