"Each hour, a myriad of trillions of little live things - microbes, bacteria, the peasants of nature - are born and die, not counting for much except in the bulk of their numbers and the accumulation of their tiny lives. They do not perceive deeply, nor do they suffer. A hundred trillion, dying, would not … Continue reading Closures. Thinking about “Blood Music”.
So, the CAMBAM student chapter also recently wrote this contribution to the Society of Mathematical Biology Newsletter. It explains the basics of the student chapter's goals, approaches, and successes up to now.
This is a piece that Romain Yvinec and me wrote up about the SMB conference held 2010 in Rio. That was one fun trip, great great conference, and also a great city to spend a week or two in!Read the review on page 4 to 5 of the the SMB newsletter 23(3)...
Last Wednesday, April 18, a group of CAMBAM graduate and postdoctoral students (all undergrads were held down by finals) from McGill and Université de Montréal made over to the LBUM (Laboratoire de Ultrasonographie et Biorheologie de Montréal) for a whole day on-site visit. Fred Simard, who is part of our CAMBAM student chapter team, organized … Continue reading CAMBAM students visit to the Montreal Ultrasound and Biorheology lab (CHUM)
sudo kate /etc/modprobe.d/thinkpad_acpi.conf added the line: "options thinkpad_acpi fan_control=1" This was the very, very strange solution to a very, very strange problem that plagued my (otherwise wonderful) Lenovo Thinkpad T410, I finally found it in a post on http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-836958.html Here is what happened: I am frequently running extensive (hours), heavy scientific computations (full load on … Continue reading An odd solution: Thinkpad T410 i7 M620 CPU over heating, Ubuntu 10.04
I have known Groj, or Kevin Jamey rather, for a good three years now, as long as I know my new home Montréal. In fact, he was one of the first people I got to know arriving, and I am happy to still know him - and that still he didn't simply move away. I … Continue reading Album (p)review: Groj – promised land
The logistic map is maybe the most-often used example system for the transition from periodic behavior to chaotic behavior. It's simple to understand, simple to treat on paper and in the computer, but the behavior is rich and various, see picture. Now, for some time I was wondering if there would not be a way … Continue reading Audible chaos: live audio sampling from logistic map using pure data and python.
