 It’s carnival time!

Issue # 21 in the Carnival of Mathematics series is up now over at the (not so) Secret Blogging Seminar.

The resulting discussion there amuses at least me.

The new carnival of mathematics is up over at PolyMathematics.
Yours truly is featured, but other than that, there seems to be heavy overweight on the educator side.

Do we have the volume for a Carnival of Research Mathematics?

 Slumps and crunches

This term of teaching ends next week.

When I got back from T’bilisi, just over a month ago, I had research leads that I expect will end in three different publications.

I was slated with writing one LARP report for a swedish gaming magazine, and a series of various popular mathematics articles for the local student-run mathematics magazine here.

All in all, very many things converged this June/July for me.

It has started paying off though – the gaming article is published, and yesterday I submitted the first of the T’bilisi articles to the Journal of Homotopy and Related Structures as well as to the arXiv.

I now am listed on the arXiv with three papers, out of which one is already published, one is rejected (not unjustly so), and one is just submitted for review.

 Carnival of Mathematics 10

Is now up at Math Notations. The current host further suggests a split in undergrad+ and undergrad- categories – with the simpler and didactics focused posts in one carnival and the research and/or advanced mathematical posts in another. Personally, I think the momentum the carnival has is a good thing, and that a split should wait until we habitually turn away more posts than we’re comfortable with. This volume is not yet actually there – wherefore I’d be against a split.


 T’bilisi and Carnival # 9

First off, I have a travellog of sorts over at my Livejournal.

Further on, jd2718 just posted the newest Carnival of Mathematics, as so often otherwise, I do feature.

 8th Carnival of Mathematics

Is up at the GeomBlog.

This fortnight has a lot of goodies, among those a call for reading Grothendieck and a blogpost by Ian Stewart.

Go read.

 7th Carnival of Mathematics

I have been somewhat remiss in announcing these lately – but over at nOnoscience, the 7th Carnival of Mathematics just got posted.

I’m featured again – as are many other very readable bloggers. Go. Read.

 4th Carnival of Mathematics posted

The fourth Carnival of Mathematics is up at EvolutionBlog.

Featured this time around are homological algebra, representation theory, Rubik’s cube solutions, Bernoulli processes, topology, number theory, and much much more.

 Carnival of Mathematics #3

And it is with pride that I welcome you all to my first issue, and the third issue all in all, of the Carnival of Mathematics. I probably should apologize as well – my announcement stated March 8th, but that was before I really looked at the dates involved, so we did, alas, miss the international women’s day. We haven’t had quite the rush that Mark CC enjoyed, but we’ll make a good one even so.

First out, from the first half of our submissions, we have a grand tour of didactic topics, starting out with Michael Tang, who shows us why negative times negative is positive, with a touch of ring theory into the mix. Following that, Rebecca Newburn discusses equation solving strategies and Laurie Bluedorn takes a historical view on the age of introduction of formal arithmetic. To finish it up, jd2718 tells us about teaching complex numbers and your humble host has a manifesto of sorts about stimulating strong students.

 Carnival of mathematics, issue 2

The second carnival of mathematics is up over at Good Math, Bad Math. It’s again a nice, good read. Go.

The third carnival of mathematics is to be hosted by yours truly on the International Women’s Day (maybe we can get a theme going? Women in mathematics, anyone?). Submissions to me directly or over the submission form.

 First carnival of mathematics is up!

Over at Alon’s place, Abstract Nonsense, the first issue of the forthnightly Carnival of Mathematics is up.

Go there. Read. There’s a LOT of good blog posts there.
