Pits, peaks and passes a lecture on critical point theory ( Visual )
4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Part 1, Professor Marston Morse, using as examples island peaks, pits and passes, analyzes the critical points of a function defined on an orientable two-dimensional manifold. Part 2 turns to higher dimensions, to functions on the 3-sphere and applications

Balance scale sorting by Stewart S Cairns ( Book )
1 edition published in 1955 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Given (1) a set W of n objects, indistinguishable save that the members of a subset H of h objects are slightly heavier than the rest (2) a balance scale, one seeks weighing programs minimizing either (Problem M(n, h)) the maximum number of weighings which may be required to cull out H or (Problem E(n, h)) the expected number of such weighings. Problem M(n,1) is a familiar puzzle. Problem E(n,1) was solved under various hypotheses. Problem M(n,2) was partially solved. Some aspects of it require further investigation. The paper could be used as a basis for more research on M(n, h) and E(n, h) in general. Some of the techniques involve manipulations of series which may be applicable to other combinatorial problems.

Pits, peaks, and passes a lecture on critical point theory by Marston Morse ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In this two-part lecture, Marston Morse analyzes the critical point of a function defined on a two-dimensional manifold. He then goes on to higher dimensions, functions on the 3-sphere, and applications. Video includes an interview with Professor Morse
