In English, many things are named after a particular country – but have you ever wondered what those things are called in those countries?
- Modern scholarship has not seriously affected his stature in the fields of mathematics, dynamics, celestial mechanics, astronomy, optics, natural philosophy, or cosmology.
- Seurat proposed making art based upon a scientific understanding of optics and color.
- The easiest way to describe light rays and light cones is through geometric optics.
- He convinced himself of a conspiracy against him, and gave up the study of optics, refusing to correspond with anyone about it.
- This work is an encyclopaedia of mathematics, astronomy, optics and music.
- Only after Galileo had become famous through his discoveries in the area of mechanics, dynamics and optics, did he admit his Copernican position in print.
- Other courses Whittaker taught at Cambridge included astronomy, geometrical optics, and electricity and magnetism.
- In applied mathematics he studied optics, electricity, telegraphy, capillarity, elasticity, thermodynamics, potential theory, quantum theory, theory of relativity and cosmology.
- Gregory began to study optics and the construction of telescopes.
- In 1824 David Brewster, famous for his work in optics, was the first author to use the term ‘pyroelectricity.’
- The exhibits cover topics relating to energy, electricity, mechanics, optics, sound, light, and even nuclear energy and astronomy.
- Regrettably, fluid dynamics is not well covered in standard physics curricula, but the ideas have natural connections to basic conservation laws, optics, and quantum mechanics.
- From 1491 to 1494, Copernicus studied mathematics and optics at Krakow University.
- Franck called in his graduate student, Wilhelm Hanle, who worked in physical optics, and asked if he could understand Wood's findings.
- With the same energy with which he approached everything, Rayleigh developed laboratory courses in heat, electricity and magnetism, properties of matter, optics, and acoustics.
- He published on optics, quantum mechanics, and relativity.
- In optics he experimented with mirrors and with lenses.
- But before I do so, there is one further unresolved historical issue to be explored: from whom might Vermeer have learned about optics and lenses?
- From a physics point of view we would also like to leave geometric optics behind and use the wave nature of light rays instead.
- Additional breadth in the curriculum comes from required courses in electronics, optics, an elective specialty course - solid state, for instance - and a senior thesis.
English has borrowed many of the following foreign expressions of parting, so you’ve probably encountered some of these ways to say goodbye in other languages.
