Pointless journal pimping


In case anyone missed it, or wants to know more, I posted a blog item today with a link to the first in a series of articles I plan on writing about computational mathematics. It's got a long way to go yet, just give it some time :)

p.s. i just uploaded a new version of the first part (next part coming soon) that is perhaps a bit easier to read, has less mistakes, and has more diagrams to help visualise what's going on! Hope it's helpful

Are you going to continue with the series? I found it informative.
P.S. Do programmers even exist here? I found this site about 3 days ago and the programmer side of things seems dead :(

I like both the articles, please keep them coming. They even convinced me to re-install Matlab from my uni days and start tinkering.

I'm not sure if i can call myself a programmer, but have always enjoyed it, and am hoping to (one day) go through all my matlab studies from engineering (system vibrations, rigid body dynamics etc) and re-learn them to try and work out a way to transfer them to C++, stuff like that. Still learning C++ though; have used a couple of different languages, but not any C languages yet.

Great work, and informative for those who haven't learned differential calculus etc, without needing to go into all the details. Keep 'em coming!

Articles will continue ... !

Sadly I didn't get around to doing much C++ for the first two as it was quicker and easier for me to use Matlab to demonstrate. I am MASSIVELY busy studying honours in applied mathematics, so the rate of articles might be slow :)

So yes look forward to a bit of C++ implementation details, and perhaps an example a little bit more applicable to games. I *might* get around to discussing details about rasterisation and rendering of these kinds of things too if I can sort that out with some of my more graphically-minded programmer friends.
