The Vancouver Canucks are a professional ice hockey team based in Vancouver. They compete in the National Hockey League as a member of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference; the Canucks play their home games at Rogers Arena known as General Motors Place, which has an official capacity of 18,910. Travis Green is the head coach and Jim Benning is the general manager; the Canucks joined the league in 1970 as an expansion team along with the Buffalo Sabres. In its NHL history, the team has advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals three times, losing to the New York Islanders in 1982, the New York Rangers in 1994 and the Boston Bruins in 2011, they have won the Presidents' Trophy in back-to-back seasons as the team with the league's best regular season record in the 2010–11 and 2011–12 seasons. They won three division titles as a member of the Smythe Division from 1974 to 1993, seven titles as a member of the Northwest Division from 1998 to 2013; the Canucks, along with fellow expansion team, the Buffalo Sabres, are the two oldest teams to have never won the Stanley Cup.
The Canucks have retired six players' jerseys in their history—Stan Smyl, Trevor Linden, Markus Naslund, Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, Pavel Bure. Smyl has the distinction of being the only Canuck to have his jersey number retired at their former arena, the Pacific Coliseum; the first professional ice hockey team based in Vancouver were the Vancouver Millionaires, formed by Frank and Lester Patrick. Established in 1911, the Millionaires were one of three teams in the new Pacific Coast Hockey Association. To accommodate the Millionaires, the Patrick brothers directed the building of the Denman Arena, known at the time as the world's largest artificial ice rink; the arena was destroyed in a fire in 1936. The Millionaires played for the Stanley Cup five times, winning over the Ottawa Senators in 1915 on home ice, it marked the first time. Absorbed by the Western Canada Hockey League in 1924, the team continued operations until folding at the end of the 1925–26 WHL season. From 1926 to 1970, Vancouver was home to only minor league teams.
Most notably the present-day Canucks' minor league predecessor played from 1945 to 1970 in the Pacific Coast Hockey League and the Western Hockey League. With the intention of attracting an NHL franchise, Vancouver began the construction of a new modern arena, the Pacific Coliseum, in 1966; the WHL's Canucks were playing in a small arena at the time, the Vancouver Forum, situated on the same Pacific National Exhibition grounds as the Coliseum. Meanwhile, a Vancouver group led by WHL Canucks owner and former Vancouver mayor Fred Hume made a bid to be one of the six teams due to join the league in 1967, but the NHL rejected their application. Bid leader Cyrus McLean called the denial a "cooked-up deal", referring to several biases that factored against them. Speculation long abounded afterwards that the bid was hindered by Toronto Maple Leafs president Stafford Smythe. Additionally, along with the Montreal Canadiens, Smythe purportedly did not wish to split Canadian Broadcasting Corporation hockey revenues three ways rather than two.
There were reports at the time, that the group had made a weak proposal in expectation that Vancouver was a lock for one of the new franchises. Less than a year the Oakland Seals were in financial difficulty and having trouble drawing fans. An apparent deal was in place to move the team to Vancouver, but the NHL did not want to see one of their franchises from the expansion of 1967 move so and vetoed the deal. In exchange for avoiding a lawsuit, the NHL promised Vancouver would get a team in the next expansion round. Another group, headed by Minnesota entrepreneur Tom Scallen, made a new presentation and was awarded an expansion franchise for the price of $6 million; the new ownership group purchased the WHL Canucks, brought the team into the league with the Buffalo Sabres as expansion teams for the 1970–71 season. In preparation for joining the NHL, the WHL Canucks had brought in players with prior NHL experience. Six of these players would remain with the club for its inaugural NHL season; the rest of the roster was built through an expansion draft.
To fill the Canucks' roster for their inaugural season, the league held an Expansion Draft in the preceding summer. A draft lottery was held on June 9, 1970, determining who between the Canucks and Sabres would get the first selection in the Expansion Draft, as well as the 1970 NHL Amateur Draft. With his first selection in the Expansion Draft, Canucks General Manager Bud Poile chose defenceman Gary Doak. Among the other players chosen by Vancouver were centre Orland Kurtenbach, named the Canucks' first captain, as well as defenceman Pat Quinn, who became the team's general manager and coach in the 1990s. Two days on June 11, 1970, the Canucks made defenceman Dale Tallon their first-ever Amateur Draft selection. Tallon played three seasons with the club before being traded away to the Chicago Black Hawks. By comparison, the Sabres chose centre Gilbert Perreault with the first overall selection they won from the lottery. With the Canucks' roster set, the team played its inaugural game against the Los Angeles Kings on October 9, 1970.
In mathematics, hyperbolic functions are analogs of the ordinary trigonometric functions defined for the hyperbola rather than on the circle: just as the points form a circle with a unit radius, the points form the right half of the equilateral hyperbola. Hyperbolic functions occur in the solutions of many linear differential equations, of some cubic equations, in calculations of angles and distances in hyperbolic geometry, of Laplace's equation in Cartesian coordinates. Laplace's equations are important in many areas of physics, including electromagnetic theory, heat transfer, fluid dynamics, special relativity; the basic hyperbolic functions are: hyperbolic sine "sinh", hyperbolic cosine "cosh",from which are derived: hyperbolic tangent "tanh", hyperbolic cosecant "csch" or "cosech" hyperbolic secant "sech", hyperbolic cotangent "coth",corresponding to the derived trigonometric functions. The inverse hyperbolic functions are: area hyperbolic sine "arsinh" and so on; the hyperbolic functions take.
The size of a hyperbolic angle is twice the area of its hyperbolic sector. The hyperbolic functions may be defined in terms of the legs of a right triangle covering this sector. In complex analysis, the hyperbolic functions arise as the imaginary parts of cosine; the hyperbolic sine and the hyperbolic cosine are entire functions. As a result, the other hyperbolic functions are meromorphic in the whole complex plane. By Lindemann–Weierstrass theorem, the hyperbolic functions have a transcendental value for every non-zero algebraic value of the argument. Hyperbolic functions were introduced in the 1760s independently by Vincenzo Riccati and Johann Heinrich Lambert. Riccati used Sc. and Cc. to refer to circular functions and Sh. and Ch. to refer to hyperbolic functions. Lambert altered the abbreviations to those used today; the abbreviations sh, ch, th, cth are currently used, depending on personal preference. There are various equivalent ways. In terms of the exponential function: Hyperbolic sine: the odd part of the exponential function, sinh x = e x − e − x 2 = e 2 x − 1 2 e x = 1 − e − 2 x 2 e − x.
Hyperbolic cosine: the part of the exponential function, cosh x = e x + e − x 2 = e 2 x + 1 2 e x = 1 + e − 2 x 2 e − x. Hyperbolic tangent: tanh x = sinh x cosh x = e x − e − x e x + e − x = e 2 x − 1 e 2 x + 1 Hyperbolic cotangent: for x ≠ 0, coth x = cosh x sinh x = e x + e − x e x − e − x = e 2 x + 1 e 2 x − 1 Hyperbolic secant: sech x = 1 cosh x = 2 e x + e − x = 2 e x e 2 x + 1 Hyperbolic cosecant: for x ≠ 0, csch x = 1 sinh x = 2 e x − e − x
Amadeus Paulussen is a Swiss music producer. From age 6 to 13 he learned and played the violin at the Rudolf Steiner School in Pratteln and visited the violin lessons at the Musikschule Basel. At the age of 13, Amadeus came in contact with the emerging Techno movement in Basel, through his sister. To satisfy his newly developed interest in electronic music, he learned to play the keyboard at the Musikhaus & Musikschule Bonvicini in Basel, as an introduction to the use of synthesizers and studio technology. At that time, he began to build a small pre- production studio in the basement of his family home, his former equipment included, among others, an Akai S1100, a Korg Prophecy, a Roland JV-90, a Yamaha QS-300 and some analog classics, e.g. a Roland TB-303 or Roland JX-3P. Starting in 1996, he began working on first contracts for events and multimedia applications, amongst others, through the company of his father W. P. P. Expo & event. In order to expand his knowledge, he completed an internship with Daniel Platisa in his Basel based Q-Lab Studio, in the same year.
At the age of 17, he founded his own company Amadeus Paulussen Sounddesign, which he renamed kubus media. His desire to get a monitor system of Klein + Hummel for a trial period at his own studio, required him to present a registered business and this was the reason to found his company at such tender age; the O 100 / O 800 - monitor. He published in 1999, together with Daniel Sgubin, a first production in a vinyl small series, on a sub-label of DJ Beat: Modular Records. Further vinyl releases did follow, with Tihomir Markovic under the pseudonym Pushing Elementz, on the Label Limiter Records. More vinyl and digital releases followed on with Francesco Calí, under the name Paulussen & Cali on DJ C-Rock's Label Lo-Fi Stereo. At the time Christian Rindermann published artists like Ricardo Villalobos, Neville Attree, Steve Bug or Motorcitysoul on his label. In the years 2002-2015, as managing director of kubus media, he could perform numerous jobs, with his team, including Michael Studer among others, in the area of corporate sound for clients such as Swisscom, ALPA, David Klein and Basler Versicherungsgesellschaft.
In 2011 he was introduced to the Bern based company PANArt and its instrument, the Hang, through his mother and wife. Today he plays the successor instrument together with his wife, the Gubal, integrates it in his still electronically-oriented Productions. Since 2014 he runs the kubus media studio in Basel together with Chris Air. In 2015 he published his first solo album "1". "1" was produced by mixed by Chris Air at kubus media studio. It was mastered by Daniel Dettwiler at Basel's Idee und Klang Studio.
