If you ever seen this rover “Curiosity” landing on Mars on August 6, 2012, chances are you would discover the use of complex binary algorithms. Lets’ put it simply this way: the rover is already going down on Martian surface; last second decision making is handed by powerful computers, that put into practice that yes/no output. We as general public/viewers see it as a normal historical event, but behind all that awesomeness there is math, and logarithms for sure. Some young women forget about the math, and tweet this mohawk JPL Scientist: unbelievable! Just considered HubPages for a second. Those buttons for flagging, voting up/down are essentially handled by logarithmic formulae. There is an intrinsic association between logarithms and algorithms. The whole math involved in it can take us back to those flowcharts that involved commands like, If, go-to, loops and of course “start” and “end.” We are writing a more popular view of this torture of math. In real life we talk about getting input and delivering consequently and output. Let’s see what we have … more….. What The Heck is This Number “e”? If you ask Mark Zuckerberg, you will be asking about a God for him. Is a number he needed in his algorithmic ideas to start FaceBook. Silicon valley think of this number as magical, but what is it? e= 2.7182 Was named Euler’s constant in honor of Leonhard Euler (1707-1787), a Swiss Mathematician that loved his math like us. If you want a more accurate number here it is e=2.71828182845904523536028747135266249775724709369995 // More…Te-World-of-LogarithmsProblems-and-Applications The-World-of-LogarithmsProblems-and-Applications
