Dear Sir or Madame:  

No, I'm not asking a question relating to a school project of any kind.
I'm a grandmother who is having trouble understanding her son's explanation of 
what he's studying in university.  He's drawn all five for me but I don't 
understand how or why someone would want to know/use this information.  Please 
help - what do the drawings mean?

Thank you very much,
Mrs. Karen Knautz
