Idea-nets and uniqueness of US inaugural addresses

Posted by & filed under Art, Code, Community, Computation, Data, Graphics, Linguistics, Wolfram, Wolfram Language.

What is common between a symphony and a novel? They both progress linearly in time. This is why songs match lyrics and music so well. This seems obvious but comprehension of spacial objects is different. You can look at a two-dimensional painting and your sense of art is driven by the simultaneous perception of different […]

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. […]

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 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. […]

ASCII Tree

Happy ASCII New Year ;-)

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

I can occasionally appreciate a nice ASCII art design. But the better is the design, the more manual and custom approach it needs – or so it seems. It is actually quite challenging, if you think about it, to transform a known image or shape to a limited medium using finite set of geometries. So […]

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 😉 […]

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell

Mighty reads: “Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell” by Susanna Clarke

Posted by & filed under Book.

Harry Potter for adults. Long thoroughly enjoyable volume. Magic told as if would be part of society. Cold British political satire soaking every page, every sentence. I would call this “action in slow motion”. Because there is action. And suspense. But a gentlemen shall move with a respectful grace. And so we shall read.   “Neil […]

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 […]

Estimated remaining time: monitoring lengthy computations

Posted by & filed under Community, Wolfram.

I just posted on Wolfram Community. For comments – go to the original post. An here is what it is about. I sometimes run lengthy computations, overnight or even a few days. We have built in Monitor function to track the progress of a variable. But I often find it useful to estimate how much […]

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 […]
