An Update on Shinichi Mochizuki, InterUniversal Teichmüller Theory, and the ABC Conjecture
‘The occasion was a conference on the work of Shinichi Mochizuki, a brilliant mathematician at Kyoto University who in August 2012 released four papers that were both difficult to understand and impossible to ignore. He called the work “interuniversal Teichmüller … Continue reading

From Math Stack Exchange: How to choose a proper contour for a contour integral?
One of the great difficulties with contour integration is choosing an appropriate contour. Like integration itself, there are few rules and choosing the right contour is a matter of intuition, experience, and trial and error. A member of math stack … Continue reading

The vector algebra war: A historical perspective
‘There are a wide variety of different vector formalisms currently utilized in science. For example, Gibbs threevectors, spacetime fourvectors, complex spinors for quantum mechanics, quaternions used for rigid body rotations and Clifford multivectors. With such a range of vector formalisms … Continue reading
