Dear computational mathematicians, scientists and engineers,

Hypothetically, suppose you had a web-based scientific computing service at your disposal. You could send it a numerical problem, which it would solve efficiently and stream the results back to you. Further imagine that the communication both ways is in some pleasant and standard representation, allowing e.g. interactive visualization on your tablet or phone.

Are you working on a problem that you feel will benefit from the existence of such technology? Do you know colleagues that might?

In an attempt to preserve these memories beyond the eventual shutting down of online social networking sites such as this, baby-related news will happen on the newly-retooled family blog: http://narayanan.co/

Enjoy!

We were informed by the local town hall that our baby’s birth isn’t considered official until it’s posted on Google+.[1, 2]

And so, we present to you baby Hugo!

[1] Who am I kidding? That joke barely worked even when I tried it on Facebook.
[2] The open web we've long lost blah blah...

Excellent talk that articulates my thoughts on this topic so much more eloquently than I ever have.

I miss the old web.

He pines ironically as he types this into a Google+ input form.

Over the past months, I’ve completed a sequence of Classical Mechanics courses that, together, have composed the most beautiful educational experience I’ve had. I cannot recommend these courses highly enough if you're into this sort of thing.

Beginner: To whet your appetite

Physics I: Classical Mechanics by Walter Lewin
http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/physics/8-01-physics-i-classical-mechanics-fall-1999/

Intermediate: To start fathoming the beauty of abstract theory

Classical Mechanics by Leonard Susskind
http://theoreticalminimum.com/courses/classical-mechanics/2011/fall

Extreme: To truly blow your mind

Classical Mechanics: A Computational Approach by Gerald Sussman and Jack Wisdom
http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/earth-atmospheric-and-planetary-sciences/12-620j-classical-mechanics-a-computational-approach-fall-2008/
