"Though all to ruin fell the world,

and were dissolved and backward hurled,

unmade into the old abyss,

yet were its making good, for this -

the dusk, the dawn, the earth, the sea -

that Lúthien for a time should be."

---Song of Parting, J.R.R. Tolkien

Finally starting to be able to understand a few elementary Wikipedia articles on Algebraic Geometry =)

Yes!!

Mathematics Made Difficult is a book by Carl. E Linderholm that uses advanced mathematical methods to prove results normally shown using elementary proofs. Although the aim is largely satirical, it al...

"This section is about addition. The fact that the reader has been told this does not necessarily mean that he knows what the section is about, at all. He still has to know what addition is, and that he may not yet know. It is the author's fond hope that he may not even know it after he has read the whole section."

The ideas of the Yoneda Lemma are sort of blowing my mind.

The only things that I ever see on Google+ are +Life at Google posts, and +Drew Blomquist's cats. I guess I'm kind of okay with it.

I'd like to point out I photograph garbage and laundromats, too. Have a nice day! ;)

The largest open problem in mathematics today is finding a word for "a bunch of objects" with has no prior connotation.

"[...]Perhaps the most revolutionary aspect of the proof was its length: before the Feit–Thompson paper, few arguments in group theory were more than a few pages long and most could be read in a day. Once group theorists realized that such long arguments could work, a series of papers that were several hundred pages long started to appear. Some of these dwarfed even the Feit–Thompson paper; Aschbacher and Smith's paper on quasithin groups was 1221 pages long."

I don't know what that means but that is a long proof.

Be your own archetype.

Introduction

I am a graduate of Stevens Institute of Technology with B.S. and M.S. degrees in Computer Science, together with a minor in Pure & Applied Mathematics. I am currently working as a Game Developer for High 5 Games in the Chelsea district of Manhattan.

My interests include programming, the study and practice of mathematics, writing, video game design, running, music, and literature. I have a mild obsession with the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien, and an undying passion for Sicilian pizza.
