The wink of the Gorgon and the twang of the Lyre
The discovery of the archetypal eclipsing binary Algol The likes of Geminiano Montanari are hardly seen today. This remarkable Italian polymath aristocrat from the 1600s penetrated many realms of knowledge spanning law, medicine, astronomy, physics, biology and military technology. Having … Continue reading

Some notes on the HenonHeiles Hamiltonian system
Anyone familiar with dynamical systems knows of the HenonHeiles (HH) system. What we are presenting here is wellknown stuff about which reams of material have been written. However, we offer certain tricks for visualizing this system that make it easy … Continue reading
1859 CE and beyond: Some reflections
The yuga between 1800 CE and 1900 CE saw a remarkable change in our understanding of the world at many levels. It is not that some of these ideas did not exist long before that time but they came together … Continue reading
