Don't forget that @realDonaldTrump remains @POTUS only because of the full support of the @GOP on the Hill, and now the AG. To date, just ONE Republican Congressman has called him out for his crimes. He tramples the Constitution only because the @GOP wear the same jackboots

If A,B are matrices, we cannot generally say that exp(A+B) = exp(A) exp(B). (The exact relation between them is given by the nontrivial Campbell-Baker-Hausdorff formula.) We can, however, express exp(A+B) as a limit of powers of exp(A/n) exp(B/n). #math #calculus #algebra pic.twitter.com/TVBm0i9SMV

Engel's Theorem is one of the first results one encounters in the theory of Lie Algebras. This is a field of #Mathematics that proved to be very useful in particle, #quantum, and #classical #Physics. #math #algebra pic.twitter.com/RW47Omc3th

Jacobi's "8th powers" identity came in handy in the counting of various string states in #stringtheory. As such, it is considered a key equation in supersymmetric string theory. (Ref: B. Zwiebach, A First Course In String Theory, 2nd ed., Section 14.6.) #physics #math #calculus pic.twitter.com/SbLNmAWPkB

A wonderful autobiography by 2019 @abel_prize winner Karen Uhlenbeck:https://t.co/v1BZO3PCoL
I really appreciate that she does not shy away from her humanity, and she acknowledges the social and political movements that pave the way for women and minorities in math.#AbelPrize pic.twitter.com/vslZEHu8GI

We made an AI smarter than any human, and instilled it with strong safety principles to not harm humans.
