Library Run

I just started a Fun Links blog to house the interesting sites I find. I'm also thinking of starting a blog chronicling the library books I check out. In lieu of that, here's my score for today:

  • Reason, emotion, and music : towards a common structure for arts, sciences, and philosophies, based on a conceptual framework for the description of music - editors, L. Apostel, H. Sabbe, F. Vandamme. - Wilson - Music - I read this book about ten years past. A section on the microstructure of music really sparked my imagination.
  • The (mis)behavior of markets : a fractal view of risk, ruin, and reward - Benoit B. Mandelbrot and Richard L. Hudson - Davis - Benoit is a badass.
  • Statistical analysis of DNA sequence data - edited by B.S. Weir - M/P - I'm applying to grad school, and this guy is the head of the dept. Figure it'd be good to bone up on his works.

While at Wilson I visited the rare book collection. That place is amazing. I had the privilege of handling (and totally drooling on) a 700 year old, illuminated, vellum bound book on astronomy! Plus I had a nice exchange with that cute librarian on whom I've had a crush.

The librarian says that the statement is grammatically correct. Look it up.
