SCC 56: Jordan Ellenberg


On this episode of Strongly Connected Components Samuel Hansen is joined by Jordan Ellenberg, University of Wisconsin professor and author of the book How Not to Be Wrong. They talked about why the son of two statisticians becomes a mathematician, how a year of writing fiction taught him he needed to do mathematics, where his book and article ideas come from, and he gives Samuel some dating advice he learned from slime molds. Be sure to read Jordan’s blog, follow him on twitter, and check out his talk, among so much other cool mathematica things, on April 18th at MathFest!

    Hello there, as far as I can recall Jordan mentioned an analysis blog quite enthusiastically. Can you please remind me of its address? Many thanks.
