Random Motion Assignments Due

 

Identify and bring in for a class presentation something that moves unpredictably - it can be mechanical, a household object, fabricated or found. Don't forget heat rises, light is very fast and gravity tends to make things fall. One caveat however, this project should be a combination, collage or construction of multiple components. For instance, a toy or a balloon in and of itself would not suffice, but an interaction between the two would.

 

“Anyone who considers arithmetical methods of producing random digits is, of course, in a state of sin”

Definition of Randomness R1: A random finite binary string is one that cannot be compressed into a program smaller than itself,

   that is, that is not the unique output of a program without any input, a program whose size in bits is smaller than the size in bits of its output.

Definition of Randomness R2: A random n-bit string is one that has maximum or near maximum complexity.

   In other words, an n-bit string is random if its complexity is approximately equal to the maximum complexity of any n-bit string.
