The treatment of irrational numbers in the secondary schools
(University of Missouri, 1908)
The subject matter of this paper was suggested by the belief that a treatment of irrational numbers, from the stand point of the "cut" number, has certain points of superiority over the common treatment from the standpoint ...
Vectors in four dimensions
(University of Missouri, 1909)
The interest attaching to n-dimensional geometry comes chiefly from two sources, first the light thrown upon analysis by a geometric interpretation of its results when more than three variables are involved, and second, ...
On the motion of a sphere on a rough horizontal plane
(University of Missouri, 1902)
The problem discussed in these pages is that of the motion of a billiard ball when struck by a horizontal cue. This is a special case of the motion of a sphere on a rough horizontal plane.
A vector treatment of the projective properties of plane curves
(University of Missouri, 1916)
1. Notations. Suppose that we have given a plan curve C, and a point O, not lying in the plane of the curve. If we draw vectors from point O, one to every point of the given curve, we produce a conical surface, the elements ...
Lorentzian warped products and static space-times
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 1985)
Let (M, g) be a Lorentzian manifold, (H, h) a Reimannian manifold, and let f: H [right arrow] (0, [infinity symbol] be an arbitarary smooth function. Then the product manifold M x H with Lorentzian metric g = (f[suprscript ...
