# Topic: Algebraic form

###### In the News (Sun 20 Apr 14)

 The mathematics of human thought As a result of his new algebra of logic, in 1849 Boole was appointed to the chair of mathematics at the newly founded University College, Cork. Since his algebra was intended to capture some of the patterns of logical thought, his definitions of addition and multiplication had to correspond to some basic thought processes. Moreover, it would be easier to do algebra if he could define addition and multiplication in such a way that they had many of the familiar properties of addition and multiplication of numbers, making his new algebra of thought similar to the algebra everyone was used to. www.maa.org /devlin/devlin_01_04.html   (1881 words)

 PlanetMath: algebraic system All of the examples are trivially algebraic structures, if we “forget” one or more (or all) of the operators. Therefore, as a ring, a field is an algebraic structure. This is version 28 of algebraic system, born on 2006-03-07, modified 2007-02-23. planetmath.org /encyclopedia/AlgebraicStructure.html   (466 words)

 Springer Online Reference Works Algebraic numbers cannot be very closely approximated by rational and algebraic numbers (Liouville's theorem). The problem of approximation of algebraic numbers by rational numbers is one of the more difficult problems in number theory; attempts to solve it yielded very important results, including the Thue, Thue–Siegel and Thue–Siegel–Roth theorems, but its ultimate solution is still nowhere in sight. Algebraic numbers, which are a generalization of rational numbers, form subfields of algebraic numbers in the fields of real and complex numbers with special algebraic properties. eom.springer.de /a/a011590.htm   (1274 words)

 The Dispatch - Serving the Lexington, NC - News Most complex numbers are transcendental, because the set of algebraic numbers is countable while the set of complex numbers, and therefore the set of transcendental numbers, is not (since the union of two countable sets is countable). ==Algebraic integers== An algebraic integer is a number which is a root of a polynomial with integer coefficients (that is, an algebraic number) with leading coefficient 1 (a monic polynomial). The name algebraic integer comes from the fact that the only rational numbers which are algebraic integers are the integers, and because the algebraic integers in any number field are in many ways analogous to the integers. www.the-dispatch.com /apps/pbcs.dll/section?category=NEWS&template=wiki&text=Algebraic_number   (564 words)

 Algebraic form In the mathematics of the nineteenth century, an important role was played by the algebraic forms that generalise quadratic forms to degrees 3 and more, also known as quantics. It would be a possible direct method in algebraic geometry, to study the orbitss of this action. For algebraic forms with integer coefficients, generalisations of the classical results on quadratic forms to forms of higher degree motivated much investigation. www.infomutt.com /a/al/algebraic_form.html   (326 words)

 Chessville - Misc. - Codes, etc. - Notation - Algebraic In what follows, I will describe the most commonly used form of algebraic, which is sometimes referred to as “simple algebraic notation,” or just plain "algebraic notation," or even the parsimonious "algebraic." Then I'll mention a couple of other less-commonly used forms of algebraic notation, just in case you ever come across them. One of the advantages of figurine algebraic notation is that it avoids the problem of different languages using different letters for some of the pieces in regular algebraic. Figurine algebraic is easy enough to follow and it shoulhouldn't present you with any special problems. www.chessville.com /misc/misc_codes_notation_algebraic.htm   (949 words)

 Algebraic Integers The degree of an algebraic number a is the minimal degree of a nonzero polynomial p(x) with integral coefficients having a as root. Algebraic integers are roots of a polynomial with integral coefficients and leading coefficient 1. Exercise An algebraic integer a of degree d is root of a polynomial with integral coefficients of degree d. www.win.tue.nl /~aeb/an/an.html   (584 words)

 Algebraic number Summary If an algebraic number satisfies a polynomial equation as given above with a polynomial of degree n and not such an equation with a lower degree, then the number is said to be an algebraic number of degree n. In fact, it is the smallest algebraically closed field containing the rationals, and is therefore called the algebraic closure of the rationals. The name algebraic integer comes from the fact that the only rational numbers which are algebraic integers are the integers, and because the algebraic integers in any number field are in many ways analogous to the integers. www.bookrags.com /Algebraic_number   (1453 words)

 Gardener of Thoughts - MDNT For example, in a 2-dimensional space, each algebraic solution has 2 relational polar solutions; first: the "normal" solution; second: the module is negative and the angle is added a Pi. The polar form is the set of polar factors (module and angles) that are associated to an algebraic form. The solution polar form is formed by all sets of solution polar factors that define an algebraic form (this is the relational polar form plus the periods of each angle). www.gardenerofthoughts.org /ideas/fluonmatrix/mdnt.htm   (880 words)

 17. The IMPS Special Forms form is to define a new recursive data type to be added (as a conservative extension) to some existing theory. This form builds a quasi-constructor named name from the schema specified by lambda-expr-string, which is a lambda-expression in the language named language-name. This form is used to build translations from selected theory multiples and to transport natively defined constants and sorts from these multiples. imps.mcmaster.ca /manual/node23.html   (5296 words)

 [No title] This form creates a repeated multiplication where the arity is determined by the exponent and the base is introduced as the arguments using transfer. Because of this dual use, the boundary form of cardinality is considered to be a generalized form of cardinality. This form is in I. 4.If a and b are of opposite sign and the positive number has fewer units, the negative number can be split by inverse collection and that part cancelled out, e.g. www.lawsofform.org /docs/jjames-thesis.txt   (15548 words)

 Entry Level Expectations While geometry, statistics, discrete mathematics, and other fields are obviously important, the strong consensus among mathematicians at the college level is that inadequate mastery of arithmetic and algebra is the greatest impediment to success in college mathematics, whether for general education or in mathematically intensive courses of study. Be able to form inverses, converses and contrapositives of implications expressing geometric (and other) propositions, give definitions of geometric terms, make valid geometric deductions with explanations, and give coherent proofs of geometric propositions. Employ confidently the formal properties and algebraic techniques associated with each family, be able to relate the parameters of each family to corresponding graphs, and use these functions in applications. www.ribghe.org /mathematicsexpectations.htm   (2069 words)

 This tutorial is to get you familiarized with complex numbers and is in no way intended to replace appendix A in our ...   (Site not responding. Last check: ) By reducing the differential equations for circuit variables into algebraic equation for phasors, a complex problem is reduced to simple high school algebra. A complex number is formed from two parts, a real part and an imaginary part. Using the previous equation for the definition of the number j, we can represent a complex number in two different forms and plot it on the complex plane where the vertical axis is the imaginary axis and the horizontal axis is the real axis. www.ee.umd.edu /class/enee204-2.F99/COMPLEX.HTM   (494 words)

 Infinitesimals and Transcendent Relations Second, Descartes' focus on algebraic expressions as composite magnitudes directed the attention of algebra away from the solution of equations and toward the analysis of their structure and the transformations that lead from one structure to another. He did not, he noted, need calculus to show that the circle and hyperbola did not have algebraic quadratrices, that is, that the areas of these curves or of any portion of them could not be expressed in closed algebraic form. Nonetheless, the new forms of expression, especially those containing the symbols d and, harbored operations and relations that were not readily reducible to intuitible finite forms, and hence Leibniz' argument could at best persuade his readers, not compel their understanding. www.princeton.edu /~mike/articles/canons/canons.htm   (8958 words)

 GNU Emacs Calc 2.02 Manual If you are not used to RPN notation, you may prefer to operate the Calculator in "algebraic mode," which is closer to the way non-RPN calculators work. Some people prefer to enter complex numbers and vectors in algebraic form because they find RPN entry with incomplete objects to be too distracting, even though they otherwise use Calc as an RPN calculator. Any variables in an algebraic formula for which you have not stored values are left alone, even when you evaluate the formula. www.delorie.com /gnu/docs/calc/calc_21.html   (1209 words)

 On the search for a finitizable algebraization of first order logic   (Site not responding. Last check: ) We give an algebraic version of first order logic without equality in which the class of representable algebras forms a finitely based equational class. Further, the representables are defined in terms of set algebras, and all operations of the latter are permutation invariant. The algebraic form of this result is Theorem 1 (a concrete version of which is given by Theorems 1.8 and 3.2), while its logical form is Corollary 4.2. www.math-inst.hu /pub/algebraic-logic/fin-abst.html   (145 words)

 Overviews   (Site not responding. Last check: ) As the name implies, algebraic numbers entered the mathematical lexicon with the advent of algebra, which had a major impact on scholarly thinking starting in the Middle Ages. Previous to the introduction of algebra, the idea of number was closely tied to notions of measure. The next generation of mathematicians, in the course of defining the elements of the calculus, noticed that the form of the coefficients could be extended to non-whole number quantities. www.limit.com /openers/views/views.html   (732 words)

 06w5025 Algebraic groups, quadratic forms and related topics   (Site not responding. Last check: ) The proof of the Bloch-Kato conjecture, first announced by Voevodsky during the highly successful BIRS 5-day workshop on Quadratic forms, algebraic groups and Galois cohomology (October 2003), is currently the topic of the year long program on at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton (2004/2005). In general, the Galois cohomology set \$H^1(F, G)\$ formed by such classes (over a given field \$F\$) does not have a group structure; for this reason, it is often convenient to have well-behaved maps from this set to an abelian group. Generic splitting fields were introduced by Amitsur and Roquette in the context of central simple algebras and by Knebusch in the context of quadratic forms. www.pims.math.ca /birs/birspages.php?task=displayevent&event_id=06w5025   (1479 words)

 Simplifying Algebraic Expressions There are many situations where you want to write a particular algebraic expression in the simplest possible form. Although it is difficult to know exactly what one means in all cases by the "simplest form", a worthwhile practical procedure is to look at many different forms of an expression, and pick out the one that involves the smallest number of parts. in expanded form, since for this expression, the factored form is larger. documents.wolfram.com /v4/MainBook/1.4.4.html   (322 words)

 Algebraic Structure of Complex Numbers For, without (1) and (2), the theory of complex numbers would not deliver the closure to the branch of algebra that drove much of its development, viz., the search for the roots of polynomial equations. In the complex plane the axes also are referred to as real and imaginary, although both are real enough to the extent that the only way to distinguish between the two is by means of orientation: the rotation from the real to the imaginary axis proceeds counterclockwise. which is known as the trigonometric form of complex number, its polar representation. www.cut-the-knot.org /arithmetic/algebra/ComplexNumbers.shtml   (1242 words)

 Algebraic properties: A complement of a Boolean number is obtained by interchanging 1 with a 0 and a 0 with a 1. The function with minterms is formed by priming the variable if the binary value is 0 and un-priming the variable if the binary value is 1. Unlike the minterm, the function with maxterms is formed by priming the variable if the binary value is 1 and un-priming the variable if the binary value is 0. www.cs.ccsu.edu /~varma/Spring2003/cs354/notes/chapter2.htm   (860 words)

 [No title] 2^a*3^b*n+c -- The general form of the arithmetic expressions which denote the set memberships of the fully anchored subsets in the abstract predecessor tree, used when the powers of 2 and 3 seem relevant. dn+c -- The general form of the arithmetic expressions which denote the set memberships in the abstract predecessor tree, usually used when the powers of 2 and 3 are not particularly relevant and/or before subsetting is completed so that the subsets are not yet unique to a particular left descent. In this work, the general form of the predecessor tree shows the smallest child and all its extensions as the infinite set of children of each parental node. www-personal.ksu.edu /~kconrow/glossary.html   (2014 words)

 PNNL STOMP - Theory Guide   (Site not responding. Last check: ) Numerical solution refers to the transformation of the governing conservation equations from partial-differential form to algebraic form, algebraic expression of boundary conditions, linearization of the coupled governing equations and constitutive relations and solution of the linear systems. Mass conservation equations for water, air, and VOC components are nearly identical in form, and therefore result in similar algebraic forms. The conservation equation for solute or salt transport is similar in form to that of the energy conservation equation but its discretization uses a different donor-cell weighting scheme, therefore resulting in a separate algebraic form. stomp.pnl.gov /documentation/theory_guide.stm   (1749 words)

 A Simple Introduction To Sequence Algebra If a sequence algebraist is presented with the Euler's form, he could have mistakenly interpreted F(z) as consisting of a sequence of natural numbers starting from 0 and that there are ao copies of the integer 0, a1 copies of the integer 1, a2 copies of integer 2 and so on. Note that although in sequence algebra, both power series and Laurent's seires are admitted, the latter form is favoured because of the ease of series expansion by algebraic packages and the clear visual division between duplicity factors (as numerator coefficients) and order indices of formal variables of z in the denominators. It is proposed to adopt the canonical form of 1/z^i to represent the ith integer measured from the zero origin of the number sequence. web.singnet.com.sg /~huens/paper1.htm   (3360 words)

 ELEMENTS OF CONTROL SYSTEMS Canonical form: A canonical form is a compact form of the mathematical model that involves minimal number of parameters. The assignment of the term ‘dissipator’ to such elements seems to be prejudiced by their association with heat, a form of energy that is degenerate and vulnerable to loss or dissipation, although the generated heat may indeed be intended for use, say for heating. In the case of static nonlinear elements, the description in the block symbol is either in the form of the functional description of the nonlinear characteristic or the graph of the nonlinear function. www.eolss.com /eolss/47a.htm   (4736 words)

 A Unified Algebraic Framework for Classical Geometry One trouble with this model is that, algebraically, the origin is a distinguished element, whereas all the points of E^n are identical. The concepts and theorems of synthetic geometry can be translated into algebraic form without the unnecessary complexities of coordinates or matrices. Geometric Algebra was applied to hyperbolic geometry by H. Li in [L97], stimulated by Iversen's book [I92] on the algebraic treatment of hyperbolic geometry and by the paper of Hestenes and Ziegler [HZ91] on projective geometry with Geometric Algebra. modelingnts.la.asu.edu /html/UAFCG.html   (2056 words)
