• Applied category theory, Fall Western Sectional Meeting of the AMS, 4-5 November 2017, U.C. Riverside.

This is going to be fun.

My former student Brendan Fong is now working with David Spivak at MIT, and they’re both coming. My collaborator John Foley at Metron is also coming: we’re working on the CASCADE project for designing networked systems.

]]>above, it seems the minting gets also increasingly energy costly. The New York Times has an article with photos about a minting factory:

In China’s Hinterlands, Workers

Mine Bitcoin for a Digital Fortune.

Would be interesting to compare the energy costs for minting and for transactions.

]]>Here and are so-called ‘overlay’ and ‘connect’ operations that are defined on simple networks as:

The application of the operation to the arguments is then simply , which gives you the right result.

Not sure how useful this observation is! :)

P.S.: The above ‘overlay’ and ‘connect’ operations have a simple equational theory: https://github.com/snowleopard/alga-paper/releases/download/final/algebraic-graphs.pdf

]]>Maybe you changed something like your email address or… something.

No I didn’t change anything. Apparently all of my comments need now to be approved…..

Anyways thanks for approving. Unfortunately my comment is not so easily to understand without the scatterplot. I wasn’t sure how safe it is to post the plot. For the use of data it was mentioned that one can use it if one mentions the source (i.e. NASA), but for the scatterplots? Did you understand what I was talking about in the comment?

If it happen a phase transition, where the numbers of edges (less of 100 kilometers) is large enough to allow long-range communication and rescue (I am thinking that little perturbation of the ships configuration give the same statistical phase), then the rescue would be probable: if a statistical description could be possible, then the number of the rescue boat could be adapted to the number of ships, and some lives could be saved. ]]>

I had written a comment here yesterday, which explains more.

But I hope it is not inevitable lost. John, what happened to the comment? ]]>
