Book Overview

Outlines methods and knowledge for self-taught language acquisition. Ex­clu­sive­ly free and freely and directly accessible content, web dictionaries and free software are discussed. In addition, the possibilities of extended lan­guage study with native speakers are presented, for language tandems lo­cal­ly and via the internet. All articles include extensive link lists and training rec­om­men­da­tions for further study of the topics covered.

Cryptographic checksums (electronic fingerprints) are used to ensure the tech­nical and content integrity of your documents. In addition, cryptographic sign­ing with OpenPGP can provide your documents, messages, and e-mails with verifiable personal proof of authenticity. If you then publish the public key cer­tifi­cate on your official website, for example, every reader and cor­re­spond­ence partner can have a signature verification performed fully automatically in the background, e.g. via their e-mail program.

This increases protection against identity misuse and identity theft; any read­er can then verify whether a message actually originates from you. The Open­PGP encryption standard also allows you to send your messages and docu­ments (e.g. manuscripts, negotiation correspondence, draft contracts) en­crypted.

Word processing, writing science literature, book creation, graphical desktop pub­lish­ing, web PDF documents, e-book writing, and a mini-introduction to cre­ating web pages.

Typesetting programs offer extremely extensive design possibilities, the ef­fec­tive use of which requires a longer training period. Free software that is stable over the long term proves to be advantageous here, since changes to op­er­at­ing and functional concepts occur as part of a natural development, in con­trast to proprietary software where a continuous new purchase of products and operating manuals is often artificially forced. (Operating system) platform in­de­pend­ence as well as the mastery of a truly open document format suit­able for archiving are further central criteria, especially for use in hetero­geneous company computer networks and in the administration area. High-quali­ty typesetting is possible even with old and very old computers, thanks to spe­cial­ized lightweight free operating systems and programs.

This overview introduces you to widely used free typesetting systems and ba­sic document types. Extensive link lists lead to further, equally powerful free pro­gram alternatives.

Introduction to the Indirect Proof:
“Proof of the Irrationality of the Square Root of 2

Mathematical proofs are used to prove the cor­rect­ness of formulas and as­sumed facts. Sev­er­al basic procedures and ways of veri­fy­ing mathematical cor­rect­ness are in use, all of which follow a fixed scheme.

For the proof of the irrationality of the square root of 2 dif­fer­ent proofs exist. This article explains the indirect proof vari­ant in detail and introduces one of the possible short spell­ings in mathematical notation. Exercises with solutions con­soli­date what has been learned. 13 pages:   A4  •  A4 duplex  •  US-Let­ter  •  US-Letter duplex
