Lorenz

LorenzI assume you all saw the obituary for Edward Lorenz, but here’s a little article from the New York Times.

Three of the main things that made me excited about science when I was a kid were AI, music composition, and chaos theory — the last one thanks to Gleick’s book. Indeed, just after I typed the period on the previous sentence, I tried to think of how to wrap up this little post, and focused my eyes behind the monitor onto my bookshelf a few feet behind it. Immediately, “James Gleick — Chaos” came into focus, sitting front and center in my shelf of my favorite books. That was totally unexpected, but it’s a nice example of how important Lorenz’s discovery was for me.

We’ll miss you Lorenz!
