t For Disks. Large Disk mini-HOWTOAndries Brouwer, emailprotectedv1.0, 9606261. The problemSuppose you have a disk with more than 1024 cylinders. Suppose moreover thatyou have an operating system that uses the BIOS. Then you have a problem,because the usual INT13 BIOS interface to disk I/O uses a 10-bit field for thecylinder on which the I/O is …

Elliptic geometry (sometimes known as Riemannian geometry) is a non-Euclidean geometry, in which, given a line L and a point p outside L, there exists no line parallel to L passing through p. Elliptic geometry, like hyperbolic geometry, violates Euclid’s parallel postulate, which asserts that there is exactly one line parallel to L passing through …

Non-Euclidean geometry is any form of geometry that is based on axioms, or postulates, different from those of Euclidean geometry. These geometries were developed by mathematicians to find a way to prove Euclid’s fifth postulate as a theorem using his other four postulates. They were not accepted until around the nineteenth century. These geometries are …

Abstract Most historians and mathematicians consider Archimedes of Syracuse as one of the greatest mathematicians of all time. His achievements in mathematics were outstanding. He contributed many theorems in geometry that have applications in other fields such as engineering, physics, and astronomy. One of which he is most famous for is his theorem that measures …

Deriving the Distance Formula Distance Formula in Two Dimensions Figure 1. Graph of P1 and P2 To solve for distance between two points P1 and P2 , one can see that if we plot two points in two dimensions we can form something like in figure1. From figure 1, we can see that the two …
