Povray and Euler

I found a nice plot by Taha on my Google+ page. It uses a software called MathMod. Euler Math Toolbox can do this too teaming with Povray. >load povray; >povstart(zoom=4,distance=6,center=[1,0,0.5],height=45°); >t=linspace(0,1,100); s=t‘; >b=cos(2pi*s)*(t+0.01)+t; c=sin(2pi*s)*(t-0.01); a=t; >X=cos(2pi*a)*(b+0.1); Y=sin(2pi*a)*(b+0.1); Z=c; >writeln(povgrid(X,Y,Z,d=0.03,dballs=0,skip=[20,10])); >povend(); This … Weiterlesen

Translating a Sage Example for EMT

The nice Sage Math project is something I am very interested in. It is a rather complete package for mathematical computations based on Python. If you are interested in open source math this is probably one good way to start. … Weiterlesen

Python in EMT – Cross Sum of Cubes

When is the cross sum (sum of the digits) of the cube of a number equal to the number? It is obviously true for n=0 and n=1. You might be able to find n=8 with the cube 512. Then, how … Weiterlesen

Recursion Formulas

I do not know if I ever wrote about this. But it is a well known theory, anyways. To find a formula for the Fibonacci numbers \(F_{n+1} = F_n + F_{n-1}, \quad F_0 = 0, \quad F_1 = 1\) you … Weiterlesen

About Vectorization

Me being the author of a matrix language, you will be surprised that I do no longer favor the matrix approach in education. In case you do not know what I am talking about: A matrix language avoids loops by … Weiterlesen

Image Processing and Data Evaluation in EMT

There is an example for Euler Math Toolbox (EMT) where I tried to fit curves to a real chain. I then fitted a parabola and a catenary to the points and explained a bit about the catenary. The points where … Weiterlesen

The Bayesian and the Frequentist – III

For another story, I read the following problem on a Google+ site yesterday: You have three cards in your pocket, one with two red sides, one with two blue sides and one with a red and a blue side. You … Weiterlesen

Units in Euler Math Toolbox

Units have long been an integral part of EMT. I want to show you a few examples. First, let us talk about the non-metric system the US is still using. Quote: „Nobody understands the metric system! We use teaspoons!“. >1inch … Weiterlesen

Solving Partition Problems with Linear Programming

Yesterday I promised to show how to solve partition problems with integer linear programming. Let us take the problem of yesterday: We want to split the numbers from 1 to 30 in 10 triplets (x,y,z) such that x+y+z=0 modulo 31. … Weiterlesen
