26/10/2016Évariste Galois (French: [evaʁist ɡaˈlwa]; 25 October 1811 – 31 May 1832) was a French mathematician born in Bourg-la-Reine. While still in his teens, he was able to determine a necessary and sufficient condition for a polynomial to be solvable by radicals, thereby solving a problem standing for 350 years. His work laid the foundations for Galois theory and group theory, two major branches of abstract algebra, and the subfield of Galois connections. He died at age 20 from wounds suffered in a duel.

20/09/2016The National Gallery in London ► An example of the use of the golden ratio (φ) in architecture.

The mathematics of the golden ratio and of the Fibonacci sequence are interconnected. That is why the golden ratio is typically presented as a Fibonacci spiral which approximates the golden spiral, using Fibonacci sequence square sizes up to 34.

And thank you so much for those words of appreciation...truly ! Yes Sir, I will be reading your latest shortly...also wanted to convey that the earlier buzz on Form has a twin too...a smaller offshoot, a rider perhaps, that sprung up from fractal vortex while I was connecting the dots. WIP. Shall share it soon.25/08/2016 #1 Ali AnaniDear @Praveen Raj Gullepalli- my friend you buzzed my heart out (to steal the expression of the adorable @Pamela L. Williams). This is a fractal buzz and by this I mean of beauty. The beauty of of your dedication, the beauty of your thinking and the beauty of your perspective to fractals. You wrote "Where the Fractals interface smoothly, they merge to form a seamless fabric of tangible, harmonic expression and being. Where they do not, there is Chaos". This requires deep thinking, but I love your saying how the intangible leads to the tangible.

I am so glad that I have my name mentioned in your beautiful post. Equally pleases I am as we both wrote about fractals today. See my friend how your buzz integrate with my buzz of today "The Fractal AMbassador" and you shall be pleased. - Producer

11/09/2016 #20 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#7 #13 Great Job on adding the link. I also try to add links in my emails, to facilitate immediate action. Works! ;)11/09/2016 #19 Lada Prkic#18 You are right, Ben. I am just saying that these expressions of Φ are the solutions to quadratic equation Φ^ - Φ – 1 = 0.

Phi also occurs in geometry of a regular pentagon. Connecting all the points of the pentagon and forming 5-pointed star we have triangles with sides 1 and Φ, and angles of 36 (18), 54 and 108 (54) degrees.

Based on the relations between sides and angles of these triangles we have following expressions for Φ:

Φ = sin (54°) x 2 or cos (36°) x 2

Φ = 1/ (2 x sin 18°) or 1/ (2 x cos 72°)

Perhaps we can create a new hive about golden ratio, Fibonacci numbers and other related subjects. 😊10/09/2016 #17 Lada Prkic#14 @Ben Pinto, tag was not working, it's OK now. I am also amazed by the golden ratio.10/09/2016 #16 Lada PrkicDear Pinto, exact value of ϕ is (1+√5) / 2, i.e., 1.6180339887...... . This is the solution to quadratic equation ϕ^- ϕ -1=0 derived from specific ratio between two numbers a/b = (a+b)/a = ϕ

13/08/2016 #16 Edward Smith#3 @Gerald Hecht, of course you know he math! 😂 I read Chaos when I was in my twenties. Extremely fascinating. I agree with your point. When I take in the beauty of fractal art, I do not think about the mathematical process. The math which creates such beauty is another art to behold all unto itself. However, I find the center, the point of initial contact and imagine the beautiful synchronous expression from that single point in space. To me, that is he beauty of art and why it is vital to keep supporting arts education. Studying the arts provides the fertile ground for creative thought, which is vital to further advance science.13/08/2016 #15 Gerald Hecht#11 @Vincenzo De Florio Thank you for the kind words!

Thank you very much @Anees Zaidi. Some thoughts already published elsewhere here again...I used to write about self-similar concept. Fractals can be exactly the same at every scale (self-similar and self-replicative), but also nearly the same at different levels. Only in the first case they are exactly self-similar. But also there are the following possibilities: Quasi Self-Smilarity, like the Mandelbulb, which I use as a picture in my Twiter account (partial copies), Multifractal System (with the different fractal dimensions) which corresponds to a society where individuals could be completely self-similar, but with different fractal dimensions (like Anees Zaidi and Milos Djukic in this particular case:)), and finally the most obscure aspect connected with Statistical Self-Similarity which reflect the most current state of social structure in which randomly generated fractals (humans) have a chance to make a new Renaissance, which is far from totalitarian single-mindedness as expressed in Star Trek Borg Collective model, Equilibrium movie by Kurt Wimmer, Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell, Kafka's "Der Process" or in "The Brave New World" by Aldous Huxley.**Mathematics Documentary | Decoding the Language of the Universe | History Films**Mathematics Documentary | Decoding the Language of the Universe | History Films.

28/05/2016**What if?**I am sure you probably asked yourself this question at least once in your professional life and perhaps more in your personal one. But have you ever really investigated your “what if”? More than likely, you have not. Often our “what if” would...Comments

28/05/2016 #2 Charles David UpchurchHi, Jeff. This takes me back to my time at MCI/WorldCom (now part of Verizon). When I was a Network Engineer (a remote tester and troubleshooter) at what was called the Global Data Test Center - East, mean time to repair (MTTR) was a primary metric against which we measured ourselves.28/05/2016 #1 Paul "Pablo" CroubalianI started doing what-ifs on spreadsheets back in Visicalc days, and I never stopped. Spreadsheets are probably the most useful part of an "office" suite. I even use Excel to build SQL commands - Producer

27/05/2016**Watch the Anchor**Going back to basic maths at school, you would agree that 8x7x6x5x4 gives the same answer as 4x5x6x7x8. Yet in an experiment where two groups of people were given these two sets separately, those that saw the 8 first in the sequence estimated the...Comments

11/08/2016 #14 CityVP Manjit#13 Dear Henri, yes from a personal practice but also to notice unintended consequence and application of practice we may never have assumed as having a dystopian effect, and this is not a formulation to distrust good intentions but be wise about the way a few scrupulous human beings seek personal advantage, where spiritual practice itself can become more egotistical than non-spiritual practice, in short embrace surprise and delight but not be disillusioned by failing to see the hairy arse side of society. http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2014/01/the-dark-side-of-emotional-intelligence/282720/11/08/2016 #13 Henri Galvão#12 that's a very good reminder, Manjit. Sometimes it's far too easy to practice such techniques without considering their effects on others11/08/2016 #12 CityVP Manjit#11 I do have a purchased copy of Robert Cialdini's book Influence and part way in I could not figure out whether I was transforming into a modern day Machiavelli or Rasputin while reading it. Fortunately I got the gist and I was spared the desire for creating an intervention called the Holy Order of Neurolinguistic Programming or delve into the launching of the Master Apprentice of Mindfulness Coaching, both highly motivating ideas that sum up the saying "a little knowledge is a dangerous thing". Yes anchoring is real but just like gaming emotional intelligence tricks I don't know at what point one has acquired enough emotional trickery to register as a professional magician or when to just accept that my self-awareness might just have been anchored as I continue to discover my anchors. Of course we are the good guys so we use our newly acquired powers for doing good and thus observe the "Law of Spiderman" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKmQW7JTb6s10/08/2016 #11 Henri GalvãoThank you for this text, Gert. Not only because it was very informative, but also your suggestion on thinking of a range - instead of a specific number - is something I'll try to remember more often.

By the way, I guess another way to describe this would be to say that it's the principle of contrasting in action, as Robert Cialdini puts in his classic book Influence.25/07/2016 #10 Gerald Hecht#9 @Ken Boddie Google is ultimately run by humans. Humans, by definition are always "being" in a state of all kinds of anchoring effects with regard to just about every aspect of their lives...@Gert Scholtz examples are just that...little surface scratching glimpses into how biased we are always...it is actually much worse in folks who practice "mindfulness" and other such crap...it's neither good nor bad...it's who we are; balls to bone...it's an interesting aspect of perception. https://katesharpernews.wordpress.com/2016/03/20/book-of-the-week-capture-david-a-kessler-m-d/25/07/2016 #9 Ken BoddieReally interesting buzz, @Gert Scholtz, but the 'Spock' in me says that "it's not logical". Since, of course, logic has little to do with how we behave, perhaps the bottom line is don't estimate it, Google it? 🤓24/07/2016 #8 Anees ZaidiInteresting read @Gert Scholtz. Sales promotion Is an example of anchoring effect where promotional items on discounted rates are prominently displayed at the shop's entrance to bring in the prospective customers.24/07/2016 #7 Gerald Hecht@Gert Scholtz now I'm gonna be biting my nails for a couple of weeks as I've just prepared lectures and accompanying psychometric/psychophysics demos on this (which I thought were very clever for 18yr olds entering the strange world known as "Introduction to Psychophysics and it's Concomitant Neurophysiological Foundations"...at least you didn't go into the Neurophysiology --uh oh...I prolly shouldn't have mentioned that, another lol!24/07/2016 #6 Gerald Hecht@Gert Scholtz very good except that...I NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT MY INCOMING UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS DONT KNOW THIS YET, lol!27/05/2016 #5 John WilliamsA way to avoid the anchoring effect? Well, maybe in the example of the car to look for a way of comparing it with the four cars at the same time, although I don't know if there would still be 2 anchors now instead of one. I don't know, this article is making me think about how to take advantage of the anchor effect in sales but at the same time being a better buyer. Great one there @Gert Scholtz27/05/2016 #3 Gert Scholtz#1 @Dean Owen. I guest-lecture on negotiation and persuasion at business schools with a focus on how the mind works. Most of what I teach is based on the relatively new fields of neuroscience and behavioral economics, which I find fascinating. Thank you for reading and commenting!27/05/2016 #2 Michelle WrightReally interesting articles @Gert Scholtz, thanks so much for posting. I've certainly encountered on multiple occasions with regards to empathising with other people's perspectives that it trumps that of my own.27/05/2016 #1 Dean OwenThis is fascinating @Gert Scholtz. I would have loved to attend the class you guest lectured and dive into the secrets of how to give the impression that your product is a bargain (other than offering it at $9.99). Do you mentor entrepreneurs? #### Graham Smith
