Abandonware
For a young mathematician, there is a lot of pressure to publish (or perish). The role of forprofit academic publishing is to publish large amounts of crappy mathematics papers, make a lot of money, but at least in return grant … Continue reading

How not to be wrong
I recently finished listening to Jordan’s book “how not to be wrong,” and thought that I would record some of the notes I made. Unlike other reviews, Persiflage will cut through to the key aspects of the book which perhaps … Continue reading
Abelian Spiders
This is a blog post about the thesis of my student Zoey Guo, who is graduating this year. (For a blog post on the thesis of my other student graduating this year, see this.) Let be a finite graph. Associated … Continue reading

Mysterious Formulae
I’m not one of those mathematicians who is in love with abstraction for its own sake (not that there’s anything wrong with that). I can still be seduced by an explicit example, or even — quell horreur — a definite … Continue reading

The Artin conjecture is rubbish
Let be a continuous irreducible representation. Artin conjectured that the Lfunction is analytically continues to an entire function on (except for the trivial representation where the is a simple pole at one) and satisfies a functional equation of a precise … Continue reading

Is Serre’s conjecture still open?
The conjecture in this paper has indeed been proven. But that isn’t the entire story. Serre was fully aware of Katz modular forms of weight one. However, Serre was too timid was prudently conservative and made his conjecture only for … Continue reading
