discontinuity.net is home to Davin Potts who has, at times, been associated with projects involving theoretical chemistry, distributed computing, numerical methods, high performance massively parallel computing, mathematical physics, number theory, and other forms of torture for really big computers. Not limited to these subjects, any and all content Davin finds vaguely interesting is game here.


Random daily discontinuity quote:
As the aircraft picks up speed, and approaches the speed of sound -- around 767mph (1,234km/h) at sea level -- shockwaves form around the aircraft. Across these shockwaves there is "discontinuity" in the local air pressure and temperature. This causes the air loses its capacity to hold water and condensation starts to form, creating the vapour cone.
