I’ve recently been looking into taking up paragliding and have found that, as a prerequisite, one needs have a basic understanding about the various types of clouds and how they form.
Nonlinear dynamics – pervasive in even the simplest laws of nature – often leads to bewilderingly complex outcomes, just as heard in this 1 of 200 compositions that we’ve created.
A great hero of mine, whilst I was employed as a scientist, was the late Alan Turing. His deeply intuitive ideas have changed the way both science and math look at the world in general.
Sometime back in August 2006 I saw two rather unusual looking pictures that had been published side by side in the New York Times.
The influence of subtle hydration forces on protein folding pathways clearly shows how “nurturing” chaos lies sensitively hidden deep within biological systems here on Earth.
Sometimes simple mathematical expressions yield intricately dazzling visual patterns. One such example is when plotting the roots of run-of-the-mill polynomials.
Planetary rings provide a natural laboratory for investigating dynamical phenomena. In particular, the rings surrounding Saturn have been looked at in high resolution and studied in great detail.
While watching a butterfly dance on each flutter of a wing beat, a melody came to mind to describe its bright and colourful movement through the air…
