Poincare's fourteen essays collected in Science and Hypothesis are divided into four main sections by the authors: part 1, Number and Magnitude, consists of essays "On the Nature of Mathematical Reasoning" and "Mathematical Magnitude and Experience"; part 2, Space, contains "Non-Euclidean Geometries," "Space and Geometry," and "Experience and Geometry"; part 3, Force, offers essays on "Classical Mechanics," "Relative and Absolute Motion," and "Energy and Thermodynamics"; part 4, Nature, consists of essays "Hypotheses in Physics," "Theories of Modern Physics," "Probability Calculus," "Optics and Electricity," "Electrodynamics," and "The End of Nature."
He concluded that the 1887 experiment had in fact detected absolute motion because he consistently measured an "aether wind" speed of approximately 10km/sec even with ever more precise instruments.
[As an aside, this absolute motion velocity of 840 km/s is larger than those stated in [3] for the De Witte Experiment, larger than Earth's velocity wrt the Cosmic Microwave Background and larger than most author's estimates.
To initiate the simulation of spacecraft's absolute motion, the initial configuration of spacecraft in the inertial space can be calculated by
A higher absolute motion sense error was found in the fatigued state of dancers and controls.
The TV also offers absolute motion clarity via a refresh rate that is significantly faster than that of a typical LED TV.
Another first-rate factor in LG's advanced OLED technology is its Absolute Motion Clarity.
It follows from Figures 1(f), 2, 4, and 5 that the trajectory of absolute motion of load M in the inertial reference frame E is almost a symmetric curve with [y.sub.2] axial symmetry.
What is our true, or absolute motion? High-school physics taught you that, per Isaac Newton, all motion is relative; that there is no "absolute standard of rest." But that was then and this is now.
Frequently used models are the absolute motion and the relative motion models.
The sound mathematical principles of absolute motion of continua, like those previously introduced (Hamel, 1956; Iacob 1959; Onicescu, 1972; Liggett, 1994) are a proper basis for an extension to relative motion in large spaces.
(The word luminiferous is from Latin, meaning "light-carrying," and ether harks back to Aristotle's aether--see 350 B.C., Five Elements.) This luminiferous ether was thought to be in a state of absolute rest, and the Earth was thought to be moving at some particular speed relative to it, called Earth's absolute motion.
