In 1995, after being advised by the Navy’s office of awards and special
projects that he was not entitled to wear the decorations, he immediately
removed them. On May 16, 1996, with Newsweek magazine about to publish
an article exposing his questionable claims to combat service, Boorda

Last Jews killed in the Warsaw Ghetto itself,
the few survivors are sent to die at Treblinka as the Warsaw Ghetto
uprising comes to an end.
In the evening Nazi soldiers gain control of Warsaw’s Jewish ghetto,
blowing up the last remaining synagogue and initiating the mass deportation
of the ghetto’s remaining dwellers to the Treblinka extermination
camp. The revolt began on April 18 when Jews, walled into a stifling
area after the massive German assault on the city, began a heroic
armed revolt against their German persecutors. After all was said
and done, 14'000 Jews were killed in the revolt or sent to the death
camp at Treblinka and another 42'000 were sent to labor camps in Lublin.
Shortly after the German occupation
of Poland began, the Nazis forced the city’s Jewish citizens into
a "ghetto" surrounded by barbed wire and armed S.S. guards. The Warsaw
ghetto had an area of only 3.4 square kilometers but soon held almost
500'000 Jews in deplorable conditions. Disease and starvation killed
thousands every month and, beginning in July of 1942, six thousand
Jews per day were transferred to the Treblinka concentration camp.
Although the Nazis assured the remaining Jews that their relatives
and friends were being sent to work camps, word soon reached the ghetto
that deportation to the camp meant extermination.
An underground resistance group was established in the ghetto
the Jewish Combat Organization (ZOB) and limited arms were
acquired at great cost. On January 18, 1943, when the Nazis entered
the ghetto to prepare a group for transfer, a ZOB unit ambushed them.
Fighting lasted for several days, and a number of Germans soldiers
were killed before they withdrew.
On April 19, Nazi leader Heinrich Himmler announced that the ghetto
was to be cleared out in honor of Hitler’s birthday the following
day, and over a thousand S.S. soldiers entered the confines with tanks
and heavy artillery. Although many of the ghetto’s remaining 60'000
Jewish dwellers attempted to hide themselves in secret bunkers, over
a thousand ZOB members met the Germans with gunfire and homemade bombs.
Suffering moderate casualties, the Germans initially withdrew but
soon returned, and on April 24 launched an all-out attack against
the Warsaw Jews. Thousands were slaughtered as the Germans systematically
moved down the ghettos, blowing up the buildings one by one.
The ZOB took to the sewers to continue
the fight, but on May 8 their command bunker fell to the Germans and
their resistant leaders committed suicide. By May 16, the ghetto was
firmly under Nazi control and mass deportation of the last Warsaw
Jews to Treblinka began. During the uprising some 300 hundred German
soldiers were killed to the thousands of Warsaw Jews who were massacred.
Virtually all of those who survived to reach Treblinka had been killed
by the end of the war.
1584 Russian partisans, by German bombs.
The German army launches Operation Gypsy Baron against partisan resistance
fighters who controlled large tracts of swampland, forest, and mountain
ranges and were still battling the German invaders on the eastern
front in Russia. Out of 6000 partisans in the region, German bombing
killed 1584 and another 1568 were taken prisoner. The Germans dropped
840'000 leaflets calling for the surrender of the partisans.

1268 persons as dam bombing floods Ruhr.
British Royal Air Force sets into motion a plan to bomb key dams in
order to flood the Ruhr region of Germany. Operation Chastise, part
of a larger strategy of "area bombing" begun a year earlier was led
by Guy Gibson, one of the RAF's best bomber pilots. Leading 18 bombers
at low altitude across the North Sea and Holland, Gibson lost six
bombers and 56 of his crew (out of 133) who were shot down before
reaching their destinations, the Mohne, Eder, and Sorpe dams.
The surviving aircraft succeeded in
destroying two of their three targets, causing the Ruhr river, a tributary
of the Rhine, to flood the surrounding area, killing 1268 people,
including, unfortunately, 700 Russian slave laborers. Gibson would
be awarded the Victoria Cross for his successful, though costly, raid.

Fourier, mathematician, Egyptologist.
mathematician born on 21 March 1768, known also as an Egyptologist
and administrator, who exerted strong influence on mathematical physics
through his Théorie analytique de la chaleur (1822). He showed
how the conduction of heat in solid bodies may be analyzed in terms
of infinite mathematical series now called by his name, the Fourier
series. Far transcending the particular subject of heat conduction,
his work stimulated research in mathematical physics, which has since
been often identified with the solution of boundary-value problems,
encompassing many natural occurrences such as sunspots, tides, and
the weather. His work also had a great influence on the theory of
functions of a real variable, one of the main branches of modern mathematics.
father was a tailor in Auxerre. After the death of his first wife,
with whom he had three children, he remarried and Joseph was the ninth
of the twelve children of this second marriage. Joseph's mother died
went he was nine years old and his father died the following year.
His first schooling was at Pallais's
school, run by the music master from the cathedral. There Joseph studied
Latin and French and showed great promise. He proceeded in 1780 to
the Ecole Royale Militaire of Auxerre where at first he showed talents
for literature but very soon, by the age of thirteen, mathematics
became his real interest. By the age of 14 he had completed a study
of the six volumes of Bézout's
Cours de mathématique. In 1783 he received the first
prize for his study of Bossut's
Mécanique en général.
In 1787 Fourier decided to train for the priesthood and entered the
Benedictine abbey of St Benoit-sur-Loire. His interest in mathematics
continued, however, and he corresponded with C L Bonard, the professor
of mathematics at Auxerre. Fourier was unsure if he was making the
right decision in training for the priesthood. He submitted a paper
on algebra to Montucla
in Paris and his letters to Bonard suggest that he really wanted to
make a major impact in mathematics. In one letter Fourier wrote
Yesterday was my 21st
birthday, at that age Newton
had already acquired many claims to immortality.
Fourier did not take his religious vows. Having left St Benoit in
1789, he visited Paris and read a paper on algebraic equations at
the Académie Royale des Sciences. In 1790 he became a teacher at the
Benedictine college, Ecole Royale Militaire of Auxerre, where he had
studied. Up until this time there had been a conflict inside Fourier
about whether he should follow a religious life or one of mathematical
research. However in 1793 a third element was added to this conflict
when he became involved in politics and joined the local Revolutionary
Committee. As he wrote:
As the natural ideas of equality developed it was possible to
conceive the sublime hope of establishing among us a free government
exempt from kings and priests, and to free from this double yoke the
long-usurped soil of Europe. I readily became enamored of this cause,
in my opinion the greatest and most beautiful which any nation has
Fourier was unhappy about the Terror which resulted from the French
Revolution and he attempted to resign from the committee. However
this proved impossible and Fourier was now firmly entangled with the
Revolution and unable to withdraw. The revolution was a complicated
affair with many factions, with broadly similar aims, violently opposed
to each other. Fourier defended members of one faction while in Orléans.
A letter describing events relates:
Citizen Fourier, a young man full of intelligence, eloquence and
zeal, was sent to Loiret. ... It seems that Fourier ... got up on
certain popular platforms. He can talk very well and if he put forward
the views of the Society of Auxerre he has done nothing blameworthy...
This incident was to have serious
consequences but after it Fourier returned to Auxerre and continued
to work on the revolutionary committee and continued to teach at the
College. In July 1794 he was arrested, the charges relating to the
Orléans incident, and he was imprisoned. Fourier feared the he would
go to the guillotine but, after Robespierre himself went to the guillotine,
political changes resulted in Fourier being freed.
Later in 1794 Fourier was nominated to study at the Ecole Normale
in Paris. This institution had been set up for training teachers and
it was intended to serve as a model for other teacher-training schools.
The school opened in January 1795 and Fourier was certainly the most
able of the pupils whose abilities ranged widely. He was taught by
whom Fourier described as the first among European men of science,
and also by Laplace,
whom Fourier rated less highly, and by Monge
whom Fourier described as having a loud voice and is active, ingenious
and very learned.
began teaching at the Collège de France and, having excellent relations
with Lagrange, Laplace and Monge, began further mathematical research.
He was appointed to a position at the Ecole Centrale Des Travaux Publiques,
the school being under the direction of Lazare Carnot
and Gaspard Monge, which was soon to be renamed Ecole Polytechnique.
However, repercussions of his earlier arrest remained and he was arrested
again imprisoned. His release has been put down to a variety of different
causes, pleas by his pupils, pleas by Lagrange, Laplace or Monge or
a change in the political climate. In fact all three may have played
By 1 September 1795 Fourier
was back teaching at the Ecole Polytechnique. In 1797 he succeeded
Lagrange in being appointed to the chair of analysis and mechanics.
He was renowned as an outstanding lecturer but he does not appear
to have undertaken original research during this time.
In 1798 Fourier joined Napoléon's army in its invasion of Egypt
as scientific adviser. Monge and Malus
were also part of the expeditionary force. The expedition was at first
a great success. Malta was occupied on 10 June 1798, Alexandria taken
by storm on 1 July, and the delta of the Nile quickly taken. However,
on 1 August 1798 the French fleet was completely destroyed by Nelson's
fleet in the Battle of the Nile, so that Napoléon found himself
confined to the land that he was occupying. Fourier acted as an administrator
as French type political institutions and administration was set up.
In particular he helped establish educational facilities in Egypt
and carried out archaeological explorations.
While in Cairo Fourier helped found the Cairo Institute and was one
of the twelve members of the mathematics division, the others included
Monge, Malus and Napoléon Bonaparte. Fourier was elected secretary
to the Institute, a position he continued to hold during the entire
French occupation of Egypt. Fourier was also put in charge of collating
the scientific and literary discoveries made during the time in Egypt.
Napoléon abandoned his army
and returned to Paris in 1799, he soon held absolute power in France.
Fourier returned to France in 1801 with the remains of the expeditionary
force and resumed his post as Professor of Analysis at the Ecole Polytechnique.
However Napoléon had other ideas about how Fourier might serve
him and wrote:
the Prefect of the Department of Isère having recently died, I would
like to express my confidence in citizen Fourier by appointing him
to this place. Fourier was not
happy at the prospect of leaving the academic world and Paris but
could not refuse Napoléon's request. He went to Grenoble where
his duties as Prefect were many and varied. His two greatest achievements
in this administrative position was overseeing the operation to drain
the swamps of Bourgoin and to oversee the construction of a new highway
from Grenoble to Turin. He also spent much time working on the Description
of Egypt which was not completed until 1810 when Napoléon
made changes, rewriting history in places, to it before publication.
By the time a second edition appeared every reference to Napoléon
would have been removed.
during his time in Grenoble that Fourier did his important mathematical
work on the theory of heat. His work on the topic began around 1804
and by 1807 he had completed his important memoir On the Propagation
of Heat in Solid Bodies. The memoir was read to the Paris Institute
on 21 December 1807 and a committee consisting of Lagrange, Laplace,
Monge and Lacroix
was set up to report on the work. Now this memoir is very highly regarded
but at the time it caused controversy.
There were two reasons for the committee to feel unhappy with the
work. The first objection, made by Lagrange and Laplace in 1808, was
to Fourier's expansions of functions as trigonometric series, what
we now call Fourier series. Further clarification by Fourier still
failed to convince them. As is pointed out in :
All these are written with such exemplary clarity - from a logical
as opposed to calligraphic point of view - that their inability to
and Lagrange ... provides a good index of the originality
of Fourier's views.
second objection was made by Biot
against Fourier's derivation of the equations of transfer of heat.
Fourier had not made reference to Biot's
1804 paper on this topic but Biot's paper is certainly incorrect.
Laplace, and later Poisson,
had similar objections.
set as a prize competition subject the propagation of heat in solid
bodies for the 1811 mathematics prize. Fourier submitted his 1807
memoir together with additional work on the cooling of infinite solids
and terrestrial and radiant heat. Only one other entry was received
and the committee set up to decide on the award of the prize, Lagrange,
Laplace, Malus, Haüy and Legendre,
awarded Fourier the prize. The report was not however completely favorable
manner in which the author arrives at these equations is not exempt
of difficulties and that his analysis to integrate them still leaves
something to be desired on the score of generality and even rigor.
With this rather mixed report there
was no move in Paris to publish Fourier's work.
When Napoléon was defeated and on his way to exile in Elba,
his route should have been through Grenoble. Fourier managed to avoid
this difficult confrontation by sending word that it would be dangerous
for Napoléon. When he learnt of Napoléon's escape from
Elba and that he was marching towards Grenoble with an army, Fourier
was extremely worried. He tried to persuade the people of Grenoble
to oppose Napoléon and give their allegiance to the King. However
as Napoléon marched into the town Fourier left in haste.
Napoléon was angry with Fourier
who he had hoped would welcome his return. Fourier was able to talk
his way into favor with both sides and Napoléon made him Prefect
of the Rhône. However Fourier soon resigned on receiving orders, possibly
that the was to remove all administrators with royalist sympathies.
He could not have completely fallen out with Napoléon and Carnot,
however, for on 10 June 1815, Napoléon awarded him a pension
of 6000 francs, payable from 1 July. However Napoléon was defeated
on 1 July and Fourier did not receive any money. He returned to Paris.
Fourier was elected to the Académie
Des Sciences in 1817. In 1822 Delambre,
who was the Secretary to the mathematical section of the Académie
Des Sciences, died and Fourier together with Biot and Arago
applied for the post. After Arago withdrew the election gave Fourier
an easy win. Shortly after Fourier became Secretary, the Academy published
his prize winning essay Théorie analytique de la chaleur
in 1822. This was not a piece of political maneuvering by Fourier
however since Delambre had arranged for the printing before he died
on 16 May 1830.
eight last years in Paris he resumed his mathematical researches and
published a number of papers, some in pure mathematics while some
were on applied mathematical topics. His life was not without problems
however since his theory of heat still provoked controversy. Biot
claimed priority over Fourier, a claim which Fourier had little difficulty
showing to be false. Poisson, however, attacked both Fourier's mathematical
techniques and also claimed to have an alternative theory. Fourier
wrote Historical Précis as a reply to these claims but, although
the work was shown to various mathematicians, it was never published.
Fourier's views on the claims of Biot
and Poisson are given in the following:
Having contested the various results [Biot and Poisson]
now recognize that they are exact but they protest that they have
invented another method of expounding them and that this method is
excellent and the true one. If they had illuminated this branch of
physics by important and general views and had greatly perfected the
analysis of partial differential equations,
if they had established a principal element of the theory of heat
by fine experiments ... they would have the right to judge my work
and to correct it. I would submit with much pleasure .. But
one does not extend the bounds of science by presenting, in a form
said to be different, results which one has not found oneself and,
above all, by forestalling the true author in publication. Fourier's
work provided the impetus for later work on trigonometric series and
the theory of functions of a real variable.

The Fourier transform, in essence,
decomposes or separates a waveform or function into sinusoids of different
frequency which sum to the original waveform. It identifies or distinguishes
the different frequency sinusoids and their respective amplitudes.
Linear transforms, especially Fourier
and Laplace transforms, are widely used in solving problems in science
and engineering. The Fourier transform is used in linear systems analysis,
antenna studies, optics, random process modeling, probability theory,
quantum physics, and boundary-value problems and has been very successfully
applied to restoration of astronomical data. The Fourier transform,
a pervasive and versatile tool, is used in many fields of science
as a mathematical or physical tool to alter a problem into one that
can be more easily solved. Some scientists understand Fourier theory
as a physical phenomenon, not simply as a mathematical tool. In some
branches of science, the Fourier transform of one function may yield
another physical function.
Fourier Theorem: A simple statement of it is:. Any physical
function that varies periodically with time with a frequency f can
be expressed as a superposition of sinusoidal components of frequencies:
f, 2f, 3f, 4f, ... etc
