Born in Chicago in the 1920s, he had an insatiable desire to create things that would help make life easier for people. In his later years, his love of history inspired him to seek techniques to preserve antiquities, saving many treasures. He invented WD 40 while attempting to concoct a formula to displace water , which was causing major problems in Atlas Rockets. Larsen s persistence paid off when he perfected the formula for the water displacer on his 40th try, hence the product name WD 40. A self taught chemist with a background in the paint business, Larsen was just a high school graduate everything he knew he learned by reading books. Much of his collection of antique chemistry books from the 18th and 19th centuries still survives today. When he died he had over a thousand books in his personal library. When Larsen sold WD 40 and Rocket Chemical in the early fifties for a mere 20,000.00 no royalties, no residuals, as he believed he would always be able to invent something better , to Sam Crivello, Gene DeFalco, and two other guys. Larsen went to work for CRC Industries not General Dynamics as their head chemist which would explain why their 5.56 formula is similar to WD 40 . He started his own manufacturing company and consulting firm a few years later outside Philadelphia , and created metal and wood preservation techniques for treasure hunter Mel Fisher , explorer Fred Dickinson of the Santa Maria Foundation, the Smithsonian Institution , the Marine Corps , where he came up with a pellet pack that was very useful ... of the 17th century Swedish ship the Vasa ship Vasa . Larsen also invented a very successful ... more details

Dual norm
Orphan date November 2009 The concept of a dual norm arises in functional analysis , a branch of mathematics. Let X be a Banach space with norm mathematics norm math cdot math . Then the dual space X is the collection of all continuous function continuous linear functional s from X into the base field which is either R or C . If L is such a linear functional, then the dual norm of L is defined by math L sup L x x in X, x leq 1 . math With this norm, the dual space is also a Banach space . For example, if p , q math 1, infty math satisfy math 1 p 1 q 1 math , then the sup p sup and sup q sup norms are dual to each other. In particular the L2 norm Euclidean norm is self dual p q 2 . Similarly, the Matrix norm Schatten p norm on matrices is dual to the Schatten q norm. Category Linear algebra mathanalysis stub ... more details


Gromov norm
In mathematics , the Gromov norm or simplicial volume of a compact oriented n manifold is a norm on the homology theory homology with real coefficients given by minimizing the sum of the absolute values of the coefficients over all singular chains representing a cycle. The Gromov norm of the manifold is the Gromov norm of the fundamental class . It is named after Mikhail Gromov mathematician Mikhail Gromov , who with William Thurston , proved that the Gromov norm of a finite volume hyperbolic manifold hyperbolic n manifold is proportional to the hyperbolic volume. Thurston also used the Gromov norm to prove that hyperbolic volume decreases under hyperbolic Dehn surgery .

Schatten norm
In mathematics , specifically functional analysis , the Robert Schatten Schatten norm or Schatten Von Neumann norm arises as a generalization of p integrability similar to the trace class norm mathematics norm and the Hilbert Schmidt operator Hilbert Schmidt norm. Definition Let math H 1 math , math H 2 math be separable Hilbert spaces, and math T math a linear bounded operator form math H 1 math to math H 2 math . For math p in 1, infty math , define the Schatten p norm of math T math as math T p bigg sum n ge 1 s p n T bigg 1 p math for math s 1 T ge s 2 T ge cdots s n T ge cdots ge 0 math the singular values of math T math , i.e. the eigenvalues of the Hermitian matrix math T sqrt T T math .

An operator which has a finite Schatten norm is called a Schatten class operator and the space of such operators is denoted by math S p H 1,H 2 math . With this norm, math S p H 1,H 2 math is a Banach space, and a Hilbert space for p 2 . Observe that math S p H 1,H 2 subseteq mathcal K H 1,H 2 math , the algebra of compact operator s. This follows from the fact that if the sum is finite the spectrum will be finite or countable with the origin as limit point, and hence a compact operator see compact operator on Hilbert space .

Norm entrepreneur
A norm entrepreneur is someone interested in changing social norms . Cass Sunstein coined the term in his 1996 paper Social Norms and Social Roles . He notes there that existing social conditions can frequently be more fragile than is typically supposed as they depend on social norms to which many may not be strongly allied. Sunstein identifies a category of people, who he calls norm entrepreneurs , who are interested in changing social norms. If they are successful in their endeavors they can produce what he calls norm bandwagons and norm cascades which lead to substantial changes in social norms. ref Sunstein, Cass R. 1996 Social Norms and Social Roles, Columbia Law Review , Vol. 96, No. 4, May, pp. 903 968 ref See also Moral entrepreneur References Reflist Uncategorized date April 2012 ... more details


Asymmetric norm
In mathematics , an asymmetric norm on a vector space is a generalization of the concept of a norm mathematics norm . Definition Let X be a real number real vector space. Then an asymmetric norm on X is a function mathematics function p X R satisfying the following properties non negativity for all x X , p x 0 Positive definite function definiteness for x X , x 0 if and only if p x p &minus x 0 homogeneous function homogeneity for all x X and all &lambda 0, p &lambda x &lambda p x the triangle inequality for all x , y X , p x y p x p y . Examples On the real line R , the function p given by math p x begin cases x , & x leq 0 2 x , & x geq 0 end cases math is an asymmetric norm but not a norm. More generally, given a strictly positive function g S sup n &minus 1 sup R defined on the unit sphere S sup n &minus 1 sup in R sup n sup with respect to the usual Euclidean norm , say , the function p given by math p x g x x x , math is an asymmetric norm on R sup n sup but not necessarily a norm.

Norm form
Unreferenced date December 2009 In mathematics , a norm form is a homogeneous form in n variables constructed from the field norm of a field extension L K of degree n . That is, writing N for the norm mapping to K , and selecting a basis e sub 1 sub , ..., e sub n sub for L as a vector space over K , the form is given by N x sub 1 sub e sub 1 sub ... x sub n sub e sub n sub in variables x sub 1 sub , ..., x sub n sub . In number theory norm forms are studied as Diophantine equation s, where they generalize, for example, the Pell equation . For this application the field K is usually the rational number field, the field L is an algebraic number field , and the basis is taken of some order ring theory order in the ring of integers O sub L sub of L .
