## Dedekind’s Theory of Real Numbers

Let $\mathbf{Q}$ be the set of rational numbers. It is well known that $\mathbf{Q}$ is an ordered field and also the set $\mathbf{Q}$ is equipped with a relation called “less than” which is an order relation. Between two rational numbers there exists an infinite number of elements of $\mathbf{Q}$. Thus, the system…

## Jablonski Diagram – Consequences of Light Absorption

All about the Light Absorption’s theory on the basis of Jablonski diagram. According to the Grotthus – Draper Law of photo-chemical activation: Only that light which is absorbed by a system, can bring a photo-chemical change. However it is not true that all the kind of light(s) that are absorbed could bring a photo-chemical change.…

## Essential Steps of Problem Solving in Mathematical Sciences

Problem solving is more than just finding answers. Learning how to solve problems in mathematics is simply to know what to look for. Mathematics problems often require established procedures. To become a problem solver, one must know What, When and How to apply them. To identify procedures, you have to be familiar with the different…

## Dirichlet’s Theorem and Liouville’s Extension of Dirichlet’s Theorem

Topic: Beta & Gamma functions The Gamma function and Beta functions belong to the category of special transcendental functions and are defined in terms of improper definite integrals. Definitions of Beta and Gamma functions are given below. But before that, let’s quote the statement of Dirichlet’s theorem so that we can work around Liouville’s extension…

## The Lindemann Theory of Unimolecular Reactions

In this article we will learn about the Lindemann Theory of Unimolecular Reactions which is also known as Lindemann-Hinshelwood mechanism. It is easy to understand a bimolecular reaction on the basis of collision theory. When two molecules A and B collide, their relative kinetic energy exceeds the threshold energy with the result that the collision…

## Wein’s Formula & Wein’s Laws

Various physicists tried to explain the problem of energy distribution in black body radiation, and finally, German Physicist Max Planck successfully solved the problem. Before him, German Physicist Wilhelm Wein and British Physicist Lord Rayleigh & James Jean have tackled this problem and have given important laws. In fact, the work of their scientists paved…

## Solving Ramanujan’s Puzzling Problem

Consider a sequence of functions as follows:- $f_1 (x) = \sqrt {1+\sqrt {x} }$ $f_2 (x) = \sqrt{1+ \sqrt {1+2 \sqrt {x} } }$ $f_3 (x) = \sqrt {1+ \sqrt {1+2 \sqrt {1+3 \sqrt {x} } } }$ ……and so on to \$ f_n (x) = \sqrt {1+\sqrt{1+2 \sqrt…
