Looking over some old posts of @icecolbeveridge I came across this curiosity:
13 cos(ln(2)) ~ 10.
Why should cos(ln(2)) be very close to 10/13 ... any reason?
Or is it "Just because"?
Hello! My name is Colin and I am a mathematician.
Today would have been sprinter Betty Robinson’s 110th birthday. (Listen to this: https://thememorypalace.us/betty-robinson/ ). If you’ve had a disaster and need help to turn it around, let me know what I can do!
Hello! I checked the calendar, and it is Monday. I checked my passport and my name is Colin. I checked my job description and I’m a mathematician. And, as always, I’m here to offer whatever assistance I can.
So, what can I help you with this week?
Right now, I’m putting the finishing touches on a biomechanics project to find the angles between the various parts of a leg as it exercises. I had hoped to use quaternions, but sadly Euler angles were the order of the day. It was still fun!
My name is Colin, it is Monday, and I am a mathematician.
Also, here’s a fictionalised version of something I helped with last year: https://colinbeveridge.co.uk/how-can-i-help/nick-bourbaki-pi-and-the-case-of-the-lost-election/

Here’s a (fictionalised and anonymised) account of one problem I cracked last week: https://colinbeveridge.co.uk/how-can-i-help/nick-bourbaki-pi-and-the-case-of-the-mysterious-interference/
