A cool theorem.

Gödel's Lost Letter and P=NP

Ron Fagin is a great theorist who has made many important contributions to diverse aspects of computing. He is perhaps most famous for his brilliant categorization of polynomial time by second order logic—Fagin’s Theorem.

Today I plan on talking about a related theorem—Courcelle’s—proved in 1990. Yet the theorem is not, in my opinion, as well known as it should be. The truth is I did not know this pretty theorem until I ran across it the other day. So perhaps everyone else knows Courcelle’s result except for me. Oh well.

Overrated

leave a comment »

I guess I will make a list of things I feel are overrated.

  1. Emma Watson : She sucks. She is just another ordinary okay actress. She doesn’t even have much good looks. She transformed into a hideous girl into a better looking girl in the Harry Potter series. Happens to most girls. But only her transformation was available on the screen. Hence all this mania over her. I would also add the high percentage of sapiosexual youths in the society too as a factor.
  2. Shakespeare : He wrote pretty good material, I agree that. But society makes as if he’s a god and nothing is superior to his plays which I strongly disagree.
  3. Mary Mother of God : I don’t understand the high importance of Mary in the prayers. I feel like Catholics are kind of using her. As if since she is a woman and hence have a more fragile mind, praying to her is a better idea. She would easily feel sorry for us and ask Jesus to help us as happened in the Canaan wedding. I badly need an explanation for this. Every time I say “Hail Mary” in my prayers I feel like I am flattering Mary to gain my needs. It’s odd when you feel guilt when you pray.
  4. Godfather and Star War movies: Regarding this I might be wrong as I did not watch them during the 70’s or 80’s. To me they are good movies, not classic/legendary/extraordinary.

I guess for now that is it. I will update if I remember something else.

The Beginning

leave a comment »

Well,I have been thinking to start a blog for years! But I was busy with ‘other things’ and couldn’t start it off!
But I finally began to regret about the wonderful literary ideas that come to my mind which I soon forget about because I didn’t wrote it down. So maybe by encouraging my slightly narcissistic mind, I could have some motivation to write those down somewhere.(Now was that narcissistic?)
So in short, I would be posting crap just to read it myself. My language is famous for its hieroglyphic nature; so reading my posts would be tough.
Anyway I am a second year B.Tech engineering student. My posts would be a mix of technology, movies and philosophical crap. So let me see how far would this venture go!
