This is a 3-D rendering of the planet Pluto.Since its discovery in 1930, the planet Pluto has gone unseen to the human eye, but that will change come July. That’s when the New Horizons spacecraft will reach the planet after a nine-and-a-half year journey.

April 11: Math Seminar: A Physical Method to Compute e^x

Behrend Section: 
School of Science

 

In a first-year calculus course it is often difficult to see how the standard and important transcendental functions such as sin x, cos x, e^x, and ln x are computed. Later, we learn that they can be expressed as Taylor series and hence can be approximated by polynomials. The trig functions, of course, have a physical interpretation in terms of trigonometry and therefore can be computed physically.
