    Carl Friedrich Gauss (1777-1855) Introduction: Carl Friedrich Gauss is considered one of the greatest mathematicians of all time. He is a creator in the logical-mathematical domain as he contributed many ideas to the fields of mathematics, astronomy, and physics. Being a math education major, I have come into contact with Gauss’ work quite a few times. He contributed greatly to the different areas of mathematics like linear algebra, calculus, and number theory. Creativity can be seen

  • Application Of The Gauss Newton Method

    As a final example of the application of the Gauss-Newton method, we attempted to find the best fit for a set of data with a sinusoidal function. This example illustrates how the Gauss-Newton method can applied to functions with more that just two variables, and that it can be applied to an equation of any form. In it, will attempt to model temperature data with a sinusoidal function. Below is a chart of the average high temperatures per month of the city of Monroe Louisiana (courtesy of weather

    Carl Friedrich Gauss, from his youth, was destined to be a great mathematician. By the time Gauss turned three, he had already taught himself to read and write. Additionally, Gauss often told acquaintances and friends that before he learned to speak, he learned to make mental calculations. Throughout his lifetime, Gauss made discoveries which would benefit many fields within mathematics. Gauss contributed greatly to the fields of arithmetic, statistics, geometry, algebra, and astronomy. The origin

    for us much of the science behind what we do. In this article we’re going to take a brief look at Carl Friedrich Gauss. Gauss was born in Germany in 1777. Interestingly, his mother (who happened to be illiterate) didn’t take note of the exact date he was born. She did, however, remember the day he was born in relation to the Christian holy days surrounding Easter. This provided Gauss a problem to work on in his early twenties – that of determining the correct day Easter should for any year. It was

    Georgii Gauss was a Russian Ecologist who wanted to investigate if two species that share the same niche would be able to coexist. Gauss set an experiment where he had two single-celled species of Paramecium, P. aurelia and P. caudatum, growing in test tubes. He fed them a bacterial culture called oaten medium and added fresh water to the test tubes. He measured the population of the species by themselves and while both species were growing together. The results indicated that both species of Paramecium

    their discoveries, we would be lost, confused, and not nearly as intelligent. Gauss was one of those heroes. Carl Freidrich Gauss was a German mathematician and a physical scientist also known as the “Prince of Mathematics”. He was born on April 30th, 1777 in Brunswick, Germany and was born to poor, working class parents. His mother was illiterate and his father was a gardener/brick layer. His father did not want Gauss to attend school, he wanted him to stay in the family business; but fortunately
