  1. Daniel Sutherland (2015). Kant on the Construction and Composition of Motion in the Phoronomy. Canadian Journal of Philosophy 44 (5-6):686-718.
    This paper examines the role of Kant's theory of mathematical cognition in his phoronomy, his pure doctrine of motion. I argue that Kant's account of how we can construct the composition of motion rests on the construction of extended intervals of space and time, and the representation of the identity of the part–whole relations the construction of these intervals allow. Furthermore, the construction of instantaneous velocities and their composition also rests on the representation of extended intervals of space and time, (...)

  3. Daniel Sutherland (2008). Arithmetic From Kant to Frege: Numbers, Pure Units, and the Limits of Conceptual Representation. Royal Institute of Philosophy Supplement 83 (63):135-164.
    There is evidence in Kant of the idea that concepts of particular numbers, such as the number 5, are derived from the representation of units, and in particular pure units, that is, units that are qualitatively indistinguishable. Frege, in contrast, rejects any attempt to derive concepts of number from the representation of units. In the Foundations of Arithmetic , he softens up his reader for his groundbreaking and unintuitive analysis of number by attacking alternative views, and he devotes the majority (...)

  5. Daniel Sutherland (2005). Kant on Fundamental Geometrical Relations. Archiv für Geschichte der Philosophie 87 (2):117-158.
    Equality, similarity and congruence are essential elements of Kant’s theory of geometrical cognition; nevertheless, Kant’s account of them is not well understood. This paper provides historical context for treatments of these geometrical relations, presents Kant’s views on their mathematical definitions, and explains Kant’s theory of their cognition. It also places Kant’s theory within the larger context of his understanding of the quality-quantity distinction. Most importantly, it argues that the relation of equality, in conjunction with the categories of quantity, plays a (...)

    The aggregate EIRP of an N-element antenna array is proportional to N 2. This observation illustrates an effective approach for providing deep space networks with very powerful uplinks. The increased aggregate EIRP can be employed in a number of ways, including improved emergency communications, reaching farther into deep space, increased uplink data rates, and the flexibility of simultaneously providing more than one uplink beam with the array. Furthermore, potential for cost savings also exists since the array can be formed using (...)
