Science and math issues that draw my interest and effort.

Electric Usage and Temperature

Figure 3. Temps (blue) given on the left vertical. Electric usage (red) given on the right vertical

When the temperature (blue) is high, the electric use (red) is low. Contrariwise, when the temperature (blue) is low, the electric use (red) is high. They have opposite seasonal trends.

Heating Electricity Usage

I was surprised. This chart of our electricity usage by average outside temperature shows a wide variance in our usage at the same temperature.

MATLAB Excursion

MATLAB Excursion into Neural Networks

My MATLAB excursion, followed a break with a week in the White Mountains and another week at Old Orchard Beach. I found it hard to get directly back to editing my Mental Construction (MC) web site.       Hardware Search To ease back into thinking about neural network processing in the brain, I searched…

Staircase of Science

Winding Staircase, presented as a look through a castle wall

Science has lost of the thread of life going down the staircase, perhaps that’s why it can’t find free will on the way up.

Math And Science Affect How I Think and Write

The energy of activation that must be surmounted for a reaction to occur

When I make an argument or write an essay, it’s math and science that shape my thoughts, much more than the two English classes I took as an undergraduate. Minimal Orthogonal dimensions From vector space theory, construct a set of axioms which span the space of discussion and make those premises independent of each other.…
