Finals Week

May 3, 2010

After The Month of Relentless Conferences, I am back. There were five weekends in April (the last one spilled into May), and I have four conferences that I should have attended (the fifth weekend was Easter weekend). I ended up skipping one of the conferences, which made life more manageable. But I ended up presenting at two of the other three.

So that’s my excuse for not posting. That, and midterms and preparing for finals.

But it is now finals week, and I hope to start posting regularly again. To start, I am always delighted when the New York Times writes about group theory. So I will merely pass that on for this post.

Radiolab

The excellent NPR science show Radiolab recently did a show on mathematics. They discuss topics such as an infant’s understanding of quantity, Erdös numbers, and the surprising Benford’s Law. You can listen or download here.
