Vedic Mathematics: My Trip to India to Uncover the Truth – Alex Bellos

One day on YouTube, Alex Bellos saw a video of an amazing mathematical “trick”. He wanted to know more about this ‘Vedic Mathematics’, so he got on a plane to India. This is a lecture about his journey that touched on mathematics, mysticism, Indian history, nationalism and culture. The transcript and downloadable versions of the full conference are available from the on the Gresham College website: www.gresham.ac.uk GreshamCollege has been giving free public lectures since 1597. This tradition continues today with all of our five or so public lectures a week being made available for free download from our website. www.gresham.ac.uk

Mandelbrot Fractal Set Trip To e214 by teamfresh

www.hd-fractals.com Originally posted on www.vimeo.com Here is a nice deep zoom into the Mandelbrot set. The words “nice” and “deep” fall a bit short actually. “Mathematical Porn” is a better description. After watching this video things in my room started to bend and breathe!! I hope you enjoy the trip!! The final magnification is e.214. Want some perspective? a magnification of e.12 would increase the size of a particle to the same as the earths orbit! e.21 would make a particle look the same size as the milky way and e.42 would be equal to the universe. This zoom smashes all of them all away. If you were “actually” traveling into the fractal your speed would be faster than the speed of light. You might like to know that this animation took me about two days to set up. My computer then rendered day and night non-stop for just over a month to produce the animation. The resulting twenty-eight anti-aliased 1280×720 AVI files (each just under 2GB) were each watermarked at full frames (uncompressed) Then I stitched them all together uncompressed. I also added the audio track at the same time. This was all done in Virtual dub. (except watermarking) The final watermarked Avi with audio is a whopping 46GB – Then I compressed it to 495mb so I could upload it onto vimeo. I think it still looks fairly crisp..
