Recursive Patterning

A couple weeks ago I was discussing the theory behind my work with interference patterns with Ogo, trying to bridge a gap between the mathematical backing of my interest and the aesthetic appeal of the reification of that interest, and found myself attempting to explain Steven Wolfram.

Well, I just found myself doing a google search for disjunct, and the third entry is (at present) a link to a page intending to be a definition of Disjunct on mathworld.wolfram.com

However, since there is no definition of the simpler term, here is the next most useful page (which does define mathematical disjunct—the conjunction of a thing and it's opposite), Disjunctive Normal Form.

I hadn't noticed the Wolfram link before...perhaps it only became conspicuous because I'd recently been discussing him?

wow! you r mathematician? and what is area of your interests?
cause i'm also mathematician-developer.

Well, no actually I'm a math oriented geek turned artist...my mathematical interests are all theoretical...
I gave up on my math aspirations after high school to follow the lure of the arts.

So, my art still retains a bit of mathematical/scuentific intrigue to it. The interference work I speak of looks like this and this and this.

I also have other mathematical interests, but now I've sort of gotten myself behind and can't properly pursue them. This manifests itself currently in the case of a game I've been pondering, but I can't apply game theory to solve some crucial issues I need to consider...

what sort of developer are you? does that mean you program? maybe you can help me sidestep the game theory issue if you're interested in working on a project. if you're interested, join the US Yahoo group, paperworks and check out the prospectus. I think it's interesting, but the next step seems to be to build a programmic model to run some tests on. I'd ideally like to develop it for the Nintendo DS...the touchpad and wireless makes it sexy-perfect for this game.
