(Infinite dimensional) Linear Algebra for the mathematically oriented physicist. I have been on the lookout for a book that has a nice introduction to Hilbert spaces -- chapter one does that. 
LINEAR MATHEMATICS IN INFINITE DIMENSIONS Signals Boundary Value Problems and Special Functions

John Bardeen, the leading condensed matter theorist of his day, was quite wrong when he dismissed a startling prediction by the unknown Brian Josephson.

John is my brother Suresh Govindarajan's brother-in-law who experienced a near drowning experience on Memorial Day and has since been in a coma. I appreciate your help with any contribution small or big which will go towards his medical expenses and transportation back to India.

Around the 9K mark at the TCS 10K in Bangalore on May 17, 2015. Finished in 55:44 -- a slow pace for me but it was fun running in a crowd.

According to Arnold’s classification, there are two ways to introduce a new subject: the first way (he called it the “Russian tradition”) is to start with “the simplest non-trivial partial case”. — I will use this approach. The second and the opposite tradition, which I also like very much (he called it “Bourbaki’s tradition”) is to start with an “extremely general case that is impossible to further generalise”.

Slides from Xavier Viennot's course titled Combinatorics and Physics given at IIT Madras during Jan/Feb/Mar 2015. It has been fun being the student for a change. Two more lectures to go. It will take me the rest of 2015 to digest the wide range of topics that he has covered.
Course IIT Madras. January-February 2015. Combinatorics and Physics. A website dedicated to this course with complements and solutions of exercises is also here. Abstract. The interaction between combinatorics and theoretical physics started in the 60's with a combinatorial resolution of the ...

Nice mix which highlights Jeff Beck's skill. Jeff Beck on the guitar and Swati Natekar provides the vocal version of Nadi(y)a.

Abstract: We aim to highlight certain points and considerations for graduate students and young researchers, which should be avoided in submissions to good research journals. Observing these remarks could substantially decrease the probability of rejections of papers.

Ran the half marathon in the  MEPZ run pacing a friend. I was targeting 2:03 to 2:05 but we achieved 2:06:45. I cramped towards the end(!) and mostly walked the last 500m which included a steep (20-30 degree) incline. Parts of the run were difficult largely due to poor road conditions (unevenness and pot holes). I also suspect that the distance was a little bit more than 21.1K -- runkeeper showed 21.62K for one person.
