Pits, peaks and passes : a lecture on critical point theory by
Marston Morse(
Visual
)
5 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 38 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 twodimensional manifold. Part 2 turns to higher dimensions, to functions on the 3sphere and applications

Balance scale sorting by
Stewart S Cairns(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1955 in English and held by 5 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.
