Halloween
A playful collection of reviews for Halloween Mathematicians have a special way with language. For us a manifold is not going to be found attached to the engine of your car. You would never use a mathematical pole to propel your … Continue reading
John Wehausen and his indepth look at surface waves
John V. Wehausen was the fifth Executive Editor at Mathematical Reviews, from 1950 to 1956. Wehausen has connections to the University of Michigan (BS and PhD) and to Brown (instructor), both of which institutions were hosts to Mathematical Reviews at one time or another. … Continue reading

John Urschel, a wellknown mathematician you might not have heard of
A recent paper by John Urschel just came across my desk. Urschel has three papers in MathSciNet. The latest is “A cascadic multigrid algorithm for computing the Fiedler vector of graph Laplacians” in the Journal of Computational Mathematics. Like many of the authors … Continue reading
Geometry and Computational Complexity Theory
Mathematics flourishes when ideas from one area of mathematics can be used in another area. For a long time (certainly since Descartes), algebra has been a great asset to geometry. In return, geometry has been helpful to algebra, for instance … Continue reading
