Hallo, new Mastodon users! Here on mathstodon.xyz we've got a couple of mathematical emoji: and . I'd love to add some more. If you can make a PNG image the same size as those, send it to me and I'll add it. Faces of famous mathematicians are an easy place to start; could we have some shapes, polyhedra, or other mathographics too?

Not sure why, but this is very satisfying

@esoterica compare and contrast with "*A* Mathematical Coloring Book", by Marshall Hampton http://read.somethingorotherwhatever.com/entry/Hampton2009

New entry!

The Mathematical Coloring Book

Article by Alexander Soifer

In collection: Attention-grabbing titles

Due to the author's correspondence with Van der Waerden, Erdös, Baudet, members of the Schur Circle, and others, and due to voluminous archival materials uncovered by the author over 18 years of his work on the book, this book contains...

I <3 CW and mute. I want everyone to be able to speak. I want to choose what I listen to frequently. I want to explore. Here that's possible! No stress... I <3 even streams I mute, they just aren't for me.

I wonder if mathematical research breakthroughs can only become more complex and niche over time, or if there are still simple discoveries out there lurking in everybody's blind spots

Just made a little tombstone emojo for #proofinatoot-s:

A brief history of the evolution of grammars, parsers and compilerse from 400 BCE onwards.

A #math #puzzle from Matthew Doty, via John Baez:

Let a∘b = ⌊a/b⌋, for natural numbers a and b.

Show that (a∘b)∘c = a∘(b×c) for all a,b,c.

There's a proof using category theory! https://forum.azimuthproject.org/discussion/1942/applied-adjunctions-compiler-optimization/p1

LB is everything Masto hates, a birdsite RT and an image with no description, but it make me laugh hard.

Image is Theresa May saying "one of my constituents is moving to the Caribbean"

somebody (maybe Amber Rudd? I'm the worst at identifying people) saying "Jamaica?"

and May saying "yes."

RT @bounder@twitter.com: Excellent work

It's a good job the department's having a bake sale today, because it's not even 11am and I've eaten both of my lunch sandwiches

aaaa math is hard
