I really like the #paperswelove thing that seems to be happening all around. Instead of discussing a complete paper, I gonna start writing about Theorems I love – and why not start with this real gem: there are infinitely many prime numbers I guess you al[...]

I recently became aware of Codility and it’s easy programming exercises. Now I had fun with a few of them and they all shared a common trait: there was no programming skill involved if you knew the right math (usually undergraduate stuff every CS student [...]

A Monoid is one of the most basic algebraic structures that has many instances and applications in computer science and (functional) programming. And despite it’s scary mathy name it’s really easy to grasp and you are using them already! first example A t[...]

[All code from this post available as a GitHub gist here] For Christmas this year, I got myself a fun mathematical gift: a set of 10 non-transitive dice, namely Grime Dice! You can get your own set here. Behold their dicey splendor: These dice possess the[...]

A while back I came upon a seemingly not-too-difficult programming exercise: Define a recurrence  by Compute . This isn't too hard to code up, using perhaps a recursive function to represent . With normal double-precision floats, as increases, the result [...]

How computationally expensive are various fundamental floating point mathematical operations?  Here's a quick and dirty benchmark, which, although surely quite naive, seems to capture the rough relative cost of a few operations. Motivation This quarter I [...]

Quick intro to categories Category theory is a topic from pure math but don’t fear – the basic stuff is not that hard to grasp. And the domain (Types in programming languagues or Haskell in this case) should be well … Weiterlesen →

Coursera, Udacity, MIT Open Courseware, and other such sites are useful to me because they decouple the desire to learn college-level material from the expense and regulations of earning (another) diploma. The latter isn’t compelling to me today, but the [...]

I wrote a 15*15, NYT-style crossword puzzle for Strange Loop. On the NYT difficulty scale, it’s roughly a Wednesday-level puzzle. However, it was written for Strange Loop and thus does presume familiarity with functional programming and math, and has a fe[...]
