Math3ma + PBS Infinite Series!


Hi everyone! Here's a bit of exciting news: As of today, I'll be extending my mathematical voice from the blogosphere to the videosphere! In addition to Math3ma, you can now find me over at PBS Infinite Series, a YouTube channel dedicated to the wonderful world of mathematics.

Infinite Series (a part of PBS Digital Studios) was formally hosted by Kelsey Houston-Edwards, a PhD candidate at Cornell University. Over the past year Kelsey has written and hosted 45 marvelous videos on a wide variety of topics. Here are a few!

As Kelsey announced in her latest video, The Heat Equation, she'll be using the upcoming year to finish her dissertation. (Best of luck, Kelsey!) Physicist Gabe Perez-Giz -- former host of PBS SpaceTime -- and I will step in as hosts for Season 2.

The first two episodes, including today's "The Multiplication Multiverse," were inspired by recent posts here on the blog, and I had a lot of fun finding ways to pare down research-level mathematics. There is a vast world of beautiful, enticing math that's often hidden behind lofty language. But it's far too exciting to remain hidden! With that said, I sincerely hope that Season 2 of Infinite Series will continue to serve as a warm invitation into the wonders of mathematics.

So without further ado, here's the first episode. It's the first of a two-part series. I'll be sure to post the second video here once it's live. And after this mini-series, Gabe's got some exciting things to share too!

Be sure to subscribe to the channel, new videos come out each Thursday!


And here's part 2!

PS. Big shoutout to producer Rusty Ward and animators Ray Lux and Louis Costa for making my drawings come to life!
