Pinned toot

By the way, I am applying for PhD. If any of you know of vacancies, I am interested.

My interest is in theoretical mathematics. I would like to do something in number theory, geometry and combinatorics. Other than that, I do not have very rigid constraints for a PhD topic.

My master's thesis is about Coding theory. Before that, I did a small project reading about Arithmetic hyperbolic 3-manifolds.

Anyone interested in a mastodon instance focused on India? I have seen that many Indian users on Twitter have to go through vicious trolling.

The philosophy is to have a hate-speech free version of Twitter for Indians, free of fake news and IT Cells. We'll have bots to follow Modi, Gandhi, Kejriwal, etc. and some news websites. The servers could be crowdfunded.

Boost to show support, comment to discuss.

The Erdös number is a measure of publication closeness to mathematician Paul Erdös. Anyone who's co-authored a paper with Erdös has a number of 1, anyone who's co-authored a paper with someone who co-authored a paper with Erdös has a number of 2, etc.

By some accounts, baseball player Hank Aaron has an Erdös number of 1. He signed a baseball alongside Paul Erdös when he was awarded an honorary degree, and many consider the baseball to be a publication.

Mastodon is dozens of direct messages regarding cancer and emotional support. People helping people. This is what I love. Mastodon is also dozens of direct messages regarding right wing Hindu nationalist policies in India with a believer. Uuugh! I'm taking one for the team, today. Yikes!

The only thing missing about mastodon for me is that I see no one to discuss Indian politics with.

Hi lovely people of mastodon

I am searching for a few genderqueer people who could consult me on the topic of gender fluidity from their own experience. I haven't started my research yet (vacation time!), but I will hopefully do that in a few weeks, so I've decided to start planning it out now.

Approx. preferable form of communication: email.

If you are ready to share your story, your social struggles, explain perceptional/psychological nuances,

DM me please!

Boosts are welcome

Is there any way through which I can restrict Google's authorization excess. I want to use Gmail but not be logged in when I open Youtube or make searches, for example.

Quora is actively polluting the internet with bullshit questions, fake news and conspiracy theories. Many Quora answers with clearly biased views often pop up in routine searches! Thanks to their rubbish "use your real name" policy, you can also see who these idiots answering the questions are and judge them.

There should be a campaign to remove this abomination of a website from existence.

Hey! Is there a "bang" that can directly open the top entry without showing all the search results? Sort of like "!fl" but without going through google.

I have set my phone's device name to "Pology". So now whenever I use my bluetooth headset, I hear "Connected to-Pology".

Dear friendly neighborhood Mathstodon,

I am writing a statement of purpose for my PhD applications. Would a kind fellow math student review it for me (over direct messages, of course)?

My research group of digital medievalists in #Vienna is advertising for a new funded PhD studentship! If you want to do cool tech stuff about the middle ages then do apply and come join us (also, it's an excuse to move to Vienna and Vienna is nice):
