An elliptical constant

  1. Jul 23, 2005 #1
    There is a constant for ellipses, as Pi is a constant for circles, such that the relationship of every structural part, to one another, for any ellipse, is constant.

    This relationship of the structural parts of an ellipse is the crux, with relativity, of triquametric motion that underlies the motion of all phenomena. And, which logically rationalizes the enigmas of standard paradigms, including number theory, to reconcile with observation.

    Ooh boy, this one could be interesting...

    This touches upon real fundamentals

    You have no idea . . .

    This touches upon the real fundamentals of science, theolgy, and philosophy.

    You might see the last two posts (Hurkyl/Brunardot) at NUMBER THEORY: Thread - "Is -1 a prime number?"

    If this is going to be based entirely upon that post, this is sufficient reason to close this thread as it stands right now. At this point there is no mathematical content to this thread, brunardot, and its continued existence in this section is a result of patience.

    If you do not make a mathematical point in your next post, this thread will be moved or closed.

    Looks like someone's got number theory confused with numerology.

    Would you like to write something that makes some mathematical sense?

    Yes, it's pi. If an ellipse has axes of length a and b, then the area is pi*a*b. The onlyh constant that is as closely associated with ellipses as pi is with circles is pi itself!

    So much for Intellectual Inquiry

    What has happened to intellectual inquiry in the academic disciplines?

    Where are specific questions; rather than spurious threats?

    Does Matt Grime have it wrong?

    Let’s get to some “mathematical content.” I select the Fibonacci numbers. And as for making a point: I submit that the perigee, soliton (half the focal lengthl), vector (line from the end of the major diameter to the end of the minor diameter), and apogee are always a Fibonacci-like sequence for any ellipse; and, when any ellipse is defined by the elliptical constant, if the perigee is an integer all of the above parts are integers. And when the ellipse is a circle (a special ellipse) the perigee, soliton, vector, and apogee begin the revised Fibonacci sequence, which is a sequence of a more general unlimited series.

    The Fibonacci sequence regardless of beginning with zero or one is a portion of a sequence of said general series.

    Mathematical sense

    My statements are always mathematically provable.

    As to Pi

    The elliptical constant is not Pi.

    It is an integer of the first order.

    it is alive and well

    and this is a spruios therad

    what wrong?

    for why? i select miss norway 1975....

    perigee? closest point in an orbit?

    soliton? a wave?

    fibonacci like? undefined terms, unsubastantiated claims, what more is there to say?

    hmm, again no mathematical content. it may have mathematical words in it but that doesn't mean anything.
