I am a computer scientist working as a data scientist who also loves mathematics. Look here to learn about the computer scientist but stay tuned on this blog to see some of the mathematics and science stuff that fascinates me.
In his article The Value of Science, Richard P. Feynman makes the case that a mathematical view of nature does not diminish its perceived beauty but significantly enhances it. This blog is meant in a similar spirit.
Now, I cannot resist quoting my favorite excerpt from Feynman’s article:
» When we read about this in the newspaper, it says “Scientists say this discovery may have importance in the search for a cure for cancer.” The paper is only interested in the use of the idea, not the idea itself. Hardly anyone can understand the importance of an idea, it is so remarkable. Except that, possibly, some children catch on. And when a child catches on to an idea like that, we have a scientist. It is too late for them to get the spirit when they are in our universities, so we must attempt to explain these ideas to children. «
