investigation into the origin of discoveries in mathematics and, to a lesser extent, an investigation into the mathematical methods and notation of the past. Before the modern age and the worldwide spread of knowledge, written examples of new mathematical developments have come to light only in a few locales...
thought lie in the concepts of number, magnitude, and form.[12] Modern studies of animal cognition have shown that these concepts are not unique to humans. Such concepts would have been part of everyday life in hunter-gatherer societies. The idea of the "number" concept evolving gradually over time is...
MEASUREMENT Physics, like the other sciences, is all about explaining the natural world. Measurement is at its very heart. Ever since humans have been thinking about their place in the universe, they have been making measurements. Have you ever wondered about any of these: • What would have been the first...
traditional subject matter in more detail and that this will advance the philosophical goals also. Actual formalisms (mostly ﬁrst order languages) for expressing common-sense facts are described in the references. Common-sense knowledge includes the basic facts about events (including actions) and their eﬀects...
Nikolai Weibull 1. Introduction In a narrow, yet highly unspecific, sense, a number system is a way in which humans represent numbers. We have limited our discussion already, for it is merely humans among all known species who have the ability to count and form numbers which we later can perform calculations...
Copyright 2004 by John Alexander Miller The Joys of the Craft Why is programming fun? What delights may its practitioner expect as his reward? First is the sheer joy of making things. As the child delights in his mud pie, so the adult enjoys building things, especially things of his own design...

Programming Languages The first programming languages predate the modern computer. From the first, the languages were codes. Herman Hollerith realized that he could encode information on punch cards when he observed that railroad train conductors would encode the appearance of the ticket holders on the train...
foundations for most of classical mechanics. In this work, Newton described universal gravitation and the three laws of motion, which dominated the scientific view of the physical universe for the next three centuries. Newton showed that the motion of objects on Earth and that of celestial bodies is governed...
medieval Islam, often termed Islamic mathematics or Arabic mathematics, is the mathematics developed in the Islamic world between 622 and 1600, during what is known as the Islamic Golden Age, in that part of the world where Islam was the dominant religion. Islamic science and mathematics flourished under...
