I will be travelling for the next ten days or so. First up is the big Math Symposium at Western Kentucky University, this Friday. I will be delivering two scintallating, edge-of-your seats barn-burners, both aimed at undergraduates. One will be on primes in arithmetic progressions, the other will be on using Bayes’ Theorem to illustrate the differences between the Monty Hall problem and the game show Deal or No Deal. Fun!
Then it’s off to Illinois for a conference on Extremal Combinatorics. I’m not speaking at that one, but I will have a chance to see some of the big names in my subject area talk about a lot of trendy, supercool mathematics. More fun!
Then it’s off to New Jersey to spend Thanksgiving with my family. Most fun of all!
Sadly, the blog will be on hiatus until I return. Guess I picked the wrong time to start a fight about agnosticism! (Yes, you should be picturing Lloyd Bridges in Airplane when reading that last line.)
