Yesterday I listened to an episode of Relatively prime called Chinook. And it has been one of the most compelling stories I have ever heard. It was a fantastic but also sad story about checkers and man against machine, a battle that lasted two decades. Relatively Prime is a series of eight shows all about the stories behind […]

Another Monday is upon us, and another batch of links is due. This week I'm going to focus on Dynamic Programming (or DP for short). The reason is that upcoming Project Euler problems are DP- and memoization heavy. Another reason is that DP problems are quite popular, so it's definitely a good skill to have.Take a look inside for more.

This Monday I have a couple of links lined up, both math related and non-math related. An interesting mathematics Wikibook, an exciting website with a collection of fun programming exercises, introduction to Git and introduction to primality testing, all in today's Monday links. Take a look inside the post for further details.

I have a few links for you this week that I have chewed through and found interesting. First I found a few papers that I think are really nice recreational mathematics on a few different topics such as primes, fractals and calculation of the square root.So here is a bit to keep you intelligently entertained.

The links I will post today is a bit on the lighter side of mathematics. But hey mathematics is not about being bored it is about having fun all the way through. First I have found a few games that requires some logic thinking and in one of the cases knowledge of how functions evolve. The first game is […]

I often post some links to interesting sites on Twitter, and once in a while I take the links I have collected and post them here as well for you to take a look at. Here are a few links I have collected over the last few weeks. Explanation of imaginary numbers. First of all […]

Samuel Hansen has come up with the great proposal of making an 8 part podcast called Relatively prime which he describes asRelatively Prime will be an 8 episode audio podcast featuring stories from the world of mathematics. Tackling questions like: is it true that you are only 7 seven handshakes from the President, what exactly is a micromort, and how did 39 people commenting on a blog manage to prove a deep theorem. Relatively Prime will feature interviews with leaders of mathematics, as well as the unsung foot soldiers that push the mathematical machine forward. With each episode structured around topics such as: The Shape of Things, Risk, and Calculus Wars, Relatively Prime will illuminate each area by delving into the history, applications, and people that underlie the subject that is the foundation of all science.

Like I have done once before, here are a few chosen links I have stumbled upon over the last few weeks. The only requirement for the links is that I found them interesting and they relate to math or science somewhat.

First of all, you should check out the tools section. I just published a small game called Prime Shoot Out. A few links to other places which I posted on Twitter already: I have found a good primer on some of the basics of set theory. A mathematicians survival guide And not least: How to […]
