A General Theory for Finding the Lightest Manmade Structures Using Voronoi and Delaunay
A general theory for finding the lightest possible structures is introduced in this article. Then a special centroid form of the theory is introduced. This special form will later help in the implementation of the general ...
De-Script-ion: Individuality / Uniformity
On the one hand, I am fascinated by a phenomenon that creates richness and harmony in nature, like trees of the same kind sharing the same characteristics and being individually unique. On the other hand, in contemporary ...
