Counting and Adding

Very enjoyable lecture on partition numbers. Deep but accessible, especially first half. Hat tip: The Endeavour.


I used to know a bunch of clever mathematical physicists. The only discipline to which any of them would admit being in awe was Number Theory.

This shows that there is no market for an ethical code of behavior for mathematicians....

It's great to see a mathematician who can present well. There are a few out there (John Conway is awe-inspiring!) but most, even among the very good ones, are poor presenters.

Hey, I tried to email you regarding this post but can't seem to reach you. Please email me when get a moment. Thanks.
