Problem solving

It is an open eneded discipline of study for solving problems in academic or daily life not randomly but systematically and efficiently at low cost using a rich set of abstract tools and techniques.

These powerful tools and techniques are created from experience analysis and abstraction of usable resources spread over many subjects such as Management, Computer Science, Maths and so on. This approach enables us to apply a technique to solve a problem in Maths as efficiently as a complex business problem.

Subcategories

How to solve a simple looking problem with a twist, domain mapping

thumb_abstraction-and-domain-mapping-solves-simple-looking-problem-with-a-twist-top

In a problem that looks simple but somehow wrong and violates the commonly known concepts, power of abstraction may often overcome the apparently unknown and uncertain state and helps to reach the elegant solutions. On the way to the solution, usually a higher level rich concept is created the precise form of which was hidden just around the corner...

Principle of disproportion saved us millions this time

thumb_principle of disproportion

All things in nature are in proportions that we accept and have become used to. Mimicking nature we build our things that also follow rough proportional relationships that we are not always explicitly aware. But when such a proportional relationship is violated outright we might feel something is wrong, if we have the principle of disproportion imbued in us.
