"Literate programs are written to be read by other software developers." — Donald Knuth
But, I'm not developing software, I just want to lean how to get Maple to assist me as I try to solve problems, look for answers, truth, the meaning of life and the American way...
"The Feynman Problem-Solving Algorithm:
(1) write down the problem;
(2) think very hard;
(3) write down the answer."
This stuff is cool:
> SPLIT:= (f,x) -> [selectremove](`not` @ has, f, x);
and I find it entertaining, better than Circ De Sola.
"In most computer programming languages, the challenge might be to solve the puzzle in the fewest lines of code. In APL, it is generally a given that the solution will be one line of code: The challenge is to solve the problem in the fewest characters!"
"There are two kinds of geniuses: the 'ordinary' and the 'magicians'. An ordinary genius is a fellow whom you and I would be just as good as, if we were only many times better. There is no mystery as to how his mind works. Once we understand what they've done, we feel certain that we, too, could have done it. It is different with the magicians. Even after we understand what they have done it is completely dark. Richard Feynman is a magician of the highest calibre." — Mark Kac
What if Feynman was born in 1979 with Maple? Are there Feynmans out there now?
"... as far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality." — Albert Einstein
Math can be fun and sometimes it is even helpful in the real world.
