Pascal's Triangle and Combinatorics

Mount Meru, Pascal's Triangle
Pascal's Triangle can be used to easily work out the number of permutations for a given number of "ingredients" and "places". For example the above diagram highlights that the number of permutations for 3 ingredients over 3 places equals 27:
AAAAABABABAAAACACACAAABC ACB
BBBBBABABABBBBCBCBCBBBCA BAC
CCCCCACACACCCCBCCBBCCCAB CBA

One simply follows the diagonals down from each side. The circle where they meet shows the answer. The smaller number in the circle indicates the number of different Ratios possible for the ingredients and places. In this case it is 10:

ABC
AAABBBCCC
AABBBACCA
AACBBCCCB

Note that the small black "Ratio" numbers are identical with the numbers of Pascal's Triangle.

The larger blue "Permutation" numbers follow a simple pattern. The diagonal line from a particular Ingredient Number contains all the powers of that number from 1 to as far as the triangle is extended. For example the 2 Ingredient Line contains all the powers of 2 ie: 1,2,4,8,16,32...etc and the 3 Ingredient Line contains all the powers of 3 ie: 1, 3, 9, 27, 81...etc.

The diagnal line from a particular Place Number contains all the numbers of a particular power from 1 to as far as the triangle is extended. For example the 2 Place Line includes all the Square Numbers ie: 1, 4, 9, 16, 25...etc and the 3 Place Line contains all the cube numbers ie: 1, 8, 27, 64...etc.

Three Dreams on Mount Meru
by Francois DevenneSearch for Francois Devenne
$14.95
$1.84 new/used

"A man? You? You dream, Bayu, you dream, but all the same, you have not dreamed enough because you haven't made the journey to Mount Meru..."

The sharp words of his fiancée to the young African Muslim, Bayu, push him forward. He becomes impatient to achieve what generations of his ancestors, a clan of sculptors and artists, have done: To make the journey which all men of the clan must make, and to dream three dreams on Mount Meru, before he can take a wife. From a village near Mombassa, in Kenya, he must cross the forests to Mount Meru, in Tanzania, a huge distance across hostile terrain, made harder by his inexperience and innocence. Yet, step by step, the young sculptor throws himself into the adventure, which illuminates a wild universe--the strange beauty of the trees, the ever-present animals who alternately threaten and protect him on this increasingly magical but always dangerous voyage. And throughout, the eyes of the leopard--a figure which Bayu's ancestor held captivated and captive--protect him. Bayu's journey through the forests and mountains entrances us as we are absorbed into his world.François Devenne enchants with this remarkable tale. Eloquently translated by Lauren Yoder.

The Nature of Christianity in Northern Tanzania: Environmental and Social Change 1890-1916
by Robert B. MunsonSearch for Robert B. Munson
$110.00
$80.89 new/used

The Nature of Christianity in Northern Tanzania explores the relationship between the region?s environment and social change during the pivotal, often over-looked German colonial period (1890-1916). The work connects changes in the landscape order and biogeography closely with the beginning Christianization of the three groups on the mountains ? the Chagga on Mt Kilimanjaro and the Meru and Arusha peoples of Mt Meru.

The work tells a story which is ordered, green and Christian. It looks at both new ideas and plants brought by the Germans to their colony in East Africa. The introduced German-like order and the exotic plants changed the landscape during the short period of German rule. However, the changes taking root in the African societies, driven primarily by the introduction of Christianity, led to an acceptance and adaptation of these imports. Religious change is one of the most profound elements of social change and it deeply impacted the world view of the Chagga, Meru and Arusha peoples. Within all three groups, their worldview was closely tied to religion ? there is no difference between the natural and social spheres nor the religious and secular worlds.

In the interaction between the German and Africans, the ideas, use of plants and even Christianity became altered, Africanized, and finally propagated by the African groups, helping to create the new African/European landscape. This heritage lives on up till today, growing on the landscape, nurtured by the changes in the societies of the Chagga, Meru and Arusha peoples on Mt Kilimanjaro and Mt Meru.
