The pendulum is perhaps the simplest experimental devices ever constructed, and yet for all its simplicity it has historically enabled scientists to both investigate and enumerate gravity; the fundamental force that shapes the very universe. The pendulum has also allowed astronomers and geologists to measure the motion, mass and distribution of matter within the Earth, and its stately swing is at the very heartbeat of time. This book explores the many applications of the pendulum, from its employment as a fundamental experimental device, such as in the Cavendish torsion balance for measuring the universal gravitational constant, to its everyday, practical use in geology, astronomy and horology.

    Aunque el presente estudio pueda parecer, a primera vista al menos, no tener mas que un carácter un poco «especial», nos ha parecido útil emprenderle para precisar y explicar más completamente algunas nociones a las que nos ha sucedido hacer llamada en las diversas ocasiones en las que nos hemos servido del simbolismo matemático, y esta razón bastaría en suma para justificarle ...

  • Special Functions
    Haubold J. Hans
    Historically, the notion of entropy emerged in conceptually very distinct contexts. This book deals with the connection between entropy, probability, and fractional dynamics as they appeared, for example, in solar neutrino astrophysics since the 1970's (Mathai and Rathie 1975, Mathai and Pederzoli 1977, Mathai and Saxena 1978, Mathai, Saxena, and Haubold 2010).The original ...

  • Value Distribution in p-adic Analysis
    Alain Escassut
     The book first explains the main properties of analytic functions in order to use them in the study of various problems in p-adic value distribution. Certain properties of p-adic transcendental numbers are examined such as order and type of transcendence, with problems on p-adic exponentials. Lazard's problem for analytic functions inside a disk is explained. P-adic meromo...

  • John and Betty's Journey Into Complex Numbers
    Matt Bower
    Set in the genre of a children's book, John and Betty trace the evolution of complex numbers and explore their operations. From integers, to fractions, to surds, complex numbers are made to seem like an obvious extension. Incorporating graphing on the complex number plane and culminating in De Moivre's Theorem, the logic of complex numbers is made to seem intuitive and simple. ...

    Comets have not only blazed across the celestial vault throughout human history, they have embellished the night sky since the Earth itself formed some 4.5 billion years ago. Comets were among the first-born solid bodies in the solar system, and their frozen nuclei tell of the primordial chemistry and chaos that ultimately resulted in the formation of the planets, the evolution...
