Amongst the many petition tracking sites (which help to avoid the actual site crashing), this is quite a good one, as it puts the constituencies in order of how many signatures they have. Proud to see that Cambridge is third. https://t.co/59rVx02Weo #RevokeArt50Now

A fractal impossible object, packed with impossibility at multiple scales!

Nidhal Selmi drew this. It's a blend of the Sierpinski triangle, a famous fractal, and the Penrose tribar, a famous "impossible object".

Let me explain how it's connected to sheaf cohomology.

OMG this makes me so happy!!!! Karen is not only a great mathematician, but a wonderful mentor/sponsor. She is one of the main reasons grad school was survivable and even sometimes enjoyable for me and other women in the program. So well deserved. https://t.co/TsxME0Z7G7

The well-known #Gaussian integral over the reals extends naturally to positive matrices. (Can it be extended beyond that?) #funtime #calculus #algebra #math pic.twitter.com/SA7SL50EaH

La matemática Karen Keskulla Uhlenbeck (1942) ha ganado el Premio Abel por sus aportaciones en análisis, geometría y física matemática. Es la primera mujer en conseguirlo. ¡Enhorabuena!
Un gran referente. Nos hablaba de ella Elena Vazquez Abal https://t.co/u3cqdbnvsW

Homophobia cannot be allowed to influence education. Queer kids have the right to grow up knowing they are loved unconditionally.

This feels like a creeping return to Section 28

Vectors in Minkowski space can be nicely represented using 2x2 matrices. In this representation, Lorentz transformations can be expressed as matrices L in SL(2,C) that transform a 2x2 matrix/vector V to LVL*. #algebra #physics #math pic.twitter.com/XgzVo3QTaw

A cube whizzes past at nearly the speed of light, c. What do you see? Lorentz contraction squashes the cube. But you *see* it as rotated and bent, since light from different parts of the cube take different amounts of time to reach you - and it's moved a lot by then!
