First, let me tell you about the newsletter button I added :D . You can subscribe to get notified when I post :). It’s down and right, please feel compelled to press it :D .
The road to wisdom?—Well, it’s plain

The above words are from a grook I like.
Sometimes I spend all day trying to count
the leaves on a single tree. To do this I
have to climb branch by branch and
write down the numbers in a little book.
So I suppose, from their point of view,
it’s reasonable that my friends say: what

But it’s not. Of course I have to give up,
but by then I’m half crazy with the wonder
of it — the abundance of the leaves, the
quietness of the branches, the hopelessness
of my effort. And I am in that delicious
and important place, roaring with laughter,
full of earth-praise.

I enjoyed great walks in the park, but naturally I started thinking about: what would it take for a machine to detect leafs in a picture. I actually don’t know how natural this thought is :)) but I said it’s a good problem for the weekend, brushing up on my maths and maybe if I could write it in a tutorial manner it could help somebody.
This article will not be about poems, of course, but instead it will be about implementing a technique that enables you to get to where you want to be :). Following the MUI article I felt like I needed to do something about nonlinear optimizations.

x and y represent any character strings and M, U, I represent the actual letters, the arrow may be read as “becomes”.
For example the first rule can be read: Any string that ends in M becomes M and two times the reminder.
Try it, I will be waiting here :).

This is about circle parametrization. Check the google spreadsheet here
In programming and engineering in general we need to generate circles or circle like shapes. Often we need the circle points for all kinds of stuff, like drawing or object placement or procedural generation, interpolation etc. Let’s take a …
