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.

The Revolutionary Galois TheoryThe Revolutionary Galois Theory By Lê Nguyên Hoang | Updated:2016-02 | Prerequisites: Linear Algebra and Higher Dimensions, Imaginary and Complex Numbers, Symmetries and Group Theory | Views: 13094 In 1832, Évariste Galois died. He was 20. The night before his death, he wrote a legendary letter to his friend, in which he claims to have found a mathematical treasure! Sadly, this treasure had long been buried in total indifference! It took nearly a century to rediscover it! Since then, Galois’ legacy has become some of the finest pure mathematics, which represents a hugely active field of research today with crucial applications to cryptography. Galois’ work is now known as Galois theory. In essence, it unveils the hidden symmetries of numbers!

Dynamics, Chaos, Fractals (pt 1)Dynamics, Chaos, Fractals (pt 1) By Scott McKinney | Updated:2016-02 | Views: 3107 The study of dynamical systems, natural or abstract systems that evolve at each instance in time according to a specific rule, is an active and fruitful area of research in mathematics. Its study has yielded insights into the nature of social networks such as Facebook, the spread of diseases such as influenza, and the behavior of the financial markets. In this series of posts, we’ll look in depth at dynamical systems, as well as at the related subjects of chaos theory and fractals, all of which are both interesting and useful for understanding our world.

Multicriteria with MACBETHMulticriteria with MACBETH By Lê Nguyên Hoang | Updated:2016-02 | Views: 2365 As more and more complex problems are dealt with in our societies, developing models such as multi-criteria analysis is crucial to better understand these problems. MACBETH is a state-of-the-art method to do just that. Its functioning is described in this article.

Web Programming: From HTML to AJAXWeb Programming: From HTML to AJAX By Lê Nguyên Hoang | Updated:2016-02 | Views: 3214 The Internet is an unavoidable component of today’s life, and will only become more and more important in the future. In this article, we”ll have an overview of its development in terms of coding languages. This article explains how webpages actually work. In particular, we’ll discuss HTML, CSS, PHP, WordPress, MySQL, Javascript, XML and JSON, as well as their competitors.

Non-Euclidean Geometry and Map-MakingNon-Euclidean Geometry and Map-Making By Scott McKinney | Updated:2016-02 | Views: 5125 Geometry literally means “the measurement of the Earth”, and more generally means the study of measurements of different kinds of space. Geometry on a flat surface, and geometry on the surface of a sphere, for example, are fundamentally different. A consequence of this disparity is the fact that it is impossible to create a perfectly accurate (flat) map of the Earth’s (spherical) surface. Every map of the Earth necessarily has distortions. In this post we look at a few different methods of map-making and evaluate their distortions as well as their respective advantages.

Shannon’s Information TheoryShannon’s Information Theory By Lê Nguyên Hoang | Updated:2016-01 | Views: 27639 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.
