Comment on Are Natural Mathematical Problems Bad Problems? by Gil Kalai
https://gilkalai.wordpress.com/2019/04/25/are-natural-mathematical-problems-bad-problems/#comment-59069
Thu, 25 Apr 2019 15:12:03 +0000http://gilkalai.wordpress.com/?p=17389#comment-59069In my view the sphere packing problem both in dimension 3, in other specific dimensions, and asymptotically is a great problem. I do agree that sometimes deeper understanding of matters lead to less natural questions that are better. I do think we can discuss the importance of questions while understanding the limitation of such discussions.

Comment on About Mathematics by An Invitation to a Conference: Visions in Mathematics towards 2000 | Combinatorics and more
https://gilkalai.wordpress.com/2008/10/12/about-mathematics/#comment-59018
Tue, 23 Apr 2019 15:40:53 +0000http://gilkalai.wordpress.com/?p=383#comment-59018[…] The proceedings appeared as GAFA special volumes, but alas the articles are not electronically available even to GAFA’s subscribers. Let me encourage both Birkhauser and the contributors to make them more available. My talk was: An invitation to Tverberg’s theorem, and my own contribution to the Proceedings Combinatorics with a Geometric Flavor is probably the widest scope survey article I ever wrote. At the end of each section I added a brief philosophical thought about mathematics and those are collected in the post “about mathematics“. […]
