Doing a sort of gigantic parallel computation in Mathematica. A little too gigantic, I’m afraid. Um- can IT deliver my new MacPro sooooon? Pleeeeease?

I was trying to figure out why there were shading artifacts on a 3D object I created for some vision experiments. I’ve got a metric-ton of Mathematica I’ve written over the years for doing computational geometry and it stood… Read More

Back in 1987 I wrote some code for generating ‘noisy objects’. I cleaned up that code over the years, enhanced some calculations, played with new Mathematica features. Now I’ve got stuff that looks like this. I’ll put a… Read More

A friend of mine asked me a question about the way that standing waves make sand on a 2D plate make pretty patterns. So, I whipped up a quick 1D example in Mathematica. I threw 50 randomly distributed… Read More

A stimulus, # 13, otherwise known as ‘golden boy’ Colors indicate mapping of under- and over-sculpt from a shape production experiment where we had artists and non-artists reproduce shapes using only vision, touch, or some combination of both… Read More

A set of motion-capture trajectories for the Anticipation of Sabre Fencing Attacks paper by Pete Possidente and I. You can see the ‘whip’ of the tip of the sabre at the end of the attack (green dots on… Read More

A volume rendering (again, via Mathematica) of some developing neural structures in zebrafish. With Aaron Beck and Jen Bonner @ Skidmore.

I notice that I seem to generate a lot of images while doing analysis, largely using Wolfram Research’s Mathematica… so, maybe every day I should post one of those images here- an image of something I’m working on,… Read More
