On March 17, Simon started a series of math and coding projects about COVID-19. The first projects he called Corona Math: Why Social Isolation? This is part I of my … Continue reading Corona Math
Simon has completed the course A New Kind of Science with Stephen Wolfram and the World Science Scholars program. Which doesn’t mean he is done with digging deep into Wolfram’s … Continue reading Live Session with Stephen Wolfram and the Wolfram Demo Project, World Science Scholars.
Link to the interactive project and the code: https://editor.p5js.org/simontiger/sketches/n6-WZhMC3 Simon built a simple cellular automaton (rule 22) model for fracture. He read about this model a couple nights before in … Continue reading Crack Simulation in p5.js
Simon has been enjoying Stephen Wolfram’s huge volume called A New Kind of Science and is generally growingly fascinated with Wolfram’s visionary ideas about the computational universe. We have been … Continue reading Simon’s first steps in Stephen Wolfram’s Computational Universe
Simon explains that the Van Eck Sequence is and shows the patterns he has discovered in the sequence by programming it in Python and plotting it in Wolfram Mathematica. Simon’s … Continue reading The Van Eck Sequence
Simon has tried Matt Parker’s multiplicative persistence challenge on Numberphile: by multiplying all the digits in a large number, looking for the number of steps it takes to bring that … Continue reading Multiplicative Persistence in Wolfram Mathematica
Simon has created the Recaman Sequence audio in Wolfram! First with 70 notes, then with 300 notes.
Simon has been completely carried away by Wolfram Mathematica. He keeps starting new projects, just to try something out. After working on his Knot Theory book for days, and making … Continue reading Domain Coloring with Complex Functions in Wolfram Mathematica
Simon’s new take on cellular automata: Some results would make fancy knitting patters! In case you wonder, what on earth are cellular automata: A cellular automaton (pl. cellular automata, abbrev. CA) is studied in computer … Continue reading Cellular Automata
Simon tried out a new language Wolfram on his RaspberryPi. Wolfram is a programming language that can be used to program 3D print sketches. “With different functions and constants you … Continue reading Wolfram in RaspberryPi
