  • 60) ‘That tune touches on Evans a great deal in its chording and harmonies, and Reilly also has much of Evans's instinct for constantly relaunching solos from new melodic locations, so the music always conveys a sense of movement and dynamism.’

  • 70) ‘In addition to lots of bluesy riff bashing, hard rock power chording and screaming bent-note guitar solos, there are elements of pop, Celtic, Indian, folk, and 20th century classical music that run throughout it.’
  • 71) ‘He found the length of an arc of the cycloid using an exhaustion proof based on dissections to reduce the problem to summing segments of chords of a circle which are in geometric progression.’
  • 72) ‘He wrote on the computation of sines and chords.’

  • 75) ‘Madhava also gave a table of almost accurate values of half-sine chords for twenty-four arcs drawn at equal intervals in a quarter of a given circle.’
  • 76) ‘Since the gear had a shorter strut, it could fold aft and retract within the chord of the wing.’
