Excerpt: Forced Oscillations (Simple Spring-Mass System) Recap of Section 1.3 In the previous section, we discussed how adding a damping component (e. g. a dashpot) to an unforced, simple spring-mass system would affect the response of the system. In particular, we learned that adding the dashpot to the system changed the natural frequency of the system from to a new damped natural frequency , and how this change made the response of the system change from a constant sin...

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali

By: Charles Johnston

Introduction: The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali are in themselves exceedingly brief, less than ten pages of large type in the original. Yet they contain the essence of practical wisdom, set forth in admirable order and detail. The theme, if the present interpreter be right, is the great regeneration, the birth of the spiritual from the psychical man: the same theme which Paul so wisely and eloquently set forth in writing to his disciples in Corinth, the theme of all mystics in all lands.

But when the critic deals out to the readers only so much knowledge as may propagate his own contempt of the book, he has undoubtedly immense power to dissuade them from wishing to open it. M...

The processes involved in understanding must operate fast enough so that the robot control system, which moves the robot, does not have to pause in performing its tasks to wait for sensory information. Usually, however, the information supplied does not have to be completely accurate. For example, the position of an object c...
