Undergraduates, The Right Questions, And Cayley Produce Results, Gary J. Sherman Dec 1991

Undergraduates, The Right Questions, And Cayley Produce Results, Gary J. Sherman

Mathematical Sciences Technical Reports (MSTR)

During the summers of 1989, 1990, and 1991, eighteen undergraduates participated in a National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates program at Rose-Hulman for which the author was the principal investigator. This paper provides some examples of the mathematics discovered during these three summers and discusses the philosophy, environment and process which made these discoveries possible.

Nebraska Tractor Tests

EXPLANATION OF THE TEST PROCEDURE General Tractors are tested at the University of Nebraska according to the Agricultural Tractor Test Code approved by the American Society of Agricultural Engineers and the Society of Automotive Engineers or official Nebraska test procedure. The manufacturer selects the tractor to be tested and certifies that it is a stock model. Each tractor is equipped with the common power consuming accessories such as power steering, power lift pump, generator, etc., if available. Power consuming accessories may be disconnected only when the means for disconnecting can be reached from the operating station. An official representative of ...

Oil In Bowling Green: A Lost Chapter In Wku's History, Jonathan Jeffrey Oct 1991

Oil In Bowling Green: A Lost Chapter In Wku's History, Jonathan Jeffrey

DLSC Faculty and Staff Publications

Bowling Green became the center of a five-county oil boom in the late-1910s. Two men working on construction of Western Kentucky University’s Potter Hall were determined to not be left out of the action. Architect William J. Bray and contractor Walter Brashear formed a syndicate to lease local land for oil exploration. In August 1920, WKU’s Board of Regents granted their company, The Great Arch Oil Company, exclusive rights to drill on the school’s farm. The majority of the company’s investors were school faculty and staff. Of the three wells drilled, only one showed promise and ...

Using Mathematics To Teach Calculus, Russell W. Howell May 1991

Using Mathematics To Teach Calculus, Russell W. Howell

ACMS Conference Proceedings 1991

For the past two years Westmont College has been one of the beta test sites for the calculus reform experiment being conducted at the University of Illinois under the direction of Jerry Uhl. Brown, Porta, and Uhl have created text which is integrated with Mathematica, a very powerful symbol manipulation, graphics, and number crunching software package produced by Wolfram Research, Inc. A preliminary version of this text has just been released [2]. We have used the Illinois materials for an honors course of incoming Freshmen with prior calculus experience. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the curriculum and ...


Can Mathematical Methods Yield Theological Truth?, Jan De Koning May 1991

Can Mathematical Methods Yield Theological Truth?, Jan De Koning

ACMS Conference Proceedings 1991

This paper discusses the negative impact mathematical methods in theology can have on the church by looking specifically at Arminius and Voetius, Dutch theologians living in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth century. Both Arminius and Voetius used mathematical methodology, although they came to different conclusions. I think their differences were due to their different worldviews, which in turn were fundamentally influenced by their upbringing. Both theologians, however, made the same mistake with their methodology and the church split because of that mistake.


How Has Christian Theology Furthered Mathematics?, Gene B. Chase May 1991

How Has Christian Theology Furthered Mathematics?, Gene B. Chase

ACMS Conference Proceedings 1991

In revising my Bibliography of Christianity and Mathematics to include material prior to the 20th century, it is difficult to know what to include and what to exclude, since Christian presuppositions informed much scholarship in a vague, cultural sort of way. This paper is a first cut at attempting to narrow down candidates for that Bibliography by looking for specific ways in which Christian theology has furthered mathematics.


Creator's Concept Of Infinity: Implications Of Infinity For Contingence, Bruce A. Hedman May 1991

Creator's Concept Of Infinity: Implications Of Infinity For Contingence, Bruce A. Hedman

ACMS Conference Proceedings 1991

Georg Cantor (1845-1918) was a devout Lutheran whose explicit Christian beliefs shaped his philosophy of science. Joseph Dauben has traced the impact Cantor's Christian convictions had on the development of transfinite set theory. In this paper I propose to examine how Cantor's transfinite set theory has contributed to an increasingly contingent world view in modern science. The contingence of scientific theories is not just a cautious tentativeness, but arises out of the actual state of the universe itself. The mathematical entities Cantor studied, transfinite numbers, he admitted were fraught with paradoxes. But he believed that they were grounded ...


Reviving The Argument From Design: Detecting Design Through Small Probabilities, William A. Dembski May 1991

Reviving The Argument From Design: Detecting Design Through Small Probabilities, William A. Dembski

ACMS Conference Proceedings 1991

How small do probabilities of events have to get before we refuse to attribute those events to chance? Smallness of probability is itself not enough since events with extremely small probability occur all the time. But when such events are also prespecified, it becomes difficult to attribute their occurrence to chance. Typically we search for a causal account of how chance was offset. Lacking such a causal story, however, are we still justified in asserting that an extremely improbable prespecified event was not the result of chance? This question is relevant to such diverse areas as prophecy, miracles, parapsychology, gambling ...
