Interactive Viz² and Differentiable Machine Learning – Friday Faves

This Friday we’ll have a look at two interactive data viewers and a differentiable ML. Nd Array Viewer Napari is an interactive Nd array Viewer with support for fast inspection and analysis of multidimensional data. Definitely something to pop out in a Jupyter notebook and take a look at the processed data. The Blog Post […]

Cloud Chambers

At the moment I am working on my Master’s thesis. As this is taking up a lot of my resources, I fail at generating more content for this blog. Geophysics related writing goes into the thesis right now. However, I’ve written a short piece on visualizing radioaktive decay in a diffusion cloud chamber. It’s not […]

So two weeks ago the Veritasium Youtube Channel posted a puzzling video involving a gun and a wooden block, but see for yourself: So what do you […]

Wave phenomenae

Within the last days a couple of amazing physics videos have been passed along on Twitter. My personal favorites are the two I want to talk about now. They basically involve some sort of experiment with oscillation or wave-like motion, with a twist. But see the first video for yourself: Coupled pendulums https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqFc4wriBvE Personally I […]
