  • Our primary objective herein is not to determine how approximate calculations introduce errors into situations with accurate hypotheses, but instead to study how rigorous calculations transmit errors due to inaccurate parameters or hypotheses. Unlike quantities represented by entire numbers, the continuous quantities generated from physics, economics or engineering sciences, as represented by one or several real numbers, are compromised by errors.

  • The Essays which follow represent an attempt at intellectual coöperation. No effort has been made, however, to attain unanimity of belief nor to proffer a platform of "planks" on which there is agreement. The consensus represented lies primarily in outlook, in conviction of what is most likely to be fruitful in method of approach. As the title page suggests, the volume presents a unity in attitude rather than a uniformity in results. Consequently each writer is definitively responsible only for his own essay.

  • THE first two books of Aristotle's Physics do not deal with problems in what we today call physics: Aristotle's own titles for them were probably ,Qoncirjujjg_prindpks' and 'Concerning nature' (Ross,pp. 1-6), andhe^ntesjsaphilosopher, not as a scientist.

  • Mathematicians seek out patterns[9][10] and formulate new conjectures. Mathematicians resolve the truth or falsity of conjectures by mathematical proof. The research required to solve mathematical problems can take years or even centuries of sustained inquiry. Since the pioneering work of Giuseppe Peano (1858–1932), David Hilbert (1862–1943), and others on axiomatic systems in the late 19th century, it has become customary to view mathematical research as establishing truth by rigorous deduction from appropriately chosen axioms and definitions.
