“It only makes sense to seek out and identify structures of authority, hierarchy, and domination in every aspect of life, and to challenge them; unless a justification for them can be given, they are illegitimate, and should be dismantled, to increase the scope of human freedom.” (Noam Chomsky, as cited by Kangding Ray) A second…

Nebulo - Castles

Review: nebulo – Castles.

Thought out. Even better, they all make sense together. I would call this ‘horizontal integration’. There is also vertical integration. From the smallest…

In his own words, producer Kevin Jamey now wanted to make ‘happy’ music. We would expect even more fun, even more daring psycho-acoustic exploration…

Creation/Destruction Gillespie Simulation.

Simple Example of Gillespie Algorithm in MatLab

Here is another simple example of the implementation of a Gillespie algorithm in MatLab. It is again for the students of our course “Topics in the Physical Basis of Physiology”. I can highly recommend the course, it is one of the few that successfully combines “real” Physiology and Biology (not just toy models) and “real”…

Simple Stochastic Simulation in MatLab

Currently I am doing some Teaching Assistance for an advanced Math Biology / Biophysics class. Wanting to point our students towards a simple example of a Gillespie algorithm (check references by Gillespie and textbooks for a description of the algorithm)  in MatLab, I found that google served up one fully developed set of boxed functions…
