The Demons that Haunted Maxwell

In this level-0 post, we take a look at some interesting thought experiments in thermodynamics, in particular the various incarnations of Maxwell’s demon. These were constructed as possible ways to subvert the second law of thermodynamics, and here we will talk about why they don’t.

Crossing the Street – Pt. 3

In this final part to our level 2 mathematical modelling series, we move to a different way of solving our street crossing problem: numerics. We go over discretization of the problem, how to simulate it, and compare with results from part 2.
