Page 41 - ... (that is, the slope of the tangent to the curve) at that point (positive if the tangent points upward, and negative if it points downward, moving to the right).
Page 55 - Thus the equation is a homogeneous equation, M and N being here of the first degree. To integrate a homogeneous equation it suffices to assume y = vx. In the transformed equation the variables x and v will then admit of separation. Thus in the...
Page 110 - It will be left as an exercise for the student to show that a similar procedure can be applied to a path which does not enclose the wire.
Page 3 - Lie group theory we shall call the system of demand functions "weakly" self-dual if the demand and inverse demand transformations can be arranged in pairs, the members of which are mutually inverse. That is to say, if, corresponding to a set of values of the essential parameters a...
Page 3 - So called because the effect of any one of them is to stretch the vector going from the origin to the point (x, y) in the ratio -.leaving its direction unaltered.
Page 20 - A single infinity of curves determined by an equation involving * an arbitrary constant is equally determined by a unique differential equation of the first order, of which the equation involving the arbitrary constant is the general solution. lif(x,y)=c and ш(х,у, t}=c...
Page 220 - point" (u, v) to the point (u', v'). The point (o, o) corresponds to the initial state of the given periodic motion and T will carry this point into FIG. 3 itself. T may be expressed as follows by means of power series in u and v : u = au bv v' = cu + dv + • • • where the dots stand for terms of higher degree than the first in u, v, while a, b, c, d may be readily calculated in terms of a.2 An interesting fact is that the determinant ad — be is exactly equal to i, a result which could have...
