En Passant V
(warning: today’s persiflage comes with possible extra snark due to sleep deprivation) The Ramanujan Machine: I learnt from John Baez on twitter about The Ramanujan Machine, a project designed to “help reveal [the] underlying structure” of the “fundamental constants” of … Continue reading
The stable cohomology of SL(F_p)
Back by popular demand: an actual mathematics post! Today’s problem is the following: compute the cohomology of for a (modp) algebraic representation. Step 0 is to say what this problem actually is. It makes sense to talk about certain algebraic … Continue reading

Harris versus Buzzard
Michael Harris has a new article at quanta. The piece is (uncharacteristically?) coy, referring to the laments of two logicians without divulging either their names or their precise objections, making oblique references to a cabal of 10 mathematicians meeting at … Continue reading
