Also the Greeks, Ptolomy, came close to trigonometry but it was actually Al Battani who adopted the sine and cosine ratios which made the creation of the astronomical tables much easier. (Ronan 224) Even though the 9 th through the mid 10 th centuries were times of revolutionary improvements, the late 10 th through the early 12 th centuries were just as important. During this time improvements were made on previous discoveries of the Arabs as well as of course the ...

Thales Of Miletus A Brief History
851 wordsThe first thing I would like to say before I start this paper on Thales is that when dealing with ancient Greek mathemetitions, any "facts" you may uncover are really just educated guesses. The reason for this is, because all records back then were kept on cuneiform tablets. These tablets just did not hold up well over time, and were destroyed before anyone could really make a lasting, permanent record of his life and studies. (2) With this being said, let me share with you some of my findings o...

Einstein was as normal as they come, he just had a spark of imagination that did not let him quit thinking. A world without Albert Einstein would have been awful. The world would be very behind in technological advances, mathematics, physics, and even astronomy. There would not be any new true theorems in science until someone made the discovery Einstein did and threw out some of Newton...

Black Hole Event Horizon
767 wordsString theory is one of the most exciting and profound developments in modern theoretical physics. Unfortunately it is a highly technical subject that can only be well understood using the tools of Quantum Field Theory. It also doesn't hurt to know some mathematics like Group Theory, Differential Geometry, and Algebraic Geometry. Needless to say this is prohibitive for most people who are far too busy doing other things. String theory is to be a theory of quantum gravity, then the average size o...

Mathematical Principles Natural Philosophy
500 wordsAt his birth on Christmas day, 1642, in Woolsthorpe, Lincolnshire, England, Newton was so tiny and frail that he was not expected to live. Yet despite his boyhood frailty, he lived to the age of 85. As a delicate child, he was a loner, interested more in reading, solving mathematical problems, and mechanical tinkering than in taking part in the usual boyish activities. Until the time Newton entered Cambridge University in 1661, there was little inkling as to his mental prowess. His shyness kept ...

Understand New Concepts S A T Math
798 wordsA little over two years ago I began tutoring high school students in several types of mathematics, including preparation for the S. A. T. Test. While I did this initially to earn money, I have continued to tutor (often pro bono) because I enjoy the material and the contact with the students. I have always enjoyed math tremendously. I can remember riding in a car for long distances as a child and continuously calculating average speeds and percentages of distances covered as we traveled. In colle...

Natural Fractal Or Fractal Dimension Fractal Or Fractal Dimension Fractals
430 wordsJustin Cook Fractals Cook 1 Fractals are a modern mathematical theory that radically departs from traditionally Euclidean geometry, fractal geometry describes objects that are selfsimilar, or scale symmetric. This means that when such objects are magnified, their parts are seen to bear an exact resemblance to the whole, the likeness continuing with the parts of the parts and so on and so on to infinity. Fractals, as these shapes are called, must also be devoid of translational symmetry. Instead...

657 wordsEngland. When Wallis moved from his school in Ashford to Tenterden, he showed his potential for the first time as a scholar. In 1630 he went to Felted where he became proficient in Latin, Greek, and Hebrew. He later went to Emanuel College Cambridge and became first interested in mathematics. Because nobody at Cambridge at this time could direct his mathematical studies, his main topic of study became divinity and was ordained in 1640. During the Civil War, Wallis was so skilled in cryptography ...
