Etymology[edit] Although the term is Hebrew, it most likely derives from Greek geōmetriā, "geometry", which was used as a translation of gēmaṭriyā, though some scholars believe it to derive from Greek grammateia, rather; it's possible that both words had an influence on the formation of the Hebrew word.[2][3] (Some also hold it to derive from the order of the Greek alphabet, gamma being the third letter of the Greek alphabet (gamma + tria).[4]) The word has been extant in English since the 17th century from translations of works by Giovanni Pico della Mirandola.


Although ostensibly derived from Greek, it is largely used in Jewish texts, notably in those associated with the Kabbalah. History[edit] Some identify two forms of gematria: the "revealed" form, which is prevalent in many hermeneutic methods found throughout Rabbinic literature, and the "mystical" form, a largely Kabbalistic practice.[5] A classic Biblical commentary incorporating gematria is Baal ha-Turim by Rabbi Jacob ben Asher.

Description[edit] Commutation[edit] Excitation[edit] Historical milestones[edit] Faraday's disk The first electric generator was invented by Michael Faraday in 1831, a copper disk that rotated between the poles of a magnet. Jedlik's dynamo[edit] Pixii's dynamo. In 1827, Hungarian Anyos Jedlik started experimenting with electromagnetic rotating devices which he called electromagnetic self-rotors.
