While reading the articles I was reminded that I still don't know much about mathematical programming (linear, quadratic...), which seems to pop up a lot in physics and makes an appearance in collision detection. I figure this is as good a time as any to correct that, so I have started going through the free classes on the Stanford website located here: http://www.stanford.edu/~boyd/ Class EE263 is a prerequisite for the convex optimization classes, so I'm starting there. If this starts taking too long, I may decide to postpone further study in this area, but hopefully I won't have to.
Writing blog entries will be a bit challenging for a variety of reasons, but the plan is to continue updating at least five times per week. The last thing I want to do is just repeat what's said in the lectures, so I may draw from multiple sources when I discuss what I have learned.
