Mathblogging.org Weekly Picks

July 19, 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 “Applied” blogs.

Exposition, Interviews etc.

  • At The Laughing Mathematician, Thomas Wooley interviews Andrew Hodges, author of “Alan Turing: The Enigma”.
  • Mr. Palomar (translation) concludes his series on quantum computing with a post on Peter Shor’s famous algorithm.
  • At The Endeavour, John Cook explains how to computationally deal with logarithms of large factorials.

Community

  • At mathbabe, Cathy O’Neill explains why mathematicians know how to admit they are wrong (in mathematics at least).
  • At Turing’s Invisible Hand, Ariel Procaccia wonders about impartial division of scientific credit.
  • The Geomblog features a guest post by Samira Daruki on the Women in Theory workshop at Princeton.

Research

Enjoy!

Reviews, Exposition, etc.

Community

  • The discussion following a guest post at Xi’an’s Og in defense of refereeing produced a proper preprint — it’s so good that it has already been rejected once!
  • Mathbabe wonders what data science PhDs are worth when they can’t access the data from private companies.
  • At Algorithms, game theory, social choice […] etc, Haris Aziz gives a shout out to his co-author winning “best presentation by a young scientist” at the Matching Markets Conference.

Research

  • Regularize can stop being bothered by three problems in complexity — RIP & NSP are NP-hard and homotopy for l1 has exponential growth.
  • Nathaniel Johnston shares some notes on norms and dual norms in finite dimensional Hilbert spaces.

Enjoy!

  • At the Geomblog, Suresh Venkatasubramanian explains new ways to minimize communication for distributed computations.
  • At OR in an OB world, Paul Rubin explains how to find K best solutions to an optimization.

Reviews, Exposition, etc.

  • Math Encounters Blog deconstructs the dispersion formula for optical fiber.
  • At Nuit Blanche, Igor Carron lets the invisible Mercedes disappear and detect its appearance.

Community

  • At Statistical Modeling, Causal Inference and Social Science, Andrew Gelman shared his (contradicting) views on two + two proposals  for alternative peer review systems.

Enjoy!
