The oddest numbers. Brian Hayes riffs on a number-theoretic recurrence that was old when Dijkstra studied it.

Other recent entries include Hayes' discovery of Python, clopen intervals, and asymptotic analysis, reversible computing, and some recent papers on social networks, quasicrystals, and spinorial formulations of NP-hard problems.

Time to add another entry to my RSS reader's subscription list...

Thanks! I made an LJ feed (livejournal user brianhayes) in case someone's interested.

Finally! Something to feed my budding interest in mathematics that's not over my head! I'm enjoying the blog, Professor Eppstein. You're quite handy with a camera.

I hadn't. Thanks for the feed. I'm becoming downright inundated with the sheer volume of excellent reading material. Far too little of it has been math, especially since I'm entering UCI as a CS major!
