Ever since days at graduate school in 1994 I had wanted to do something with Mathematica. Originally it was to be used for my thesis in solving simultaneous differential equations with delta functions. My thesis advisor was a prolific physicist much like Steve having published over 100 papers in his lifetime (see asimorhanbarut.com and his Wikipedia page: Asim O Barut). He was the first person to derive the Dirac equation from classical fields and firmly believed that much in classical physics has yet to be done. His slim text on classical fields remains a important text today even though he wrote it in the 60’s. And his study in group theory and M-theory also won him many reputations among his peers. And his thinking had impacted me tremendously through out my life in area of sciences.
自1994年研究生學習以來，我一直想用Mathematica做點什麼。 最初它被用於我的論文中求解具有delta函數的simultan differential equation。 我的論文導師是一位prolific的物理學家，就像史蒂夫，他在他一生中發表過100多篇論文（見asimorhanbarut.com和他的維基百科頁面：Asim O Barut）。 他是第一個從classical theory中得出狄拉克方程式的人，並堅信在經典物理學中還有很多東西未完成的事情要發掘。 儘管他在60年代寫過，但他的classical fields課本仍然是今天的重要課本。 他在小組理論和M理論方面的研究也為他贏得了同行中的許多聲譽。 他的思想在科學領域的生活中給我帶來了巨大的影響。
As I got my second degree in business I started looking at real world applications with Mathematica 6.0!using simpler but interesting combination of functions.
I went to the 2014 launch of Mathematica 10 at the Wolfram Conference near Chicago to see how the program could help with my then new media company in Taiwan.
One of the key mission of the company is this: a conscious use of media。 Which essentially is education.
Also, my parents have asked that I give something back to society and so the goal of most of my projects are not to make lots of money but to have positive impact on education.
After these years I have honed in on three areas that I would like to pursue:
1. Linguistic (see studio76edutaimment.wordpress.com)
2. Art and Gaming that teaches something (see studio76edutaimment.wordpress.com) of the sci-fi or other genres.
3. Qualitative analysis of Photos and artwork
And if time permits
4. Friendly Robotics (this is for my kids!)
And in the far future:
distance teaching in variety of fields in multiple languages.
With the assistance of Wolfram and it’s Mathematica version 12 I hope I will be able to accomplish these as a way of thanking my teachers, mentors and my parents.
In giving back to the Mathematica community, I would like to help build a local Mathematica community on par with say Korea, It will need to be a cooperative effort but I think it can be done. I will also gladly contribute some time in putting together or helping at workshops in Taiwan or for Mathematica community gathering.
