Author:Brian Hayes
Description: In Hayes' weblog, the author of the American Scientist Computing Science column elaborates on those articles, posts errata, records notes from conferences in progress, and explores other topics. The blog dates back to January, 2006, and includes articles such as "Sudoku dans la Belle Époque," on precursors of sudoku and the puzzle's history; "Can You Divide by Three?"; "Grepping the Net"; "Life after algebra"; "Packed Primes"; "The oddest numbers," on Dijkstra's recursive fusc function; and "Summing up," research on the popular tale of a schoolboy-aged Gauss rapidly summing a long sequence of numbers. The blog offers these and other posts in a category dedicated to mathematics. See also American Scientist's collection of all Hayes' articles published in that magazine of the Sigma Xi, the scientific research society; and his books Group Theory in the Bedroom and Foolproof.
