Mon, September 26, 8:30am – 4:00pm
12837 Flushing Meadows Dr., St. Louis, MO 63131 (map)
See http://www.cetc.umsl.edu/catalog/unix.html Linux was developed as a version of UNIX, for use on personal 
computers. Its syntax, kernel compilation, and environment are very similar to other versions of UNIX. 
Students interested in Linux can take the UNIX series of classes to learn the basics of the operating system. 
Advanced UNIX Scripting: SED and AWK (Prerequisites: Advanced UNIX/Linux: Scripting or programming experience 
using Bourne, C shell, or Korn shell.) This course is designed for anyone managing such services as Apache 
Web, DNS, print, mail, or database. If you are concerned with system-wide, network, or firewall performance, 
or need to learn more about log file evaluations, this course will guide you through the programming you need. 
Learn to create complex programs for automating functions used in managing a UNIX system. You will have 
hands-on experience with the AWK programming language in gathering system statistics and generating reports; 
the Stream editor (SED) for multiple editing changes on a variety of files, including colon-delimited and 
Web-based; and the advanced features of Korn and C shells for using functions. You will generate programs to 
control, monitor, and report on multiple-system services and applications. Fee: $399 Two-Day Class Meets 
8:30am-4:00pm (13 hours)

Wed, September 28, 7pm – 9pm
  International Taphouse 1711 S. 9th Street, Saint Louis, MO (map)
STL ALT.NET started off the right way: a bunch of smart people talking tech and drinking beer on a sunny 
Wednesday in September. That was one year ago. Our group has grown significantly since then. This month we 
will forego our normal format for something a little more laid back, and give members a chance to get to know 
each other better,... Learn more Remember that we will still be raffling swag in September as well, including 
one annual TekPub license, valued at $279.00! So save the date, make the drive, drink the beer, meet awesome 
devs, and win some prizes! NOT the usual Venue: of Professional Employment Group
See http://www.meetup.com/stlaltdotnet/ Developers should not align themselves with platforms and languages, 
but with principles and ideas. An "alternative" view of the Microsoft development universe--a view that 
challenged the "Microsoft-only" approach to software development. He distilled his thoughts into four key 
developer characteristics which form the basis of the ALT.NET philosophy: 1. You're the type of developer who 
uses what works while keeping an eye out for a better way. 2. You reach outside the mainstream to adopt the 
best of any community: Open Source, Agile, Java, Ruby, etc. ,,,

This is a free event, but seating is limited and there are no reservations. We meet on the last Wednesday of 
the month during the academic year, usually from 7:00 - 8:30 PM..

We begin this year with David Wright, PhD, Professor and Chair of Mathematics at Washington University 
speaking on Mathematics and Music. Professor Wright is the Associate Director of the Ambassadors of Harmony, 
the International Champion a cappella chorus based in St Louis. As a composer, arranger and historian, he has 
been featured on radio and TV broadcasts at home and abroad, and has authored several articles on barbershop 
harmony and its role in the world of vocal harmony.

  For ten years, Professor Wright has taught a popular course at WU entitled Mathematics and Music. He wrote 
the textbook  for the class. He will include highlights and demonstrations from this course when he presents 
on Wednesday evening.

  Many people intuitively sense that there is a connection between mathematics and music. If nothing else, 
both involve counting. There is actually much more to the association. Mathematics has been observed to be the 
most abstract of the sciences, music the most abstract of the arts. Mathematics attempts to understand 
conceptual and logical truth and appreciates the intrinsic beauty of such. Music evokes mood and emotion by 
the audio medium of tones and rhythms without appealing to circumstantial means of eliciting such innate human 
reactions. It is therefore not surprising that the symbiosis of the two disciplines is an age old story.

The Greek mathematician Pythagoras noted the integral relationships between frequencies of musical tones in a 
consonant interval; the 18th century musician J. S. Bach studied the mathematical problem of finding a 
practical way to tune keyboard instruments. In today’s world it is not at all unusual to encounter individuals 
who have significant interest in both subjects. In this talk, several musical and mathematical notions will be 
brought together, such as scales/modular arithmetic, octave identification/equivalence relation, 
intervals/logarithms, equal temperament/exponents, overtones/integers, tone/trigonometry, timbre/harmonic 
analysis, tuning/rationality. Music concepts to be discussed include scales, intervals, rhythm, meter, melody, 
chords, progressions, note classes, overtones, timbre, formants,equal temperament, and just intonation. 
Mathematical concepts covered include integers,rational and real numbers, equivalence relations, geometric 
transformations, modular arithmetic, logarithms, exponentials, and periodic functions.

                                                       Big G: The constant that controls the universe, and why 
it's so hard to measure
Prof.  Clifford Will, Department of Physics, Washi U

201 Crow Hall   10-11:30am
The constant that controls the universe, and why it's so hard to measure Newton's constant of gravitation, G, 
determines the gravitational attraction between two given masses a given distance apart.    It controls the 
strength of gravity we feel on Earth, the formation and evolution of the Sun, the size of black holes and the 
history and fate of the universe.   Yet gravity is by far the weakest of the four fundamental forces of 
nature.   As a result, it is devilishly hard to measure G with any precision.  In this talk we will describe 
the history of "G", discuss how it is measured and show why it plays such a dominant cosmic role.   We will 
also discuss whether this constant of nature is really constant.
