It's that time of year again!  Presenting the 2014 math bracket.  School with the best math department wins every game.  As always, all rulings were made by a group, so don't yell at me if your dep...

I'd really like to see UW take Michigan one of these years.

I'm a very big fan of Nate Silver, and I'll have the pleasure of interviewing him on stage in San Francisco later this spring.  This is an MSRI event.  Tickets and more information at http://www.commonwealthclub.org/events/2014-05-02/nate-silver

People of Google+, if you are also on that OTHER social network and want to hear about reviews, events, and other news concerning my book upcoming HOW NOT TO BE WRONG, there's now a Facebook page about it, which you may, if this is your bag, "like."

How does one get an iPhone to function as a remote control to flip through Beamer slides displayed in Adobe Reader?  Or is it better to display the Beamer slides some other way if I want to do this?

I tried this with the app "Rowmote". The irritating thing is that the iPhone has bluetooth, but there doesn't seem to be an app to use it to connect with a computer. I think there is a remote app that's usable with Keynote. Anyway, the issue I've had with rowmote is that it works over wifi. It usually works fine for me at home, but somehow it doesn't always work in the lecture hall (I think it has to do with firewalls for the secure wifi at Berkeley and elsewhere). But I have used it a couple of times successfully. Also, I use it with the pdf viewer "Skim" instead of Adobe Reader (this goes for other remote controls as well).

Funny to read this title. Apparently Brian hasn’t changed: he was invariably the questioner in our freshman year analysis class in 1988. Professor Mark McConnell was very graceful about it, and the rest of its all learned something.

Does sage not like to compute the discriminant of a polynomial over a finite field that's not a prime field?  (+William Stein )

If you like plain old static webpages, on the other hand, I've got that too!
