In social gathering of the 2009 foreign 12 months of Astronomy, this factor of the Nexus community magazine is dedicated to relationships among astronomy, arithmetic and structure. old cultures seemed to the heavens so as to establish undying ideas for his or her personal creations. wisdom won in astronomy was once reworked into tradition via structure and layout. Papers during this factor examine how astronomy stimulated structure and concrete design.

Theorems and their proofs lie on the middle of arithmetic. In conversing of the basically aesthetic characteristics of theorems and proofs, G. H. Hardy wrote that during attractive proofs 'there is a really excessive measure of unexpectedness, mixed with inevitability and economy'. captivating Proofs offers a suite of exceptional proofs in easy arithmetic which are particularly based, choked with ingenuity, and succinct.

4ƍ. It is certain that such a high degree of accuracy could only be obtained with careful observation of the motion of bright stars, probably circumpolar. However, when the data are plotted in a comprehensive graph with respect to time, they do not distribute in a random way inside an error strip, as it would be the case in absence of a time-dependent systematic error. Instead, with the exception of Giza 2, they distribute on an inclined straight line (fig. 7). It is therefore clear that the method used by the builders to trace the sides of the pyramids was affected by a time-dependent source of error, which can of course be identified with the phenomenon of the precessional motion of the earth’s axis.
