I finished reading Anathem a while ago, and I really do recommend it. It was weird at first, but really nice in the end. It finished a bit fast, I’d say it needs another hundred pages to tie some of the stuff.
Also, Ricardo Cervera (you don’t have an url these days, you do?) sent me Introduction to Algorithms which I’ve been skimming through. Really nice book, of course. — Thanks.
As part of one of the research projects I’m involved, I just started reading/studying Aircraft control and simulation. Fortunately, it is not hurting as much as I expected. Though it is not for the faint of heart.
