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
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

Ecological awareness and respect for living organisms must be the main objectives of education. Universities have to promote the understanding of the impact of One Health (good health for people is not possible without good health for animals and... continue reading
Rayleigh pitot tube formula is a very basic and commonly used formula in aerodynamics. It gives the rate of the total pressure behind a normal shock wave and the pressure of freestream at a given Mach number. Although the relation is rigorous in... continue reading
The Mordvin languages, Erzya and Moksha, have as many as eight moods, including the Conj(unctive), and Ind(icative). Both languages have two Ind preterites (Prt1, Prt2) and a non-past. In Erzya, Prt2 and Conj have distinct morphology, whereas, in... continue reading
Self-driving labs are the future; however, the capital and expertise required can be daunting. We introduce the idea of a constrained, high-dimensional, multi-objective optimization task for less than $100, a square foot of desk space, and an hour... continue reading
There have been a few open-source projects that are aimed at qualitative data analysis (e.g. Taguette).
But, I haven't seen one with especially the extensibility concept in mind. It would be very nice if there
could be a data analysis software... continue reading
Conventional heat pumps use mechanical work to exchange heat, against a temperature gradient, between two reservoirs that are spatially displaced; ie heat is removed at one location and discharged at another. An alternative approach which has not... continue reading
