2018 Reading List

By Maurice Ticas

I was very excited to receive my copy of the first issue from this year's 91st Volume edition of the Mathematics Magazine published by Mathematical Association America. From their editorial policy, it's stated that it's not a research journal, but rather a publication that "... aims to provide lively and appealing mathematical exposition". I was introduced to the magazine during my undergraduate studies at SFSU in the mathematics department. I always was able to find an article to be very accessible. More importantly, the magazine's lucid articles encouraged me to appreciate mathematics more. I'll share some remarks of the articles from my current copy that I found to be fun to read.

JMM at San Diego

By Maurice Ticas

All this week San Diego Convention Center is hosting the Joint Mathematical Meeting that is bringing mathematicians across the country under one roof to discuss mathematics. Of course there are many publishers present and products and services being promoted to the mathematics community too.

Attending the conference has encouraged me to do math again. Here what follows is a little math to begin the formal road to linear algebra.

Building a Hi-Fi system

By Maurice Ticas

Hardware and software are put together to build something of practical use. Building a system with hardware and software is an engineering effort worthy of pride. In recent times--with the proliferation of Apple, Google, and Microsoft products--we are encouraged to forget about doing such engineering work for sake of convenience. The big companies have taken all the fun and pride from building systems. Why cook at all when you can go out to eat for every meal when hungry? The same question as it relates to hardware and software can be asked: Why build a system when you can just always look outside of your creative powers to obtain it.

This post will describe the Do-It-Yourself project of building a hi fidelity audio system. We will make note of the hardware and software used to build it. If not an audiophile already, this engineering project will perhaps turn you into one.
