Sees Use of Math in Science


Mathematics finds two distinct~
applications in the behaviorial sci-
ences, Prof. Anatol Rapoport of
the Mental Health Research Insti-
tute said yesterday in a mathe-
matics education l e c t u r e on
"Mathematics and the Behavorial
It provides both quantitative de-
scriptions of the events studied by
the science and a deductive theo-
retical structure to explain the
The first stages of any science
-physical, biological or behav-
orial-are primarily qualitative, he

pointed out, and therefore do not
need the tools of mathematics.
Quantitative and Simple
Then the science becomes quan-
titative and starts using measure-
ment, and therefore simple forms
of mathematics. The primary need
at this step, he noted, is finding
quantities to be measured and
scales with which to measure
In physics, this problem was of
less importance, because the scales
for mass, position, and time meas-
urement were relatively easier to
find than the useful measureable
quantities in the social sciences.
Measurement Yields Low
After the stage of simple meas-
urement comes condensation of
large amounts of data into mathe-
matical laws which provide con-
cise summaries of large amounts
of information.
In the social sciences, these laws
will generally be formulated in
statistical form because of the
variation in behavior of living or-*

To Present Talks
About 'Costuming'
The speech department is spon-
soring two colloquiums on "Cos-
tuming" at 1 p.m. and 2:15 p.m.
today in the East Conference Rm.,
Rackham Bldg. Prof. Lucy Barton
of the University of Texas will
moderate the discussions.

In Voice Duw
The importance of voice changes
occuring during adolescence was
stressed in an address on "Voice
Problems of the Child and the
Adolescent" delivered by Dr. Fred-
erich S. Brodnitz as part of the
Summer Session Conference pre-
sented yesterday.
Dr. Brodnitz, chairman of the
Voice and Speech Clinic at Mt
Sinai Hospital in New York City
said that little is known about
these problems.
"We know quite a bit about the
mechanics and the psychology of
voice disorders, but there are not
many statistics on them."
Two Categories
Voice disorders, Dr. Brodnitz
said, were grouped into two cate-
gories, organic and functional. The
first includes malignancies, while
functional disorders are caused
by misuse of the voice. He said
that one of the more common or-
ganic disorders is a hypernasality
following the removal of tonsils or
adenoids. This hypernasality ac-
tually exists before such an opera-
tion but it is masked.
"I am convinced that these cases
ca nbe picked up before the oper-
ation, and am in favor of each
child seeing a speech therapist be-
fore the operation takes place,'
Dr. Brodnitz said.
Speaking on the problems of
adolescence, Dr. Brodnitz said that
much too little attention is being
given to the change of voice. He
referred to this period as "one of
the most important landmarks in
the development of an individua
He suggested that a great many
of the disorders incurred during
this time are psychogenic in ori-
gin; such a disorder is the "in-

ganisms-as opposed, for instance,
to the general predictability of the
physical sciences.
But there is an even more basic
use of mathematics which is just
beginning to come into its own in
the social sciences, although it has
been used for long periods of time
in the physical sciences.
Derivation by Deduction
Mathematics can provide syste-
matic models of large areas of a
science in only a few basic laws,
from which the descriptive laws
previously found may be derived by
In the physical sciences, for in-
stance, Prof. Rapoport said, laws
such as the conservation of ener-
gy are used to deduce descriptive
laws relating the temperature,
pressure and volume of gases un-
der different conditions.
