Page 32 - In virtue of isotropy and symmetry, we see that the pull or pressure on each of the six faces of this figure, required to keep the substance in the condition (a, /?, y), is normal to the face.
Page 491 - Si dans cette equation [xviu. 5] on donne successivement a ft. et à v toutes les valeurs entières depuis 1 jusqu'à P, on aura un système d'équations symétriques de l'ordre P, que l'on pourra représenter par le symbole (63...
Page 343 - Meynert's theory of its anatomical connections. It is right to state that Meynert's opinion is based on no proof whatever, and the physiological view is equally speculative. It was supposed to account satisfactorily for the idiocy or imbecility of most of the cases. But examination of the literature shows that where there has been imbecility there has always been some other grave brain defect. On the other hand, the cases of Eichler, Paget, Malinverni, Jolly, and that recorded by me, and the second...
Page 496 - I»'s are seen to be the same, the series of pairs of first suffixes in every row and the series of pairs of second suffixes in every column being 12, 13, 14, 15, 23, 24, 25, 34, 35, 45 ; that is to say, the combinations arranged in ascending order, of the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, taken two at a time. On the first side of the identity are 10 products, and as both factors of each product contain 10 terms, the result of the multiplification would be to produce 1000 terms of the form the whole expansion...

Page 508 - Vandennonde's, and his notation essentially the same as Laplace's. To this definition and the proof of the theorem regarding the effect of the interchange of two indices or two letters seven pages are devoted, and then a fresh step is taken. The exact words of the original (pp. 13, 14) must be given, as they distinctly foreshadow a great theorem of later times. " 14. Si nous développons cette expression (kl\(m v \ (kp\(ml\ le résultat sera \ab)(ab) ~ (ab)((ib) donc nous avons cette équation (...
Page 407 - Whatever the cause may be of each slight difference between the offspring and their parents — and a cause for each must exist — we have reason to believe that it is the steady accumulation of beneficial differences which has given rise to all the more important modifications of structure in relation to the habits of each species.

On the other hand, any mere modification, fresh presentment, or extension of a previously known result, is notified to the right of the original number of the result, and under the new writer's name in the horizontal series. Instead of the Arabic figures placed in the gnomon-shaped spaces, a cross or other uniform mark would have sufficed, but in order to increase the usefulness of the table, a number has been inserted, telling the page (counting...
