Three individual stratigraphic units are drawn on the left side of the diagram. Each unit is found in isolation from the other units. On the right hand side of the diagram is drawn a larger stratigraphic sequence that contains volcanic members that have been dated by the potassium-argon method. The ages in millions of years are indicated for each such unit in the sequence on the left side of the diagram. On the right side for all of the stratigraphic units the paleomagnetic data is indicated with an “N” for normal polarity and “R” for reversed polarity. In each of the three left hand sites a fossil hominid has been discovered among the sediments and is indicated by a (*). From your knowledge of dating fossil sites, and from information found in the back of the book in the appendix on dating techniques, match the three sites on the left...

...SEQUENCE
* In mathematics, informally speaking, a sequence is an ordered list of objects (or events). Like a set, it contains members (also called elements, or terms). The number of ordered elements (possibly infinite) is called the length of the sequence. Unlike a set, order matters, and exactly the same elements can appear multiple times at different positions in the sequence. Most precisely, a sequence can be defined as a function whose domain is a countable totally ordered set, such as the natural numbers.
* For example, {M, A, R, Y} is a sequence of letters with the letter 'M' first and 'Y' last. This sequence differs from {A, R, M, Y}. Also, the sequence {1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8}, which contains the number 1 at two different positions, is a valid sequence. Sequences can be finite, as in this example, or infinite, such as the sequence of all even positive integers {2, 4, 6,...}. Finite sequences are sometimes known as strings or words and infinite sequences as streams. The empty sequence { } is included in most notions of sequence, but may be excluded depending on the context.
ARITHMETIC SEQUENCE
* A sequence such as 1, 5, 9, 13, 17 or 12, 7, 2, –3, –8, –13, –18 which has a constant difference between terms. The first term...

...In my research of the Fibonacci Numbers, I have found that the Fibonacci numbers appear anywhere from leafs on plants, patterns of flowers, in fruits, some animals, even in the human body. Could this be nature’s numbering system?
For those who are unfamiliar with the Fibonacci numbers they are a series of numbers discovered by Leonardo Fibonacci in the 12th century in an experiment with rabbits. The order goes as follows: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610 and so on. Starting with 1, each new number is simply the sum of the two before it. The ratio, which is called the Golden Ratio, between the numbers is 1.618034
The most exciting thing about the Fibonacci numbers is how it is portrayed in the human body. For example, the Fibonacci numbers can be seen in the human hand. We have 1 thumb on each hand, 2 bones in each thumb, 3 bones in each finger, 5 digits on each hand, and 8 fingers. You will also find that you have 1 nose, 2 eyes, 3 segments in each limb and the 5 fingers on each hand. Not to mention the Golden Ratio being found in the proportions and measurements of the human body. The ratio between the forearm and the hand. The ratio of the distance between the navel and the knee. The ratio of distance between the knee and the end of the foot. These are just a few examples that I found to be very interesting.
Aside from the body, the Fibonacci numbers are found in the majority of flowers. If you count the number of petals on a flower, you...

“ Describe the advantages and disadvantages of regional integration and relate the stage of economic development of the economically integrated region to potential business opportunities.”
In the following paper will attempt to convey both the advantages and disadvantages of regional integration demonstrated by various global trading blocs, analyze the economic development of several countries in the ASEAN bloc, and its effect on potential business opportunities.
Regional Integration
“Regional economic integration refers to agreements between countries in a geographic region to reduce tariff and non-tariff barriers to the free flow of goods, services, and factors of production between each other” (Hill, 2009 Ch. 8).
Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN)
“The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) was established as a regional
organization in 1967 to accelerate economic growth, promote regional peace and stability, and enhance cooperation on economic, social, cultural, technical, and educational matters among Southeast Asian countries. The...

...Sequence Essay
In a sequence essay, you are writing to describe a series of events or a process in some sort of order. Usually, this order is based on time. You organize the essay by writing about each step of the process in the order it occurred.
Example question: | Write an essay outlining the stages of the salmon life cycle. |
Introduction: | Describe what a salmon is like. |
Supporting paragraphs: | 1. Describe young salmon. |
| 2. Describe adult salmon. |
| 3. Describe what salmon do before they die. |
Summary paragraph: | Summarize the main steps of the salmon life cycle. |
Sequence Essay Example
Life Cycle of Tulips
The life cycle of tulips start when the bulbs are planted from mid-September to mid-November and ends when the leaves fade and eventually wither away. The cup-shaped flowers are beautiful to look at and have an ability to make a glum person cheerful. This article gives an insight into the life cycle of tulips.
Tulips were considered to be the flowers of God due to their beauty and perfection, by the Turks. Many of us believe tulips are native of Holland. Contrary to the belief, there is not a single species of tulip native to Holland. Tulips belong to Central and Western Asia and it were the nomadic tribes who brought the tulips to Turkey. Turkey was called the Ottoman Empire in olden days. It were the Turks who popularized this beautiful spring flower, tulip. In the late 16th...

...Sequences and Convergence
Let x1 , x2 , ..., xn , ... denote an infinite sequence of elements of a metric space
(S, d). We use {xn }∞
n=1 (or simply {xn }) to denote such a sequence.
Definition 1 Consider x0 ∈ S. We say that the sequence {xn } converges to x0
when n tends to infinity iff: For all > 0, there exists N ∈ N such that for all
n > N , d(xn , x0 ) <
We denote this convergence by lim xn = x0 or simply xn −→ x0 .
n→∞
Example 2 Consider the sequence {xn } in R, defined by xn = n1 . Then xn −→
0.
The way to prove this is standard: fix > 0. We need to find N ∈ N such that
for all n > N , d(xn , 0) < . We have d(xn , 0) = |xn − 0| = | n1 |
So it is enough that n1 < , or equivalently n > 1 . So choosing N > 1 we know
that for all n > N , d(xn , 0) < .
The fact that we define the concept of convergence does not imply that every
sequence converges. This is illustrated in the next two examples. Let’s begin
with a remark about what it means for a sequence {xn } not to converge to x0 .
Remark: To know what the non-convergence of a sequence means, we need
to write the negation of the definition of convergence. That reduces to: There
exists > 0, such that for all N ∈ N, there exists n > N such that d(xn , x0 ) ≥ .
For the ones of you familiar with propositional logic, notice that convergence to
x0 can be written as
(∀ > 0)(∃N ∈ N)(∀n > N )d(xn , x0 ) <
Its negation...

...Sequence stratigraphy
Sequence stratigraphy is a method of stratigraphic interpretation that combines the chronological order of the accumulation of sediments, their stratal architecture and the geometric relationships of their facies to determine depositional setting and predict stratal continuity. The workflow of sequencestratigraphic analysis first identifies the genetic units and bounding surfaces that compose thestratigraphic section in outcrop, core, well-log and seismic data. The framework formed by the genetic units and bounding surfaces is tied depositional models that explain the recurring character of sequencestratigraphic units and surfaces and provides a common terminology for each of these models, whatever the tectonic setting, depositional setting, sediment types (siliciclastics, carbonates, evaporites) data set that is available for analysis (e.g., seismic data versus well logs or outcrop). It is generally assumed that many of the strata and surfaces are related to changes in base level driven by eustasy.
The sequencestratigraphic methodology describes the order in which bodies of sediment were laid down and their geometric relationship to each other. It guides the interpretation of the origins of sedimentary rocks enabling the mapping and interpretation of single and multiple cycles of sedimentary rocks. The...
