Namely, this is the factor relating differences in time and length measurements by observers moving relative inertial frames. For terrestrial speeds, this gives an appropriate approximation. 38. 113) c. 1− v2 c For v c, the first approximation is found by inserting v/c = 0. Thus, one obtains γ = 1. This is the Newtonian approximation and does not provide enough of an approximation for terrestrial speeds. Thus, we need to expand γ in powers of v/c. First, we rewrite γ as γ= 1 1− v2 c2 = 1− v c 2 −1/2 .

When the first number to the right of the 1 in any row is a prime number, all numbers in that row are divisible by that prime number. The reader can readily check this for the n = 5 and n = 7 rows. • Sums along certain diagonals lead to the Fibonacci sequence. These diagonals are parallel to the line connecting the first 1 for n = 3 row and the 2 in the n = 2 row. 2 There are many interesting features of this triangle. But we will first ask how each row can be generated. We see that each row begins and ends with a one.

Andreas Freiherr von Ettingshausen (1796–1878) was a German mathematician and physicist who in 1826 intron duced the notation . However, r the binomial coefficients were known by the Hindus centuries beforehand. 36 mathematical methods for physicists This product does not seem to exist! But with a little care, we note that (−1)! (−1)(−2)! = = −1. (−2)! (−2)! So, we need to be careful not to interpret the combinatorial coefficient literally. There are better ways to write the general binomial expansion.
