Mathematics / Recounting the Rationals
« Last post by Unbeliever on June 30, 2018, 03:29:58 PM »
It is well known (indeed, as Paul Erd˝os might have said, every child knows) that the rationals are
countable. However, the standard presentations of this fact do not give an explicit enumeration;
rather they show how to construct an enumeration. In this note we will explicitly describe a
sequence b(n) with the property that every positive rational appears exactly once as b(n)/b(n+1).
Moreover, b(n) is the solution of a quite natural counting problem.

Mathematics / 10,000 Dominoe Computer
« Last post by Unbeliever on June 25, 2018, 05:00:07 PM »

Matt Parker and a team of Domino Computer Builders balanced over 10,000 dominoes in a carefully designed circuit. The result was a Domino Computer capable of automatically adding numbers. It can take any two four-digit binary numbers and return the five-digit binary sum.

It's a computer, made of dominoes.

Technology / Transparent Aluminum - Star Trek Technology is now Real
« Last post by Unbeliever on June 24, 2018, 05:23:51 PM »

ALON - Transparent Aluminum - is a ceramic composed of Aluminium, Oxygen and Nitrogen. Transparent Aluminum, was once pure science fiction, a technical term used in a Star Trek Movie from the 80’s.

In the movie Star Trek 4 The Voyage Home, Captain Kirk and his team, go back in time to acquire 2 whales from the past and transport them back to the future. Scotty needed some materials to make a holding tank for whales on his ship, but had no money to pay for the materials,

So Scotty uses his knowledge of 23 third century technology and the manufacturers computer and programs in, how to make the Transparent Aluminum Molecule.

Transparent Aluminum or Aluminum Oxynitride, also known as ALON, is much stronger than Standard Glass and over time will become cheaper to make, but until then will most likely be used for NASA & the Military.
