List of mathematics blogs
This is a list of some quality mathematics blogs. These blogs are written by mathematicians, math professors, Ph.D. students etc.
1) Gowers's Weblog - Mathematics related discussions (by Sir William Timothy Gowers)
Timothy Gowers is a British Mathematician. He is a Royal Society Research Professor at the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics at Cambridge University and also a fellow of Trinity College. His main mathematical interests are analysis and combinatorics, with a particular focus on the burgeoning area of arithmetic combinatorics. He also has an interest in general questions about mathematics, and how it is discovered and transmitted—hence this blog.
Gowers was born on 20 Nov 1963 in Marlborough, Wiltshire, England, United Kingdom. Gowers has won several big awards - Fields Medal in 1998, Prize of the European Mathematical Society in 1996 and Gold Medal, IMO in 1981. He is also the author of the book Mathematics: A Very Short Introduction. More information about Gowers can also be found here:
2) Not Even Wrong (by Peter Woit)
Peter is a Senior Lecturer in the Mathematics department at Columbia University, where he teaches, do research, and is responsible for the department Computer system. In recent years, he's also been Calculus Director, coordinating Calculus teaching and implementing the use of the WebAssign online homework system in some of the Calculus classes. His academic background includes undergraduate and master's degrees in physics from Harvard, a Ph.D. in particle theory from Princeton, and postdocs in physics (ITP Stony Brook) and mathematics (MSRI Berkeley). He's been at Columbia since 1989, starting there as Ritt assistant professor.
His blog which is in existence since 2004 and contains more than 1000 posts, deals with topics in physics and mathematics. More information about Peter can also be found here:
3) Shtetl-Optimized (by Scott Aaronson)
Scott is an Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT. His research interests center around the limitations of quantum computers, and computational complexity theory more generally. Written in funny tone, some of his blog posts are categorized as 'Quantum', 'Metaphysical Spouting', 'Rage Against Doofosity', 'CS/Physics Deathmatch' etc.
4) Secret Blogging Seminar (by 8 Berkeley Ph.D. students)
This is a mathematics blog by a group of 8 Berkeley Ph.D. students - Scott Carnahan, Joel Kamnitzer, Scott Morrison, Chris Schommer-Pries, Noah Snyder, David Speyer, A.J. Tollandand Ben Webster. The blog is a commentary on their own research (representation theory, algebraic geometry, knot theory etc.), other mathematics pursuits and whatever else they feel like writing about on any given day.
5) The Unapologetic Mathematician: Mathematics for the interested outsider (by John Armstrong)
John is a former mathematician. According to John, this blog is mainly an expository blath, with occasional high-level excursions, humorous observations, rants, and musings. He writes about variety of mathematics topics, some of which are- algebra, geometry, combinatorics, topology etc.
6) Ars Mathematica - Dedicated to the mathematical arts (by Walt)
The only information I could find about the author of this blog is the first name. Although the author is unknown, this is a very informative blog full of deep and complex mathematical concepts.
7) The Mathematics Blog - Open University student blog aka Mathematics Diary (by Nilo de Roock)
Nilo is a Dutch Software Engineer based in Rotterdam, Netherlands. This blog is a logbook of his mathematics study at the Open University in the UK.
