Why am I writing for a math blog, when I can’t even motivate myself to work on the math essay I’m supposed to be working on? This is just one of the many mysteries I’ll delve into on Concrete Nonsense.
I’m currently spending a year at Cambridge doing Part III; next fall, I’ll be starting a PhD at Columbia. My mathematical interests jump around a lot, but “geometry, topology, algebra, and physics” would be a fair start at a description. In my first “real” post, however, I’ll be talking about some recreational math(s) instead—stay tuned!
You can call me APE (my initials) for short.
