Relations and Digraphs

Filed under: CSC 213, Spring 2007 — Hamman @ 6:35 pm

After completing our topic on recurrance relations (with linear non-homogeneous recurrance relations), we got into a new topic, Relations and Digraphs.

Here, we looked into…

  • Binary relations
  • Cartesian products

Test done!

My fingers are still aching from writing fast! The test was an hour long, and I had to rush to complete all five of the essay questions. Well, this is done, and now I have to concentrate on my open-topic CIV essay titled “Exploring Middle Eastern History in the Hexateuch”

The Mongols

Filed under: CIV 211, Spring 2007 — Hamman @ 12:34 pm

We started the lecture by learning about the futawwas and how they related to Nasir, the khalifah who wanted to be sultan.

The invasion of the Mongols marks the end of the Khalifah era, and the start of the Mongol rule over the Islamic territories around the late 1200s. We made some comparisons between the Mongol armies and rule with the Islamic armies when they had come in.

We also looked into how the Mongols converted to Islam and how they integrated their own laws of the Yasa into the Shariah.

Chain rule

Filed under: MAT 211, Spring 2007 — Hamman @ 8:11 am

Last week Friday, we revisited the chain rule from Calculus II, bu this time extending it to 2-D and 3-D. We also learnt about the use of diagramming techniques in getting out a chain rule for multivariate functions.

Transfer of heat :: Best lecture

Filed under: PHY 106, Spring 2007 — Hamman @ 8:10 am

Last Friday, we had what I would rate as probably the most interesting lecture I have had in all my courses. And I can say that because I can still remember the conversations we had on heat, how low temperatures affect us, how heat is transferred, and some very practical talks on all of this. Generally, heat is not one of my favorite topics, but this lecture was just super! Dr. Jeff often “digresses”, and we even talked about relativity! I loved this lecture!
