God’s Caliph: Religious Authority in the First Centuries of by Patricia Crone

By Patricia Crone

This examine examines how spiritual authority was once dispensed in early Islam. It argues the case that, as in Shi'ism, it used to be focused within the head of country, instead of dispersed between discovered laymen as in Sunnism. initially the caliph used to be either head of kingdom and supreme resource of spiritual legislation; the Sunni trend represents the result of a clash among the caliph and early students who, as spokesmen of the group, assumed spiritual management for themselves. Many Islamicists have assumed the Shi'ite notion of the imamate to be a deviant improvement. against this, this booklet argues that it truly is an archaism maintaining the concept that of spiritual authority with which all Muslims begun.

Versicherungsmathematik by Dr. Walter Saxer (auth.)

By Dr. Walter Saxer (auth.)

(Zu Versicherungsmathematik eleven. ) In diesem "höheren" Band der Versicherungsmathematik haben wir uns durch geeignete Stoffauswahl vor allem das Ziel gesteckt, die Ver­ sicherungsmathematiker davon zu überzeugen, daß wichtige technische Probleme der Versicherungspraxis nur durch Verwendung der \Vahr­ scheinlichkeitstheorie und Resultate aus der mathematischen Statistik gelöst werden können. Daneben wollten wir die mathematischen Eigen­ schaften derjenigen Funktionen beschreiben, die im wesentlichen in der Versicherungsmathematik benutzt werden und mit Hilfe eines geeigneten Integralbegriffes eine einheitliche Darstellung der kontinuierlichen und diskontinuierlichen Methode geben. Das Kapitel über die Risiko­ versicherungen gibt zum erstenmal in einem Lehrbuch eine mathema­ tische Theorie der Unfall- und Sachversicherung. Die Kapitel über die Ausgleichung von Sterbetafeln und der von Herrn JECKLIN verfaßte Anhang über die Versicherung erhöhter Risiken dürften vor allem auch den Praktiker interessieren. Die einzelnen Kapitel sind weitgehend unabhängig voneinander und können einzeln verstanden werden. Lediglich der im ersten Kapitel definierte Begriff der Versicherungsfunktion wird durchgehend benutzt. Zwecks Unabhängigkeit der einzelnen Kapitel wurden mit Absicht gelegentlich gewisse Aussagen wiederholt. Es magazine auffallen, daß wir im Kapitel über die Mathematik all­ gemeiner Risikoversicherungen nur bestimmte Teile der Risikotheorie zur Darstellung brachten. Angesichts der Tatsache, daß ausgezeichnete moderne Darstellungen der Risikotheorie 1 vorliegen, haben wir auf ihre vollständige Aufnahme in dieses Kapitel verzichtet. Ferner werden in dieser Theorie maßtheoretische Begriffe und Sätze vorausgesetzt, deren Kenntnis für das Verständnis dieses Buches nicht unerläßlich ist.
