The occurrence of the words "Achademia Leonardi Vinci" on certain engravings, done after his drawings, of geometric "knots" or puzzle-patterns (things for which we have already learned his partiality), helped to give currency to this impression not only in Italy but in the North, where the same engravings were copied by Albrecht Diirer.
Tattoos of interlinked geometric shapes glowed on his arms before fading.
As it bears clipping well, it was formerly much used in geometric gardening.
The facade has the characteristic circular pediment with a large west window surrounded by three smaller windows separated by two ornamental roundels in coloured marble and of geometric design.
Also, as the Cartesian geometry shows, all the relations between points are expressible in terms of geometric quantities.
A large mosaic with geometric designs was also recently discovered in the centre of the city.
By the side of the Lechaeum road, near the steps leading to the propylaea, were found in deep diggings thirteen early Geometric vases.
Some of the gates without lintels are beautiful, and the geometric patterns in the walls extremely effective.
If K has a value nearly equal to unity, the pressure shift is z k2 " +3 (K- 1 - 1); and it is significant that for different values of n, the shifts should be in geometric ratio, because as stated above, the ratio occurring in the amounts observed with different lines of the same element are as 1: 2: 4.
(2) On the arithmetic, geometric and harmonic means between two straight lines, and the problem of representing all three in one and the same geometrical figure.
Hachette's principal works are his Deux Supplements a la Geometrie descriptive de Monge (1811 and 1818); Elements de geometrie a trois dimensions (1817); Collection des epures de geometric, &c.
In the second phase (700500 B.C.), sometimes called the fourth period, proto-Corinthian and Attic black figured vases are sometimes, though rarely, found, while local geometric pottery develops considerably.
They introduced a special style of ornament ("geometric") instead of that of the Bronze Age, characterized by spirals and marine animals and plants.
Several sites of the Early Iron Age have also been excavated in Greece, but nothing has been found to prove the origin of the " Geometric " culture, though accumulating evidence still indicates a northern source.
A Geometric cemetery was dug by the Germans at Tiryns, and their finds have been accurately published (1912).
Smaller elliptical houses were found near by, with geometric potsherds, bronzes, and a few iron weapons.
A pre-Hellenic settlement was found under the temple, marked by incised and painted geometric pottery.
Greaves were found at Glasinatz and Jezerin, though not at Hallstatt; two helmets were found at Hallstatt and others in Bosnia; broad bronze belts were numerous, adorned in repousse with beast and geometric ornament.
Vector ilL which is the geometric sum of ilK, KL.
The two forces at B will cancel, and we are left with a couple of moment P.AC in the plane AC. If we draw three vectors to represent these three couples, they will be perpendicular and proportional to the respective sides of the triangle ABC; hence the third vector is the geometric sum of the other two.
If extraneous forces act, it is seen in like manner that the resultant linear momentum of the system is in any given time modified by the geometric additiofi of the total impulse of the extraneous forces.
While Gabriel was written at the center of the geometric designs on Deidre's shoulders, the tattoo on the woman before her bore the name Rhyn.
Winter at Idrias have resulted in the discovery of Late-Mycenaean and Geometric pottery.
Such artistic faculty as survived elsewhere issued in the lifeless geometric style which is reminiscent of the later Aegean, but wholly unworthy of it.
They had geometric patterns with birds, trees, &c., and bore inscriptions in mosaic with the names of the donors.
' To measure this, guide pulleys are placed in the loops guided by a geometric slide, the one pulley carrying a scale, and the other an index.
- Typical painted Clay Vessel, with geometric pattern, standing on a conical point.
This lies similarly underneath an archaic Greek temple of Apollo, which was built apparently in the 7th century to replace the " Geometric " temple, an elliptical structure with an exterior ring of columns.
Most of these abuses have been checked or removed, and the results may perhaps be detected in a less accelerated rate of decline, which no longer proceeds in geometric proportion, and seems even almost arrested in some places, as in Samoa and New Zealand.
A similar procedure applies to a three-dimensional system, Thus if, 0 being the origin, OH represent any force P of the - system, the planes drawn through H parallel to the co-ordinate planes will enclose with the latter B N a parallelepiped, and it is evident H that OH is the geometric sum of 0 ~ ~----~ ~ ~---~>
Will be vertical by the hypothesis, and since the geometric sum of ~--~
(ii) Two forces in intersecting lines may be replaced by a force which is their geometric sum, acting through the intersection.
The result may be generalized into the statement that a frame has a critical form whenever a frame of the same structure can be designed with corresponding bars parallel, but without complete geometric similarity.
As he proceeded he put Descartes's matter in his own language and cast the whole argument into a geometric form.
Nor would this by any means militate against its use as a temple for consecrating the dead, or for sun-worship, or any other religious purpose.The most recent research suggests that Stonehenge was designed to a precise geometric plan,and was largely prefabricated.
Military science, seeing in history innumerable instances of the fact that the size of any army does not coincide with its strength and that small detachments defeat larger ones, obscurely admits the existence of this unknown factor and tries to discover it--now in a geometric formation, now in the equipment employed, now, and most usually, in the genius of the commanders.
In height and 91 in width) and are richly carved in geometric Saracenic patterns.
The mathematical influence of Monge had two sides represented respectively by his two great works, the Geometric descriptive and the Application de l'analyse a la geometrie.
In the same preface is included (a) the famous problem known by Pappus's name, often enunciated thus: Having given a number of straight lines, to find the geometric locus of a point such that the lengths of the perpendiculars upon, or (more generally) the lines drawn from it obliquely at given inclinations to, the given lines satisfy the condition that the product of certain of them may bear a constant ratio to the product of the remaining ones; (Pappus does not express it in this form but by means of composition of ratios, saying that if the ratio is given which is compounded of the ratios of pairs - one of one set and one of another - of the lines so drawn, and of the ratio of the odd one, if any, to a given straight line, the point will lie on a curve given in position), (b) the theorems which were rediscovered by and named after Paul Guldin, but appear to have been discovered by Pappus himself.
