  • Trigonometric Functions

    Inverse Functions of Trigonometric Functions As high schoolers go their their teenage years of high school they learn from a variety of subjects. From math to science to history, there is a depth of knowledge to be learned. For math 3 and math 4, we are introduced to the world of trigonometry. So far, we have learned that there are currently three main trigonometric functions, cosine, sine, and tangent. But today I want to explore the other side of the trigonometric world, the inverse functions of cosine, sine, and tangent. For the first inverse function, cosine, we know that it is obviously the inverse of cosine. The cosine function uses a angle of a right triangle and gives use the ratio of the x-value and the r-value (“Trig Functions:…

  • Quartic Function: What To Do With The Sports Car

    In 1540, a man by the name of Lodovico Ferrari, please be aware that I don’t think his name has anything to do with the sports car, was an Italian mathematician known for discovering the solutions to quartic functions. A quartic function is a function of the form ax^4 + bx^3 +cx^2 +dx+e, where a is a nonzero, which is defined by a polynomial raised to the fourth degree, called quartic polynomial. We will probably go more in depth about these quartic polynomials soon in class. My quartic…

  • Copula Function Approach

    Li (2000) introduced copula function approach in the aspect of evaluating credit derivatives, the copula function has gradually become the main approach in pricing CDO (Burtschell & George, 2005). In Li (2000) paper, a new random variable named ‘time-until-default’ was created to demonstrate survival time of each defaultable entity. And the copula function approach is based on this random variable to evaluate the default probability of financial instruments. Specifically, copula function specify…

  • Manifest And Latent Functions Of Walmart

    supplies cheap goods, decent pay, and friendly service to consumers all over the nation. The consumers request the items. These items could range from yogurt and lip gloss to clothes and a new flat screen. Whatever our needs/want Walmart always has what we’re looking for, and if it’s not the cheapest they have a program that always you to get that extra money spent back. So to basically some it up, Wal-Mart and Society is equal to supply and demand. Are Wal-Mart’s functions for society similar…

  • Calculus: The Fundamental Theorem Of Calculus

    Fundamental Theorem of Calculus The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus evaluate an antiderivative at the upper and lower limits of integration and take the difference. This theorem is separated into two parts. The first part is called the first fundamental theorem of calculus and states that one of the antiderivatives of some function may be obtained as the integral of the function with a variable bound of integration. The second part of the theorem, called the second fundamental theorem of…

  • Fundamental Theorem Of Calculus Essay

    The fundamental theorem of Calculus: The fundamental theorem of calculus asserts the interrelated properties of integration and differentiation. It says that a function when differentiated, can be brought back by integrating (anti-derivative) or a function when integrated, can be brought back by differentiation. First theorem: Let f be a function that is integrable on [a,x] for each x in [a,b], then let c be such that a≤c≤b and define a new function A as follows, A(x)=∫_c^x▒f(x)dt, if a≤x≤b.…

  • Dirichlet And Legesgue, Henri Lebesgue's Contribution To Mathematics

    1. Henri Lebesgue [8] Lebesgue is credited for many amazing discoveries to different areas of mathematics. In the area of topology, Lebesgue is known for his covering theorem which is used for finding the dimensions of a set. He is also credited for his work on the Fourier series. He was able to demonstrate that using term by term integration of a series that were Lebesgue integrable functions was always valid and therefore, gave validation to Fourier’s proof of his series. What is now…

  • John Gutmann Analysis

    John Gutmann was one of America’s most distinctive photographers. Gutmann was born in Germany where he became an artist. He later fled Germany due to the Nazi’s because he was a Jew. Gutmann moved to San Francisco and re-established himself as a photojournalist captivating the lives of Americans. He mainly took photographs of people who were imperfect like himself because of his Jewish nationality. Gutmann targeted the poor, circus folk, the gay community and the rich. Two of Gutmann’s works are…

  • Employee Communication In The Workplace

    McNeill Lehman.3 Employee communication serves many functions in organisations ranging from informative, regulatory, integrating, managing, persuading, to branding4. In its informative function employee communication provides required information to personnel so they can perform their jobs in an effective and efficient manner. Employees need to be informed about any changes in procedure or policy related to their work. In its regulatory role, employee communication involves ensuring adherence…

  • The Importance Of Memory And Personal Identity

    Memory and personal identity are an integral part of our lives. These characteristics and traits assist us in the way we make decisions and approach situations. Memory in relation to personal identity is a topic that has been studied by several Philosophers. The question of whether or not memory presupposes identity is a circular one, and therefore makes this question important. To study this, I looked at Parfits theory of Psychological continuity, and how it was seen as problematic due to its…
