About

I’m a math professor at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. The purpose of this blog is to record interesting things I read, see, eat, hear, or otherwise encounter. My professional page is here.  I wrote a novel called The Grasshopper King , which was published in 2003 by Coffee House Press.

    The meaning is roughly that of the colloquial ” Whatever ” .

  4. I have just read your -1/12 article — that is the name I have assigned to it — and it may be the best piece of popular mathematical exposition I have read in my 62.92060 years on the 3rd planet.

    The article is particularly pleasing to me because I have been following the recent -1/12 controversy on YouTube. It is a doozy, setting wonderful bait for future mathematicians and enthusiasts.

    Thank you!
