Me, circa 2019

Hey! I’m Cade Brown

Welcome to Near Computronium, my personal website and blog ( My main interests are mathematics, philosophy, artificial intelligence, programming languages, and data-driven art. I like to write tutorials from scratch, and deep-dives into mathematical/philosophical topics. I also write about practical tips and tricks I’ve learned the hard way, so hopefully you don’t have to.

Check out projects I’ve worked on: MAGMA, CARVE, kscript, SimpleSummit, OEIS A267263, MPFR. Previously, I’ve worked at NVIDIA, OLCF @ ORNL, ICL @ UTK, PAIRS @ UTK, and open source communities.

You can find me online:

Also, here’s my resume, my CV, and my LinkedIn.

You can reach me at, I’m always happy to chat or discuss possible opportunities!

My Music

Dysmorphic Demiurge

I’m the vocalist for Dysmorphic Demiurge, a death metal band based in Knoxville, TN. We’re unlike most death metal bands; our songs deal with the rise of artificial intelligence, the philosophical repercussions of achieving The Singularity, and apocalyptic scenarios (BUY OUR MERCH!).

We’re completely self-recorded, self-mixed, and self-mastered, and our crazy artwork courtesy of Justin Abraham @artofjustinabraham. We’re signed to Miasma Records.

Check us out on social media, drop a follow:

We also have a lot of 2D, 3D, and AI-generated animation videos, which you should check out if you’re a fan of generative art:

My Software

LWN: Python and the Infinite
My opinions and suggestions on some of Python’s mathematical inconsistencies. TL;DR: add inf and nan, and change how math-based exceptions are structured.
