In this level-0 post, we figure out how many ways we can organize a gift exchange.
In this level-1 post, we take a closer look at Euler’s generalization of the factorial, and see how it makes sense even when it blows up.
In this level 0 post, we will investigate Newton’s method for finding the roots of a function. Then, we will see how this process can induce chaos and find some fractals hidden inside.
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.
In this level 2 post, we start the process of a 3-part mathematical modelling series, which will culminate in the answer to one of the most important questions of all time: How should I cross the street?
You might be wondering what this is all about. This first little post is just to get the ball rolling and talk about what you can expect from this blog.
