Mathematical Reviews at #JMM2019

See Mathematical Reviews at JMM: coda, by Edward Dunne, Executive Editor of Mathematical Reviews on the Beyond Reviews: Inside MathSciNet blog. He thanks visitors who came to the Mathematical Reviews booth in the AMS exhibit area and took the opportunity to converse with editors, ask questions about MathSciNet and about reviewing, see scheduled and impromptu demos, and update their author profiles. He’s also grateful for the opportunity to talk with several publishers and librarians who gave helpful feedback on the prototype journal pages shown at JMM. Mathematical Reviews again hosted the always-popular reception for the math community, and MathSciNet was offered complimentary to all at #JMM2019. If you talked with editors, saw a demo, came to the MR Reception or made use of MathSciNet while at JMM, Ed Dunne welcomes your feedback in the comments section after the blog post.

Math is Beautiful: A Snapshot from the JMM Exhibits Hall

There is so much beautiful math in the exhibits hall–seriously, there is no way I could give a survey of everything down here!  So instead I’ll just share a snapshot (or a few) of one of the great exhibitors. Diana Davis is a mathematician studying periodic billiard paths (primarily on pentagons!), a Visiting Assistant Professor at Swarthmore, and Artist/Creative Chief/CEO of Math is Beautiful (“But it’s just me,” Diana says when I run this title by her–yes, she is the sole employee of her small company).  She makes and sells earrings, coasters, T-shirts, and other items featuring her mathematical creations/discoveries and social justice.  I stopped by to see Diana’s Math is Beautiful booth in aisle 200 of the exhibits hall (100 level of the Baltimore Convention Center).  She also has two beautiful pieces in the Mathematical Art Exhibit (right next to her booth in the Exhibits Hall).
