Carnival of Math: October 2023
Welcome to Episode 220 of the Carnival of Math!
I'm Nathalie, the host of Infinitely Irrational and this month, I'm hosting the Carnival, a monthly blogging round-up. The Carnival of Mathematics accepts any mathematics-related blog posts, YouTube videos or other online content posted during the month: explanations of serious mathematics, puzzles, writing about mathematics education, mathematical anecdotes, refutations of bad mathematics, applications, reviews, etc. Visit the Aperiodical for more information.
Before you go - check out our latest podcast episode on Charles Dodgson (also known as Lewis Carroll - author of Alice in Wonderland!) on the left.
This "Spotlight on topology and algebraic geometry" article details the recent work by algebraist Iva Halacheva, algebraic topologist Marcy Robertson and low-dimensional topologist Zsuzsanna Dancso, who collaborated through the Sydney Mathematical Research Institute. The paper, published in Transactions of the American Mathematical Society, sets out a topological characterisation of the Kashiwara–Vergne groups.
