Comments06/08/2017 #3 CityVP 🐝 ManjitThe underlying resource is magnificent. To make what is tremendously inaccessible to lay audience or as Michael Frame et al say "This is a collection of pages meant to support a first course in fractal geometry for students without especially strong mathematical preparation, or any particular interest in science.", is quite commendable ! cc @Milos Djukic
- 04/08/2017The Algorithm of Pipelined Gossiping
A family of gossiping algorithms depending on a parameter permutation is introduced, formalized and discussed. Several of its members are analyzed and their asymptotic behavior is revealed, including a member whose model and performance closely follows the one of hardware pipelined processors. An optimizing algorithm is finally proposed and discussed as a general strategy to increase the performance of the base algorithms.

- Permutation Numbers
This paper investigates some series of integers which are derived from a recursively defined sequence of permutations of words. Such a recursion can be interpreted as a dynamic system. Geometrical representations of these series appear to be self-similar, symmetrical, and factorizable. The paper also shows how some bidimensional images may be decomposed into images corresponding to permutations of fewer symbols.

Today, this is a "science fiction" for many, but tomorrow it will become a reality and a driver for some real progress. I wish you a lot of success and perseverance my friend!

- 20/07/2017THE CANTILEVER PRINCIPLE
This great photo from 1887 shows the engineers who designed and built the world-famous Forth Rail Bridge in Scotland. A human bridge model was used to demonstrate the cantilever principles behind the bridge.
Comments22/07/2017 #11 Lada 🏡 Prkic#10 I've read the story behind the famous photo. Kaichi Watanabe graduated from the University of Glasgow. When he had returned to Japan, he founded the Japanese railway system.
Ken, thank you for sharing your memories. The bridge is really a magnificent structure and a wonder of the modern world.22/07/2017 #10 Ken BoddieClassic photo, Lada, depicting one of the first Japanese engineers to study and work in Scotland, Kaichi Watanabe, being supported by the famous Forth bridge designers, Fowler and Baker. But for me this picture is more than a historic portrayal, as this imposing structure was something I gazed at in awe every year when my parents told me south by road to Edinburgh and beyond. No road bridge in those days and we had to wait for the ferry to take us across the Firth of Forth. On other occasions I rode the train, as a young boy, across this mighty bridge . Thanks for the memories.21/07/2017 #9 Lada 🏡 Prkic#8 Manjit, I didn't even notice what you pointed about the video. :-)
As a woman in STEM field, I don't see the gender disbalance in my country. Croatia has very positive statistics on this issue. For example, at the Rudjer Boskovic Institute (a leading scientific institute in the natural and biomedical sciences), more than 60% of scientists and researchers are women.
Thanks for the link to TED talk.20/07/2017 #8 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#6 Clay Shirky calls organizing and creating that kind of video as "cognitive surplus" https://www.ted.com/talks/clay_shirky_how_cognitive_surplus_will_change_the_world
The only down point of that video is that it says 8 Guys instead of 8 Students. Since the Maker Movement is a part of 21st Century existence we should highlight that girls should be playing a fundamental part in its growth and development - and there are side projects aimed at ensuring this emerging culture is gender neutral http://ngcproject.org/story/lets-invite-girls-makers-movement20/07/2017 #6 Lada 🏡 Prkic#5 Thank you for sharing and commenting, Manjit. I also find this photo to be informative and inspiring. It's inspiring in the way that there are many novel re-enactments of the Human Cantilever like this one made by students at Università IUAV di Venezia → https://youtu.be/jBdmAyyUnHs
As you said, young people are enjoying tinkering with engineering principles.20/07/2017 #5 CityVP 🐝 ManjitThe maker community will be interested in this and this community is growing again, young people are discovering again what craft is, enjoying tinkering with design and engineering principles. We are too consumed these days with political noise to notice that such a community is on the rise, and it is not just because of the introduction of 3D printing, making is interesting bright people again. What this photograph does is a practical communication of engineering principles that might awaken the curiosity of people whose attention is somewhat distracted by the shenanigans and the marketing of modern media.20/07/2017 #4 Lada 🏡 Prkic#2 Indeed, @Ian Weinberg. The bridge itself is an example of human ingenuity. Today we can't imagine designing even the simple building without the complicated structural design software. But until recently, such structures were a product of human ingenuity, not the computer software. Thanks for commenting. :-)20/07/2017 #3 Lada 🏡 Prkic#1 Thank you, Joanne, for such a beautiful comment. I'm also in awe with this photo and a simple but brilliant representation of the basic physic's principle. It served to convince the skeptics that cantilever concept is the right choice for long-span bridges. Seeing is believing. :-)20/07/2017 #1 Joanne GardockiGreat find, @Lada 🏡 Prkic. There are so many things we take for granted. Sometimes it is hard to remember there was a time when accepted technology (lightbulbs, phone, TV, movies with color and sound) were new and awe-inspiring amazing magic Thank you for the reminder and reconnection to that sense of awe..

This resource extends to nearly 900 pages and that does not even include Steven Wolfram's notes, and the way it has been placed online is the best form of digital navigation I have seen, what a way for him to share his life's work. I am saving this link to my desktop, what a great reference source to have at one's finger tips. Marvelous !
