I’ll soon be giving what amounts to a tutorial for my UCLA Ph.D. students, who will be embarking on writing papers, and — as I was thinking about what materials to prepare — my mind went to a dark, sarcastic place.

It was Emmy Noether who realized that homology was an abelian group, rather than just Betti numbers and torsion coefficients: https://t.co/8fm8enmczS pic.twitter.com/a81ZAghXeh

The old saying, "category theory is general abstract nonsense," just may be nearing its expiration date 'cause applied category theory is on the rise! It's exciting to watch, and Brendan Fong & David Spivak have just released a gentle intro to the subject! https://t.co/t2IhjY8SzF pic.twitter.com/IX37QsOGba

David Spivak's talking about his NASA-funded work using topos theory to design a safer air traffic control system. A topos is a "mathematical universe", and he's using one where everything is time-dependent. Sheaf theory meets airplanes! https://t.co/kpaGkopKIe

I'm live-blogging the meeting "Applied Category Theory: Bridging Theory and Practice", which is happening at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Dusko Pavlovich just blew my mind about categories and computer security. Go here: https://t.co/2BcRIRztUh pic.twitter.com/Xk8Tbvg0KF

I spent the weekend with a group of physical chemists who confirmed by long-held suspicion that linear algebra is really all that matters. Ever.

Happy #PiDay2018

Short #python #numpy #montecarlo simulation approximating pi:

>>> import numpy as np
>>> N = 5 * 10 ** 6
>>> np.random.seed(0)
>>> points = np.random.random((N, 2)) # N random points
>>> round(4 * sum(1 for x, y in points if x ** 2 + y ** 2 <= 1) / N, 3)
