As can be surmised, I have been terribly uncreative in choosing a name for this weblog. I liked that Feynman book, and I’ve really been getting more and more interested in mathematics lately.

Yes… it’s another math blog.

On the other hand, a cursory search shows that there aren’t that many blogs that talk about numerical methods or special functions, which are the very parts of mathematics I will be dealing with in this weblog.

I will say in advance that I have no degree of any sort in mathematics; the descriptor “amateur” very much applies. Apart from the courses I have taken at school, I am mostly self-taught. If something I write in this blog lacks the appropriate sophistication, now you know why. ;) (I would very much appreciate being educated in new stuff, though.)

Still, I’m hoping some of the stuff I’ve been playing around with might be useful to other people, or at the very least make them think.

This would be a good time to end this christening entry. :) Happy trails!
