    The biggest human computing organization in the world was established in New York in and is described by David Grier in his remarkable book When Computers Were Human. 2 The so-called Mathematical Tables Project was a depression-era, make-work project for Roosevelt's Works Progress Administration. It was intended to employ out-of-work. If I say that Ezra was the second founder of the religion of Israel, I do not mean to imply that everything in the later Judaism owed its origin to him, still less that what survived from the pre-exilic Judaism was only what he endorsed and gave out again. The older religion had come down from a far-distant past; the ancient writings, prophetic.

    Midnight is expressed as hours and every time during the day is expressed in four digits. For instance, A.M. = hours, and 12 noon = hours, and Supplied only with Shortrede’s Tables of seven-figure (in the mantissa) logarithms of trigonometrical functions (tabulated for every 1 second of arc - beware the lozenge), Chambers’ Tables of seven-figure logarithms of natural numbers, pen and paper, surveyors calculated such diverse.

BIOGRAPHIES The following brief biographies includes astronomers, mathematicians, architects, craftsmen and authors worldwide who have contributed to gnomonics. Some of the subjects are better known in other fields, but their contributions to dialling are stressed here. This is by no means a comprehensive list, but does include the most important figures.

The main table gives values of the six trigonometrical functions at interval of 4 seconds of time (i.e., 1 minute of arc), usually to 5S, in the range 0 to 3 hours.

(Whenever the leading figure is unity, five further digits are given.) First differences are usually given, with their proportional parts alongside the tables.

The tables of Borda and Delambre having become difficult to procure, and seven-figure tables being no longer sufficient for the accuracy required in astronomy and geodesy, the French government in issued an eight-figure table containing (besides logarithms of numbers to ,) log sines and tangents for every ten seconds (centesimal) of.

The tables contain seven-figure logarithms toand to to 20 places, some antilogarithms to 20 places, hyperbolic logarithms from 1 to 10 at intervals of 01 and to at intervals of unity to 7 places, logistic logarithms, log sines and tangents to every second of the first two degrees, and natural and log sines, tangents.

4to, Paris, ) contains methods for calculating the movements of translation and rotation of the heavenly bodies, for determining their figures, and resolving tidal problems; the second, especially dedicated to the improvement of tables, exhibits in the third and fourth volumes ( and ) the application of these formulae; while a fifth.

Hassler, Tabulae logarithmicae et trigonometrical (New York,stereotyped), gives seven-figure logarithms tolog sines and tangents for every second to 1°, and log sines, cosines, tangents, and cotangents from 1° to 3° at intervals of 10” and thence to 45° at intervals of 30", Every efiort has been made to reduce the size of.

The calculation of tables of the natural trigonometrical functions may be said to have formed the work of the last half of the 16th century, and the great canon of natural sines for every 10 seconds to 15 places which had been calculated by Rheticus was published by Pitiscus only inthe year before that in which the Descriptio appeared.

The Table U. containing the logarithms of the trigonometrical func- tions sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent, have been obtained for every second in the following way; by Dr. L5w the logarithms of the sine and tangent in intervals partly ofpartly of seconds were calculated to 15 decimals and for the first four degrees for every Balcombe (a military camp and village), Mount Martha, Dromana, Rosebud, Rye, Sorrento and then Portsea on the extremity of the peninsula and the location then of the Officer Cadet School, the Australian Army’s second officer factory.

The tables contain seven-figure logarithms toand to to 20 places, some antilogarithms to 20 places, hyperbolic logarithms from i to to at intervals of oi and to at intervals of unity to 7 places, logistic logarithms, log sines and tangents to every second of the first two degrees, and natural and log sines, tangents, secants.

At the end of the 18th century the French produced the Tables du Cadastre which were only available in manuscript form (see entry for Prony). Towards the end of the 19th century, Mr. Sang published a seven-figure table of logarithms for numbers up tothe last half of which was a new calculation.

LOGARITHM (from Gr. X yos, word, ratio, and &pc0,u6s, number), in mathematics, a word invented by John Napier to denote a particular class of function discovered by him, and which may be defined as follows: if a, x, m are any three quantities satisfying the equation a^x = m, then a is called the base, and x is said to be the logarithm of m to the base a.

Logarithmic and Trigonometric Tables by Hart, William L. and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at There is thus an advance half way towards the arrangement now universal in seven-figure tables.

In appeared the original edition of Sherwin's tables, the first of the series of ordinary seven-figure tables of logarithms of numbers and trigonometrical functions such as are in general use now. In the familiar Chambers's seven-figure tables completed a century of service to mathematicians and computers of all kinds.

L. J. Comrie. On the basis of.In the second book I shall show this independently of all particular cases: at present we must be content with induction.

This publication shows that the Pythagorean habit of secrecy was being abandoned; secrecy was contrary to the spirit of Athenian life. The Sophist Antiphon, a contemporary of Hippocrates, introduced the process of exhaustion for the purpose of solving the problem of the quadrature.
