Weekly Picks

August 10, 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 “Pure Researchers.



  • Summertime is conference time. Here are a few posts reporting from meetings: SymOmega‘s Gordon Royle visit the Third Workshop on Graphs and Matroids in Maastricht, PhD+Epsilon‘s Adriana Salerno went to three workshops and Peter Cameron was at the Workshop on Homogeneous Structures in Prague.
  • Also including some workshop material, Emanuel Kowalski shares multiple research related news.
  • At the Edinburgh Mathematical Physics Groups, José Figueroa-O’Farrill does some research-blogging about his joint paper on homogeneity conjecture for supergravity backgrounds.


  • Scott Aaronson alerted the community that the Complexity Zoo was down — it’s back up but volunteers are still needed.
  • Not Even Wrong, Peter Woit shares his thoughts on The Fundamental Physics prize.
  • At Piece of Mind, Nassif Ghoussoub believes the Canadian government is starting to get it.
  • Gyre&Gimble ponders mathematical and linguistical ability.
