Good points from Bianca and Richard. Maybe your questions highlight some paths for experimentation while exposing some possible problems. The main one I think is the choice of programming language, and even the questions like what is a program and...
Recently there has been news about this [article][1] in Science. The goal was to find a minimal set of genes that could make a living thing. They used some engineering and some computer experiments in addition to some brute force searching. They...
Diego, no the order is unknown. If the order was known, the NMinimize expression that Okkes Dulgerci was using would return pretty quickly. Frank, that sounds like a good idea. I don't know exactly how to implement it. But the...
Great work! Can you make a short video of the dynamic picture?
Awesome. This should be useful for anyone wanting to connect kids with programming.
Cool. By "easier" do mean that if you can compute the packing of k ellipses in an ellipse, then you can do n+k ellipses in a n-gon with about the same effort? That can't be right, but do you have a sense of what might be?
Nice visualization. It reminds me that I was recently thinking about the moduli space of quadrilaterals, but from the point of view of edge lengths, where for each edge length sequence the moduli parameter is the diagonal. This is a considerably...
Frank, I like this paper. You're probably looking for comments, I just have some minor ones. 1) In the discussion of previous work, it is probably fine that you refer to other papers for historical review, but it could be more clear how...
As part of the [application][1] to the [Wolfram High School Summer Camp][2] (see [this post][3] for more information) we have a problem set to allow applicants to distinguish themselves. I can't post them all here because if anyone answered on the...
