Neural Network Using MATLAB Code
Sometimes middle of the night thoughts are strange. At 3AM today, I was trying to remember the name of the guy who wrote “Infinite Jest” and “The Broom of the System”. The only thing that kept popping into my head was Richard Gordon Loomis, the name of my very excellent piano tuner, but a man with no known literary inclinations. I had no idea why this happened until I came up with the real name of the author this morning, 5 hours later — David Foster Wallace.
They don’t sound the same (except for the last syllable), but they have exactly the same rhythmic cadence of syllables when spoken. Also he’s the only person I know who uses his middle name (the reason being that, amazingly enough, there is another piano tuner in the area named Richard Loomis).
This fits with John Hopfield’s theory of memory (he’s one of the inventors of the neural net) — having to do with chaos and attractors ( Neural networks and physical systems with emergent collective computational abilities. Proc. NatL Acad. Sci. USA Vol. 79, pp. 2554-2558, April 1982). Just get anything near what you are trying to remember, and slowly (5 hours in this case), it converges to what you are trying to remember (an attractor in memory space). It does show just how even peripheral parts of a concept (the cadence of what you are trying to remember when you speak it) are part of the concept itself. Clearly, concepts are multidimensional.

Supported by both parents. However, remember the other parent is supporting the child when she is there. They are feeding the child,paying for activities etc. Whether they have to provide any money to you depends on many factors.You should google the child support calculator for CA.I would first try to work out a parenting plan. If the child can only see the parent once a month,what can you offer in exchange? more time over the summer? extra school breaks? This is not a drastic change but be ready to make up for the lost time. Also, let the other parent know that any time they want to come to CA they are welcome and can go to the activities with the child
