Mathblogging.org Weekly Picks
March 22, 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.
- At Xi’an’s Og, Christian Robert reviews a preprint on resampling and GPU parallelism and shares some thoughts after a referee report for one of his own papers comes in.
- The authors of Math Drudge published a new collection of experimental math papers.
- Hydrobates, writes about the Einstein-Boltzmann system and a recent paper by Ho Lee and himself.
- Science in the Sands introduces his new preprint with Aron J. Ahmadia on Runge-Kutta stability regions.
Reviews, Exposition, etc.
- At God Plays Dice, Michael Lugo reviews Taking Sudoku Seriously.
- 0xDE has filled in a lot of red ink on Wikipedia’s List of people with Erdős numbers.
- Physics Tutorial adds another post on Laplace’s equation.
- At Statistical Modeling, Causal Inference and Social Studies, Andrew Gelman compares economics exceptionalism to Freudian psychology in the 1950s.
- Michael Trick needs some optimization for this summer’s conference traveling.
- At Nuit Blanche, Igor Carron gives a lot of background on the upcoming Graph Lab workshop (including a follow up Q&A).
- At Turing’s Invisible Hand, Noam Nisan turns the table and asks commenters to share job announcements.
- The blog of the Institute of Mathematics and its applications reports on the Mathematics Matters seminar at the Parliamentary and Scientific Committee.
