Math Blogs

In this post, P. Z. Myers briefly discusses a comment from Seed magazine to the effect that there are more blogs in chemistry and physics than in biology.

Which got me thinking: Does anyone out there know of any math blogs worth reading? Back when I first decided to enter the blogosphere, and had not yet decided what to blog about, I considered doing one myself. I ultimately decided evolution would be more fun and probably draw a bigger audience. But I'm sure there's someone out there performing the thankless task of making mathematics a little more approachable.

Also try http://www.arsmathematica.net/ which is good, if not updated hugely often.

Google's new blog search (http://www.google.com/blogsearch) gets nearly 300 hits on "math blog", though many are irrelevant. Here's one, though: http://tinyurl.com/cpka3.

Jacques Distler. I know he's physics, not math, but I sure can't tell them apart.

Wow, how nice to have these. Thanks for raising the question and for the responses.

I like, not that this means anything since I'm not a mathematician, Diary of a Black Mathematician, for which see here ( < http://homepage.mac.com/ehgoins/iblog/B335600579/ > ).

I smiled when I read PZ Myers'reference to Dr. Distler since for those of at the edges of physics and mathematics the world is so blurry but I think there is a difference. Peter Woit, a mathematician at Columbia University, NY and smart critic of string theory had a recent post (September 13) titled "How Much Mathematics Does a Theoretical Physicist Need to Know?" ( < http://www.math.columbia.edu/~woit/blog/

His comments and the responses are worth reading--thoughtful. I particularly liked a quote which John Baez posted.

Oddly enough, mathematicians at Northeastern University have been keeping a very cool blog elaborating on the math in episodes of the CBS show, Numbers. The blog, if not the show, is unexpectedly cool.

Hi jason,

With the same thinking approach i searched a lot for math blogs , but unfortunately the goodle blog search has thrown up too many non relevent blogs.. and sooner got tired of searching for blogs ...

unlike you i never took up the initiative for launching a own blog due to lack of time , but inturn opned my doors for search towards sites where in i can get "the most appropriate" results .

considering the viewers rating i considered www.educationtrak.com .... their way of approach is good.

Hope every body understood on what exactly i am looking for ..

So kindly please let me know if there are any other resources ..i am pretty sure that there could be atleast 1 form million search pages apart from what i mentioned .

cheers

I'm putting together a math blog that tries to explain troubling concepts to students. My site is http://sk19math.blogspot.com . I agree that searching for math blogs doesn't really provide a wide variety of relevant hits. Would you mind posting a link to my site so that I could hopefully increase the visibility of my site? Thanks!

The main idea can be briefly discussed in our writing company. The outline about their writing papers should be attractive and strongest to the students. The introduction and conclusion is the important section in custom essay writing service.
