My name is David and I am a physicist living in Stuttgart, Germany. Amongst other things, I am interested in science, math, programming, technology, cycling, progressive rock music and board games. You can find information about some of my projects on this page.
A geographical quiz where you have to guess the location of capitals and big cities around the world. The game comes with a custom designed world map that is controlled by the Leaflet.js library. The source code, the map and the geo data can be found on GitHub.
Ein praktischer Manager um Packlisten extrem schnell zusammenzustellen. Es gibt vorgefertigte Tags wie “Sommer”, “Ferienwohnung” oder “Sport”, sowie komplette Listen für einen Wanderurlaub, eine Geocaching-Tour oder eine Konferenz.
Paper locator is an easy and universal interface to get immediate access to scientific papers. Tired of manually extracting journal, volume and page from a reference and searching the publisher websites manually? Paper locator automates this process. Just copy a text sample containing the reference and Paper locator takes you directly to the document.
Das Würfelspiel Zehntausend lässt sich mathematisch exakt lösen, indem man die optimale Strategie rekursiv definiert. Die detaillierte Rechnung findet sich im angegebenen Dokument. Zur Lösung wurde ein Haskell Programm verwendet, das die optimale Strategie implementiert und den Lösungsbaum rekursiv durchsucht (siehe GitHub).
This is a Mathematica package that defines bindings for GnuPlot. It can be used
to create high-quality plots from within Mathematica. The package easily integrates
into your automated workflow by exporting to different output formats. It provides
gnuListPlot which work (to
some extend) analogous to Mathematicas own
Board game collection
