My name is Lê and I believe that the greatest challenge in education is to make science and math appealing.
This is why I aim at bringing enthusiasm and excitement to the readers’ learning experience.
I now run a Robustly Beneficial wiki, mostly on AI ethics, which has come to fascinate me!

The Magic of AnalysisThe Magic of Analysis By Lê Nguyên Hoang | Updated:2016-02 | Views: 1945 This article retraces the endless pursuit of the infinite that is at the basis of mathematical analysis. From the first approximations of pi to the shape of our limitless universe, from the essential usefulness of differential equations to the troubles with infinite sums, we present the great ideas of mathematical geniuses all along History.

Shannon's Information TheoryShannon's Information Theory By Lê Nguyên Hoang | Updated:2016-01 | Views: 52682 Claude Shannon may be considered one of the most influential person of the 20th Century, as he laid out the foundation of the revolutionary information theory. Yet, unfortunately, he is virtually unknown to the public. This article is a tribute to him. And the best way I've found is to explain some of the brilliant ideas he had.

Does God play dice?Does God play dice? By Arthur Marronnier | Updated:2016-02 | Views: 1736 For Albert Einstein, the answer is no. But what did he mean? Has the greatest theoretical physicist of all time really missed the bandwagon of quantum physics? What are the real issues of the controversy that has opposed him to the Copenhagen School (Bohr, Heisenberg ...)? Back to the physics of the early twentieth century, its history, philosophy and ideas.

The Limitless Vertigo of Cantor's InfiniteThe Limitless Vertigo of Cantor's Infinite By Lê Nguyên Hoang | Updated:2015-12 | Views: 4146 No one believed him. Not even fellow mathematicians. They thought he was wrong. They thought he was crazy. Even he ended up doubting himself and went crazy. And yet, he had mathematically proved it all. Georg Cantor had figured out how to manipulate the infinite. Even more remarkable, he showed that there were actually several infinities; and some are bigger than others!

Spacetime of Special RelativitySpacetime of Special Relativity By Lê Nguyên Hoang | Updated:2016-02 | Views: 3580 Einstein's theory of relativity is the best-known breakthrough of the History of science. The reason for that isn't only the accuracy of the theory, but also and mainly its beauty. As Einstein once said: "Most of the fundamental ideas of science are essentially simple, and may, as a rule, be expressed in a language comprehensible to everyone." This is what the article aims at showing Einstein's simple ideas of special relativity and their beauty.

Pluto is NOT (not?) a PlanetPluto is NOT (not?) a Planet By Lê Nguyên Hoang | Updated:2015-12 | Views: 3558 In 2006, Pluto was officially demoted from its planetary status. When we dig a little bit, this isn't much of the surprise. What's more interesting is rather why it ever was regarded as a planet, as the History of Pluto highlights a magic enterprise that science is!

Spacetime of General RelativitySpacetime of General Relativity By Lê Nguyên Hoang | Updated:2016-01 | Views: 14430 Most popular science explanations of the theory of general relativity are very nice-looking. But they are also deeply misleading. This article presents you a more accurate picture of the spacetime envisioned by Albert Einstein.
