Parabola and EllipseI have been a little Geometric of late, and have produced: "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20070704 10:20:09
Re: Parabola and EllipseI like it! The conic sections are awesome, and i never knew that ellipse perimeter couldn't be solved with integration. Very cool! A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #3 20070705 09:12:16
Re: Parabola and EllipseOoh, these look very interesting. Some of the most advanced pages you've done, particularly the one on the perimeter of an ellipse. I can't see any mistakes though, although that could be because some of it's over my head. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #4 20070705 10:10:07
Re: Parabola and Ellipse(1/2)! etc, the Gamma function deals with them. Very interesting subject, and I hope (one day) to write a page about it "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #5 20070705 15:14:08
Re: Parabola and EllipseI added a small section about it to the end of the page on Factorial Function ! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #6 20070718 05:18:56
Re: Parabola and EllipseWhat about the latus rectum? There are 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary, those who don't, and those who can use induction. #7 20070718 08:14:31
Re: Parabola and EllipseGood suggestion, thanks "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman
