2.9 Repeated measurements

Scientists are always concerned with the reliability and precision of their data, and this is the prime reason for them to repeat measurements many times. Consider the photograph shown in Figure 6, which is the result of X-ray diffraction (see Box 5). To determine the atomic structure of the substance that produced this pattern, it would be necessary to measure the diameters of the fuzzy rings. At one time, this would probably have been done with an instrument called a travelling microscope;

4.6.1 Remarks

  1. We already know that the characteristic numbers are topological invariants, that is, any two homeomorphic surfaces have the same values for the characteristic numbers. Thus it is solely the converse, namely if two surfaces have the same values for the characteristic numbers then they are homeomorphic, that we have to prove.

3.4 A note on suspense

By raising various expectations in the reader's mind, a writer can create an atmosphere of suspense – the desire to turn the page and find out what happens next. How much will the story follow the reader's expectations, how much will it confound them? In this way, suspense is

3.3 Parenthood

The deeply embedded inequalities of marriage were also prevalent in parenthood, reflecting the key role of gender in structuring the inequalities found in both. Under common law fathers were given complete control over their children, while mothers had no rights of custody, care or access if the marriage broke down, or even if the husband died. A man could be adulterous or fail to provide for his family without depriving him of his rights. The Poor Laws provided the only legal requirement on
