|Updates on Tao's research and expository papers, discussion of open problems, and other maths-related topics. Blog posts, which date to February, 2007, have included "Riemannian manifolds and curvature" and "Sailing into the wind, or faster than the wind" and "The crossing number inequality" and "Amplification, arbitrage, and the tensor power trick" and "Uchiyama's constructive proof of the Fefferman-Stein decomposition." See, in particular, his collection of experimental mathematical games, simulations, and other apps, which include a solver for Lewis Carroll logic puzzles, the Gram-Schmidt orthogonalisation process, Mobius transforms, Taylor and Laurent series, the fundamental theorem of calculus, the residue theorem, Besicovitch sets, conformal compactification, honeycombs, an exponent calculator, and multiple choice Java quizzes on logic, set theory, functions, linear algebra, real analysis, and Fourier analysis. Tao, the 2006 Fields Medalist, has also provided career advice and engaged the public around clear expository writing.|
