Doodling - it helps lots of us to think, but this video proves there is more to space filling fractal curves than meets the eye.
Fractals - don't you just love em.
But it can sometimes be a pain to have to pull out the Mandelbrot viewer or write some code just to explore a self-similar curve. So let's settle back and enjoy a few minutes with Vi Hart who seems to have a fascination with, and a knack of drawing, fractal squiggles as a way of learning more math in class than listening to the lecturer ever would.
The subtitle to this video is; "How to draw squiggles like a Hilbert" - raises the very interesting question of did Hilbert doodle and if so is that how he invented the space-filling Hilbert curve?
Your next mission is to find a way to make the Riemann hypothesis understandable and interesting in a five minute video.
Six degrees of separation is the, already well established, idea that any individual is connected to any other via six network nodes. New research has discovered that the average between Facebook user [ ... ]
One of the fun things about being a programmer is that algorithms that you know can often be applied in unexpected ways in areas that are the domain of other specialists. A good example is the traveli [ ... ]
