An Instructional Experience

I just finished my first term as a professor at Singapore Management University. I taught an undergraduate course called Computer as an Analysis Tool, which is on business modelling and data-driven decision support. I had about 130 Studenten, in three sections of three classroom hours each per week. I have to say the whole thing was a very enriching experience. Natürlich, the reasons behind this statement will be expounded on, theorized and hypothesizedthis is Unreal Blog, schließlich.

Twilight Years

At some point in our life, we come to accept the fact we are closer to death than life. What lies ahead is definitely less significant than what is left behind. These are the twilight years, and I have come to accept them. With darkness descending over the horizons, and the long shadows of misspent years and evaded human conditions slithering all around me, I peer into the void, into an eternity of silence and dreamlessness. Es ist almost time.

Sunset Career

Die Lehre ist eine edle und lohnende Berufung. As my sunset career, I have accepted a faculty position at Singapore Management University, Lehre Datenanalyse und Geschäftsprozessmodellierung an der School of Information Systems. Diese Themen sitzen gut mit meinem entrepreneurial ventures from earlier this year on data analytics and process automation, aus dem Ruhestand zurück, die waren alle ein Teil meines Kommens.

Interpretation of Special Relativity

When we looked at Quantum Mechanics, we talked about its various interpretations. The reason we have such interpretations, Ich sagte,, is that QM deals with a reality that we have no access to, through our sensory and perceptual apparatuses. Andererseits, Special Relativity is about macro objects in motion, and we have no problem imagining such things. So why would we need to have an interpretation? The answer is a subtle one.

Lichtgeschwindigkeit

The speed of light being a constant sounds like a simple statement. But there is more to it, quite a bit more. Let’s look at what this constancy really means. Auf den ersten Blick, it says that if you are standing somewhere, and there is a ray of light going from your right to left, it has a speed c. And another ray of light going from left to right also has a speed c. So far, so good. Now let’s say you are in a rocket ship, wie in der Abbildung unten, moving from right to left.

Spezielle Relativitätstheorie

Wenn wir hören, über Einstein und der speziellen Relativitäts (oder die spezielle Relativitätstheorie, den richtigen Namen zu verwenden,), Wir denken an die berühmten E = mc^2 Gleichung, und seltsame Dinge wie das Zwillingsparadoxon. Während diese Dinge sind alle wahr und wichtig, das Problem SR zu lösen versucht, ist ein ganz anderes. Es ist ein Versuch, ein Grundprinzip in der Physik zu verteidigen.
