The Dyadic Operator Approach to a Study in Conics, with some Extensions to Higher Dimensions

Description: The discovery of a new truth in the older fields of mathematics is a rare event. Here an investigator may hope at best to secure greater elegance in method or notation, or to extend known results by some process of generalization. It is our purpose to make a study of conic sections in the spirit of the above remark, using the symbolism developed by Josiah Williard Gibbs.

Some Effects of the War Upon the Mathematics Curriculum and the Motivating Forces at Work as Reflected in the Dallas City Schools

Description: "To discuss the effect all this war activity has had upon the Dallas Schools and to voice a protest against those who seek to discredit mathematics and at the same time to contribute a readable thesis upon the subject is largely the purpose of this study." --leaf 2

A Comparison of Velocities Computed by Two-Dimensional Potential Theory and Velocities Measured in the Vicinity of an Airfoil

Description: In treating the motion of a fluid mathematically, it is convenient to make some simplifying assumptions. The assumptions which are made will be justifiable if they save long and laborious computations in practical problems, and if the predicted results agree closely enough with experimental results for practical use. In dealing with the flow of air about an airfoil, at subsonic speeds, the fluid will be considered as a homogeneous, incompressible, inviscid fluid.

Some Properties of Negligible Sets

Description: In the study of sets of points certain sets are found to be negligible, especially when applied to the theory of functions. The purpose of this paper is to discuss three of these "negligible" types, namely, exhaustible sets, denumerable sets, and sets of Lebesgue measure zero. We will present a complete existential theory in q-space for the three set properties mentioned above, followed by a more restricted discussion in the linear continuum by use of interval properties.

Some Variation Properties of Real-Valued Functions

Description: The purpose of this paper is two-fold; we shall first establish a complete existential theory of functions of one real variable with respect to continuity, uniform continuity, absolute continuity, bounded variation, and Lipschitz condition, and second we shall study set-functions in a similar manner, except that the properties to be considered will be continuity, absolute continuity, bounded variation, and additivity.

The Buckling of a Uniformly Compressed Plate with Intermediate Supports

Description: This problem has been selected from the mathematical theory of elasticity. We consider a rectangular plate of thickness h, length a, and width b. The plate is subjected to compressive forces. These forces act in the neutral plane and give the plate a tendency to buckle. However, this problem differs from other plate problems in that it is assumed that there are two intermediate supports located on the edges of the plate parallel to the compressive forces.
