Links: Some Maths to Look At
June 19, 2010 Leave a comment
Just links to a couple of mathematics posts that I thought were interesting:
Combinatorics and More: Two puzzles which sound like they involve some work, but in fact both use the same trick to make them very easy. (Another puzzle which has a hard way and an easy way is the Two Trains Problem)
Bright Bubble: Euler’s solution of the Basel problem (finding the sum of inverse squares). Euler’s way of doing things are always worth a look.
Math Less Traveled: Proof that pi is irrational, broken up into lots of small and easily readable articles.
