Carnival of Mathematics

Biology bloggers have Tangled Bank. Medical bloggers have Grand Rounds. Neuroscience bloggers have Encephalon. And now math bloggers have the Carnival of Mathematics. If you have anything to blog about that’s related to math, it belongs here. Possible topics include,

- Proofs of theorems and formulas, whether in pure or applied math;
– Explanations of mathematical concepts, as basic as those on ScienceBlogs’ basic concepts series;
– Anything related to math education, from complaints about innumerate students to long-winded theories of how to teach math;
– Debunking bad math, especially when used to bolster bad science, bad economics, or bad politics;
– How to apply good math to other fields like physics, economics, computer science, and ;
– Math in popular culture: the TV series Numb3rs, the movies Pi and Proof, any book by Simon Singh, and so on.

Despite the mathematical inclination of the carnival, theoretical computer scientists and theoretical physicists are welcome to submit posts about their fields. Both disciplines are highly mathematized, and when it comes to such subfields as Lie theory, logic, and complexity theory, it’s hard to pinpoint where one discipline ends and other begins.

The posting schedule is every other Friday for now; we can drop to every fourth Friday or increase to every Friday based on demand later. For hosting requests, email me at alon_levy1@yahoo.com, and try including the words “Carnival of Mathematics” somewhere in the subject line to help me distinguish it from spam.

    I’m trying to think of “bad math” people use and the only two areas that come to my mind immediately are probability/statistics and basic logic.

    Will we se others?

  4. Odile Says:

    I have some topics about maths for children on my site. Maths and thinking: is there a relationship? Books?

  5. Alon Levy Says:

    Bryce, so far I don’t think there’s any bad math submission.

    Odile, if you think there’s something good enough to submit, just email it to me.

  6. Brent Says:

    Just a suggestion: could you make a new post here each time a new Carnival goes up, with a link to it? If you only edit this entry to add a link, it won’t show up in RSS, and I’m afraid I simply won’t remember to come back and check!

    Unless someone has already volunteered for the next Carnival (Oct. 3), we’ll host it over at 360. (And if someone has already claimed Oct. 3, we’ll take the next available opening.) Please spread the word.

    Calculating ahead from October 3 (hey, it’s mathematics), we would like to host October 31, Hallowe’en edition!

  19. Batman Says:

    Because of the delay for the soon-to-be 40th Carnival (over at Staring at Empty Pages, we’re hosting #41 on October 10, so…November 7 would be the Halloween edition. Except I want there to be a Halloween edition on Halloween, so I say go for it!
