Diving into the basin of attraction of the three magnets pendulum results in a chaotic trip, which has philosophical implications.
One of my favorite games on the Commodore 64, The Last Ninja, is the inspiration to this boids simulation, using 15268 boids of 8 different colors.
A three magnet pendulum has chaotic behavior, which can be beautifully visualized and explored. This is the first post on this fractal topic.
Ever wondered at the flowing patterns generated when birds flock together in great numbers? Here we look at simulated boids mimicking flocking behavior.
Malmö shootings have been collected, assembled and are presented in graph form and video to illustrate the development over time since the year 2000.
Objects in motion are part of everyday life, and occupy much of physics. In preparation for future posts, this one will discuss some basic aspects of representing motion.
We discover leading ones and Benford’s law in Swedish locality area numbers. Why is that? The answer is sought in combinatorics.
How do leading ones and Benford's law relate to Swedish locality population numbers? It turns out that growth and decline may hold the key.
Most are familiar with the concept of percentage. Repeated percentage change is less familiar territory for most. Here we look at asymmetry when applying both positive and negative change.
