BLAKESLEE (Associated Press Leased Wre) pAMBRIDOB, Mass., Sept. 1.—A vJ branch of higher mathematics, which aalllleo inspired with a trick question, was brought down to everyday life at a meeting of the Mathematical Association of America today. Qalllleo asked—what Is the line between two points, one higher than the other, but not directly above, down which a particle will roll in the shortest time from tho higher to the lower point? The problem was solved ' In 1696 by John Bernoulli, Swiss mathematician. Tho ansWer Is not a straight line, although that Is the shortest distance. Tho fall is fastest down a curved line, steep at the top and then flattening somewhat. : With tho solution Bernoulli developed a new branch of mathematics, the calculus of variations. Recently In the United States this type of mathematics has developed fap- Idly. Two mathematicians, Prof. Edward Constantln Caratheodory, of the - University of Munich and Prof. .Q. A. Bliss, of the University of Chicago, told of some uses. The calculus of variations describes tho form of curves, simple example is the parabola made by a baseball thrown from outfield to home plate, Mathematics is not used for baseballs but for Intricate curves that cannot be measured so exactly. One oit these is the lenses of ire- cent cameras. Until a .few years tgo, Professor Caratheodory said, the calculus of variations was considered as higher mathematics hot applicable to lenses. But when photographic progress required fast enses for night work tho once hhjh- jrow mathematics came, into use. Another use Is to find the shortest path over mountains, or any irregular, curving surface. Calculus of variations is used In celestial mechanics to calculate tho paths of planets, in ballistics for courses of projectiles,, in the laws of electricity, in atomic movements, and in the Hamilton principle In mechanics, which determines tho paths particles take in a mechanical system. Prof. Edward Kasner of Columbia University reported mathematical discovery of a case In which two parts are not equal to the whole, but their sum Is larger than 'the whole. This angles. occurs, ho said, In horn These are the angles made by curved lines which touch but do not intersect. If three such curves start from a single point, he ex* plained, the angle enclosed by the two outer lines la usually smaller than tho sum of tho two angles formed by the three lines.
