Applications for calculus were geometrical and related to physical world. - Gottfried Leibniz – calculus was more about analysis of change in graphs. 2. Who are the father of calculus? Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibnitz 2. Why study Calculus? * Calculus is the study of how things change and provides framework for modeling systems in which there is change and a way to deduce the predictions of such models; Calculus provides a way for us to construct relatively simple quantitative models of change and to deduce their consequence. By studying this, you can learn how to control the system to do make it do what you want it to do. CHAPTER 1: FUNCTIONS AND LIMITS FUNCTIONS * A bunch of ordered pairs of things with property that the first members of the pairs are all different from one another.

...The Japanese economy unexpectedly shrank last quarter as a hike in the sales tax in Q2 continued to weigh on economic activity. As we have stated on numerous occasions, the lack of activity at the ground level in Japan and the failure of a weakening yen to significantly boost exports is killing economic activity. The yen initially weakened on the back of Japan’s all-important GDP figures as the Nikkei rallied, before Japanese equities began to fall and the yen reversed its course. The numbers were so bad as to spook the market sufficiently to result in the aforementioned sell-off in equities. GDP fell a seasonally adjusted 0.5% q/q and an annualised 1.6% q/q in Q3, missing expected increases of 0.5% and 2.2% respectively. The numbers show that the hike of the VAT in April is having a far more detrimental impact on the economy that initially expected, thus it should be enough evidence to persuade Tokyo to delay increasing the sales tax for a second time. Last week we postulated that Prime Minister Abe may officially push back an expected hike in the VAT by 18 months if today’s data was significantly worse than expected. This was supported by rumours from the Japanese media and some cryptic comments from law makers. After today’s very disappointing numbers, we are almost certain that Abe will announce in the coming days that the planned October increase in the VAT will be postponed by at least six months. The market reaction The initial sell-off in the yen is a likely...

...Exploring Taiwan---Taiwan Is Alive How does it feel like to live on a floating plate, unaware of probable earthquakes and tectonic movements? I understood how it feels like because I live in Taiwan! After an introduction to the geology of Taiwan, I found Taiwan a really active and dynamic island. This reminded me of an article I read on New York Times years ago; it titled: Taiwan Moves Closer to Mainland, Pulled by Forces That Molded Its Mountains. In the article, there were a research team built by three groups of geologists from three countries—Taiwan, United States of America and Japan. In order to learn the process of mountain building on Taiwan islands, they used seismic monitoring device and computer graphing to track the movement of tectonic plates. Such research found one of the facts that Taiwan is actually moving closer to Mainland China! Not to mention that Taiwan is growing taller and taller where our mountains has been rising above sea levels since 60 million years ago. I cannot help but wonder if Taiwan Island would join the Eurasia millions years after! Despite my fantasy of walking across Taiwan Strait to Eurasia many years after, it is amazing to learn that there are actually “underground” forces pushing and pulling Taiwan islands by millimeters every second. The most apparent connection between these forces and our lives on the island is earthquakes and volcanic activity. First, through my life until now, I have experienced at least thousand times of...

...Unity and Coherence in Essay Writing Skills for unity, coherence and development of a paragraph are not only applicable to writing an individual body paragraph when we write an essay, but can also help with handling the relations between body paragraphs. Unity Paragraph unity refers to the harmony between the topic sentence and supporting sentences in a paragraph. If we want to achieve such unity, the first thing we do is to decide on a topic sentence. When we write a single paragraph composition, the topic sentence is usually very broad because the paragraph may be dealing with many things which need a broad topic sentence to cover them all. However, when we write an essay of several paragraphs, the topic sentence for each body paragraph should be fairly specific because each body paragraph deals with only one of the many things stated in the thesis sentence. Take, for example, one of our familiar subjects, describing one’s hometown. If we are assigned to write one paragraph, we can begin with such a broad topic sentence as “My hometown is an unforgettable place,” and then proceed with describing the things that make it unforgettable, for instance, its beautiful landscape, its hospitable people, and its impressive modern industry. However, if we are to write an essay on the same subject, a statement like “My hometown is an unforgettable place” will become the thesis statement, while the things that make it unforgettable will be discussed in body paragraphs...
