Pinned toot

Hi! I'm a maths student at Helsinki University. For the past year or so I've been writing a popular (not as in visitors) maths blog, www.nollakohta.fi, in Finnish. In addition to human languages (FIN/ENG/SWE/FRE) I respond to quite a few computer ones (esp. C#).

Interested in seeing if toots > tweets!

I should take my chance at #introductions

I'm a mathematics PhD. Unemployed by academia, but at least working in Geographic Information Services. My work was in inviscid fluids and Monte Carlo methods, but I keep thinking I know knot theory better than I do.

is my pop-mathematics blog. Its big features are essays based on topics raised by comic strips, and a roughly annual A-To-Z feature describing one mathematics term for each letter.

Visited #Oodi, the new centrum #library in #Helsinki. It is as amazing as in pictures, and still packed with visitors two weeks after opening.

The book collection is not very large, the focus is rather in the shared space. Lots of reading and working space and a large children’s area. Early next year, a floor devoted to making and crafting (3D printers, sewing machines, recording studios...) will open.

Looking for a bit bigger #maths #puzzle? My Christmas crossnumber, inspired by the amazing @chalkdustmag conundrum, is here once again! https://www.nollakohta.fi/2018/12/jouluristikot-2018.html#english
