About this website
This website is built in wordpress using the sparkling theme and a whole bunch of plugins.
Hosting is generously provided by Dave Ramsay.
A lot of the design of this site is cribbed shamelessly from Phil Cook’s beer diary.
is a picture from my complex systems days. Basically each line and ring represents the centre of a tornado in the space (called a phase singularity) This sort of model is useful for understanding pattern formation in reaction diffusion systems, of which the sexy example is electrical activity in the heart.
