Google Uses qCraft To Teach Quantum Physics
2013-10-21 10:47:40

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Google released a new mod for the popular building game Minecraft over the weekend which aims to teach players the most basic aspects of quantum physics. Called “qCraft,” the Google mod (modification) is less of a full-blown quantum physics simulator and more of a introductory course. While exploring in this new area of the video game, players can experiment with concepts like quantum entanglement, superposition and observer...

Applied Mathematics
2014-01-02 10:00:11

Applied mathematics is a branch of mathematics that focuses on mathematical methods that are usually used in science, engineering, business, and industry. Therefore, “applied mathematics” is a mathematical science with specialized knowledge. The term “applied mathematics” also explains the professional specialty in which mathematicians work on practical problems; as a profession focused on practical problems, applied mathematics focuses on the formulation and study of mathematical...

Algorithm
2013-12-16 10:46:30

In mathematics and computer science, an algorithm is a step-by-step procedure for calculations. Algorithms are used for calculations, automated reasoning, and data processing. An algorithm is an effective technique expressed as a finite list of well-defined instructions for calculating a function. Starting from an initial state and an initial input, the instructions describe a computation that, when executed, proceeds through a finite number of well-defined successive states and eventually...

Thorvald Nicolai Thiele was born on December 24, 1838 and died on September 26, 1910. He was a famous mathematician, astronomer and statistician. He is best known for the interpolation and three body problem. He was the first to hypothesize Brownian motion which was derived from his study of cumulants. He founded the Hfnia Insurance Company and acted as their Mathematical Director. He also led the way for the organization of the Danish Society of Actuaries.

  • A terrible or repulsive person.
Regarding the etymology of 'humgruffin,' the OED says (rather unhelpfully) that it's a 'made-up word.' We might guess that 'hum' comes from 'humbug' or possibly 'hum' meaning 'a disagreeable smell,' while 'gruffin' could be a combination of 'gruff' and 'griffin.'
