Note: WIP/TODO work in progress
As an exercise in destilling information from things I read, it may help to see how paraphrasing book contents serves. This means extracting titles and maybe adding short notes, so if I reread them later I can see how much of the book itself I can stll recall and recall the thought process behind it. Sometimes this may be the same as a reprint of the contents, sometimes things will be paraphrased.
Most of this book seems quite natural (ok, it is, beside the math parts at times), but the nice point of it is the way it gets you into it's proposed mindset while reading it, so you submerge the steps more self-conciously.
Essential substeps in each of the four phases:
Analyse the problem statement as good as you can.
Gather all facts and order them in ways that come naturally to you.
After memorizing the problem and familiarizing with its domain, remember similar problems' solutions', ask others. Think of what you can gain in the aftermath. See how far you can get with your current ideas, even if they are incomplete.
execute the idea of your solution, checking each step forward after it was done.
Simplify your solution as much as you can. Try applying it to other problems.
See how your problem-solving skill improved.
Some notes on Bolzano's motives about his notes about the subject of heuristics.
Bright ideas are sudden leaps toward the solution at an inappreciable time
Try variating steps towards the solution to come up with a better or different one.
can the solution be applied to other problems, which are not variations of the previous one?
Requirements to the einironment of the problem domain may
Eliminate redundant conditiones, check how contradicting conditions relate and when they matter.
General solution for another problem upon which you stumble during solving the current problem.
See how the data relates to get nearer to the solution.
rephrase / redefine to get to different views.
