La forma de las ruinas by Juan Gabriel Vásquez

By Juan Gabriel Vásquez

Los angeles forma de las ruinas es al mismo tiempo una intriga de investigadores e investigados, una novela profundamente autobiográfica y una intensa exploración histórica.

La novela más importante de Juan Gabriel Vásquez.

«Las teorías de los angeles conspiración son como enredaderas, Vásquez. Se agarran de lo que sea para subir y siguen subiendo hasta que no se les relatively lo que las sostiene.»

En el año 2014, Carlos Carballo es arrestado por intentar robar de un museo el traje de paño de Jorge Eliécer Gaitán, líder político asesinado en Bogotá en 1948. Carballo es un hombre atormentado que busca señales para desentrañar los misterios de un pasado que lo obsesiona. Pero nadie, ni siquiera sus amigos más cercanos, sospecha las razones profundas de su obsesión.

¿Qué conecta los asesinatos de Jorge Eliécer Gaitán, cuya muerte partió en dos los angeles historia de Colombia, y de John F. Kennedy? ¿De qué forma puede un crimen ocurrido en 1914, el del senador liberal colombiano Rafael Uribe Uribe, marcar los angeles vida de un hombre en el siglo XXI? Para Carballo todo está conectado, y las coincidencias no existen. Tras un encuentro fortuito con este hombre misterioso, el escritor Juan Gabriel Vásquez se ve obligado a internarse en los secretos de una vida ajena, al tiempo que se enfrenta a los momentos más oscuros del pasado colombiano.

Una lectura compulsiva, tan bella y honda como apasionante, y una indagación magistral en las verdades inciertas de un país que no acaba de conocerse.

«Una de las voces más originales de los angeles nueva literatura latinoamericana.»
Mario Vargas Llosa

Reseñas:
«El colombiano conjura en los angeles forma de las ruinas sus demonios y los de su país, lastrado aún por los angeles violencia y el narcoterror.»

«Gracias a una estrategia de realidad y ficción, el propio Vásquez se inventa a sí mismo como narrador y en cierto modo investigador de estos crímenes.»
Elena Hevia, El Periódico De Catalunya

«La investigación de Anzola es absolutamente hipnótica, una muestra de narrativa tensa, ágil, inteligente.»
Nadal Suau, EL Cultural de El Mundo

Many techniques have previously been proposed for using low-level CPU Performance Monitoring Counters in power estimation models. In this paper, we present some common myths of these techniques, and their potential impact. Such myths include: (1) sampling rate can be ignored; (2) thermal effects are neutral; and (3) memory events correlate well with power.

The most likely cause for the warmup effects is static power leakage from the processor, which is due to the high temperatures. 6GHz. It might seem that the only way to reliably monitor thermal effects is through embedded temperature sensors. However, since their placement inside the socket is some distance away from the top of CPU, embedded sensors do not provide reliable temperature data [3]. Also such sensors were not designed for high precision temperature reading, as their purpose is to provide an early warning system to prevent hardware damage.
