Page 35 - F sin pt, and let us multiply the second equation by i and add it to the first. We then have The movement of the point Z representing the complex number z then serves as well to show the movement corresponding to x. We need only consider the projection of Z on the axis of x. A solution of the differential equation may be obtained by writing z = z0ep".

Page 76 - Now we have shown above that a positive value of the functional determinant <pu\f/v — <pv^u means that Z2 is on the positive side of Zi, so that in this case Z moves in the positive sense (that is, in the direction from the positive axis of x to the positive axis of y) with increasing values of a. With a negative value Z moves in the opposite direction. Let us now suppose that the curves x = const. and y — const. in the uv plane intersect except on a certain curve where their direcu FIG.

Page 115 - We begin the integral curve over the upper part at the vertical x = a at a point E, the ordinate of which is arbitrary, and draw the broken line as far as F on the vertical x = b (Fig. 82). Then we integrate back again over the lower part, continuing the broken line from F to G. The line EG measured in the unit of length set down for the ordinates is equal to the area measured in units of area, this unit being a rectangle formed by PO and the unit of ordinates. That is to say, the area is equal to...

Page 51 - On the back side of the movable part of an ordinary slide rule there generally is a scale y = 2 + log sin t. When this part is turned round and the scale is brought into contact with the scale y = log x, we obtain for any position of the instrument log x — log sin t — log x...

Page 65 - When the functions <p(u, v) and ^(M, v) are defined for the values u, v of a certain region, they will furnish for every point u, v of this region a point in the xy plane. Let us call this a depiction of the uv plane on the xy plane. Similarly a function of one variable x = <p(u) might be said to depict the u line on the x line.

As long as the celestial body does not materially alter its declination the diagram in this position will enable us to find any of the three values <p, h, a from the other two. As a second example let us consider the relation between the declination...
