Local (train)
In rail transport, a train (from Old French , from Latin , "to pull, to draw") is a series of connected vehicles that run along a railway track and transport people or freight. Trains are typically pulled or pushed by locomotives (often known simply as "engines"), though some are selfpropelled, such as multiple units. Passengers and cargo are carried in railroad cars, also known as wagons. Trains are designed to a certain gauge, or distance between rails. Most trains operate on steel tracks with steel wheels, the low friction of which makes them more efficient than other forms of transport. Trains have their roots in wagonways, which used railway tracks and were powered by horses or pulled by cables. Following the invention of the steam locomotive in the United Kingdom in 1804, trains rapidly spread around the world, allowing freight and passengers to move over land faster and cheaper than ever possible before. Rapid transit and trams were first built in the lat ... [...More Info...] [...Related Items...] OR: [Wikipedia] [Google] [Baidu] 

Local Fields (book)
''Corps Locaux'' by JeanPierre Serre, originally published in 1962 and translated into English as ''Local Fields'' by Marvin Jay Greenberg in 1979, is a seminal graduatelevel algebraic number theory text covering local fields ''Corps Locaux'' by JeanPierre Serre, originally published in 1962 and translated into English as ''Local Fields'' by Marvin Jay Greenberg in 1979, is a seminal graduatelevel algebraic number theory text covering local fields, ramification, ..., ramification, group cohomology, and local class field theory. The book's end goal is to present local class field theory from the cohomological point of view. This theory concerns extensions of "local" (i.e., complete for a discrete valuation) fields with finite residue field.

Local Language
* A regional language is a language spoken in a region of a sovereign state, whether it be a small area, a federated state or province or some wider area. Internationally, for the purposes of the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages, "''regional or minority languages''" ''means languages that are:'' #''traditionally used within a given territory of a State by nationals of that State who form a group numerically smaller than the rest of the State's population and'' #''different from the official language(s) of that State'' Recognition of regional or minority languages must not be confused with recognition as an official language. Influence of number of speakers There are many cases when a regional language can claim greater numbers of speakers than certain languages which happen to be official languages of sovereign states. For example, Catalan (a regional language of Spain, Italy and France, albeit the national language of Andorra) has more speakers t ...

Local Theory
In physics, the principle of locality states that an object is influenced directly only by its immediate surroundings. A theory that includes the principle of locality is said to be a "local theory". This is an alternative to the concept of instantaneous "action at a distance". Locality evolved out of the field theories of classical physics. The concept is that for an action at one point to have an influence at another point, something in the space between those points must mediate the action. To exert an influence, something, such as a wave or particle, must travel through the space between the two points, carrying the influence. The special theory of relativity limits the speed at which all such influences can travel to the speed of light, c. Therefore, the principle of locality implies that an event at one point cannot cause a simultaneous result at another point. An event at point A cannot cause a result at point B in a time less than T=D/c, where D is the distance betw ... [...More Info...] [...Related Items...] OR: [Wikipedia] [Google] [Baidu] 

Localglobal Principle
In mathematics, Helmut Hasse's local–global principle, also known as the Hasse principle, is the idea that one can find an integer solution to an equation by using the Chinese remainder theorem to piece together solutions modulo powers of each different prime number. This is handled by examining the equation in the completions of the rational numbers: the real numbers and the ''p''adic numbers. A more formal version of the Hasse principle states that certain types of equations have a rational solution if and only if they have a solution in the real numbers ''and'' in the ''p''adic numbers for each prime ''p''. Intuition Given a polynomial equation with rational coefficients, if it has a rational solution, then this also yields a real solution and a ''p''adic solution, as the rationals embed in the reals and ''p''adics: a global solution yields local solutions at each prime. The Hasse principle asks when the reverse can be done, or rather, asks what the obstruction is: ... [...More Info...] [...Related Items...] OR: [Wikipedia] [Google] [Baidu] 

Local Zetafunction
In number theory, the local zeta function (sometimes called the congruent zeta function or the Hasse–Weil zeta function) is defined as :Z(V, s) = \exp\left(\sum_^\infty \frac (q^)^m\right) where is a nonsingular dimensional projective algebraic variety over the field with elements and is the number of points of defined over the finite field extension of . Making the variable transformation gives : \mathit (V,u) = \exp \left( \sum_^ N_m \frac \right) as the formal power series in the variable u. Equivalently, the local zeta function is sometimes defined as follows: : (1)\ \ \mathit (V,0) = 1 \, : (2)\ \ \frac \log \mathit (V,u) = \sum_^ N_m u^\ . In other words, the local zeta function with coefficients in the finite field is defined as a function whose logarithmic derivative generates the number of solutions of the equation defining in the degree extension Formulation Given a finite field ''F'', there is, up to isomorphism, only one field ''Fk'' ...
