Chaos Click here to go to Physics Virtual Bookshelf Click here to go to the UPSCALE home page. James Gleick subtitled his popular book Chaos with Making a New Science.

Patent Overview A patent is essentially a limited monopoly whereby the patent holder is granted the exclusive right to make, use, and sell the patented innovation for a limited period of time. The U.S. Patent Act, 35 U.S.C. §§ 1 et seq., was enacted by Congress under its Constitutional grant of authority to secure for limited times to inventors the exclusive right to their discoveries. See Article I, Section 8, Clause 8. Copyright law of the United States The Copyright Law of the United States intends to encourage the creation of art and culture by rewarding authors and artists with a set of exclusive rights. Federal Copyright law grants authors and artists the exclusive right to make and sell copies of their works, the right to create derivative works, and the right to perform or display their works publicly. These exclusive rights are subject to a time limit, and generally expire 70 years after the author's death.
Undocumented Matlab I would like to welcome Chris Parmer of plot.ly, who will describe the integration of Plotly graphs and charts in Matlab. Unlike the open-source JFreeChart and Waterloo plotting libraries that were described here in the past, Plotly is a commercial (not open-source) service. Contact Plotly for the exact license terms and costs. However, as you can see below, there’s a demo account that you can freely use. While I do not directly endorse Plotly as a commercial operation, I love its beautiful visualizations and interactivity.
Dig Deeper into the Scandal Globally, extreme poverty has been halved in 20 years, and could be virtually wiped out by 2030. But much of the progress that has been made is at risk – not because of natural disasters or new diseases, but because of something far more insidious. Analysis by the ONE Campaign suggests that at least $1 trillion is being taken out of developing countries each year through a web of corrupt activity that involves shady deals for natural resources, the use of anonymous shell companies, money laundering and illegal tax evasion. This is not international aid – which is making a tangible difference. Massive sums are being taken out of developing countries’ own economies, preventing them from financing their own fight against extreme poverty, disease and hunger. It is nothing short of a trillion-dollar scandal.
