Structural patterns and proportions in Vergil's Aeneid, a study in mathematical composition by George E Duckworth( Book )
22 editions published between 1962 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 601 libraries worldwide
As a result of intensive research and study in the poetry of Vergil, George Duckworth has made a remarkable find: Vergil, as well as other poets of his century, deliberately used the Golden Mean ratio to give mathematical symmetry to the structure of his poetry. The author gives a full and critical account of the scholarship, which up to now has been devoted to the construction of the Aeneid. In turn, he traces the Golden Mean ratio famous in mathematics, art, and architecture everywhere in the main divisions and subdivisions, in the short speeches, and in the long narrative units of the Aeneid. Duckworth proves with his data that consecutive units of the epic are proportionate to one another in the ratio .618. With the longer and shorter passages denoted as M (major) and m (minor), the exact ratio is: m/M = M/(M + m) = 1/2 (v5 - 1) = .618, being achieved most frequently by the Fibonacci series in which each number is the sum of the two preceding numbers. This extraordinary book provides a new awareness of the marvelous structure of Vergil's poetry. It is an essential text for resolving the disputed passages in Vergil. George Duckworth has pioneered a structural analysis that will not only make obsolete much Vergilian criticism but will, in addition, serve as a basis for future research. -- Amazon.com

Three comedies by Titus Maccius Plautus( Book )
2 editions published between 1940 and 1979 in Latin and English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
The special genius of the Roman comic poet Plautus is the wedding of native Italian farce with the mature and polished constructions of Greek comedy. The three plays translated in this book all contain that almost inevitable kernel of Greek comic plot: the love affair. But they have little else in common. In the first, a self-inflating soldier tries to live up to his image of himself as a lover. In the second, a beautiful maiden is rescued from an evil pimp. And in the third, an ill-starred husband fancies himself in love with his wife's young housemaid. Clever, or at least ambitious, slaves tend to move the action, in which the rudeness of farce merges with exuberant wit, satire, and parody
Model astronaut radiation dose distribution analysis by R. E Fortney( Book )
3 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Radiation tolerance levels vary for the diffenent vital body organs and, therefore, the radiation dose distribution in an astronaut may be critical in future space endeavors. This study was initiated to determine analytically the dose distribution inside a model astronaut. The basis of the mathematical formulation for determining this distribution is presented in this report. Particles of the ambient environment were assumed to impinge isotropically on the APOLLO Command Module (CM). The radiation was attenuated through a typical vehicle wall thickness and mean dose rates at various depths in a model astronaut were calculated. Four depths were investigated, each having approximately 175 points at which the dose was calculated. Two spectra were considered one for Van Allen protons and the other representing solar flare protons. The results are presented in graphical form, giving dose versus depth in the model astronaut.
