    CS 130 Synthesis 

    I guess for me the topics that stood out were actually linear combinations and vectors. Vectors cause they’re already so familiar as having been taught in a lot of my classes and linear combinations cause of the project (I had to restart the process of recording like a million times cause my computer was slowwwww so now the topic was embedded unto my mind).

    I’d summarize the whole classroom experience into one word: “Fun”. I guess that for me is the defining factor of all of Sir Paul’s classes. It’s something that I look forward to every Wednesdays and Fridays cause it’s like we’re just having a very interesting conversation, very different from your typical classroom experience. And I don’t dread the tests as much, as reviewers are provided which for me were so helpful in actually appreciating the course itself rather than stress over if I’m gonna pass or not.

    Parting Message: Good job everyone! Especially to my final project group, and especially to Theo who tried his best to remind everyone the deadlines (and what should be done) and save the project lol

    Kudos to everyone!

    Fourier Transform and one of its Medical Applications

    Image processing has all been used in the study of various fields ranging from biology or to more specific fields like bacteriology. In medicine however Fourier transforms can also be used in the very same image processing tech to study skin lesions. Selected colors in FT images are studied by scientists and experts alike. One specific skin lesion study is that of Melanoma, which is a type of skin cancer.

    In light with what I just cited, we can see the importance of Fourier Transforms and its application in image processing in medicine.

    You can know more about the paper I just read here: http://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007%2F978-3-319-08491-6_16#page-1

    Which includes a more detailed explanation and dwells deeper into the properties of FT and how it is used in the researcher’s study.

    Symmetry in Time Crystals 

    What a time to be alive! To be in the generation that a new proposed physical concept is undergoing a strict proving process to be finalized. The concept is “time crystals”. What might surprise us is that these “time crystals” are no longer just a a concept. Two groups from the University of Maryland and Harvard University have already reported their success in producing them.

    But where does symmetry play in all of these? You see some objects in reality are symmetrical in space. But here we are talking about Time Symmetry, a concept that takes too long to explain. But let’s focus on the word “crystals”. Why are they called “Time Crystals”? Surely they can be called anything but why “Crystals”? The answer to these questions is that crystals are asymmetric in nature (specifically in space), in accordance to that Time Crystals are assymetric in both TIME and SPACE.

    For time crystals the laws of nature don’t change with time, but the time crystals themselves change as it chooses a ground-state motion which spontaneously breaks TTS or (the time traversal symmetry). This is an object that has an anomaly in time, IN TIME. This is something to really look forward to hearing about.

    This should be really interesting as if all goes well in their production we can use them as information drives (like flash drives, you should read on how they work). They may not last forever in storage (kasi walang forever) but it’s certainly longer than our concept of forever.

    Vectors in Prosthetic Research 

    Vectors are actually used in the research in making prosthetics. Being a very useful way of modeling certain movements in the muscles and the actual forces a real body can make, vectors are used to model the “proper” movement of a body part. This constitutes the different forces a body part makes when it hits the ground, when it is idle, and it is used to fulfill its main function. It’s way more interesting today as robotics are slowly being integrated in prosthetics research. Using vectors as raw data, a robotic arm can simulate a “natural grip”, being able to hold an object with limited force not enough to break it. Each step in the function of a prosthetic leg was made possible by stress vectors extracted from a test using an actual human leg.

    Hi Friend! (Week 1) 

    What’s your name?
    My name is Jan Carlo Gutierrez Albano, I go by JC.

    What were your thoughts when you enrolled in this course?
    I was filled with unrelenting fear as 130 has a “3” in it meaning it’s one of those subjects that you have to strategically avoid taking simultaneously with another “3” numbered course.

    I enjoyed the first day though, never watched the Amazing World of Gumball cause #adventuretimemasterrace

    How comfortable are you with math?
    I think, having already lived for 19 years, it has come to my attention that, I’m not that good with Math,but hey I like the subject and there’s me having the amazing ability of knowing how to code.I have that going for me which is nice.

    What’s your dominant feeling right now?
    Chill~ reading a ten page article as homework, preparing for the heart attacks life may(will) bring, oh and trying to be successful in life by submitting to general capitalism.
