LAST WEEK OF SEPTEMBER!

If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called Research, Would it?
                                                                                                                                  -Albert Einstein

Dive in to know about all the happenings in Ré in the last week of September.

Exploration Circles:

Ré’s Exploration circle is a simple process which is created for small group discussions amongst the students and even faculties of KCT which will help them to increase their knowledge regarding their interested domains. This circle will be more helpful to discover more about specific interests and areas to explore. This will help them gain experience in new areas of study, to build them and for knowledge sharing. So far the topics of the exploration circles which we have in Ré are Machine Learning, Bharatnatyam, Game of Thrones, Food, Biking, Bio-magnetism, Networks, Bio-medical Engineering, Nutrition & Dietics.

RéDefine:

The event is such a way that the students were asked to describe the past and present of a particular electronic product and were asked to use their creativity in order to describe the future of the given product .It was conducted on “Engineers day” the 15th of September and the enthusiast students unleashed their imagination which helped them give great ideas.

Résolve:

Résolve was indeed an event filled with discussions about various problems and solutions from students’ perspective. Students were given newspapers and were asked to prioritize the given news and to give solutions to those problems. Such problem solving tasks definitely help students to take up life with much ease and deal life’s problems serenely.

Movie Screening:

Life would be tragic if it weren’t funny.

          – Stephen Hawking.

To kick start the October month Ré screened a movie named “The Theory of Everything” to make the students be motivated by watching it. The movie based on relativity, time, space and much more of that did intrigue a number of students in these fields.

Infinity Doesn’t Exist:

Although the rubber band looks smooth and continuous, it cannot be stretched indefinitely as it is a convenient approximation. It will snap if we stretch it too far as it is made up of smaller atoms. Similarly, if we apply this concept in space like as if it is an infinitely stretchable medium, the measure problem goes away. Inflation cannot be made completely big without infinitely small value and hence getting rid of both infinities in one loop which consists of many other problems such as infinity problems when we try solving the quantization of gravity and infinitely dense black hole singularities.

In ancient times, many mathematicians were skeptical regarding the concepts of continuum and infinity. One such legend mathematician named as Carl Friedrich Gauss denied the common fact that anything named as infinity really existed. He stated that “ Infinity is nothing but a way of speaking” and he also added that, he protests against the use of magnitudes which are infinite and considering it as a completed value that it is never permissible in case of mathematics. However, one such mainstream is infinity. The reason why we haven’t discovered alternatives for infinity is because it is extremely a convenient approximation.

For example, consider the oxygen in front of you. Tracking the speeds of oscillations and positions of atoms of air would be much complicated. But when we try ignoring the fact that the oxygen is made up of atoms and considering it as a continuum ( a substance which is smooth enough and has pressure, density and velocity at each point) , we will find that the tracking of speeds of oscillations and positions of atoms will end up with simple equations. Despite all the convenience, air is not completely continuous. And I think it’s the same for time, space and all other building blocks of our life.

 

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a Miracle. The other is as though everything is a Miracle.
