We propose a pattern recognition method that identifies the common tangent lines of a set of ellipses. The detection of the tangent lines is attained by applying the Legendre transform on a given set of ellipses. As context, we consider a hypothetical detector made out of layers of chambers, each of which returns an ellipse as an output signal. The common tangent of these ellipses represents the trajectory of a charged particle crossing the detector. The proposed method is evaluated using… 



Making sense of the Legendre transform

The Legendre transform is a powerful tool in theoretical physics and plays an important role in classical mechanics, statistical mechanics, and thermodynamics. In typical undergraduate and graduate

Connecting thermodynamics to students’ calculus

I describe subtle calculus ideas that are essential for thermodynamics, but are typically not encountered by students in calculus or prior physics classes. I argue that these previously unencountered
