Linearization of Single Variable Non-Linear function

Linearization is a way to approximate a non-linear function around a point. In the blog post, I’ll show an implementation of best linearization of an equation around a point using Newton-raphson method. Before proceeding further, please note the following. Newton raphson is better suited for monotonic functions or in the regions where monotonic behaviour is seen.

Converting Video to Matroska Format using ffmpeg

My primary use case of ffmpeg had been to reduce the size of the downloaded online lectures. The output format did not actually matter for those videos as it seemed that the humongous file size of Powerpoint screen recording seems to be due to absence of proper encoding (not sure though).
