Page 319 - Gramme, which is the weight of a cubic centimetre of distilled water, is the element for all weights.
Page liv - ... 17, &c. These numbers have formed a subject of investigation and inquiry from the earliest date down to the present day ; and a rule for finding them is still amongst the desiderata of mathematicians. The method of finding a prime number beyond a certain limit, by a direct process, is considered one of the most difficult problems in the theory of numbers, which, like the quadrature of the circle, the trisection of an angle, and the duplication of the cube, have engaged the attention of many able...
Page xxxi - Every equation of an even degree, involving only real coefficients of which the last term is negative, has at least two real roots, one positive and the other negative.
Page 319 - ... the unity of length, called a metre. In order to express decimal proportions in this new system, the following terms have been adopted. The term DešÓ prefixed, denotes 10 times ; Heca, 100 times ; ('Kilo, 1000 times ; and Myrio, 10,000 times. On the other hand, Deci expresses the 10th part ; Centi the 100th part ; and Milli the 1000th part : so that Decametre signifies 10 metres ; the Decimetre the 10th part of a metre ; &c. The Metre is the element of long measures ; Arc, that of square measures...
Page xxxviii - Transform an equation into one whose roots shall be the squares of the differences of the roots of the original equation...
Page 300 - G, the distance of the centre of gyration from the axis of motion, t, the time the force acts, v the velocity acquired by the revolving body in that time.

To what difficulties such journeys are subject, may be generally known from the accounts of travellers in the pursuit of natural history ; but it may not be uninteresting to the reader to be informed of Mr. Hasskarl's experience in that respect. The roads over the mountains of Peru are bad, mostly not broader than a bridle-path, and there...
