  Gaspard Monge - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An officer of engineers seeing it wrote to recommend Monge to the commandant of the military school at Mézières, and he was received as a draftsman and pupil in the practical school attached to that institution; the school itself was of too aristocratic a character to allow of his admission to it.
Monge contributed (1770–1790) to the Memoirs of the Academy of Turin, the Mémoires des savantes étrangers of the Academy of Paris, the Mémoires of the same Academy, and the Annales de chimie, various mathematical and physical papers.
Monge's memoir just referred to gives the ordinary differential equation of the curves of curvature, and establishes the general theory in a very satisfactory manner; but the application to the interesting particular case of the ellipsoid was first made by him in a later paper in 1795.

 Monge array - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
So whenever we pick two rows and two columns of a Monge array and consider the four elements at the intersection points, the sum of the upper-left and lower right elements is less than or equal to the sum of the lower-left and upper-right elements.
Any linear combination of Monge arrays is itself a Monge array.
A square Monge matrix which is also symmetric about its main diagonal is called a Supnick matrix (after Fred Supnick); this kind of matrix has applications to the traveling salesman problem (namely, that the problem admits of easy solutions when the distance matrix can be written as a Supnick matrix).

Monge eagerly embraced the doctrines of the revolution.
Monge also discussed the question as to whether, if in solving a problem certain subsidiary quantities introduced to facilitate the solution become imaginary, the validity of the solution is thereby impaired, and he shewed that the result would not be affected.

In those fateful minutes, all the measuring devices of "Monge", the biggest vessel of the French navy after its carrier, were at full capacity to record the maximum amount of data concerning those test flights of -unarmed- ballistic missiles.
This is where the five radars of "Monge" and her other devices are put into action, particularly to measure the "signature of the ballistic cortege" (the nuclear heads and the chaffs), altogether some 15 trajectories in order to verify their stealthiness and impact precision.
"Monge" (which name comes from the great mathematician Gaspard Monge, the father of descriptive geometry, a brief Navy minister during the French Revolution and one of the founders of Polytechnique school) had left its home port of Brest a few weeks before and made a port call in Madeira.

 Monge & Contractor: Emergence of Communication Networks
Monge and Eisenberg (1987) argued that asking people to provide their interpretations of one or more significant communication messages, events, or artifacts could create semantic networks.
In a study of a high-technology firm, a library, and a hospital, Contractor, Eisenberg, and Monge (1997) examined the semantic networks representing the extent to which employees shared interpretations of their organizations’ missions.
Early studies (e.g., Brass, 1981; Eisenberg, Monge, and Miller, 1984; Roberts and O’Reilly, 1979) reported contradictory and inconsistent findings about the extent to which individuals who were well connected, integrated, or central in their communication networks were more likely to be satisfied and committed to their organizations.

In the Monge coat of arms as in all coat of arms the crest is only one element of the full armorial achievement.

 Monge's Theorm and Desargues' Theorem, Identified
Monge's theorem says that for three disjoint circles of unequal radii, with no one contained in any other, the pairs of external tangents meet in three points that are collinear.
The theorem of Monge generalizes to quadruples of spheres, in the sense that the lines of intersection of externally tangent planes will all lie in the same plane.
If we take any pair of non-nested spheres of different radii, then there is a unique center of dilatation from which it is possible to scale on sphere into the other.

Toward the end of the paper we go a bit beyond the work of Monge, considering the Monge point in a special-case tetrahedron and concluding with a theorem by Mannheim.
