Love(t)

As engineers some of us may or may not have the chance to meet our significant others in school. We always have too much work to do to have the time to have a chance of meeting someone. As well, there aren't many women in engineering that we can meet. The odds of meeting one is low.

I'm sure we all have sometime to meet the girl of our dreams in school. I wonder what married life would be like. Do you think this underdamped system is too simplified to describe a relationship? I can see that some parts of a relationship are great, but I can also see parts where they aren't so great like your first argument ha. Do you think you can describe 'love' with an equation? Or do you think it's too complicated to be described by mathematics?

So what do you think love is? Have you ever been in love? Did you have the time to start a relationship when you were in university? I think everyone who organizes their time efficiently can have the time to do so!

  1. Next time I get involved I am going to plan my relationship using MS project...

  2. Look into vibration modelling (no pun intended). Think of it as oscillations of masses with respect to time. There should be some "damping" such that the relationship either oscilates about, or decays toward the "love line" equilibrium.

  3. Check out the Damped Harmonic Oscillator Equations on wikipedia here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harmonic_oscillator

  4. Yea reminds me of a second order differential... harmonic oscillator ftw.

  5. Fortunately my damping ratio is much higher than that!

  6. Apparently love is a negative sinc function.

  7. The relationship poles should preferably be closer to the Im-Axis in order to increase the relative damping of this system..

  8. Now if you can show us the graph or formula or math for finding love or where to look that would be great :D

  9. I can describe my last relationship as a material stress curve...we hit the ultimate tensile strength, and then he cheated on me (fracture point)
