Who Owns the West? Federal Lands 2014

Posted by & filed under Code, Computation, Data, GIS, Mathematica, Wolfram, Wolfram Language.

This map is a spectacular example of how data reshape public perception and knowledge. Very simple in nature it nevertheless shocks an average citizen by giving clarity to the data usually buried in obscure tables. East versus west, federal versus private, – the contrast is sharp and reverberates in the minds entangled with American history. […]

Computational history: countries that are gone

Posted by & filed under Code, Computation, Data, GIS, Graphics, Mathematica, Wolfram, Wolfram Language.

X – country birth | Y – country death | RADIUS – lifetime Mongol Empire The Mongol Empire existed during the 13th and 14th centuries and was the largest contiguous land empire in history. Originating in the steppes of Central Asia, the Mongol Empire eventually stretched from Eastern Europe to the Sea of Japan, extending […]

Evolution of topics in Romeo & Juliet

Posted by & filed under 3D, App, Art, Book, Computation, Linguistics, Literature.

The actual APP that does some analysis of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” is located HERE. Please wait through a potential little load or evaluation times, it is computing! Read below for the explanation of how app works and other ideas on Shakespeare’s data mining. April 23, 2016 marks 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. Just a […]

Interactive 3D Barth Sextic Surface

Posted by & filed under 3D, App, Code, Graphics, Mathematica, Sketchfab, Widget, Wolfram, Wolfram Language.

“The Barth-sextic is a sextic surface in complex three-dimensional projective space having the maximum possible number of ordinary double points, namely 65. The surface was discovered by Wolf Barth in 1994, and is given by the implicit equation: where phi is the golden ratio.” ~ MathWorld. We can write short Wolfram Language code ( by […]

Interactive 3D Calabi-Yau Surface

Posted by & filed under 3D, Code, Demonstrations Project, Graphics, Mathematica, Sketchfab, Wolfram, Wolfram Language.

Wolfram Language allows creation of computational 3D models. These are different from those you can build with your own hands such as SketchUp etc, because computations are often intrinsically different from the way humans see and think. Let’s take for example Calabi-Yau Surface. It is a mathematical object and it is hard to imagine it. […]

Drug overdose trends in USA counties 1999 – 2014

Posted by & filed under Code, Data, Mathematica, Wolfram, Wolfram Language.

The data Drug Poisoning Mortality: United States, 1999–2014 are published by USA government. In a few recent blogs (1, 2, 3) static visualizations of data were performed. Here we show how to animate maps of geographical drug overdose spread in USA. Below you can see 4 images, each reflecting upon Age-adjusted death rates for drug […]

Sin Tree

t * sin (t) = Christmas tree

Posted by & filed under Art, Code, Community, Graphics, Mathematica, Wolfram, Wolfram Language.

Another code sample from Wolfram Community. I noticed that a discussion about programming a lighted Christmas Tree from a simple equation t*Snt[t] became very popular on Reddit. It is connected to a project a programmer developed. I thought how fast we can make it with Wolfram language? Here is the result with slight flickering 😉 […]

Dancing with friends and enemies: swarm intelligence

Posted by & filed under Art, Code, Community, Graphics, Mathematica, Wolfram.

This post is based on a thread from Wolfram Community. The rules by Simon Woods are simple: 1000 dancers assume random positions on the dance-floor. Each randomly chooses one “friend” and one “enemy”. At each step every dancer moves 0.5% closer to the centre of the floor, then takes a large step towards their friend […]

Iconography for Elementary Cellular Automata Based on Radial Convergence Diagrams

Iconography for Elementary Cellular Automata Based on Radial Convergence Diagrams

Posted by & filed under App, CDF, Code, Demonstrations Project, Mathematica, Publishing, Wolfram.

My recent publication at the Wolfram Demonstrations Project: “Iconography for Elementary Cellular Automata Based on Radial Convergence Diagrams“.   Consider a complete set of initial conditions for a finite elementary cellular automaton (ECA). This set can be indexed by integers using a Gray code or a binary to decimal conversion. During the ECA evolution, the […]

Mighty reads: “The Dog Stars” by Peter Heller

Posted by & filed under Book.

This is a great little book. I recommend the audio book edition read by Mark Deakins. A few good qoutes. “[The Dog Stars] gripped me—it’s the real deal. Heller’s voice is extraordinary and his narrator’s toughness seems to hide a beautiful and aching restlessness. One of those books that makes you happy for literature.” —Junot […]

Order, Chaos, and the Formation of a Cantor Set Attractor in Elementary Cellular Automata

Order, Chaos, and the Formation of a Cantor Set Attractor in Elementary Cellular Automata

Posted by & filed under App, CDF, Demonstrations Project, Mathematica, Publishing, Wolfram.

My recent publication at the Wolfram Demonstrations Project: Order, Chaos, and the Formation of a Cantor Set Attractor in Elementary Cellular Automata Consider finite elementary cellular automata (ECA) of size 10. All possible binary vectors of length 10 form a complete set of initial conditions (CSIC). Every step of an ECA evolution maps this set to […]

Wolfram Community is live and public!

Posted by & filed under Wolfram.

On Tuesday July 23, 2013 we publicly released a marvelous project I am and have been part of for a bit already – Wolfram Community. Read about it in the article I wrote for Wolfram Blog. The project in its essence is a networking portal for everyone interested in Wolfram Technologies. People can connect, share […]

Cobweb Diagrams of Elementary Cellular Automata

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

My recent publication at the Wolfram Demonstrations Project: Cobweb Diagrams of Elementary Cellular Automata “Each possible state in the evolution of an elementary cellular automaton (ECA) can be uniquely labeled by an integer. For a finite-width ECA, this set is mapped to itself during the ECA evolution. Thus an ECA defines a recurrence relation on a […]
