Constructions in hyperbolic geometry

Hyperbolic geometry is a non-Euclidean geometry where the first four axioms of Euclidean geometry are kept but the fifth axiom, the parallel postulate, is changed. The fifth axiom of hyperbolic geometry says that given a line L and a point P not on that line, there are at least two lines passing through P that are parallel to L; as in Euclidean geometry, where ancient Greek mathematicians used a compass and idealized ruler for constructions of lengths and other geometric figures, constructions can be made in hyperbolic geometry. There are a couple of models for hyperbolic geometry, which can make performing and visualizing constructions easier. Portions of the hyperbolic plane can be placed onto a pseudosphere and maintain angles and hyperbolic distances, as well as be bent around the pseudosphere and still keep its properties. However, not the entire hyperbolic plane can be placed onto the pseudosphere as a model, only a portion of the hyperbolic plane; the entire hyperbolic plane can be placed on a Poincaré disk and maintain its angles.

However, the lines will turn into circular arcs. In hyperbolic geometry, one can use the standard ruler and compass, used in Euclidean plane geometry. However, there are a variety of rulers developed for hyperbolic constructions. A hypercompass can be used to construct a hypercycle given radius. A horocompass can be used to construct a horocycle through a specific point if the diameter and direction are provided. Both of these require a straight edge, like the standard ruler; when doing constructions in hyperbolic geometry, as long as you are using the proper ruler for the construction, the three compasses can all perform the same constructions. A parallel ruler can be used to parallel to a given ray a. For any two lines, a hyperbolic ruler can be used to construct a line, parallel to the first line and perpendicular to the second. A few notes on the uses of rulers are: A parallel ruler can be used to construct anything that a standard ruler and the three rulers can construct A parallel ruler can act as a ruler in Euclidean geometry A hyperbolic ruler cannot perform Euclidean geometry constructions In hyperbolic geometry, constructions that can be done using any one of the three compasses listed above and the parallel ruler can be done using the hyperbolic ruler Consider a given angle ᗉ IAI' ≠ π/2 radians whose angle bisector is sought.

This results in two different cases: either ᗉ IAI' < π/2 radians or ᗉ IAI' > π/2 radians. For both cases a hyperbolic ruler is needed to construct a line BI' where BI' is perpendicular to AI and parallel to AI'. Construct a line B'I where B'I is perpendicular to AI' and parallel to AI. Case 1: ᗉ IAI'< π/2 radians Let C be the intersection of BI' and B'I. The result of this is that the line AC bisects ᗉ IAI'. Case 2: ᗉ IAI' > π/2 radians This case is further broken down into three sub-cases: Case 2a: IB' intersects I'B Let A' be the intersection of IB' and I'B. AA' is the angle bisector of ᗉ IAI'. Case 2b: IB' is parallel to I'B Construct the line segment BB' and using a hyperbolic ruler, construct the line OI" such that OI" is perpendicular to BB' and parallel to B'I". Line OA is the angle bisector for ᗉ IAI'. Case 2c: IB' is ultraparallel to I'B. Using the ultraparallel theorem, construct the common perpendicular of IB' and I'B, CC'. Let the intersection of CB" and BC' be D; as a result, AD will be the angle bisector of ᗉ BDB'.

We find that the line through OD is the angle bisector of ᗉ IAI'. We consider the problem of finding a line parallel to two given lines, a and a'. There are three cases: a and a' intersect at a point O, a and a' are parallel to each other, a and a' are ultraparallel to each other. Case 1: a and a' intersect at a point O, Bisect one of the angles made by these two lines and name the angle bisector b. Using a hyperbolic ruler, construct a line c such that c is perpendicular to b and parallel to a; as a result, c is parallel to a', making c the common parallel to lines a and a'. Case 2: a and a' are parallel to each other Using a hyperbolic ruler, construct AI' such that AI' is parallel to a' and perpendicular to a. Construct another line A'I such that A'I is parallel to a and perpendicular to a'. Let the intersection of AI' and A'I be B; because ᗉ IBI' > π/2 radians, the case now plays out like case 1, allowing construction of the common parallel to BI and BI'. Case 3: a and a' are ultraparallel to each other Using a hyperbolic ruler, construct BI' such that BI' is perpendicular to a and parallel to a' and construct a line B'I such that B'I is perpendicular to a' and parallel to a in a way that puts BI' and B'I on the same side of the common perpendicular to a and a', which can be found using the ultraparallel theorem.

Let the intersection of BI' and B'I be C. ᗉ ICI' ≠ π/2 radians, which allows you to finish the construction like the other two cases. Suppose you have a line a and a point A on thtat line that you want to construct a line perpendicular to a and through A. Let a' be a line through A where a and a' are two distinct lines. You will have one of two cases. Case 1: a is perpendicular to a' In this case, we have the line perpendicular to a through A. Case 2: a and a' are not perpendicular to each other Using a hyperbolic ruler, construct a line BI such that BI is perpendicular to a and parallel to a'. Construct a line CI' such that CI' is perpendicular to a and parallel to a' but in the opposite direction of BI. Now draw a line II" so that II" is the common parallel to BI and I'C; the ultraparallel theorem now allows us to create the common perpendicular to II" and a because these two lines are ultraparallel.

Andhra Pradesh Police

The Andhra Pradesh Police Department is the official law enforcement agency of the state of Andhra Pradesh, India. Public order and police being a state subject in India, the police force is headed by the Director general of police, Damodar Gautam Sawang; the Madras Act XXIV of 1859 which marked the beginning of the Madras Police and shortly the Police Act of 1861 instituted the system of police which forms the foundation of modern-day police in India. The "Ceded Areas" of Andhra, as they were popularly known, continued as a part of the Madras Police and it was only in October 1953, after the birth of a separate Andhra State, that the Andhra State Police gained individual existence. With the formation of the Andhra Pradesh on 1 November 1956 integrating the Telugu areas of the erstwhile Hyderabad state with the Andhra State, the modern day Andhra Pradesh Police came into existence. After the bifurcation of the state in 2014, the police force once again bifurcated; this time, it was divided into Telangana Police.

The Andhra Pradesh State Police Recruitment Board is responsible for recruitment. The board is releases recruitment notification time to time and conducts written examinations, physical tests, medical tests, interviews for selecting aplicants; the Andhra Pradesh and Telangana Police designates the following ranks Officers Director General of Police Additional Director General of Police Inspector General of Police Deputy Inspector General of Police Senior Superintendent of Police Superintendent of Police Additional Superintendent of Police Assistant SP or Deputy SPSub-ordinates Inspector of Police Sub-Inspector of Police Assistant Police Sub Inspector Head Police Constable Senior Police Constable Police Constable Each police district is either coterminous with the Revenue district, or is located within a number of revenue districts. It is headed by a District commissioner of Police; each district comprises several circles and Police Stations. Each Sub-Division is headed by a Police officer of the rank Deputy Superintendent of Police or an Additional Superintendent of Police.

The officer who heads a Sub-Division is known as S. D. P. O. Resp. Sub Divisional Police Officer. A Circle comprises several Police Stations. An Inspector of Police who heads a police circle is the Circle Inspector of Police or CI. A Police Station is headed by an Inspector. A Police Station is the basic unit of policing, responsible for prevention and detection of crime, maintenance of public order, enforcing law in general as well as for performing protection duties and making security arrangements for the constitutional authorities, government functionaries, representatives of the public in different legislative bodies and local self governments, public figures etc. A Police Commissionerate is a law enforcement body in the urban parts of the state; the commissionerate is headed by a Commissioner of Police. Vijayawada City Police and Visakhapatnam City Police are the local law enforcement agencies for the cities of Vijayawada and Visakhapatnam respectively; the Guntur Urban Police is being planned to be upgraded as Guntur Police Commissionerate.

BOAC Flight 783

On 2 May 1953, BOAC Flight 783, a de Havilland Comet jetliner registered G-ALYV and operated by British Overseas Airways Corporation, broke up mid-air and crashed after encountering a severe squall, shortly after taking off from Calcutta, India. All 43 passengers and crew on board were killed; the crash was followed in less than a year by two more fatal accidents involving structural failure of Comet aircraft: BOAC Flight 781 and South African Airways Flight 201, after which the entire fleet was grounded until extensive redesign of the type was carried out, leading to the development of the Comet 2 version. Flight 783 was a service to London. After a scheduled stopover at Calcutta's Dum Dum Airport, the aircraft departed on 2 May at 16:29 local time on its next segment to Delhi. Six minutes after takeoff, while the jet was climbing to 7,500 ft, radio contact with air traffic control was lost. At around the same time, witnesses on the ground near the village of Jagalgori, around 25 miles north-west of Calcutta, observed the aircraft coming down in flames.

Severe rain and thunderstorms were present in the area. The wreckage of G-ALYV was found strewn along a 5-mile track, with the main parts still on fire. There were no survivors; the 43 people on board were 6 crew members and 37 passengers of British, Australian and Filipino nationalities. Among the victims were Australian politician Trevor Oldham and his wife; the subsequent investigation found that, after encountering a squall, the aircraft "suffered structural failure in the air which caused fire." The probable cause of the failure was reported as "overstressing which resulted from either: severe gusts encountered in the thundersquall, or overcontrolling or loss of control by the pilot when flying through the thunderstorm."The investigators recommended "to consider if any modification to the structure of the Comet is necessary."
