After a fast road trip passing through Skopje, Ohrid, Tirana, Shkoder and Kotor, I was out of vacation days. As I had to be in Istanbul within two days, I decided to buy a one way plane ticket to Istanbul from Podgorica while I was in Kotor. My flight was next day in the afternoon,… Continue reading A short day in Podgorica, Montenegro
Here, I am sharing three animations for estimating the Pi number. The first one is using the Monte Carlo method where the needles inside the circles and the whole squares are utilized to find the ratio of the areas, hence eventually the . Here, we increase the number of needles in a given trial and… Continue reading Estimating Pi
Emre Demir’in aşağıda linki bulunan videosunda bahsettiği Çin hakkında yapılabilecek okuma listesini kendim için çıkarmak istedim, hazır çıkarmışken burada herkes ile paylaşmak istedim: China’s Cosmopolitan Empire: The Tang Dynasty Mark Edward Lewis et al The Early Chinese Empires: Qin and Han Mark Edward Lewis et al The Age of Confucian Rule: Dieter Kuhn et al A… Continue reading Çin hakkında ne okuyabilirim?
Let’s say we have only access to uniform random number generator which generates random points between 0 and 1 (let’s denote it rand()), and we are asked to generate uniformly random points within a given circle with specified radius (let’s say for now). The first idea that comes to mind is to utilize the random… Continue reading Generate Uniform Random Points within a Circle
To my experience, it was one of the simplest international travel you can do while in Turkey. There is no tight airport security screening, no crowds and no hassles. You start your day in a nice Mediterranean morning in Kaş, Antalya and get to the office of Meis Express to get your ticket. The ferryboat… Continue reading How to get to Kastellorizo from Kaş?
Kaş-Meis arası yolculuk, eğer vize sorunu yoksa, Türkiye’den gitmesi en kolay rotalardan birisi olarak kabul edilebilir. Bizim yaptığımız sabah 8 civarı Kaş’a vardıktan sonra direk Meis Express‘in ofisine gidip Meis için o gün için bilet/yer olup olmadığını sormak oldu. Internetten feribotun saat 10’da kalkacağını biliyorduk. Oradaki görevliler de yer olduğunu söyleyince işlemleri başlattık. Günübirlik 25… Continue reading Kaş’dan Meis’e nasıl gidilir?
.. under construction .. Here, we compare the progression of classical and bi-directional Dijkstra Algorithms as applied to simple 2D rectangular and hexagonal grids as well as more destructured US road network. The road network is intentionally sampled and reduced to a minimum spanning tree for easier visualization. The real connections between nodes can be… Continue reading Dijkstra vs bi-directional Dijkstra comparison on sample US Road Network
