]]>Here’s the description:

295. Technical Writing for Electrical Engineers. (2) Lecture, two hours. Designed for electrical engineering Ph.D. students. Opportunity for students to improve technical writing skills by revising conference, technical, and journal papers and practicing writing about their work for undergraduate audience (potential students), engineers outside their specific fields, and nonscientists (colleagues with less expertise in field and policymakers). Students write in variety of genres, all related to their professional development as electrical engineers. Emphasis on writing as vital way to communicate precise technical and professional information in distinct contexts, directly resulting in specific outcomes. S/U grading.

]]>For example –

Robinson Crusoe meets Walras and Keynes

D McFadden – Mimeographed, University of California at Berkeley, 1975

Competitive equilibrium: Walras meets Darwin

S Didrik Flåm, B Sandvik – Optimization, 2000 – Taylor & Francis

Thereby giving Darwin, Keynes and Robinson Crusoe a Shannon number (upper bound) of 3…

]]>One problem is that Shannon has an Erdos number of 3 … and Erdos’s connections swamp Shannon’s. For example, my own Erdos number is smaller than my Shannon number.

It is interesting to compare to how many people Shannon actually collaborated with, and how a “Shannon Number” is usually just a “Gallager Number” + 1 or sometimes a “Berlekamp Number” +1

]]>Triadic closure?

Someone should quickly define the Shannon number…
