a restricted path integration method

I propose a restricted path integration method to efficiently simulate a class of quantum systems and Hamiltonians classically and computationally without boundary condition problems. Then the algorithm for the path integral of any bounded error... continue reading

Application of the Central Limit Theorem to dice notation parsing

The Central Limit Theorem (Moivre, 1738) describes how a normal distribution can be used to approximate the sum of identical distributions.

This approximation can be used in optimizations for dice... continue reading

The Strategic Depth Theory of Diversity & Inclusion

It would be easy to assume that the increase in workplace Diversity and Inclusion programs was caused by corporate executives becoming more politically progressive. Is this even true? Per Fos, Kempf, and Tsoutsoura (2022), approximately; 69 % of... continue reading
