Deriving The Volume Of An N-ball
In geometry, a ball is a region in space consisting of all points within a fixed distance from a fixed point, and an n-ball is a ball in Rn. The volume of an n-ball is an important constant that occurs in formulas throughout mathematics.
Famous quotes containing the words deriving and/or volume:
“Todays pressures on middle-class children to grow up fast begin in early childhood. Chief among them is the pressure for early intellectual attainment, deriving from a changed perception of precocity. Several decades ago precocity was looked upon with great suspicion. The child prodigy, it was thought, turned out to be a neurotic adult; thus the phrase early ripe, early rot!”
—David Elkind (20th century)
“A German immersed in any civilization different from his own loses a weight equivalent in volume to the amount of intelligence he displaces.”
—José Bergamín (18951983)
