Ralph Abraham Ralph H. Abraham (b. July 4, 1936, Burlington, Vermont) is an American mathematician. He has been a member of the mathematics department at the University of California, Santa Cruz since 1968. Life and work[edit] Ralph Abraham earned his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in 1960, and held positions at UC Santa Cruz, Berkeley, Columbia, and Princeton. He founded the Visual Math Institute[1] at UC Santa Cruz in 1975, at that time it was called the "Visual Mathematics Project". Abraham has been involved in the development of dynamical systems theory in the 1960s and 1970s. Another interest of Abraham's concerns alternative ways of expressing mathematics, for example visually or aurally. Abraham developed an interest in "Hip" activities in Santa Cruz in the 1960s and set up a website gathering information on the topic.[3] He credits his use of the psychedelic drug DMT for "swerv[ing his] career toward a search for the connections between mathematics and the experience of the Logos".[4]

Zentangle® Hi All, I know this isn't watercolor, although I do combine it with watercolors sometimes, but I'm answering the question that was raised in this morning's "WASH" as to what zentangle® is. I've become a Certified Zentangle Teacher, or CZT, since I used to hang around here in WC and I just wanted to post this somewhere where those who asked the question as to what zentangle® is would see the answer. (My making anywhere near beginning of the "Daily Wash" thread is a rarity.) Yes, as someone said, and to put it simply, zentangle® is a meditative form of art using repetitive patterns. Tangles are basically done on 3.5" X 3.5" tiles with a micron pen, no artistic talent needed. And here is a zentangle® inspired piece of artwork, or as it's called in the tangling world, a ZIA, that I began by dropping watercolors onto Strathmore bristol paper. And a few done with a watercolor base on a zentangle® tile. I'm really just answering the question asked.

The 'Infinity Room': One of Many Ways to Imagine Infinity | Artists, Physicists, Mathematicians and Philosophers Contemplate Infinity As I stepped into the Infinity Environment on Wednesday morning (Feb. 1), I heard faint gasps from those around me. With apprehension, we entered a stark white, brilliantly lit room with no edges. The curved walls and angled lighting minimized shadows, giving the illusion that we were staring into a continuum. With no visual reference points anywhere in the room, my eyes flickered about, desperate for something to focus on; it was impossible to tell how far space extended, if at all. In seeming infinite, space ceased to exist beyond my eyelashes and nose. "There is no other time in your life when you will look out and see nothing at all," one young woman, an art student, whispered. The Infinity Environment, an art piece by Doug Wheeler, is currently on display at the David Zwirner Gallery in New York City. Art is one way to grapple with infinity. "Or, if your measuring device is the range finder on a camera, then the warehouse would have to be much bigger to seem effectively infinite.

Art for ants Anamorphic 3D Illusion Drawings The Italian artist Alessandro Diddi questions the point of view and the relevance of the look at things we can have through its anamorphose. From the point of view that one takes, sketches made ​​in pencil appear to be three dimensional. Some incredible trompe l’oeil to discover in images. Four color theorem Example of a four-colored map A four-coloring of a map of the states of the United States (ignoring lakes). In mathematics, the four color theorem, or the four color map theorem, states that, given any separation of a plane into contiguous regions, producing a figure called a map, no more than four colors are required to color the regions of the map so that no two adjacent regions have the same color. Despite the motivation from coloring political maps of countries, the theorem is not of particular interest to mapmakers. Three colors are adequate for simpler maps, but an additional fourth color is required for some maps, such as a map in which one region is surrounded by an odd number of other regions that touch each other in a cycle. The four color theorem was proven in 1976 by Kenneth Appel and Wolfgang Haken. Precise formulation of the theorem[edit] The intuitive statement of the four color theorem, i.e. Example of a map of Azerbaijan with non-contiguous regions History[edit]

A mathematical bug shows us why the 3D universe leads to Murphy's Law Let's also not forget that unlike, a path, the movement of any string no matter how thin is at least partially governed by the slight recoiling that occurs at the bends and curves. I think analogies are wonderful for explaining complex systems to simple folk like myself, but I hate it when "scientists" try to prove a mathematical system with an insufficient metaphor. Exactly what I was thinking. The way a string falls is not random. Even if you stood there shaking the box it still has all manner of constraints based on where parts of the string both forward and backward from each position are. Like if you have a spiral, and you imagine this bugs walk is from the top spiralling down, this bug cannot actually walk directly downwards because another part of the spiral is already there, no matter how much you try to randomise it with shaking.

Photos: Amazed southern Chinese experience first snowfall ever, make teeny-tiny snowmen Just as the US’s eastern coast was hit by a historical blizzard over the weekend, China suffered its coldest weather in decades. On Sunday (Jan. 24) morning, 25 cities across the country registered record low temperatures. The chill swept across the country last week, but is lifting today (Jan. 25), according to the National Meteorological Center (link in Chinese): The cold wave brought plenty of excitement for southern Chinese citizens, many of whom have never seen sleet—needless to say snow—in their lives. Southern Chinese cities including Chongqing, the “Flower City” of Guangzhou, and the so-called “Green City” of Nanning saw snow mixed with rain over the weekend for the first time in decades. Residents in downtown Guangzhou were particularly amazed, because the city’s sleet on Sunday was the first since 1949 (link in Chinese), when China started keeping meteorologic records. The popsicle-sized snowmen are apparently worth commemorating:
