Zodiac Calendars in the Dead Sea Scrolls and Their Reception: Ancient Astronomy and Astrology in Early Judaism

The traditional mathematical foundation of the Aramaic calendars within the lifeless Sea Scrolls is analysed during this research. Helen R. Jacobus re-examines an Aramaic zodiac calendar with a thunder divination textual content (4Q318) and the calendar from the Aramaic Astronomical e-book (4Q208 - 4Q209), all from Qumran. Jacobus demonstrates that 4Q318 is an ancestor of the Jewish calendar at the present time and that it is helping us to appreciate 4Q208 - 4Q209.

There are several remedies for solving the peak forest problem. The most common one is to use magnetic driving, in which a coil is placed close to a cantilever covered with a magnetic material (usually cobalt) [44–46]. In this design, the cantilever is driven by a magnetic field induced by an AC current that passes through the coil. 12 Side view of a design of a liquid cell showing a possible mechanism to oscillate the cantilever. A piezoelectric ceramic is located below one of the supporting balls and far away from the liquid meniscus.

In order to minimize shear forces and to accurately control the force applied while imaging, several methods have been developed, and a brief description is given below. 3) and is very similar to pulsed force microscopy [31]. It was originally developed as a scanning mode to minimize shear forces and to accurately control the force applied on an image, while the tip is in contact. In JM-AFM, a force-extension measurement is performed on each of the pixels of the image. 9). From this cycle it is clear that shear forces are minimized because lateral motion is always performed out of contact and that the applied force is controlled because the zero-force level is known and adjusted for each cycle.
