George, Your points are well taken, especially wrt computation being used to create art, music, or literature. My own interests, though, are to use computation as a tool to study the humanities. My K-12 experience with history was as you...
There are two very nice features to this solution that I would like to point out. First, by using an Association (the symbol **dataset** in the code) and AssociateTo, the size of the result can grow incrementally with no performance penalty for...
I modified the function delta to take 2 lists of numbers, rather than just 2 numbers, and now the function works as expected, as does the optimization. Regarding fitting spectra in general, I was actually thinking of fitting the actual line shape...
Nice post with good guidelines! The varying vertex size and varying edge colors tend to give the illusion of 3D, at least to me. I used to do a lot of molecular modeling, and while the graph example in the post is not a model for a real molecule,...
more likely using Kragle ;-) But that's a good catch, and probably easily "fixed" by using a finer resolution.
Very cool, Vitaliy! Page-by-page analysis is one of the easiest ways to track the evolution, but I would think using chapters or paragraphs might be more meaningful. Dialog, of course, makes for very short paragraphs, and some authors’ chapters...
Beautiful work, especially the use of color! Roman Maeder pubished an article in *The Mathematica Journal* in 1993 on uniform polyhedra. There are probably many more examples with equilateral triangle or 30° rhombus faces that could be done.
Very nice example of using ProgressIndicator within Monitor, Chris! Bob
Ausgezeichnet, Grisha! I was faced with a similar problem not too long ago, and your method is much more complete and far surpasses my meager efforts. The method would work well for wrting on almost any medium, so I would imagine it would be very...
The 3rd element of a tick specification is the pair {plen, mlen}, where plen is the length in the positive direction (i.e., inside for frame ticks), and mlen is the length in the negative direction (i.e., outside for frame ticks). So, create one’s...
