Mrs. Perkins's Electric Quilt: And Other Intriguing Stories of Mathematical Physics

What does quilting need to do with electrical circuit idea? the answer's only one of the attention-grabbing ways in which best-selling renowned math author Paul Nahin illustrates the deep interaction of math and physics on the earth round us in his most recent ebook of not easy mathematical puzzles, Mrs. Perkins's electrical duvet. together with his trademark mixture of interesting mathematical difficulties and the old anecdotes surrounding them, Nahin invitations readers on an exhilarating and informative exploration of a few of the various methods math and physics mix to create anything tremendously extra strong, worthwhile, and engaging than both is via itself.

In a sequence of short and principally self-contained chapters, Nahin discusses a variety of themes during which math and physics are together established and together illuminating, from Newtonian gravity and Newton's legislation of mechanics to ballistics, air drag, and electrical energy. The mathematical matters variety from algebra, trigonometry, geometry, and calculus to differential equations, Fourier sequence, and theoretical and Monte Carlo likelihood. every one bankruptcy contains problems--some 3 dozen in all--that problem readers to attempt their hand at employing what they've got realized. simply as in his different books of mathematical puzzles, Nahin discusses the ancient history of every challenge, supplies many examples, comprises MATLAB codes, and offers whole and distinctive suggestions on the end.

Mrs. Perkins's electrical cover will entice scholars attracted to new math and physics functions, academics searching for strange examples to exploit in class--and a person who enjoys renowned math books.

Islamic Science and the Making of the European Renaissance (Transformations: Studies in the History of Science and Technology)

The Islamic medical culture has been defined repeatedly in bills of Islamic civilization and normal histories of technology, with so much authors tracing its beginnings to the appropriation of principles from different old civilizations--the Greeks specifically. during this thought-provoking and unique publication, George Saliba argues that, opposite to the commonly authorised view, the rules of Islamic clinical proposal have been laid good prior to Greek resources have been officially translated into Arabic within the 9th century.

Rethinking Knowledge Management: From Knowledge Artifacts to Knowledge Processes (Information Science and Knowledge Management)

This ebook readdresses basic concerns in wisdom administration, resulting in a brand new zone of analysis: wisdom tactics. McInerney’s and Day’s fabulous authors from a number of disciplines provide new and interesting perspectives on wisdom acquisition, iteration, sharing and administration in a post-industrial surroundings.

Computational Science and Its Applications – ICCSA 2013: 13th International Conference, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, June 24-27, 2013, Proceedings, Part II

The five-volume set LNCS 7971-7975 constitutes the refereed court cases of the thirteenth overseas convention on Computational technology and Its functions, ICCSA 2013, held in Ho Chi Minh urban, Vietnam, in June 2013. except the overall tune, ICCSA 2013 additionally contain 33 specified classes and workshops, in quite a few parts of computational sciences, starting from computational technology applied sciences, to precise components of computational sciences, resembling special effects and digital fact.

Description: The quarterback is instructed, from a pre-snap stance with football in hand, to deliver a pass to the opposite quarterback off of the second or third step to the left and then to the right. The quarterbacks align seven to eight yards from one another. The extra index finger follow-through and raised upper body torso separated from the off-balance lower run platform are critical. Page 18 Drill #9: Accuracy Drill Objective: To practice passing accuracy in a competitive, fun setting. Equipment Needed: One football per two quarterbacks; lined field.

Equipment Needed: One football per two quarterbacks; lined field. Description: This drill is the next step in the teaching progression of the coordinated pass drop and pass delivery for straight drop-back pass action. Two quarterbacks face one another, five to ten yards apart. On cadence, the quarterback with the football takes the determined drop (three-, five-, seven-step). He delivers a pass to the opposite quarterback and then comes back to his original alignment. The other quarterback executes the drill in the same fashion.

This drill actually overemphasizes separating of the upper-throwing platform and the lower-running platform because the passer is throwing behind his body position as he works around the circle. Leading with the chest and extra index finger follow-through are paramount to a good move pass delivery. Page 28 Drill #19: Quick Release Pass Drill Objective: To develop the skill of a quick passing release from a set position. Equipment Needed: One football per quarterback. Description: Two receivers are positioned 12 yards from the quarterback and seven yards apart.
