Throughout history, there have been many contributions to Western civilization from the ancient Greeks. There have made long lasting contributions in the areas of government, , and mathematics. “Our plan of government favors the many instead of the few; that is why it is called a democracy (Document 3). Pericles was a wise and able statesman that led Athens during its golden age. He introduced direct democracy to Athens. In document 3, “As for social standing, advancement is open to everyone,…
the domain of geometry, nevertheless cannot so conveniently be applied to these metaphysical matters we are discussing” ( 102). Descartes states as clear as water that is there is a vast difference present between Mathematics and Metaphysics in regards to the synthetic approach. Firstly, Descartes points out that the hostility and obscenity present in the synthetic approach is visible in the first principal of Metaphysics, although the hostility and obscenity in not present in Geometry…
\chapter{Multiview Geometry} This chapter deals with the camera models, projection of scene into image plane and two view geometry. \section{Pin Hole Camera Model} A camera is a mapping between the 3D world (object space) and a 2D image. The principal camera of interest in this thesis is central projection. This describes about Pin Hole camera model which are matrices with particular properties that represent the camera mapping.\\ \begin{figure}[h] \includegraphics[scale =…
Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) was one of the most influential philosophers in the history of Western philosophy. However, Kant also had a reputation for developing difficult, not to say obscure, philosophical views. His concept of transcendental idealism was, and still is, considered to be one of the more philosophically perplexing positions. In 1769, the idea of transcendental idealism came to him and he then defined it the following year in his inaugural dissertation, On the Forms and Principles…
Throughout time, mathematics has always had an influence on society and its ideals. However, the presence of mathematical application is especially present in Plato's The Republic, and especially its effect on mathematical education. Plato's ideas on mathematics education can give reason as to why math influences many other subjects and can encourage critical and abstract thinking in young students. This includes giving students the ability to think abstractly, apply math to all other subjects…
respectively. If the oscillating frequency matches with the rear natural frequency of the building, it leads to resonance effect, which is matter of serious concern. The knowledge on vortex shedding effect on bluff bodies throws light on the design of geometry of the buildings (Kim et al., 2014). Although it is exceptionally ideal to have stream lined buildings, it is pragmatically not possible. But, certain measures can be taken to minimize the effect of vortex shedding on structures. Vortex…

Gothic cathedrals are often seen as the microcosm of the universe according to many intelligent sources, however gothic cathedrals are actually a result of the fusion between logic, beauty, and faith. The fusion between material and spiritual things began to rise in popularity during the high Middle Ages because during this time, due to trade, the people of the middle ages began to gain wealth and a love for materialistic things. The community of the middle ages valued both their material things…
also responsible for trisecting an angle and the construction of the regular pentagon. Bartholomeo Pitiscus had coined the term trigonometry in the title of his 1595 book, Trigonometria. This book was split into five parts on spherical and plane geometry. In 1609, a mathematician named Johann Kepler achieved the first major accomplishment of the century. Using planetary observations, Kepler devised the first two laws of planetary motion. In proving the second law, Kepler used an infinite…
contradistinction of principles, Rowe infers that during the Renaissance period, architects manipulated mathematical ratios to ultimately achieve absolute natural beauty. In addition, from the logic of ideal geometry Rowe delineates the difference between perceptual and conceptual. For Palladio geometry operates to improve the visual aesthetics or the perceived beauty of a building while for Le Corbusier…
