Best Of Math
Here’s what I think are some of the best math-related things I’ve written:
Engineering is finding the answer to a problem without solving it. People aren’t trying to engineer enough, so I wrote this to change that.
Here’s how to use a four-function calculator to check that 123,456,789,011 is prime in fifteen minutes. Discusses the Fermat test and the Miller-Rabin test.
Discusses some techniques in computational geometry through the proofs of some lesser-known theorems.
Talks about the Euler characteristic, Kuratowski’s and Wagner’s theorems, Fáry’s theorem, and the crossing number inequality. No prerequisites, but knowledge of graph theory is useful.
