Now with even more languages for the commentary and subtitles: Commentary in Arabic, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish and Russian. Spherical Ring. A spherical ring is a sphere with a cylindrical hole cut so that the centers of the cylinder and sphere coincide, also called a napkin ring.

Spherical Ring

Let the sphere have radius and the cylinder radius Note that as illustrated above, the hole cut out consists of a cylindrical portion plus two spherical caps. Ring turns into a sphere. Math Gems. Student's t-distribution. In probability and statistics, Student's t-distribution (or simply the t-distribution) is a family of continuous probability distributions that arise when estimating the mean of a normally distributed population in situations where the sample size is small and population standard deviation is unknown.

Student's t-distribution

It plays a role in a number of widely used statistical analyses, including the Student's t-test for assessing the statistical significance of the difference between two sample means, the construction of confidence intervals for the difference between two population means, and in linear regression analysis. Math Symbols. From AoPSWiki This article will provide a short list of commonly used LaTeX symbols.

Operators Relations. Math Help. An Engineers Quick References to Mathematics Algebra Help Math SheetThis algebra reference sheet contains the following algebraic operations addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

It also contains associative, commutative, and distributive properties. There are example of arithmetic operations as well as properties of exponents, radicals, inequalities, absolute values, complex numbers, logarithms, and polynomials. Maths is flawed because of Zero. Clever student: I know!

Maths is flawed because of Zero

Now we just plug in x=0, and we see that zero to the zero is one! Cleverer student: No, you’re wrong! You’re not allowed to divide by zero, which you did in the last step. Which is true since anything times 0 is 0. Cleverest student : Weierstrass functions. Weierstrass functions are famous for being continuous everywhere, but differentiable "nowhere".

Weierstrass functions

Here is an example of one: It is not hard to show that this series converges for all x. In fact, it is absolutely convergent. Education.

Sowa. It presents a brief summary of the following topics for students and general readers of that book and related books such as Knowledge Representation and books on logic, linguistics, and computer science.

Maths Software. Bezier curves - a primer. Preface In order to draw things in 2D, we usually rely on lines, which typically get classified into two categories: straight lines, and curves.

Bezier curves - a primer

The first of these are as easy to draw as they are easy to make a computer draw. Give a computer the first and last point in the line, and BAM! Straight line. No questions asked. An Intuitive Explanation of Fourier Theory. Steven Lehar slehar@cns.bu.edu Fourier theory is pretty complicated mathematically. But there are some beautifully simple holistic concepts behind Fourier theory which are relatively easy to explain intuitively. There are other sites on the web that can give you the mathematical formulation of the Fourier transform. I will present only the basic intuitive insights here, as applied to spatial imagery.
