Alex, Tony - if you post or email me a list of ports I'll knock up some placemats.
Or I can. And TN threads.

Re: Software that makes placemats

For manually making a StreamPlot (I think this is what you meant?) I imagine that will be tougher. I am absolutely sure it will be very tricky. Create field seed spots at the edges of the circles (at whatever density we decide). Or choose seed points in a small circle around a charge, perhaps every...

Re: Software that makes placemats

Edited wed 19th June to rename Dists ➝ Pot. Please, no jokes. Possible algorithm for assigning charges Circles either have a charge assigned (hurray!), which is one of {1,2,3}. Or don’t yet, in which case deemed charge is 0. Repeatedly we’ll compute, for circle i , Pot i 0 , Pot i 1 , Pot i 2 , and...

Re: Software that makes placemats

Good idea. I also changed circlepos to a different hexagonal lattice. Charges good. Because circles touch, hexagonal was better. How to generalise the charges it to fit http://www.jdawiseman.com/2018/20181002_Cockburn_g0.png For this type of layout, might a triangle tesselation with charges {⅓,⅔,1}...

Re: Software that makes placemats

FYI, the only floating-point precision in PostScript is single: 23-bit mantissa ≈ one part in eight million; 8 bits exponent so maximum value ≈ ±10³⁸.

Re: Software that makes placemats

E.g.: PostScriptForm[(a + Sqrt[ b])^15] ➝ a b sqrt add dup dup mul dup mul mul dup dup mul mul Love it. So do I, but perhaps more for its wilful stubbornness than its practicality. Fixed. Hmm. Bug or feature? • The points south, east-by-north-east and west-by-north-west relate well to the central c...

Re: Software that makes placemats

I presume this is some sort of language converter? Yes. Converts basic expressions to (slightly) idiomatic PostScript. Typical use case is a polynomial to be solved: it converts the CoefficientList , which is then passed to a PostScript polynomial solver. E.g.: PostScriptForm[(a + Sqrt[ b])^15] ➝ a...

Re: Software that makes placemats

Interesting. What charge did you give each point? By what algorithm should the charges be chosen? And please post the code that made the diagram.

Re: Software that makes placemats

• I dislike the whole Rays algorithm. Despite the previous discussion of it way back in summer 2013 . • You say that each circle should be a “point charge”. I suspect that aesthetically that wouldn’t work with the very strong circle motif. The lines need to leave the bounding circle, not a point cha...

Long time, no see.
Indeed, your first post in 6¾ years.

And thank you for telling us of the auction. I know that attention was paid, but not whether bids were submitted.
