June 28, 2012 § Leave a comment

We try to read every blog post that goes through Mathblogging.org. For the Weekly Picks, we collect posts in one category from last week to give you an impression of what the mathematical blogosphere has to offer. (Read this for more information on this change.)

Last week, we focused on “General“, “Journalism“, and “Institutions.

Exposition

  • In memory of Alan Turing’s 100th birthday, many posts went up last week. This week’s range of topics pointed us to three in particular. At the LMS’s De Morgan Journal, Barry Cooper writes on the bullying of British geeks, Maurizio Codogno (translation) explains the Turing Google doodle and at Dueallamenouno (translation) Roberto Natalini portrays Turing and the much less known Turing-Murray theorem explaining animal fur markings.
  • The Renaissance Mathematicus portrays James Short. the greatest maker of 18th century reflecting telescopes.
  • Degree of Freedom explains why a cube cannot be dissected into pairwise different cubes.

Institutions

  • At SIAM connect, Shigui Ruan and Daozhou Gao explain their recent work on modeling malaria.

Journalism

Enjoy!
