Ah yes I'll have the macmac + maccheese +cheesemac + cheesecheese

me, calculating the Gini Coefficient on a Lorenz Curve: what the fuck

Feral Egyptian cats trying to eat my backpack. Cute and scary. So basically, cats.

Broke: converges in distribution
Woke: converges in probability
Bespoke: converges almost surely

As I read stuff written in the 1930s by Norbert Wiener, I’m really impressed by the clear and approachable language and narrative, so unlike today’s academese ._.

The Three Genders of tops:

Euler, Lagrange, and Kovalevskaya

Hot take: out fuzzy perception of quantities, like brightness/loudness/even distance, may not only be logarithmic, it might even be Lambert W-like.

I made a stupid mistake when expanding some asymptotics and stumbled upon the Catalan numbers ._.

What's your favorite prime number

@zoec and bc of age (with COBOL), they both are perforated languages

I made a guest post at the n-Category Café, thanks to a kind invitation by John Baez! The plan is for it to be the first of a series:


#quantum #physics

Imagine if all numbers were only 1 digit long. Like they all had a unique digit so they'd be a lot shorter but you'd have to memorize a billion unique symbols.

math thoughts 

my favorite things in math involve finding discrete, combinatorial structure in squishy, continuous things like smooth functions and manifolds (or vice versa, finding some analysis-y object that encodes properties of some discrete thing that you're interested in)

i always found the de facto division of mathematics into algebra-y stuff and analysis-y stuff weird and uncomfortable but hey, i've never really been into binaries :V
