 Kids.Net.Au - Encyclopedia > Bell numbers The Bell numbers, named in honor of Eric Temple Bell, are a sequence of integers arising in combinatorics that begins thus: Each Bell number is a sum of "Stirling numbers of the second kind" The Stirling number S(n, k) is the number of ways to partition a set of cardinality n into exactly k nonempty subsets. www.kids.net.au /encyclopedia-wiki/be/Bell_numbers   (0 words)

 Spartanburg SC | GoUpstate.com | Spartanburg Herald-Journal In combinatorial mathematics, the nth Bell number, named in honor of Eric Temple Bell, is the number of partitions of a set with n members, or equivalently, the number of equivalence relations on it. The nth Bell number is also the sum of the coefficients in the polynomial that expresses the nth moment of any probability distribution as a function of the first n cumulants; this way of enumerating partitions is not as coarse as that given by the Stirling numbers. The number in the nth row and kth column is the number of partitions of {1,..., n} such that n is not together in one class with any of the elements k, k + 1,..., n − 1. www.goupstate.com /apps/pbcs.dll/section?category=NEWS&template=wiki&text=Bell_number   (0 words)

 Bell's Numbers Bell Numbers, or Bell's Numbers, are the sequence {1, 1, 2, 5, 15, 52, 203, 877, 4140, 21147....}. The Bell numbers are named for mathematician and writer Eric Temple Bell (1883-1960) because he was one of the first to do in-depth analysis of the sequence. Bell was a contributor to number theory, but is better known for his many books on the History of Mathematics. www.pballew.net /Bellno.html   (0 words)

 Bell's numbers are bubbling over - The Boston Globe Once the Bells knew their baby was going to be a boy, Bill Bell decided to nickname his son "Bubba." He would take his father's name on his birth certificate, but he would be known as Bubba Bell. LANCASTER, Calif. -- Once the Bells knew their baby was going to be a boy, Bill Bell decided to nickname his son "Bubba." He would take his father's name on his birth certificate, but he would be known as Bubba Bell. Bell has done about all he can to take advantage of the conditions at Lancaster -- which routinely has 30-mile-per-hour winds blowing out to right field -- and hit on the road. www.boston.com /sports/baseball/articles/2007/06/29/bells_numbers_are_bubbling_over   (540 words)

 Welcome to Powerball The lucky group of co-workers are Christine Bell of Imperial, Cheri Schmitt of Lebanon, Ill., Donna Jansberg of St. Louis, Arthur Duy and Sharon Martin-Reibe of St. Louis.

 Dynamics And Hierarchies A tree structure of Bell number diagrams allows recursive partitioning to be displayed in a less visually confusing manner that displaying it with a standard tree graph. Partitions with 1 or 2 items are not displayed as their own separate Bell number diagram since no additional information would be forthcoming; a single item canâ€™t be sub-partitioned, and two items can only be recursively partitioned in one way due to the prohibition against placing all items in a single partition. The reason for forbidding Bell number diagram with a single partition in classification diagrams becomes clear, the terms are absent from the right hand side of the equation as they are the terms we wish to solve for. www.tetration.org /Dynamics/DynamicsAndHierarchies.htm   (6678 words)

 Welcome to BachBrass.com For an instrument without a bell number stamped on it, it’s obviously more difficult to determine with certainty which bell was used. By knowing an instrument's serial number, which may indicate about when the instrument was made, and its bore size, a person can make a reasonable assumption about which bell is on it, even when the bell number is omitted. This is the only number found by the authors to date that relates a specific brass alloy produced by a brass manufacturer to a corresponding bell brass code. www.bachbrass.com /content/bachology/ref_article1.php   (4498 words)

 Telecom Order CRTC 2005-397 In its application, Bell Canada stated that it has identified system constraints, which were inadvertently not identified at product launch, that preclude the support of this number portability option at this time. Bell Canada indicated that it planned to implement a manual solution for LNP for out-of-territory primary numbers within four months, but that it was reluctant to undertake system modifications for LNP for secondary numbers. The Commission further considers that a six-month period is reasonable for Bell Canada to implement the necessary solution(s) with regard to fully supporting LNP for both primary and secondary numbers used in conjunction with its Bell Digital Voice Lite service. www.crtc.gc.ca /archive/ENG/Orders/2005/o2005-397.htm   (0 words)

 Notable Properties of Specific Numbers at MROB It is widely acknowledged that 60 was used in a number system because it has lots of factors; in fact it sets a record for having more factors than any smaller number. The Fibonacci sequence is the first recursive sequence studied in Europe; the relationship to phi was noticed in the 18th century and the occurrances of Fibonacci numbers in nature (such as flower petals) in the 19th century. After 100, 1000 and 1000000, the answer to "what's the biggest number you've heard of?" will usually be one or more of: billion, trillion, Avagadro's number, googol and googolplex. home.earthlink.net /~mrob/pub/math/numbers-6.html   (2477 words)

 Tales of Statisticians | Eric Temple Bell The Bell numbers (1, 1, 2, 5, 15, 52, and so on), a series of whole numbers arising in the theory of partitions, were first investigated by him, and are named for him. Bell's conviction at the time, that Fermat's unmatched insight into the character of numbers did not mislead him as to the existence of a proof, was vindicated recently when a proof was finally found. Bell's infectious love of number, his sense of the large sweep of mathematical history, and his generous anger at the fools and poopheads who all too densely populate that history, are his great legacy to posterity. www.umass.edu /wsp/statistics/tales/bell.html   (1394 words)

 Nick Sherman > Articles > Bell Centennial Bell Centennial is a family of four weights, designed by Matthew Carter at Mergenthaler, to take advantage of the then-newer composing and printing technologies, while still compensating for the limitations that did exist. Bell Centennial is a condensed sans-serif design that maintains legibility at very small sizes, allows for clear information structures, is economical on space, and accommodates for adverse production conditions; all while keeping to an intended typographic style. Bell Gothic worked fine when the directories were still being composed in hot metal on a Linotype machine and printed on a letterpress, but because it was designed for those production methods, it didn't hold up under the set of limitations presented by newer technologies. www.nicksherman.com /articles/bellCentennial.html   (1804 words)

 Ma Bell's Numbers The technology exists to reduce the number of phone numbers to blocks of 100 or so, but the phone companies are unwilling to invest in the new technology. Update (April 99): There are now 10 phone numbers for every man, woman, and child in the United States and Canada, (a total of 265 area codes) and the FCC still does not think it is enough. The number of assigned area codes has more than doubled in the past few years owing to skyrocketing use of cellular phones and pagers along with the growth of competitive local phone carriers. members.cox.net /mathmistakes/phone.htm   (886 words)

 Math Forum - Ask Dr. Math These numbers are famous, and even have a name. One remarkable formula for the Bell Numbers b(n) is infinity b(n) = (1/e)* SUM r^n/r!, n >= 1. Better is to know that the exponential generating function B(x) for the Bell Numbers is infinity B(x) = e^(e^x-1) = SUM b(n)*x^n/n!, n=0 so b(n) is the nth derivative of e^(e^x-1) evaluated at x = 0. www.mathforum.org /library/drmath/view/52270.html   (0 words)

 Set Partitions As a matter of curiosity, the Bell number for a set with N members, B(N), is the sum of the number of ways that it can be partitioned into 1, 2, 3,... The number of partitions increases rapidly with set size - more than a billion for 15 items - so it's not practical to count the number of ways by actually generating them. The program will generate Bell numbers up to the limit of the 64 bit integer type, about set size 25. www.delphiforfun.org /Programs/Math_Topics/set_partitions.htm   (641 words)
