Benford law states that the occurrence of digits from 0-9 in a large set of data is not uniformly distributed but instead in a decreasing logarithmic distribution with 1 occurring at most. Almost all set of data follows this trend however this law is widely used as a base for various fraud detection and forensic accounting. Benford’s law is an observation that leading digits in data derived from measurements doesn’t follow uniform distribution. Different financial statements such as cash flows, income statement and balance sheet of the 20 tech companies of the Fortune 500 are analyzed in this project. Cash flow is the net amount of cash and cash-equivalents moving into and out of a business. Income statement is a financial statement that measures a company's financial performance over a specific accounting period. Balance sheet is a financial statement that summarizes a company's assets, liabilities and shareholders’ equity at a specific point in time. All of these data of financial statements are extracted from Morning Star database and are analyzed by Python program written by me.I also wrote the Python program to calculate Benford's second digit and third digit probability using the formula. I would like to thank Prof. Erin Wagner and Dr. Courtney Taylor for helping in this research project.
Gliding is an efficient and versatile way to traverse large distances whilst expending as little energy as possible. Work done in the field of biomimetic robotics has demonstrated further benefits to gliding in increasing trajectory control and reducing landing impact loads. A small-scale micro-glider was built to fit a specific design envelope with the objective of maximizing its glide range. A linear dynamics model was used to design and predict the gliding performance of the robot. Once manufactured, it achieved a glide distance of 1.8m and the performance was accurately captured by the dynamics model.
