    Several definitions of the term "segment" are presented. Segment is the portion of a line between any two of its points. It can also refer to the region bounded by an arc of a circle and the chord that connects the endpoints of the arc. Segment is also the portion of a sphere included between a...

    In this paper, we study the extension of isometries between the unit spheres of normed space E and l p( p > 1). We arrive at a conclusion that any surjective isometry between the unit sphere of normed space l p( p > 1) and E can be extended to be a linear isometry on the whole space l p( p > 1)...

  • cone.  // American Heritage Student Science Dictionary;2009, p79 

    A description of cone is given. A cone is known as a three-dimensional surface or solid object in which the base is a circle and the sides narrow to form a point. The surface of a cone is formed mathematically by moving a line that passes through a fixed point (the vertex) along a circle.

    The packing densities of random close packing of equal hard spheres (RCPHS) are studied. The RCPHS is generated by a rearrangement algorithm with an optimization subroutine. Traditionally defined packing density, bulk density, is found to be 0.635 ± 0.002 by extrapolation to infinite number...
