"William E. Emba"|
"White Hart" story, Purvis tells about an experimental
physicist who invents a highly successful antinoise generator.
The Fourier analysis underpinning of antinoise is explicitly
But the physicist's mathematical abilities are weak, so he makes
one costly mistake. This weakness is gauged rather accurately:
Purvis states he is able to integrate e^x, but not x.e^x.
