In August 2022 I gave a talk about recent Fields medallist Prof Maryna Viazovska and some of her mathematical work. This was a Monash LunchMaths seminar.
May 12 talk on Maryam Mirzakhani
On May 12, 2022, I gave a talk at Monash for undergraduate students on some of the mathematics of Maryam Mirzakhani.
Five-minute surrealist antiwar exposition of topological data analysis
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”
General tips for studying mathematics
I don’t know that I would have anything to say that’s not a platitude, but here are some thoughts.
Summarise your maths research in one slide, Dan
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.
One line Euler line
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.
I got problems – congruence problems
On 7 December 2020 I gave a (virtual) lecture at the Australian Mathematical Olympiad Committee’s School of Excellence on congruences.
From Here to Hensel
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.
Return of the Euler-Fermat theorem
A long long time ago, in a galaxy far away, I wrote up an account of the Euler-Fermat theorem for school students.
Topology: The shape of space
Monash Open Day in 2020 was a purely online affair, thanks to COVID. I recorded a video talking about Topology: The Shape of Space.
