Weekly Picks

July 19, 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.

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.


  • 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.
