For the long days of ICM 2014 lectures, and long flights to and from Seoul, some mathematical gymnastics is needed. And this is precisely what Omer Angel taught us in his recent visit. Combining gymnastic with a demonstration of parallel … Continue reading
Maryam Mirzakhani received the medal from South Korea’s president Park Geun-hye. Here is an article from today’s Israeli newspaper Haaretz. It is based on this article by the Guardian (Thanks, Manor!). See also this post on Laba’s accidental mathematician and John Baez’ … Continue reading
Gian Carlo Rota Rota’s conjecture I just saw in the Notices of the AMS a paper by Geelen, Gerards, and Whittle where they announce and give a high level description of their recent proof of Rota’s conjecture. The 1970 conjecture asserts … Continue reading
David Kazhdan, a very famous mathematician from my department with a super-human understanding of mathematics (and more) is recovering from a terrible bike accident. Here is an article about him from “Maariv.” (In Hebrew) Amnon Shashua, a computer science … Continue reading
