Jari Eloranta, Appalachian State University Introduction Determining adequate levels of military spending and sustaining the burden of conflicts have been among key fiscal problems in history. Ancient societies were usually less complicated in terms of the administrative, fiscal, technological, and material demands of warfare.
History[ edit ] Fibonacci patterns occur widely in plant structures, including this cone of queen sago, Cycas circinalis Early Greek philosophers attempted to explain order in natureanticipating modern concepts.
Thus, a flower may be roughly circular, but it is never a perfect mathematical circle. The discourse's central chapter features examples and observations of the quincunx in botany.
His description of phyllotaxis and the Fibonacci sequencethe mathematical relationships in the spiral growth patterns of plants, is classic. He showed that simple equations could describe all the apparently complex spiral growth patterns of animal horns and mollusc shells.
He studied soap films intensively, formulating Plateau's laws which describe the structures formed by films in foams. These activator-inhibitor mechanisms can, Turing suggested, generate patterns dubbed " Turing patterns " of stripes and spots in animals, and contribute to the spiral patterns seen in plant phyllotaxis.
For example, L-systems form convincing models of different patterns of tree growth. The laws of physics apply the abstractions of mathematics to the real world, often as if it were perfect. For example, a crystal is perfect when it has no structural defects such as dislocations and is fully symmetric.
Exact mathematical perfection can only approximate real objects. In biologynatural selection can cause the development of patterns in living things for several reasons, including camouflage sexual selection and different kinds of signalling, including mimicry  and cleaning symbiosis.
Radial patterns of colours and stripes, some visible only in ultraviolet light serve as nectar guides that can be seen at a distance. Symmetry in biologyFloral symmetryand Crystal symmetry Symmetry is pervasive in living things.
Animals mainly have bilateral or mirror symmetryas do the leaves of plants and some flowers such as orchids. Fivefold symmetry is found in the echinodermsthe group that includes starfishsea urchinsand sea lilies. Radial symmetry suits organisms like sea anemones whose adults do not move: But animals that move in one direction necessarily have upper and lower sides, head and tail ends, and therefore a left and a right.
The head becomes specialised with a mouth and sense organs cephalisationand the body becomes bilaterally symmetric though internal organs need not be.
Early echinoderms were bilaterally symmetrical, as their larvae still are. Sumrall and Wray argue that the loss of the old symmetry had both developmental and ecological causes.Military Spending Patterns in History.
