The Evil Atheist Math Teacher Agenda
Oh man, the folks at ChristWire are on to my wicked plans! They know that I teach ungodly things like “irrational numbers” to my students: Public schools are dens of sin where gothemo girls will try to rub their milk sacs all over your son. But ...
Naming Names in QED
On the theory side, the interesting issue has to do with Sin-Itiro Tomonaga. While Julian Schwinger and Richard Feynman were well connected to the physics community, and invited to the Shelter Island workshop to hear about new developments, Tomonaga was ...
What does the Book of Mormon teach about the Bible? (part 1)
And after he had baptized the Messiah with water, he should behold and bear record that he had baptized the Lamb of God, who should take away the sins of the world." (1 Nephi 10:4-10) One of the most interesting and compelling things taught in the Book of ...
Implementing Cordic Algorithms
If we choose x = 1 and y = 0 and multiply that vector by R a we are left with the vector [cos a, sin a]. What about angles within the domain of convergence? It's not obvious that the strange set we've picked (see Example 1(g)) can represent all angles ...
Treat Code as Data
For example, this bit of code shouldn't seem scary: var num = Math.Sin(Math.PI / 4.0); Do you know whether Math.Sin computes the sine of the angle when you call it? In many libraries, numeric methods like these are implemented using a large lookup table.
