On Remembrance Day 2021 (11 November) I have a talk at a session of Lightning Talks at a session on “Mathematics for Data Analysis, AI & Machine Learning” organised by the Monash Data Futures Institute. This was a “Lightning Talk”
I don’t know that I would have anything to say that’s not a platitude, but here are some thoughts.
As part of an upcoming workshop participants were asked to introduce themselves with a one-page slide. I took it as an extreme form of concision: summarise your maths research in one slide, Dan.
A fun fact from Euclidean geometry that I thought was a wonderful enough gem to share. It’s standard, but it’s nowhere near any curriculum. I’ll try not to get too snarky about the curriculum.
On 9 December 2020 I gave a (virtual) talk in the Topology session of the 2020 meeting of the Australian Mathematical Society.
On 7 December 2020 I gave a (virtual) lecture at the Australian Mathematical Olympiad Committee’s School of Excellence on congruences.
Here’s a nice maths problem, which I thought it would be fun to discuss. The question doesn’t involve any advanced concepts, but it leads on to a very nice result called Hensel’s lemma.
A long long time ago, in a galaxy far away, I wrote up an account of the Euler-Fermat theorem for school students.
Monash Open Day in 2020 was a purely online affair, thanks to COVID. I recorded a video talking about Topology: The Shape of Space.
I don’t have anything against people who want to stay at university as long as possible: this is, after all, my life. I think long term economic trends point in this direction though.
