Y Hello Thar


Fractions are our friends. Decimals are our lovers.

Dual Classing Scientist


Mathematicians cum Computer Engineers use the word “Ring” to describe a Set of Arrays, as opposed to a Set of Elements. These Sets of Arrays can be [permuted] via reorganization of the Elements in the Arrays, or of the Arrays… Read more…

Game On!


There’s no other feeling in the world like trading card games. Is The Game, “The made up rule sets and powers of the characters and ideas you play with using the cards when gambling,” or is The Game, “The act… Read more…

Mathematical Collision Detection


Calculating collisions in a software graphing engine: 1. Each object in your simulation is represented by a matrix overlayed on a three dimensional grid, defining the space it occupies with points. For this example, let us posit that there are two objects… Read more…

Break Me off a Piece of That


Before petabytes, there were terabytes. Before terabytes, there were gigabytes. Before gigabytes, there were megabytes. Before megabytes, there were kilobytes. Before kilobytes, we probably should have measured in hectobytes and decabytes. Before that, there were just bytes. Within bytes, we should probably… Read more…

Moody Trigonometry


[sin] [cos] [tan] [cot] [sec] [csc] Sin with sin-alike. Alongside one another and together. Separate, and, side by side, complete. [sin]/[cos]=[tan] inv([tan])=[cot] inv([cos])=[sec] inv([sin])=[csc] Apart from one another, together. Not alongside one another, reversed in bearing. Without like-sin, forever bounded. Without sin,… Read more…

Biosymmetrical Mathematical Evolution of Forms, with Incidental Applications


The most inadvertently sexy math problem in existence, if I may say so myself. [link removed](Don’t worry, it wasn’t explicit, just low-quality).                                 If you’re… Read more…

Irrational Numbers Are Stupid and Do Not Exist


In this post, I will be making the claim that all numbers are rational. Please excuse the math, and try to follow along if you can. Without further ado, let us examine this idea further. 1 is rational. .5 is… Read more…
