The Unapologetic Mathematician

Mathematics for the interested outsider

New Blath!

Well, as today’s main post sort of died, I really should post some good news. Jeff Morton has started a weblog! It’s a great coincidence, because just yesterday I was mentioning his use of spans in categorifying the quantum harmonic oscillator during my talk. I see good things coming from this.

  1. Hi, John. Thanks for noticing. I expect to have something worthwhile to post shortly, as I’m getting my thesis ready to put on the arXiv. When I do, I’ll probably write a few posts talking about what’s in it – including more stuff involving spans of groupoids and TQFT’s.

    Which reminds me – I like how well your posts integrate math notation: can you point me at an explanation of how to make that work on wordpress?

  2. There’s an explanation of it here. It’s basically just LaTeX, but with a different wrapper.
