Having a slow evening so deciding to just learn new things and code fun stuff. I thought I'd support +Drew Neil whose vimcasts (http://vimcasts.org/) are awesome so I picked up his book.

Maryam Mirzakhani, the first female winner of Fields Medal

Often described as the "mathematician's Nobel Prize", the Fields Medal has never been won by a female mathematician since it was established in 1936. Until now.

"A native of Iran, Maryam Mirzakhani is at Stanford University in California. She won for her work on “the dynamics and geometry of Riemann surfaces and their moduli spaces.”

“Perhaps Maryam's most important achievement is her work on dynamics,” says Curtis McMullen of Harvard University. Many natural problems in dynamics, such as the three-body problem of celestial mechanics (for example, interactions of the Sun, the Moon and Earth), have no exact mathematical solution. Mirzakhani found that in dynamical systems evolving in ways that twist and stretch their shape, the systems' trajectories “are tightly constrainedto follow... more »

So I've moved my website from my own +DigitalOcean server to github. I decided to use my digital ocean to set up my own gitlab server.

As far as I can tell gitlab is a basic github like. I'll be using this private server for collaborations that I didn't necessarily want to be outwards facing just yet. I was doing this already in a way by having bare repos on my server but have used the github issue tracker etc extensively over the summer I really wanted something similar...

I posted a couple days (weeks?) ago a gif similar to this: showing the distribution of states in a two dimensional markov chain corresponding to 2 queues in tandem. Here's two very similar gifs but one is the analytical values and the other is simulated values (using something similar to this: Simulating a Queue: Basic Discrete Event Simulation). The point of simulating this is to basically check that the analytical model is correct so that we can use it going further.

I'm going to write up a blog post about this sometime over the next couple of days...

It's almost a shame that we're still 'stuck' publishing for the paper format as gifs and/or other dynamic things (like including code snippets) would be pretty cool to include in publications... I'm sure that'll happen eventually...

I've had a very productive day working on a class website.

This is all part of a move from my django based database to a jekyll based system. 

For what I need, this more light weight solution make a lot more sense.
I'm super happy to have gone via django though because the database + templating framework is something I've taken with me to jekyll but now different categories of blog posts basically serve as my database. This has the advantage of helping me stay organised but also being super readable and easily editable.

You can see the latest version of my base site here: http://drvinceknight.github.io/

If I understood things like I do know when I bought that I would  have probably gone for .org so that's one thing against it but I also think drvinceknight.github.io isn't necessarily a mouthful and has the advantage of telling 'people in the know' exactly where everything is hosted... If you've read this far: do you have any thoughts?

A part from that next steps include stealing, imitating, copying, stealing +Theron Hitchman's bootsrap code as the responsive css that I've currently got is very very basic.

Anyway my head hurts from a very efficient day of sitting in front of a computer so I'm going to go for a run now.___

Operational Research conferences can be extremely beneficial to those without a mathematical background. Well worth a read of John Frankish's (the lead of the Mathematical Modelling Unit at ABCi, Aneurin Bevan UHB) blog, reflecting on the recent ORAHS conference, explaining how he's now recognised that maths is more than just about numbers and how it can be used to improve patient care. Would be great to see more healthcare workers attend future OR Healthcare conferences to improve engagement and impact in future:

Sage 6.3 was released on 10 August 2014.

Hi,

Andy, Nich, and Jon -- three undergrads -- did a bunch of work on
SageMathCloud (https://cloud.sagemath.com) recently.  In particular, they switched it to Bootstrap 3 from Bootstrap 2, which is a lot like changing a nontrivial project to Python 3 from Python 2 (e.g., some dependencies never got ported by
their devs, etc.).


To try out the file history -- which is still very new and untested --
go to account settings and click the box next to "Track revisions:
record the changes you make on a file".
Then when you open most codemirror-editor type files, you'll see a
button "History".  Make some edits, make some edits as another user
(or another tab), etc.  then click on "History".  You'll get a slider
that lets you browse
past versions.  It gets updated automatically.

Just met with the good people at #pcutl . Over the next month or so I'll be planning the research I plan to do for the last (non 'obligatory') part of this educational process. 

I have bought three new books looking at the design of questionnaires as this will play a big part in the work.

Maryam Mirzakhani, the first female winner of Fields Medal

Often described as the "mathematician's Nobel Prize", the Fields Medal has never been won by a female mathematician since it was established in 1936. Until now.

"A native of Iran, Maryam Mirzakhani is at Stanford University in California. She won for her work on “the dynamics and geometry of Riemann surfaces and their moduli spaces.”

“Perhaps Maryam's most important achievement is her work on dynamics,” says Curtis McMullen of Harvard University. Many natural problems in dynamics, such as the three-body problem of celestial mechanics (for example, interactions of the Sun, the Moon and Earth), have no exact mathematical solution.

New at Casting Out Nines: My take on yesterday's Chronicle article about using data to "fix the lecture". TL;DR the original article unwittingly nailed the real problem here, which has a lot more to do with people and institutional culture than data and teaching methods. It's a problem about priorities. ___"It’s just what I tell my kids, who are getting old enough to learn about time and task management: If you really want something to happen, you make it a priority and make the time."

TLDR: Linear algebra and probability make blob move and I thought it looked cool...

Here's an animation of the probability distribution of the states of a Markov chain representing two queues/service stations one after the other where people can only leave the first queue if there's a free server at the second station.

i (the y-axis) shows the number of people waiting for a free server at the first queue or in service at the first station.
j (the x-axis) shows the number of people waiting for a free server at the second queue or in service at the second station.
The actual values just show how often the entire system is in a given state.

The animation is over the arrival rate (how often people turn up). So for a very low arrival rate: we're almost always around the (0,0) state and then that slowly moves to the boundary on the bottom right where... more »

The animation is over the arrival rate (how often people turn up). So for a very low arrival rate: we're almost always around the (0,0) state and then that slowly moves to the boundary on the bottom right where the system is basically full.

This uses basic Markov chain ideas which are a way of studying random 'stuff' which makes use of some basic linear algebra. If anyone is interested I could write a blog post going in to a few more details... but basically I just thought the blog looked cool and in particular the last transition around Lambda = 4.5 was neat (this really shows the tipping point at which the system becomes overwhelmed).

The main reason I've plotted this is that I am comparing this Markov chain to a simulation of people actually going through the queues (this is some work that +James Campbell and I started this summer) and wanted to make sure they agreed (this is called validation). So I ran a bunch of experiments over night and woke up to this cool collection of pics and thought a gif would be a neat way to see it all together.___

What did you use the library for while you were studying?

The school of Mathematics library has asked me to be in a short induction video they're putting together for students and they will be asking me the following three questions:

1. What did you use the library for while you were studying?
2. Why should MATHS students use the library?
3. True or false: MATHS students don’t need books.

If anyone has any thoughts on any of those I'd like to hear them :)

Personally I think my current answers (keeping them short for now) would be:

1. I used books and the peace and quiet.
2. Books, peace and quiet, breakout rooms and good wifi.
3. False

You probably remember from school how tedious and error prone it can be to calculate by hand multiplications and divisions involving many digits.  Meanwhile addition and subtraction of long numbers is fairly pain free.  Science, Technology and Engineering got a tremendous boost 400 years ago when John Napier first published a table of numbers that almost magically turned multiplication and division into the much simpler and less easily messed-up addition and subtraction.

In 1614, John Napier, a Scottish Laird published Mirifici logarithmorum canonis descriptio, – A Description of the Admirable Table of Logarithms.

Napier’s logarithmic wizardry was rooted in trigonometry. As the Middle Ages ended, many practical problems — such as mapmaking and surveying — required sophisticated methods for calculating with lines and angles. Various savants of the era had noticed that relationships among trigonometric functions — you know, sines, cosines, that stuff — could be used to simplify certain calculations. Multiplying two numbers, for instance, could be accomplished by a process called prosthaphaeresis. It involved addition of the numbers’ cosines, which could be looked up in trigonometric tables.

Napier developed a method for short-cutting that process, deriving logarithms of sines. His book provided tables of logarithms that essentially reduced multiplication to addition, division to subtraction. Since logarithms are, in essence, exponents, or powers of numbers, they could also be exploited for calculating things like square and cube roots.

Napier had spent nearly two decades computing millions of logarithm values before publishing the tables in his book. Still, he published several years before the Swiss watchmaker Joost Bürgi, who also gets credit for developing the logarithm idea during roughly the same time period.

Napier’s and Bürgi’s systems for conceptualizing logarithms weren’t quite the same, and neither matches modern versions precisely. Today’s commonly used base 10 logarithms were introduced in primitive form by Henry Briggs after Napier died in 1617. (Briggs acknowledged, though, that it was Napier’s idea to do so.)

Article here: http://goo.gl/bd4Inq

You can actually read the book(s) online.

Since nothing is more tedious, fellow mathematicians, in the practice of the mathematical arts, than the great delays suffered in the tedium of lengthy multiplications and divisions, the finding of ratios, and in the extraction of square and cube roots – and in which not only is there the time delay to be considered, but also the annoyance of the many slippery errors that can arise: I had therefore been turning over in my mind, by what sure and expeditious art, I might be able to improve upon these said difficulties. In the end after much thought, finally I have found an amazing way of shortening the proceedings, and perhaps the manner in which the method arose will be set out elsewhere: truly, concerning all these matters, there could be nothing more useful than the method that I have found. For all the numbers associated with the multiplications, and divisions of numbers, and with the long arduous tasks of extracting square and cube roots are themselves rejected from the work, and in their place other numbers are substituted, which perform the tasks of these rejected by means of addition, subtraction, and division by two or three only. Since indeed the secret is best made common to all, as all good things are, then it is a pleasant task to set out the method for the public use of mathematicians. Thus, students of mathematics, accept and freely enjoy this work that has been produced by my benevolence Farewell.

Is Engaging in Science Outreach Damaging to Scientists?

A few years ago, I started posting about science publicly on Google+. I did it in my spare time because as a scientist, it was obviously a topic I was interested in. I also found the public ignorance about science particularly depressing. This, coupled with a woeful misrepresentation of science on the part of many science journalists on popular media meant that even if the public cared enough to read about science, they would be ill-informed by sensationalised over-hyped articles. There was only one solution, as I saw it - the scientists themselves should engage directly with the public. This has always been my personal motto when it came to doing science outreach (http://goo.gl/Ts8oYf and http://goo.gl/W1XKHT). 

So it is with dismay that I read this 'joke' article on Genome Biology by Neil Hall... more »

This, coupled with a woeful misrepresentation of science on the part of many science journalists on popular media meant that even if the public cared enough to read about science, they would be ill-informed by sensationalised over-hyped articles. There was only one solution, as I saw it - the scientists themselves should engage directly with the public. This has always been my personal motto when it came to doing science outreach (http://goo.gl/Ts8oYf and http://goo.gl/W1XKHT). 

So it is with dismay that I read this 'joke' article on Genome Biology by Neil Hall (http://goo.gl/oX52dI). In it, he defines the K-index (Kardashian Index) as:

“a measure of discrepancy between a scientist’s social media profile and publication record based on the direct comparison of numbers of citations and Twitter followers.”  A high K-index indicates that the scientist may have built their reputation on a shaky foundation, while a low K- index indicates that the scientist is not being given credit where credit is due.

An unfortunate consequence of the K-index is that it is damaging to other scientists who genuinely engage in science outreach on social media. Scientists are evaluated by their publication records. People who have a low K-index will likely be older and well-established. Someone who started publishing 30 years ago and just joined Twitter will have a very low K-index. On the other hand, early career researchers who haven't published a lot but engage in outreach can appear to have a high K-index. The author also advises people that "if your K-index gets above 5, then it’s time to get off Twitter and write those papers". Never mind that only 1% of scientists regularly publish one paper a year (http://goo.gl/yvd1Yv). Do we really want the other 99% of scientists to stop writing about science on social media?

I understand that this paper was 'semi-serious'. I understand that there are certain science outreach 'personalities' on social media who regularly over-estimate their popularity and importance. But I can already imagine how this index can be used to patronise young researchers who engage in outreach. I can imagine the smirks from senior scientists at job interview panels and evaluation committees. 

This 'joke' article is only funny if you are a senior tenured professor with lots of papers and yet have a low follower count on social media. "Ha ha, let's laugh at those silly scientists doing social media outreach when they should be writing papers!" The K-index trivialises those of us who work hard to communicate science with the public. 

I don't earn anything from doing outreach. It doesn't benefit me professionally. I don't have better job prospects because I have an audience. I do it because as a scientist, I feel I have a duty to directly engage with the public. Doing outreach doesn't harm me either. I hate to think that someday, it might. I hate to think that I might be taken less seriously because I do this. I especially hate to think that other young researchers might be discouraged from engaging in outreach because of this. 

Thanks to +Tommy Leung for the discussion that inspired this post.

Google scholar has added a paper to my profile that I perhaps can't take credit for: http://goo.gl/xr9SgC

My dad (+Vincent Knight) and I have the same name (and middle initial): I'm a junior. This once lead to a bank error but otherwise has always been a kind of quirky cool thing. Google Scholar just gave me one of my dad's papers. It's pretty easy to see that it's not mine though (publication date:1976, my DOB: 1984, field of the paper: physiology, my field: mathematics).

I almost don't want to remove it from my profile though as it's kind of cool (and who knows it might well prove useful when it comes to seeking a promotion! lol).

Better late than never. For the #mathed conference we held in Cardiff I ordered this wireless microphone to try and use in conjunction with hangouts on air. It arrived yesterday (about 2 weeks too late). It cost £10 so who knows if it's any good but I might give it a try in the near future...
