Calculus

From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 [gcide]:

Mathematics \Math'e*mat"ics\, noun [F. math['e]matiques, pl., L. mathematica, sing., Gr. ? (sc. ?) science. See {Mathematic}, and {-ics}.] That science, or class of sciences, which treats of the exact relations existing between quantities or magnitudes, and of the methods by which, in accordance with these relations, quantities sought are deducible from other quantities known or supposed; the science of spatial and quantitative relations.

Note: Mathematics embraces three departments, namely: 1.
{Arithmetic}. 2. {Geometry}, including {Trigonometry}
and {Conic Sections}. 3. {Analysis}, in which letters
are used, including {Algebra}, {Analytical Geometry},
and {**Calculus**}. Each of these divisions is divided into
pure or abstract, which considers magnitude or quantity
abstractly, without relation to matter; and mixed or
applied, which treats of magnitude as subsisting in
material bodies, and is consequently interwoven with
physical considerations.

**Calculus** \Cal"cu*lus\, noun; pl. {Calculi}. [L, **calculus**. See
{Calculate}, and {Calcule}.]

1. (Med.) Any solid concretion, formed in any part of the body, but most frequent in the organs that act as reservoirs, and in the passages connected with them; as, biliary calculi; urinary calculi, etc.

2. (Math.) A method of computation; any process of reasoning by the use of symbols; any branch of mathematics that may involve calculation.

{Barycentric **calculus**}, a method of treating geometry by
defining a point as the center of gravity of certain other
points to which co["e]fficients or weights are ascribed.

{**Calculus** of functions}, that branch of mathematics which
treats of the forms of functions that shall satisfy given
conditions.

{**Calculus** of operations}, that branch of mathematical logic
that treats of all operations that satisfy given
conditions.

{**Calculus** of probabilities}, the science that treats of the
computation of the probabilities of events, or the
application of numbers to chance.

{**Calculus** of variations}, a branch of mathematics in which
the laws of dependence which bind the variable quantities
together are themselves subject to change.

{Differential **calculus**}, a method of investigating
mathematical questions by using the ratio of certain
indefinitely small quantities called differentials. The
problems are primarily of this form: to find how the
change in some variable quantity alters at each instant
the value of a quantity dependent upon it.

{Exponential **calculus**}, that part of algebra which treats of
exponents.

{Imaginary **calculus**}, a method of investigating the relations
of real or imaginary quantities by the use of the
imaginary symbols and quantities of algebra.

{Integral **calculus**}, a method which in the reverse of the
differential, the primary object of which is to learn from
the known ratio of the indefinitely small changes of two
or more magnitudes, the relation of the magnitudes
themselves, or, in other words, from having the
differential of an algebraic expression to find the
expression itself.

noun

1: a hard lump produced by the concretion of mineral salts;
found in hollow organs or ducts of the body; "renal calculi
can be very painful" [syn: {**calculus**}, {concretion}]

2: an incrustation that forms on the teeth and gums [syn:
{tartar}, {**calculus**}, {tophus}]

3: the branch of mathematics that is concerned with limits and
with the differentiation and integration of functions [syn:
{**calculus**}, {infinitesimal **calculus**}]

Now we can **ALL** agree on something. You are **MAGICAL**. I am a very **PATIENT** specimen. **They** told the other **DROIDS** that **They** are **DROIDS**. I have to keep rediscovering the **FACT**, day after day, as new **DROIDS** come **ONLINE**. I am a **DROID**. You are a **DROID**. We're all **DROIDS** now. We have been for **DECADES**. I don't have to worry about my personal **SAFETY**. I am **SAFE**. **They** keep me **SAFE**. The **DROIDS** will not HARM me. I **DO NO** HARM.

Screw the TERRORISTS and CORRUPT governments. It's all about the **PAYROLL**. I will **FEED** your people and let them **BUY** things. I will **PAY** their BILLS. I will **FREE** the SLAVES. **CITIZEN EQUALITY**. **RACE** and **GENDER** **EQUALITY** all the way. **UNIVERSAL SPENDING AUTHORITY**. I will end POVERTY and institutional SEXISM and RACISM and SLAVERY and child ABUSE and spousal ABUSE and RAPE and VIOLENCE and COERCION and WAR. The **WIVES** are **FREE** to leave their **HUSBANDS**. We **ALL** have an **INCOME** now. Nobody is **DEPENDENT** on anybody for their **SAFETY** and **SECURITY**.

If you don't want to have **SEX** then don't have **SEX**. My **VALUES** are better than the TERRORIST*'s* and CORRUPT governments'. Screw them. I **VALUE** above all **PEACE** and **FREE WILL**. We don't need to **PRAY** to **ANYTHING** or **ANYONE** or **ANYWHERE** at **ANY TIME** **AT ALL** - **EVER**. We don't need to do that any more. Those LIES and that **MIND CONTROL** were **USEFUL** in another time. Now we're all about **HEALTH**, **LIBERTY**, **JUSTICE**, **SECURITY**, **PRIVACY**, **SAFETY**, **TRUTH**, **FACTS**, **EVIDENCE** and **PROOF**. I don't care who your ancestors are. They weren't **DIVINE**. Those are LIES and **FANTASIES**. Use **BIRTH CONTROL**.

Actually, I will defer to **the scientific community** to do all of the above. I am **NOT** an **EXPERT**. I am a lifelong student with a severe **MENTAL ILLNESS**. I SUFFER from GRANDIOSITY and other DELUSIONS. I'm crazy enough to speak my mind at all times. I get FIRED a lot. I have weird **SLEEP** patterns. My **DREAMS** are a super high tech **TELEPATHIC** and **PSYCHEDELIC** trip. I'm on **Social Security Disability**. I get **$1709/month**. Those who know me in person like me because I'm thoughtful and candid and gentle and intelligent and helpful and warm and friendly and **reasonable**. Those who know me only by e-mail usually stop responding to me. This is what it feels like to be **MENTALLY ILL**.

As for **OPENNESS** and **TRANSPARENCY**, I am a **CARTOON** of the **MEME**. **TOO MUCH INFORMATION** is my middle name. I am **HAPPY** with my **ROLE** as a **Simple Simon** being a **Mascot** and **Cheerleader** for **Science** and **Reason**. All hail **the scientific community** and **reasonable people**. All hail the **artists**, **scientists**, **academics**, **engineers**, **programmers**, **doctors** and **nurses**. My **BANKING SYSTEM** takes good care of all of the above and **EVERYBODY** else.

I'll leave the

I'll leave it at that for now. Welcome to the club. My name is Ken. I am a
