This is a fun project by one of my colleagues +Daniel Rockmore. The original gallery is a collection of ten aquatints produced from the contributions of ten mathematicians and physicists in response to the prompt to transcribe their "most beautiful mathematical expression." Now there is a studio where you can share your own responses!

Concinnitas is the title of a portfolio of fine art prints, published by Bob Feldman of Parasol Press in collaboration with the Yale University Art Gallery and Bernard Jacobson Gallery and curated by Dan Rockmore; executed by the fine print printshop Harlan & Weaver, Inc. It is a collection of ...

“He’s like a modern-day Einstein,” says Frenkel, author of "Love and Math," a book about the Langlands Program. “But everybody knows about Einstein and nobody knows about Langlands. Why is that?”

A major profile of Robert Langlands and the Langlands Program in The Toronto Star, which not only exposes the ideas involved but emphasizes the "human element." Making discoveries in math is a creative pursuit very much like that of a poet or an artist.
Canadian Robert Langlands is 'like a modern-day Einstein,' who has devoted his life to the limits of pure mathematics

Math can be funny! Check out Riot at the Calc Exam and Other Mathematically Bent Stories by Colin Adams. It makes a great holiday gift! One reviewer says that Adams is “one of the funniest mathematicians I have ever met.” http://bit.ly/1yQp6Dr

Dear Emacs friends: 

Recently, for some reason unbeknownst to me, every evaluation of the keybinding C-c C-v on my TeX + AUCTex buffer freezes my aquamacs and what is more, after sometime, aquamacs revives itself. 

I have no idea how to gauge what the problem. 

So, any help/pointers towards collecting some preliminary data useful for diagnosis would be very welcome. 

Sincerely, 
An Emacs User whose productivity has taken a hit: 100 key strokes and 5 minutes of time spent watching the rainbow wheel go round and round.

Have you tried profiling?
Have you tried emacs -Q?
Have you tried top?

I know I have circled many mathematicians. So, let us see how this goes: 

Do you use the laplace's method, saddle point method or the method of stationary phase in your research or teach these in a course? If so, do you have a reference that you personally like? 

I would appreciate any response. Thanks.

I hope u mean the method of solving diff eqn using laplace transform, i remember doing such things in my UG and simmons(Diff Eqns with applications) was a good reference, though not very elaborate

A song about Grothendieck

There are many songs in the world about love and loss, heartbreak and heart-ache. There are altogether fewer about algebraic geometry in the style of Alexander Grothendieck. Here is my attempt to fill that gap.

The lyrics and other details are available on my website:

Excited, Excited! SMC is now open source.

See William Stein's post: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/sage-cloud/SFOB9y63A7Q/8HCHG2y7D7sJ
Hi, SageMathCloud is now completely open source. The complete source code is here, so if you've ever wondered how something in SMC works, you can now find out... https://github.com/sagemath/cloud. There is also a new developer mailing list: ...

There you go! SMC is going to be soon available for the public viewing without an account (but seriously, WHY would you use SMC without an account on it?!)

In fact this feature used to work a long time ago, then they brought down the server hosting the Sage published worksheets. (Or maybe turned that feature off.) Can't really fault them, as (presumably) they ran out of resources to maintain it, but ideally links shouldn't go dead on the internet...
