I once had a beutiful pin of my grandfather's. It was a gold skull that said XXX across the forehead, had an emerald eye, and my grandmother's initials on the back. He was a member of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity and graduated from the University of Missouri in 1910 or so. I suspect you have someone's fraternity pin there. Mine also had a skeletal hand up over the other (empty) eye socket.

I agree-- I don't think this is a German military pin. The SS wore a Skull insignia on their visor caps. This small pin made of stamped aluminum sometimes sale for $250.

I'm researching the same thing, my grandmother was handed down her uncle's (I think) pin fitting that EXACT description. Actually her uncle had given it to his wife, he "pinned" her, kind of signifying she was taken. My grandmother said it was from his fraternity at MCV here in Virginia which is now known as VCU, she seems to think it was a medical fraternity or something. But I'm having trouble finding anything out about it online. Has anyone found anymore about it since posting this question?

By itself, nothing: it all depends on the context. epsilon is a letter of the Greek alphabet which is used in calculus to represent a very small number.


What is Greek mathematical symbol e?

The greek letter closest to representing the latin letter e is epsilon (ɛ). In math's, epsilon is mainly used to represent very small positive numbers (e.g. when working with proofs), and used as the Levi-Civita symbol (a.k.a. the permutation symbol, used in tensor calculus, sometimes uses upper epsilon E, instead of lower epsilon ɛ). It is also often used in statistics and numerical analysis to represent errors.


How far is the star Epsilon from Earth?

There is no "star Epsilon". Epsilon is the fifth letter of the Greek alphabet; as a result, there are lots of stars that have "epsilon" in their names - basically one for each constellation: Epsilon Eridani, Epsilon Cruxis, Epsilon Canis Majoris, Epsilon Orionis, etc.

What is the value for episilon?

'Epsilon' is the fifth letter in the Greek alphabet. When used as a symbol to represent math and science things, its value completely depends on the definition you give it. For example, if you were to define epsilon as the wavelength of blue light in feet, then its value would be 0.0000013123 (rounded), whereas if you define epsilon as the average distance between the Earth and sun in Astronomical Units, then its value is precisely 1.0000 . It all depends on your definition of epsilon.


What number does epsilon represent in math?

The Greek lowercase epsilon ε, the lunate epsilon symbol ϵ, or the Latin lowercase epsilon ɛ (see above) is used as the symbol for:In mathematics (particularly calculus), an arbitrarily small positive quantity is commonly denoted ε; see (ε, δ)-definition of limit. In reference to this, the late mathematician Paul Erdős also used the term "epsilons" to refer to children (Hoffman1998, p. 4).In mathematics, Hilbert introduced epsilon terms as an extension to first order logic; see epsilon calculus.In mathematics, the Levi-Civita symbol.In mathematics, to represent the dual numbers: a + bε, with ε2 = 0 and ε≠ 0.In mathematics, sometimes used to denote the Heaviside step function.
