Some Investigations into:



OK, pull out some paper, pencils, and propositions (?)
I mean, get ready for a few interesting topics in the history of this "language!"

Mathematics for Basic Electronics

New project; only basic formulas and examples for simple DC circuits at this time.
But you'll find notes on how current, voltage, resistance and power are defined under the SI system of Physics.

The Pi (π) Files

Exact and verifiable values of Pi,
Pi Programs and an essay on Pi
( Also includes Facts and Figures about Pi )

"Recreational Math?"


Anyone who regards games simply as games and takes work too seriously has grasped little of either. So wrote the German poet Heinrich Heine over a century ago. In today's world the division of work and play persists. Old prejudice still holds that the playing of games is an activity for children, not useless perhaps, but certainly not the responsible and serious work of adults. Heine intuitively foresaw what [psychologists today have] since asserted. Games are not only necessary for the development of a child's self-awareness; they are also needed by adults, especially when their work is repetitive and uncreative.
...Those games based on mathematical or logical principles... are among the most absorbing and creative.
   Indeed, the great mathematicians and scholars of the past often applied their skills to the solution of logical and mathematical games.

The quote above is from the English version (translated from the Italian by Paul Foulkes) of Math and Logic Games by Franco Agostini (New York: Facts On File, Inc., Copyright © 1983 by Arnoldo Mondadori Editore S.p.A., Milan, Italy), p. 7.
