Subject: [Lisp] Lisp Meeting: Nov 10th 7:00 at Trinity
Join us Tuesday, Nov 10th from 7:00 - 9:00 at Trinity Lutheran for
Gershom Bazerman's presentation:
Simple Scheme for Tricky Differentials
Gershom Bazerman demonstrates an novel and elegant approach to modeling
differential equations in functional languages.
Lazy splines can provide a clean way of expressing ordinary differential
equations and deriving numeric solutions. Unlike standard solvers,
equations can be expressed simply and declaratively, as first class data
in the target language (Scheme, Lisp, Haskell, etc.). Differential
equations can thus be turned directly into easily readable and
Differential equations have wide applicability -- from finance to
physics to computer games. This presentation will be of interest to
those who deal with calculus every day, as well as those who haven't
seen an integral since high school. A short primer/review of
differential equations will be included, as well as a discussion of the
power of lazy evaluation and infinite streams in general.
Gershom is a Haskell developer in New York City, working in the finance
Directions to Trinity:
602 E. 9th St. & Ave B., on Tompkins Square Park
From N,R,Q,W (8th Street NYU Stop) and the 4,5 (Astor Street Stop):
Walk East 4 blocks on St. Marks, cross Tompkins Square Park.
From F&V (2nd Ave Stop):
Walk E one or two blocks, turn north for 8 short blocks
From L (1st Ave Stop):
Walk E one block, turn sounth for 5 short blocks
The M9 bus line drops you off at the doorstep and the M15 is near get
off on St. Marks & 1st)
To get there by car, take the FDR (East River Drive) to Houston then
go NW till you're at 9th & B. Week-night parking isn't bad at all,
but if you're paranoid about your Caddy or in a hurry, there is a
parking garage on 9th between 1st and 3rd Ave.
