Miscellaneous links

It's a good day for math blogging. Gil Kalai, guest blogging for Terence Tao, explains the weak -net conjecture for convex sets (and can I say that I'm very jealous of the impeccable LateX typesetting on Leo Kontorovich presents an interesting example of the breakdown of discrete intuition from the Steele book on the Cauchy-(Bunyakovsky)-Schwarz inequality. Andy Drucker talks about why convexity arises naturally when thinking about multi-objective optimization.


  1. Suresh,
    I am an avid reader of your posts. Although I am not a true math guy, I like to follow the links you provide an am fascinated by the research problems in math.

    btw, one of your friends - Sunil thomas from Delhi was my senior in the PhD program here at Penn State. That's how I got to your blog.

    Keep blogging!

  2. Thanks ! I haven't talked to Sunil for a long time. I need to do something about that !!

  3. Thanks for the plug, Suresh!

    PS It's Kontorovich -- need some way of distinguishing myself from the much more famous namesake!

  4. Yeah I'm jealous of wordpress aswell. It's take too much effort to import pictures into blogspot!
