parallel_prankster writes “I find this paper very amusing. From the abstract: ‘To develop a mathematical model for the determination of total areas under curves from various metabolic studies.’ Hint! If you replace phrases like ‘curves from metabolic studies’ with just ‘curves,’ then you’ll note that Dr. Tai rediscovered the rectangle method of approximating an integral. (Actually, Dr. Tai rediscovered the trapezoidal rule.). Apparently this is called ‘Tai’s Model.’”
