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 ebook (4Q208 - 4Q209), all from Qumran. Jacobus demonstrates that 4Q318 is an ancestor of the Jewish calendar this day and that it is helping us to appreciate 4Q208 - 4Q209.

Variations in pressure are related to change in particle displacement through the equation of motion or Newton’s law of motion. Additionally, the density, pressure, and temperature of a medium vary periodically when a sound wave is passed through the fluid, thereby affecting the speed of sound. Combining the equations of continuity and motion gives the one-dimensional linear, lossless wave equation: where pr and pi are the reflected and incident pressures, respectively. 9 shows that the reflected wave will undergo a 1808 phase shift from the incident if the wave travels from material of low acoustic impedance to one of high impedance; that is, Z1 < Z2 .

Since the attenuation coefficient is measured for 100 keV g-rays, a fixed multiplication factor is used to convert these numbers to 140 keV. The attenuation map is calculated from the transmission projections using filtered backprojection. The second step in data processing is scatter correction, which must be performed on a pixel-by-pixel basis, since the number of scattered g-rays is not spatially uniform. The most common method uses dual-energy window detection: One energy window is centered at 140 keV with a fractional width (Wm ) of $20%, and a ‘‘subwindow’’ is centered at 121 keV with a fractional width (Ws ) of $7%.

Projections can be acquired either in a ‘‘stop-and-go’’ mode or during continuous rotation of the gamma camera. Image reconstruction can be performed either by filtered backprojection, as in CT, or by iterative methods. In either case, attenuation and scatter correction of the data are required prior to image reconstruction. Attenuation correction is performed using either of two methods. In the first, the attenuation coefficient is assumed to be uniform in the tissue being imaged. A patient outline is formed by fitting an ellipse or circle from the acquired data.
