Efficient Pythagorean trees: Greed is good

Cameron Browne
2007 Computers & graphics  
The Pythagorean tree is a fractal figure with a branching structure based upon the Pythagorean theorem.  ...  A model of prioritized branch growth based on this idea is used to optimize tree shape, allowing more visually interesting trees to be grown using significantly fewer segments.  ...  Pythagorean trees The Pythagorean tree is a plane fractal constructed with squares, such that each triplet of touching squares forms a right triangle (Figure 1 ).  ...

Greed is Good: Algorithmic Results for Sparse Approximation

J.A. Tropp
2004 IEEE Transactions on Information Theory  
That is, for every input signal, OMP can calculate a sparse approximant whose error is only a small factor worse than the optimal error which can be attained with the same number of terms.  ...  From there, it argues that Orthogonal Matching Pursuit is an approximation algorithm for the sparse problem over a quasiincoherent dictionary.  ...  The goal is to provide a good upper bound for Φ + opt ψ 1 = (Φ * opt Φ opt ) −1 Φ * opt ψ 1 , where ψ is a non-optimal vector.  ...

The Evolution of Religion

John Wesley Powell, Sherwood J. B. Sugden
1898 The Monist  
It is now evident that the task is impossible. Human evolution does not result in the differentiation of kinds of animal men, but in stages of intellectual growth.  ...  Had the laws of evolution pertaining to animals remained efficient, and had not these methods of culture been developed, the human species which primordially exhibited varieties pretty well distinguished  ...  Religion, then, is a system of activities to obtain beatitude, blessing, righteousness, truth, and wisdom, as the chief good by enlisting the good offices of unseen beings in the unseen world.  ...

Baby black holes, strange matter and GNA risks in the Entropic age of History

Luis Sancho Soto
2008 Zenodo  
So the equation is right but the choice of the - symbol (decreasing temperature and increasing mass) which respects the 2nd law of thermodynamics and EFE Einstein's equation is the right form to interpret  ...  it: an ultra hot black hole baby is born exceedingly small and according to those laws it attracts mass, cools down as it evaporates the environment and grows in a novel explosion.  ...  And that is why the tree of technology, the tree of metal, wrongly called the tree of science will kill mankind. But man ignores it, and it is impossible to teach him this obvious fact.  ...

In the efficient entities, that which is effective is force; in the ones being effected, that which is passive is matter.  ...  (VI. 8.4.33-40) Something is "in the Good" not as in something else, but as it is in itself, and not because it has annihilated itself in the Good, for this is not the nature of the Good.  ...  This is why it must be simplified at all costs, firstly by giving up any unnecessary formal complexities -one should learn about a pine tree from the tree itself.  ...
