<p class="MsoNormal"><b>Publication Information:</b> <i>The American Mathematical Monthly</i>, vol. 106, 1999, pp. 1-18</p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><strong>Summary:</strong> This paper explores the possibility that if one is interested in a simple version of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge mystery, namely large amplitudinal torsional oscillation about an equilibrium, then the puzzle might have its roots in a simple trigonometric approximation introduced in the engineering literature in 1950.</p></div></div></div>3D Plotter with PaperVision3D and Flex
