When I accept a problem requiring solution I throw myself wholeheartedly into it, working for days on nothing else, eating lunch while working and staying up late into the night tweaking ideas.
Techniques Elie Wolfe Uses:
For mathematics and physics I employ computer simulations and algebraic analysis aided by Mathematica and similar systems. I research computer problems on the internet, but mostly develop solutions based on my understanding of the nature of the hardware/software involved. I also frequently consult textbooks at public and university libraries, including in recreation.
