Weekly Picks

April 25, 2012 § Leave a comment

We try to read every blog post that goes through 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 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.


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