James Gregory is described as ‘the greatest scientist associated it St. Andrews’. Gregory contributed many diverse concepts and helped spread the new teachings of his time. CHILDHOOD & EDUCATION James Gregory was born in a small town just outside of Aberdeen, called Drm oak, Scotland. When he was little James suffered from quartan fever for a year and a half.

Because of the fever he was afflicted with fevers in 72 hour intervals. His mother introduced basic math and geometry at a very young age. Gregory was home schooled untill his father, a wealthy minister, died when James was about 13 years old. After his father died, his older brother, David, sent him to grammar school in Aberdeen. After finishing grammar school James attended Maris chal College, Aberdeen University. MAJOR ACCOMPLISHMENTS Shortly after college he began to study optics and the construction of telescopes, and wrote his first book, Optica Promota ^1.

In 1663 James went to London where he published Optica Promota, which discussed topics such as lenses, mirrors, reflection and refraction, para lax and transits. Optica Promota also discussed Gregory’s most famous invention, the reflective telescope. It later became known and the Gregorian Telescope. However, at the time the telescope was only discussed because the mirror polishers could not polish the mirrors properly, so it was never actually made untill after Gregory’s death. He last invented the burning mirror. In 1664 James went to Pud a, Italy and studied under Stefano d egli Angeli in geometry, mechanics, and astronomy.

### The Essay on Analysis Of Dubliner By James Joyce

Analysis of Dubliner by James Joyce Abstract This four-page paper examines and discusses James Joyce constant use of the themes of family dynamics, marriage and economic realities in histhe collection of fifteen short stories, Dubliners, published in 1907--- Dubliners. The paper references many of the short stories, which through symbolism conveys Joyces central leitmotif that realistically paints ...

While he was there, the published two more works Vera et hyperbola e in which James showed how to compute logarithms by finding the areas of inscribed parallelograms between a hyperbola and its asymptotes, thus leading to the term ‘hyperbolic logarithms’ in 1667. ^2 And Geometrize para universal is where he attempted to prove that the (little shape thingy that i cant type… looks like a n mixed with pi) and e are, unfortunately, his arguments contained a subtle error which was published in 1668, right before he left Italy for London. In 1668, he was elected as a member of the Royal Society of London.

James was appointed the chair professor of mathematics at the University of St. Andrews in 1669 where he greatly improved the mathematics department. He bought instruments such as clocks, astrolabes, and an armillary s pere, he also planned an observatory. However, the masters of the university began to dislike Gregory’s new teachings. Controversy rocked the mathematics department as they kept students from attending his classes and lectures, and withholding his pay. Gregory left St.

Andrews late in 1643. LATER LIFE In 1674, James was invited to teach at Edinghburgh University. He accepted and was the first person to hold Chair of Mathematics and also was appointed professor of mathematics of that year. Unfortunatly, he died before he could begin his teaching career at Edinburgh of a stroke while observing Jupiter and its moons though one of his telescopes with some of his students. The stroke blinded him and he died a few days later.
