I am (or was) a Physics / Computer Science major with interests in distributed and parallel computing, computational physics, and web application development.

I dabble in plenty of Physics related things from time to time, but I mostly spend my time programming in C++, C# and Mathematica. I have a rather obsessive interest in distributed computing and parallel computing in general.

My most recent interests are within web application development in the ASP.NET MVC3 framework and in high performance computing with visualization.

comment Speeding up this fractal-generating code
@Isaac: Well, you have to play around with the number of points which is a downside. In the other version you can just adjust PlotPoints and MaxRecursion and Mathematica "knows" where to evaluate next. Otherwise, you have the same "formatting" options that DensityPlot has

This is a pretty good resource. It has lots of small, easy to digest snippets.

revised Is there a way to Collect[] for more than one symbol?
Remove the superscript 2 and 3 from the code blocks. Mathematica doesn't recognize this as something squared or cubed. Also collect tag isn't really necessary.

comment How can I improve the speed of eigenvalue decompositions for large matrices?
It seems like Matlab and Mathematica use the same core algorithms, but the constants involved are different.
